China’s heat wave is creating havoc for electric vehicle drivers

The record-breaking heat wave in China, which started back in June, has evaporated over half the hydroelectricity generation capacity in Sichuan, a southwestern province that usually gets 81% of its electricity from hydropower plants.

The majority of pu...
