Erick Belmer, proud owner of the highest mileage Chevrolet Volt, posted a story that we think shows the connection that most electric car owners share.
We're all connected in this by our love for electric cars, right?
Here's Belmer story:
Helping fellow Volt owner with a flat.
In Warren, Ohio it's pothole boulevard and 4 vehicles had damaged tires from the pot holes. One was a Volt, so I had to help!
I have a full size spare and a floor jack in my Volt since I drive such a distance daily. He was very grateful! I smiled and told him, "We're Volt Owners! We're Family!"
Or, we're LEAF owners! We're family! Or, better yet, we're electric car owners. We're family!
There's a certain degree connection between electric car owners, even if total strangers to one another. Belmer's story captures this perfectly. Belmer continues:
"I travel a lot, so I have extra wheels and tires for both my Volt and my wife's Volt. I carry one with me in my travels as long as I don't have my daughter with me. I have Pirrelli runflat tires on my wife's Volt."
Travel a lot he does, racking up 220,000 miles on his Volt since taking ownership in March 2012. Belmer logs approximately 220 miles a day, with a single longest trip of 430 miles in one day.
We wonder, do you have a similar story where you assisted an electric car owner in need mostly because the car they drive is electric? Tell us your story in Comments below.
