SAE 2014 World Congress & Exhibition

April 8-10, 2014

Detroit, Michigan, USA

Cobo Center

Ride & Drive

In 2013, 25 vehicles saw over 1,500 riders with eager attendees waiting for up to an hour for their opportunity to drive the Ford Focus EV, Cadillac SRX, Fiat 500e, and many of the other participating OEMs' and suppliers' vehicles.

We are thrilled to report that we expect the same enthusiasm around the Ride & Drive event for 2014. We've even moved the Ride & Drive next to the Exhibit Floor for a more integrated approach for attendees.

Ride and Drive is open to all registered attendees of SAE 2014 World Congress.

Dates and Times:
Tuesday, April 8 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Wednesday, April 9 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Thursday, April 10 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Vehicles provided by multiple OEMs and suppliers will showcase innovative technologies such as advanced propulsion, recent launches, and specialty or halo vehicles. All vehicles are test driven on a 10 minute course-this is one aspect of World Congress that you don't want to miss!
