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.

In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it!! So, we've decided to completely nix paywalls here at CleanTechnica. But...

  • The Canadians have been involved with National Plug In Day (now National Drive Electric Week) since the 1st year, 2011. As with the U.S., the number of cities there has been increasing each year.

    The places I’m wondering about are the states and cities that have never had any NPID/NDEW activity. New Mexico, for instance. Same with Utah. I know that there are EV people in those states. And, you would also think that Reno, Nevada, which has that big Tesla Gigafactory being built, would have parked outside the construction site with a couple of EVs for an afternoon weenie roast. Any only one city in Oregon? . . . one of the ZEV compliant states, with Level 3 infrastructure all up and down I-5? What’s up with that?

    Not to publicly shame anyone in the above places but – as an Arizona resident
    (about as non-complaint-car and non-committal a place on a state governmental level with EVs as you can possibly get) – we at least have had our two largest cities in the mix and involved for 5 years in a row.
