By From page A2 | May 14, 2014

Andy Frank, a UC Davis professor known for his invention of the first plug-in electric hybrid car in 1972, will speak Thursday evening at the California Automobile Museum in Sacramento.

The event also includes the screening of a┬ádocumentary film, “Who Killed the Electric Car?,” followed by a question-and-answer session. The event is designed to complement the museum’s rotating exhibit, “It’s Electrifying: Alternative Fuel Vehicles in California!” sponsored by SMUD.

The museum is at 2200 Front St. in Sacramento. Beer and wine sales begin at 5 p.m., the film will be shown at 6 p.m. and the Q&A plus Frank’s remarks follow.

The program is free with museum admission, which costs $8 general, $7 for vintage or AAA members, $4 for students and free for children under 5 and museum members.

The California Automobile Museum is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and until 9 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month. Its mission is to preserve, exhibit and teach the story of the automobile and its influence on our lives.
