Event Description


Welcome to National Drive Electric Week, 2023. This is our sixth year of Drive Electric events. Last year was a great event with 22 cars registered!  Let's make this our biggest year ever. Meet to see and learn about electric vehicles. We will have car demonstrations and answer questions. There will be access to the Library, restrooms and simple refreshments including water and soft drinks. There is a lot going on in Carlyle that day including a used book / video/ CD sale at our library.   *** Please take a look at the list of the many vehicles already  registered and we know more are coming including plug-in Jeep models, Mustang Mach-e, two Rivian vehicles and hopefully a Nissan Ariya.***  See  you there!

If you have a plug-in vehicle, please register via the "Participate" button to display and answer questions about your car. There will be a Level 2 Charger and some 110V outlets available for charging, so bring your portable charger if you would like to use the outlets! Afterwards people may choose to cruise their cars past the lake and meet at a local restaurant for lunch. Please contact us if you have any questions. See you there!
