Event Report

The Fox Valley Electric Auto Association hosted the 2018 NDEW Naperville EVent at the Naperville Test Track. We had a great turnout of 50 or more EVs/PHEVs! Visitors enjoyed viewing EVs and talking with their owners. We had music (DJed), literature handouts, test drives, and ride alongs. Over 75 people took advantage of the test drive or ride along portion of the EVent, some even going multiple laps around the track.

Event Description


Come out to the Electric Vehicle Ride-n-Drive and Parade sponsored locally by the Fox Valley Electric Auto Association, a not-for-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to educating the public and promoting Electric Vehicles (EVs).  Festivities and parade start at 1:00 p.m. Sunday.  Talk to owners of various Electric Vehicles of all types and models, including cars, hot rods, and trucks converted to Electric by members of the FVEAA, along with EVs  brought by owners, and EVs from the car manufacturers themselves. If you already own an EV, then bring it before 1:00 and participate!  Or come and take a Ride in an EV around the test track.  Ask questions of the experts and owners.  See and drive what EVeryone is talking about... the Electric Vehicle revolution is here!
