Electric Vehicle Week kicks off in Bay Area

September 24, 2013 2:04:30 PM PDT
The Bay Area is home to one-fifth of all plug-in vehicles nationwide. And if you want to dip your toe into the pool of plug-in drivers this is the week.

That's because it's Electrical Vehicle Week in the Bay Area.

Starting Tuesday, prospective buyers can test drive models like Ford's C-Max Energi, BMW's ActiveE and Nissan's Leaf.

It begins at 1:30 p.m. at Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco.

EV Week continues Wednesday at Palo Alto City Hall and will be held at San Jose's Santana Row on Thursday and Friday.
