Event Description


Electric Vehicle Day - San Diego
A National Drive Electric Week Event

Located at Qualcomm Stadium


Experience the excitement of driving electric at Electric Vehicle Day, San Diego! During this one-day event, learn why so many San Diegans are making the switch to electric vehicles. Whether you are interested in EVs for access to HOV lanes access, to save money on gas and maintenance or just to make the world a greener place, there is a car for every lifestyle.
