Are you looking for quality YouTube videos about electric vehicles?? Me too! That is why I created EVsoup. Basically EVsoup follows various YouTube channels that primarily cover the topic of EV’s. EVsoup regularly and automatically checks for new videos and embeds them so that you can watch them here.
“Couldn’t you just… you know… use YouTube?”
Well, yes, and I often do. The problem with YouTube is how the algorithm funnels you into wasting your time on videos not worth watching. Sometimes it even tries to lead you down a disinformation rabbit hole. EVsoup is checking for new videos from high quality content creators who care about EV’s. When you visit EVsoup, you will see those videos listed with the newest videos first and no annoying notifications.
“So who is EVsoup targeted at?”
I made EVsoup for myself as well as other EV enthusiasts… but mainly for myself. If you like it, then great! I’m happy you like it too.
“Wait a second… What about copyrights? How can this be legal?”
EVsoup is absolutely 100% legal. Although constantly updating, YouTube’s terms of service are on generally on EVsoup’s side. No one is exploiting any “loopholes” or doing anything shady. YouTube content providers agree to those terms, and they have the option to prevent embedded videos from playing their content on sites other than YouTube. Everything is legit.
Got a request to add, modify, or remove YouTube channels? It never hurts to ask!
EVsoup is always looking for channel suggestions! If you have a favorite YouTube channel that regularly presents decent content on the subject of electric vehicles, please drop me an email. My email address is flush2x at that wildly popular Google Mail dot com. Please don’t contact me with regards to this site unless it’s about adding, modifying, or removing YouTube content from this site or just dropping me a line to tell me how you like the site. I don’t need SEO optimizing, guest content, advertisers, and cannot insert posts manually. There is no money here. This site is not a business, and I do not have “customers”. The content posting system is automated, but the process to add, remove or modify a channel cannot be automated, so it might take me a few days or even a couple of weeks for me to get around to it, so please be patient.
Keep in mind that in some rare cases, a channel may not be able to be added because they block embedding or use other tricks to thwart EVsoup’s feed parser.
“Hey, where did that video that used to be here go?”
EVsoup is not intended to be an archive and the older videos may occasionally be purged. While I am not going to do anything to stop anyone, I don’t recommend linking to the posts on EVsoup, because whenever I need to reset the site, anything older than the last 15 videos on a YouTuber’s channel will be gone. Instead, I recommend linking to the actual YouTube page.
So what’s the connection with mBlip?
I own both. EVsoup is the sibling site of mBlip. The obvious difference is that EVsoup is focused EV’s, while mBlip is more focused on generalized “edutainment”. I could have kept it all under one roof, but EV channels would have dominated the contrent and it would therefore have complicated the taxonomy structure.
I also wanted to mention that just like mBlip, EVsoup.com never accepts donations, nor will EVsoup seek any revenue through advertising. Sponsorships placed in the videos and the video descriptions are those of the video makers and do not financially benefit or enrich EVsoup in any way. Visitor info will never be sold by EVsoup, and there is no interest in making money with this site or improving its search engine ranking. This site is a personal hobby, not a business.
Who are you? What’s your thing with EV’s?
I’m just some otherwise anonymous guy in Dayton. I used to own a Nissan Leaf (its silhouette is still used as the site banner above), but sold it and currently drive a ’22 Kia Niro.
For me personally, I think EV’s are the future of the automotive industry. My love of electric vehicles has nothing to do with environmentalism per se, but rather the belief that internal combustion is old and antiquated, much like the horse drawn carriage and millstone collars.
Electricity is a versatile power source, and while people often complain about being reliant on imports, electricity, at least in the US, is home grown. British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell… These aren’t American! Not to mention the oil that comes from OPEC or Venezuela. You’re driving on molecules that go to foreign entities, or worse, they fund terrorism. Coal, natural gas, wind, solar, hydro, and nuclear are all made right here at home.
And while EV’s aren’t cheaper to buy, they do have fewer maintenance requirements and charging at home is far less expensive than gasoline. Pay more up front. Save down the road.
They’re not as green as they say they are!
Sure, whatever. I don’t care.
Sure. I’d love to hear from you, and know what you think about this site. In case you missed it, my email address is flush2x at that wildly popular Google Mail dot com. If you can’t figure that out, then I probably don’t want to hear from you. If you are trying to sell me something or give me any kind of an offer, then I really don’t want to hear from you at all.
