The Renew America Roadtrip™ (RAR) flies in the face of the "impractical" sticker that has for some long been illegitimately slapped onto the electric car. By driving across the United States in an unmodified PRODUCTION electric vehicle, the RAR team will in a very tangible, visible, and undeniable way address the myths and propaganda that have been used to "Kill the Electric Car" in the past; namely range and charging facilities.The RAR team will make plenty of stops along the way to take part in different awareness raising events including today's visit with the West Philly Hybrid X extreme team. You can check out their website for the total list and if they happen to be passing through your area in the next couple weeks, feel free to meet up with them. As with many endeavors undertaken today, you can be their friend on Facebook, follow them on Twitter and check out their videos on YouTube. Speaking of video, hit the jump to watch two of the project's co-founders, Michael and Maddy, first meet up with Roadster #245.
