Zpryme, an Austin-based energy and technology research company, is partnering with CPS Energy, for the 2nd Annual SA Drive Electric. The event will offer electric vehicle (EV) ride and drives plus hands-on experience and education about EV charging stations and infrastructure for the San Antonio community. SA Drive Electric will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the CPS Energy headquarters located at 500 McCullough Avenue.
Anyone curious about EVs is encouraged to attend, as SA Drive Electric will allow drivers to get acquainted with the power and quiet ride of cleaner powered vehicles during a test drive. A full display of EVs will be available along with exhibits describing how EVs and charging stations work as well as experts to answer questions about at- home and public charging technologies. EV owners are also encouraged to come out for an EV Meet Up where they can share their perspectives with potential future EV owners about their vehicles, range anxiety, and the benefits of EVs.
“Electric vehicles are making major news with new federal incentives for both buyers and EV makers. And we want to make sure San Antonio drivers are aware of all the amazing benefits that come with switching to an EV, from climate change to the quality of life in our community,” said Drew Higgins, Senior Director of Products & Services with CPS Energy. “We even offer managed charging programs that can make it even more beneficial for drivers to go electric.”
Last year, over 500 people attended the inaugural SA Drive Electric event and the goal is to double that number this year. Attendees will be able to sign up online at sadriveelectric.com to test drive a vehicle prior to the event. Forms and sign-up sheets also will be available at the event.
“As the EV infrastructure continues to grow, so too do the opportunities for anyone to become an EV driver. We are really excited to have an opportunity to meet with San Antonio residents, educate them on the wonderful world of EVs, and help reduce their ‘range anxiety’,” explained Zpryme CEO Jason Rodriguez.
