Plug In America
This is a very useful and extensive site dedicated to informing the world about EVs. It is put together by a coalition of RAV4-EV drivers, former lessees of Honda EV+, GM EV1, Ford Ranger and Ford Th!nk City electric cars, and advocates of clean air and energy independence. Prior to 2008, Plug In America functioned as a loose network of individuals organized around websites of various names (like dontcrush.com and saveEV1.com) and then coalesced as a chapter of the Electric Auto Association. On January 2, 2008 Plug In America became a separate California Non-Profit Corporation.

This web site offers information about EVs, PHEVs, electric charging, locations of electric charging stations in the U.S. and more. It is dedicated to covering and promoting EV and PHEV technologies.

PluginCars.com was founded by Brad Berman, who created HybridCars.com in 2003. The PluginCars.com team of writers, researchers and industry analysts will report the news and related consumer info about your favorite electric-drive vehicles. The site hosts multiple online communities, each gathered around a specific EV or plug-in hybrid. And it provides opportunities for each vehicle-specific community to interact with the other—as a way to form a growing movement of electric drivers.

World Electric Vehicle Association Journal
The WEVA Journal is a scientific journal that covers all studies related to battery, hybrid and fuel cell electric vehicles comprehensively. The journal is intended to complement the EVS (Electric Vehicle Symposium), which is the largest international symposium of its kind and is coordinated by the World Electric Vehicle Association.
