EV Week 2016 Best EVer!

The 5th Annual 2016 EV Week was a huge success during Fleet Week weekend in San Francisco at Pier 27.Along with the spectacular airshows, attendees were treated to FREE test-drives and tacos in the latest fuel cell electric cars including the Toyota Mirai, Honda Clarity, and Hyundai Tucson, along with the KIA Soul and latest Nissan Leafs.Electric bikes, motorcycles and solar charging, educational displays, EV related informational booths and demonstration areas helped make the two-day event an engaging experience for all.The weekend kicked off with a VIP reception at LYFT HQ where guests heard from executives from LYFT, PG&E, CALSTART, and the SF Department of the Environment, on "EVs - the Next 5 Years!"; the discussion was moderated by SF Chronicle's David Baker.Special thanks to EV Week sponsors, PG&E, Honda, KIA, Envision Solar, Nissan, California Fuel Cell Partnership, and the PEV Collaborative, and our supporting partners PlugShare, Sunpower, CleanPowerSF, FreeWire, The New Wheel, and the City of San Francisco!
