There is no doubt that electric vehicles are the future, as the way we get around and produce electricity is transitioning away from fossil fuels, and towards cleaner and greener alternatives. The entire transport sector accounts for 21% of total CO2 emissions and road travel alone accounts for 15% of total CO2 emissions so getting electric vehicles onto the roads is definitely a priority in tackling the climate crisis. However, they’re not perfect, and they are faced with obstacles that are stopping them from becoming mainstream.

      Yes, like people travelling with babies, people who need to carry a lot of equipment, the handicapped, the old… As a society we need cars. But there is still a big group of people who could use bicycles, if just a few things about the environment were tweaked.
