5 EV Facts to Eliminate Your Range Anxiety

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 truth is, however, that scenario simply isn’t going to happen. Sure, if you drive far enough without charging, your car will die. Same thing with a gas car. And yes, there are more gas stations lining our streets than electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. But that doesn’t mean you’re more likely to run out of battery either.

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

Volvo also made headlines a few weeks ago, when they announced to exclusively make cars with only electric motors starting 2019. A bold call, which we hope will influence other car manufacturers in the next few years.

Bloomberg just bumped up its 2040 forecast for the global electric-car market share from 35% to 54%. Part of this probably resulted from those ambitious plans by France and UK: both countries will ban all petrol and diesel vehicle sales by 2040! It's safe to say that the era of electric mobility is upon us. So to kick off these electrifying times, we've made a shortlist of fully electric cars that'll hit the European and North American market before 2021.

3 Electric car incentives you need to know in Europe

Norway and The Netherlands are the undisputed kings of electric mobility. Together, they share a total number of over 240,000 electric vehicles on the road. Not a shocker, as Norway’s been ahead of the game since the 1990s, when it introduced the first electric-car incentives. As a result, half of all new vehicles in Norway are fully-electric or plug-in hybrids today. The Netherlands on the other hand, is the world’s most advanced in the implementation of electric public transportation and charging infrastructure. Dutch trains, subways and trams are 100% electric, and Dutch public charging points are fully powered by wind energy.Read more
