The Electric Auto Association is North America’s leading volunteer organization that accelerates the adoption of electric vehicles by supporting its 80 chapters and thousands of members as they talk neighbor-to-neighbor about the benefits of driving electric. 

This nonprofit is a 501 (c) 3 organization built by volunteers who are powered by passion. 

Our Mission

The Electric Auto Association accelerates the widespread adoption of electric vehicles through education, infrastructure support and demonstration.

Our Chapters

Our chapters are the heartbeat of the Electric Auto Association. They play a vital role in demonstrating that there is an electric vehicle for every lifestyle by annually hosting hundreds of grassroots educational events and test drives.  All members no matter their knowledge level are encouraged to attend or volunteer at our events. 

Our History

Formed in 1967 as a way to share the benefits of transitioning gasoline vehicles to electric, the Electric Auto Association saw its membership as a result of two gas shortages in 1970 and 1973 that gripped the U.S. causing drivers to face around-the-block lines at their local gas stations. 

A group of Silicon Valley, CA engineers banded together to respond to this shortage with an educational effort as part of the Electric Auto Association that offered to assist anyone interested in converting their gasoline cars to electric and reduce dependence on foreign oil. 

It was there the nonprofit’s first chapter was created and since then has evolved into an effort that has spurred electric vehicle market growth across an entire continent. 


The Electric Auto Association now has thousands of members and continues to see strong growth due to the acceleration of the electric vehicle industry and the number and variety of cars available. Cities across the globe are now asking to form chapters in their regions.
