Haven’t had enough electric vehicle (EV) news lately? Check out these 10 EV stories below. 1. Toyota has unveiled the ME.WE concept EV. It’s a cute little car, reminiscent of a Mini Cooper, in my opinion.

Check out several pictures and a couple videos via the link above. 2. BYD … Read More

When I was the executive director of a nonprofit organization in Charlottesville, VA, focused on expanding the area’s transportation options (most notably, bicycling and mass transit), one of my aims was to get a bike-sharing program rolling in the city.

Tesla's Commitment To Being Great
