**** Press Release **** National Drive Electric Week – Poolesville 2016

National Drive Electric Week – Poolesville 2016

Poolesville is on track for being the 1st or 2nd largest National Drive Electric Week on the east coast. Our 4th annual National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) – Poolesville Day event is tied with the Town of Poolesville’s 24th annual Poolesville Day event.  The combined two events draws in 10,000 to 15,000 people from the surrounding Maryland/Virginia/DC area. The event will be on Sept 17, 2016 from 10 am – 4 pm, located just across from the Bassett’s Fine Food & Spirits Restaurant.

The National Drive Electric Week  “is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today’s widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. ” – read more at https://driveelectricweek.org.

Our Poolesville event continues to grow thanks to the support of the Town of Poolesville, the Poolesville Day committee, and local Electric Vehicle (EV) organizations like MD Volt (http://MDVolt.org/), but mostly through the enthusiastic EV owners who share their time, their vehicles and their experiences with the general public. We also have dealerships, like DARCARS Nissan Rockville, King Volkswagen of RockvilleBMW of Rockville and others, that bring the latest technologies and their experienced sales people to can answer even more questions, Some will even provide on site test drives and rides. This event is also supported by local businesses, organizations and regular people like you (sponsors, listed below) that donate money and valuable items that we use to enhance the experience and to provide free give-a-ways at the event.

We will have Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) of every kind and model at the show. From the quickest production car made, the Tesla Model S (which happens to be all electric) that goes from 0-60 in 2.5 seconds to some of the coolest looking vehicles like the BMW i8 or the Tesla Model X. We will even have all electric motorcycles like the Zero.
