USA: Electric Vehicle Charging Stations to be Unveiled at Classic Car Show

The city will break in their new electric vehicle charging stations with style at the 25th Annual May Madness Classic Car event on May 12.

The city will break in their new electric vehicle charging stations with style at the 25th Annual May Madness Classic Car event on May 12.

Mayor Gary Phillips will cut the ribbon for the stations on Saturday, May 12 at 3:15 p.m. in the A Street public garage. The charging stations join two others that the city previously installed at the C Street garage, working in conjunction with the Transportation Authority of Marin, Marin Clean Energy and Sustainable San Rafael.

A high-end Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid sports car (like the one Justin Bieber drives) and an affordably-priced Mitsubishi “i” all-electric hatchback will be the first cars to charge up at the new stations, bracketing the range of electric vehicles that are quickly penetrating the U.S. automotive market.

Electric cars from half a dozen manufacturers will be on display from noon to 6 p.m. on B Street, anchoring the “Eco Car” section of the annual Classic Car event, which also features live music, food and beverages, and a 5 p.m. hot rod parade.

The two Coulomb Technologies “ChargePoint” stations enable visitors to downtown San Rafael to recharge their electric cars while they shop, dine or otherwise enjoy the city. Initially there will be no charge for the electricity beyond the regular fee for parking in the garage.
