Owning an Electric Car is the essential book for anyone who is interested in owning an electric car and who wants to know more about them. The book has been written with input from hundreds of people from all around the world: interviews and surveys with owners of electric cars about their experiences - both good and bad, meetings with vehicle manufacturers and discussions with politicians, environmental campaigners and electricity providers have all contributed make this book an essential guide to help you make an informed choice about electric cars.
My name is Michael Boxwell. I have been writing about technology, motoring and the environment for many years with articles being published in newspapers, magazines and online.
I wrote my first book in 2003 (The Proof of Delivery Buyer's Guide - now in its seventh edition) and have since followed that up with the Solar Electricity Handbook (first published in 2009 and now in its 4th edition) and The Electric Car Guide series of books.
When I'm not writing, I am a technical architect and designer. Formerly, I was a managing director of an electric vehicle supplier in the UK. I also run the Reva Electric Car owners club, one of the largest electric car owners clubs in the world with around 1,100 members worldwide.
I am currently working on a number of new eco books, a TV series and a children's book of stories. I am a regular guest on the Transport Evolved (www.TransportEvolved.com) and on This Week In Energy (www.ThisWeekInEnergy.tv), both produced by Little Collie Productions.
I live in Warwickshire in the United Kingdom. I am married with two children.
