As part of Asheville's EV Weekend, right after the September 30th Blue Ridge Parkway EV Drive, on October 1st,  the Blue Ridge EV Club will host its 10th annual National Drive Electric event at the Asheville Outlets from noon to 4pm

At the National Drive Electric event there will be rides, drives, workshops, music, food, solar installers, solar demos, the latest EVs, classic EVs, e-bikes, e-scooters and a variety of other fun EV activities.  Plus you can enter a raffle to win a Fisher Ocean....

Come out and join the EV revolution...

This event is in collaboration with Tesla Owners-WNC, Tesla Owners-Triad, the Asheville Outlets, Land of Sky Clean Vehicles Coalition, and Earthshine Nature Programs.

The BRP EV weekend includes a food drive for the Loving Food Resources pantry:     The Tesla Clubs' "Fill the Frunk" drive at the 2019 BRP event collected 2456 pounds of food.  With an additional day and a host of non-Tesla vehicles added to the mix this year, let's build on that amazing show of generosity!

Though any non-perishable food items will be greatly appreciated, here's LFR's wish list:

Bag of Sugar
Box of Regular Coffee
Salt and Pepper
Can of Diced Tomatoes
Helper Meal - Tuna or Beef
Jar of Pickles
Box of Saltine Crackers
Box of Vanilla Wafers
Bottle of Yellow Mustard
Box of Brownie Mix
Foil Pack of Tuna
