  • The Tricky Balance Between EV Range and Cost Continues in 2018
    CNN last week declared that 2018 will be “the year of the electric car.” This proclamation happens nearly every year—despite the fact that electric cars remain about 1 percent of the new-car market. CNN rightly states, “Americans (in 2018) will finally be able to buy reasonably affordable and widely available electric cars that can hold enough power to breeze through their daily routines with no worries.” Perhaps the news organization is pointing to the new breed of longer-range EVs. But other signs indicate that we are more likely to see steady growth rather than a quantum leap in EV adoption.


  • Study: On Average, EV Fuel Costs Are Less Than Half Compared to Gas Cars
    Researchers from the University of Michigan published a study this week about the relative costs of driving an EV versus a gas car. While it’s widely accepted that a key advantage of a plug-in car is its use of cheap electric fuel, calculating exactly how much you will save is a tricky proposition. That’s because the cost of electricity can fluctuate depending on where you live, the time of day that you charge, and even the season. The Michigan study revealed that—on average and based on recent gas and electricity rates—owners of gas car pay 2.3 times more than EV drivers, representing average annual savings for electric cars of more than $600.
