National Drive Electric Week
Sep 20, 2015
|Day:||Sunday, September 20, 2015 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
We had 59 electric vehicles on display representing more than 1.5 million oil-free miles! The event also included lots of fun activities such as a scavenger hunt with prizes, three student robotics teams and some great exhibits by Puget Sound Solar and Torklift Central and several other vendors. We appreciated visits from special guests including Issaquah Mayor Fred Butler, state Representative Chad Magendanz, King County Council Chair Larry Phillips, and the Governor's Senior Transportation Adviser Charles Knutsen with the Governor's NDEW proclamation. The weather was alternately threatening, then warm and sunny, and the rain held off until we were packing up for the day. Our raffle drawing raised $220, which was more than enough to cover expenses. Raffle donations included a DVD of "Who Killed the Electric Car?" an RC Tesla Roadster with batteries, Nissan test drive gift certificates, and an EVSE!

Roger Swearingen, Seattle Electric Vehicle Association member, shows of some of his many electric vehicles and toys, including the ELETRIK Fiat 500e and his electric cooler on wheels. Not sure if riding on the Cruizin Cooler counts as a test drive, but if so, then we had dozens of drivers!
The event is pending. Please visit the Attend page to find other National Drive Electric Week events.
