Epic EV Conversions and Awards Galore: SEVA, Ruined EV, Conductive Classics, and More!

Now, let’s shift gears to the awards and jaw-dropping EV conversions. Seattle Electric Vehicle Association (SEVA) Group stole the show with eight jaw-dropping conversions and a haul of awards, including Best EV Conversion, Best Coupe, and Best Truck. Ruined EV was no slouch either, with seven impressive builds and well-deserved recognition. But the real showstopper was Conductive Classics, walking away with the prestigious Best of Show award, and they traveled all the way from Idaho! They also received the Best of Show award during the inaugural Electrify Showoff Driven by Yokohama in Long Beach, securing the first-ever Showoff award.

You might think that’s all there was to it, but no! The Toyo booth had not one, not two, but four Bisimoto cars on display. There was even a Volkswagen Bus that snagged the title of Best Vendor Vehicle. UWashington Formula Motorsports flaunted their race car, proudly taking home the Best Performance award. And Steve Huff from Huff Performance unleashed a 2,400-horsepower dragster and an electric sheep that turned heads.

Exploring the Future of Electric Mobility: From RVs to Boats to Bikes

But that’s not all. Lightship was there with their all-electric RV, and Signature Yachts made attendees drool over their electric boats, priced from $150,000 to $350,000. These boats are like a glimpse into the future of electric boating. And for bike enthusiasts, Bike List had custom EV bikes up for grabs (but for a price).

The Parts Counter Gurus didn’t hold back either, organizing an impressive total of 20 podcasts and content interviews. They delivered valuable insights, and the discussions were incredibly engaging.

Now, let’s talk about the people who made the journey to be part of this electrifying event. Modern Spare came all the way from San Francisco, while The Detail Kid, who happens to be the youngest certified detailer, showed off his skills from Idaho. Marcus from Ruined EV made the trip from SoCal, Samantha drove in from Sacramento with her Rivian, and even Brandon, the event’s drone pilot, drove in from Sacramento as well. Custom EV builders even came from as far as Nashville! It just goes to show how the excitement for EVs is spreading like wildfire.

And speaking of wildfire, the West Coast knows how to set things ablaze, metaphorically speaking, of course. Seattle’s Electrify Showoff Driven by Yokohama is just one shining example. Ruined EV has been on fire, winning five times and grabbing four Best of Show titles in the last five shows. They only fell short once in Long Beach.
