St Petersburg will be the epicenter of the largest Electric Vehicle showcase in Central Florida's Tampa Bay Area on Saturday, September 12 from 10am to 4pm. Activities will run the gamut from electric car ride & drives to short tours in a solar powered electric boat.

Electric car displays and ride and drives will be provided by local dealers of the Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt, BMW i3 and Tesla Model S starting from the Pelican Parking Lot. The electric boat rides will be provided from event sponsor The Electric Marina. 

Coordination is provided by the Sierra Club Florida Healthy Air Campaign and City of St. Petersburg and sponsored by local EV advocates and businesses. Event coordinator Phil Compton says that a few booth spaces and sponsor opportunities are still available. Phil can be contacted at phil.compton@sierraclub.org for details. 

The event will be held in the downtown area at beautiful Spa Beach Park at 615 2nd Ave Northeast. Public parking is available in the Beach Drive Parking Lot, or you can take the Downtown Looper directly to the event.

The National Drive Electric Week event will be collocated with the Green Tech Expo.
