I came around the corner to find my wife just exiting the bar where she works, ready to hop into the cool confines of the Kia Soul EV. I had found that using the air conditioning cost me between 2 and 5 miles from my estimated range calculator, but by driving into Hartford using city […]
Originally posted on EV Obsession When it comes to BBQ and steak, Kansas City, Missouri is a destination for many Americans.

A month ago, I took delivery of a 2013 Zero FX. My first impressions are here. It’s been a wonderful month, even as I’ve had to work hard to keep The Smug from blinding everyone around me. Well, putting in an 80-mile day on Sunday was a great way to temper The Smug. If you aren’t familiar with The Smug, please take a moment and familiarize yourself here in South Park. Granted, that episode aired way back in 2006 when lowly hybrid drivers could think they were cool. Not so anymore, now that pure EV’s are becoming almost as ubiquitous, and Tesla is profitable.
The Society of Automotive Engineers, or SAE, has taken its sweet time settling on a new fast charging standard for American and European automakers.
