Exploring the Electric Vehicles Future

EV TV is here to explore the EV future and discover what is evolving in the world of electric vehicles 2020 to 2050. This series of electric vehicle videos will look at all aspects of EV technology, myths, and logistics. We will investigate electric vehicle range, batteries, benefits and how this will all impact the environment.  We will be releasing new videos and podcasts monthly, so join us on our journey as we discover how the future is electric

Episode 1

Our Environment: The Impact of Electric & Hybrid Vehicles

Welcome to the first program in our brand-new DHL EV TV series. In this program, we look at electric cars, pros & cons and how they impact our environment. We will answer questions such as: are electric cars really greener, will I ever be able to drive 600 miles on a single charge and what is the environmental impact of electric car batteries? We explore innovations in electric car technology and bust some myths about electricity production and carbon emissions. It’s estimated that by 2050 some 55% of all vehicles on the road will be electric including those used in the logistics industry.  Not only will this improve energy use, reduce emissions and offer an exciting new driving experience, it should also be incredibly beneficial for the environment and the world we all share. We hope you enjoy this premier of EV TV.

EV TV Production

The future importance of electric vehicles is sensational.  We are excited to bring to you the DHL EV TV series. Filming has focused on safety and social distancing to comply with COVID-19 requirements and to ensure the wellbeing of everyone involved.  While this presented us with challenges, we also found that these restrictions were a great way to stimulate creativity and innovation.  For example, even in bad weather we found ways to use solar power to charge our field equipment – particularly our aerial drone platforms and cameras. 

By using the latest technology we were able to safely create virtual studio environments and outdoor action to build engaging and entertaining videos with the high production values that people have come to expect from DHL.  We hope you enjoy these videos as much as we have enjoyed making them.
