I took a Kia electric car on a 2,000-mile road trip and here's what I learned

The all-American road trip is the last bastion of the internal combustion engine. While electric cars are seen as a valid solution for inner-city driving, taking one across the country is not something many would try, for two main reasons. First, there’s the range. Most electric vehicles give a range of figures of anywhere from 200 to 300 miles, and while that’s enough to get you between most cities in the UK, it won’t even get you out of most states in America. Then there’s the charging. Are there enough stations to keep your EV charged up on those longer journeys, or do you run out of options once you leave the safety of the city?

This Solar Electric Car Is as Aerodynamic as the Tesla Roadster

The Tesla Roadster is set to break electric car records, assuming it’s ever produced. It’ll have the longest range of any electric car, at 620 miles per charge.

But the Lightyear solar EV matches the Tesla Roadster in terms of aerodynamic efficiency, bringing solar cars to the masses.
