ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) – New York State electric vehicle programs will be front and center at this year’s International Auto Show in New York City.

It will run at the Javits Center through April 24th.







Ten fast chargers, able to power electric vehicles in less than 30 minutes will be installed at both the Port Authority and the LaGuardia Airport. This will be a part of the EVolve New York Fast Charging Network which will soon have more than 100 high-speed charging ports across the state.

“Electric vehicles are key to decarbonizing our transportation system and as the global auto industry invests heavily in the latest zero-emission vehicles, New York will continue to focus on expanding our cross-state fast charging network and incentivizing EVs, which will help us transition to a healthier, greener future,” Governor Hochul said. “I am proud to welcome the New York International Auto Show back to New York in person this year and I encourage everyone to visit the Auto Show to see how EVs are fast becoming integral to New York’s clean energy economy.”







Last year Governor Hochul signed legislation setting a goal for all new passenger cars and trucks sold in New York to be zero-emissions by 2035.
