Feature film Director, Jonathan Becker is putting EVs and sustainability front and center in an epic way:

“This isn’t an ordinary documentary, it’s an “Adventu-mentary.”

InsideEVs caught up with Jonathan Becker to discover what initially charged this idea.

Jonathan Becker:

“While filming the Zero Emissions & Drive Electric Tours a few years ago; I had a conversation with a person whose dream was to travel across the country on her electric scooter to spread EV awareness and set a Guinness World Record. Her vision was to ride from her hometown of Charleston, SC and end her journey on Google’s front lawn. As she began to speak of her plans, other conscious minded individuals stepped forward to take this EV journey with her.”

“Fast forward to early Summer 2013, they called me out of the blue. It was an incredible opportunity, after all they’ve had 3 years to plan and research this, right? The group now consisted of 8 strangers from various countries, prepared to ride a variety of electrically powered vehicles ranging from bikes to cars.

Jonathan Becker:

“With one week notice, a 3 man film crew, no budget, no plan, and a list of 44 cities. I said “Oh man this will be quite the ride.”

    I see they’ve found how to make electric scooters sexy… 😉

    But seriously, where can you see it at?

    1. Kosh says:

      Doh… NEVERMIND

  3. Anon says:

    Should be more entertaining than watching the painfully slow documentary “10 MPH”, where a couple guys with Segways went across the US…

  4. Gaswipes Not Allowed says:

    This sounds AWESOME! Can’t wait to see it!

  5. Cathy says:

    I saw them when they stopped in Columbia, SC on the first night of the trip.

  6. Paula Russell says:

    I’m all for energy conservation through the use of electric vehicles. However, where are the helmets on the electric bicyclists? These folks are not setting a good example while encouraging a good conservation measure! Please encourage all riders to wear helmets and prevent head injuries and death.

    Looks great, can’t wait to see it.
