The PEV Collaborative (PEV Collaborative) has identified ride-and-drive events as a high priority and a catalyst for the electric car movement in California. We know from industry experience that electric car ride-and-drive events lead directly to sales. Industry experts have said local automotive dealerships see an uptick in electric car sales and consumer interest immediately following these events.
Getting more electric cars on the road is key to successful mainstream introduction of advanced clean vehicles in support of California’s clean air, climate change, energy and economic goals. Consumer access and real-world experience behind the wheel of an electric car helps stimulate new prospective buyers and increases sales.
Below are the dates and locations for confirmed PEV Collaborative ride-and-drive events in 2017 being done in coordination with our contractor, Charge Across Town.
