Electric cars are revolutionizing America

Together with

The Future. 2023 was a massive year for electric cars — experts say it was the year that EVs went from experiments to mature vehicles. Now, with a boom in sales and a variety of new models across manufacturers, the rise of electric cars could transform the very meaning of a car itself.

Vroom boom 
Electric cars are upending the American landscape.

  • The story of American EVs has long been led and defined by Tesla, but this year, EVs untethered themselves from Elon Musk’s brand.
  • Since the start of 2022, nearly 40 new EVs have debuted, and they have rapidly evolved in quality and capacity.
  • For example, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 can drive 360 miles on a single charge — just five years ago, a Nissan Leaf couldn’t go half that distance.

More than just a car
Beyond being a more sustainable option, EVs are also redefining how we look at cars, similar to how the smartphone redefined the cell phone. These vehicles are becoming bonafide computers, like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class that comes with TikTok integration and a selfie stick.

And if cars are now indistinguishable from gadgets, then automakers are now tech companies… in other words, the line between the tech and automotive industries is blurring more than ever.
