Event Report

Great event! We had 30 cars on display and lots of visitors. We also had three dealerships (Ford, Nissan and BMW) attend and give test drives.

We also had two other Raleigh NDEW events. One was held on NC State's campus and had 12 cars on display and lots of students attend, no test drives though. The other event was a display of 5 vehicles at the North Hills farmers' market. We had a Tesla, BMW, Ford, Chevy and Nissan on display and lots of foot traffic.

Event Description


Join us for an electric vehicle meet-up to celebrate National Drive Electric Week! Bring your car to display, or stop by to view electric vehicles and talk with owners. Also, enjoy free NC State Howling Cow ice cream!

Electric Vehicle Owners - We will have spots reserved for you in the Capability Parking lot. There will be plenty of signs guiding the way!

Visitors - If you are driving to campus to view the cars, we do warn that campus parking enforcement does issue tickets if a car is parked in a permit lot. There are many pay lots near by, if you want to be safe. The closest one is Capability South Pay Lot ($2 per hour). -
