Join Drive Electric Columbus as we celebrate National Drive Electric Week at the headquarters of Columbus Yellow Cab on October 1st, 2022 from 10 am to 2 pm.
We are pleased we can hold our National Drive Electric Week event at Columbus Yellow Cab headquarters as it features one of the Decentralized Mobility Ecosystem hubs, a project which was formed in partnership with Clean Fuels Ohio. There will be 3 mobility hubs in Central Ohio and each will consist of publicly available EVs and charging infrastructure owned by Columbus Yellow Cab for use by its taxicab drivers, other professionally employed transportation service drivers, and licensed drivers for personal use. The EVs will be accessible through the Columbus Yellow Cab app and you will also find to access keyless entry and digital transactions. To learn more about this project please check out: https://cleanfuelsohio.org/decentralized-mobility/
We will have an Electric Car Show (all participants will receive a Car Show Dash Plaque). We will have a variety of awards and fan favorite categories for EVs in the show.
We will have a Kids Area where they can take an RC Car for a battery-powered lap or read "Sparky's Electrifying Tale". Plus they will get a chance to vote for the kid's choice awards in the Electric Car Show!
The Ohio State University EcoCar Team will be in attendance! The EcoCAR Mobility Challenge is an Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, General Motors, and Mathworks, and it is managed by Argonne National Laboratory. Students from 12 North American Universities must re-engineer a Chevrolet Blazer over four years to incorporate advanced propulsion systems, electrification, and connected and automated vehicle technologies.
We are expecting several fun partner displays this year! Stop by to speak with Community Advocates from IMPACT Community Action about the Columbus Solar Co-op, check out the adoptable trees from Green Columbus, have a caricature of yourself drawn by Kelci, and more! Polestar will have their EV on site and it will let you schedule test drives that meet you at your choice of location.
Are you EV curious? Drop by to see a variety of Electric Vehicles and ask EV owners questions about driving electric every day. Don't miss registering for the door prize drawings like a 1 year AAA Ohio Membership, MooMoo Car Wash gift card, and taking home some freebies from the National Sponsors.
