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 July 9, 2017 – June 2017 EV Sales – Another month, another sales record. June 2017 was the best June 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 17,182 plug-in cars were sold in June, well ahead of the previous record set in June 2016 which saw estimated sales of 14,863 cars...Continued
Sunday Jul 2, 2017 – Cordless Charging – I just read an interesting article on EV World called "Cutting the Chord: How & Why Wireless Charging is the Future" by Grant Covic. This article presents some compelling arguments for why cordless charging will replace the current method of charging by cord. I think that this is highly likely but not for the reasons specified in the article...Continued
Sunday Jun 25, 2017 – Going Green on Campus – Back in early April, Chrissy from Let's Go Solar sent me a link to an interesting article by Toren Elste called "Going Green on Campus". While the article didn't seem a good fit for my links pages it did have lots of interesting tips for living a more sustainable life. I always thought it would make a good subject for one of my blogs and I finally got some time to actually write about it...Contiued
