What will YOU be driving when gasoline-powered vehicles are banned? 

After a century of competition-free growth, is the era of internal combustion engines (ICEs) coming to an end?

Frankly, it's been a long time coming. Mankind is shooting itself in the foot by ignoring the future of transportation.

Blue gas, hydrogen cells, and electric vehicles are just a few viable alternatives to our gasoline ecosystem. 

So what's stopping them? 

Why haven’t these “superior” fuels stolen the spotlight yet? 

Simply put, convenience is king. 

The ability to hop in a car and drive almost anywhere is a triumph almost 50 years in the making. Even the most advanced car on the planet is useless without a complete network of refueling and repair services. 

As of now, only one type of engine allows for long driving range, easy refueling, and worldwide support. 

But that’s about to change…

Securing Our Electric Future

EVs are the first viable contender to challenge traditional ICE vehicles. 

And for the most part, the public is highly in favor of getting gasoline vehicles off the road. 

Last year, the worldwide electric car stock hit 10 million units, showing a solid 43% increase from the year before. 

Government spending for development and incentives on EVs totaled $14 billion last year. 

Rock-solid tax programs helped European automakers sell an unprecedented 375,000 units total, including all-electric and hybrid vehicles. China alone managed to churn out almost 325,000 EVs as part of its decarbonization program.

Reason Not To Buy A EV

From a performance standpoint, it’s really not a fair fight. 

Many consider today’s EVs to be superior to ICE vehicles in nearly every metric.

That is, every metric except one: convenience. 

Now, there’s a key disadvantage when comparing gasoline vehicles with electric vehicles. Remember, we’re comparing a completely new generation of electric vehicles against an industry of traditional cars that have been developed and improved upon for more than a century. 

And clearly, comparing a modern electric engine with some of the earlier ICEs would yield entirely different results. 

Given the same amount of development and improvement that ICEs had, an EV would be miles ahead of any comparable vehicle.

Reason Not To Buy A EV
No effective transportation solution can exist without a network of infrastructure. There's just one catch: Transportation needs a lot of infrastructure. Otherwise, it simply won’t work. 

Millions of miles of roads, hundreds of thousands of gas stations, and countless other structures gave ICEs a competitive edge in the market. So far, EVs are still playing catch-up. 

Lacking convenience is a death sentence in today’s economy. On-demand services and same-day shipping are setting the bar at an unsustainable level. 

For now, the EV industry can't compete with a five-minute fill-up at a gas station. And for many potential buyers, the lack of nearby charging areas has been causing serious range anxiety. 

That range anxiety is manifesting as buyer anxiety. In a recent poll, almost 50% of EV skeptics said that low range and lack of access to chargers are the main reasons they're not switching over yet.

Cost EV Vs. ICE
Similarly, gas station owners are hesitant to make the big investment in charging modules. 

They don't want to get stuck holding the bag if a new standard pops up in the next few years. 

While this overly cautious approach works in some cases, it rarely generates the type of massive gains we're aiming for. 

Some more forward-thinking companies are going all-in after getting the green light from the government. 

Thanks to a tailwind from President Biden’s massive infrastructure bill, we could see charging stations becoming a standard feature of more than just gas stations. 

The trillion-dollar stimulus bill is set to pour huge amounts of money into the waiting hands of a few elite players in the EV market.

Roughly $15 billion in funds has been earmarked to create a nationwide ecosystem of charging stations that can compete with gas stations. 

Since EV drivers need more time to charge their cars, any business that brings customers inside (think restaurants, movie theaters, even grocery stores) could benefit from a charging setup. 

This transition to an all-electric world is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity few in the investment herd have recognized so far.
