Ford Focus Electric

During the electric vehicle (EV) hangout I was on last week, one of the participants asked about information on currently available EVs. Of course, I was happy to be able to send him over to our “EV Facts” page. However, that page isn’t jam-packed with info, and it was in  need of a little updating*. So, the participant, Jeffrey Rust, had an idea: why not create a spreadsheet of info on current EVs, and then open it up to public editing (i.e. continually crowdsource the latest info on production EVs).

Sounded like a great idea. Jeffrey got a spreadsheet started and input the info from our EV Facts page, along with a bit of extra info and topics. I then spent almost all of last night and much of this morning updating information that was a bit out of date and adding several cars (and the info related to them).

The “EVs & PHEVs” spreadsheet is now open for editing, and it still has a few gaps to fill, so Jeffrey and I would be more than happy if you had a look and added any (reliable!) info you have. Just click that link above.

*I just moments ago extensively updated the EV Facts page.

    Thanks for initiating this effort. Great work.

    Hate to say it – but the L, M, N and O columns don’t update with the sorting and searching function… and someone sorted in a way that they are all off now. Was going to try to fix it, but it’ll get worse before it gets better and I can’t fix it all currently. Will check back later.

    Great idea though. Hope you can keep it working straight!

      Thanks for the catch! Fixed it.

        Also might be good to separate model year from model to make that more sort-able.

        Other than that it looks awesome! Look forward to watching this!

        • http://zacharyshahan.com/ Zachary Shahan

          yeah, good call.

          a lot of room for improvement, but have to start somewhere. :D

            Lookin good! And exactly! That’s the point of crowdsourcing. It’ll take a while, but it’ll just keep getting better and more complete! Hopefully you’ve saved a file that we can’t touch? Just in case someone malicious comes just to cause trouble?

            Clean energy tech can become sort of a target for that kind of behavior… unfortunately…

          • http://zacharyshahan.com/ Zachary Shahan

            yeah, i’ve got an original. will just have to remember to update it once in awhile.

            and the good thing about google spreadsheets is that you can check all previous revisions / versions of the spreadsheet and revert back to any of them. that’s how i saved the mess that started from the columns not all being linked. :D

  • mk1313

    I don’t have the info but might you add in any known rebates and where they apply to?

  • jonesey jonesey

    Or you could read and contribute to the WIkipedia page, which has a much broader reach and is already more complete.

      unless i’m missing something, you can’t sort and play with the contents of the Wikipedia page like you can with a spreadsheet.
