New York, NY (Febuary 25, 2022): With a host of innovations and fresh new experiences for potential car buyers, the New York Auto Show has big plans to excite and educate attendees on the benefits of driving electric with a major ‘Electric Test Fest’ that will take up two-thirds of the Show’s lower level. The Show opens to the public April 15-24 (press days: April 13 &14) at the fully-expanded Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan.
With an enormous indoor track, attendees will have the opportunity to ride in a wide range of electric vehicles including new models from Chevrolet, Kia, Nissan, Volvo, and EV start-ups INDI from California and Vietnam’s VinFast. In addition, Ford and Hyundai will incorporate EV test tracks into their own displays on the main show floor so consumers can take a ride in even more electrics.
The New York Auto Show will feature nearly an entire level of the convention center dedicated to plug-in electric vehicles, charging solutions, and consumer awareness programs. Also on Level 1 of the Javits Center, attendees will be able to explore 3-wheeled and 2-wheeled electric vehicles.
“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.”
-- Mark Schienberg, New York Auto Show President
INDOOR TEST TRACKS
The Show’s all-new indoor multi-brand EV Test Track will give consumers an opportunity to experience a wide range of electric vehicles on a ‘green’ themed track built to feel like a drive in the country. Professional drivers will demonstrate the vehicles’ many attributes including quick acceleration, quiet ride and numerous high-tech features while charging partners will highlight the simplicity of EV ownership through a series of informative displays.
PROMOTING ELECTRICS IN THE COMMUNITY
Local franchised new car dealers are in place, excited and ready to sell electric vehicles. They are currently investing millions in EV infrastructure and training to support the growing consumer demand for battery powered cars and trucks. GNYADA, organizers of the New York Auto Show, has been steadfast in its support of electrification and recently held a ride-and-drive event for legislators to educate and encourage those who seek to embrace electrics and support the statewide infrastructure projects that are needed to speed up their adoption.
