Further With Ford 2016- Disrupt Yourself

We’re honored to have been invited to cover this event again, as it’s delightful to peek behind the curtain, and be treated to such a lavish trip. The most exciting news from Ford is that they’re taking IDEO’s advice to prototype early and often. They’re launching a variety of projects (not vehicles) all aimed at making it easier for people to get from point A to B, regardless of who owns the vehicle, or even what type of vehicle it is.

Zero Celebrates Ten Years As Leading Electric Moto Manufacturer

On national drive electric day, September 10th, Zero motorcycles celebrated their 10th anniversary. We’ve been covering their progress since the beginning. In fact, my first article for gas2 was a review of the 2009 Zero S. They’ve certainly come a long way since I first reviewed one here, and I was very excited to celebrate with them.

Los Angeles Mayor Gets Serious About Public Transit

Last week, Move LA invited Mayor Eric Garcetti and many other esteemed guests to discuss the potential for Measure R2, the next step in funding (fixing) Los Angeles’ transportation woes. Measure R is a half percent sales tax approved in 2008, slated to bring in as much as $40 billion over 30 years. Since 2008, it has helped rapidly increase LA’s metro system.

Plug In Day 2013 | Los Angeles Plugs In At The Port

This year’s Plug-In Day celebration may not have had hunky models riding motorcycles, but there were a lot more EV owners present. 216 signed up, mostly LEAF owners. We took over a parking lot near the Catalina Express, with a lovely view of one of the cleanest and busiest shipping ports in the world.

Forget the Prius Effect- Here Comes The Matrix Effect

I was invited, at Ford’s expense, to attend their “Further With Ford” conference. We were treated to a delightful first-class event. However, let me preface this article with a caveat. I have always hated cars. My most recurring nightmare as a child was being chased by cars. My primary form of transportation is my electric motorcycle, because I value Freedom. The car comes in a distant 3rd, mainly reserved for road trips to the racetrack. If it weren’t for the money it makes on Relay Rides and Zimride, I’d probably sell it.
