48 Electric-Car Charging Corridors Have Now Been Designated on U.S. Highways

Posted by Poquet Auto on Nov 16, 2016 4:48:05 AM

Two week ago, the White House announced a range of actions intended to stimulate and speed up the production of zero-emission electric vehicles in the U.S. This alternative fuel network plans to include 55 Interstate highways, with 48 of those designated as EV charging corridors. In total, the planned charging stations cover nearly 25,000 miles of road, with the appropriate signage along the corridors indicating where to charge up. EV owners can expect an existing or planned EV charging station within a 50-mile radius of one another.

The Federal Highway Administration has released a list of the locations of the corridors, which ones have been approved for the signage, and the type of fuels each will offer. Along with EVs, the program will accommodate vehicles that run on compressed natural gas, hydrogen, or other fuels.

BMW Films, They’re Back with, “The Escape.” | Poquet Auto Blog

Posted by Poquet Auto on Nov 3, 2016 6:00:01 AM

In 2001, BMW launched BMW Films’ “The Hire,” a series of 8 online short films which starred Clive Owen as an enigmatic driver for hire (similar to “The Transporter” in 2002). Each film had its own unique story, with David Fincher and Ridley and Tony Scott acting as executive producers and a cast featuring Madonna, Gary Oldman, Don Cheadle, Mickey Rourke, F. Murray Abraham, and James Brown. The 8-film series was only available online and was released 4 years before YouTube even hit the web. Fifteen years later, the films have developed a cult following and has lead to a new film, “The Escape.” Watch the trailer below!
