This Saturday’s Michigan Electric Vehicle Rally and Show promises to be exciting for electric car enthusiasts.

Michigan Electric Auto Association President Larry Tuttle of Ann Arbor said many of the organizers and participants in the event are from Washtenaw County.

The second annual event will feature more than 40 electric vehicles ranging from recent models, such as the 2010 Tesla Roadster, dating back to a 1916 Detroit Electric. It runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the campus of Schoolcraft College on Haggerty Road between Six and Seven Mile roads in Livonia. It is sponsored by the Michigan Electric Auto Association and the Schoolcraft College Electronic Technology Program and is free and open to the public.
