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.|
We kept this event very informal and though it was small, everyone who attended stayed the entire time (longer, actually) and seemed to enjoy themselves. Since EVs are newer to the area, most drivers are just getting acquainted with the EV community and deciding how much they want to get involved. Now that this first event has taken place, many folks expressed interest in getting together again, so I'm hopeful the momentum will continue for a larger and more structured event next year. (And in the meantime I'm also going to put some pressure on my friend at the venue's management company to install chargers!)
One personal highlight is that we had 3 previous MINI E drivers attend the event, with one couple driving over 100 miles to join us in their Spark EV. Though the MINI E program had its share of issues, it definitely connected us with some great people with whom we remain friends 7 years later.
The event is pending. Please visit the Attend page to find other National Drive Electric Week events.
