    National Drive Electric Week Celebration returns to Town Square!

    North Boulevard Town Square, Baton Rouge, LA
    Baton Rouge EV Day is September 14, 2017!

    National Drive Electric Week, September 9-17, 2017, is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today's widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles and more. There will be a variety of EVs on display including those from Nissan, Tesla, GM, and BMW.

    Update! We will host a press conference at 11:30AM featuring LDEQ Secretary Dr. Chuck Carr Brown who will give us an update on the state's plans for the VW Settlement funding and his desire to add EVs to the state fleet. The Mayor President of East Baton Rouge will stop by between 1-1:30PM and State Department of Natural Resources' Technology Assessment Division Director Paul Miller and DNR Undersecretary Beverly Hodges are also expected to attend.
    Join us at Town Square in downtown Baton Rouge to learn more about these great cars and talk to people who own them and love to drive them. We will also show EV themed MotorWeek episodes on the media beacon with a press conference at 11:15AM. School groups are invited to join us on the town lawn. Stop by early and pick up some cool #NDEW2017 swag. Keep checking in with us for more details as they become available!
