The OEVA is all about our members sharing from their experience. In these stories some of our members with EV's of different makes and models. They share how they use and charge them, what they love (and maybe what they don't like so much) about their particular models, and the sort of person they would recommend consider their type of car. Our members also share their EV travel adventures, their projects restoring EVs, and converting gas cars to electric drive.
If I have a question about owning an EV I'm not familiar with, Peter is the first guy I would ask as he has probably owned one. Ask him anything about the Prius vs. Bolt vs. Leaf vs. Model 3 vs. Polestar2 vs. ID.4 vs. Volt. His extensive experience serves us all through his leadership of the Ask@oeva.org program. Read Peter's EV story.
EV's have come a long way in 26 years. But when you can get an EV for free, and you like to tinker, well, that's not a deal you can pass up. Read Tony Foley's delightful adventure bringing back to life and driving a Solectria Force (a professionally EV converted Geo Metro).
Gasoline costs are going up and up, what to do? Maybe leasing an EV is the solution. Though forced into an EV by high gas prices, the sprightly little BMW i3 stole Tony's heart, and his wife's heart too. But what do you do when you get a bit too daring with that 80 mile range and run out of juice a mile from home? Tony's electrical ingenuity comes into play.
