National Drive Electric Week

2015-NDEW-group-4000

 

The National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today’s availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, motorcycles, and more. They are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

Electric Mobility Canada is proud to support all the EV drivers associations, and other organizers dedicated to promote this celebration throughout Canada. We invite you, your friends and colleagues to be part of the events in your region.
