Electric Cars ARE for Girls!


I love this new site, Electric Cars Are for Girls. Since women buy the majority of cars in this country AND make up the bulk of people who consider themselves environmentalists, it makes perfect sense to get women on the electric car bandwagon. Lynne Mason, who runs the site, knows a thing or two about electric vehicles (we’re talking all-electric, not just hybrids like the Prius). She fills us non-gearheads in on exactly what kinds of mods need to be made to get a car to run on a battery, tells us why electrics rule, and gives us a really good reminder as to why we would want to bother with such a project. There’s also an interesting page on the history of electric cars.

If you do nothing else useful today, visit Lynne’s site, then pass it on to the favorite ladies in your life; it’s informative, fun and inspirational.
