The third annual National Plug In Day, which celebrates the benefits of electric vehicles, will take place in over 75 U.S. cities during the weekend of September 28 and 29, 2013.
For this event, the term “electric vehicle” encompass a wide range of types: cars, trucks, motorcycles, scooters, and more. Each event will be directed by local EV fanatics and will include parades, test drives, recharging stations, info booths, and award ceremonies, as well as sponsors the Nissan LEAF and Schneider EVlink. The first event held in 2011 took place in just 29 cities, so it’s encouraging to see how fast it has grown in just three years.
“Thanks to the continued drop in prices, plug-in vehicles are now within the reach of millions of Americans. Many are now driving ‘for free’ because their car payments are equal to or even less than they paid for gasoline,” said Plug In America president Richard Kelly. “Our aim is to raise awareness of this affordability and the many other benefits of EVs.”
