THINK is hitting the road with GE and other electric vehicle makers for a seven-city electr
ic vehicle experience tour. The event will feature test drives of the THINK City for local business fleet operators, government representatives and other EV stakeholders, along with educational workshops with GE’s EV experts. The tour is designed to help local communities understand the technical and business impacts of the coming wide-spread deployment of EVs in the U.S.
Scheduled tour dates are: San Francisco, March 10; Seattle, March 15; Los Angeles, March 17; San Diego, March 22. Additional spring 2011 EV experience tour dates will be announced later for Austin, New York, and Washington, D.C.
“We are excited to be a part of this unique and important educational event that GE is hosting,” said THINK spokesperson Brendan Prebo. “We’re looking forward to giving hundreds of fleet managers and operators the experience of driving and learning more about the THINK City.”
GE owns one of the world’s largest vehicle fleets and operates a leading global fleet management business. The company has committed to purchasing 25,000 EVs by 2015 for its own fleet and for fleet customers.
