New year, new beginnings—for a lot of brand new electric cars, that is. In 2018, the number of electric vehicles on the roads is expected to increase from three to five million. There's potential for this year to be the one where the "hockey stick growth" becomes a reality. It's quite the jump, but the number of new electric car models coming out this year might just give it the extra nudge it.
Would you rather have your pizza delivered by a drone or a self-driving car?
That’s how we broke the ice during EVS30 and eMove360 in Germany last month. The consensus was clear: people want a self-driving car with an actual person, who will be able to walk up the stairs, and bring the pizza right to their doorsteps. We were blown away by how people were actually thinking this through. But we.
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.
Don't worry, you're not the only one that's outraged. If you want to help prevent this rebate from going away, join forces with Plug In.
A lot of potential electric vehicle drivers are paralyzed by the fear of their car’s battery dying mid-trip, leaving them stranded in the middle of nowhere. The truth is, however, that scenario simply isn’t going to happen. Sure, if you drive far enough without charging, your car will die. Same thing with a gas car. And yes, there are more gas stations lining our streets than electric vehicle.
The truth is, “electric cars” has always been a heavily Googled search term, whether it be those electric toy cars for the kids, or the grownup version. The search term hit its peak in 2008, right when Tesla launched its first electric car – the Tesla Roadster. In the past few months, we’ve seen a slight increase in search popularity, yet it hasn’t managed to reach the peak of 2008. What.
The Tesla Model 3 is here at last. A lucky few took it for a spin, and it did not disappoint. Volvo also made headlines a few weeks ago, when they announced to exclusively make cars with only electric motors starting 2019. A bold call, which we hope will influence other car manufacturers in the next few years. Based on the new cars launching this year, and between 2018 and 2021, it seems like.
Norway and The Netherlands are the undisputed kings of electric mobility. Together, they share a total number of over 240,000 electric vehicles on the road. Not a shocker, as Norway’s been ahead of the game since the 1990s, when it introduced the first electric-car incentives. As a result, half of all new vehicles in Norway are fully-electric or plug-in hybrids today. The Netherlands on the.
Ever since garages became a thing in Silicon Valley, an endless array of businesses have sprung up promising “to make the world a better place”. Now that President Trump has announced to withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Agreement, it appears that we need businesses like these more than ever.
Predicting the future is a risky practice. The tumultuous turn of events and the fast-paced evolution of technology can make it quite tough for anyone to predict how an industry or human behaviour will change over time. Yet thanks to an abundance of technological innovations taking place in the mobility industry today, we can finally peek into the glass ball and see how exactly we'll be able.
