US states have been funded to build interstate EV charging infrastructure

Up until now, the US has been lagging many other developed countries when it comes to EV adoption. In 2021 it was estimated that only 4% of US vehicles are plug-in EVs, while that number is 19% in Europe. While other countries are committed to phase out the sale of internal combustion engined (ICE) vehicles ov

The Hummer EV

The incentives to get an electrical vehicle are pretty obvious. You help the environment by not using dirty fossil fuels and save money on cheaper running and maintenance costs, even as electricity prices rise, savings can still be significant.

Honda to Release 10 Electric Motorcycles within 5 Years...but not in the U.S.

­I’ve got news and bad news for bikers with a green streak — Honda is set to release 10 electric motorcycles by 2025. But most of them won’t be available in the U.S. I’ve no idea why Honda’s focusing its EV strategy almost exclusively on European and Asian markets, but America’s relatively low EV

China sets Phase-Out Date for Gas-Only Vehicles in its Southernmost Province

Hainan, China, the PRC's smallest and southernmost province, has set a phase-out date for pure internal combustion engine vehicles of 2030.

­China might be the world’s bigger polluter – with more than double the CO2 emissions of the next-closest country, the U.S. – but they’re taking steps, however meager, to rectify that. Kinda. In one very specific way. The People’s Republic has set an official phase-out date for the pure internal combustion engine in H

EV Platform Achieves 0-100km/h in Under 2 secs and 400kmh
Much of our previous automotive innovation comes from the world of Formula 1. Williams is one of the foremost Formula 1 teams and has been at a leader in automotive technology for many years. That experience makes any announcement on new products interesting by itself. If the news is of an high-performance electric

How will the CHIPS and Science Act Help Counter China?

Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo was a key proponent of the CHIPS and Science Act.

­The passage of the gargantuan Inflation Reduction Act has overshadowed a more modest piece of legislation that’s more directly relevant to our industry, and I’d like to take a look at the latter — the Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors for America Act (aka, the CHIPS and Science Act).
