What are some of your go to reasons you share with people to help encourage them to buy electric cars?
I usually talk about the positives of saving money and also avoiding the negatives of crazy amounts of local pollution (Particulate matter, Volatile Organic Compounds, Nitrogen oxides, Sulfur dioxide, Carbon monoxide, oil and junk dripping on the ground, other stuff probably).
The amount of pollution around us we have been taught to accept as being ok is just staggering.
I would love to be able to better encourage people to buy electric cars. With ones like the '18 and '19 Leaf having such a great range and a more mass appeal design (and lots of others) it is getting easier to tempt people. Some people don't want to because they are uncomfortable with unfamiliar things but just talking about it a lot helps with that (advertising works ).
I would like to have a good elevator pitch when talking to people. Every person I could get to switch a car in my neighborhood would mean that much cleaner air and roads for my daughter (not to even mention global warming).
