National Drive Electric Week - Sponsorship
National Drive Electric Week™ is an annual national outreach event to heighten awareness of today's widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. Thanks to local event organizers across the country and beyond, our reach is considerable. In 2015, we had 196 events which collectively reached over 130,000 people and conducted around 9,000 test rides/drives.
There are many opportunities for automakers, utilities, charging equipment manufacturers, environmental non-profits and government agencies to support, sponsor and participate at the national level as well as at local events.
At the national level, National Drive Electric Week is a collaboration between Plug In America, Sierra Club and the Electric Auto Association. Supporting National Drive Electric Week at the national level helps support our work in organizing the national effort, coordinating communications nationally, building awareness, and supporting local events.
National sponsors can receive recognition on the web site, in press releases and through social media. See the national sponsorship levels document for information on support levels and corresponding recognition programs.
National sponsorships can be facilitated through Plug In America, Sierra Club or the Electric Auto Association. Contact [sponsorship-2017 at driveelectricweek dot org] for more information.
Our continuing national sponsorship agreement with Nissan does not impose any restriction on local event organizers who are free to engage local dealers and automakers as local sponsors.
Our local events need sponsors, too. Local events are independently organized and event sponsorship opportunities will vary. Some examples of ways to help local events are:
