National Plug-in Day

National Plug-in Day was on 10/16 - an unprecedented nationwide observance drawing global attention to the environmental, economic and other benefits of plug-in electric vehicles through simultaneous events staged in at least twenty major cities nationwide. Plug In America, the Sierra Club, and the Electric Auto Association teamed up to plan for this effort, which notified cities across our nation to commence plug-in parades, tailpipe-free tailgate parties, test-drives and other grassroots activities. Our flagship event will be a huge parade of plug-in vehicles in the L.A. area. Chris Paine, director of the films “Who Killed the Electric Car?” and “Revenge of the Electric Car,” has agreed to be among the speakers at this celebration. We expect to at least double the number of vehicles from history’s greenest procession, the 78-vehicle parade staged by Plug In America in 2009 (and 180 in Santa Monica's 2011) was in sync with President Obama’s inauguration. Electric vehicles already enable thousands of miles of cleaner, petro-free driving. Help tell the world about the benefits of driving on electric avenue!
