About AltCar Expo

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. AltCar doesn't just host exhibits of clean cars, it has 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 percent of all Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) purchases are happening in California, this event is critical to build upon the momentum for the emerging marketplace.
