Electric Auto Silicon Valley Meeting

Electric Association Silicon Valley – Hewlett Packard Campus, Cupertino – July 2012 Meeting featuring Via Motors and Local Motion.

Electric Auto Association – Silicon Valley welcomed Local Motion’s  Clement Gires and Via Motor’s David West to speak at our July meeting hosted by Hewlett Packard in Cupertino.  Extra thanks to PG&E for lending out their V-TRUX for the day.

What is not pictured is the parking lot full of Electric Vehicles. Attending today’s meeting were Nissan LEAFs, BMW ActiveE, CODA, Toyota RAVs, Tesla Roadsters, Think!, Chevy Volt, conversions and of course a Sparrow that can roll right into the building – zero emissions.

For the creative charging enthusiasts – yes, that was Mike Thompson using a Via Motors V-TRUX to charge his Nissan LEAF taking advantage of the 240 “Power Export” feature.  For added reality – the blade was not removed from the skill saw for the power tool demo.

Watch for Local Motion on a corporate campus near you soon.  These guys are on to something very cool.
