Event ReportWe had a wide variety of EV's on display from the Chevrolet Bolt to the brand New Rivian SUV. We also had an electric scooter and a concurrent bike show that featured many electric bikes. Our location was on a busy road in Wilmette with very visible signage. Hundreds (or even thousands) of people drove by and saw that EV's were being featured.
