An Autumn to Remember

The electric vehicle world will be taking some big steps forward this autumn. Four new vehicles are expected out from manufacturers near the end of the year that each push the envelope in some interesting ways and fill market niches that are still barren. So if your lease is expiring soon or you are otherwise in the market for a new car, you can expect to have some exciting new options to pick from.

With luck, we may have some of these vehicles available to test out at National Drive Electric Week, coming on September 10-18. Which reminds me that if you have ever considered becoming a city captain for an event, or signing up as a volunteer, this is the time to do it. You can check out our event map here, and hopefully also add your pin to the map. Read more.
