Electric Vehicles

This year's Show puts an emphasis on the growing trend around Electric Vehicles. With government incentives and manufacturers pushing to go green by 2030, EVs have become the most important product in the auto industry.

At the center of the showroom floor is the 50,000-square-foot E-Track where guests will be able to experience the ride in an electric vehicle.

There will be five manufacturers providing vehicles: Toyota, Ford, Chevy, Nissan and Volkswagen. The E-track not only gives guests the chance to see and feel the car, surrounding the area is a host of experts to answer questions on what it takes to live the EV lifestyle.

6 Things to See

The Philadelphia Auto Show is described as three shows in one.

The showroom provides the latest trends from manufacturers.

Downstairs, Custom Alley shows the possibilities of how a car can become a creative masterpiece through aftermarket upgrades.

And the Classics in the Grand Hall is one of the best collections in the country connecting generations of car-lovers.

We'll round up these spots on the floor plus Exotic Alley and the Hollywood Rides.
