Join Annapolis Green for Kick Gas! as we bring you National Drive Electric Week, September 26-October 4. We’re part of a nationwide celebration to raise awareness of the many benefits of driving electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. EVs are fun to drive and one of the best things you can do to mitigate Climate Change! And… they are perfectly normal, cheaper than you think, stylish and easy. We think that’s pretty Kick Gas!
On October 1 we’ll Zoom in and virtually showcase various models of the more than 40 plug-in vehicles available today in a fun, interactive way. Hear from owners and learn what driving electric is all about.
