North Carolina Benchmarking Project: EV Ride and Drive Interview

Recently, Jason Wager (Planning Director at Centralina Regional Council) and Megan Upchurch (Director at Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition) were interviewed alongside Chris Davis (Operations Supervisor and Fleet Manager at Charlotte Department of Transportation) by the North Carolina Benchmarking Project of the UNC School of Government about last year’s successful Electric Vehicle Ride and Drive event.

For this event, Centralina partnered with the City of Charlotte and brought together manufacturers, employees, regional partners, and other municipalities to share ideas and learn from one another on the topic of electric vehicles. Through networking at this event, many ongoing relationships were developed, and vendors got a better idea of the increasing interest in electric vehicles. Below is the full interview which details the event setup, benefits, and lessons for other fleet maintenance managers who seek to host a similar event.
