Without More On-Street Access to Charging, We’re Never Going To Make EVs Mainstream.

From Transport Evolved.

Many countries around the world are pushing to ban the sale of new internal combustion engine vehicles within the next ten to twenty years. And while we support the overall goal of ending ICE vehicle sales, there’s a missing link that many legislatures are failing to make: on-street charging for those with no off-street charging provision.

Luckily, Seattle, and some other cities are making steps to solve that… but as we’re about to explain, this is a global problem that requires a global effort to solve.
