About
The purpose I started this website with the purpose of pushing electric vehicles forward, by trying my best to keep the reader informed about what is possible now and destroy some myths about electric cars. They can be affordable, fast and have long range with current technology if automakers get serious about them. Why? My interest in electric transportation is mostly political. Iā€™m tired of coups and wars for oil. My expectation is that the adoption of electric transportation will be a factor for peace and democracy all over the world.

If you have a product or service that is appealing for the readers of this website, you’re welcome to advertise on PushEVs. Why advertise here directly instead of using an ad network? Direct advertising is basically a banner image with an URL served from the website we’re visiting, it doesn’t use an external ad network server like Google Ads, which makes it imune to ad blockers. Nowadays, over 50 % of desktops use ad blockers and this percentage is even higher on tech websites, since their visitors are tech-savvy.

These are some of my favorite websites regarding electric vehicles in no particular order. Google Scholar I use it all the time to find research articles about battery technologies and other topics. Sci-Hub Sci-Hub is the best companion of Google Scholar, it’ll give access to articles trapped behind paywalls. Find the articles you want to read with Google Scholar, then open them with Sci-Hub. Battery University If you want to learn about batteries, this websiteĀ is the place to go.
