In recognition of National Drive Electric Week, Roanoke Electric Cooperative will offer member-owners the opportunity to take a test drive in a Tesla Model 3.

National Drive Electric Week, Sept. 25 – Oct. 3, is billed as a nationwide celebration to raise awareness of the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars, trucks, and motorcycles.

“If member-owners are considering an electric vehicle or are just curious and want to test drive one, we encourage you to participate in this event,” said Patrice Jordan, the co-op’s coordinator of community relations and engagement.  “Participants will also have the opportunity to speak with staff about our EV Pilot Program.”

Test drives will be by appointment-only from Sept. 27 – 30, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the co-op’s headquarters.

Member-owners wishing to participate must have the following items:

  • A valid driver’s license
  • Proof of insurance (liability and collision)
