Saturday In San Diego: Test Out An EV At Electric Vehicle Day

At the turn of the 21st century, hybrids were brand new, and car customers were curious but wary.

More than a dozen years later, models like the Toyota Prius and Honda Insight have become old hat. Electric vehicles are what’s turning heads these days.

The fully electric Nissan Leaf and the extended-range Chevrolet Volt were the first electric cars to achieve widespread distribution in the U.S., with competing models from other automakers following in short order. Though the EV-averse tried to dismiss such rides as novelties, sales have been steadily climbing: as of August 31, Nissan had sold 14,123 units of the Leaf, and Chevrolet had sold around 15,000 Volts. Combined with other models, that means that just shy of 60,000 plug-in vehicles have been purchased in 2013.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that electric cars aren’t going anywhere. And so, the public has become increasingly intrigued and interested in them.
