CEC is committed to creating a more resilient and just region in the face of climate change. Through our work with the Central Coast Climate Justice Network and elsewhere, our vision includes an end to racial injustices and their resulting environmental inequities.


Every year, more alternative fuel options come onto the market to help us reduce or eliminate the amount of emissions our cars put in the air. Green Car Shows are an efficient and powerful way to bring the community exposure to and education around these new technologies.


CEC organizes at least three Green Car Shows per year in the Central Coast region to showcase the latest alternative fuel technologies in the automotive industry. These shows are your opportunity to kick the tires of cutting edge green vehicles – electric, hybrid, hydrogen, and more – all in one place. Highlights often include an Owners Corner, where attendees can hear the first-hand experience of local owners, and a Ride and Drive that gives attendees a chance to test drive select models.


Attend our Green Car Shows

  • The annual Earth Day Festival Green Car Show, held each April, hosts the largest assembly of efficient and alternative-fueled vehicles in California. First held in 1999, it is the longest-running public Green Car Show in the United States.
  • In honor of National Drive Electric Week in September, we showcase local owners driving a variety of clean fuel cars, including the Tesla Model S, Nissan LEAF, BMW i3 and Fiat 500e.

Share Your EV Story at the Car Shows

Do you own an electric, hybrid, hydrogen or other alternative fuel vehicle? We’d love to have you and your car participate in the Owners Circle at any of our Green Car Shows. Contact Cameron Gray.
