April is the Month to Drive Electric


Returning from last year, Drive Electric Week has evolved and expanded into Drive Electric Earth Day running all across the month of April. Promoting the use of alternative fuels and zero emissions nationwide.

There is at least one event in most states. Click here for a map of the events across the country.

Drive Electric Week has taken place every year since 2011, and is organized by Plug in America, the Sierra Club and the Electric Auto Association. Last year, 321 separate local events were hosted.

The range of vehicles is vast. You can expect to see staples like Tesla, BMW iSeries, the Nissan Leaf, and the Chevy Volt. You might also see some exotics such as Fisker Karma, electric motorcycles, and on rare occasions the Rimac Concept 1.

Drive Electric Week may have been replaced by Drive Electric Earth Day in April, but there will be another Drive Electric Week September 14-22. You can find a list  of already-registered events here. The list will expand over time and will probably cover more regions than Drive Electric Earth Day, so if you don’t see an event in your area this time around, keep your eyes peeled and you might find what you’re looking for in September.
