Electric Road Trip

Video blog, week 4: The Midwest

The fourth week of the Electric Road Trip just ended after starting out in Detroit, the home of the auto industry. In this video blog, reporters Jeffrey Tomich and Peter Behr recount their visits with striking General Motors workers and a top developer of Ford's electric vehicle strategy. They cut west through Chicago and Iowa and up into the Twin Cities and its environs, where electrification has grassroots appeal.

In Red Wing, Minn., where our roving scribes filmed this blog, electric car enthusiasts welcomed E&E News with warm smiles and open arms. Next week, reporter David Ferris hits the dusty trail through North Dakota. Stay tuned for the adventures.
