I read your letter to "Joe the Plumber." Very insightful as usual. You could paste the entire letter directly into the blog with formatting, photos, etc. to make it more interesting. Also I'd suggest editing your tags and removing (e.g., chance, coming for, joe, the, together). These are confusing. Tags are meant to be the most important keywords, referral points for finding over the Internet. Just a couple suggestions to make your blog more enjoyable for the reader. Presentation is everything.

Electric car use by country | Wikipedia

Increasing adoption of electric vehicles around the world has in recent years been expanding rapidly. As of the end of 2016: Cumulative global sales of highway legal plug-in electric passenger cars and light utility vehicles achieved the 2 million unit milestone in December 2016, of which, 38% were sold in 2016.[1]. The 1 million milestone had only been reached in September 2016. Global sales of the light-duty plug-in vehicle segment achieved a 0.86% market share of total new car sales, up from 0.62% in 2015 and 0.38% in 2014.[3] The global ratio between all-electric cars (BEVs) and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) was 61:39, up from 59:41 at the end of 2015. Cumulative sales of plug-in hybrids totaled almost 800,000 units. Despite their rapid growth, plug-in electric cars represented only 0.15% of the 1.4 billion motor vehicles on the world's roads, up from 0.1% in 2015.
