Research by the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Vehicle Technologies Office estimates the cost of an electric vehicle lithium-ion battery pack declined 87% between 2008 and 2021 (using 2021 constant dollars). The 2021 estimate is $157/kWh on […]
“The United States has the critical mass of expertise in batteries, aviation, propulsion, and system integration to invent the power source for the next 100 years of aviation,” the white paper concludes.
To underscore the importance of EVs in the economy, public health, and environment, National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) – which was created a decade ago to drive awareness about EVs – is being held this year from September 25 to October 3.
The traffic decline associated with the pandemic resulted in only half as much fuel being wasted in 2020 compared to 2019.
A new Argonne study offers the most complete understanding yet of the costs of owning and operating a vehicle and how those costs vary by powertrain, from the conventional to the cutting-edge. Advanced vehicle technologies are […]
