Poolesville Green’s 2023 National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) Poolesville Day Electric Vehicle Show, despite the near hurricane weather, was still a huge success! We had nearly 200 vehicles registered and almost all showed up, we were the largest NDEW event worldwide (based on registered vehicles).  We expect even more visitors, more highlights, more big sponsors, manufacturers, and dealerships, more rides and drives, more giveaways, and more FUN this coming year!  Let's make 2024 the biggest and best year ever. Come help us make it happen!

For most of the answers to the Who, What, Where, When, and How (with maps) please check:


Why Come?
  • To learn more about your EV and other EVs from real EV owners, from dealerships, and manufacturers
  • To share what you know with other EVers and with the general public (help them "Join the rEVolution") 
  • And most of all, to have Fun!  Oh, and get free stuff.

Who Should Register? 
  • Anyone interested in getting event updates and changes.
  • Plug-In Electric and Plug-In Hybrid Electric Car Owners who love to show off their vehicles and to share with others: The more the merrier. (Free event shirt, "Swag Bag" and other goodies for Registered Vehicle Owners/Dealerships, first come, first served, while supplies last). Plus registered drivers only free drawings.
  • Sponsors: We need sponsors to help make this the best NDEW event ever. 
  • Media: Please help us get the word out! Exclusive access! Pre-event demonstrations.
  • Volunteers: We need the help (you get a T-shirt for that) :) 
  • ALL (Note: Only Sponsors, Volunteers, and EV / PHEV Car owners will get a FREE T-Shirt, but all can reserve one (for $18 donation)). 
  • Registering Multiple Vehicles: Bringing more than 1 Electric/Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle? Please register each (Note: Each registration will have to have its own email address, otherwise it will overwrite your 1st registration).  Use a 2nd email address on a new registration or tell us how many vehicles you are bringing in the comment section, this helps in our event planning.
