Tesla Owners NC Triangle and Tesla Owners Western North Carolina have co-hosted the Blue Ridge Parkway Tesla Drive since 2018, and this year we have decided to follow in Tesla's footsteps and open it up to all EVs on Saturday, September 30, as well as combine it with the annual National Drive Electric Week show on Sunday, October 1, which is hosted by Blue Ridge EV Club and make it a weekend long event!

You can register to take part in either or both of the events. Can't wait to see everyone this fall!
