May 31st, 2017 | by Zach

It was with a great degree of curiosity that we explored EV charging experiences and needs by type of EV and region for our latest EV report. What's the story for Tesla drivers, non-Tesla fully electric car drivers, and plug-in hybrid drivers? What's the story for Americans vs Europeans? We already covered the desire and demand for fast charging and superfast charging in a previous section, but we dive much more into other charging matters here.

May 22nd, 2017 | by Steve Hanley

Some Shell stations in UK and Netherlands will reportedly be adding EV charging stations later this year
