Event Report

Electric vehicles displayed in Birmingham, Mobile and Fort Payne

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (April 22, 2023) – Local chapters of Drive Electric Alabama showcased electric 
vehicles (EVs) in Birmingham, Mobile and Fort Payne on Saturday, the latest EVents designed to help 
educate Alabamians, and answer their questions, about EVs.

As EVs become more prevalent on Alabama highways, it’s inevitable that those who have only driven 
gasoline-powered cars have questions about range, cost savings on fuel and maintenance, and other 
topics unique to EVs.

At each of Saturday’s three EV showcases, electric vehicle owners talked one-on-one with visitors 
and shared their personal experiences.

“Electric vehicles are still new to so many people, and it’s always rewarding to help people 
separate fact from fiction,” said Dale Holden, a leader of the Bay Area Drive Electric Alabama 
chapter for EV owners and enthusiasts. “EV owners save money and often find they sacrifice nothing 
when it comes to convenience, safety or performance.”

The EVents in Alabama were part of the national Drive Electric Earth Day initiative, which is 
designed to share information about all topics related to driving electric.

Local chapters of Drive Electric Alabama also sponsored inaugural Drive Electric Earth Day
showcases in Prattville and Enterprise earlier this month.

Event Description


Are you looking for accurate and up-to-date information about electric vehicles? Market research shows EV owners are considered the most reliable and trusted source of information about range, affordability, technology and other issues unique to EVs.

EV owners will be on hand to answer questions about their vehicles’ comfort, range, price and more at Saturday’s Drive Electric Alabama Earth Day Electric Vehicle Showcase at The Market at Pepper Place in Birmingham. Media members are also invited to attend and talk to EV owners.

“Many people still have questions about EVs, and the people who own and drive them have the answers,” said Mark Bentley, Executive Director of the Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition, one of the event’s organizers. “This is an easy way to learn more about EVs, which give off zero emissions, are economical to drive and contribute to the creation of high-paying jobs here in Alabama.”
