My name is Noel Adams and I run the evfinder.com web site among other things. I also write the occasional article for Electrifying Times and EV World. I am British but have lived in the Southern California area for over a quarter of a century. Before moving to the US I also spent four years working for an automobile manufacturer in the middle east.
I developed an interest in Electric Vehicles back around 1990 and my interest became an obsession when I tried unsuccessfully to lease a GM EV1. I realized that it was really difficult for people to even find information about electric vehicles, and finding an actual car was all but impossible. I decided to do something about it and started EVFinder.com. Now the evfinder web site gets about 60,000 hits per month and I have helped hundreds of people to find an electric car. Still, as Rodney Dangerfield says, "I get no respect". It gets frustrating at times to get totally ignored by a company like Tesla Motors. At times I feel like giving up then I get a dealer who tells me that their business depends on referrals from my site and it all seems worth while again.
The following page will contain my own thoughts on a variety of topics related to electric vehicles and will also allow me to stray off topic a bit and look at other issues such as hybrid vehicles, and issues surrounding air pollution and oil addiction, which are the reasons I got interested in Electric Vehicles in the first place.

Sunday Jun 4, 2017 – May 2017 EV Sales – Another month, another sales record. May 2017 was the best May on record for EV sales. The last time that EV sales have not set a record month was in May 2016 which fell just 173 cars short of May 2015. Overall an estimated 16,568 plug-in cars were sold in May, well ahead of the previous record set in May 2015 which saw estimated sales of 11,540 cars. This is partly due to having more choices in more locations than ever before...Continued
Sunday May 28, 2017 – Climatology – Let me start by saying that I am not a climate scientist although I do have a background in science and engineering, but since there is much confusion about Climatology, I thought that I would take a shot at removing some of the confusion on this subject...Continued
