Found: Electric Car Insider magazine!

Electric Car Insider, a publication crowd funded to get it into 1000 North American newsstands this year, of which, the first 2015 issue has been available since sometime in February. I ordered a subscription a couple weeks ago, but, I couldn’t wait for the mail, so, I picked up my first issue at my local B&N bookstore last night, (available at other newsstands as well). This issue has an EV Buyer’s Guide, and more issues will be available quarterly. They cover plug-in vehicles, including BEVs and PHEVs (& EREVs), with articles on charging (EVSE) and other related subjects.

From their website: “Electric Car Insider is the definitive guide to plug in vehicles. We don’t review concepts or vaporware.  These are cars you can buy or reserve a position on now.”

Here are a couple pics from my copy, the cover page, From the Editor and Contents, (click on the pic, then click again to zoom in to larger version.) Each vehicle has a full page with high res. photos and specs. Retail $5.95 or yearly subscription $20.

  • How often do issues come out? Are they always the Buyers’ Guide format?
  •  Electric Car Insider We print quarterly. You’ll see more in-between content on the web this year. First quarter is buyers guide, other issues usually more in-depth reviews with buyers guide supplement pages (new mid year releases). Last year we had two buyers guides, one included used still for sale.

The EV Show, about EV conversion

Yes, I am promoting a business, it’s a small business, I have no hidden agenda, do not own part of the business, not associated with it, but, I do like performance cars and electric cars even more so, and that’s what they do.

EV West started an hour (or so) long show for people interested in converting a car to electric. EV West does conversions and also sells parts, chargers, and stuff you need for DIY EV conversion. Watching their videos you can learn a bit about electric car conversion or just follow their projects. I hope to one day have my car converted to electric, so, I enjoy this show, but, if you have any interest in electric cars, you may like this show.

The show is monthly, they refer to it as electric car info-tainment, and they will be adding a new show any day now (for March). For your convenience, below is posted the first three shows (they have improved the show each time).
