Event Description


Learn about emissions free electric vehicles!

The Philly EV Club, with Sierra Club's Southeastern PA Group, and others, are hosting the 1st National Drive Electric Week event in Philadelphia. This is a free event, and open to all, especially people who're not sure an EV is right for them.

Come meet other EV drivers, learn about the cars and showcase your own EV.  Folks will talk about personal & societal benefits of transitioning from gasoline cars to electric cars / vehicles (EVs). Learn about the new technology from neighbors and friends. 

Have an EV? Drive on over and share your story! The more variety of vehicles and stories we have, the better!

Whether or not you drive an electric car, please print one page with your car's emissions and charging info from the site.

We meet at the Ikea parking lot, by the Blink EV chargers. If you are interested, please sign up at the link and share with others -- Use the Contact button at the top of this page to contact the event organizer.
