Tesla Raffle Undersold! Odds Fantastic For New Car

A leading nonprofit group reported this week that its summer electric vehicle raffle is way undersold. The drawing for a new Tesla or Rivian is barely four weeks away and only 2,100 out of 5,500 tickets have been sold.

This creates an unusually attractive opportunity for anyone hoping to win a state-of-the-art EV with free lifetime charging. Your chances of winning are currently about 1-in-2000 while supporting one of the best climate advocacy groups in the nation. 


This raffle offers an opportunity to liberate yourself from gas prices—forever—with the option to win a custom-built Rivian R1S SUV or R1T pickup truck, plus $10,000 in free charging, enough for the lifetime of any EV. Or build a Tesla Model X Plaid, plus get the free lifetime charging. Or, make range anxiety a thing of the past with the ultra-luxurious Lucid Air Grand Touring, valued at $138,000, which can take you from Chicago to Nashville on a single charge. And perhaps the best part? All your state AND federal taxes are covered.


It’s all part of a unique raffle to fight climate change. Your $200 ticket to win a new Tesla or Rivian helps support a good cause and earns you excellent odds to win one of the best electric vehicles on the market. Again, tickets are currently undersold by a longshot. No matter how many are sold, they’ll be drawing the winning ticket in one month, on Thursday, August 24th. 

With global temperatures breaking worldwide records again and again, this raffle couldn’t be more timely. The raffle helps fund the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) Action Fund in their work fighting global warming. Every ticket helps them advocate for legislation in Washington to offer serious tax credits for EV purchases, build charging stations nationwide, and move the nation’s grid to be powered by clean, renewable energy. Your ticket powers the work at CCAN Action Fund. You win. We win. The planet wins. Enter the EV Raffle today and support a good cause.

Anyone can win! Last year’s winner was Alex Kubacki of North Carolina. He won the highly popular Rivian R1T electric pickup truck. He told CCAN Action Fund that the Rivian’s instant power and low center of gravity makes driving his truck feel “more like a sports car than it has any right to feel like.” He said that maintenance has been a breeze. And now, he’s planning to take the truck camping with his dog. 

CCAN Action Fund is offering the R1T truck again this year, alongside the new R1S SUV. Rivian vehicles are made for adventure. The Rivian R1S SUV and R1T truck offer all-wheel-drive and a quad motor, have 800 horsepower, an estimated range of 314-miles, and great towing capacity. Both vehicles are a dream for any outdoor enthusiast, tradesperson, or urban hipster with stuff to carry.

Alongside the Rivian options, CCAN Action Fund is offering a Tesla Model X Plaid. Imagine a Tesla Model X with maximum features for speed, luxury, long-range battery, and the latest EV technology inside and out.

Finally, the winner can also choose the new Lucid Air Grand Touring. This groundbreaking vehicle takes just 12 minutes to charge 200 miles, and drives fast and smooth. It promises to change the EV experience forever. After CCAN Action Fund pays all your state and federal taxes for your EV, the total prize package totals over $150,000! 

This is the fifth year in a row that CCAN Action Fund has raffled an electric vehicle. The raffle runs all summer long, with the drawing on August 24th. They’re selling just 5,500 tickets – and right now, more than 3,400 are still unsold. So your chances of winning a new Tesla or Rivian or Lucid are incredibly good with one ticket. Even better if you buy multiple tickets.


Cars, trucks and other forms of transportation account for nearly 30 percent of America’s climate pollution. CCAN Action Fund’s goal, as a climate advocacy group, is to get you and everyone else behind the wheel of an electric vehicle. Whether you’re going on an outdoor adventure or cruising city streets, when you sit behind the wheel of an electric vehicle, you’re helping preserve the natural world for generations to come (and avoiding gas prices forever!). 

It’s never been clearer — the time to start driving an electric vehicle is NOW. CCAN Action Fund is uniquely positioned to help lead our nation toward a low-carbon economy, but they can’t do it without you. Make this your year to join the community of EV drivers and leave a lasting impact on climate change. Purchase a ticket today and enjoy the payoff for years (and generations) to come!

I don’t like paywalls. You don’t like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don’t like paywalls, and so we’ve decided to ditch ours.

Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It’s a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So …
