A Message from Benjamin Jerew

Just like gasoline and diesel fuel replaced the horse, lithium-ion batteries and renewable energy are already replacing gasoline and diesel fuel. Interestingly, electric vehicles aren’t even a new idea. I've been researching and studying electric vehicle topics for about a decade and can't wait to explain to folks they could adapt to an EV with almost zero lifestyle changes.
