SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The annual Scotch Plains Day downtown street festival on Sunday, Oct. 7, will offer an electric vehicle show at which residents can learn all about the benefits of plug-in vehicles.

Alternative energy and “Plug-in" vehicles will be on display courtesy of Nissan World of Springfield and Global Auto Mall. Representatives from GreenSpot, a smart mobility company that provides EV Car Share and EV infrastructure, will also be on hand to answer questions about electric cars. There will be a special appearance by the Crazy Cranford Cowboy, Steve Bacque, and his electric horse, Charger.

“We would like to invite residents who own electric vehicles to sign up to display their vehicles on Scotch Plains Day and share their experience of driving electric,” says Mayor Al Smith, who along with the Scotch Plains Council, presented a Proclamation in support of Drive Electric Week on Sept. 5.  “If you are a car performance enthusiast, and drive an electric vehicle, you will know that this is the wave of the future.”
