Electric vehicle free showcase makes mark in north Alabama
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - On Saturday in Huntsville’s MidCity District, a variety of electric vehicles were on display to raise awareness for all-electric and all-plug-in hybrid vehicles.
The event was sponsored by the North Alabama Chapter of Drive Electric Alabama to promote the benefits of driving an electric vehicle, including reduced emissions, lower fuel and maintenance costs, and a smoother driving experience.
As part of National Drive Electric Week, this event helped provide more insight into the growing trend of driving an electric vehicle. Huntsville was the final stop of four electric vehicle showcases in Alabama sponsored by Drive Electric Alabama with the other stops being in Auburn, Mobile and Birmingham.
Mark Bentley, the Executive Director of Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition said the event is to provide more of an understanding for people wanting to make the switch to electric vehicles.
”People are getting the word. But most people need to look, feel, kick the tires on electric vehicles,” said Bentley. “[They need to] ask questions that are on their mind to get a warm sense of security [for] when they look for their next vehicle.”
The organization, Drive Electric Alabama, is a statewide education platform dedicated to improving the state through electric vehicles. Learn more about Drive Electric Alabama, by clicking here.
