Australia has unveiled plans to help boost the adoption of electric vehicles by organizing an "electric highway" which allows travelers to charge their vehicles quickly. Use of the road and chargers will be free to encourage use.
Electrical vehicles (EVs) are the next evolution in personal transportation. A large-scale shift toward the technology has the potential to significantly reduce the environmental impact of simply getting around, leaving our reliance on gas powered vehicles behind.
However, given that the technology is in its relative infancy, the lack of established infrastructure to support a major shift to EVs remains a significant roadblock to adoption. EVs are limited by their range, and while developing the technology does continue to lengthen the range, many models are best suited for shorter trips.
