The automotive industry is experiencing a rapid shift towards electric vehicles (EVs) as automakers introduce advanced models with cutting-edge technology. Recently, Audra Fordin, CEO of Women Auto Know, a platform dedicated to empowering women in the automotive industry, attended the prestigious New York Auto Show. She had the opportunity to attend the New York Auto Show and test drive the Ford Mach E, along with other EV cars such as the World Car of the Year; the Hyundai Ionic.
As a leading figure in the automotive industry and an advocate for women’s empowerment, her experience provides valuable insights into the world of EVs and their potential impact on the industry.
As a woman in a traditionally male-dominated industry, her presence at the New York Auto Show highlights the importance of women’s representation in the automotive world.
Fordin’s impressions of the Ionic and Mach E were highly positive, as she noted its thrilling acceleration, more spacious and overall enjoyable driving experience. These EVs represent a diverse range of offerings in the growing EV market, each with their unique features and performance capabilities. The Mach E reaches 0-60 in 3.8 seconds, watch the video below to view our experience.
It wasn’t all EV as we entered the first floor of the auto show. We were able to experience performance vehicles customized with performance parts, including fuel injectors, as well as restoration models. There were vehicles from the “Top Secret” collection as well as vendors such as South Bay Fuel Injectors displaying their performance and tuned vehicles.
Audra Fordin’s experience with these EV cars and attending the EV press conference provided her with valuable insights into the similarities and differences, advantages and disadvantages between various EV models and internal combustion engines. The insight provided about these vehicles can help provide a comprehensive understanding of the EV landscape and its potential impact on the automotive industry.
Historically, the automotive industry has been male-dominated, with limited representation of women in leadership roles. However, as the industry evolves towards EVs and other advanced technologies, it is crucial to ensure that women’s perspectives and preferences are taken into account.
Women are an important demographic in the automotive market, with their purchasing power and influence on household buying decisions on the rise. As such, their feedback and opinions on EVs, as well as other aspects of the automotive industry, are invaluable in shaping the future of mobility.
