Test Drives

Driving a Tesla, by all measures the king of electric vehicles, is so unique and exciting that it's said that to drive one is to (at least want to) buy one! The problem is that NY State legislation limits Tesla to only five stores within the state, which are all located near New York City, so the average Upstate NY resident simply doesn't have the chance to drive one. That's where TOCNYS comes in.

TOCNYS periodically partners with Tesla staff to put on free educational demo drive events for the public in the various regions of NY State. These mobile demo drive events offer a rare opportunity for Upstate residents to test drive a Tesla vehicle without first having to travel several hours out of their area.

Below are listed our upcoming and past test drive events.

If you've already signed up to test drive a Tesla, we encourage you to first check out our Guide to Properly Test Driving a Tesla!

    National Drive Electric Week Delmar • Sep 27, 2020


    Take part in our 8th annual National Drive Electric Week event!

    This is an opportunity for EV enthusiasts and auto dealers to showcase pure electric vehicles to the public in a relaxed open venue free of manufacturer, technical, or political bias. The goal is to get people excited about modern EVs while giving them the opportunity to get up close and personal with them, as well as making EV test drives available from local dealers. It’s also a chance to help inform the public about electric vehicles. Like any new technology, there are still some prevalent misconceptions and lots of questions that the public has. With a range of EVs on the road, there is an electric car for every lifestyle.

    Local dealers will be bringing new EVs for test drives. We welcome participation from local car dealerships, EV owners, renewable energy companies, utility companies, and anyone else that is part of the electric vehicle eco-system. 

    Fun for the whole family

     Free Admission

    Take part in our EV group photo. There will be a farmers market next door with lots of delicious food. 

     There will be Solar power vendor displays to show the advantages of making your own clean energy and savings.

    Thanks to the Delmar farmers market for hosting the 2019 Capital District National Drive Electric Week event.

    The Delmar Farmers Market mission aligns well with the goals of this event, their mission is to provide a marketplace that introduces local farmers and other food producers and craftspeople to the community. We will promote sustainable farming, healthy foods, environmental awareness, and support local and fair trade businesses.
