NDEW 2015

In order to better promote the benefits of EVs, EMC has created “6 things you should know about EVs“, a 2-pager document with basic info about electric vehicles.
Read our Press Release to learn more.

The NDEW 2015 was held from September 12 to September 20, 2015. With around 700 test drives over the week, more than a thousand visitors across the country, a wide range of EV models and surprising electric means of transports, launchings of new fast charging stations, conferences, wine tour, EV parade, and a ton of fun, it was definitely a diversified celebration.

You can visit the NDEW website to learn more about this initiative and see all the events happening in North America.
