Volvo Uses Blockchain To Ensure Ethical EVs

Blockchain technology is (in the simplest way I can think of to describe it) a time-stamped series of transactions that are linked together, mathematically, to form a “chain.” Each transaction in the chain is a “block,” and they’re tied together using a cryptographic algorithm (fancy math) in a way that makes it impossible for the chain to be modified

Yes, The Mach-E Is A Real Mustang

The closest people on the sidewalk jumped a bit. Two men on scooters abandoned their wheels, and exploded out of the bike lane onto the sidewalk. Even people who weren’t frightened were definitely looking my way, just in case. Moments earlier, the light had just turned green, and I had used my right and left feet to unleash a monster on the streets of downtown Los Angeles. The Shelby GT350R, with its 5.2L flat-plane crank V8 engine, let out a growling sound that awakens humans’ inner fear of large, growling animals

Tesla Model 3 V3 Supercharging Times: 2% To 100% State of Charge (Video)

VegasModel3 posted a video that answers the most asked EV question I’ve encountered. Although, the answer to this question is particular to the Tesla Model 3. It won’t answer the question for all EVs. That question is typically the beginning question before someone delves further into the world of electric cars

Open The Plug-In Hybrid Floodgates! Germany EV Sales Report

Something clicked in the German plug-in vehicle market after the summer holidays. The market had a record month (9,452 registrations) in September, and then October came and set a new record, this time 26% above the previous one! 11,926 plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) were registered, more than doubling last year’s result. With China’s PEV market in post-subsidy blues, this is a welcome boost to global sales. Now if only the US market helped to carry the burden

French EV Market Up 65%, Finally Some Reshuffling!

The French plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market had 6,433 registrations in October, up 65% year over year (YoY). Interestingly, this time, it was the plug-in hybrids (+118%) pulling the market up the most, with BEVs growing “just” 53%

Is The Ford Mustang Mach E A Tesla Killer?

Now that the specs of the Mustang Mach E have been leaked (we got them as well but decided to follow the rules and not leak them), most articles are interested in how it compares to the Model Y. It’s going to be other items that differentiate the two cars and determine which one people are more comfortable with and decide to buy. Instead of listing all the ways the cars are similar, I’m going to list the ways they are different

How Many Climate Activists Haven’t Bought A Tesla Because They’ve Been Tricked By Big Oil?

I’m a hardcore climate activist. I’ve been one for approximately 20 years (and writing that sure does make me feel old). I’m quite concerned that we are destroying the livability of this planet for human life and countless other species. Furthermore, I’ve got two young girls, and I’m certain their lives are going to be harder than mine due to more drought, agricultural failures, superstorms, more severe fires, climate-related diseases, flooding, and severe migration challenges. I’d like to do what I can to limit the challenges they will face in an increasingly unstable world

12 Reasons Why The Ford Mustang Mach E Will Be A Huge Hit

Before I explain all the reasons why the Ford Mustang Mach E will be successful, I want to mention that this is no “Tesla Killer.” We will have detailed articles explaining why this car won’t “kill” Tesla after the reveal, but short version is this car will take most of its market share from the 99% of vehicles that are gas or diesel powered. Other media outlets will promote the false narrative that Ford, Tesla, and all other EVs are fighting each other for the 1% of people who want EVs, and thus, if this car sells well, many of those sales come directly from Tesla
