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

Electric Car Fast Charging Is Evolving … Fast! Buckle Up & Listen To #Electrifying Webinar With EVgo

The electric car market is on a continuous growth curve in the United States as elsewhere.

Meanwhile, there are hundreds of thousands of Tesla Model 3 reservations waiting to be filled.

October 1st, 2017 | by Court Nederveld

What would it take to get a person to buy an electric car? The debate rages about range, environmental issues, performance, size, looks, and repair issues. All important topics, but what's occurred in just 5 years? In 2011 practically zero EVs were available. Five years later, Nissan has sold a quarter million, Tesla has roughly 200,000 sold and 500,000 ordered, and the Chevy Bolt appears to be selling about 1,000 a month. The Fiat 500E sells in the tens of thousands despite CEO Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' Chief Executive, Sergio Marchionne, begging people not to purchase his car. Don't even mention the EV capital of the world, China

Electric cars — great, fun, quick, clean, smooth, quiet, convenient to charge at home and work. But wait, what's life like with an electric car? How do you charge? Where do you charge? What do you need to charge? How do you protect the most valuable component of the car — the battery
