Event Report

In addition to a good variety of current models, the event included a newly-introduced LSEV (low-speed EV) and several E-Bikes.
Probably garnering the most attention: the Rivian truck.

Event Description


Come learn about many different electric vehicle (EV) models available from your friends and neighbors at our local EV exhibit in the parking lot of St. John’s Church at 1235 Wilmette Avenue in Wilmette. Check out the new Rivian truck and a variety of EVs from Tesla, Hyundai, Chevrolet, Volkswagen and Nissan, and more.
