2022 Chicago Auto Show Kicks Off Saturday At McCormick Place

CHICAGO (CBS)-- The Chicago Auto Show, the largest and longest running auto show, is back at McCormick Place.

The 2022 Auto Show kicks off Saturday and organizers are boasting more test tracks than ever.

There will be 13 electric vehicles on display and two test tracks dedicated to electric vehicles. Take a test drive in the new Jeep Wrangler that is so smooth, a representative said "you won't even know it's running."

CBS 2's Marissa Parra even got to test out some tracks as she reported live, giving a preview of the show.

The Kia electric test track is indoors and it may be the reason you switch to an electric car.

"This is a chance to take a car out, feel the power, feel how quiet, comfortable and smooth it is," James Bell, representing Kia, told CBS 2. "It's like feeling the future."
