EV Drivers — Who Are You? Why Are You? What’s Next?

May 12th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Since 2016, CleanTechnica has published annual reports on electric vehicle drivers, which electric vehicles (EVs) they drive, what they expect to buy or lease next, their charging experiences, what features they want in a vehicle, and more. This is fascinating stuff and we share the results with the CleanTechnica community after the full analysis is completed. It's time for another round of survey collection


Hyundai Kona EV Wins 2019 CleanTechnica Car of the Year Award

February 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

In our 2019 competition for the CleanTechnica Car of the Year, CleanTechnica staff lounging next to a rooftop pool on top of a luxury hotel (... or just sitting on our computers from the banal surroundings of our own homes ...) came up with a list of the 5 new vehicles most likely to have a positive effect on society. We then put that list of vehicles out in front of your eyeballs to choose a winner, via a simple one-question survey


Electric Car Tipping Point Is At Hand

February 1st, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Could 2018 go down in history as the beginning of the end for fossil-powered vehicles? Several auto industry analysts quoted in a recent Financial Times article (via The Drive) think it’s a possibility. “We will probably see the peak of combustion engine car sales in 2018,” Felipe Munoz, an automotive analyst for Jato Dynamics, told FT, adding that his company’s 'optimistic' forecast for the global auto market had changed in the last six months."

January 27th, 2019 | by Andy Miles

From my own experience, I would say that it is definitely the case that electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming more popular in the UK.

Recently published studies from the UK’s Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) revealed that as many as 97% of active auto mechanics aren’t qualified to work on electric cars. Worse, of that 3% of auto mechanics who are qualified, the vast majority of them are employed at manufacturer dealerships, presenting prospective EV buyers with very limited service options


10 Charts: Top Electric Car Benefits & Top Misconceptions
