Study Indicates Commercial Electric Vehicles Could Have Massive Benefits

As several countries and automakers move toward electrification, most of the focus has been placed on passenger vehicles. After all, these types of cars make up the majority of the vehicles on the world's roads and are responsible for more than 40% of global carbon emissions from transportation. As such, most automakers have focused on building electric passenger vehicles, and governments keen on electrification have been working to push electric vehicle (“EV”) adoption among the masses. However, a new study has found that electrifying the commercial truck segment could have even bigger benefits. Like the trains of old, diesel trucks…

EVs Give Automakers Liberty While Designing Cars

For decades, car makers have adhered to a relatively similar vehicle design. They were forced to work around an internal combustion engine and transmission, and they had to ensure that powertrains, either gas, diesel, or later on hybrid, had enough room to spin and breathe. The result was often vehicles with reduced or cramped cabin space and large grills at the front to ensure proper airflow. This has been the norm for decades, and until recently, automakers did not stray from this design. With the advent of zero-emission electric vehicles (“EVs”), car makers are now at liberty to exercise their…

Commercial Fleets Set to Boost EV Uptake

Road transportation accounts for 15% of all global carbon dioxide emissions, with passenger vehicles producing nearly half. In a bid to cut these carbon emissions as well as reduce reliance on fossil fuels, several countries have pledged to steadily replace conventional vehicles with zero-emission electric cars over the next couple of decades. However, electric-vehicle penetration is still low in most territories, mostly due to their extremely high prices coupled with a poor and often unreliable network of public charging stations. Although governments are offering subsidies to make EVs more affordable for average drivers and installing public chargers to ease range…

Essential Tips on Charging Your EV Every Night

The next few decades will see battery electric vehicles (“EVs”) become the dominant mode of vehicular transport. As such, drivers are predictably worried about how they will charge their electric vehicles once they make the switch and ditch their petrol- and diesel-powered cars. While range anxiety is a main concern among most drivers, especially given that there are insufficient public charging stations, research shows that using home chargers for overnight charging can provide all the driving power most cars need. Even though electric vehicle makers have been developing EVs with increasing range, the reality is on average, most drivers don’t…

North Dakota Wakes Up to EV Revolution

Although the United States has plans to be carbon neutral by 2050 mainly by replacing internal combustion engine vehicles with electric cars, the rate of electrification has varied significantly state by state. While pacesetters such as California, Florida and Texas have thousands of electric vehicles (“EVs”), with California containing 42% of the nation's EVs, others like North Dakota have extremely low EV penetration. With just 266 registered battery electric vehicles (“BEVs”), North Dakota has the least fully electric vehicles of all states. Not only does North Dakota experience pretty low temperatures which can harm EV batteries and reduce the vehicles'…

Honda to Manufacture Its Own EVs

Looking to cut their carbon emissions and reduce their reliance on the fossil fuels responsible for these emissions, several countries plan to gradually replace conventional vehicles with electric cars over the next couple of decades. The move toward electrification hasn't been limited to just governments; sensing the winds shift away from the century-old internal combustion engine, plenty of automakers have also pledged to electrify their vehicle lines. Honda, which had until recently partnered with General Motors to build EVs, has announced that it will start manufacturing its own electric vehicles (“EVs”) later in the decade. Currently, General Motors and Honda…

Chinese EV Capital Offers Vital Lessons to the Rest of the World

Electric vehicles (“EVs”) still make a minuscule percentage of new vehicles sold every year, but governments all around the world are trying to sell EVs to their citizens. If governments are to succeed in this crucial goal, they should look to Liuzhou, a city in China that has been dubbed the country's electric car capital. China is the largest EV market in the world, with its residents buying more EVs compared to other developed nations. The southern Chinese city of Liuzhou has done quite a lot to fill its streets with electric vehicles; their actions could be applied to other…

Ernst & Young Believes EVs Could Dominate Roads Five Years Sooner

Most developed countries are hoping for electric vehicle (“EV”) sales to surpass the sale of internal combustion engine (“ICE”) vehicles over the next couple of decades. The United States, China and Europe are currently the largest EV markets in the world, but save for Norway and Southern Chinese city Liuzhou, EV sales in most territories make up a small percentage of total vehicle sales. As such, most of these countries have given themselves years, and in some cases decades, to slowly replace ICE vehicles with zero-emission electric cars. However, new research from Ernst & Young says that these counties may…
