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 Ithaca • Sep 26, 2020


    National Drive Electric Week is a week long event that happens in cities all across the United States. NDEW was started many years ago with the goal of raising awareness of electric vehicles. It is a showcase where current electric vehicle owners show off their cars and, at some events, dealers provide test drives to show the public the many benefits of going all electric. The event is open to EV owners, their guests, and the public.

    Where:
    It will be different this year. This year we will be meeting at Stewart Park at 11am. We will hang out there for about an hour then form a parade line and drive to Summerhill Brewery together. Once there we can hang out as long as we want. There will be no organized test drives or sponsors this year. 

    Address for Summerhill Brewery, 14408 NY-90, Summer Hill, NY 13092
