Top 10 Most Popular Articles + My Favorites from 2019 

Between EVAdoption (45) and CleanTechnica (10), in 2019 I wrote 55 articles about electric vehicle and charging trends. To wrap up the year, I decided to share the top 10 EVAdoption articles based on page views and my personal favorites from both EVAdoption and CleanTechnica.
