Electric cars are here, NOW...
come join the EVolution!

There's a new day dawning in the world of electric cars.

Oil-fueled transportation isn't sustainable. We always knew it, though it was hard to admit.

  • Easily drilled oil reserves are running out.

  • Dependence on other countries' oil? That just lets them hold us for ransom! Drilling oil in delicate ecosystems like the Canadian oil sands - well, if we do, those places will never be the same again. Once drilled, forever ruined.

  • Carbon dioxide heats up the atmosphere, air pollution makes us sick...and automobile tailpipes cough up literally TONS of both every day.

But there's an alternative.

Electric vehicles are sustainable transportation, in ways that other "future cars" - like biodiesel, flex-fuel and hydrogen cars - are not.

...problem solved, right? Um, not quite.

...a powerful bunch of politicians and corporations (call them the Oilies, or call them the 1%) are deeply interested in keeping gas-guzzlers all over the roadscape until every last teaspoon of crude oil has been refined and burned.

Why? Because it's profitable - at our future's expense.

So about five years ago, a documentary filmmaker named Chris Paine showed us how the automakers and oil industry had conspired with politicians to "kill the electric car", to deprive us of even the OPTION of buying our beloved cars, and what we saw in his film made us really mad. Lots of us got busy and fought back.

If you saw Who Killed the Electric Car? and got mad, too...come on in. You're in good company.

How to Get Your Own Electric Car

Happily, now there are a lot of ways for you to get an electric vehicle!

  • The regular automakers, including Nissan, Ford, Mitsubishi and Chevy (and soon, Toyota and Honda) are offering quite a few electric powered cars now; some are all electric, like the Nissan Leaf, while others like the Chevy Volt are technically plug-in hybrids.
  • Conversion shops across the country are offering their services to turn your gas-gobbler into an electric vehicle.
  • You can build your own electric car. Lots of folks with no prior experience or special skills have built or converted their own electric vehicles.
  • There are electric car kits available using fiberglass bodies (think Porsche Spyder replica), AC electric motors, and lithium batteries. These are brand new cars, not conversions, and they are built by local small businesses rather than giant international companies.

Come on in and have a look around, take your time. You'll find lots of reliable electric car information and interviews with my friends at conversion shops, electric vehicle motor and lithium battery suppliers, automaker spokespersons, and folks who have built beer-budget electric vehicles in the backyard.
