About Us

Fishbone Motors started several years ago by two friends with the simple intention of purchasing cars for ourselves and our close friends.  Personally, we needed daily drivers and work vehicles, plus our friends in Alaska needed trucks and AWD rigs, so we took the necessary steps to procure our Dealer's License in order to purchase quality wholesale vehicles.  We both also had an interest in promoting green tech as a way to positively impact the environment, so we decided to look into the viability of Electric Vehicles in Alaska. We found a perfect fit and within a year our business pivoted and is now almost exclusively concentrated around promoting and selling EVs. 

 

We secure cars from several different auto makers, but tend to focus on the Chevy Bolt, Nissan Leaf, and Kia Soul EV .  We've found these particular car to be the best "bang for the buck" in the used EV market.  They all have a proven track record, amazing dependability and nearly zero maintenance requirements.  We mainly purchase one-owner, lease-returns directly from the manufacturer and  inspect every vehicle, so you're guaranteed a high quality car every time.  These cars are primarily tracked down in the Seattle area, but occasionally Portland and Northern California as well.  Some are released locally in Washington, but we're hoping to increase EV populations in remote locations, so most are barged to Juneau where they are set loose into the wilds of S.E. Alaska. 

 

We now have loads of knowledge plus years of experience and our mission statement is focused around educating those new to Electric Vehicles, as well as streamlining the buying experience and removing all pressure with our fully transparent approach to selling.  We try to answer the most common questions in our "EV INFO/FAQs" page (click tab near top of page), but please feel free to follow up with any additional questions.  You can reach us directly: Erik in Juneau at 907.321.3483 or Tom in Seattle at 425.780.9786. 

Purchasing a used Electric Vehicle is a fantastic way to help the environment!
