*Lightning in a Throttle: Three Early Electric Vehicle Victories*


*New ebook by automotive journalist and EV expert Kristen Hall-Geisler*


Portland, OR, March 9, 2017– Electric cars from major manufacturers like
Chevy and Nissan as well as startups like Tesla and Lucid Motors are
bringing cutting-edge emissions-free technology to modern roads. And
Formula E is bringing elite-level all-electric racing to cities worldwide.
But as newfangled as these cars seem, they are far from the first. By,
like, a century.


*Lightning in a Throttle: Three Early Electric Vehicle Victories *is an
ebook in three acts:

·         A proto-hipster who dropped out of Columbia to start an electric
vehicle business in Brooklyn

·         A speed-crazed Belgian who battled to break the 100 km/h barrier

·         An inventor whose inventions sometimes veered off track –
literally – and into crowds of spectators


*Lightning in a Throttle *is the text of a paper author and automotive
journalist Kristen Hall-Geisler presented in November 2016 at the Jean S.
Argetsinger Symposium on International Motor Racing History, a
collaboration between the Society of Automotive Historians International
Motorsports History and the International Motor Racing Research Center in
Watkins Glen, NY.


The ebook is available on June 21, 2017, for Kindle (.mobi file), for all
other ereaders (.epub file), and as a PDF, each retailing for $1.99. Review
copies are available on request in advance.

The author is available for interviews and to give the presentation based
on this book. Please use the contact information above to schedule.
