ElectrAA Videos

It's often far easier to watch and listen than to read. To answer all the questions we are asked first when we talk to people about electric cars, we have made this series of short videos.  Sheila asks the questions and Jim of the Electric Automobile Association answers them.

These videos won't tell you everything of course, but together they make a good introduction to the subject of Electric Vehicles - EVs.  If you have a question that is not answered here, drop us a note from this page.  Who knows - we may even make another video to answer your question!
