Take part in our National Drive Electric week event at Bridgeview Plaza right off the Mid-Hudson Bridge.
If you are curious about EVs, this event is your chance to ask questions to existing EV owners and see the many options out there for those that want to stop buying gas! Local EV dealers will be bringing demos for test drives. Current owners will be happy to answer questions and help educate the public on EV ownership and it's advantages.
Look for the Green Balloons!
