Survey Shows Americans Want EVs with 300-Mile Range

Last year, Bloomberg Green conducted a survey which established that only a paltry 10% of all Americans would be comfortable buying an e-vehicle whose range didn’t exceed 200 miles. While many people may be quick to criticize this preference exhibited by Americans, a deeper analysis shows that consumers are more acutely aware of a number of factors pertinent to their driving needs. For example, the average American travels 14,500 miles each year. This figure is approximately 33% higher than the average distance covered each year by motorists in other countries around the world. It would, therefore, be reasonable for Americans…

As More Carmakers Prefer Selling SUVs, Environmental Concerns Rise

A key component of President Joe Biden's strategy to address the climate catastrophe is electrifying the massive fleet of vehicles in the United States. This objective, however, is in danger of being undermined by the exploding size of EVs, which are displacing smaller, more cost-effective vehicles that use less of the environment's resources. In the past week, GM revealed that it would be ending production of the Chevy Bolt later this year. The Bolt is smaller and the most affordable of the greener electric vehicles available, with prices under $30,000. This price is in addition to qualifying for a $7,500…

Maserati Seeks to Stand Out by Making Exciting Electric Vehicles

In an interview with Dezeen, Maserati CEO Davide Grasso explained what the vehicle brand is doing to make sure its electric cars offer as good a driving experience as those powered by internal combustion engines. In response to a query from Dezeen, Grasso specifically addressed the idea that electric vehicles are less interesting than fossil-fuel-powered vehicles.
