Sebastian Blanco, Contributing Writer

Sebastian Blanco has been writing about electric vehicles, hybrids, and hydrogen cars since 2006. His articles and car reviews have appeared in The New York Times, Automotive News, Reuters, Autoblog, InsideEVs, Trucks.com, Car Talk, and other outlets. His first green car media event was the launch of the Tesla Roadster, and since then he has been tracking the shift away from gasoline-powered vehicles and discovering its importance not just for the auto industry, but for the world as a whole. Throw in the recent shift to autonomous vehicles, and there are more interesting changes happening now than most people can wrap their heads around. You can find him on Twitter @SebastianBlanco or, on good days, behind the wheel of an EV.
