From Range Anxiety To Gas Station Anxiety?

December 13th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

One of CleanTechnica's first rate, well written, most fascinating articles this year was one by Maarten Vinkhuyzen, who wrote, "A perfect storm is brewing above the automotive industry. Three hardly grasped phenomena are working together. Just like a real storm, when the conditions align in the best/worst way, we get a devastating superstorm. These phenomena (or events) are the Osborne effect of delayed demand, the technology (cost) curve of battery prices and other technology, and the S-curve that describes market acceptance of new technologies."

Is Kitty Hawk Introducing Range Anxiety For eVTOL Aircraft With Its Heaviside?

October 12th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

We finally heard about Kitty Hawk's "secret project," which sports the strange name of Heaviside. It introduces the notion of range for an electric vertical take-off & landing (eVTOL) aircraft. The demonstration of the aircraft flying is fantastic but I wonder if we're about to witness another "range anxiety" war between eVTOL manufacturers? Let's hope not

Does Range Anxiety Affect Gas Car Drivers More Than Tesla Drivers?

July 18th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Editor's note: Aside from the points made in the article below, something that I think non-Tesla drivers can't appreciate (until they experience it in a Tesla) is Tesla's navigation system for road trips. The brilliant navigation system plans out your trip and tells you where to charge and for how long. I drove a Model S from Poland to Paris and back, and my conclusion after (or during) the trip was that this navigation system actually made the journey simpler and less stressful than it would have been in a gasoline or diesel vehicle

8 Keys To Eliminating EV Range Anxiety On Long Road Trips (Part 3)

September 29th, 2018 | by Loren McDonald

Road trips are a make or break factor for mass adoption of electric vehicles in the US. Unlike much of Europe and many other parts of the world, the US does not have a train system that connects most cities in the country (Amtrak in the Northeast being an exception). As such, most Americans either fly or rely on their cars when they go on vacation to Disneyland or Disney World, to visit relatives a few states away, or to take their child to college hundreds of miles away

Nanoengineered EV Batteries Zap Range Anxiety

November 8th, 2011 | by Silvio Marcacci

Range anxiety, or concerns about how far electric vehicles will travel on a single charge, is one of the biggest limitations facing the EV industry. In fact, a recent survey said only 20 percent of American drivers would consider buying an EV with a 100-mile range. But what if EVs could drive 500 miles on a single charge? That’s exactly what one of America’s most innovative companies is working on. energyNOW! correspondent Josh Zepps looked under the hood of a next generation battery design that uses nanotechnology to make EVs more powerful than ever

Danish Startup Creates Full Suspension 400-Mile Range Electric Tadpole Trike, The VELOKS MK3

June 7th, 2018 | by Jesper Berggreen

This is by far the most extreme range I have heard of on a bike. My own long-wheelbase with a 1 kWh Li-polymer battery has a range of about 100 miles at 20 mph, but the VELOKS MK3 can be fitted with a 4 kWh battery pack, thus extending the range to an insane 400 miles! That's my own daily commute for 10 days straight without charging!

The 10 Electric Cars With Most Driving Range

December 24th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

A lot has changed since I first compiled a list of the 11 electric cars with the most range. Most of those cars no longer make the list. Furthermore, there are a handful of affordable electric cars that have jumped into the high-range bracket. Have a look below (and compare to that 2015 list) for more details
