Solving the biggest questions about future mobility

Would you rather have your pizza delivered by a drone or a self-driving car?

That’s how we broke the ice during EVS30 and eMove360 in Germany last month. The consensus was clear: people want a self-driving car with an actual person, who will be able to walk up the stairs, and bring the pizza right to their doorsteps. We were blown away by how people were actually thinking this through. But we weren’t expecting any less from these clean tech and electric vehicle experts. So, we fired off some more burning questions we thought they’d know how to answer best.Read more

A lot of potential electric vehicle drivers are paralyzed by the fear of their car’s battery dying mid-trip, leaving them stranded in the middle of nowhere.

The fact of the matter is, if you drive an average amount and can remember to charge your car at night, you will never run into a problem. Even still, that's not enough to convince some people. So, let’s run down the five biggest reasons you shouldn’t be anxious about switching to an electric car.Read more

The tipping point of electric mobility is here

The truth is, “electric cars” has always been a heavily Googled search term, whether it be those electric toy cars for the kids, or the grownup version. The search term hit its peak in 2008, right when Tesla launched its first electric car – the Tesla Roadster.

Fast forward to today, sixty electric cars later, the industry is speaking of a tipping point for electric mobility. And I have my reasons to believe that this is true.Read more
