Also on display were types of electric transportation, notably bikes and watercraft. Local owners who want to participate can still sign up for the show at: http://tinyurl.com/ShowYourCar

On display were the new high range, low-cost Chevrolet Bolt and Hyundai Ioniq, Nissan LEAF, Tesla Models S and X, BMW i3, Mercedes Benz B-Class and Ford Focus Electric. Plug-In Hybrids are included that have an all-electric motor primarily with some gas-powered assistance yielding a very long driving range; included are the Chevrolet Volt and Volvo XC-90 SUV.
