PODCAST 116: Are We There Yet?
November 19, 2013 Leave a comment
There are now several models of AFVs available on the market and we cover an article on CleanTechnica that has a good listing of many of these vehicles. We also looked at news from International Business Times talking about how there are 8,000 pre-orders for the new BMW electric car. Recent statistics on an infographic and news piece from the Union of Concerned Scientists back up the claims that sales for alt fuel vehicles are rising, with “potential for much more.” Stay tuned to the end where Mike and Alex pick their favorites.
With all these new cars coming out and many more predicted for the future, student programs to train autoworkers of the future would be in more demand than ever. At Electric Auto Shop we applaud the efforts to these manufacturers and make it our job to educate their future workers. Green technologies have a big future along with conservation and fuel efficiency, so working on AFVs prepares students for these new opportunities. And, nothing gets high school and college kids more excited about math and science than working on cars.
