Midnight EV Drive on World Earth Day

April 21st 2016        
RE:LIVE All India event


Midnight EV Drive on World Earth Day is a RE:LIVE event, which a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness and highlight the benefits of electric vehicles.
​Electric Vehicles are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than petrol vehicles.
They are better for the environment, they promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
This RE:LIVE event has the idea to hold simultaneous events across the country on the same date, all to emphasize the thing we all want to do: drive electric.
We expect RE:LIVE events to grow and include more events in more cities with more drivers reaching out to share the many advantages of driving electric with the public.

Each event is led by local plug-in drivers and advocates and typically includes some combination of EV parades, ride-and-drives, discussions and more.
PlugInIndia.com - India's only web portal covering the EV industry provides support to the events throughout the country.
