The expo offers festival-goers the opportunity to test-drive electric vehicles before buying. Guests at the outdoor expo can ride, drive and demo electric vehicles, including cars, bikes, motorcycles, scooters, skateboards and more. Brands such as BMW, Porsche, Volvo, Kia and some of the biggest names in the automobile industry will be on-site for visitors to participate in interactive demonstrations.
According to BJ Birtwell, the founder and executive producer of the expo, shares that test-driving electric vehicles are the best ways to increase interest.
"We are logging more than ten to fifteen thousand EV test rides at each of our events, proving that the appetite to try and adopt EVs is there,” notes Birtwell. “Drivers and riders of all types just needed a singular place to get educated on options and try everything electric in one place."
The expo's goal is to give attendees a better understanding and appreciation of electric vehicles. According to the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, Florida is leading the way with the second electric vehicle registrations in the country.
With more than one million square feet of outdoor event space, the Electrify Expo offers a full day of drinks, music, a kids' zone and more.
The family-friendly starts at 10 AM and goes until 5PM, with tickets starting at $20.
