What we're about

MD Volt Inc., a Maryland based non-profit, is the Mid-Atlantic's largest meetup group supporting the growing number of owners and enthusiasts of electric transport (electric vehicles, electric motorcycles, electric scooters, etc.). It also celebrates the expanding charging station infrastructure in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC and beyond. Through meetups and events we aim to educate the general public and each other about our experiences and the many benefits of driving electric.

Interested in hosting an EVs & Espresso* or general meetup in 2019? Contact mark@mdvolt.org . While we prefer locations with charging stations nearby, it's not required.

*EVs & Espresso is like Cars & Coffee for electric vehicle owners, enthusiasts and others.

Autobahn Indoor Electric Speedway Meetup (a Sunday Event)

Autobahn Indoor Speedway & Events - Baltimore, MD/BWI

This is our first Sunday meetup to include those of you who work on Saturdays. At 60,000 sq. ft., this state-of-the-art indoor karting facility in Columbia, Maryland offers speed lovers the thrill of racing F1-inspired karts at speeds of up to 50 mph! Autobahn Indoor Speedway Baltimore (BWI) features two indoor Grand Prix-style tracks and high-speed electric Italian pro-karts for adult and junior racers. Please review the weekend pricing located on the following page: https://autobahnspeed.com/locations/baltimore-bwi-md-indoor-go-karts/ - Please review the website for age restrictions and what you should wear: https://autobahnspeed.com/karting-101/karting-101indoor-karting-faqs/ We'll do some type of contest (best time, etc.) and the winner will get 2 tickets to the Washington Auto Show in April. An annual $7.95 Speedway License is required to race; it is valid at all locations and includes: a free race the week of your birthday ($20 value, MUST opt in to receive emails), a free head sock ($4 value), use of helmets, online scoring, mobile app & access to special offers. Races are 14 laps for Adults and 12 laps for Juniors. The race ends when the winner completes their final lap. All pricing is per racer. A single race (14 laps) is $19.99, so if you want to race, minimally, with the license, it will cost about $30. Race purchases never expire, so the more you buy, the more of a discount you can get. There is a viewing area for those who choose not to race. If there is interest, we can have a late lunch at a restaurant close by after the meetup.

***LUNCH PROVIDED*** CSM is hosting a LEGO Championship robotics event on April 6th and they've asked us again if we could showcase some electric vehicles.

Drinks and lunch will be sponsored by CSM (PE building, room 120B). Please join us and give back to the Community by sharing your experiences with your EV(s)!

EatWell Natural Farm Meetup/Tour

EatWell Natural Farm

EatWell Natural Farm is a 13 acre farm in La Plata, MD owned and operated by EatWell DC. Most of their produce goes to the six EatWell DC restaurants in Washington DC: Grillfish, Logan Tavern, Commissary, The Pig, The Bird, and The Charles. They grow a wide variety of seasonal vegetables and fruits without using chemical fertilizers or pesticides. They try to work with nature to improve the soil using crop rotation, cover crops, compost and mulch. Organic matter from the restaurants is brought back to the farm and composted to complete the cycle. After the tour, we will caravan over to The Charles (a new EatWell DC restaurant) for lunch, in the Town of La Plata (417 Charles St, La Plata, MD 20646).
