Connecticut Considers Options to Make EV Rebates More Equitable

The need for clean, sustainable energy could not have been greater. As polar ice caps melt and wildfires become commonplace, governments have put in motion plans to replace carbon based energy with cleaner solar and wind derived energy. Electric cars will play a big part in reducing our carbon emissions, but there are a couple of factors standing in the way of widespread electric vehicle (“EV”) adoption. Chief among them is cost: electric vehicles are crazy expensive to produce and unfortunately, these costs are usually passed down to the consumer, thus confining most EVs on the market to high income…

Technical Glitch Enables Free EV Charging in Europe

Aside from being the most famous electric vehicle (“EV”) maker, Tesla is the only electric vehicle maker that has invested in a widespread charging network for its drivers. The company’s network of destination chargers and Superchargers are arguably more reliable than the charging networks drivers of other EV vehicles have to use. However, a technical glitch seems to be allowing EV drivers who don’t drive a Tesla to use some European Tesla Superchargers. A couple of days ago, non-Tesla electric car owners were surprised to find that they could charge their vehicles for free at the new V3 Superchargers in…

Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER) Promises to Go All-Electric by 2030

Over the next decade or so, most developed countries plan to phase out internal combustion-engine vehicles in exchange for electric vehicles (“EVs”). Not only do they run on clean energy, but EV’s have zero emissions, making them perfect for drivers who are keen on reducing their carbon footprint. Rideshare giant Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER) recently announced an ambitious plan to have “100 percent” of rides take place in electric vehicles by 2030 in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and it is using an interesting strategy to achieve it. Instead of directly paying drivers to trade their fossil-fuel vehicles for…

Survey Finds UK Citizens Unprepared for Switch to Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles (“EV”) represent the next frontier in green, zero-emission energy. Most developed governments plan on replacing conventional vehicles with electric vehicles over the next decade and billions of dollars have been invested into achieving this goal. However, despite the insane mainstream attention EVs have been getting for the past few years, we are still a long way from widespread EV adoption, according to a new survey. The new Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (“SMMT”) survey by Savanta ComRes suggests that almost half of UK citizens do not feel ready to make the switch to electric vehicles by 2035.…

Trojan Energy Could Hold the Key to the Future of EV Charging

Although most developed governments have plans to phase out internal combustion-engine vehicles for electric vehicles over the next decade or so, one issue that stands in their way is charging. EVs generally don’t have that much range, unless you’re willing to shell out a few extra bucks for a vehicle with a larger battery and greater range. And even if you can afford to, chances are you will have to deal with issues like spotty charging infrastructure (unless you buy a Tesla which has its own network of charging systems). However, technology pioneered by Trojan Energy may completely change the…

Everything You Need to Know About EV Batteries

Over the past few years, it has become exceedingly clear that the carbon-based energy that propelled humanity to its greatest heights is quite harmful to the environment. Governments have therefore started turning to solar and wind-generated energy as well as electric vehicles to reduce their countries’ overall carbon footprint. In fact, plenty of developed countries have plans to phase out internal combustion-engine vehicles in exchange for electric vehicles, which thanks to the battery packs that power them, run on clean energy, and have zero emissions. EV batteries can power an EV for thousands of miles followed by a secondary use…

UK July EV Sales Bring Hope to Automotive Industry

The coronavirus has dealt the world economy a blow it will take years to recover from. With most economies severely slowed down for most of the year, plenty of industries have been affected. While the food service, air travel, and hospitality industries were perhaps the most affected, the automotive industry did not escape unscathed, at least until July. After months of disappointing sales, the UK industry saw 175,000 new registrations in July, an 11% rise from last year. Battery-powered electric vehicles accounted for 4.7% of all new sales in July, and experts expect this trend to continue for the rest…
