I remember in the late 90's hearing about Saturn's EV-1 100% electric car. You could only get one in a couple of states and you couldn't buy it. They were all leased. Then they had the leasors return the cars and GM crushed the cars in the desert. I thought that was the end of the story until I read Two Cents Per Mile. According to the book many of the Toyota RAV 4 100% electric SUVs are still on the road today. They were sold to a lucky few who haven't bought liquid fuel for their SUVs in over a decade! I am so jealous. Two Cents Per Mile traces the history of a collusion between oil companies and auto manufacturers that will truly get your blood boiling. For those of us who follow the electric car industry, we see the promotion of hybrids and the use of the lithium ion battery as the new solution. Chevron surrounded the NiMH (nickel hydride metal traction battery used in the Toyota RAV 4 EV) with so many patents that they can not be used to mass produce 100% electric cars. It is an outrage. The book is written by an electrical engineer and offers practical solutions to get us back on track for use of the NiMH technology, a technology far superior to the lithium ion battery.

Nevres Sefo connects all the dots in documenting the history behind one of the best-built cars of all time, the all-electric Toyota RAV4 EV. Proving once again that truth is stranger than fiction, this book shines a light on a car that goes over 100 miles on a charge and does it faster, better, and cheaper than it's internal-combustion-powered counterpart.

Nearly 1,400 of these marvels were put on the roads in California between 1998 and 2003. Hundreds were saved from the crusher due to the grassroots efforts of Plug In America (formerly [...]). These cars continue to serve their owners daily with quiet, inexpensive, and reliable electric drive. Many have over 100k miles on their odometers, still powered by the original NiMH battery packs described in Sefo's book.

To anyone who thinks that electric cars have too many limitations, and that the batteries aren't ready, you need to read this book and get your facts straight! Bravo for a book that's timely, well-researched, and easy to read.

Get it, read it, tell everybody you know.

The auto industry and the gov't are likely colluding to keep technology out of our hands that would save us money, clean up the environment, and get us off of foreign oil. All without wars in the Middle East.

They don't want to supply us with this tech and are actively working against someone else bringing us this tech because EVs would ruin a good cash cow for the oil and auto manufacturers.

Long term I guess what will happen is some import company will beat Detroit to it and once again the home team will be behind the curve.

EVs work NOW. The modern tech has existed for 15 years, the basic tech for over 100 years. The battery that the automakers keep saying they are waiting for exists with the large capacity NiMH batteries that Chevron and GM colluded to hide and lock away with patent encumbrance.

If there was ever a time to understand how the ruling class of this country and big business - especially big oil - controls our gov't and by extension the world - the time is now. The evidence is everywhere and right in front of us.

The Internet can show you and connect you to the people in the know. Just like advertising buries the smaller companies/brands who can't advertise as frequently as the big guys - the people in the know will not likely get any airtime or article space in the mainstream media which I feel certain is used to shape conversation and pace our society's knowledge about the world. It's a tool of large companies to distract us and tell us only what suits them to some end that makes a certain group of people rich. The most valuable information is not given away. What we get for free is old information or incomplete. Sounds a little Orwellian doesn't it?

Two Cents Per Mile by Nevres Cefo

Will President Obama Make it Happen with the Stroke of a Pen?

According to Two Cents Per Mile author Nevres Cefo, Americans have been led to believe that they can't make a significant difference in much of anything once corporate and governmental interests are involved. Big oil and big automakers have historically counted on the false belief that we as American citizens cannot impact our transportation future. Cefo sets out to inspire resistance to that notion of helplessness. He intends to make electric vehicle (EV) advocates of us all and largely succeeds.

Over 250 million vehicles-- mostly powered by the almighty, polluting, costly internal combustion engine-- ply American highways today. Two Cents Per Mile is an informative, spell-binding read that helps the reader understand that there is, in fact, a better way to power our personal transportation needs. Using Toyota's all-electric RAV4 EV as the book's prime example, Cefo declares: "This car not only exists, but also has been on the road for ten years and is exceeding performance expectations."

Cefo firmly believes that our transportation future resides on the electric highway; not the hydrogen highway and carefully backs that belief up with well-researched facts and figures. As oil becomes more scarce and the price of a gallon of gas continues to rise, an electrified future does seem plausible. But that future will only happen if, as President Obama states: ". . . the American people demand it --because they rise up and insist on new ideas and new leadership." Hopefully, Two Cents Per Mile will inspire Americans to rise up, dump the pump and plug into a much better automotive future.
