Plug In America will host West Coast Inauguration parade with 30+ EVs - AutoblogGreen
I'm going. Will you be there Dave?
Take some good photos for us. :smile:
Tempting to fly down to LA just for this. But then my carbon emissions (from flying) would ruin their low carbon statement!
Just got a work-related conflict. Will have to miss the festivities this time.
Unfortunately not - I'll be relying on some of you guys to report back. If I went, I think my carbon emissions would make TEG's look like a drop in the ocean!

40 in one place! That is impressive considering the number left in private hands.
How many are there in private hands? I thought they made something like 600 RAV EVs.
I think there are something like 300 in private hands. A power company in California owns like 150, I think.
You would also have to imagine that the numbers keep dwindling due to accidents and such. Even though they seem supremely reliable there must be some lost to extreme mechanical failure as well. Getting service for them is probably harder and harder.
