Road Trips Go EV In 2019

EV Road Trip

If you’re planning to travel more this year, you’re not alone: A YouGov Omnibus poll finds that almost a quarter of us have resolved to see new sights in 2019. And although many people associate travel with a certain number of hassles and inconveniences, there’s no denying that technological advances – flight check-in apps, speedy TSA pre-checks, automated rental-car kiosks, even super secure smart luggage that rolls itself – are making great getaways easier than ever.

Road Trip Revolution: It’s Electric

Travelers looking to hit the open road may find an increase in tech-savvy signposts along the way: charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs). Travel-industry insiders say that investing in infrastructure for EV drivers is among the leading trends for 2019, as tourists look for quiet, convenient, efficient ways to see the world on four wheels. Lonely Planet has published a list of locations around the world – from Caribbean beaches or the foothills of Mt. Fuji to distilleries in the Scottish Highlands and an all-American scenic route – where you can cruise the highways and byways without stopping to gas up:

  • West Coast Green Highway (British Columbia to California)
  • National Tourist Route Hardangervidda, Norway (Bergen to Hardangervidda National Park)
  • Barbados (island-wide)
  • Madeira, Portugal
  • United Arab Emirates and Oman (Muscat and Sohar)
  • Golden Route, Japan (Tokyo to Kyoto)
  • North Coast 500 (Scotland)
  • Queensland’s Electric Super Highway, Australia (Cairns to Coolangatta)
  • Route 66
  • Black Forest, Germany
