The greater Charlotte region's National Drive Electric Week event was a great success! The location choice of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Government Center provided busy lunchtime traffic as well as attendance from key City of Charlotte decision-makers. Charlotte's city council environmental subcommittee meeting adjourned early to be in attendance at the event. Many interested visitors stopped to ask questions of our many contributors including: Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition, Modern Nissan of Lake Norman, Envision Charlotte, Sustain Charlotte, CATS, Charlotte Department of Transportation, Club Car, GEM Electric, and Charlotte Cycles. There is a strong interest in our community for EV's and other choices in how we get around! Our NDEW event was able to involve a broader cross section of the community and encourage this interest while promoting the excitement of driving electric.
