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.

Diesel trucks are the mainstay of cargo handling and so alternatives have to be found...Continued

Sunday Sep 9, 2018 – Tesla Killers – It will come as no surprise that some people have been trying to manipulate the media to try and bring down Tesla. There have been several articles lately that provide insight into the way that news is being manipulated, especially through social media, to spread bad news about a company that is providing the US with both technological leadership and employing a large number of US workers. One of the latest moves is to dub some of the new range of electric cars coming out as "Tesla Killers"...Continued
Sunday September 2, 2018 – Grid Energy Storage – I was reading some articles about global warming and came across an article in The Verge about the issues that are being faced at San Onofre nuclear power plant here in Southern California. I often see articles about how nuclear power is the only way to provide enough energy to provide for the world's needs without burning fossil fuels, usually written by someone in the nuclear power generation business...Continued
Sunday August 26, 2018 – Why Are EVs Not Being Mass Produced? – Yesterday on Twitter I saw a post from Paul Scott with a link to his answer on Quora to the question "We already have the technology but why are electric vehicles being mass produced?". That's a good question...Continued
