EV Manufacturers Join Forces to Advocate for Switch to Electric Vehicles

The past few years have seen increased interest in electric vehicles (“EVs”), especially as we become more aware of the effects of global warming and the role humans have played in heating up the planet. Transportation accounts for more than 24% of global carbon emissions, and several governments have announced initiatives designed to increase EV adoption over the next two decades and fully electrify our roads. For instance, in Europe, the UK, France, and Germany, and have set timelines for the ban of new fossil fuel vehicles; stateside, California has followed suit. A group of companies in the electric vehicle…

Research Finds That Only 8% of Brits Are Ready to Buy EVs

In a bid to reduce carbon emissions and the impact they have on the planet, several developed countries have announced plans to phase out internal combustion engine (“ICE”) automobiles in favor of electric vehicles (“EVs”) during the next decade or so. The UK has what is perhaps the most ambitious plan of all: to ban the sale of new fossil fuel vehicles by 2030 to help electrify roads across Britain. This would require automakers to stop selling new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030, allowing the sale of hybrid cars and vans that produce minimal emissions from their…

Switching to EVs Triggers Burst of Innovation in Manufacturing

In a bid to reduce carbon emissions and conserve the environment, several developed countries have pledged to phase out internal combustion engines for electric vehicles over the next decades. Powered by clean renewable energy and emitting zero emissions at the tailpipe, electric vehicles (“EVs”) are the perfect vehicle for a net-zero economy. Like the internet in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, EVs have completely disrupted the automotive industry, forcing players across the supply chain to either adapt with the times or be left behind. For instance, the emergence of EVs has seen a rise in the use of “skateboard”…

NASA Completes Propeller Test for Fully Electric Plane

With electric vehicles (“EVs”) poised to take over the roads in the next decade or two, there has been increased interest in electrifying other forms of transport. But with the EV industry still in its infancy, doing so in the near future may prove to be a challenge. Bill Gates famously claimed that electric trucks, cargo ships, and jets would “probably never” happen, but companies such as Rivian, BYD and Daimler Trucks, which are developing electric trucks, buses and vans, are proving that nothing is impossible in the EV space. Conversely, NASA has been working on an electric plane prototype,…

UK Regions Vie to Host First EV Battery Gigafactory

The race towards fully electrifying our roads is on, and the UK has announced one of the most ambitious plans for replacing conventional vehicles with electric vehicles (“EVs”). The UK government has announced that it plans to bring forward its ban on the sale of new internal combustion engine vehicles from 2040 to 2030 as it looks toward becoming a net-zero economy. As such, numerous regions have been vying for the honor of hosting the UK’s first gigafactory, which will manufacturer electric vehicle batteries. First popularized by American EV maker Tesla, a gigafactory is a large manufacturing facility that can…

3 EV Stocks That Could Challenge Tesla’s Dominance

For more than a decade, the only major player in the electric vehicle (“EV”) space has been Tesla. With an 81% market share in the United States and 15% globally, Tesla is arguably the largest EV company and the most valuable automaker on the globe. Valued at around $300 billion, Tesla surpassed established automakers such as Toyota, General Motors, Ford and Volkswagen. However, despite cornering the U.S. market, Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) may be facing steep competition in the future from the following EV stocks. NIO Inc. Like Tesla, NIO Inc. (NYSE: NIO) has cultivated a cult following by developing…

Electric Motorcycle Sets 11 World Records

The Voxan Wattman was made to break records, and on the morning of Oct. 31, it did just that. Italian rider Max Biaggi rode the bike at the Chateauroux airfield in France, breaking existing global records and setting 11 new ones. Designed by Monegasque electric motorcycle company Voxan, the Voxman Wattman is, in fact, three different bikes in standard, partly streamlined and streamlined form. The bike runs on a 15.9kWh battery that provides 317kW (425hp) of raw power, with dry ice being used to absorb the resultant heat and cool the bike. Instead of a front brake or a parachute,…

Switching to Sustainable Technologies Will Depend on Meticulous Planning

At the moment, many countries are pinning their plans of recovering from the pandemic-induced economic downturn on investments that will be directed towards developing or deepening green technologies, such as electric vehicles and renewable energy. However, the catchy phrases being flashed around will not help the world operate more sustainably if careful planning isn’t directed towards making the leap workable in the long term. For example, making the switch to renewable forms of energy, such as solar and wind energy, to quickly can leave economies at the mercy of the fickle weather. This could have devastating consequences when not enough…
