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…

Company Launches Fastest EV Charger in the World

As the effects of burning fossil fuels for more than a century become apparent amid global warming and extreme weather, several territories across the world have pledged to switch to zero-emission vehicles. Powered by lithium-ion battery cells, these vehicles produce zero emissions at the tailpipe, making them the perfect vehicle for a carbon-neutral economy. However, a variety of issues, including insufficient fast-charging infrastructure and range anxiety, have stood in the way of widespread electric vehicle (“EV”) adoption. Fortunately for green-energy proponents and EV lovers, one of the biggest players in the EV fast-charging game has unveiled a groundbreaking charger that…

Report Shows European EV Market Could Hit $855 Billion by 2028

The future of vehicular transport is undoubtedly electric. Several governments of countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas have pledged to replace a large percentage of the gas-powered vehicles on their roads with zero-emission electric vehicles (“EVs”) over the next few decades as the effects of human-induced climate change become more apparent. For most of the nascent EV sector's life, Europe and China have competed for the top spot as the world's largest EV market. According to a new market research report, Europe's chances of cementing its position at the top by the end of the decade are quite high.…

Why EV Stocks Are Skyrocketing Amid Dropping Sales

For the past year or so, the world has been gripped by a shortage of semiconductor chips. Extremely crucial components in a wide variety of industries, these chips are needed for everything from smartphones and laptops to washing machines and cars. As such, several industries have been disrupted by the chip shortage, resulting in halted production and reduced sales as manufacturers wait for the global supply of chips to bounce back. The electric vehicle (“EV”) industry, which was just starting to pick up steam when the coronavirus pandemic exacerbated the shortage, has not been spared. But curiously, despite reduced vehicle…

Five Midwest Governors Team Up on EV-Charging Infrastructure

Electrification is poised to revolutionize the global transportation sector, turning it from an industry that's responsible for one-third of the world's greenhouse emissions to a zero-emissions space. As several countries across the globe have revealed plans to replace internal combustion engine (“ICE”) vehicles with electric vehicles (“EV”), authorities and automakers are working to make this dream a reality. The nascent EV sector still has plenty of barriers before it can fully replace ICE cars, and a partnership between governments and the private sector is crucial if we are to achieve our emission standards and climate change goals. A recently announced…
