Electric Car Sales Up 10% In US In 2016

Electric car sales in the US were a mixed bag again in March. Several plug-in hybrid models, led by the Chevy Volt, had a strong month and first quarter, but several fully electric models saw lower sales than in the previous year.

Electric Car Charging 101 — Types of Charging, Charging Networks, Apps, & More!

There’s no doubt about it — electric car charging is different from fueling a car with gasoline. On the whole, it’s much more convenient to charge an electric car — you get home, you spend 2–3 seconds plugging in, you go on with your day or night, and you spend 2–3 seconds unplugging when you are […]

How Come Only California Gets The Newest EVs?

The California Air Resource Board has mandated that automakers produce a certain number of zero-emissions vehicles (ZEVs), and 9 other states, most of them in the Northeast, have adopted those same standards. So why are there so many more electric and hydrogen vehicles for sale in California than the 9 other states that follow the same ZEV […]

EV Buyers Are Younger, Richer, & Looking For A Deal

Electric cars are finally starting to hit something akin to critical mass thanks to a wave of early adopters not afraid to plunk down their hard-earned dollars followed by a second wave of early buyers.
