American Automakers Criticize New EV Bill

Several American automakers are displeased with a proposed electric vehicle (“EV”) bill that would make unionized automakers eligible for extra electric vehicle subsidies. A few days ago, the Democrats proposed an updated version of the current EV incentives program that would remove the limit on the number of vehicles a single automaker can sell with subsidies and introduce a higher payout of up to $12,500, with unionized automakers that produce electric vehicles and trucks locally being eligible for an additional $4,500 subsidy. The bill has been roundly criticized by Tesla, Toyota Motors and other auto companies that will miss out…

BYD Looks Set to Revolutionize Public Transport

Electric vehicles (“EVs”) are poised to take over the world’s roads in the coming decades, replacing internal combustion engine vehicles and helping nations cut down on their carbon emissions. However, although several governments around the world have been pushing for residents to ditch their fossil fuel-powered vehicles for zero-emission electric cars, car owners have been slow to adopt EVs due to a variety of reasons. Some experts say that fleets, rather than passenger vehicles, will be the catalyst for mass EV adoption, and automakers and authorities should include these prospects in their electrification plans. One company that seems to have…

How to Keep an EV Trouble-Free

Thanks to more than a century of industrialization and human-caused global warming, zero-emission electric vehicles (“EVs”) are poised to become the dominant vehicles on our roads as large sections of the world grapple with extreme heat and blistering cold. Transportation accounts for a large percentage of total carbon emissions, making electric vehicles, which are powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries rather than internal combustion engines, a great way to curb greenhouse emissions from the sector. However, EVs are an entirely different beast from the vehicles we have become accustomed to, and taking care of one will require a much more different…

Democrats Table Enhanced Federal EV Rebate Plan

Ever since President Joseph Biden assumed office, his administration has made it clear that electrifying America’s roads will be a top priority. Biden spent his first months in office working on and subsequently unveiling a gargantuan infrastructure bill that would invest billions of dollars into beefing up the country’s woefully inadequate electric vehicle (“EV”) public charging infrastructure. This was followed by a recent announcement by the White House stating that the government was looking to achieve 50% electric vehicle sales by 2030 in a bid to meet emission standards. Now the Democrats, who have a majority in both the House…

Five Benefits of Electrifying Commercial Vehicle Fleets

A large portion of the world is quite keen on replacing fossil fuel vehicles with zero-emission electric vehicles (“EVs”) amid the increasingly apparent effects of climate change and global warming. Although several territories have pledged to steadily reduce internal combustion engine (“ICE”) vehicle sales over the next few decades, EV adoption is still significantly low. Electric vehicles tend to be too expensive for the average consumer, and charging can be quite a hassle thanks to an insufficient and often unreliable public charging network, hindering the adoption of passenger electric vehicles by individual drivers. Fleets, however, can avoid these pitfalls thanks…

Wireless Charging Has Potential to Speed Up EV Uptake

Electric vehicles (“EVs”) have been crowned as the successor of the internal combustion engine vehicles, which have dominated the roads for more than a century. Climate change and global warming have necessitated the switch from fossil fuel-powered cars to zero-emission electric cars, and several territories around the world have issued mandates to ensure this transition happens over the next couple of decades. However, one issue that has consistently stood in the way of mass EV adoption and is poised to be a major problem moving forward is EV charging. America’s public EV charging infrastructure is insufficient and  unreliable; in addition,…

Mercedes Benz Unveils EV Lineup Ahead of IAA Mobility Show

With territories around the world looking to replace the fossil-fueled cars on their roads with zero-emission electric vehicles (“EVs”), a ton of EV startups have thrown their hat into the ring. German automotive brand Mercedez-Benz is the latest company to announce plans to jump into the deep end of the burgeoning electric vehicle space. Tesla has been the most successful so far, but legacy automakers such as Mercedes, Ford, Volkswagen and Volvo, which have decades of experience, have been giving the California-based EV pioneer a run for its money. As part of its years long plan to become an all-electric…

How to Use a DC Fast EV Charger

With several territories around the world set on replacing fossil fuel cars on their roads with electric vehicles (“EVs”) over the next few decades, we’re going to see a lot more public electric vehicle charging stations. EVs are powered by rechargeable lithium-ion battery packs, and unlike conventional vehicles that can be fully fueled in just a couple of minutes, recharging an electric vehicle to 100% can take quite a while, depending on the type of charger used. Of the nearly 50,000 public chargers that make up America’s charging infrastructure, only 5,000 are Level 1 fast chargers that can charge an…
