Help Normal People Learn About Electric Cars In Sarasota, Los Angeles, Huntsville, Oxnard, San Diego, Ventura, DC, Iowa City, Mexico City, Melbourne, Taipei, Etc.
National Drive Electric Week is starting. This annual event has been going on for nearly a decade to raise awareness around electric vehicles (EVs). It’s organized by Plug In America, the Sierra Club, and the Electric Auto Association, but the core of the work is in the grassroots around the United States and even now the world
This is the day we all feared would come, the day when EVs no longer make the streets quieter and let us hear the songs of birds or talk to each other at a normal volume. Lawmakers in the US, Canada, and Europe have mandated laws that make fully electric vehicles (BEVs) audible at speeds under 30 km/h (18 mph). We now know the sounds a Tesla will make
is making it easier for owners of EVs as well as future EV owners by introducing a mandatory electric car charging point for each newly built home
I’ve lived in Tampa for almost 30 years and have owned EVs for 7½ hurricane seasons, so I thought with Dorian coming to visit Florida that I should write an article on how having an EV changes your hurricane planning. Last year was different from previous years, because I had a Tesla, and this year is different again, because I don’t have a gas car (but my daughter lives 10 miles away and has a Ford C-Max, so I could use that)
Or, once again, why electric cars [on their own] won’t save us.
While the name 80DR might not sound too familiar yet, its aim, racing electric vehicles (EV) around the world in 80 days, is taking shape. In fact, it will go to the start line in Paris, France, in June
It was nearly a year ago that I wrote an article on CleanTechnica about taking a 300 mile journey in a relatively short-range car, the Peugeot iOn, which is capable of only 50 to 70 miles at the absolute most on a single charge. The idea behind it was to say to people, “Look at me doing this. If I can do it in this little car, anyone can make use of an EV for a longer journey, especially a modern EV with 100 to 300 miles of range.” I thought it might give people more confidence to consider getting an EV, knowing it can be used for any journey, and knowing that you do not need 400 miles of range to make an EV practical for everyday use
Electrify America has created a new educational campaign designed to take away the fear of electric cars. It says EVs are the new normal.
