Event Report

Hundreds enjoyed a display of a dozen electric vehicles including ten different models of new and used BEVs and PHEVs in the heart of downtown Chicago's busy Daley Plaza. Chicago for Electric Vehicles volunteers talked to attendees about the benefits of driving electric, area dealers provided detailed information and specifications, and Chicago Area Clean Cities offered prizes for EV-related trivia questions.
