There were 18 battery electric vehicles on display, including Tesla Models S, 3, and X; Ford Mustang Mach-E and Focus; Nissan Leaf; Chevy Bolt; Hyundai Kona; VW ID-4; Avanti conversion; Zero motorcycle; and Lion Electric school bus (provided by Vacaville Unified School District).

Four organizations had tables at the event to showcase:

The ~200 attendees included the following elected officials:
  • Brad Wagenknecht, Napa County Supervisor
  • Mark Joseph, American Canyon City Council
  • Beth Painter, Napa City Council
  • Anna Chouteau, St. Helena City Council

Event Description

 

All attendees and volunteers are required to wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all National Drive Electric Week 2021 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.

Current models of electric vehicles (EV) and electric bikes will be on display and their owners available to answer questions between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 26, 2021 at Napa Valley College during National Drive Electric Week.

Learn from EV drivers and enthusiasts about the thrill of owning and driving an EV, charging it at home (The permitting process for installing EV charging stations has been streamlined throughout Napa County), never having to go to a gas station, savings vis-à-vis gas cars, etc. A variety of electric bikes (cargo bikes, long-johns, Bakfiets, etc.), in addition to traditional designs, will be available to view/ride.

Visit PlugStar or Electric for All to compare vehicles, get equipped, and discover incentives. Find your ideal EV through Forth Drive Finder, EVLife's Concierge Services, or Drive Clean Bay Area's EV Discount Campaign.
