When you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression.

The Daily Show certainly do their homework.

I drive an EV – and it’s EZ (mostly)

The dashboard of my Chevrolet Bolt EV

So science indicates that global warming is causing climate to change. In the case of our Sierra Nevada mountains, for example, that’s not a good thing and rather an understatement these days. And as the Sierras go, so we go as it’s pretty much our only source of water, which we all agree we kinda need.

Welp. One solution to our growing instability caused by unsustainable emissions of CO2 into our atmosphere (like dumping garbage on your front lawn) is to not contribute to fossil fuel emissions – you know, the invisible carbon pollution from your gas-burning car.

How fast, how much and how far?

My 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, on a good day, can do 275 miles with some caveats such as wind, cold, rain (what’s rain, right?) but generally I can travel about 200 miles comfortably on a charge. So, for example, if I’m traveling to San Diego from Hanford, I could do it with around 2 stops for “juice” (and I have done it). Along the 99 & 5 corridors, I’d have access to about 100 or more fast-charging sites along the way, so it’s no sweat to pick your spot for a break, and plug in while your at it.

If you want to learn more about EV ownership, we can help by hitting the Contact button above. I’m not the only EV owner on the committee, so we are a pretty savvy group of folks who can help. My odo above now shows over 80,000 miles of trouble-free (mostly) usage and it’s actually fun to own & drive a good EV.

Trip plan display on the Bolt EV via Apple Car Play and the MyChevrolet app. Departed SFO, headed home via Gilroy DC fast charger at a Chevron station.
