A Message from Lindsay Martell

My family will be in the market for an EV when our trusty 2013 Honda Accord passes into the next automotive world. We have our eye on a Chevy Bolt, I like its crossover looks, utility, and spaciousness. Plus, it’s got a stellar, futuristic vibe. I currently drive a lovely Toyota RAV4, there will always be a special place in my heart for my grandmother’s late 60’s blush-silver Corvair.
