Herbert Diess, Britta Gross.

“We should look at how we calculate our range.”

This is Volkswagen boss Herbert Diess warning the industry to not repeat the mistakes it made with understating emissions and to overstate range of EVs. True though at least the latter are not toxic.

“Americans’ driving patterns really don’t change with electric vehicles, so regardless of whether your vehicle has an 80-mile all-battery range or now maybe 238 like the Bolt EV, most Americans are still doing about 40 miles a day of travel commuting to and from work.”

Even though real-life range may deviate from the values stated, Britta Gross, GM’s director of advanced vehicle commercialisation policy, points out that it is more than enough for real-life driving on most days.
