Plug In America

Plug In America is a non profit organization that promotes electric vehicles at the consumer, government, and car manufacturer level.

I first heard about them when I attended the Electric Car Parade in
Santa Monica, January 2009.

Some Plug In America members get to test drive some of the new trendsetting electric cars before the rest of the general public does. Lucky!

Some quick facts from their website:

- Today's batteries can take EVs 300 miles on a single charge.

- Battery Electric Vehicles (EVs) are by far the most efficient motorized vehicles in the world and use 3-4 times LESS energy than hydrogen fuel cell cars.

- EVs powered by the US electrical grid are cleaner than gas, E85, biodiesel & fuel cells.

- Plug-in cars capable of 50 miles per day would meet the needs of 80% of the American driving public. Source: U.S. Department of Transportation.

- We will never fight a war over electricity.
