A chapter of the Electric Vehicle Association, Drive Electric RVA promotes electric vehicles (EVs) as a fun, practical transportation alternative that also reduces air pollution and combats climate change. In addition, we support private and public efforts to accelerate the electrification of transportation and the use of renewable energy to generate electricity.

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. This definition encompasses plug-in hybrids and all-electric vehicles, including automobiles, motorcycles, scooters, skateboards and bicycles.
