StoreDot has battery that charges in 5 minutes!

StoreDot says they have an energy dense and fast charging battery - like 5 minutes fast! Think of filling up your EV in just 5 minutes. That would take the wind out of the sails of all those EV-haters that like to say they can refuel in 5 minutes <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif...

Tesla stolen and self-recovered with location app

Probably not the safest way to recover a stolen vehicle, but a cool story at least! This Tesla owner left their key in the Model S and when they woke up the next day, the car was gone. Using the tracking app, they located the car and drove it home. Then they filed a police report! “LOML left her key...

Bolt looks interesting, but where will you charge it? Last I checked, barely any SAE CCS fast-chargers exit and GM says they won't install at dealerships.

China to get Qoros EV with 218 mile range at end of 2016

A 200 mile EV that could be a competitor to the Chevy Bolt EV, and Tesla Model 3, except that it is only available in China (at least for now). http://insideevs.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Qoros-3-Q.LECTRIQ-7413-750x498.jpg Qoros unveiled 2 concept electric vehicles - the 5 SUV Q.Lectriq and the ...

RE:Nikola Motors announces $2.3 billion in pre-order for EV Semi

No, there is a plug - they just didn't talk about it as much as they should have in the press release.

Maybe because truck drivers don't want to sit and wait for a charge - unless they could do it at night while they're sleeping!

RE:Nikola Motors announces $2.3 billion in pre-order for EV Semi

I think the interesting part about the Nikola One is the Turbine engine - it outputs 400kW of clean energy into the batteries. It can turn on and off within seconds, and can run on diesel, gasoline, and natural gas.
