Another electric pickup truck was recently unveiled, this time at the EVVE Conference in Ontario. It’s an electric pickup that certainly sounds enticing, even though it isn’t completely clear at this point if the intent is commercial production.

The electric truck startup Bollinger Motors has now revealed some basic information (and images) of the chassis structure that will be used for its all-electric sport utility truck, a few months ahead of the planned unveiling of the truck in New York (sometime this summer). The chassis to be used is apparently made entirely of […]
The Japanese electric vehicle market is comprised almost entirely of Japanese auto manufacturers (unsurprisingly), which makes the market an interesting contrast to free-for-all markets like the US. The Nissan LEAF has over the past few years more or less dominated the market. Though, the first-generation Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid (PHEV) had respectable sales as well — which makes the […]
While the Tesla Model 3 is interesting, the company’s semi-truck development program grabs my attention much more so … which brings us back to Musk’s tweet.
The European EV market had approximately 30,000 registrations last month, down 11% over the same month last year. This sales slip, however, had to do with the incentives-derived sales rush of the last quarter of 2015. Last month, though, the top spots were yet again influenced by the Dutch market sales peak: #1 VW Passat GTE – […]
Many of our readers have long been desiring a compelling electric pickup truck. When Elon Musk announced earlier this year in Tesla’s 2nd Master Plan that it planned to roll out an electric pickup truck, the crowds went wild. But no real details were provided. On that matter, someone on Twitter by the name of “MikeMfknSplain” […]
As an adjunct to our earlier story that Orange EV has begun taking orders for its new Class 8 T-Series electric terminal trucks, it’s worth highlighting here that Orange EV has announced that organizations and businesses operating fleets in California will now be able to receive up to $120,000 in incentives towards the purchase of […]
The electric truck company Orange EV has begun accepting orders for the new T-Series all-electric terminal truck, according to recent reports. The new T-Series electric terminal trucks build on the company’s initial T-Series trucks (capable of up to 24 hours of operation per charge), which have now been deployed at various sites in the manufacturing, […]
Context & commentary: Among hardcore EV enthusiasts, BYD is well known as the world’s leading manufacturer of electric buses, and also as the leading manufacturer of electric cars in China. Even back in 2013, the head of Barcelona’s transit agency told me that BYD’s electric buses (which it had been testing for a few months) […]
Nikola Motor Company Reveals $2.3 Billion In Preorders For PHEV Truck (~$10.5 Million In Reservation Money)
You may have not heard of Nikola Motor Company yet, the company only unstealthed itself fairly recently. The company has revealed two semi-trucks to date — the plug-in natural gas–electric hybrid Nikola One and the off-road Nikola Zero UTV. Following the opening of pre-orders for the Nikola One semi-truck ($1500 a pop, fully refundable) last […]
The government of Andorra recently approved substantial incentives for the purchase of various types of electric vehicles in the country, according to an email sent to CleanTechnica and EV Obsession.

A new survey from the Union of Concerned Scientists and the Consumers Union (the policy and advocacy arm of Consumer Reports) has revealed that 55% of Northeastern drivers in the US possess an interest in electric vehicles, and that 35% are likely to consider purchasing or leasing one as their next vehicle. “Consumers looking for […]
Li-Ion Batteries That Charge In Under 1 Second (Not Supercapacitors) Developed In Norway, But Not Ideal For Cars
Originally published on Gas2. Scientists and researchers around the world are working on improved battery technology that will facilitate the transition away from fossil fuels to electric vehicles. Their quest is for a battery that is lighter, cheaper, and smaller, with greater energy density. It is unlikely anyone will find a single solution that checks […]
The Switzerland-based company E-Force has developed an 18-ton all-electric truck intended as a competitor to standard diesel-powered urban + interurban delivery vehicles in the region. The E-Force electric truck possesses a range of 300 kilometers per full charge, according to the company, and reportedly uses “only” around 80–110 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per 100 kilometers […]
The electric truck startup company Tevva Motors (formerly Teva Motors) is currently working to commercialize range-extended electric trucks in the UK market — and recently showed off its latest offering via a video posted online.
