The Twin Cities Auto Show is also pleased to announce that Great River Energy, is back for the third year as the title sponsor for the 2018 Electric Room.

The electricity that powers your electric vehicle can come from many sources. Consumers are still learning about their options to power electric vehicles and Great River Energy will be onsite to help educate and answer questions.


Featured in the room will be Plug Into MN – a campaign launched in the Fall of 2017 to drive awareness around the places, experiences and adventures that are possible for electric vehicle owners thanks to the expansion of charging stations around the state. From the Twin Cities to Tettegouche State Park and all the places in between, it’s possible to go farther than ever before in an electric vehicle (EV). With charging stations now located along the I-35 corridor and Highway 61, you can plug in and head out for new experiences and adventures along the way.

Drive Electric Minnesota will also be in the Electric room to answer questions about charging stations throughout the Midwest and electric vehicles owners will be onsite to answer questions about their experience owning an electric vehicle.
