Jack Kerfoot is an energy expert, scientist, and the author of FUELING AMERICA: An Insider’s Journey. With momentum building among automakers and government officials for electric vehicles as a means of combating climate change, he will discuss for your listeners what needs to happen for EVs to outsell combustion vehicles in the U.S.
The infrastructure bill that President Joe Biden signed into law included funding for EV chargers and charging stations, but some consumers are concerned about inconvenience and whether their vehicles would take too long to recharge.
“The main issue with electric cars is charging time and charging station availability,” Kerfoot says. “But new battery technology is evolving rapidly. Several companies claim they have e-car batteries that can be fully charged in less than 10 minutes.
“When you get quick-charging e-cars you will see gas stations on the major interstates add charging stations, which will open up e-cars’ ability to drive coast to coast.”
