2016 Best.Ride.EVer! Statewide Ride-and-Drive Series
The PEV Collaborative has identified ride-and-drive events as a high priority and catalyst for PEV adoption in California. We know from industry experience that PEV ride-and-drive events lead directly to PEV sales. Industry experts have said local automotive dealerships see an uptick in PEV sales and consumer interest immediately following these events.
Getting more PEVs 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 a PEV helps stimulate new prospective buyers and increase PEV sales.
Below are the dates and locations for confirmed PEV Collaborative ride-and-drive events in 2016 being done in coordination with our contractor, Charge Across Town.
