Event information


These events are great for anyone interested in electric vehicles. All of them feature vehicles on display, and many feature ride-alongs in select vehicles. The owners of the cars will be there to answer any questions people may have. The events also feature different informational booths and seminars to educate the public on the growing field of EV’s. I personally had the opportunity to attend the Satellite Beach event last year, and it was amazing!
