The future of driving is electric, here's why

They’ve become a mainstream part of the collective consciousness of the automobile world in recent years, mostly thanks to their surge in popularity and the focus on government policy that’s effectively banning fossil fuel vehicles.

Range anxiety is complex and “fixing” it requires a comprehensive multilateral solution.
