The U.S. National Plug In Day is set to go off with a bang this year. On September 23, people from 60 cities across the country are getting together to enjoy ride ‘n drives, rallies, tailgate parties, charging-infrastructure demos, EV-readiness awards, and best of all, FREE iPads!
The National Plug In Day website has information for various cities — what will be happening, where, and when. Some of the plug-in vehicles that will most likely be available for ride ‘n drives include:
Tesla Model S, Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, Mitsubishi iMiEV, Plug-in Prius, Ford Focus Electric EV, Honda Fit EV, Fisker Karma, BMW ActiveE, Coda, Zero Motorcycles, and such legacy leaders as the Tesla Roadster and Toyota RAV4 EV.
The day is based around the idea of celebrating plug-in vehicles, and highlighting the fun that can be had with them, as well as the clean-air benefits and cost-savings.
And did I mention the free iPads? Plug In America will be giving away one 3rd-generation Apple iPad at 10 separate National Plug In Day Events. It’s a relatively simple process, and all you have to do is visit this Facebook page for all the details on how to enter.
