Here are this year’s Show Features – all free with admission:

 The Electric Vehicle Neighborhood and the Electric Garage powered by Xcel Energy will be charged up with experts, examples, and information to help potential EV buyers make their decision to plug in. Take a Ride in an Electric Vehicle in the Electric Vehicle Neighborhood, powered by Xcel Energy. A wide variety of EVs will be available including vehicles from Mercedes,
Polestar, Mitsubishi, Hyundai, and Kia. Located in the Ballroom, the Xcel Energy Garage will have experts on hand to demonstrate how EVs can be charged at your home. Professional drivers will be ready to escort you on a drive in one of more than a dozen latest electric vehicles.

Legendary Meteorologist Paul Douglas is back in 2023 as the Electric Vehicle spokesperson for the Twin Cities Auto Show. An EV owner, Paul advocates for lowering our carbon footprint. He’ll test drive electric vehicles and film his experiences for the Show’s social media and website.

 Ride & Drives will provide attendees with a first-hand feel for the latest vehicles from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Toyota, and Volkswagen. Over 25 vehicles, including the
latest EVs are available for a test drive on local streets.

 RAM Truck Territory is the ultimate in-truck adventure demonstrating the power and capabilities of the RAM Truck lineup. The 30,000-square-foot truck focused interactive ride
experience is designed to highlight offroad and vocational capabilities such as towing, payload, and torque. Professional drivers will drive guests around the challenging course.

 The RAMINATOR, the 10-feet tall, 12-feet wide and five-ton behemoth with the 565 CI Supercharged Hemi Engine, will be on display and will be “revved up” for all to hear many
times during the Show.

 The popular Camp Jeep will take guests on an obstacle course created to simulate some of the rigorous testing that Jeep vehicles endure before customers get behind the wheel. Camp Jeep will feature a thrilling hill climb where passengers experience traction capabilities while climbing the 18-foot high, 35-degree “Jeep Mountain”, where riders are 24+ feet off the ground as they sit on top!

 Luxury Lane has established itself as a must-see for both automotive enthusiasts as well as casual car fans. This year, the fantastic and fancy vehicles will be on display in Rooms 101.

 Subaru will be hosting dog adoptions as a part of their Subaru Loves Pets Campaign. The dogs will be from Midwest Animal Rescues and Services, a local organization committed to the awareness and support of homeless dogs and cats in their area.
