ORLANDO, Fla., March 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Electrify Expo, North America’s largest electric vehicle (EV) festival, made its debut in Orlando, Fla. with over 1 million square feet filled with the world’s leading brands offering thousands of EV car and two-wheel demos to kick off the 2024 season. Floridians made their way out to Orlando for the first time in record numbers to experience all things electric across multiple demo courses, including the EV Demo District Presented by Hankook, as the state continues to be No.2 in the country in EV adoption.

Rivian’s all-new R2 SUV was a major draw for attendees as the vehicle made its East Coast debut. Attendees were also able to get up close and personal with Tesla’s Cybertruck. In addition, Kia and Volvo returned to the festival with some of their much anticipated EVs including Kia’s EV9 and Volvo’s EX30. Ford returned to the Thrill Zone offering festival goers the opportunity to take a hot lap in the Mustang Mach-E® GT with a professional driver. BMW, Lexus, Toyota, Yokohama, Hankook, JackRabbit, Anker and many others returned to the festival, which is now in its fourth year, to showcase their latest products and technology.

“The turnout in Orlando was massive and it's evidence that EV demand is growing fast,” said BJ Birtwell, CEO and founder of Electrify Expo. “People are more interested than ever in exploring the idea around what it means to go ‘electric’ and to experience the thrill and technology of these amazing vehicles.”

The next stop on the Electrify Expo tour will take place in Phoenix on May 4-5 at State Farm Stadium, home of the 2023 Super Bowl. This will be the festival’s first time in Arizona. Tickets can be purchased at
