Gallery: Celebrate Your EV This Sunday at the First Ever National Plug-...


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, and it’s being organized by Plug In America, the Sierra Club, and the Electric Auto Association. 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.

Currently, events are planned for New York, Washington D.C., Detroit, Phoenix, Denver, Knoxville, Seattle, Atlanta, Austin, Portland, Indianapolis, Concord (NH), San Francisco, San Diego, Tucson, Kissimmee (FL), Addison (TX), Honolulu, Orange County (CA), Davis (CA), Santa Cruz and Santa Monica. Movie director Chris Paine, whose film Revenge of the Electric Car will open in theaters across the country October 21st, will speak in Santa Monica before the electric vehicle parade. For more information on how you can participate in your local event, visit Plug-in America’s website for details.

    Is the place to go for more details on the New York City event. We’ll have every electric vehicle you can buy there, and even some you can’t – like the brand new BMW ActiveE that has yet to be released!
