Study Shows Home Charging Most Preferred by EV Owners

For most drivers switching from conventional petrol or diesel-powered vehicles to electric vehicles (“EVs”), charging is one of their biggest concerns. Charging an EV is quite different from stopping at a gas station and filling the tank; EV drivers have several charging options at their disposal, depending on their circumstances. They can charge overnight at home, during the day at the office or at compatible public EV charging stations. According to a study by JD Power, dedicated home charging is the most preferred method of charging by electric vehicle owners. For countries looking to meet climate goals and reduce carbon…

Compel Oil Firms to Install EV Chargers, Says UK Think Tank

Last year, the UK government unveiled an ambitious plan that would see the country ban the sale of new internal-combustion-engine (“ICE”) vehicles in exchange for electric vehicles (“EVs”). Powered by rechargeable lithium-ion battery packs, EVs produce zero emissions at the tailpipe, and for most countries, they represent the next frontier of clean, vehicular transport. However, one issue that has consistently stood in the way of widespread EV adoption is the absence of a network of reliable public electric vehicle chargers. To increase the number of public charging stations and boost EV adoption, a UK think tank says oil firms should…

EV Makers Jostle for Space in Chinese ‘Experience’ Stores to Lure Buyers

With electric vehicle (“EV”) makers, established automotive firms and battery companies compete to capture a piece of the young but swiftly growing EV market, China has emerged as the place to be. Chinese consumers are ditching their internal-combustion-engine (“ICE”) cars for electric vehicles at an unprecedented rate, turning mainland China into the largest EV market on the globe. To lure even more buyers, China-based companies such as NIO Inc. (NYSE: NIO) and Xpeng Motors, international brands such as Genesis and Mercedes, and market leader Tesla have all opened numerous “experience stores” in prime retail establishments. Designed to market the benefits…

Google Maps Tweaks Functionality with EV Drivers in Mind

When you’re driving a conventional internal combustion engine (“ICE”) car, going for a long drive or even taking an interstate road trip isn’t a hassle. All you have to do is plan a route to your destination, and you’re ready to hit the road. But for EV drivers, things get a little complicated. Although electric vehicles produce minimal emissions and are cheaper to fuel and maintain over their lifetimes, finding a reliable public charger while on the road can be quite a hassle. Range anxiety, or the fear of running out of juice without a charging station in sight, has…

Could EV Charging Be an Untapped Business Opportunity?

The electric vehicle (“EV”) industry is projected to grow exponentially over the next few decades as countries, states and cities strive to reduce carbon emissions and meet climate goals. Electric cars accounted for 2.6% of global car sales in 2019, and although authorities have introduced a variety of policies to make EVs more affordable and push EV adoption, charging has been a major thorn in the young industry’s side. This can partly be attributed to the fact that companies don’t generally look at EV charging as a business and, consequently, don’t invest much into public EV charging infrastructure. Gas stations,…

Danish Researchers Aim to Develop Next-Gen EV Battery

Although electric vehicles (“EVs”) are poised to replace internal combustion engine (“ICE”) vehicles over the next few decades, they currently account for a small fraction of global car sales. One issue that has consistently stood in the way of widespread EV adoption is recharging times, with EV batteries taking much longer to recharge compared to refueling ICE vehicles. For most countries to achieve their EV adoption and climate goals, battery companies and EV makers would have to design electric vehicle batteries that can recharge in an incredibly short time without sustaining any damage. Danish researchers from Aarhus University are working…

AI Could Help Find EV Charging Infrastructure Gaps by Reading User Reviews

Plenty of drivers would like to switch to electric vehicles (“EVs”) because they produce zero emissions at the tailpipe and are generally cheaper to maintain and fuel over the lifetime of the vehicle. However, the current network of public charging stations doesn’t inspire much confidence in prospective EV drivers, with most drivers being wary of running out of charge without a charging station in sight. The fact that most of the charging stations are largely run by independent entities with no connection to each other and that don’t share data makes it difficult to build a reliable network of charging…
