Plug in: New class will offer electric alternatives

-A A +A
By Gabriel Vasquez

Thinking about removing gas expenses from your budget and plugging into a new future?

If you’re considering kicking the internal combustion habit and going electric, Tony Tomei has the class for you.

“There is no class like this that I know of offered in New Mexico,” Tomei said. “We want people to know what’s available to them, what options they have – in a price range that they can afford.”

His upcoming class, “Electric Vehicles, Hybrids and Conversions: Their Time Has Come,” will start July 2 at UNM-LA, and is designed for newbies, tech junkies – anyone from housewives to teenagers, he said.

“Think about the environment. Think about your pocketbook,” Tomei said. “There is a plethora of electric vehicle manufacturers that have vehicles on sale now.”

Students in the class will delve into the history of electric cars, from the early crank vehicles that competed with Henry Ford’s Model-T, all the way up to the Tesla roadster, a fully electric sports car that does 0-60 in under four seconds and can travel 220 miles on a single charge.

The class, however, is far more than just a history lesson.
