Chattanooga will participate in a nationwide celebration of plug-in vehicles on Sunday, Sept. 29 at the Chattanooga Market and Whole Foods.
Organizers are also promoting the idea that plug-in vehicles are more fun to drive, cost-effective and much better for the environment.
Local events begin at 11 a.m. with a car show at the Chattanooga Market. A parade of the vehicles—called "EV flash drive"—will drive to Whole Foods in North Chattanooga beginning at 1 p.m., followed by an "electric tailgate" party at the store.
Additionally, the latest EV bus from CARTA will be on display.
The Times Free Press reported in February that Chattanooga has nearly 40 charging stations. Tennessee has about 700 charging stations statewide.
Here is a complete list of electric cars that are currently available.
