Back in May ElectricCar.com was sold for $180,000 at Sedo. The domain was brokered by Dave Evanson and owned by Namepros member @TeraDomain of QualityNames.com.

The new owner has a landing page up that states the website is currently not selling a product. So the purchase may very well be investment related.

The owner also lists other names he owns, they include:

EV.car
EVBattery.com
EVInsurance.com
EVLoans.com
RentalEV.com
EVprice.com
EVmodels.com

The owner of ElectricCars.com has a trademark on the term, something they make clear on their landing page. The trademark is for online magazine.

Forbes just came out with an article on why Electric Cars are not more popular in the U.S.

From the article:

A big factor is that Americans know little about EVs. A recent study from John Helveston of the Department of Engineering Management and Systems Engineering, George Washington University, and Laura Roberson offers some reasons and remedies for the low adoption rate of EVs.

“We…find that the vast majority of respondents were unable to correctly answer basic knowledge questions [about EVs],” according to the the study, “Electric vehicle adoption: can short experiences lead to big change?
