Subsidies Make Some Electric Vehicles Nearly Free in Germany

With most developed countries looking to a carbon emission-free future, electric vehicles (“EVs”) have emerged as the next phase of vehicular travel. Powered by clean, renewable energy and with zero emissions, and cheaper to run and maintain in the long run compared to traditional vehicles, electric cars play a huge role in reducing how much carbon is produced on our roads. However, the initial purchase price of most EV models prevents a large chunk of the population from going green. To combat this barrier to widespread EV adoption, several governments have created subsidy programs to make electric vehicles more affordable.…

As we electrify our roads, the auto vehicle industry faces the same disruptions. Without a doubt, electric vehicles represent the next frontier of vehicular travel. As most governments look towards net zero economies, electric…

Professor Acquires $1M Grant to Develop Superior EV Battery

Most developed countries plan to phase out traditional carbon fuel-powered vehicles for electric vehicles (“EVs”) over the next decade or two. As EVs run on clean, renewable energy, they produce zero emissions, which is in line with the governments’ long term plans to reduce carbon emissions. However, despite being relatively cheaper to fuel (charge) and maintain than traditional vehicles, most of the EVs on the market are way too expensive for the average consumer. So, even if they wish to switch over to clean energy, a large chunk of the population simply cannot afford it. To make them more affordable,…
