Clean trucks such as the Tesla Semi are needed now more than ever. According to Popular Mechanics, in 2016, there were at least 2.8 million semi trucks registered in the US. Paul Billings from the American Lung Association told The New York Times, “Trucks remain a major source of pollution that creates smog, and smog is linked with coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and can cause asthma and premature death.”
Financing and clean energy leadership from companies such as Ideanomics* point toward a future of decreasing carbon emissions alongside reliable economic growth. Commercial EV conversion offers a way to significantly help the environment. It should be supported legislatively in order to smooth the necessary transition away from fossil fuels in every developed country in the world. China can lead the way
The Trump administration seems not to care that we are headed toward climate catastrophe with carbon dioxide pollution driving global average temperatures up some 6 degrees Fahrenheit (°F) and rendering places that hundreds of millions of people call home virtually unlivable. This monumental disregard for human health and well-being underpins the administration’s senseless rollback of clean car and fuel economy standards, being published today in the Federal Register
California regulators this week bolstered a proposed rule that would force automakers to sell more electric trucks.
We all tend to live in our own circle, our own world to some degree. Some of us are up to date on the transition to EVs and what is truly available, and some are missing that information. Thanks to CALSTART, there’s now a great new tool for finding out what is presently available in e-mobility
Since 2009, the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) and Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) have been working with the trucking industry to increase confidence in energy-efficient technologies and practices, as well as guiding fleets as they adopt disruptive new technologies
I’m not sure all of these awards actually exist. It’s possible some of them (ahem, #9) should have never been imagined. Nonetheless, this is what some Thanksgiving-night brain juice has dreamt up about the Tesla Cybertruck after reading about the Tesla Model 3 winning Car of the Year in Denmark
A comparison between the Tesla Model S, Tesla Cybertruck, and Porsche Taycan was created in an infographic shared by Twitter user Serious Callers Only. The comparison shows the difference not just in price range for these three electric vehicles, but also range and acceleration. It shows that the Cybertruck is the lowest priced of the three. That is despite its enormous size and range
When will these near- and zero-emissions (NZ and ZE) technologies become the new norm? All signs point to 2025.
