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. Jump down below the line for the results.
CleanTechnica’s next Cleantech Revolution Tour is approaching, and it is packed with EV and clean energy leaders from around Europe who are intent on easing the way into a brighter future. Starting in Berlin (Germany) on […]
Fastned is well on its way to becoming one of the largest electric car charging networks in Europe. Last week, it announced it was working with German authorities to construct a fast charging network in that […]
Rolling through another month of US electric car sales, I’m struck again by how much a few models dominate sales. Actually, I’m struck by how much Tesla’s two high-end (expensive) cars dominate US electric car sales. Before […]
As promised, the latest firmware update to Tesla’s operating system (2.52.22) has given drivers the ability to check the status of Supercharger stations within the car’s navigation system. The new feature has been dubbed “Live Status.”
Following on the release last month of a dash-cam video showing a reportedly self-driving Chevy Bolt EV traveling around San Francisco, Cruise/GM has now released another video. As you may recall, in the comments section of our earlier coverage some people expressed skepticism that the Bolt EV was driving all or most of the time. Presumably, Dan Amman reads CleanTechnica. 😉
ABB announced on Tuesday that it has brought two new fast chargers to Luxembourg City’s central station as part of the rollout of a new plug-in hybrid bus system in the city.
Sarasota County’s productivity and sustainability are alive and well. Thank you, Sustainable Sarasota, for the most recent initiatives promoting fresh air and planetary well-being. Sarasota’s newest program is “ChargeUP” — an Electric Vehicle Charging Station rebate program. This program provides rebates to certain types of businesses within Sarasota County to buy and install EV charging stations.
The France-based oil company Total will be adding electric vehicle charging stations to its extant petrol/gasoline station network in France, the company’s CEO Patrick Pouyanne recently revealed.
Five large electric vehicle fast-charging station networks in Europe have partnered to create a new integrated alliance, allowing users to easily use the stations of any of the 5 networks while traveling, according to a new press release from the collaboration.
Tesla’s free Superchargers have been a hotly debated topic since they first went live for the Model S. People complained about how it wasn’t scalable, how the stalls would all fill up because of local freeloaders when it was designed for people taking long trips…suffice it to say that it has been a point of contention for the company…but at the same time, one of Tesla’s key differentiators.
Originally published on CleanTechnica. The Netherlands-based electric vehicle fast-charging solutions firm Fastned recorded strong growth during the fourth quarter of 2016, according to a new email sent to CleanTechnica. As compared to Quarter 4 2015 (a […]
The Chargepoint Express Plus solution is really the foundation of the DC fast charging system, operating between the utility and the charging adapter, and the adapter itself is really nothing more than a bolt-on to that foundation. Taking the next logical step, I asked about adding on wireless charging which would, in and of itself, make it possible to charge autonomous vehicles without the need for a complex ‘snake’ charger.
We hear more about false news these days than in the past — unless you grew up with me. False news has always been around. I was raised by a father who ranted about “Madison Ave” controlling our lives. “Watch out what you read — make sure it’s true. Question what you hear. Avoid gossip, it leads to lies.” Now, we witness our head of state refusing to answer straightforward questions from reporters and just shouting back that they are “fake news” — a clever way of turning the story on its head after the focus had been on pro-Trump outlets and advisors peddling false news.
The EV fast-charging network leader EVgo has partnered with the cloud-based EV infrastructure software platform Driivz for the enhancement of the EV fast-charging experience, according to an email sent to CleanTechnica and EV Obsession. To be more specific, […]
