Drive Electric Week Events through the Hudson Valley

So here are the dates folks! I’ve been so glad to see and hear of all the events in the Hudson Valley. Especially as the President of the Electric Auto Association for the Greater Hudson Valley. The one I’ve been dealing with the most is a virtual event in mount Kisco. https://sustainablewestchester.org/ctransportation/ and we are calling it:

As the website states:

National Drive Electric Week, Sep 26-Oct 4, 2020. For it is a nationwide celebration to raise awareness of the many benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more.

They are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Are you considering going electric? Come talk to owners who have successfully done so!

Each year, National Drive Electric Week includes hundreds of events in communities across the United States and around the world. This year, for the 10th annual National Drive Electric Week, we will be adding online events for the first time, including the NDEW Kick-Off Event event on Sep 24, 2020. Please see the events page for more information about national, state and local events near you.Register to attend an in-person or online event for a chance to win a $250 Visa gift card!

Ride Along With Sustainable Westchester.

Come join us to learn, share and discuss all things electric vehicles. We will have something for everyone and hope you will register with your cars to discuss the pros of owning EVs too. As more details unfold, we will issue updates to the National Drive Electric Week event site and here, too. So keep checking

Again I am the President of the Electric auto Association here in the Greater Hudson Valley. The Electric Auto Association is North America’s leading nonprofit that accelerates the adoption of electric vehicles by supporting its 80 chapters and thousands of members as they talk neighbor-to-neighbor in their communities about the benefits of driving electric.

Even as JP Morgan states:

The car industry is undergoing a radical transformation, with most carmakers agreeing the next 10 years will bring more change than the two previous decades. The next target date cited by automakers as a tipping point is 2025, when everything from materials and fuel to cost and the companies that build cars are set to look dramatically different. 

As Car and Driver adds:

Electric vehicles make up a small percentage of the total automotive market in the summer of 2020, but their appeal continues to grow as the automakers expand their range, performance, and style—and as recharging becomes quicker and easier. Shoppers looking for zero-emissions driving now have an expansive list of vehicles to choose from, with a wide variety of body styles and several different price points.

To make it easy on you, we’ve compiled them all in one place and listed them in order of their combined MPGe ratings from the EPA.

We’ve also included each one’s city and highway figures, too, for good measure. MPGe is a calculation of an electric vehicle’s efficiency, much like the miles-per-gallon rating of any conventional gas- or diesel-powered car, truck, or SUV. But a higher MPGe rating doesn’t always equate to a class-leading range figure. We’ve provided both of these numbers so you can choose the best EV for your family, lifestyle, and driving habits.
