AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Electrify Expo, North America’s largest electric vehicle (EV) festival, has announced plans to expand its 2024 festival tour, adding three new locations in Orlando, Phoenix and Denver - making it the event’s largest schedule yet. The tour kicks off in Orlando in March and will continue all the way through November to the final stop in Austin, Texas. Building on the success of previous years, Electrify Expo will grow its number of demo experiences to include nearly all forms of electric transportation providing meaningful, firsthand experiences to attendees. This year, the expo will have a record number of demo zones for consumers of all ages to feel the thrill of going electric in electric cars and trucks, as well as e-bikes, e-motorcycles, e-dirt bikes, e-scooters, e-skateboards, low-speed vehicles + so much more.

"The demand and curiosity from US consumers about electric vehicles is growing," said BJ Birtwell, CEO and founder of Electrify Expo. "All the research about EV adoption points to the importance of first-hand experiences being the pivotal factor that will accelerate the transition to electric vehicles of all types. Electrify Expo is North America’s leading provider of these experiences and our growth speaks to the impact we are having on the industry.”

In the eight tour stop season, the three new 2024 locations include:
