About Veloz

Veloz is a nonprofit organization with unparalleled stakeholder leadership made up of a high-powered, diverse board and members from key sector companies, agencies and nonprofits. Veloz means fast because we have to move quickly. The world’s cars are going electric, but not fast enough.

Vision

The future is electric for all.  All vehicles are electric; all people, corporations and agencies who want or need a car or truck can and do choose electric; and all energy that powers these vehicles is carbon-free.

Mission

Veloz engages its powerhouse of members, public-private partnerships, programs, policy engagement and public awareness campaigns to overcome barriers to electrification and create a virtuous cycle of desire and demand, with more affordable makes and models and refueling stations.

Veloz aims to make electric for all a reality

A Foundation of Success

Veloz builds on the success of the California Plug-In Electric Vehicle Collaborative, a public-private partnership founded in 2010 to convene, collaborate and communicate on emerging electric car market trends, address challenges and enable strong market growth.
