K1 Speed is your place to race during Drive Electric Week! Being the pioneer of all-electric, emission-free indoor go kart racing in the United States, we knew we had to be a part of this worldwide celebration. So if you own or drive an all-electric vehicle (EV), or know someone who does, you’re not going to want to miss this special Drive Electric Week deal exclusively for you!

Our 2021 Drive Electric Week Deal!

From the opening until closing from Saturday, September 25 to Sunday, October 3, 2021 if you drive an all-electric vehicle (EV) to K1 Speed, you can enjoy a single Arrive & Drive race for just $15*! That’s 40% off at most of our locations!


If you have never tried our electric go karts, you’re in for a treat. Like your electric vehicle, our karts have instant torque (power). This means you can speed through the tight, twisty turns of our track faster than you would a gas-powered kart. Plus, there’s no noxious exhaust fumes and no lawnmower-sounding exhaust note. Plus, people love the sound of our karts – they sound just like futuristic Formula E race cars!


Here’s some more reasons why electric go karts are better than gas-powered go karts.


How To Redeem This Offer:


To redeem this deal, all you have to do is show us your vehicle registration or proof of insurance that proves you you drive one of the qualified vehicles (see approved list below).

Carpool to the Event and Pass on the Savings!

One of the things we love about National Drive Electric Week is the environmental awareness. And since carpooling also helps our environment, we’re encouraging you to bring your friends in your EV! So not only the owner/driver of the vehicle can enjoy a $15 race, but up to three of your passengers can receive this same deal when they visit with you!

    If I have a Chevy Bolt, and a Fiat 500e, do I get an extra discount? Can I take my Fiat 500e on the track, I think it will fit? 🙂

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Ivan. Sadly, you don’t get an extra discount..but you do get our respect! Regarding the Fiat on the track, it wasn’t electric, but we’ve been there, done that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D96k8DuMZkY.

  • Rennie Allen

    My car is a 100% electric vehicle, it isn’t on the list, it is a Toyota Mirai.

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Rennie! While the Mirai is close to being 100% electric, it is hydrogen powered as well, making it a hybrid. We need all electric, I’m afraid!

  • Justin Medina

    I don’t own one but you should include the Zero Electric Motorcycles, as well as any other brand name electric motorcycle like harley’s new Livewire

    • Staff Writer

      Justin, you’re absolutely right. We’ll add them to the list – thanks!

  • Robert Grusin

    Why no Teslas?

    • Staff Writer

      Robert, look between the Smart ForTwo and Toyota Rav4.

  • James Worden

    What an awesome event! We have always really liked K1 and this Drive Electric week program is a reason to like it even more!
    P.S.: Please add three pure EVs to the list that are not currently on the list:
    Solectria Force (4-seat sedan)
    Solectria Sunrise (4-seat sedan)
    Solectria E-10 pickup truck (2-seat)
    Thanks, James Worden

    • Staff Writer

      Oh, man.. we’re totally adding Solectria to the list. Do you actually have one, James??
      EDIT: Aaaaand….I just discovered you co-founded the company. AMAZING!

  • Frank Zwirba

    I have an All electric Scooter.. A regular 2 wheeled 14 inch tires Electric Scooter. Its a mini Motorcycle. I can throw it in the back of my pick up. Unfortunately your 3+ hours away from y’all. Probably 6 hours or more if i rode that there. lol. I’ll admit. This is my 1st time hearing of electric Go karts. I love that take off Torque. When i was a kid growing up in Brooklyn N.Y. In Coney Island we had an indoor Gas Karts we’d go to all the time. You just educated & Shocked me on your info about indoor gas karts. I’m starting to wonder if thats why i turned out the way i am? lol. Probably had a few brain cells lost due to the Gas/Exhaust fumes. I’ll be looking forward to taking a Day Trip soon to come down and meet you all. Of course also to Ride your really cool Karts. I’m glad i came across your ad on the website i was on. I’ve really enjoyed reading all the info and reviews.

  • Craig J Russell

    I have a Toyota Prius and i don’t see it on your list? Does that qualify? Also have a Stacyc and eMtb, do they qualify?

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Craig! Sorry, since the Prius is a hybrid, it’s not all-electric and therefore doesn’t qualify. In regards to your Stacyc and eMtb, we’re looking for more electric cars/trucks/motorcycles rather than e-bicycles.Thanks for checking with us, though!

  • Astrid

    Hi K1 team, I want to bike to the location with my friends. It’s even greener than driving electric. Would that count?

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Astrid! We agree, that’s great for our planet! However, we are looking for all-electric vehicles for this particular promo. You can still bike over to our place, though! 😉

  • Jaime Gutierrez

    I need a quote for 10 children

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Jaime! Please submit a booking inquiry and a group events representative will be in touch with you: booking inquiry form. Thanks for your interest!

  • Gerardo Hurtado

    Prius prime is missing from the list! It has a 25mile autonomy on full ev mode

    • Staff Writer

      Hello Gerardo! While the Prius does have an EV mode, it’s still a hybrid vehicle and not a true EV. Sorry about that!

  • SilentP

    Re: the Mirai,

    It is electric, it just stores the electric charge via a fuel cell primarily rather than a battery. There is no combustion going on. It should count since you didn’t specify battery electric vehicle.

    • Staff Writer

      Hey SilentP! Technically, the Mirai is classified as a FCV. We’re going for any vehicle that’s classified as an EV. Sorry for the inconvenience!

  • Brian D

    Ford Fusion Energi is all electric, but like the BMW I3 has a range extending gas motor.
    95% of my driving around town is on electric only.

    • Staff Writer

      Hey Brian! Because the Energi includes the gas-powered motor as standard it’s considered a hybrid. The BMW i3 is on the list since the motor is an optional add-on – as a standard vehicle, it’s a pure EV. Hope this clears up the confusion.

  • Patrick Finnegan

    Chevy made a Spark EV from 2014-2016 in Cali and Oregon to meet compliance with zero emission standard in those states, and I still see them around up here in Washington!

    • Staff Writer

      Thanks, Patrick! We’ll add that to the list.
