We appreciate the words of encouragement from our friends and family in establishing a new spin on an old service. We hope to improve things for the citizens of the island as well as set an example for others to follow, which is why this blog exists. A diary of the creation of a business.
Our next step is fund raising to acquire the fleet. In 2015, there are more than a few options. However, our experience is limited in this regard. So, we prepare to chat with VCs, loan officers and campaign organizing sites. This means our fleet could be anywhere from 3 to 30 cars of varied models selected based upon quality, utility and features.
Anyone that wants to know more about EVs should be aware that all batteries are not alike in operation. This plays the biggest factor in selection. Liquid cooled versus air cooled systems. Carbon fiber body panels and proprietary dealer installed software updates. Which cars have gotten recalled? Is leaving the car constantly fully charged or near empty harmful or beneficial?
If you are interested in assistance for your own purchase, then we will answer these questions as well as guide you in further analysis of the right choice. Until the dealers on the island begin to offer electric options, we wish to accelerate the access of knowledge in bringing the island into the post oil paradigm. The stone age didn't end because they ran out of stones. They found something better.
