Are You an Electric Vehicle (EV) Owner or Interested to Learn More About EVs?

Electric vehicle (EV) sales are booming in the U.S., with purchases nearly doubling from over a year ago, according to ClimateWire, with electric vehicles accounting for about two percent of all car sales. A BloombergNEF study reveals that the global electric vehicle market size and adoption will grow in the long run. The report shows that electric vehicles currently make up only three percent of car sales worldwide. By 2025, electric vehicles will reach 10 percent of global passenger vehicle sales, growing to 28 percent in 2030 and 58 percent by 2040. In May 2021, Ford unveiled the new F-150 Lighting, and since then, Ford has received more than 130,000 reservations.

Throughout our SaddleBrooke community, it is not uncommon to see an electric vehicle on any given day. The decision to purchase such a vehicle can bring many questions to first-time owners. Even experienced owners of electric vehicles continue to look for helpful information about their vehicles, charging infrastructure, as well as people to share their experiences with.

On Dec. 11, 2021, an event took place at the MountainView Clubhouse parking lot for Tesla EV owners to share each other’s experiences with their EVs and have social time together.

The success of this event prompted a group of SaddleBrooke residents to meet and discuss ways to create a community of EV owners to:

* Encourage fellowship, education, and social contact among electric vehicle owners, enthusiasts, and prospective new EV owners.

* Inspire and enhance the experience, ownership, operations, and preservation of electric vehicles.

* Promote, develop, and arrange meetings and events for instruction and enjoyment.

We would like to know if you are interested in participating in EV-related local events and/or an EV SaddleBrooke club. Whether you own or just want to learn more about EVs, please join us at the MountainView parking lot on Friday, April 15, from 2 to 4 p.m., or just email us at [email protected] to express your interest.
