“2022 is shaping up to be a good time to buy an EV,” says a recent article on CarsDirect.com. “A combination of increased range, lower prices, and more electric car models… make buying or leasing an EV a better choice than in years past.” We couldn’t agree more. We’re genuinely enthused by many of the new EVs that manufacturers have been touting online and at car shows. And not just because they look like the ultra-cool, hyper-sleek transports of the future we dreamed about driving when we were kids. No, we’re also pumped because many models will debut with trailblazing new features that are sure to encourage greater participation in electric mobility, the cornerstone of our mission.

The electric tide is coming. From our vantage point on shore, we can see the wave of innovation barreling toward us, ready to crest at any moment, bringing with it game-changing new methods of mobility that are more efficient, sustainable and better for the environment. From Lexus’s recent announcement to go all-electric in the next eight years to Hertz’s trailblazing deal to purchase 65,000 Polestar EVs to the federal government’s five billion dollars in funding through the NEVI Formula Program, the flood of electrified transport will be swift and incontrovertible. However, naysayers who have hooked their (gas-powered) wagons to the dying tech of fossil fuel-based ICEs still abound, with such stubbornness likely to result in them becoming fossils themselves as the rest of the world evolves around them. Many cite a litany of pain points, whether real or perceived, in explaining their reticence to go electric while, unbeknownst to them, EVCS has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to turn that pain into gain. How so, you ask? Below are four of the top pain points cited by EV critics and what we’re doing to relegate them to the dustbin of history.
With that, we’re proud to announce our featured site for February 2022: a brand-new, redesigned charger complete with iKahan digital billboards at the Sierra Commons Shopping Center in the city of Palmdale north of Los Angeles.
According to a recent article in Forbes, Americans will purchase approximately two million EVs in 2022. Dr. Shelley Francis, co-founder, and director of EVHybridNoire notes that demand is increasing “as public perception of the technology shifts from novelty to mainstream,” thanks primarily to the plethora of new EV models hitting the market and a rapid expansion of infrastructure spearheaded by network operators like EVCS.
Ten years ago no one would’ve thought that electric vehicles would be in the spotlight. Sales of EVs went up during 2021, reaching their highest ever point. Every year more drivers are willing to give electric cars a chance and wonder how to charge an EV, and where to do it. That’s when single-phase and three-phase power comes into the picture. Electric vehicles use batteries to run and those batteries need to get recharged. Chargers can either use alternate current (AC) or direct current (DC). Alternate current has two classifications: single-phase, where power flows through a single conductor; and three-phase power, in which the power flows through three different conductors.

If you’re seriously thinking about switching from your conventional car to an electric one, you’ve probably already asked yourself: “How do you charge an electric car at home?” The first thing to know about how you charge an electric car at home is that the chance to “refill” your electric vehicle at home is an advantage when compared to conventional gas-powered cars. Every EV comes with a standard 110V connection kit, known as a Level 1 charger. They take up to 24 hours to charge a conventional EV battery to its full capacity. So the answer to the question “can you charge an electric car at home?” is yes, of course, you can! Types of electric vehicle chargers There are... Read More
The electric vehicle era has arrived. Many drivers are choosing EVs instead of regular vehicles and thus, the EV charging demand is on the rise. You’d probably already heard about this, and if you’re a business owner, you may be wondering if you can become a charging point business and how is the EV charger installation done.
The electric vehicle (EV) industry keeps growing and driving massive changes in the automotive industry. Every year, more drivers choose to switch to an EV, this is the reason why these types of vehicles are becoming more common. With more people choosing an electric vehicle, more EV chargers are needed to make sure that everybody finds the nearest charging station.
