i loved the documentaries "who killed the electric car" + "revenge of the electric car"
i was thrilled to spot electric car pioneer elon musk in his tesla beside me in palo alto recently. he graciously waved + smiled, when i waved wildly + mouthed "i'm your big fan" :) General Motors credited elon with inspiring them to develop the chevy VOLT.
the day before school started, we drove to the beach in Carmel + had lunch at Doris Day's Cypress Inn in the sunny courtyard full of dogs. on the way home we passed a massive auto show at Pebble Beach + lots of rare vintage + exotic collector cars on the road. i was excited we were in an electric chevy VOLT :)
i'm into electric vehicles to avoid gas consumption + pollution emissions.
the VOLT is futuristic: computer dashboard + the 1st 37 miles is all electric, which can cover my whole day of car travel usually. when i went further than 37 miles, i got 37 mpg or parked it at a charge station (free in most public garages). electric car owners were very friendly + eager to talk about their car's features + the money they save.
the VOLT is quiet, comfortable + roomy. i fit bikes, strollers, skates, + pet carriers inside.
i was just borrowing the VOLT, but now i love it + i miss it sooo much...
