WASHINGTON, July 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Electrify Expo, North America’s largest electric vehicle (EV) festival, is bringing all-electric fun for families, shoppers and thrill seekers to Washington DC this weekend for an action-packed event, July 22-23, at RFK Stadium Festival Grounds. Attendees at Electrify Expo will ride, drive and demo the world's leading electric cars and trucks alongside electric motorcycles, e-bikes, e-scooters, e-skateboards and more. This is Electrify Expo’s first and only stop in Washington DC for the 2023 tour season.

“The most effective way to drive EV adoption is by putting people behind the wheel or on the seat of an EV, e-bike, e-scooter, or whatever type of electric vehicle they have their eye on,” said BJ Birtwell, CEO and founder of Electrify Expo. “Our tour will generate over 200,000 demo rides this year and many of those first time EV shoppers will convert to going electric right at our festival. We are on the front lines of EV adoption and happy to be bringing all-electric fun to DC on July 22-23.”

Electrify Expo Washington DC will be the second stop for Volvo’s new EX90 fully-electric SUV and the first time the vehicle is displayed to the public on the East Coast. The much-anticipated Volkswagen ID.Buzz will also continue on the tour, with its eye-catching old-school VW bus look paired with “new-school fuel”.
