Electric Cars – Driverless Cars – Personal Mobility

Reference

If my predictions are correct, by 2025 almost everyone buying a new car should be buying an EV. Does this mean "range anxiety" is a thing of the past, or at least, will be a thing of the past by 2025?

This is a look at what range anxiety actually is, and the reality of EV range, and whether we need the same range from an EV as from a fossil fuel car, because, lets face it, while range is getting closer, most EVs, unlike the Lightyear One pictured here that can run on solar power, still don't match the range of internal combustion engine cars.

This page is a reference for recharging electric vehicles, both now and in the future. Refuelling EVs, as discussed elsewhere, provides a more familiar experience, but recharging comes with its own perhaps surprising benefits, plus, it costs less.

Infrastructure to allow refuelling EVs is growing, but with EVs, recharging most likely remain more popular, the understanding and right preparation for recharging is advised well before getting an EV in order to fully benefit.

I have been exploring electric vehicles. What is needed to make them affordable, and what it is like to live with them. When exploring charging, the charging systems became so complex that I have extracted what I found as its own exploration, which I plan to keep updated as a reference. It currently does need an update for wireless charging, but some information can be found on my exploration of the logistics of charging.

EV Batteries Reference: Benefits & Battery Technologies.

Batteries for EVs have progressed from being very expensive even while delivering an impractical range, to less expensive with a just acceptable range. Only now are batteries showing signs they can soon enable price completive EVs with a range that inspires confidence.
