With the increase in electric car models to meet more drivers’ needs, there is now an electric vehicle (EV) for every lifestyle.  This is your chance to get behind the wheel and test them out.  Bring your family and friends for this one-day-only opportunity to see why the San Diego region has one of the highest adoption rates of EVs.

Do you already own an EV?  Put it on display at the event along with 100 other EV owners, and network with your local community as part of Electric Vehicle Day celebration.  Space is limited and provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
