The town of Normal, Illinois is not normal.

It's EV Town USA and for good reason, one of which is the city's 300-plus plug-in vehicles.

Normal, Illinois (along with nearby Bloomington, Illinois) set out on a mission years ago to become the most EV-friendly place in the United States.

The two cities offer all sorts of incentives for EV purchasers, including a sales tax rebate and charging stations everywhere (the current count is at 48 Level 2 sites, one CHadeMO unit and one Tesla Supercharger location).

All of the area's charging stations are free.

There are additional incentives in EV Town, USA, which you'll hear of in this moving 13-plus minute video shared with us via Brad Horton through the Chevy Volt owners on Facebook.  Brad, a resident of Montrose, Illinois, says this video of Normal, Illinois makes him "so proud."  We're right there with you on this one Brad.
