Kia FUTURON 2-Door Crossover Concept EV
John Coulter is a co-founder and the Chief Marketing Officer of currentev.com – the world’s first car-shopping website devoted entirely to the sale and lease of electric vehicles. CURRENT EV sells and leases all the EVs, plug-in hybrids and hybrids available, with the exception of Tesla. Registered with the State of California as an auto dealer/broker, CURRENT EV’s unique EV shopping methodology represents the future of automobile leasing and purchasing. 99% of the company’s transactions are leases – the preferred basis for driving an EV, hybrid or plug-in.
The company was named CURRENT EV for 2 reasons. The double entendre stands for the “current” Clean Technology vehicles the company represents, and the non-CO2-polluting electric “current” that operates them.
The currentev.com website designed by John includes a unique car shopping tool – Find The Best Price – that customers use for free to “build” their vehicle and anonymously obtain low offers from LA dealerships. Having all the EVs and hybrids displayed on one website allows customers to peruse specs, photos and info of each car, without needing to move from one site to another. The site’s three tools – Compare Cars, Find The Right Car and Find The Best Deal, provide CURRENT EV customers with many options for adopting the EV Lifestyle.
Via this online Amazon-like shopping paradigm, CURRENT EV is stimulating highly efficient e-commerce of electric vehicles in Los Angeles; one of the three top EV adoption cities in the USA. This streamlined methodology gets rid of annoying price haggling and lengthy visits to dealerships. CURRENT EV keeps your personal contact info private until you accept an offer. No salesman call you. Customers can sign paperwork and pick up their new car at the dealership, or have their new vehicle delivered to them.
CURRENT EV’s service is free. Receiving its commission from the dealership instead of its customers, CURRENT EV negotiates prices that are consistently lower than what car-shoppers can obtain on their own. The company’s free service doesn’t stop after you get your car: you can call CURRENT EV with questions about your vehicle at any time. CURRENT EV advisors can help you install a charger, apply for a Federal Tax Credit, state rebates and HOV stickers. The benefits from driving an EV are enormous; they’re explained in detail on the currentev.com “Why drive an EV?” page.
As of 2021, the currentev.com portfolio contains approximately 70 electric vehicles, hybrids and plug-in hybrids. The number of EVs brokered by the company will dramatically increase over the next few years.
