Held at the Higgins House parking lot at WPI, the event displayed a number of electric vehicles to show people the newest technology the industry has to offer. The event coincided with National Drive Electric Week, which “is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today’s widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars” according to the National Drive Electric Week. The General Motor Volt, Ford Fusion Energi, Tesla Model X, as well as a number of electric-assist bicycles were on display.
Judith Judson, commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources said the state has set a goal of getting 300,000 zero-emissions vehicles on the road by 2025, up from the current 6,500 vehicles.
The New England Council thanks National Grid and WPI for promoting environmentally friendly transportation through this event.
