Yesterday Gavin proudly took the wraps off his promised "Green Vehicle Showcase" in front of City Hall, which is meant to herald the Bay Area's becoming the "EV Capital of the U.S." (Why not go for the world?) At the moment, the showcase has a few vehicles parked in their spaces with a nice placard talking up the goodness of plug-in cars. The showcase will be used for a two-year demonstration of the technology; city vehicles will charge there, and so will City CarShare and Zipcar. New toys!
