[prMac.com] San Diego, California - Electric Car Insider magazine announced today the development of an interactive mobile EV Buyers Guide app for IOS tablets and mobile devices. The app helps people interested in electric cars learn about electric vehicle technology and find a car that fits their budget and lifestyle. The new multimedia app version of the EV Buyers Guide has instructional video, audio podcasts, interviews and image gallery slide shows providing views and details not possible to include in print.
Publisher Christopher Alan explained that the motivation for creating the app was to increase awareness and education of electric cars and other electric vehicles. "A majority of drivers in North America are not aware of the benefits of driving electric cars despite the fact that electric cars are substantially less expensive to operate than cars that use gas. EVs cost less for fuel and maintenance, and with tax and other incentives, actually cost less to purchase or lease than gas cars."
Alan estimated that the digital app will help tens of thousands of people interested in driving zero emission vehicles to make the switch from gasoline to electric transportation. "More electric cars on the road will improve air quality and reduce the nation's dependence on foreign oil" he said.
The company is taking advance orders on the Kickstarter website. Backers of the Kickstarter campaign gain early and discounted access to the product and other rewards which are listed on the project's Kickstarter web page.
The 2016 Kickstarter campaign is the second for Electric Car Insider magazine. In the 4th quarter of 2014, the company held a successful campaign to fund the development of the print edition of the 2015 EV Buyers Guide, raising nearly $12,000 to distribute the magazine through Barnes & Noble in the US and Chapters/Indigo in Canada.
