EV Curriculum Courses

EVU is a free, open ‘university’ that presents concise, video based mini-courses for those who have interest in electric vehicles (EVs) in general and/or the Tesla Model S (and other EVs in the future).


The intent of the EV curriculum track is to present introductory and more advanced mini-courses that cover important aspects of electric vehicles. This track allows the average car buyer to better understand EVs, demystifying the technology that underlies the vehicles, indicating the various options open to those who are considering EVs, and describing the core elements that are part of every EV.
