November 2, 2021

On October 31, 2021 Charge Across America set out on a historic 10-day race and docuseries following five electric vehicle race teams, racing from Brooklyn to LA with the goal of demystifying and proving that EV range anxiety can be overcome. 

ACM was proud to host the teams on their first stop Monday, November 1, with a grand line up of energy-focused speakers featuring comments from ACM President & CEO, Reuben Sarkar, followed by a pre-recorded press announcement regarding newly selected projects related to charging infrastructure from the DOE Vehicle Technologies Office from US Secretary of Energy, Jennifer Granholm, and a live-virtual Q&A session with Deputy Assistant Secretary for Sustainable Transportation at the Department of Energy, Michael Berube.

The media event wrapped up with comments from the State of Michigan on state-wide efforts to support electrification and mobility topics featuring Lt. Governor, Garlin Gilchrist II, Director of Michigan Department of Transportation, Paul Ajegba and an exciting closure with the State of Michigan’s Chief Mobility Officer, Trevor Pawl.

The race will end in Los Angeles with stops throughout the country, charging along the way. The docuseries is set to air in December.
