shaun bailey’s latest campaign video is all about how expensive it is for him to drive from Brentwood in Essex into central London. as it should be, becuase we just spent £19 billion giving the town a direct Crossrail service

Like most BMW & Mercedes plugin models electric iX1 will lose boot space compared to piston, exhaust & fuel tank versions because their design philosophy is to put batteries where your luggage should be! Surely by now they should be able to package this like every other #EV

The pure-electric @BMW_UK iX1 has been snapped testing in disguise 📸

One of a raft of electric BMWs on the way soon, it'll join the i3, iX3, i4 and iX in the range 👉 http://drivelec.uk/3dHGG6B

Nissan has confirmed price reductions of both 40kWh and 62kWh versions of the widely popular Leaf electric vehicle of up to £5,265, depending on model. https://www.whichev.net/2021/04/07/nissan-drops-prices-of-leaf-by-up-to-5265/ #renewablenergy #evs #evcharging #electricvehicles

Tesla Model 3 got another end of quarter delivery 🚢 boost taking 4th place in sales chart ahead of Qashqai, 3 series & Golf
Tesla share 29.9% of 🇬🇧 march EV & 23.9% Q1 EV sales

89% of all Q1 Tesla sales were in March

🇬🇧 Car sales figures for March 2021

EV 7.7% / Q1 2021 7.5%

Diesel share still 19% but nearly half (43%) of cars burning the stinky fuel now come with an MHEV starter motor making the headline 10.8% diesel share increasingly meaningless

Plugin sales march 13.8% / Q1 13.8%

We have a new record for largest @Tesla charger location:

⚡️Harris Ranch between LA and SF
⚡️80 V3 Superchargers (in addition to existing stalls)
⚡️Solar canopies & battery storage

What kind of grid connection will it need, is that 24MW of peak power?
