Electric Vehicle Ride and Drives

Electric Vehicle Outreach and Ride and Drives

Our education and outreach events expose a new audience to electric vehicles and help show how easy it is to incorporate clean transportation into your life. See below for upcoming and past events.

We're partnering with Plug In America, NJ CAR, and New Jersey event hosts to organize a series of electric vehicle ride and drives throughout the state. These events allow participants to test drive an EV in a fun, informative, and engaging environment.

In addition to ride and drives, our electric vehicle and anti-idling teams bring their expertise to public outreach events - like green fairs and town festivals - to show people the benefits of driving electric, put idling misconceptions to rest (no, you don't need to "warm up" your car), and answer your clean transportation questions.

If you are interested in exploring the opportunity to host a Ride and Drive or have our clean transportation experts table at your event, please contact the Bureau at
