Visit K1 Speed during our National Drive Electric Week 2019 event! Being the pioneer of all-electric indoor go kart racing in the US, we knew we had to be a part of this nationwide celebration. So if you own or drive a fully electric vehicle (or know someone who does), you’re not going to want to miss this special week-long offer.

Our 2019 National Drive Electric Week Event

From the start of Monday, September 16 until the end of Sunday, September 22, if you drive an all-electric vehicle (EV) to K1 Speed, you can enjoy a single Arrive & Drive race for just $15*! That’s over 30% off!


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. 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.


To redeem this offer, all you have to do is show us your vehicle registration or proof of insurance that proves you drive one of qualifying vehicles.

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!

What is National Drive Electric Week, Anyways?

National Drive Electric Week is a celebration of electric vehicles across the nation. The goal is to increase the awareness of plug-in vehicles, both in its widespread availability and its many benefits. Electric vehicles are not only fun to drive (instant torque!) but are less expensive (less maintenance and no gas!), environmentally conscious, and decreases the nation’s dependence on foreign oil.


National Drive Electric Week also connects current owners of electric vehicles with prospective buyers. You’ll find plenty of test drives and social functions around this week, so if you’ve considered driving the car of the future, this is a great opportunity!

    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

    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.
