National Plug-In Day: Roundup Of Electric-Car Activities

For National Plug-In Day this year, the third time was definitely the charm.

In its third year, the weekend celebration of automotive electrification included events in more than 100 cities–up from 65 last year–on both September 28 and 29.

It also became an international event, with cities in Canada, Mexico, and the Netherlands participating as well as those in the United States.

Tens of thousands of attendees collectively test-drove every new electric vehicle on the market, from the Tesla Model S to the Brammo electric motorcycle, and learned more about this alternative form of propulsion.

Electric-car owners (there are now more than 100,000 in the U.S.) also got the message across with “Oil-Free Miles” placards displayed on windshields, showing how many miles their cars had been driven without an oil change.

In many cases, that meant every mile the car had covered.

Here’s a brief roundup of just a few of the many events that happened over the weekend.
