TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - As National Drive Electric Week continues, the Capital City showed off several ways to do that Saturday.

Sustainable Tallahassee hosted the city's first annual Electric Vehicle Expo at Saint Paul's United Methodist Church.

More than 50 electric vehicles, including a StarMetro bus, SUVs and bikes, were on display, while ReThink Energy Florida and Creation Care at Saint Paul's UMC set up information tables.

Several car owners and dealers explained the benefits of driving electric, from helping the environment to saving money.

Organizers told WTXL they were only expecting about 30 cars, and that next year, they'll need a bigger place to showcase everything.
