Tell me what you love about your electric car.

I'm a newspaper reporter with GateHouse Media on a tight deadline. I am looking for a quick quote today from an owner of an electric car about why they bought it, what they love about it.

If possible, please email me at [email protected].

Please include your name and car make and model, city where you live if possible?

Tell me what you love about your electric car:

1) I pay about 50 cents on the dollar compared to gasoline when I'm driving on the battery.

2) It's very quiet.

3) Use 1 & 2 the next time you have a "tight deadline".

Not stopping at gas stations every week or so. I have a Volt that hasn't seen a gas pump since Feb 28 and my wife's Clarity PHEV hasn't seen one since June 17th. When I got my Volt I realized after about a month how liberating it is to not have to stop for gas in my daily life.

The roughly $1,000 a year I save in operating costs is nice as well.

Funny she posted her query on a very SLOW site, when she could have posted on the Inside EVS Forum which has far more activity.

Or virtually anywhere else for that matter, she could've posted this question in at least a dozen different forums.

I searched her name when I posted my first post, I didn't find much.

Here's her public LinkedIn profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/melissa-erickson-17493011/ She's apparently been there for nearly 30 years.
