Car Slut Confessions: In Search Of eHarmony

These days, driving an electric car is kind of like losing your virginity.  You know it’s gotta happen some day, but you sure as well don’t want to be the first one, or the last one, to do it.  But given that this is now officially my profession, I figure I’ve got to quit it with my condescending stubborn stares and pop my electric cherry once and for all. So I give you eWeek.

This week, I’ll let my ridiculously fast, gas guzzling, yet endlessly entertaining BMW X5m drip oil in my garage while I drive a VW eGolf for 7 days. During this time, I’ll do my best give you guys a blow-by-blow (oh, the sex jokes) on what it’s really like to go electric. So whether it’s a video or a blog entry, I’ll give you a little somethin’ (yup, they just keep comin’) every day so you don’t miss a thing.

To prepare, I’ve done the following:

*managed my looming range anxiety by performing a variety of exercises in case I need to run home:

*said goodbye to my buddy Birat at Chevron, so he doesn’t panic when I don’t appear for a few days:

*downloaded an EV charging app in case of a recharging crisis away from home:

Ok, so the next time you see me, I’ll be a real eWoman.

Brace yourself,

Mama

    I mentioned, to the astonishment of my wife, that I think I should look into a electric car. It would be perfect companion to my Large Cargo Van for my photo work, my 62 VW with a “little” more HP than it should have. She asked what E car would you get and I said, “E Golf”. So I am all ears. Can’t wait to know the thoughts of a true car person instead of someone who can;t stop saying GREEN, blah blah blah…
