We offer EV test drives at workplaces, universities, and in community-wide events.
Engaging the Community
Our community leaders offer direction on creating Recharge Massachusetts events that provide attendees with innovative and entertaining ways to engage with electric vehicles.
Opening Educational and Workforce Pipeline Opportunities
Short term internships expose community members to opportunities in the clean vehicle economy.
Recharge Massachusetts activities drive local philanthropy to community needs while building awareness of clean vehicles.
Ongoing technical assistance helps community members and leaders with vehicle charging resources and staying current with the changing transportation landscape.
Annual Community Celebration
Community members gather each year to mark progress and remain current on the rapidly changing electric vehicle landscaping across Massachusetts.
Electric Vehicle Definition and Terms
Electric Vehicles (EVs) includes Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) powered solely by an electric battery and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) powered by a combination of an electric motor and a gasoline engine.
The term Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) is a subset of EVs and includes both PHEVs and BEVs. These terms may apply to cars, vans, all size trucks, buses, and off-road equipment like commercial lawn care products or material handling equipment.
MassEVolves Recognition Program for EV Leaders
MassEVolves began in 2018 and is a voluntary state program recognizing an organization’s work in supporting the use of zero emission vehicles for their operations, employees, and communities. MassEVolves participants create a ZEV action team and plan that includes implementing one or more ongoing programs to help more people gain access to clean transportation.
