Making Electric Mobility Practical for All
Today, road vehicles cause around 27% of US CO2 emissions and consume about half of the oil we use, so it’s no surprise that most conversations about the environment focus on going electric. But accessibility is often left out of the conversation—while there’s been an increase in EV adoption, in 2021, 98% of EVs bought were luxury vehicles, and 98% of EV purchasers had two other vehicles. Meanwhile, electric ride-hailing and micromobility options like scooters have been left out of the conversation, and charging stations are limiting drivers to go where they please. Founders from Shift, Indigo Technologies, and Veo will discuss the challenges bringing EVs to the masses, and how, by combining different types of affordable mobility, we can make sustainable transportation accessible to all.
