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.|
Organized locally by the Tucson Electric Vehicle Association, NDEW-Tucson is the "kickoff party" to approximately 12
events where our EAA chapter displays electric cars between September and April each year. Because of the hot and humid weather we have in our area in mid September, we've learned that it's to our advantage to start bringing much of the scheduled NDEW activity indoors and simplify our outdoor presentation. The film "Revenge of The Electric Car" was presented with an enthusiastic group inside the air conditioned library meeting room, while a dedicated contingent viewed vehicles displayed in front of the library's main entrance. All vehicles displayed this year were privately owned or leased and the collection was a pleasantly diverse one, with the full compliment of OEM EVs currently available in southern Arizona and a couple of custom EV conversions.

Note the white Nissan Leaf parked in the foreground that's parked within the "Sonora" metallic art sculpture on the Jacome Plaza. A Tesla P85D, two more Leafs and a Chevy Volt are nearby.
