The new year is here, and you may have a list of New Year's resolutions you're going to start working on.
If you're concerned about climate change and global warming, one of the things that may be on your list of New Year's resolutions is acquiring an electric vehicle. It may be a car, an SUV, a pickup truck, or a new delivery vehicle for one or more of your businesses.
If an electric vehicle, or an EV as they're now being called, is high up on your list, you may want to check out our series of posts entitled the Electric Vehicle Revolution.
In this series of posts, we look at electric vehicle hazards, things you need to know about driving around with electric vehicles, and perhaps most interestingly we take a look at what kids should know about electric vehicles and finally, things to consider in an electric vehicle purchase.
The electric vehicle is going to literally revolutionize are driving, bicycle riding, and walking going forward. The way we approach the world of vehicle traffic will change primarily because of one unique electric vehicle characteristic. And that characteristic is simply silence.
Virtually all of us have spent our entire lives with both a visual and an audible sense of vehicular traffic. As the number of electrically powered vehicles on our streets, highways and interstates grow, we will be able to depend less and less on our audible senses for a perception of what is occurring around us. That one characteristic will affect all of those around us when we drive or are around an electric vehicle.
There is little doubt that the electric vehicle will revolutionize how we drive and how we commute. But the immediate question is. How do we coexist with the fossil fuel powered vehicle and the electrically powered vehicle on our roads, streets and highways?
Join me beginning with the new year in a review of our four post series entitled The Electric Vehicle Revolution: Buying, Driving, And Living With Electric Vehicles.
These posts could save you a lot of money, a lot of grief and perhaps a lot of heartbreak.
