1. EV News: Electrek
The number of consumers looking to buy electric vehicles has hit 52%, according to the latest EY Mobility Consumer Index (MCI). This is the first time the number has exceeded 50%, and it represents a rise of 22 percentage points in just two years.
UK drivers are paying nearly £100 to fill up a family car. An EV owner would save more than £63. Simon Evans, an award winning journalist, has been looking at some data regarding EV owners and regular car drivers in the UK.
3. EV Tip: Use a Smartphone App
Running an EV? There’ll be a car maker app for that, too. Whether it’s checking the level of charge in the battery, locking or unlocking the doors or telling the car when to start charging, a smartphone app will enhance the experience of running an EV.
There are useful third party apps too, including the Zap-Map EV charging app and Google Maps, with the latter including an electric vehicle charging page.
4. EV Stranded: The Verge
Ford surprises F-150 Lightning owners with accessory that can recharge stranded Teslas. Ford has been vocal about the new F-150 Lightning’s bi-directional charging capability that enables owners to use the electric truck’s massive battery to charge other EVs. And, now, the company is apparently including a new accessory so these Good Samaritan truck owners can help out stranded Teslas.
5. EV Video: Fully Charged
Each week we will bring to you another episode in the 'Maddie Goes Electric' range. Here's the fourth episode of the Fully Charged Show's 6 part series - Clean Energy for your electric car (A beginner's guide)
Blog Version Extra:
Most Australian drivers planning to buy an electric vehicle “within the next few years” want vehicle-to-load or vehicle-to-grid technology, a recent survey conducted by The Driven and Jet Charge reveals.
Until next time. Have a fantastic week!
