EV Week 2012

EV Week Success!

With EV Week Success, San Francisco on the Way to Become the Electric Vehicle Capital of America

With Mayor Ed Lee officially proclaiming the City’s first-ever EV Week this September 17, 2012, San Francisco is well on its way towards becoming the most electric vehicle (EV) friendly city in America.

Thousands visited the EV Expo on Justin Herman Plaza over two days to check out the latest from major car manufacturers and car sharing companies, EV charging solutions, including clean energy EV charging. Between 300-400 people got behind the wheel of an electric vehicle for a ride and drive, showing off their “EV Grins” after experiencing the power and handle of an EV.

Organized by Charge Across Town, a collaborative campaign between city government, local businesses and the electric vehicle community, EV Week was an important event to support the growth of the EV infrastructure in San Francisco inspiring people to move to fuel cell and electric vehicles.
