National Drive Electric Week
National Drive Electric Week is a series of events put on nationwide to educate people about electric vehicles. EV’s have several advantages over gas vehicles and a few disadvantages. EV’s tend to have more acceleration, better handling, smell better, cost less to operate, cost less to purchase or lease in California, give access to the diamond lanes, are more efficient, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and are better for the environment than gas burning vehicles. While most are currently range limited to <100 miles freeway driving, newer models coming in 2016 and 2017 will have from 100 to 200+ mile ranges.
