Electrify Expo, the largest electric vehicle (EV) festival in North America, is set to deliver electrifying entertainment for people of all ages in Miami this weekend, from October 14th to 15th, at the Miami Dade Fairgrounds. Festival-goers can experience firsthand the world’s top electric cars and trucks, as well as electric motorcycles, e-bikes, e-scooters, e-skateboards, and more through rides, test drives, and demos.
“We’re headed back to Miami for our third year but this will be our biggest festival yet in the Sunshine State,” said BJ Birtwell, CEO and founder of Electrify Expo. “Miami is one of the top regions in the country for EV adoption so our festival fits right in with their desire to go electric. The entire weekend will be filled with entertainment including all types of thrilling demo courses, massive kids zones, great music, displays and local food trucks.”
According to the South Florida Business Journal, Miami is the top metro-area in the south for EV adoption due to the plethora of electric vehicle registrations and their investment in public EV charging stations. Electrify Expo is driving directly to the southern EV hub for consumers to experience the exhilarating feeling of going electric.
Electrify Showoff, a custom car show within the festival, is also back and celebrating the personalization and customization that Miami is known for with a twist – all of the vehicles are electric. Showoff features the world’s most radical customized EVs and inspires Electrify Expo attendees with ideas of how they can customize their own rides.
Electrify Expo Miami will be the second to last stop of the 2023 tour. Volvo’s EX90 fully-electric SUV and EX30 compact electric SUV will make their public debut in Miami at this weekend’s event. One of the most anticipated EVs of the year, the all-new spacious Kia EV9 SUV with third row seating for up to seven passengers, will also be on display at the festival before it hits the roads later this year. Volkswagen makes its Electrify Expo return with the highly-anticipated ID.Buzz and ID.4 along with other automakers like Mitsubishi, Porsche and many more.
Tesla will be exhibiting their full lineup with Models 3, S, X & Y as well as Optimus, better known as the Tesla Bot.
