Event Report

Our second annual Drive Electric Earth Day event was part of Henrico County’s Energy Fair, which was held in three locations to promote social distancing. We had a display of eight electric vehicles, including a Model Y provided by Tesla Richmond, and our EV Experience educational exhibits at Deep Run Park.

Henrico County is celebrating Earth Day at three locations, including Deep Run Park. Drive Electric RVA will have a display of electric vehicles in the parking lot next to Playground 2, including a Model Y from Tesla Richmond. In addition, our EV Experience educational exhibits will answer your basic questions about electric vehicle technology.
