D$W/Festival Foods EV Fair West Allis, WI
October 2 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm UTC+0
Drive $mart Wisconsin along with Festival Foods, is proud to host SE Wisconsin’s first in-person NDEW event of 2021. This free public event will be held on Saturday, Oct 2nd at the West Allis Festival Foods, 11111 W. Greenfield Ave. from 10-2 pm. There will be dozens of EV and PHEVs on display and EV owners and selected dealers will be on hand to answer questions about EV technology and the benefits to EV ownership. If safety protocols permit, guests may have the opportunity to ride/drive the vehicles to see and feel how an EV actually drives.
Drive $mart Wisconsin, the nation’s largest driving organization dedicated to teaching fuel efficient driving, will host this NDEW event, the 7th that D$W has done over the past 4 years. For over 15 years, DSW and its over 800 members, has as its prime goal, to teach fuel efficient driving to the general public and to public/private groups and organizations. D$W also promotes viable green transportation options, such as hybrid, plug-in, and electric vehicles, through its local and regional D$W Meets, EV Fairs and NDEW events.
Festival Foods, Wisconsin based premier grocery chain, has made a commitment to exceptional guest service and to giving back to their communities through its Servant Leadership philosophy. Festival Foods will sponsor this NDEW event, to help educate their staff and guests about the benefits of EV ownership. This education is seen in the fact that Festival Foods has built Level 2 – J1771 EV Charging Stations at many of their 35 locations around Wisconsin, including 2 at this West Allis location. Festival Foods guest commitment is also seen in the fact that they offer 3-hour free charging to their guests, with $5 per hour charge after 3 hours.
This NDEW event will offer an EV/PHEV Owners Forum from 11-11:30 when we will discuss the benefits of EV/PHEV ownership. Our EV owners have over 500,000 miles of EV driving experience and will share their knowledge and expertise with all guests. There will also be a discussion of the benefits of $mart Driving that can increase mileage 10-30% and lower tail pipe emissions in your current vehicle. There will be representatives from the Sierra Club Great Waters Chapter and Wisconsin Clean Cities on hand to answer questions and hand out information of EV/PHEV technology and their impact on the environment.
If electric vehicles are the wave of the future, this NDEW event is the best place to begin your education in the future of transportation. Learn from the experts and see both used and new EV’s all in one place. If not ready to make the change to EV ownership quite yet, D$W can help you save money by giving you tips on driving your current vehicle more efficiently.
