The EV Ride & Drive is part of a larger effort coordinated by Clean Fuels Ohio, and their Drive Electric Ohio initiative, for the Midwest EVOLVE – Electric Vehicle Opportunities: Learning, eVents, Experience project.

Midwest EVOLVE and its Clean Cities partners (Clean Fuels Ohio) will hold events that provide a hands-on experience to test drive a variety of locally available EVs, which helps consumers and fleets determine the best vehicle(s) and charging options for their personal and/or fleet needs.

Drive Electric Ohio is a statewide initiative of Clean Fuels Ohio to promote the use of electric vehicles and improve access to charging infrastructure.


Why Drive EV?

The best way to reduce carbon emissions is to utilize the cleaner, greener, more renewable electric grid to power transportation. Only grid-rechargeable cars can attain the end goal of zero-emissions and ensure fuel price stability. In addition, plug-in electric cars make an investment in solar panels even more economically compelling.
