A new seven-state partnership in the Midwest led by the American Lung Association is helping to get people behind the wheel of plug-in electric and hybrid vehicles during National Drive Electric Week, from Sept. 9 to 17.

The program, called Midwest Evolve, emphasizes the clean-air benefits and cost-savings of plug-in electric cars. The vehicles are being showcased in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota.

Nearly three dozen National Drive Electric Week events are being held in states that are a part of Midwest Evolve, a three-year partnership between the American Lung Association and eight Clean Cities coalitions throughout the Midwest.

As a part of the three-year project, the Lung Association and the eight Clean Cities coalitions are hosting more than 200 large and small Midwest Evolve events, including ride and drives, workplace-charging seminars, and other events throughout the Midwest.

Overall, more than 200 National Drive Electric Week events are taking place this year throughout the U.S.
