Event Report

With nice weather for a change, we had a better than last year turn out. This year saw 14 different makes/models show up to illustrate the wide range of EVs available with over 25 vehicles in attendance. The FVEAA even gained a few new members as well. Lots of story-telling took place with EV grins breaking out all over the parking lot. Many ride-and-drives kept the enthusiasm going for investing in the EV lifestyle.

Event Description

 

Join us for two different electric vehicle (EV) Ride-n-Drive events sponsored by the Fox Valley Electric Auto Assn. (FVEAA), the Chicagoland Chapter of the EAA - the Electric Automobile Assn. This is the Northern event occurring in Arlington Heights, IL. Our Southern event will be in Naperville.  

The FVEAA is a not-for-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to educating the public and promoting EVs. Attend our event to talk to owners and experts of many different kinds of EVs - cars, trucks, conversions, dealer brands, and home-builts and enjoy driving one of the EVs on display.
