    Segment Transcript

    Kia America Director of Corporate Communications James Bell says a lot of people with kids don’t always consider EVs. He says while manufacturers are transitioning more and more to EVs, a family EV should be on your test drive list.  Bell: "I think the first thing is to recognize that we're in a transitional period. It's not too dissimilar from what happened between you know horse-drawn carriages and gasoline-powered cars. It didn't happen overnight but it happened and we're in that same phase right now. And for most American families an electric vehicle is going to be the best choice. Many people drive on average between 28 to 30 miles per day. A vehicle like this sitting next to me gives over 300 miles of range on a single charge.  So I think that's the moment we need to think about. It may not be tomorrow that you have an electric car but it probably makes better sense to your family than you expect.  And it's worth at least taking a look at and checking out some of the new options, they're really fantastic."
