What’s better than a try-before-you-buy auto show?

We’ve been excited about Electrify Expo since we first heard about it: An all electric auto show focused on ride-and-drives, informational exhibits, helpful experts and fun experiences. You can dive into electric car life head first, get all your questions answered and get excited about making the jump to the electric car life.

And, there are a lot of new cars to drive. A LOT.

Cars and Bikes and Scooters, Oh My!

Last year, tens of thousands of people got their first electric car test drive at Electrify Expo. And, they got to ride electric bikes and scooters. The show ends its 2022 run in Austin, winding down on Sunday, November 13. At this event car shoppers can also dive into the world of customized electric cars, electric off roading, home charging and more.

This is Where the Industry Comes to Learn, Too

To kick off Electrify Expo, hundreds of executives from around the country and across the industry attended a conference to discuss what still needs to be done to drive electric car sales, why consumers are hesitant, how government incentives will help and how electric cars will be repaired. Kia’s James Bell shared that Kia is collaborating with KB Homes on a community in California that is built off the grid; Kia is not just selling cars to these homeowners, but leaning what drives their habits when it comes to electric cars. And Stephanie Brinley of S&P Global shared that by 2030 there will be 10 million electric cars sold a year in the US. That’s quite a jump from less than a million in 2021. Clearly, automakers are prepping for a very different world in the near future.
