International Drive Electric Week started in the United States in 2011 as "National Plug In Day" with the simple idea to hold simultaneous events across the country on the same day. By popular demand we have expanded to an entire week of events and changed the name to emphasise the thing we all want to do: drive electric. We expect International Drive Electric Week 2019 will again grow to include more events in more cities, and in more countries, with more drivers reaching out to share the many advantages of driving electric with the public.
Other countries where events are simultaneously held include: Japan, Canada, Belgium, Australia, NZ, and in over 200 cities in the USA (including Hawaii, Alaska and the Virgin Islands.)
National Drive Electric Week is presented by Plug In America, Sierra Club, and Electric Auto Association.
