Attendees were able to test drive a Tesla Model 3, speak with EV owners and find out other important information regarding owning and charging EV's in Carmel and Central Indiana. In addition, Motor, an EV short-term leasing program, brought a VW ID.4, Model Y, Model X & a Mustang Mach E. Last but not lease, Richard Steiner, the President of the local Hoosier EV Association brought his reproduction of a 1905 Waverly EV. This was the largest event we've held in central Indiana and every year since 2018, our attendance has doubled year over year. We're working on making 2022's event even larger and including more brands, e-bikes, e-motorcycles and other activities.

EV Ride and Drive events give the public the chance to test out new electric vehicles from a wide variety of manufacturers. This year, Motor Drive and several local automotive dealers will have cars to test drive. There will be information about how to charge and where to charge EV’s, how they can improve air quality and reduce CO2 emissions, how you can charge with solar power, how much fun they are to drive, and how owning an EV can save you money.
