I have been following, writing about, and advocating for electric vehicles for more than 10 years now. And I have to admit, I am growing impatient with the extremely slow uptake of EVs in the United States. After nearly 10 years of having production electric cars available for purchase in the United States, EVs have achieved a paltry penetration rate of about 2%.
There is a lot of misinformation and outright anti-Electric Vehicle propaganda circulating on the internet. After all, BIG OIL and its moneyed interests have A LOT to lose if the world converts to electric vehicles which are far more environmentally and health friendly than any gasoline vehicle ever will be.
Audi will introduce its all-electric 2020 e-tron Sportback at Los Angeles Auto Show Nov. 20. The e-tron Sportback is the car builder's second fully electric production model from Audi of America, and, like the original e-tron, will offer a driving range of more than 200 miles per charge.
There's absolutely no doubt that electric cars are quicker than gasoline cars.
Ten years ago, on Sept. 8, 2009, I launched SolarChargedDriving.Com into the world -- and on to the World Wide Web. A decade later and more than 1,200 articles and blog entries, thousands of photos and dozens of videos, and nearly 300,000 unique visitors from well over 100 different countries later, SolarChargedDriving.Com is still here!
Yes, you CAN do it all -- power your entire home's electricity use AND all of your electric driving via home solar, as Australia's Sylvia Wilson proves.
