EV Revolution

Electric vehicles are revolutionizing the automotive industry ...and they aren't just changing the cars that we drive. EVs are innovating how we drive, reinventing the roads we navigate and expanding our expectations on how to get from point A to point B. They are also driving economic growth, sparking opportunities for new suppliers and manufacturers specializing in batteries, charging stations and the latest electrification technologies. ...and if that wasn't enough of an impact, EVs are also paving new pathways for careers in automotive, as the demand for a skilled workforce continues to skyrocket and unique educational opportunities increase.

Are you EV ready? Buckle up, press start and get plugged in for a grand tour of all things EV at our second Drive Electric Alabama EV Summit!
