Am I willing to do what it takes to reduce my carbon footprint by 80% in the next year? It’s the biggest question my co-worker Tim came home with from his expedition to the North Pole. And it’s probably the most important question we need to ask ourselves in order to slow down climate change — before it’s too late.
Two years ago, we wrote about the five biggest reasons why you need to swap your petrol or diesel car for an electric one. We still stand by them, but the industry has come a long way since then. Whereas only carmakers and startups who were early adopters dominated the EV sphere at the time, traditional auto manufacturers have now given in to the EV market as well. Despite every one of them.
The growth of the electric car industry today is much like how WiFi emerged a few decades ago. In the beginning, only a handful of leaders had the courage to offer the technology. But soon, other telecom companies had to keep up and provide WiFi too. More and more players joined the market until suddenly (or so it seemed) everyone was offering WiFi to act on the competition and accommodate the.
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. And different places are going about it in drastically different ways. Here, we are going to go over the five biggest ways EV driving in the United States differs from.
For those who don’t know, CES is the largest consumer electronics expo in the world, and every year, all the coolest and most cutting-edge products are out on display. And this year was no exception.
On the show floor, you’ll find everything from innovations in wireless charging to robots with artificial intelligence. Here the public has a chance to scope out all the awesome new tech that will.
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.
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 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.
