Electric Vehicles in the news

The August 24, 2009 edition of The New Yorker magazine contains an article by Tad Friend titled Plugged In: Is the Electric Car the Future?

It's a profile of Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla. It also mentions E. V.s being planned by Ford, Chrysler, Renault, Nissan, Mitsubishi and the Chinese government, but makes no mention of the MINI-E.

Our electric Porsche conversion was just on the local news as well as the fact that we're in the process of converting a 2009 MINI Clubman to plug-in electric. Check us out at evtv.me.
