Event Report

This year's even featured over 40 vehicles and several dealers like Sharpe Motors and Tesla giving test ride and drives.  The Consumers Energy F150 Lightning was employed making coffee and charging a Zero FX motorcycle from the V2L outlets and generated a ton of interest.  We had a legacy Jet Electrica prototype EV, scooters, Teslas of all varieties, Hertz showing off their Polestar, Bolts, Volts, LEAFs, a Kia EV6 an e-Golf, and even a Jaguar i-Pace.   Thanks to the great turnout at this year's NDEW Grand Rapids!

Event Description


We've confirmed availability of the Meijer Cascade.  Come and check out all the electrified vehicles brought by owners and some dealers.  

Our typical line-up of vehicles includes models from many brands, some EV conversions, electric motorcycles, e-bikes, and even solar-powered golf carts.  We also expect representation by Consumers Energy if you have questions about home EV charger rebates and charging during off-peak rates.

Bring your curiosity and questions...we have answers!
