Nick is the only person in the world who can say he’s been on nearly every major press launch of every modern electric vehicle. He was one of the first to drive a pre-production Nissan LEAF in Japan, one of the first to drive a pre-production Volkswagen electric Golf in Germany, one of the first to drive a Tesla/Toyota RAV4 EV prototype, one of the first to drive the U.S.-spec Mitsu i in Japan, and one of the only Americans at the unveilings of the BMW i3 and i8 in Germany.
He was also the first individual on the planet to be given the chance to do a full battery range test of the Nissan LEAF—from the Nissan headquarters to the Jack Daniel’s Distillery and back.
As a passionate next generation car enthusiast he has written hundreds of posts for outlets such as The New York Times, Motor Trend, Scientific American, Popular Mechanics, AutoTrader.com, The Daily Green, HybridCars.com, and Gas 2.0.
Nick has also been syndicated in dozens of outlets including the Matter Network, AP, and Reuters. He is recognized widely as a leading thinker and influencer in the world of electric cars and has been an invited guest of many auto manufacturers at major events, an invited speaker at alt-car conferences, and a consultant to help governmental entities figure out how to develop plug-in infrastructure.
Nick currently resides in Central Washington where electricity is 3 cents per kWh and electric cars can be driven for a half a penny per mile on clean hydro power.
