Electric vehicles are the “next big thing” – there is a wide variety of cars already and many more models will reach the market soon, so we decided to do for EVs what we’ve been doing for mobile phones since the year 2000.
Today we’re launching ArenaEV.com, a site that catalogs electric vehicles and keeps you up to date with daily news articles. Note that the focus is on pure EVs, so hybrids are not included and certainly no ICE vehicles. Also, we’re not doing car reviews – yet.
The design of the site is intentionally similar to that of GSMArena. For one, you’re already familiar with it, so you should easily find your way around. For another, the design is the result of over two decades of refinement and is both informative and easy to read.
You will find the features that you’re used to, including an advanced search tool that lets you dial in precise requirements and will help you when looking for a new car. For each individual model you will find quick toggles to switch between the available drivetrains. Also, there are pictures to swipe through and detailed specs below.
If a particular model isn’t quite right for you, there are handy links to other models from the same brand and there is (usually) a list of alternatives in the same price segment.
You can compare up to three vehicles (two on mobile) side by side to help you narrow down the options. Since looks are important, you can hit the Visual compare button and view the selected cars from different angles.
We have an international audience, so to make things easier to read the site can automatically convert to your preferred units of measurement. Hit the cog icon to set things up and the settings will be remembered for the next time you visit.
ArenaEV is also a place to discuss cars and new developments with other like-minded people. We invite you to share your opinions for the cars you are interested in and to comment on the latest news. You can do so with and without an account, though if you do have an account you will see notifications when someone replies to your comments.
We believe that electric cars are the future and one of humanity’s best bets to fight climate change. Plus, they are fun to drive and come loaded with all sorts of tech that make our geek hearts beat faster.
Don’t forget to bookmark ArenaEV.com, you can also follow the official Facebook account (there’s an RSS feed too, for those not into social networks).
