Volvo maybe is not the major auto house by the sales volume, but the trend is very important here. All automakers are in a hurry to have one of the Electric Cars to offer. Despite of full blown mass media attack on the Electric Cars in the recent days, Plug In America managed to organise Plu In Day in more than 28 cities all across U.S. We should not forget that only two models of mass produced Electric Cars are availible today: Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt. Tesla Roadster can hardly be called as a mass produced with its price and volume (2000 world wide), old Toyota RAV4 EV and coversions are the rest of the electric pack for now.
"National Plug In Day, taking place on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2011, is an unprecedented nationwide observance drawing global attention to the environmental, economic and other benefits of plug-in electric vehicles through simultaneous events staged in at least twenty major cities nationwide.
Plug In America, the Sierra Club, and the Electric Auto Association are teaming up to plan for this effort, which will sound the bell through plug-in parades, tailpipe-free tailgate parties, test-drives and other grassroots activities in:"
