Come join us at the 11th Annual AltCar Expo.  Learn about the plug-in experience from plug-in owners.  Look for the National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) booth and owners’ personal electric cars.

If you are a plug-in owner and would like to exhibit your car &/or share your plug-in experiences with others, please contact the coordinators for this event.

Manufacturer and dealer test drives of practically every plug-in made are available on-site at the AltCar Expo Ride & Drive.

The 11th Annual Alternative Energy and Transportation Exhibition, AltCar Expo, is at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on Friday 09/16 & Saturday 09/17 from 10am to 5pm.  In addition to the Ride & Drive, the Expo offers educational sessions and exhibits related to alternative transportation and energy.  Please see for more information.                 FREE              AltCar Expo is a FREE event!





This NDEW event has an exhibit space within the AltCar Expo.  We are looking for volunteers to exhibit their EV or plug-in hybrid and talk to the general public that are attending the AltCar Expo about what it is like to have an EV.

Shifts are in one hour blocks from 10am to 5pm, Friday and Saturday.  You can schedule yourself for one or more blocks (hours).  Have a friend with an EV?  Tell them about it, too!
