National Drive Electric Week started in 2011 as National Plug In Day, it takes place during the week of September 10 – 18, 2016. Celebrations for this event will take place across the US, Canada and elsewhere. National Drive Electric Week is presented by Plug In America Sierra Club Electric Auto Association Nissan LEAF® is the exclusive automotive sponsor of National Drive Electric Week.
This nationwide celebration 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. They are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Are you considering going electric? Come talk to owners who have successfully done so.
Started in 2011 as National Plug In Day with the simple idea to hold simultaneous events across the country on the same day, by popular demand we have expanded to an entire week of events and changed the name to emphasize the thing we all want to do: drive electric. We expect National Drive Electric Week 2016 will again grow to include more events in more cities with more drivers reaching out to share the many advantages of driving electric with the public.
