On January 10, Energy Secretary Steven Chu was at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit to promote the Obama administration’s support for the domestic auto industry. The Auto Show has hosted the unveilings of several new hybrid and electric vehicle models, and including vehicles by American auto manufacturers like Ford, General Motors, and Tesla.

To coincide with Chu’s visit to Detroit, the Department of Energy has released a new video titled “Energy 101: Electric Vehicles.” The video briefly explains the basic technology behind electric vehicles, as well as highlighting some of the many perks and benefits to owning an EV. You can learn more about the video’s production and some of the other advantages to EV-ownership at the DOE website.
