For the past couple of years there has been an environmental products area in front of the Emerson Building during the Illinois State Fair. This location has featured wind turbines, solar panels, water conservation, last year one plug-in hybrid Toyota Prius conversion ( shown above again this year ) and a hidden Ameren Chevrolet Volt. Also at the 2012 fair inside Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon’s tent – two Mitsubishi i-MiEVs were on display.
Even though this location has a lot of visitor traffic pass – do to the main fairgrounds road being right out front. It never seems that many people stop to have a look at what is on display. The area is cramped and somewhat hidden – unless you are on the sidewalk.
It’s fairly obvious when you watch it – the video is a combination of two separate recordings.
“O’Brien Mitsubishi, based in Normal, IL, is offering something way outside the norm: an absurdly low lease price – the cheapest we’ve ever seen – for on an electric vehicle.”
