Current EV Information — Crowdsourced (Add Information If You’ve Got It!)

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 I then spent almost all of last night and much of this morning updating information that was a bit out of date and adding several cars (and the info related to them).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!

        • yeah, good call.

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

            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…

          • 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. 😀

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

    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.
