National Drive Electric Week (NDEW), September 9-17, 2017, is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of the widespread availability of plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) and to highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. For the past two years, Dallas-Fort Worth has boasted the largest single-event NDEW celebration in the country outside of California, bringing together EV companies, advocates, private owners, and curious individuals for a day of electric driving, conversation, fun, and prizes!
This year, the regional celebration is growing to include a full week of activities and learning. The week will kick off on September 9, from 10 am-12 pm at Grapevine Mills Mall. Hosted by the Dallas Fort Worth Clean Cities Coalition and the North Central Texas Council of Governments, the event will feature EV industry and advocacy exhibitors, as well as the largest gathering of EVs in the state of Texas! EV owners and enthusiasts will show off their rides, discuss the ownership experience, and demonstrate this incredible – and incredibly clean – technology. Then, free open webinars will be held daily from Monday, September 11, to Friday, September 15 on a variety of EV-related topics including “EV 101,” and Workplace Charging. For more information, registration, and details about additional opportunities to experience EVs and learn about the role EVs can play in the reduction of transportation-related emissions, visit www.driveelectricdfw.org.
