EV Community – My People, As Christmas approaches and we, start to join, where we can, together to celebrate a wonderful year of hell and back.
Some of us will celebrate alone due to COVID but we are connected through the world of technology. Those of us who are able to catch up with family will celebrate hopefully will love to see each other again after such a long time.
This year the Electric Vehicle (EV) community evolved in their own right.
At the beginning of 2020 a number of Youtubers and bloggers wrote and vlogged about the year ahead.
No one would have predicted what was to come.
However, we had a wake up and a reality check that allowed us to become more focused on the mission ahead.
COVID focused us on the betterment of our environment due to the lock downs and the ability to see the clear air around the cities.
The community resolved to make sure that others also understood that this clear air could be achieved with the Electric vehicle being introduced.
We love Electric vehicles for a number of reasons
- They are cool
- In most cases they are S3XY
- Mostly quiet
- Invariably fast
- They have incredible technology
- Above all others, they can help to improve our environment.
As a community we talked about the share price of Tesla and the amazing things that Rivian is planning.
Sharing stories of Nikola and its many issues, smoke and mirrors.
Wanting to understand the cybertruck and its functionality, size and where it would be street legal.
Watching in awe of the Full Self Driving Beta(FSD) and the amazing videos the EV community published. Our excitement and desire for this to be ours became more impassioned.
Hard times, Bright Times
Of course, there are tough times and bright times and with all things we stuck together.
We helped out when someone was down, we shared pain and hurt when COVID took a family, friend or colleague from us.
It has been a tough year to understand and to see the possibilities.
The EV community has been a comfort for us, to escape our lives and delve into the possibilities of what the future we all want to see could be.
It is time to be thankful for those that offered kind words, who shared thoughts and gave us reason to think outside of the box.
I am grateful to the community this year. I have interacted with people from Canada, New Zealand, USA, Australia and beyond.
All of these people have been focused on one thing. How can we make the world better than we left it?
- Some said it with words and others said it with actions.
- Some showed it with images and others showed it with their purchases.
- Some helped others to find the path and others shared their thoughts to influence the doubters.
All told it has been a year where the EV community has come together to support each other and share their lives with those who have a passion for all thing’s Electric vehicles.
The EV community is more than any other group of people that I know.
They all in their own unique way brings experience from many and varied back grounds.
They are full of enthusiasm and passion.
They have an infectiousness that is stronger than any disease.
The EV community is the nerd in all of us that is now cool.
They are my people.
Thanks for being there this year.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
