- "DRIVETHEARC" EV fast charging corridor breaks ground in Northern California: From Monterey to Lake Tahoe, 50 New EV Fast Chargers to be Installed at over 20 Locations
- BMW Group, Daimler, Ford and Volkswagen Group plan joint venture for ultra-fast charging along major highways in Europe: German car companies, plus Ford Motors, join together to promote a much higher charging rate for DC Fast Charging. So far the highest rate is Tesla's 120+ kiloWatt Supercharger. These companies propose a 350 kiloWatt rate for the Combo Charging System. Doing so would cut charging time to 10 minutes or so for a complete recharge, which would begin to support proper road trips.
- Nissan and BMW partner once again to expand DC Fast Charger access across the U.S. to benefit EV drivers: More expansion of dual-protocol DC fast chargers is coming, with continued partnership between BMW and Nissan. The 50 kW charging rate won't provide good service to the coming 200+ mile range electric cars, since a full recharge at 50 kW is 1.5 to 2 hrs. Will eVgo realize this and upgrade to 100 kW or faster chargers eventually? And, will eVgo change their policies to allow charging sessions longer than 30 minutes? The attached map doesn't indicate they're thinking about long distance travel corridors either.
