Today I got something pretty cool in the mail, “Revenge Of The Electric Car.” It is the sequel to the 2006 documentary, “Who Killed The Electric Car?” Revenge Of The Electric Car follows the 4 men who have essentially led the resurgence of the electric car. Famed car executive, Bob Lutz; Co-Founder and CEO of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk; A man who builds his own electric cars, Greg ‘Gadget' Abbott; and CEO and President of Nissan and Renault, Carlos Ghosn. Each has made a different contribution to developing, designing, and building electric cars. I watched some of the movie today and found it interesting, but won't give too many details. You will have to wait for my review!
A few weeks ago I was walking around the Inner Harbor. When I was walking by the National Aquarium I saw something interesting… a Chevy Volt! The Chevy Volt is GM's media-darling electric car that also has a regular gas engine. It can go for 40 miles on the electric engine, but then you can use the gas engine to go further. It is great place because of the high foot traffic. (Of course, I was the only person interested enough to stop and look at the car.) If you want to check-out the Chevy Volt, go down to the Inner Harbor. I am not sure if it is still there though!
