September 27th – October 3rd, 2020

Electrify Your Ride Week

To celebrate this year’s National Drive Electric Week, Gen180 is going virtual. We’ve assembled a full week of electric vehicle online events from September 27th through October 3rd, and you don’t want to miss it! Don’t worry, these events won’t be anything like that soul-crushing corporate webinar you just endured last week. We’ve got happy hours, EV speed dating, and trivia nights all in the works to keep things fun while we learn about electrifying transportation. You could even win a kickass eBike! (see below)

These online events are open to EV owners, EV advocates, and the EV curious alike. We’ll hear from a wide range of panelists, from experts in the industry to your neighbor who drives electric. Thought-provoking conversations, opportunities to connect, and EV myth-busting are all on the menu. So check out the calendar below and start registering!
