Electric Revs is about the multiple electric revolutions replacing ancient fossil fuels with renewable and nearly carbon-free energy for transportation.
Jeff Nisewanger is a part-time freelance journalist and editor of this site. He has an interest in all things electrical including vehicle hybridization, battery technology, and DC fast charging. Coming from an engineering background, he likes to deep-dive on the details of emerging automotive tech.
He first learned to drive at age 13 on his grandfather’s farm in a 1946 Chevrolet pickup truck that came with a starter button on the floor and a manual carburetor choke pull on the dash.
The GM EV-1 caught his interest in the late 1990’s but he settled for one of the first Toyota Prius full hybrid subcompact sedans in 2000. That was followed up with one of the first “iconic” Prius liftbacks in the fall of 2003. In December, 2010 the 42nd Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid off the assembly line became his daily driver. In January, 2017 the Volt was finally replaced by an all-electric Chevy Bolt EV built during the first two weeks of production.
