Event Report

Drive Electric Florida Day
Accelerates Electric Vehicles at Capitol

Drive Electric Florida hosted Senator Jeff Brandes, Florida Senate Transportation Chair, and other members of the Florida Legislature on Drive Electric Florida Day at the Florida State Capitol.

Senator Brandes test drove a Tesla Model S around the Capitol complex, and the Capitol courtyard featured 25 plug-in electric vehicles including the Cadillac ELR, Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt, Porsche Cayenne Hybrid and two electric city buses, including a City of Tallahassee STAR Metro bus.

"It's exciting to have this conversation and for members to experience this, because I think the future of vehicles in Florida absolutely includes electric vehicles," said Senator Jeff Brandes (R-St. Petersburg). "We're encouraged to see this industry continue to grow and thrive here in Florida."
