National Drive Electric Week Kicks Off Soon!

Dory Larsen | September 4, 2018 | Clean Transportation, Electric Vehicles

Are you curious about electric vehicles? Then mark your calendars because the annual National Drive Electric Week is right around the corner! This year, it kicks off on September 8 and runs through September 16. It’s a fantastic opportunity to see a wide range of models that are available, learn more from electric vehicle (EV) owners who will share their experiences, and at some events you can test drive an electric car!

Drive Electric Week started in 2011 as a single day event and has grown to an entire week. Each passing year adds additional cities and more drivers sharing the advantages of driving electric and has become an international phenomenon. Once again, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is proud to partner with other clean energy groups, dealers, and EV drivers at events taking place all over the South!

There are all different types of events including electric vehicle tailgate parties, press conferences, award ceremonies, informational booths, and most are led by local EV drivers and advocates. The vibe is designed to be fun and relaxed so you can feel free to ask questions and learn in a stress-free environment.
