New Analysis Shows EVs Less EcoFriendly to Make Prove Sustainability Credentials in a Year

Electric vehicles (“EVs”) are poised to play a significant role in transportation as numerous countries around the world strive to cut down their greenhouse gas emissions. Unlike conventional diesel-powered vehicles, electric cars rely on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and an electric motor rather than an internal combustion engine. By eliminating fossil fuels, electric vehicles produce minimal emissions at the tailpipe, making them the perfect vehicle for a green economy. According to a new study, however, electric vehicles aren’t as carbon free as many people may think. The analysis found that compared to diesel- and petrol-powered cars, producing electric vehicles is…

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ: GT) Unveils Tire Model Designed for Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles (“EVs”) will be a force to reckon with in the next couple of decades. Since they produce zero emissions at the tailpipe, EVs are the perfect vehicle for an economy that prizes sustainable energy and minimizes waste. At the moment, however, they comprise less than 2% of global car sales. Despite the role electric vehicles are projected to play in the future of transportation, the technology is still relatively new. For instance, did you know tire considerations are different when it comes to EVs? With a traditional gas-powered car, the goal is to find a tire that can…

Game On in Race for Top Spot in the EV Industry

Electric vehicles (“EV”) may be a relatively new technology, but EVs are poised to take over the transportation sector over the next couple of decades. With a large section of the world hell-bent on reducing emissions from the transportation sector, we are looking at a future where a large chunk of the cars on the road are zero-emission EVs. For the past decade or so, Tesla has been the most dominant EV maker in the game, proving that it’s possible to develop and mass produce electric cars, and selling more EVs than any other company. However, Tesla may not be…

2022 Looks Set to Build on 2021 EV Sector Success

The past couple of years have been great for the nascent electric vehicle (“EV”) sector. Despite the emergence of a global pandemic coupled with a financial downturn, 2020 saw consumers around the world buy and register 3 million EVs, a 41% improvement in electric vehicle sales from 2019. As 2021 rolled in, market enthusiasm for zero-emission vehicles grew even more as established automakers unveiled plans to electrify their vehicle lineups and the federal government passed resolutions that would increase the adoption of these vehicles. President Joseph Biden based part of his campaign on electrification and clean energy, and as soon…

Georgia Offers Record-Setting Incentive Package to Rivian Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: RIVN)

The race to complete electrification is heating up. While electric vehicle (“EV”) startups such as Tesla showed the world that it was possible to mass produce zero-emission electric cars, the nascent EV market is now seeing an influx of competition from startups such as Rivian Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: RIVN) as well as established carmakers. Rivian recently went public in one of the largest IPOs in history and achieved a valuation of more than $100 billion. The California-based electric truck maker is now working on its first electric offerings, including the electric Rivian R1T pickup truck, which will hit the market…

NYPD Considers Buying 250 Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) Electric Vehicles

If Bloomberg is to be believed, the NYPD may have joined the growing number of police departments across the country that are considering adding electric vehicles (“EVs”) to their fleets. President Joe Biden recently announced via an executive order that the entire federal fleet is to be fully electrified over the next few decades, completely eliminating the purchase of new internal combustion cars by 2035. The order required that every federal agency with at least 20 cars develop a strategy to electrify their fleets and update it annually. Although this order doesn’t include state and city police departments, several of…

Department of Homeland Security Prepares to Test Mustang Mach-E as Police Vehicle

Electric vehicles (“EVs”) manufactured by established automakers are poised to play a significant role in the proliferation of EV technology. Unlike EV startups that have to build everything from the ground up, established automakers such as Ford already have facilities, skilled manpower and connections along the supply chain. This allows them to hit the ground running once they decide to start building electric cars. Ford, for instance, introduced the Mustang Mach-E in November 2019 and began selling the premium EV in December 2020. A year later, the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) has revealed that it will start testing the…

How to Retain EV’s Range During Extreme Cold Weather

There’s a learning curve when it comes to using electric cars. Rather than the internal combustion engines we are all used to, electric vehicles (“EV”) use rechargeable lithium-ion battery packs and electric motors to generate power and torque. The size of the battery pack will determine your EV’s range, as well as how much energy is stored when the vehicle is at rest and how much is fed to the motors once the car is in motion. With large parts of the country capable of reaching extremely low temperatures in the winter, new drivers will have to learn how to…

White House Unveils $7.5 Billion EV Charging Plan

President Joe Biden made electrification and clean energy key components while campaigning, and after a year in office, he is keeping his promises. Most experts agree that human activity is heating up the planet. Since transportation is responsible for a significant portion of greenhouse gas emissions, adopting zero-emission vehicle technology can help bring carbon emissions down. However, America’s electric vehicle (“EV”) sector is held back by insufficient EV charging infrastructure; most EV chargers are concentrated in urban areas, and the fastest ones are only accessible to Tesla owners. Biden’s administration has unveiled a plan that would finally see the president’s…
