While electric vehicles offer many advantages–including reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the country’s dependence on imported petroleum–at least one barrier stands in the way of their large-scale adoption: “range anxiety.”

The current 2014 electric Nissan Leaf, for example, has a range of just 84 miles on a fully charged battery.
