Like any other petrolhead out there, Oraan fell in love with cars in his infancy, so it was only natural for him to become student at a University specialized in the automotive field. In 2000, he became a car journalist and for almost 15 years he tested all kinds of cars, wrote industry analysis articles and expressed his opinions on automotive subjects.

Unlike many petrolheads out there, Oraan-the-engineer increasingly became aware of downsides of combustion engines. At the beginning of the 2010s Oraan-the-car-journalist transformed at a fast pace from a nothing-to-worry-petrolhead to an environment-responsible-electrohead.

At that time everybody was mocking Elon Musk for his Tesla “secret plan”, so Oraan-the-electrohead became the outlaw-advocate-of-electromobility in the petrolheads world. In 2014 he decided to start his own online project aimed to inform and educate the public about green technologies and so-called unconventional-propulsion for cars.

In recent years, Oraan involved in other projects out of the car industry. But he’s still a vigilant “devil’s advocate”, especially since he’s a daily EV commuter. That’s why he couldn’t miss the opportunity to debunk EV myths, explain green tech breakthroughs and share the news in this field to autoevolution audience.
