I write frequently about various electric vehicles and related subjects. Currently the most popular types of road-going electric vehicle are battery electric vehicles (BEVs). These are very practical for most applications, being extremely cost-effective and reliable. However, there is one class of consumer that may have an issue, those prone to take extended road trips.
The range of current state-of-the-art BEVs is 300 to 400 miles, furthermore there are many charging stations along most highways. But road trips are frequently longer than 300 miles, and note the “most”. Even in BEV-crazy California, I have noted some areas where there are few charging facilities, and those that exist have limited capabilities.
The above describes a problem and an opportunity.
I seem to be settling in to around monthly “EV…” posts. One excuse for this post was a good article from Forbes on new EVs from next year and later.
