Join the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA) and the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA) as we recharge into Chicago Drives Electric for a comprehensive look at the vehicles and technology that’s driving the EV revolution.

We’ll also have a panel discussion on the state of EVs today with sponsors from Cars.com, CDK Global, ComEd, and Powering Chicago.
