Recent Pledge comments:
Dean T. from Los Angeles is shopping for an electric car: " Shopping for a carpool vehicle, I have considered the Chevrolet Spark via a lease. My Chevrolet Silverado 12mpg is not a great commuter vehicle. I need to make a change!"
Nelson C. from Clarence-Rockland, Ontario Canada drives a 2014 Ford C-Max Energi writes: "Just got my new 2014 C-MAX ENERGI last Friday, August 29, 2014 and I am trying to run on electric mode most of the time. Unfortunately, I work for the Federal Government and they don't really care about installing infrastructure for us "Green people" to charge our vehicles at work. I love my car and I will do anything to save as much gas as possible."
Jerry C. from Folsom, CA drives a Fiat 500e writes: "WISH I HAD TWO!"
Jean Marc from Mascouche, Quebec Canada is a new 2015 Kia Soul EV owner: "Already reserved my Kia Soul EV! Hoping for it to get here in October!!!
JD Taylor from Poolesville MD (Poolesville Green Facebook) drives a Ford Fusion Energi: "I am a Ford Fusion Energi driver. I do hate when I have to use Gas, it is rare, but it did allow me to drive from Poolesville, MD to Kennedy Space Center, FL (900 miles, 14 hrs) only stopping once for Gas (three times for bathroom). I still think PHEV are an important step to EVs and will buy EVs when the full infrastructure gets built, ranges get extended and cost comes down. If I could afford it now, I would gladly replace my Fusion for a Tesla S or X. So yes, I think PHEVs are in important part of Plug-In week or NDEW. I think most will make the full change to EV, as someday so will the ICE drivers."
Sara S. from Corona, CA Supports green initiatives, sustainablility, and getting more electric vehicles on the road. "I can actually see the air quality getting worse and am dedicated to getting gas guzzlers off the road and more electric vehicles in their place."
Timothy H. from Belleville, IL drives a 2013 Volt: "EVs are the way to go!"
Karl from Gatineau, Quebec Canada drives a Nissan Leaf: "Electric Cars Rock!!!"
Richard S. from Newtwon CT drives a Ford Fusion Energi 2013: "A plug-in hybrid was the perfect choice for me because New England has made no concerted effort to create EV charging stations within commuting distances from each other. My Fusion gets 21 miles on a charge and my commuting distance is about 27 mi each way. Luckily, my employer has charging stations so I only use about 2/10 of a gallon round trip.
So let's replace parking meters with charging stations, put charging stations in every public garage and parking lot, every state park, every highway rest stop, every airport and railway station, and every park and ride.
I am disappointed in Tesla using a different standard so other drivers cannot take advantage of their stations. This is rather short sighted from a global view.
Let's get going and do it right this time before we destroy the environment. And maybe we can stop fighting over foreign oil, stop oil rigs in the gulf, stop destroying the country with poisonous fracking and just get it done.
Mike S. from Bakersfield owns two Volts, 2011 and 2013: "2011 Volt 94 mpg lifetime, 2013 Volt 248 mpg".
Joe S. from Cranford, NJ drives a Ford Focus EV: "Driving an all electric car in New Jersey is wonderful! We finally get to pump our own fuel at home and on the road, with no messy smell on your hands or clothes! Do your EV homework, know your driving limits and you will see how much fun owning an EV is."
Gary F. in California drives a Chevy Volt: "There used to be a soap commercial that said... "Aren't you glad you use Dial (soap), don't you wish everyone did." That is the way I feel about my Volt. I wish everyone drove an electric vehicle. We took our Volt on a 9,500 mile road trip from California to Florida and back."
Ally J. in Bakersfield, CA drives a Fiat 500e: "I love my Fiat 500e"
