Earth Month 2024 Event Recap

May 2, 2024

We believe every month is Earth Month, and April is no different!

Through­out April, many cities and orga­ni­za­tions host­ed a vari­ety of Earth Day cel­e­bra­tions across the state of Col­orado. Dri­ve Elec­tric Col­orado attend­ed 13 events through­out the month, serv­ing as a go-to EV resource for Col­oradans, answer­ing ques­tions about what it’s like to dri­ve elec­tric, charg­ing infra­struc­ture, state and fed­er­al tax incen­tives, rebates, and more. By pro­vid­ing event oppor­tu­ni­ties in the form of EV work­shops, show­cas­es, and ride and dri­ves, con­sumers, work­places, and com­mu­ni­ties were able to expe­ri­ence elec­tric vehi­cles first band and gain resources to help them make informed deci­sion about dri­ving elec­tric. Thank you to our Vol­un­teer EV Coach­es and part­ners for mak­ing these happen!

In total, we reached 3,060 atten­dees at events, and we engaged with 2,051 peo­ple.

We also con­duct­ed 1,664 ride and dri­ves — the major­i­ty of whom took an EV test dri­ve for the very first time!

Through­out the month, we sur­veyed atten­dees to learn more about their per­cep­tions of EVs, will­ing­ness to switch to an EV, and like­li­hood of dri­ving electric.

Here's what we found…

The major­i­ty of sur­vey respon­dents felt pos­i­tive­ly about EVs, even before approach­ing our Dri­ve Elec­tric Col­orado edu­ca­tion­al booth or EV ride & dri­ve expe­ri­ence. How­ev­er, per­cep­tions about EVs increased even more pos­i­tive­ly after tak­ing a test drive.

On aver­age from all of our April events, the most fre­quent­ly asked ques­tions were on the top­ics of: Tax Incen­tives and EV Charg­ing. Our team was glad to fur­ther dive into those top­ics with inter­est­ed con­sumers! Did you know that between state and fed­er­al tex cred­its, you could receive up to $12,500 in incen­tives for buy­ing a new EV? Or that 80% of EV dri­vers charge at home, but also use the app PlugShare to find near­by charg­ers when they're on the go? Learn more about EV Incen­tives and EV charg­ing, and as always con­tact a coach for more information.
