FOUNDING & VISION
FindMyElectric.com was registered on May 24, 2019, and has been in continuous, active development since that time. Prior to launch, our team spent 6-months analyzing the feature sets of existing used automotive marketplaces, comparing the nuances of the EV landscape to traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) sales ecosystems, forecasting market changes, examining EV adoption rates, and scrutinizing consumer buying behavior. This research resulted in a comprehensive gap analysis of the marketplace for used EVs, from which our development roadmap was created.
Find My Electric is initially focused on Tesla EVs, as there is no premium solution on the Internet to locate, filter, and sort early Tesla models. The handful of niche websites with Tesla listings are rudimentary, cumbersome to the user, lack Tesla-specific configurations and advanced search filtering, are high-priced—and the biggest issue—lack the infrastructure necessary to scale. The first release of FindMyElectric.com solves these issues.
Beyond its Tesla focus, ongoing attention is given to other USA EV startups including: Rivian, Nikola, Lucid Motors, Proterra, Canoo, Karma Automotive, Fisker Automotive and Lordstown Motors Corp. Broader and larger scale development efforts are focused on General Motors EV developments for their ICE phase out 2035 plan, Ford’s announcement that it plans to sell only electric passenger cars in Europe by 2030, and Volvo’s recent commitment to be fully electric by 2030. (Our team has particular focus on the 2021 Rivian IPO, valuing the startup at $50 billion dollars. Initial development schemas are already underway for the inclusion of Rivian 2021 R1T production release into the Find My Electric infrastructure).
The Find My Electric development infrastructure utilizes a database and AI search function which is capacity tested up to 1,000 new vehicle listings per day, and capable of hosting and searching over 500,000 listings simultaneously. We are currently developing scalable database modeling to increase capacity upwards of 1,000,000 active listings, prior to international expansion.
We have implemented a Distributed Search Network (DSN) with servers in strategic regions to reduce network latency, improve performance, and enhance the user experience across our platform. Our listings database, while currently bult for and optimized to the USA geo-location, is capable of being rapidly distributed across the world in 15 regions and 60 datacenters, built to scale to our international target markets.
Find My Electric aims to be the largest used Tesla marketplace in the USA by 2022, largest used Tesla marketplace in the world by 2023, and largest EV marketplace worldwide by 2025.
