Yeah, but what’s the EV range?

Range anxiety is a pretty big sticking point when it comes to EVs. So much so, that we’re devoting an entire episode of the Amped EV Podcast to it. Range (or lack thereof) is what has stopped many an EV-driving would-be across the globe dead in their tracks. “No thanks,” they say. “If I can’t tote the family on vacation without stopping for a charge I don’t want it.” What we’ve discovered, though, is that in most cases, you really don’t need the range you think you do.

In this episode, we talk about some of the innovative ways OEMs are extending EV range for customers, how driver behavior affects EV range, how regenerative braking affects EV range and more.

Here are some of the stories we reference in the episode:
