EV drivers sped past a big milestone recently, surpassing two billion electric kilometres in their plug-in vehicles. That’s 2,000,000,000 km – or about 1,250,000,000 miles. And that’s just the Nissan Leaf and Tesla owners, and the electric-only km’s / miles covered by Chevy Volt drivers.
When we factor in the electric distances travelled by plug-ins from BYD (210 million km / 130 million miles), Mitsubishi, Toyota, Ford, Renault, and others, we could well be approaching 2.5 billion km (1.5 billion miles).
Which is all fine and good, except that most of us have no earthly idea what those kinds of distances look like!
