UK Research Shows 40% of Parents Prefer Kids’ First Car Be an EV

Electric vehicles aren’t just a hobby for car enthusiasts or rich people who have extra cash to burn. EVs are poised to become the dominant form of vehicular transportation over the next couple of decades, and several countries around the world have avowed their commitment to electrify their roads. Even though the percentage of the globe’s cars that are electric is still quite small, more and more people are buying electric cars or considering buying EVs in the future. According to a new study by Peugeot UK, interest in these zero-emission vehicles isn’t limited to the older generations; kids are…

Little-Known EV Startup Is Manufacturing Vans in America

The ongoing electric vehicle (“EV”) revolution is not just limited to passenger electric vehicles. There are millions of fleet vehicles in America including trucks, vans and buses, and most experts agree that electrifying the U.S. fleets is a surefire way to increase mass EV adoption exponentially. However, while several EV startups and established automakers have developed and unveiled passenger electric vehicles, with Rivian mass producing the first electric pickup truck, none of them seems to have made a major commitment towards producing electric vans in the near future. With most companies in the automotive space focused on small- and medium-sized…

Taycan, Porsche’s First EV, Outsells Company’s Iconic Sports Car

Established automakers have jumped into the burgeoning electric vehicle (“EV”) industry with plenty of gusto. Most automakers have pledged to electrify their lineups over the next two decades, with some of them already unveiling EV models to extremely positive reactions. Large automakers have been able to leverage their decades of experience and contacts gathered from years in the business and electrify their lineups in ways that EV start-ups never could. The results have been encouraging, to say the least, and no car maker has experienced this as much as German auto-manufacturer Porsche. Interestingly, the German company currently has only one…

Converting Classic Vehicles into Fully Electric Cars a Growing Trend

Over the next decade, electric vehicles (“EVs”) will become a staple on our roads as most automakers strive to electrify their lineups. The increasingly apparent side effects of climate change have necessitated the switch from internal combustion engine (“ICE”) vehicles to zero-emission electric cars, and several countries across the world have pledged to phase out the sale of new ICE cars over the next decade or two. Despite the high initial costs associated with purchasing electric vehicles, people have been opting for them in droves, buying an estimated 7.2 million EVs since the electric cars became mainstream. Some drivers in…

Tips to Maximize Your EV’s Range

Once you purchase an electric vehicle (“EV”), you will have to relearn almost every aspect of driving as EVs are fundamentally different from ordinary gas-powered vehicles. Rather than a combustion engine powered by fossil fuels, electric vehicles rely on rechargeable lithium-ion battery packs coupled with electric motors to generate movement. The size of the battery pack and the amount of power it can hold after a single charge will depend on the make of the vehicle, with some EVs having modest, two-digit ranges while others have as much as 400 miles of range. But regardless of the initial range an…

Discovery’s Fifth Gear to Return in EV Format

It looks like electric vehicles (“EVs”) will soon permeate every facet of society. As the world grapples with the increasingly apparent effects of human-caused climate change, several countries have begun efforts to replace the internal combustion engine vehicles on their roads with zero-emission electric vehicles. By 2020, there were 6.8 million electric vehicles around the world with EV sales projected to increase exponentially over the next decade. Therefore, it’s only natural that “Fifth Gear,” a long-running Discovery motoring television series that examines and reviews the latest vehicles and motorcycles, would turn its eye to electric vehicles. The TV show is…

How EVs Are Revolutionizing Fleet Management

Vehicular transportation around the world is poised for a major transformation as countries finally begin to ditch internal combustion engine (“ICE”) vehicles for cleaner alternatives. Despite all the industrial advancements humanity has made thanks to fossil fuels and the internal combustion engine, it has come at the cost of the planet’s climate. After decades of belching greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, ICE vehicles have found a successor in electric vehicles (“EVs”). And according to experts, countries will see mass adoption of EVs and significantly increase their chances of meeting their emission standards if they focus their attention on electrifying commercial…

Nine in Ten Vehicles Sold in Norway Are Hybrid or Fully Electric

Although the entire globe should be focused on reducing reliance on fossil fuels by eliminating internal combustion engine (“ICE”) vehicles in favor of zero-emission electric vehicles (“EVs”), significant EV adoption has been limited to select regions. China, Europe and the United States are home to a majority of the electric vehicles in the world, with most of them operating in urban areas. Europe, which has battled with China for the top spot as the largest EV market, is home to the world’s most promising EV industry, Norway. In 2020, electric vehicle sales in the Nordic country reached 54.3% of total…

EV Adoption Currently Too Slow to Address Climate Challenges

The discovery of fossil fuels followed by the development of the combustion engine was a game-changer for humanity. In less than 50 years, the world went from traveling on horseback and tilling the land with ox-drawn plows to driving automobiles and building massive factories. The internal combustion engine (“ICE”) was integral to industrialization, but despite all the good it has done for the advancement of humanity, burning fossil fuels for more than a century has had a catastrophic effect on the planet. Increased greenhouse gas emissions has led to the planet steadily heating up for decades, and the effects are…

Study Shows Wireless EV Charging Could Cut Fleet Costs by 50%

As the world strives to switch to clean, renewable sources of energy, several countries have pledged to replace the internal combustion engine (“ICE”) vehicles on their roads with zero-emission electric vehicles (“EVs”). However, EV adoption has remained low mostly because of high costs, range anxiety and insufficient EV charging infrastructure. Experts have posited that rather than focusing most of their energy on pushing for the adoption of passenger electric vehicles, authorities should instead focus on electrifying fleets. Not only do the municipalities behind these fleets have the resources to purchase EVs and install private charging infrastructure, but they will benefit…
