National Drive Electric Week 2017 #NDEW2017

It’s that time of year again: It’s National Drive Electric Week! Well…actually, it starts on September 9th and goes through the 17th. As bookends to the week, I will be at the NDEW2017 gathering at Grapevine Mills Mall on Saturday, September 9th. Form 10:00AM until noon, there will be a gathering of plug-in vehicle owners, supporters and the EV-curious. It’s a;ways a good time and I’ll have the Chevy Bolt EV and Volt with me.

On the last day of NDEW2017, Sunday the 17th, I will have Bolt EVs at “Run with the Sun,” in Irving, Texas. At that event, I plan to take people on test drives. There’s nothing like “butts in seats” to prove how great EVs are!Run with the SunI hope to see you at these great events!

  1. While the transition to EVs drags along here, China is going to require that automakers build a percentage of “new energy vehicles” every year or buy credits from competitors who have an excess of the credits. The mandates are aggressive too: 8% of all vehicle sales must be hybrid, plug-in, or electric vehicles for 2018, 10% for 2019, and 12% for 2020.

    We may see the auto companies here get more serious about EVs simply because the Chinese are forcing them to build them for their market.
