WAWA, Pa.—This week, Wawa announced an official “#Wawa Run in an EV” sweepstakes which exclusively invites Virginia residents to enter to win a three-year Tesla Model 3 lease. To kick off the sweepstakes, Wawa hosted an event during National Drive Electric week at its Vienna, Va., location to celebrate the 500,000th chainwide electric vehicle (EV) customer at a Wawa.

The event featured the Tesla Model 3 vehicle with a giant red bow and the ceremonial “plugging in,” marking the half million mark in EV customers since inception and launching the sweepstakes for the Tesla Model 3 Lease.

“Wawa proudly hosts 33 electric charging stations to date—with a goal of reaching 40 by year end, across our entire operating area, with the purpose of providing “boundless convenience,” for friends and neighbors seeking access to food, beverages and charging stations at one destination,” said Brian Schaller, chief real estate and fuel officer for Wawa, in a press release.

“We selected our Vienna store as a backdrop to announce this sweepstakes as it’s the first store in company history to open with EV chargers only, no fuel pumps, which demonstrates our commitment to innovation, sustainability and our continued desire to meet the needs of our customers,” Schaller said.

Wawa began hosting electric charging stations at its first store in 2017. Wawa hosts Tesla Superchargers, and EVgo and Electrify America CCS and CHAdeMO chargers. To date, Wawa hosts 33 Electric Charging Stations, including 31 Supercharging sites and two CCS and CHAdeMO stations.
