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…

States Gear Up for Wireless Charging on Major Roads

More than a decade after the first modern electric vehicle (“EV”) hit the roads, the biggest issues facing the nascent EV sector are still insufficient public charging infrastructure and range anxiety. Compared to the ease and speed of refilling a gas-powered vehicle, charging EVs can be quite a hassle, and vehicles outside the Tesla ecosystem barely have a fast-charging infrastructure that can recharge an EV in less than an hour. As such, battery and automakers have been working on innovations designed to ease electric vehicle charging, especially during long trips, and boost the adoption of zero-emission EVs. Wireless charging is…

70-Plus Companies Urge Governors to Expedite Uptake of Fully Electric Trucks

After more than a century of industrialization, humanity now has to deal with the effects of burning fossil fuels and emitting greenhouse gases for centuries. Limiting fossil fuel use would be a great step toward curbing carbon emissions, and several territories across the world have pledged to replace the fossil fuel-powered vehicles on their roads with zero-emission electric vehicles (“EVs”). This hasn't been limited to just passenger cars, with some automakers and EV firms working on electrified models of trucks and public transit buses. Since the companies and municipalities that run bus and truck fleets tend to have enough money…

Experts Say Switching to EVs Could Signal End of Sedans

As Americans grow increasingly fond of sports utility vehicles (“SUVs”) and pickup trucks, the demand for sedans has declined significantly. Consequently, automakers have begun eliminating sedans from their lineups, with automakers such as Ford, Chrysler and Lincoln abandoning sedans years ago. As it stands, the Toyota Avalon, Volkswagen Passat and the Mazda 6 will be the next victims. But while the popularity of larger vehicles has pushed sedans into the background, some experts say it is the mass adoption of electric vehicles (“EVs”) that will finally push them out of the market. Thanks in part to more than a century…
