The Electric Vehicle Association of Greater Washington, DC. is an organization of electric vehicle owners, educators and enthusiasts dedicated to promoting the use of electric vehicles (EVs) as an environmental and energy benefit to society. EVA/DC was formed in 1980 as a chapter of the nationwide Electric Auto Association (EAA), and holds regular monthly meetings, public displays, car shows and tech sessions to exchange information.

Many EVA/DC members don’t own an EV, but attend meetings to learn more
about the technology. Those who have EVs include members who converted
vehicles themselves, purchased limited run OEM EVs (such as the Ford
Ranger, Miles NMG, Toyota RAV-4 EV), recently purchased a new OEM EV
such as a Tesla, Nissan Leaf or Chevy Volt.
Some members of EVA/DC are supporting the EV industry in one form or another with their infrastructure and consulting business, conversions or selling and repairing light electric vehicles such as electric bicycles and scooters.
With the increasing demand to showcase the technology, members are frequently called upon to display their cars at area schools, environmental fairs, automobile shows, parades and other public events. And it’s not unusual for a local EV driver to be stopped in public by curious onlookers for a peek under the hood – often accompanied by an impromptu question and answer session.
