The concept of the electric vehicle dates as far back as the 1880s, and there were as many as 30,000 battery-powered vehicles operating, primarily in Europe, at the turn of the 20th century—about as many electric cars sold worldwide in 2011.

But it wasn't until Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Nissan, Tesla, Toyota and Volkswagen began mass-marketing battery-powered autos, that we began seeing more EV's in our neighbors' driveways. On Sunday, Sept. 11, hundreds of Idaho EV drivers are expected to park their clean-air vehicles in the parking lot of Idaho Power headquarters in downtown Boise.

The clean energy showcase, part of the sixth annual National Drive Electric Week, will be the largest EV show in Idaho and will also show off solar installations and electric bicycles.

1-4 p.m., FREE, 1221 W. Idaho Street, Boise, 208-388-2200, driveelectricweek.org.
