Posted by Poquet Auto on Nov 28, 2016 3:24:42 PM

Curious about making the switch to a fully electric, long range vehicle? Right now, your options are fairly limited.

Tesla currently has a stranglehold on the market for electric cars that have an official range of more than 200 miles per charge.

That cord, however, may loosen as major automakers are driven to roll out more options by 2020, including GM and Volkswagen.

Posted by Poquet Auto on Nov 23, 2016 9:04:56 AM

Jaguar recently revealed their electric concept SUV, the I-PACE, that may come to production as early as 2018. Jaguar’s I-PACE appears to be a sensible, small utility vehicle, with a five-door design and is eyeing up a 4 second-ish 0-60mph time, a 310+ mile range, and a 50kW DC charging mechanism charge it’s battery from 0 to 80 percent in just 90 minutes.

The I-PACE looks a little like the Tesla Model X, mainly due to a broad, rear-end designed for maximum boot space tapering to a slim and sleek rounded front-end. Designed for sport-loving drivers, the I-PACE has a low, road-hugging cockpit, and with tons of usable space for families.

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.
