Think twice before you get that petrol car

The growth of the electric car industry today is much like how WiFi emerged a few decades ago. In the beginning, only a handful of leaders had the courage to offer the technology. But soon, other telecom companies had to keep up and provide WiFi too. More and more players joined the market until suddenly (or so it seemed) everyone was offering WiFi to act on the competition and accommodate the demand.

The eMobility industry is on a similar path and can learn from the moral of this story. Companies should have the guts to become leaders in electric mobility from the start, and take advantage of that wealthy, early adopter market. Sooner or later, everyone will have to make the transition to electric transportation anyway.

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

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. In the past few months, we’ve seen a slight increase in search popularity, yet it hasn’t managed to reach the peak of 2008. What happened here is that, back in 2008, there was no mass market for electric cars, nor adequate charging infrastructure. But over the years, the search interest has become more “serious”. A search term like “electric car charging” has been gaining popularity since 2012, just two years after we embarked on our journey to bring charging solutions to every EV driver across the world. 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
