Despite Increasing EV Charging Infrastructure, US Motorists Report Higher Dissatisfaction Rates

A national transition from ICE cars to battery electric cars will require significant government and private investment in public charging infrastructure. The automotive industry has had more than a century to build out a widespread network of easily accessible refueling stations compared to the relatively young EV industry. One main concern among drivers in the … Continue reading “Despite Increasing EV Charging Infrastructure, US Motorists Report Higher Dissatisfaction Rates”

EPA Drafts Tighter Emissions Controls to Boost Electric Vehicle Transition

The United States Environmental Protection Agency is anticipated to introduce tighter emissions controls to encourage significant reductions in emissions produced by motor vehicles as part of a strategy to encourage carmakers to significantly switch to electric cars. If these controls were to be put into effect, the light-duty cars with model years 2027–2032 are anticipated … Continue reading “EPA Drafts Tighter Emissions Controls to Boost Electric Vehicle Transition”

Declining Lithium Prices Trigger Reductions, Boost EV Affordability

The cost of lithium, a key element in all EV batteries, has significantly decreased, making electric vehicles relatively affordable. This is great news for consumers. However, experts differ on the duration for how long low costs will persist. Several observers were surprised by the sudden changes because they had assumed that the prices would remain … Continue reading “Declining Lithium Prices Trigger Reductions, Boost EV Affordability”
