Metro Richmond’s community for electric vehicle owners and enthusiasts
The mission of Drive Electric RVA is to promote electric vehicles (EVs) as a fun, practical transportation alternative that also reduces energy consumption and air pollution. We will meet these goals by providing opportunities in the metro Richmond region for EV owners to learn from each other and for the general public to learn about EV technology. In addition, we will advocate for increasing the use of renewable energy to generate electricity and for reducing the environmental impact of EVs over their entire life cycle.
We follow 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, including automobiles, motorcycles, scooters and bicycles. Consequently, all types of EVs are part of our growing community.
