Video: Revenge of the Electric Car

Alright, this video is almost a year old. I haven’t seen it yet, but the trailer sparked my interest.

Over the coming years, San Diegans will start to see a lot more electric vehicles (EVs) on our streets. Thanks to the efforts of our community and industry leaders, San Diego is one of a small handful of cities leading the nation in EV integration. Thanks to the relative cleanliness of our current state-level electricity generation mix, EV “tailpipe emissions”  (i.e. the emissions from generating the electricity to power these vehicles) in CA are relatively low. As we scale up solar in our state, truly zero-emission EVs will be made possible once solar goes “directly” into EV batteries. Keep an eye on local leaders, such as UCSD, to provide us with stellar examples in the not-so-distant future.
