EV Week 2013

EV Week Expands to Three Cities

“EV Week 2013: San Francisco to Silicon Valley” was a three-city, five-day electric vehicle exposition designed to engage, educate and excite Bay Area drivers about the benefits, ease and accessibility of EV ownership. EV Week 2013 exhibited the largest selection of state of the art plug-in and ALL electric vehicles at San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza, Palo Alto City Hall Plaza and San Jose’s Santana Row. 

Driving towards California Governor Jerry Brown’s goal of getting 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles on California’s roadways by 2025, EV Week 2013 invited Bay Area drivers from San Francisco to San Jose – from commuters to car sharers – to get behind the wheel of an EV and become part of the solution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by driving greener vehicles.
