national drive electric week


National Drive Electric Week in Knoxville is coming up and we want you to be there!

Knoxville area electric vehicle drivers and enthusiasts will be on hand to talk about the benefits of driving electric and also offer ride-and-drives. Owners will display the total number of petroleum-free miles driven for each vehicle to highlight the clean-air benefits and cost-savings of electric cars. The event is part of the ninth annual National Drive Electric Week.

The event will host electric and hybrid vehicles from various local dealers.  Some will be available for attendees to drive. Owners will bring additional vehicles, with some offering rides.  The purpose of the event is to allow the public to experience the efficiency, economic value, and fun of electric vehicles.

We are expecting the following cars:

    • Nissan LEAF courtesy of Ted Russell Nissan
    • Audi e-tron courtesy of Harper Audi
    • Chevy Bolt courtesy of Beatty Chevrolet
    • Ford Hybrid courtesy of Ted Russell Ford
    • Toyota Prius courtesy of Knox Toyota
    • Shockwave Defiant EV3 All-Electric Roadster Prototype courtesy of Shockwave Motors

In addition, you will find a list of cars and motorcycles that our volunteers are bringing elsewhere on this page.

Other products such as electric lawn equipment and electric bicycles will be on display as well.
