Electric Vehicle Ride and Drive
Join us at the first ever electric vehicle ride and drive at the Taste of Chicago. Attendees can test drive electric vehicles (EVs) offered by BMW, General Motors and Nissan.
The City and its partners are launching the Drive Electric Chicago Program, the City of Chicago’s initiative to encourage the use of EVs, in-line with the goals of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s environmental agenda, Sustainable Chicago 2015, and his vision to make Chicago the most competitive, livable, and sustainable city in the 21st century.
Through Drive Electric Chicago, the City will also be launching at the event a set of charging station installation guidelines for residents and owners of multi-unit dwellings where over half of Chicago residents live.
Free test drives will be offered Friday, July 11th from 11am-5pm and Saturday, July 12th from 10am-6pm. Participants can sign up for a test drive at the Drive electric Chicago Program booth near the Congress Parkway entrance to the Taste.
