Auto enthusiasts arriving at the Electrify Expo festival next month in Long Beach, Calif., will find familiar products from Hyundai, Toyota, Volvo and about a half-dozen other automakers.
You will also find much more.
From electric unicycles to conventional electric bikes, electric motorcycles and electric boats, the event features electric mobility options of all kinds, and they’re ready for curious consumers willing to shell out more than $20 for a daily ticket.
Electrify Expo held its first event in September 2020 and three more last year. The Long Beach show, scheduled for June 3-5, is the first of five planned for 2022 in the U.S. As its reach has grown, the expo has drawn interest from automakers at a time where traditional auto shows are constantly changing.
In between those shows, IAA Mobility took a step towards a broader mobility audience last fall, with two of its nine halls in Munich dedicated to bike manufacturers. Electrify Expo comes from the other side of the mobility spectrum, founded with a focus on electric bikes and now branching out into automotive.
