Virginia EV Chapters

Drive Electric RVA

Thornburg, VA – Drive Electric RVA President, Charles Gerena, at the ready to answer questions about EVs

Drive Electric Richmond Virginia

As a chapter of the Electric Auto Association, Drive Electric RVA promotes EVs as a fun, practical transportation alternative that also reduces air pollution and combats climate change. In addition, this club supports private and public efforts to accelerate the electrification of transportation and the use of renewable energy to generate electricity.

Drive Electric RVA follows the broadest definition of an EV: a motor vehicle that uses electricity as its primary fuel or to improve the efficiency of a conventional engine (National Renewable Energy Laboratory, October 2011). This definition encompasses hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids and all-electric vehicles.
