USA: St. Armands To Host Inaugural Electric Vehicle Expo

Sunday will be an electrifying day in Sarasota as the city’s first-ever Electric Vehicle expo kicks off.

The festivities start at 10 a.m. at Selby Five Points Park where a ceremony will be held along with a proclamation for National Plug in Day, which heightens awareness of the benefits of driving electric cars. Then a parade of electric cars will lead to St. Armands Circle for the expo itself called Electrify The Circle.

“The City of Sarasota embraced renewable energy and electric vehicles years ago and we’re proud to be part of this national event,” Mayor Suzanne Atwell said. “Sustainability and renewable energy are part of our everyday business plan whether it’s having two EVs in the city fleet or adding electric charging stations around the city for public use. Electric vehicles are gaining in popularity, and I’m looking forward to seeing a long line parading over the Ringling Bridge to St. Armands.”

The event is hosted by the City of Sarasota, Sarasota County Government, Sierra Club, Plug in America and the Electric Vehicle Association. City officials tout that this wil be the largest electric car event ever held on the Suncoast.
