Free EV Parking

Free VIP Parking, Charging, and Entrance to the Twin Cities Auto Show for Electric Vehicle drivers!

Drive your electric vehicle to the Twin Cities Auto Show and park for free thanks to Great River Energy. This free electric parking is first come, first served, and located off 2nd Ave.

While you are at the show, be sure to check out the newest electric vehicles in the market in the Electric Room.


The Twin Cities Auto Show is also pleased to announce that Great River Energy, is back for the forth year as the title sponsor for the 2019 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.

MN Plug-in Vehicle Owners will also be in the Electric Room to share their experiences in driving, owning and charging electric vehicles in Minnesota. They can also provide more information about public charging station availability throughout the Midwest.
