Metroplex National Drive Electric Week Event September 17
National Drive Electric Week is a nationwide celebration observed from September 10 through 18 to heighten awareness of the widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric (EV) and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles and more.
They are fun to drive, less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, better for the environment, promote local jobs and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. This a time to talk to owners that have successfully made the switch. The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) and Dallas Fort Worth Clean Cities Coalition (DFWCC) are hosting the Metroplex events.
In 2015, North Texas owners broke the Texas record for most EVs in one place at the National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) event. This year NCTCOG and DFWCC are looking for another record-breaking gathering from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., September 17.
Consumers will be able to learn about cutting-edge EV technology and enjoy informational displays from organizations and technologies, hands-on activities for adults and children, entertainment, ride-and-drive opportunities for select EV models and possibly win the use of an EV for a day.
Location: Grapevine Mills Mall, in Grapevine. For more information and to sign up to volunteer or be a sponsor, visit DFWCleanCities.org/ndews.
