Modern Day Motor City – Charged 2013 Coverage (Video)

Silicon Valley Leadership Group’s third Annual “Charged” event hosted at SAP Labs was a huge success. CBS Affiliate KPIX was on hand and captured some of the parking lot activities that ran in parallel with the indoor sessions.

Over 20 Electric Vehicles were on display for viewing and test drives. Another fantastic progress revealing statistic: About 50 of the attendees arrived at the event driving their Plug-In Hybrid and Battery Electric Vehicles.

Congrats and credit to Green OnRamp’s Marina Cerin-Stith for organizing the highly praised Ride & Drive portion of the event right here in the heart of “Modern Day Motor City”. Note: Embedded video requires Adobe Flash, visit KPIX to view on iOS.
