Day: Saturday, September 28th, 2013
Time: 3 PM to dark
Location: Pavilions Mall area
9175 E Indian Bend Rd  Scottsdale
Electric Vehicles Showcased at National Plug-In Day Event
Electric vehicle drivers, enthusiasts, and intrigued local residents can check out the latest in electric vehicles from 3 p.m. to dark Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Scottsdale Pavilions as part of the third annual National Plug In Day.

More than 80 electric vehicles are registered to attend the event hosted by the Phoenix Electric Auto Association and the Sierra Club.

"Not only are electric vehicles freeing Americans from the gas pump and cleaning the air of dirty fumes, they are more fun to drive," said Jim Stack, president of the Phoenix Electric Auto Association. "The Scottsdale Plug In Day event showed our community how cars and trucks can drive thousands and thousands of miles without any oil or gas, saving money, making driving more fun, and slashing carbon pollution, air pollution and our dependence on oil."

This event is one of more than 60 across the country where electric vehicle owners and their neighbors will hold electric car parades, "tailpipe-free" tailgate parties, recognition of leaders promoting EVs, launches of new public EV charging stations, and other public events.
Various makes and models will be on hand including Ford's electric offerings - the Focus Electric, Fusion Energi and C-MAX Energi.

"The number of EV miles increases dramatically as more Ford plug-in vehicles and other manufacturer's EVs hit the road," said Mark Witthar, Phoenix Regional Manager for Ford Motor Company. "August delivered our best sales month ever for Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid and our best sales month year-to-date for C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid."
