San Francisco Opens Cornucopia of Electric Vehicles

SAN FRANCISCO, California, September 15, 2012 (ENS) – Called EV Week, San Francisco’s new EV public education campaign really lasts just two days – September 17 and 18 – but this festival of electric vehicles is still a big deal.

Opening Monday at Justin Herman Plaza, and will feature all electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles from major car manufacturers and car sharing companies, EV charging solutions, including clean energy EV charging, and the opportunity to ride and drive all kinds of electric vehicles.

EV Week is an initiative of Charge Across Town™, an electric vehicle education campaign started on Earth Day 2012 with the goal of making San Francisco the most advanced U.S. city in EV adoption and infrastructure.

“Charge Across Town is catalyzing the effort with consumers, nonprofits and the business community to get San Francisco EV-Ready,” said San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee.

“EVs have the power to reduce dependency on oil, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save people money, and revitalize the economy here in San Francisco and across the country,” said Mayor Lee.

At EV Week, Toyota will be showing the RAV4 EV, which combines a Tesla designed and produced battery and electric powertrain with Toyota’s most popular SUV model. Toyota also will be showing the Prius Plug-In. People will be able to test drive both vehicles.

Nissan will have many electric Leaf’s on display and in the ride and drives.

The Ford Focus Electric will be there as will the Coda Automotive with the California-made electric Coda.
