Event Report

On Sunday, September 17, 2017, Acterra gave a resounding 537 EV test drives at its second annual National Drive Electric Week event: Ride, Drive, and Be Green! Over 260 potential adopters, EV owners, and volunteers converged to share and receive information about electric vehicles, charging, leasing/buying, and living the “EV lifestyle.” EV Ambassadors and local dealers provided 40 vehicles, representing 13 makes and models, for viewing and test driving. We are confident that many of the event attendees increased their willingness to consider an electric vehicle for their next car purchase, and hope to see many new EVs on Bay Area roads as a result of this event!
