In this blog: First ever BMW C evolution was produced on April 4, 2014 – sales start in the summer.

The BMW Motorrad factory in Berlin-Spandau started production of the new maxi e-scooter which marks the addition of another electric vehicle to BMW's portfolio. Not that we can compare these two, but at the price of a two years old 3-Series car, we wonder how C evolution will perform on the market...

In this blog: The European Parliament decided EVs must make some noise for pedestrians safety, especially visually impaired people.

It's kind of a follow up to our blog Let's just "stick" some noise into the EVs (back than the EN version of eCars.bg was still to come). The difference is that now MEPs decision says from 2019 on all EVs must emit a noise similar to the one coming from the ICE vehicles...

In this blog: Starting March 6, 2014 every new Model S comes with battery shield that can be retrofitted for free.

That battery below, let's protect it even more. We're fine with Model S as it is, but the folks over at Tesla apparently decided to go one step further in keeping the battery safe...

In this blog: In 2014 it's already possible to drive an EV cross country in the winter.

And at least with Tesla, it comes at no cost, but even if it was paid, it would still be three times chearer than driving a gas car. We're talking about the 76 hour trip made by Tesla team driving two Model S EVs from LA to New York...

In this blog: Turns out just one fast charging station is enough to increase EV traffic a lot.

The news that Nissan now has 1,000 fast charging stations (CHAdeMO) installed around Europe (#1000 is somewhere in Surray, Englang), is great for electric mobility. To me even greater news would be to have even one of the next 1,000 stations installed in Bulgaria...

In this blog: If you own a garage, you'll most likely agree to that, but otherwise it's different.

Most ot the early EV adopters can charge their cars at home. It's a fact. With that in mind, after couple of years of MiniE and ActiveE tests it does not sound weird to me to hear someone at BMW saying: "Public infrastructure is not really very important because most people are charging their cars at home"...

In this blog: American performance custom pros at Saleen plan to make their own Model S masterpiece.

Meanwhile some guys over at Tesla Motors are about to complete their first Model S USA cross tour from the South to the East Coast. In winter conditions. They've almost reached the final destination and so far the only failure enroute is in the gasoline service minivan. It happens with cars and is not a topic to discuss here, but that Steve Saleen wants to make the most powerful Model S so far, is...

In this blog: Do electric vehicles need such narrow tires and do they look good?

Skinnies fit Renault Twizy, though it looks cooler in ELIA mods. You know Germans, they not only put wider tires, but also wider custom fenders. Some other Germans did the opposite, however, despite they are far from popular in doing this – BMW i3's tires are super skinny for its width. Not that we haven't seen skinny tires, but 155/70 on 19"?!?...
