Who uses the electric car?


The 2006 movie called Who Killed the Electric Car? answered that question by saying that … well, rent or buy the movie to see how it answers that question. But electric cars are beginning to make a comeback in this era of sustainability, and at San Diego International Airport they form an important part of the airport’s vehicle fleet.

In honor of Earth Day (which takes place next week on April 22), the Airport Authority will present all-electric vehicles used at the airport at a special event for the media and Airport Authority employees taking place tomorrow, Friday, April 17.

The event will feature six all-electric vehicles used by various departments at the airport, including five Global Electric Motorcars (GEMs), pictured above, and a Ford Think Neighbor vehicle, pictured here.think5

Please note: Only airport employees and the media are invited to this event, as there is not enough room at the event location for general public viewing.

The vehicles feature a top speed of 25 mph, zero pollution, maintenance-free batteries and are charged overnight at simple household-style 110-volt outlets.

Airport Authority employees should refer to the email sent out about the event for additional details, specific times and the best viewing locations. Media interested in covering the event should click here.

The electric vehicles pictured above may be diminutive, but they represent a big sign of the Airport Authority’s significant commitment to sustainability.  You can have a look here at other sustainability initiatives under way by the Airport Authority at San Diego International Airport.

So here’s to an early Happy Earth Day! to all Ambassablog readers.
