National Drive Electric Week is organized by Plug In America, the Sierra Club, and the Electric Auto Association.

NDEW – with hundreds of events coast-to-coast – runs September 10-18. It “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,” the organizers say.

‘Big Threshold’

“A few years ago, it would have been a pipe dream to imagine that there would be 500,000 plug-in cars on the streets of the United States – and more than a million worldwide,” Plug In America executive director Joel Levin said on Huffington Post on September 7.

“We are now poised to cross this big threshold in the coming week,” he said.

One of the major NDEW celebrants, EVgo, is offering free charging to EV customers at 1,000 locations with upwards of 700 fast chargers in more than 50 metropolitan markets this week.

‘A Celebration of the Electric Lifestyle’

“National Drive Electric Week is a celebration of the electric lifestyle,” EVgo VP Terry O’Day said in a release.

“One advantage of driving electric is never having to stop at a gas station again. This week, EVgo will make it even sweeter by making your public charging free nationwide,” he said.

‘Unstoppable’

“Our network is growing rapidly, and together with our drivers, is making the EV movement unstoppable.”

Also in celebration of National Drive Electric Week, EVgo is waiving the $4.95 setup fee for its no-obligation Flex Plan until September 18.
