Climate change is accelerating.

More cars are on the road than ever before.

Internal combustion vehicles are accelerating the climate crisis

29% of greenhouse gas emissions are directly attributed to the transportation sector.

Most of these emissions are the result of internal combustion engines from passenger cars and light-duty trucks.

Current estimates of vehicles on the road worldwide topped 1 billion around 2010 and the World Economic Forum suggests that this number will reach 2 billion by 2040. With the UN report noting that greenhouse gas emissions have doubled since 1980, raising the average global temperature by 0.7 degrees Celsius, the negative impacts are expected to increase over the coming decades.

Electrification needs to happen

Driving electric vehicles is one of the easiest changes we can make to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Scientific reports continually find that EV's are responsible for lower emissions over their lifetime, regardless of the electricity generation source or the country in which the car manufactured.

As the adoption of EV's increases and battery technology improves, the environmental benefits associated with EV's compared to petrol and diesel-powered cars will continue to widen.

A cleaner future

Charge time is the last barrier remaining to owning an electric vehicle. Charging at home overnight isn’t always an option, and constantly breaking for an hour or more while on a road trip is incredibly inconvenient.

By enabling electric vehicles to charge as fast as it takes to fill up a tank of gas, we have the opportunity to change all of that. Join us in accelerating and broadening the deployment of electric vehicles, so that we can strengthen our environment together.
