Oklahoma City Drive Electric Event was held on September 12, 2015 from noon-4:00 PM in The Paseo Arts District. The weather was absolutely perfect, clear Oklahoma skies, high 70's, light breeze.
32 vehicles came out: 6 Teslas, lots of Leafs (including mine), 3 BMWs, several Volts, a Ford Focus, 2 motorcycles (a Zero, and a custom built racing cycle).
Tons of test ride/drives were given. My inexpert estimate is that we had 150+ visitors, not counting the nearly 50 volunteers who brought vehicles or otherwise helped out.
- Mayor Mick Cornett proclaimed 9/12-20 Drive Electric Week in OKC.
- OG&E, our electric service provider, was generous! They set a meter with a 240 V service at no cost, and brought EVs to show and volunteers to help.
- The OKC EV fleet manager came to talk about their vehicles and infrastructure efforts.

If you've never taken a spin in an electric car, now's your chance. We'll offer free ride-n-drives in a variety of plug-in vehicles including the Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt and BMWi3. Talk to the folks who own and drive them to learn how easy it is go electric.
We'll have a food truck for refreshments or visit a restaurant at the historic Paseo Arts District, which is also home to more than 20 art galleries plus shops on a two-block street that's maintained its original Spanish revival architecture
