One of America's most vocal plug-in vehicle advocacy groups, Plug In America, wants to march for Obama. According to PIA's Paul Scott, the group has applied for a space in the Presidential Inaugural Parade this coming January in Washington, DC. PIA won't just be walking behind a RAV4 EV and tossing out candy. No, the plan is to participate with "the world's speediest and most sophisticated electric vehicles before the millions who will be watching coverage of this momentous event. Imagine a phalanx of Tesla Roadsters, eBoxes from AC Propulsion, Vectrix and Zero motorcycles, a converted Prius, Volt and PHEV Ford Escape and a Toyota RAV4 EV to show longevity - all led by a float consisting of an electric truck covered with solar PV and a windmill." Take that, Macy's. According to PIA's application letter (available after the break), Ford, General Motors, Tesla and other companies have already given firm commitments to participate.
Now that would be one sweet inaugural parade!
