White House Guarantess Loans For EV Chargers

The Obama administration has stepped up in its waning days and contributed to the EV movement. By announcing a new federal loan guarantee for EV charging stations, coupled with regulations and partnerships made by several of the industry's top producers, a solid groundwork has been laid for a boom in infrastruture over the next few years. The key is for all of these industry players to take full advantage of the incentives that have been put in front of them. Now is the time for action!

EV Road Trips:

Taking long road trips in an EV will soon be a reality - but not yet. It is feasible to do so already, but the lack of a solid infrastructure when it comes to reliable dc fast-charging stations is still holding us back.

Choosing to take an EV on your road trip will not only tack on plenty of time to your route, but it also requires extensive planning to make sure you don't find yourself powerless with no charging stations near you.

The fact that it is possible at all, however, shows that we are headed in the right direction. Technological advances coupled with a focus on the improvement of infrastructure will lead to cross-country EV trips being as common as anything else.

Who Needs Marketing?

"If you build a truly revolutionary product, the marketing will take care of itself." - Elon Musk has managed to create some pretty unimaginable discrepencies between the amount of money he spends on advertising compared to his competitors in the auto industry. 

By focusing solely on the quality of the product, Tesla has bypassed the need for expensive marketing campaigns and provides a highly transparent business model for its customers. It has also managed to brand itself as the "future" - making it almost impossible for the public to ignore. 

A new precedent has been set for the world of marketing and we can expect to see the effects of this throughout many other large-scale production industries.

Saying Goodbye to Diesel.

Toyota is taking a step in the right direction as it intends to stop investing in diesel fuel entirely. Options like these seem drastic and economically inefficient in the short term - but for a revolution of infrastructure to take place there needs to be noticeable changes made. This means that other manufacturers should take note of Toyota's move and consider making a similar effort. If every producer decided to shift away from fossil fuels (as they will all inevitably have to), the transition could be made less painful for everyone.

There have been several instances in history where a single product opened an entirely new market for itself, while simultaneously shutting the door on another. The Tesla Model 3 is now in line to do the same thing - as long as the EV industry itself is able to hold up in the coming years. This means that if we are going to predict that Model 3 sales will usurp gas vehicles entirely, there has to be more than just a willing customer base. Once all of these cars have been purchased, there needs to be system in place for efficiently charging all of them. If there is no infrastructure, it will be a disaster as people scramble to find an open station.

It would be a shame if some of the money given back by VW wasn't used as a catalyst in the green revolution. The EV infrastructure of this country is lacking and this could be the start of a solution - handed to us on a silver platter, no less.  

Everyone has their own ideas as to what the future of automotive infrastructure will look like. In this article Tesla tries to paint a picture of what they think the future holds for the modern gas station - and how it will likely not be selling gas! In order for the clean energy movement to gain traction, the infrastructure must be the main target.
