New EVs Can Be Filled Like an ICE Vehicle

Ally Winning, European Editor, PSD

­One of the biggest drawbacks of EVs is the time they take to charge. That problem increases as temperatures begin to drop. Most of us likely saw the photo of the group of Teslas abandoned at a charging station at the beginning of this year because their batteries wouldn’t hold charge. It is not a sight that
