America’s most visited city—hosting 60 million travelers a year—will put thousands behind the wheel of an EV for extended test drives, promoting adoption nationwide.

Event Description


Please note:  This event is being held in the public plaza area and is open to the public, however there will not be display vehicles, tables or ride-and-drives taking place. 


Drive Electric Orlando is a groundbreaking partnership between Orlando rental car agencies, hotels, and tourist attractions designed to offer vacationers and business travelers an exciting and convenient opportunity to "try out" a plug-in electric car during a visit to the World's premier vacation destination.

By making electric cars available as rental vehicles for travelers who visit Orlando from around the United States, the goal of the program is to speed up the nationwide adoption of EVs. 

On September 18th, the program will be making a number of exciting announcements.  Program partners will also be joined by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer who will declare it "Drive Electric Orlando Day" in the City Beautiful.
