Ride and drive events offer an opportunity for participants to experience the latest plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and can benefit your organization, as well as your event attendees. With more PEV models now available, many organizations are highlighting the technology by hosting a local ride and drive.

Here are some reasons to consider hosting a ride and drive.

1. Engage and Expand Your Network

On December 27, 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized its first-ever ENERGY STAR specification for electric vehicle chargers.

Homes in the U.S. are a key part of this supply/demand puzzle since almost every EV owner will have a charging station in their home or apartment.
