The time required for recharging vehicle batteries and the lack of available publicly accessible charging stations can cause electric vehicle drivers anxiety about whether they can complete their trips with the remaining charge.  General Motors actually filed a trade mark for the term “range anxiety” back in 2010.

General Motors recently had a patent published for the “Display of Total Vehicles Trip Range”.  General Motors state that this patented technology is specifically designed to give electric vehicle drivers confidence in how much further they can drive an electronic vehicle before it will need to be recharged.  It will also display a maximum and minimum range depending on your driving style.  The new technology is no doubt beneficial to drivers.
