Enough with the Range Anxiety Already

Some electric car owners, or potential owners, have what is called “range anxiety.” Well, it's time to put such matters to rest.

The technology of batteries is advancing rapidly and range anxiety is about to disappear. Cars with enough battery power to go many hundreds of miles are on the horizon. Currently, most electric cars are range-limited to a few dozen miles (Tesla being a major exception, which is one reason their cars are so much in demand). But, new battery technology will be here soon such that a car with a thousand-mile range will be entirely feasible, although manufacturers may limit range to about 500 miles, about the distance an ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) vehicle can attain.

Stay tuned and read about it first right here.
