The goals of our events are to:
Provide a very accessible and comprehensive setting where both industry and the general public can discover all of the existing alternatives to the way they use energy and transportation.
Motivate everyone to take action to support California’s groundbreaking clean car policies that are driving national and global change.
AltCar is the only event in the United States that has gathered every single model of alternative technology light duty vehicle available for purchase or lease in one location for free test drives. Seeing the diversity of clean vehicles helps to make otherwise esoteric and remote climate policies much more tangible to the public and to the media that is critical to driving mass awareness.
AltCar doesn’t just host exhibits of clean cars, we have been responsible for more direct alternative technology vehicle sales to both fleets and the general public than any other event in the state. Given that 52% of all Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) purchases are happening in California, this event is critical to build upon the momentum for the emerging marketplace.
