    "Today, we see a future that is electric and the New York Auto Show is once again at the leading edge of the process by which potential car buyers come to understand, desire, and ultimately purchase, the incredible products that the automobile industry has to offer," said Mark Schienberg, New York Auto Show President.

    An 'Electric Test Fest'  will educate attendees about the benefits of going electric. Nearly an entire level of the convention center will be dedicated to plug-in electric vehicles, charging solutions, and consumer awareness programs. Attendees will also be able to explore 3-wheeled and 2-wheeled electric vehicles.  The Electric Test Fest will host more than two dozen companies as well as home, mobile, and curbside charging partners committed to consumer education and EV adoption. The exhibit is sponsored in part by Con Edison, Charge NY, New York Power Authority, NYSERDA and JD Power.
