This Sunday, drivers in over 20 cities nationwide will celebrate the benefits of electric vehicles by staging the largest electric vehicle parade ever and hosting “tailpipe-free” tailgate parties and lectures. It’s called National Plug-in Day [1], and it’s being organized by Plug In America [2], the Sierra Club [3], and the Electric Auto Association [4]. New plug-in vehicles by Tesla, GM, Nissan, SMART, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Coda, Ford, and others will be on-hand for ride-and-drives so that the public can test electric vehicles that have come to market since Plug In America’s smaller 2008 and 2009 EV rallies, pictured here.
