USA: Events plug electric cars; free test drives offered

You see them everywhere these days – cars that glide silently by and never stop to fill up for gas. Electric cars – one of those things that a friend of a friend owns.

But regional transportation officials are hoping to spark a surge in the popularity of plug-in electrics in the Bay Area by putting drivers behind the wheel of the clean, green cars at a series of events around the region.

The first of 20 events at which licensed drivers can take a spin in an electric car will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at San Francisco’s Marina Green Triangle, across from the Safeway on Marina Boulevard near Buchanan Street.

Cars from BMW, Nissan, General Motors, Ford, Tesla, Fiat and other manufacturers will be showcased, though sponsors of the Experience Electric tour aren’t promising which vehicles will be available at each event. They are, however, offering free tacos.
