TOP EV NEWS
Governors from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin are working together to create an EV charging network. Agreements that cross state borders and create centralized regulations may well be game-changing for the speed of EV adoption in the US. Nice to see this kind of bipartisan work happening in the Midwest.
Tesla HQ has a new address. For anyone tracking Tesla’s news buzz, the change of their headquarters to Texas isn’t surprising. The company has poured time and resources into the new location, which is now the official HQ.
Electric trucking has been a debate for a long time now. Many know it’s only a matter of time, but the question has been when that time is going to be. Amazon and FedEx have both thrown themselves behind the electrification of their delivery vans. But what about bigger vehicles? CleanTechnica outlines a recent research event that answers some of those questions through real data aggregation.
New EV Announcements
The British Moke was a 60’s icon in Britain and abroad. Now, the brand is electrifying! It’ll have a top speed of about 100km/h, but it’ll get you where you need to go in classic style.
EV Investments and Innovation
Cadillac is requiring dealerships that wish to continue to sell its vehicles to invest in electric. The company is going all EV by 2030 and has told dealerships it needs chargers, EV training, and new tooling (costing up to $200,000). This kind of long-term view from Cadillac will likely serve them in the long run, even if in the short term it means some dealerships are jumping ship.
The vehicle has passed Michigan’s state police testing requirements. Perhaps we’re going to see more Ford Mustang Mach-E police cars in the future. We know a number of other forces have decided to use either the Mach-E or a Tesla as part of their foray into electric squad cars.
