National Drive Electric Week
Sep 12, 2015
|Day:||Saturday, September 12, 2015 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
The event highlighted the advances made in electric and hybrid-electric vehicle technologies; the economic and environmental benefits of owning an electric vehicle; and the infrastructure that serves electric vehicles throughout Rhode Island. The event was hosted at Garden City Center across from the Newport Creamery and centered around the gazebo. Planning organizations include URI Outreach Center, the RI Office of Energy Resources, RI Department of Environmental Management, and Drive Electric Cars New England.
Highlights of the day included an electric car show. EV owners popped their hoods, shared their EV experiences with others, and showed off their car! Attendees and shoppers stopped by to enter a raffle for a Garden City Center gift card, tickets to Battleship Cove and tickets to the Big E, courtesy of Chevy Volt, and also picked up some free swag. Shoppers and attendees checked out the latest in electric vehicles, including a 2016 Chevy Volt.
