Publisher's Summary

Explore how disruptive technologies are driving a giant leap in the car business.

There is a revolution launching in the automotive industry, the leap to electrification.The future of transportation combines three industries: energy, communications, and transportation into one smart infrastructure as the EV fast charge station. Once separate industries, energy, communications, and transportation, are now coming together to form an integrated, efficient, high performance transportation platform which will unleash the EV and obsolete the internal combustion engine with charge at your destination.

There are over one billion cars on the roads worldwide, nearly all of them, at the time of this writing, powered with gasoline piston engines. Over the next 60 months the ratio of electric vehicles over gasoline engines for new cars sales will grow from single digits to a majority market share - displacing the gasoline piston engine. All driven by fast charge where you park.

As electric car sales quickly accelerate the market opportunities are worth trillions of dollars over the next decade, a fact not lost on the car companies. The auto manufacturers are prepared for this rapid market displacement from gasoline to electric - the oil industry is not. The DC fast charge station and the ability to bring diverse networks together for seamless transactions, communications, advertising, and fast charging where you park, lays the groundwork for the revolution now undergoing the transportation industry worldwide.

Every major car manufacturer is poised for this market. The infrastructure for fast charging EVs represents a large opportunity for those who take advantage of this moment in time with the automobile industry long wed to oil-based fuels, as it leaps to electric drive. Consumers are driven by desire. Power, performance, increased range, and decreased costs are powerful incentives especially when you throw in outright beauty and design in the modern EV. All of these disruptive technological waves are meeting in a historic convergence which will see the transition from piston internal combustion engines and their associated toxicity to electrification with decreasing toxicity.

The modern electric car with the new batteries onboard, and onsite at the parking spaces for fast charging, will propel the automotive industry worldwide into this new era. It is a changing of the guard. An era of increased freedom, performance, and availability coupled with decreased toxicity and cost are coming together to issue a new age for transportation: electrification. Explore the electric car as fast charge obsoletes the traditional gasoline station with charge where you park.
