National Drive Electric Week Sneak Peek: Huntington Beach
AUG 10 2014 BY DSCHURIG
National Drive Electric Week is September 15-21 this year. There will be approximately 200 events across the country celebrating the widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. They are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
If you are going to be in Southern California at that time, the event in Huntington Beach is the place to be. Due to the overwhelming response by manufacturers of exciting plug in products, it is now titled Plug In To Excitement!
Boasting 250,000 sq. ft. of event space, larger than 4 football fields, and already more than 40 corporate and company exhibitors, it is poised to be one of the largest Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) events in the country, if not the world. Attendance is conservatively forecast at 20,000, it could easily be double that. There will be more than 20 automobiles to drive, there are even global debuts on tap!
