Electrify Expo: EV Interest Soars as North America's Largest Electric Vehicle Festival Comes To NY

03 Aug 2022

Electrify Expo, North America's largest electric-vehicle festival, charges into New York Saturday, August 27, and Sunday, August 28, at the Nassau Coliseum. The outdoor festival offers attendees the chance to test-drive and try-before-they-buy hundreds of the world's leading EV mobility brands, including electric cars, e-bikes, e-motorcycles, e-skateboards, e-scooters, and more.

Last month EVs passed the critical tipping point of 5% of new car sales in the U.S., according to a recent Bloomberg analysis, signaling the start of mass adoption. The United States still has a long way to go to achieve its 40% carbon reduction goals. Most states, including New York, are mandating that all new car sales be zero carbon by 2035.

"Consumer Reports' most recent survey documents that the best way to spike interest and adoption of electric vehicles is to put consumers behind the wheel or on the seat of one; and that's exactly what we're doing at Electrify Expo," said BJ Birtwell, founder and executive producer of Electrify Expo. "Additionally, tax credits for both new and used EVs are going to be critical in spurring EV adoption. If the proposed $4,000 for a used EV and $7,500 new EV tax credits pass in this week's legislative package, it makes Electrify Expo the place to be where attendees can test out everything all in one place."

Attendees of Electrify Expo will experience nearly 1 million square feet of exhibits and test rides and learn about EV technology and charging. Brands like BMW, Toyota, Kia, Lexus, Polestar, Volvo, Volkswagen, Chrysler, and Harley-Davidson's Livewire will be on-site. E-Bike brands like Specialized, SUPER 73, and many others are also on display and doing demos. Multiple demo courses for one-wheel, two-wheel, three-wheel, and the latest in electric vehicles offer the thrill and excitement of what it means to go electric. The family-friendly festival also includes the Hover-1 Kids Zone with test rides for New York's younger thrill seekers.
