A good event for people you know who are thinking about going
electric. Please spread the word!
And if you know any owners of the recently arrived Prius Plug-in
Hybrid, Tesla S, Ford Focus, please reach out to them and send them
my way: the organizers may be able to add them to the program (which
will also be broadcast and podcast).
All major automakers are now selling models that are totally gas free
(Nissan, Ford, Tesla) or run on electricity and gasoline (GM,
Toyota). Charging stations are popping up around the state and
customers are getting used to a whole new way of fueling their
mobility. While these cars are often associated with environmental
benefits, drivers say the zippy and quiet driving experience is a
main reason to cut the fuel line. How bad is range anxiety? What’s
the best part of owning a car with a plug? What’s your story of
driving on electricity?
This program will feature owners of battery electric and plug-in
hybrid cars discussing their life on the cutting edge of a new
paradigm of personal mobility.
