The brand starts an electric-car revolution in an unlikely place: Normal, Illinois

Normal, Ill., is one of those American towns—like Intercourse, Pa., or Goobertown, Ariz.—that's known mostly for its goofy name.

Sitting inconspicuously amid the corn fields of Illinois and projecting a stubborn Midwestern unpretentiousness, it is indeed one of the most ordinary-seeming places around.
