SEMA SHOW IS PLUGGING IN WITH NEW EXHIBIT FOR 2022

There Will Be More EV Conversion Vendors And Educational Sessions Than Ever Before

2022 SEMA Electrified

The 2022 SEMA Show is happening in a few weeks, and while there’s bound to be tons of high-octane show stoppers, this year will be a little different. The Specialty Equipment Marketing Association has recently announced the “SEMA Electrified” exhibit for the upcoming show, taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center starting November 1. SEMA Electrified will highlight the uses of EV technology and present you with aftermarket EV solutions for classic muscle cars and trucks.

Given the political climate towards automobiles, it’s not abnormal to see such a push for all things electric at SEMA. The exhibit started in 2019 and has grown every year since. What makes this year different however is the addition of so many new EV’s from the Detroit based auto makers. Since 2019, Ford has electrified its top-selling pickup truck, the Hummer has made a comeback as an all-electric behemoth that can strafe and even drive itself in some cases, and Dodge is teasing a fully-electric muscle car future with its upcoming Dodge Charger Daytona Banshee.

 

That being said, the exhibit this year will focus on how to convert your existing rides into fully electric ones among other things. We’ve seen examples of some of this work in years past with the all-electric Ford F-100 from last year. Per a press release from SEMA, their goal is to put more aftermarket EV vendors in front of you than in years past.

 

In addition to a plethora of EV conversion companies to chat up, there will also be countless educational sessions you can choose to attend as well as many “in-progress” EV conversions on display with owners nearby to discuss the in’s and out’s of it all. The electrified exhibit will be located in the North Hall in booth 11268.
