EVs in the Age of Cheap Oil

In recent years, electric vehicle (EV) adoption has skyrocketed, driven by technological advances, rising oil costs, climate change concerns and more. There are now over 500,000 EVs on the road in California alone. With government incentives, they can be more economical to drive than traditional gasoline-powered cars, but the economic downturn, combined with the recently plummeting price of oil, has many wondering about the continued growth of EV use. Join us for a discussion about the future of EVs during a pandemic and in a new age of cheap oil. Generously sponsored by Uber.
