Good news from Sierra Club on EV sales

 We hope you, too, are looking at EV's and hybrids.  If not, why not?


Drive Electric

Have you heard the good news the electric car sales soared 80% comparing December 2015 to December 2016 and 37% comparing 2015 to 2016 overall? I invite you to read our recent blog article in Huffington Post and Sierra Club Compass looking backward and forward on some of the most important EV sales trends. 

Also, I invite you to read our Compass blog article about recommendations Sierra Club and several other groups have put together in a letter we're sending to Volkswagen today on how to spend the $2 billion portion of its emissions cheating settlement funds to be administered by the company itself. Speaking of emissions cheating, you've probably heard the bad news that yet another company, Fiat this time, has been accused by the EPA of duping customers by lying that their cars are much cleaner than they are -and meanwhile polluting our air and climate. A press statement by Sierra Club's Executive Director Michael Brune is here, and some good coverage of this latest scandal is here

Cheers,

Gina
