The electric vehicle (EV) market in North America is starting to hit a fever pitch, with estimates of 11,000,000 EVs on the road by 2025. Considering there were less than 500K EVs on the roads in the US in 2016, and the fact that the adoption rate is increasing exponentially year after year, it’s clear that EVs are here for the long haul.
Check out five of the new technologies unveiled at CES that we think will make a huge impact on the world and the way we live. More than just a faster processor or a higher resolution monitor, this tech could have a real lasting impact.
Sure, the electric vehicle has become one of the biggest disrupters to the transportation industry, but while this massive change is on the horizon, there is still a lot that needs to change in order to accommodate for it.
With everything going on in America today, it can be hard to keep track of all the changes to public policy that’ll affect you personally. One change that may have flown under your radar — the federal rebate for electric vehicles (EV) is going away in 2018.

There are hundreds of great reasons to make the switch to EV. The cars are more fuel-efficient. They are cheaper to maintain. They are insanely fun to drive (seriously, when that instant torque kicks in, it’s like you’re going warp speed).
