Know More EV
EV is abbreviated from electric vehicle. These are cars that run solely on electricity.

Products That Will Modernize Your Car Like You Won't Believe
Ladies and gentlemen, I drive a 10-year-old car. I love my car—I really do. It's a beautiful car. However, it's 10 years old. This means that, whether I love it or not, it's lacking amenities that would make it much better, and much more suited to modern life.
Must Have Items for Any Roadside Emergency
I know most drivers are like me, you say you'll make a list of items for any roadside emergency to have in your car and never get around to getting them. It's okay, we all do it, there's no shame in admitting it. I was recently in a little fender bender, my first accident, and the front end of my car was slightly banged up.

I wanted to take a moment and recognize Peppa’s contribution to our eventful travels by recapping five of the more memorable drives of 2017.
The Harm of Gender Roles in Car Culture
“The masculine dominance of car culture is sustained even though an increasing number of women drive and work as car journalists” (Wollen and Kerr, 363). In her article “Men, Motors, Markets, and Women,” Grace Lees-Maffei uses the previous statement to describe the ways in which women are more and more so getting involved in car culture, yet the culture itself is leaving them at the fringes. As of 2012, males represented less than 50 percent of drivers on the road, leaving the majority of driver’s license-carrying individuals to be women (DeGroat).
