How much range do people need? Various studies have jumped into this topic, but I don’t recall seeing anyone survey electric car drivers themselves. So, in our new 93-page electric car driver report, we asked different types of EV drivers across two continents what their range requirements and expectations were for their next EVs.

I gave a presentation in March in Amsterdam (Holland) at EV-Box’s first annual rEVolution summit. When creating my presentation, I decided to dive into a theme that I’ve been increasingly compelled to present on — how do you communicate electric transport to “outsiders” in the most effective way?
Once upon a time, there was an epic monthly sales battle in the US between the Nissan LEAF and the Chevy Volt. They were neck and neck for ages, sometimes changing places several months in a row. Nowadays, the market is growing, and more relevant is probably looking at the Chevy Bolt, Chevy Volt, Ford […]
Aside from Tesla topping the US electric car sales chart (and my postulations about that), there were some other interesting stats and takeaways from March US electric car sales. The first big one that stands out to me is that the Nissan LEAF freakin’ beat the Chevy Bolt! I don’t think any of our readers would have […]
Rolling through another month of US electric car sales, I’m struck again by how much a few models dominate sales. Actually, I’m struck by how much Tesla’s two high-end (expensive) cars dominate US electric car sales. Before I go further, I should note that Tesla’s sales numbers are not official — they are estimated based on […]
As you probably read in recent weeks, I was one of the keynote speakers at EV-Box’s inaugural rEVolution summit, which took place yesterday in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I noticed ahead of time that the inspiring Engie exec Thierry Lepercq — Executive Vice President in charge of Research, Technology, and Innovation — was going to be one of the […]
Also published on CleanTechnica. See our Electric Car Sales page for a deeper look at US, European, and Chinese electric car sales. US electric car sales jumped approximately 68% in February 2017 vs February 2016. Fully electric car sales were up 74%, while plug-in hybrid sales were up 61%. For the first two months of the year, that puts […]
Originally published on the EV-Box/rEVolution blog. I’ve been covering the electric vehicle industry obsessively for several years now. I’ve published thousands of articles on this tech. Yet, a few old articles from years ago still stand out to me and often come to mind. I had been covering electric vehicles (EVs) for quite a while before I actually […]
The rEVolution will not be televised …
but it will be blogged and perhaps Facebook livestreamed.
Multiple people have asked me to chime in on the Elon Musk and Donald Trump “partnership.” The requests have popped up for months. I’ve also noticed a lot of commentary — on Twitter, here on CleanTechnica, and elsewhere — that implies Elon has turned evil or is sacrificing his morals by working with Trump.
US electric car sales continue to climb to new heights in 2017. Growing 59% year over year (YoY), approximately 12,000 electric cars were sold across the country in January, accounting for approximately 1% of US auto sales.
Back in August 2014, I polled CleanTechnica readers on when an electric car would break into the top 20 of US car sales. The specific question was, “When will a plug-in car break into the top 20 of monthly US car sales?”
2016 was a pretty huge year for cleantech, but I think it was more like a foundation-laying year, whereas 2017 and 2018 will be the breakout years in which we start seeing the walls of the beautiful cleantech transition that foundation is going to support. (Building-integrated solar PV walls with EV charging plugs, of course.)
Originally published on CleanTechnica. As the cleantech transition speeds up, many of us are jumping for joy. Trump may be king of tweetland, but he and his oil & gas buddies can’t stop renewables or electric robotaxis. They know that. Their goals are pretty clear, though: pump up the carbon bubble as much as possible, stuff […]
To be fair, we don’t yet know what Donald Trump’s precise climate approach will be, but it seems all but guaranteed that he will slow and obstruct climate action and will do a “great deal” to increase pollution and CO2 emissions from the out-of-date oil, coal, and gas industries.
Originally published on CleanTechnica. By James Ayre & Zach Shahan How many electric vehicles will be sold in the US during 2017? Will Chevy Bolt EV sales grow rapidly following nationwide availability in the late summer? What about Toyota Prius Prime sales (if Toyota ever works out its dealership issues)? What will happen with the Tesla […]
Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources, Khalid A. Al-Falih, who is also chairman of Saudi Aramco, the world’s “most valuable” company, was interviewed in Abu Dhabi for Global Action Day last week. I happened to be in attendance and captured Al-Falih making some “interesting” comments.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) seems like an ideal place for Tesla Motors. Clearly, the country has money, and people with money can afford Teslas — which nearly everyone seems to want. Additionally, UAE leadership — despite making a fortune and a half on oil & gas — seems to be keenly aware that the future is cleantech, and the future is coming faster than a Tesla Model S P100D.
