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.

In conjunction with AB Tech, the Blue Ridge EV Club will host an in-person Drive Electric show on Friday, October 1st from 11 am to 2 pm.  The event will take place at AB Tech Community College, lot B17 where the chargers are located.

This year, we are also asking those who can to bring some food stuffs for Loving Food Resources, a local food pantry. Many people continue to have need for the basics and this type of food drive-car show has been exceptionally successful during the "Fill the Frunk" Tesla BRP Drive events. See the list below and come with your contributions.

• Talk to owners about their EV experiences. 

• New models will include the Tesla Model Y SUV, Volkswagen ID.4, Mustang Mach-e and more.

• Demonstrations of electric bicycles and other personal transportation devices. 

• Get answers to all your questions about Electric Cars: costs, range, charging and more!

• See public electric vehicle charging stations and how people charge when at home

• Meet members of the Blue Ridge Electric Vehicle Club
