National Drive Electric Week
Sep 15, 2019
|Day:||Sunday, September 15, 2019 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
We had a most excellent NDEW event on Sunday 09/15 for the first of such events held in Sterling, VA. Great weather, a great crowd and 11 different EV models along with their owners answering questions and educating the public about EVs. We also had three Model 3 owners who gave test rides to about 50 people - opening a lot of eyes to the performance and capabilities of EVs with their new first-hand experiences.
We received a lot of great feedback from many of the attendees, such as: "The EVs here are really quite awesome, I didn't know much about them before today!"; "The test ride was the highlight of our week!"; and "I am really glad that I stopped by - I learned a great deal from the folks that I spoke to!" A big thanks to all of the many volunteers for all of their time and effort - there was a whole lot of educating going on. One of our volunteers reported nearly losing her voice by the end from talking to so many people.
With the great success of this first attempt - we will certainly be repeating this in years to come.

The EV-Curious public was keeping the EV owners busy all day - at each vehicle and at the information desk.
