Though EV demand is growing, range anxiety remains a concern

This story from upi.com illustrates the growth of electric vehicles (EVs)

Feb. 21 (UPI) — After a forecast for gains in deployment, feedback from a forum by a state public service commission found range anxiety for electric vehicles was a concern. British energy company BP reported in an annual forecast that it expected 180 million electric vehicles on the world’s roads by 2035. That’s expected to crimp global oil demand in the coming years as about 30 percent of total miles driven in 2040 will be fueled by electricity. From Michigan, one of the leading domestic centers for the automotive industry, a technical conference held by the state Public Service Commission found concerns in 2018 required forward-thinking mitigation efforts to address range anxiety, accessibility and public charger visibility. Last year, the governors of Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming signed a memorandum of understanding that envisions an Intermountain West Electric Vehicle Corridor “that will make it possible to seamlessly drive an electric vehicle” across the major transportation corridors of the parties involved.
