Electrified Veronika™ | Separating EV Fact from Fiction, Are We There Yet?

To separate EV fact from fiction, one needs to look further into the electrification revolution occurring in the automotive industry. According to the International Energy Agency, 300 million electric cars could be on the road by 2030. There’s no denying EV popularity growth and increasing global market share.

But what are the issues, challenges, and opportunities in the ever-critical battery segment within EV? Batteries and energy storage are two musts in propelling an EV future. Still, determining EV fact from fiction gets sticky in the electrification movement, especially in the automotive industry. What’s the truth behind the hype, and how does EV technology’s reality match people’s expectations?

In the latest episode of Are We There Yet?, host Grant Harrell engages in a riveting conversation with Dr. Veronika Wright, also known as Electrified Veronika™, a social entrepreneur and battery expert. The episode revolves around understanding the state of the industry, separating EV fact from fiction, and exploring Dr. Wright’s unique journey to electrification.
