Editor’s Note: As part of our 10-day countdown to Electric Vehicle Day 2018 at Liberty Station, every day we will share information about a special aspect of the event or news about electric vehicles and why they matter for the health and sustainability of our communities.
EV Day 2018 in San Diego – the largest local gathering of electric vehicles – is coming up in exactly ten days at Liberty Station in the Point Loma area of San Diego.
On Saturday, Sept. 15, come test drive the latest models of electric vehicles. We have secured more than 40 fully electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles for test drives and displays. Cars made by more than a dozen automakers will be represented, including Honda, Chrysler, Toyota, Nissan, BMW, Mitsubishi, Kia, Chevrolet, Mercedes, Audi, Tesla, and Arcimoto (which makes a three-wheel fun utility vehicle, FUV).
