The Office of Sustainability at Auburn University hosted National Drive Electric Week for the first time on Auburn’s campus on Wednesday, September 29th. The event allowed owners of electric vehicles (Evs) to provide the community with all they need to know about the up-and-coming trend. Here’s all you need to know about the electrifying event.
Why drive electric?
Driving electric offers a sustainable way to travel. They emit fewer greenhouse gases and air pollutants. What better way to learn more about electric vehicles than straight from those who own them? That’s what this event is all about. One couple explained why they love their electric vehicle:
“We always look for opportunities to tell people about how much we love it. We actually charge it up in our garage, and the car plans out our charging stops and times our entire trip. It’s just very easy.”
“Just like you go home and charge up your phone, we do the same with our car.”EV Enthusiast couple, Tesla Model Three owners
