AddPlug In America expects 250,000 EVs will be sold by September

Milestone Could Hit During National Drive Electric Week

The group of electric vehicle supporters known as Plug In America (PIA) figures that a grand total of 220,494 plug-in vehicles have been purchased in the US since the modern wave of EVs went on sale in late 2010. Just over a year ago, PIA celebrated the 100,000th EV sold in the US, a Mitsubishi i-MiEV. Based on current sales patterns, the next milestone should be reached right around the time of PIA's next big party.

AddEVTV Electric Vehicle Conversion Convention to feature Chris Paine, racing

Cape Girardeau is generally thought of – when it's thought of at all – as a modest Missouri town on a slow bend in the Mississippi river.

AddDriving Sustainability: Chris Paine checks in via Skype, shows off "Revenge" clip

AddFrom Funerals to Births: Revenge film crew on hand for Chevy Volt production

Early in 2006, director Chris Paine first screened his film Who Killed the Electric Car at the Sundance Film Festival and turned the media spotlight on General Motors and its decision to scrap the EV1 electric car.
