Our @rivergecko twitter feed includes some of the UK electric car news but is also Clean Tech – Climate change Tech – EVs – Renewable Energy including wind and solar – clean trains and boats – air pollution – divesting from fossil fuels
#Berniememes made me laugh all day! These are some of my favs! 🤣🤣🤣
This is a question bigger than Brexit.. is Matt Hancock so short of space that all his interviews have to be conducted in his downstairs privy.. or more worryingly is it the only room in the house with a camera installed on the door😂
Is #MattHancock addressing the nation on #BBC news from his downstairs toilet? 💩
WHO limits for toxic air pollution would make the effectiveness of clean air zones even more important
Without diesel sunset more of the dirtiest vehicles become exempt every year...
@SadiqKhan @MattHancock @grantshapps @BBCTomEdwards @CleanAirLondon
Pressure grows to put WHO air quality limits in Environment Bill as yesterday @rosamund_ElsFdn & I met George Eustace & today @MattHancock says he’s discussing link between Covid deaths and pollution with him
So much more fun than fuel burning behemoths like the #BMW X7, #Audi Q7 or #Audikuwait
Clean, electric, smaller footprint #EV
We built it for ordinary trips, to lighten the footprint of going to work and getting groceries. What we discovered along the way: the pure delight it was to drive. The FUV, available now to preorder customers on the West Coast and Florida, coming soon nationwide $FUV
Price drop for Tesla Model 3 in France triggers big change in retail price for French #EV buyers of SR+ thanks to grant increase...
The @Tesla Model 3 now starts at €36,800 instead of around €44k last week, after €7,000 incentives (directly deducted from the invoice)
I didn’t see that coming!
This is gonna make a killing 🤩👌🏻
Yes, Switzerland is a small country and car market. Nonetheless, I feel this amazing fact deserves way more attention:
The #Tesla #Model3 was the 2nd best selling car in 🇨🇭 in the entire year 2020 - of ALL cars (incl gas-guzzlers). Only 14% behind the leader. Mind blown!
Never gets old seeing this happen. The same rocket has done this 8 times.
Very interesting feedback from British Gas' Fleet Engineer, James Rooney, on running electric vans:
In 7 years of running a large fleet of Nissan e-NV200 electric vans, not one of them has broken down. Not even once.
The same cannot be said of their NV200 diesel vans!
Thanks to @waitrose CEO James Bailey for his response to our letter asking to meet. Interesting to note the "differing opinions". If @jlpartnership feels Logistics UK is doing the wrong thing, perhaps it's time to stop lending them credibility? #AirPollution #Greenwashing
Almost exactly a year ago @Shell_UKLtd closed their Fulham petrol station in @LBHF to replace with a 100% #EV charging hub
In 12 months (about the same time as a Tesla Gigafactory takes from muddy field to building EVs) they have managed to demolish the petrol station!😂
Sun sets on petrol/diesel sales at the Fulham Shell Garage
The petrol station closes in the next 2 days & will be entirely replaced by a 10 stall 150kW charging station
The shop will be upgraded with seating & free wifi under a solar panel canopy
Say hello to the Mercedes EQA. It will be Merc's entry-level EV and has a 66kWh battery at launch and a WLTP range of 264 miles. Power is 190bhp and max charge rate is 100kW. Expect UK prices to start at around £40k when it arrives later this year.
Your verdict, electrifiers?
