Join A National Drive Electric Event Near You

If you haven’t yet arranged to join or lead a National Drive Electric Week, get on it, yo!

Perhaps the absolute best way to increase the number of electric vehicle owners is simply to put people in the driver’s seat, where they can experience the excellent drive quality of EVs. I think the #1 barrier to electric vehicle adoption is lack of awareness/experience. National Drive Electric Week events are great ways to increase awareness/education, so if you can attend and get others to attend with you, you can really help the revolution along.
