BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- Binghamton residents were able to see and even ride in some electric cars this weekend.

In honor of National Driving Electric Week, Triple Cities Makerspace held a street show Sunday.

Part of State Street was blocked off to showcase dozens of electric vehicles. People were also able to check out an electric motorcycle and lawn mower. 

Drivers on hand say they've saved a lot of money by going electric. 

"Where we live this costs us $32 a month to charge it," said driver Kevin Carpenter. "Our minivan was costing us around $300 a month in gas.  So that's a huge difference right there."

According to Charge New York, there are now more than 1,600 electric stations across the state.
