Arizona State Hosts Test Drive Event for National Drive Electric Week

Byline: Dawnee Fuentes, Arizona State University Blog Manager

In late September, the Arizona State University’s EcoCAR 3 team partnered up with GoE3, Valley of the Sun Clean Cities, ADOT, and Clean Air Cab to sponsor a test-dive event in regards to National Drive Electric Week.

A total of 12 different plug-in vehicles were hosted and allowed the public to view a wide array of different electric and hybrid vehicles on the market. This event reached out into the community and more than 80 people enjoyed learning about hybrid-electric vehicles, while approximately 40 test-drives were given.

It was an eye-opening event for the public to learn and experience the difference driving an electric car can make on a global and personal level. Arizona State hopes to engage more of the Phoenix community in future events.
