If you’re an EV owner, the chances are you’re used to the kind of inane questions you hear from work colleagues, family members or perhaps even random people passing by about driving electric. You know the sort. “Why can’t you connect the rear wheels to a motor to recharge the battery while you’re going along? Why can’t I put windmills on the front? What happens if you run out of power?”
It’s likely your response to these kind of questions depends on how busy you are at the time — and perhaps how many times you’ve been asked the same question today — but as GreenCarReports explains, a Kickstarter project founded by Tesla Employee Ayumi Kim and her illiustrator friend Sarah W-R promises to come to your rescue.
Called An Unpretentious Guide and Coloring Book to Electric Vehicles, the $15 book promises to answer the kind of EV questions that many folks are too scared to ask in a fun and informative way.
In addition to all the usual questions about range, charging and performance, the book also asks the slightly unusual yet real-life questions Ayumi Kim says she’s been asked by people in her day job.
Among these include “Can I plug my chainsaw into the cigarette lighter?” and “What do I do if I hit a wombat?,” along with the age old “Can I plug my car into itself to charge?”
We’re not sure quite how seriously the book should be taken — but for just $15 you can help the duo make the book a reality and get a neat coloring book to share with your friends, family, and children.
We think that’s pretty neat on its own. Don’t you?
