IEA Predicts 145 Million EVs Sold Globally by 2030

After dominating the world's roads for more than a century, the era of internal combustion engines (“ICE”) is poised to end. In a bid to arrest the effects of runaway global warming, several countries have pledged to replace traditional vehicles with zero-emission electric vehicles (“EVs”) over the next decade. EVs currently comprise only a small portion of vehicles bought every year, with high costs and insufficient public chargers holding back mass EV adoption.

Improving Battery Technology Brings EV Prices Down

Several countries around the world are scrambling to replace their fossil-fuel-powered fleets with zero-emission electric vehicles (“EVs”) in a bid to halt runaway global warming before it's too late. Unfortunately, electric vehicles made up just 3% of all vehicles purchased in 2020, and the path to mass EV adoption is still plagued with a number of obstacles. The chief hindrance to mass EV adoption is price, with most electronic vehicle models costing much more than the average consumer can afford. However, industry projections say battery electric vehicles (“BEVs”) will become as affordable as internal-combustion engine (“ICE”) vehicles in the next…

Maine Unveils Seven DC Superchargers in Support of Transition to EVs

On April 26, Maine commissioned the seventh and last of its first phase of electric vehicle (“EV”) charger installations in a campaign that will see a network of these facilities installed by the state in strategic locations. This particular phase of charging units installed was mainly targeting busy routes that take travelers to winter ski resorts as well as highways that move motorists across state lines. These supercharger stations have the capacity to add approximately 250 miles worth of charge to a vehicle’s battery within an hour. Costing approximately $200,000 each, the charging stations don’t come cheap. However, Maine is…
