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 October 1, 2017 – Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV US bound – Back in 2012 Mitsubishi showed their Outlander PHEV at the LA Auto show and said it would be available as a 2013 model year car. For many reasons the this launch date kept getting pushed back and while the Outlander PHEV became the best selling plug-in hybrid in Europe it was never made available in the US.
