Equity Programs 

Charge Across Town’s mission is to increase equitable access to clean personal transportation, to help reduce air pollution and meet federal, state and municipal climate goals for greenhouse gas reductions. Our Equity Programs across California support electric vehicle adoption through Ride and Drive events, educational videos and testimonials.

Educating Traditional Gas Car Drivers

Through Ride and Drive programs, we educate and demonstrate the benefits of electric vehicles.

Hands-On Experience

Drivers have the opportunity to test out the car, ask questions one-on-one, and get all the information they need at once, seeing their options based on their situation.

Support and Funding

Electrify America has provided substantial funding and support to make these programs possible and accessible.
