What is a Ride and Drive?
At Drive Electric MN, we believe that one of the biggest barriers to electric vehicle adoption is lack of experience. A huge part of deciding on a new car is the driving experience, and folks just don’t know how much fun electric vehicles (EVs) are to drive. EVs offer instant power and one of the smoothest rides possible. Ride and Drive events give people that opportunity.
Ride and Drives typically consist of test drives, an electric vehicle owner display, and a presentation. Hosting an event for your workplace or community gives employees and community members an opportunity to try different EV models, compare and contrast, and learn about the technology firsthand. To help you organize your Ride and Drive, we encourage you to use our toolkit which includes a step-by-step checklist, literature to hand out, logistics sheets, social media guide, and more.
