In this blog: I do foretaste many new social contacts "produced" by EVs.

The "What's your next car – hydrogen or pure electric?" blog also produced something and it was lots of comments (OK, in the Bulgarian version ^_^). I've learned a lot about the Bulgarian energy mix from this discussion, but another lovely idea popped up. I haven't really thought very much about this so far – the opportunityt to charge your electric vehicle at friends' place...

In this blog: When you drive ZOE make sure your head does not hit the window to the left ;).

I just don't want to find out how secure a car is from personal experience, so expert reviews comes very handy. And according such a review, coming from EURO Ncap, Renault ZOE is the best in its class, including ICE vehicles, in terms of safety and security...

In this blog: BMW i3's navigation connects you to the public transport systems in 17 countries.

Yeah, looks like the first intermodal in-car navigation is here... finally. Product of INRIX, it will be integrated with BMW ConnectedDrive systems in the new i3 and i8 EVs. Not sure anyone driving i8 will want to catch the bus instead, but things happen...

In this blog: Twice as much EVs sold in Germany in 2013 than in 2012 – Daimler leads with 31% in 2013.

Blame it on the holidays or something else – December 2013 was very short on EV sales in Germany. With close to thousand EV registrations, last year's October was the top month and despite it's still a fraction of the market, it's a very optimistic double in the EV sales year-to-year...

In this blog: Ford C-MAX Energi plugin hybrid concept with a solar roof capable of charging the battery in a day.

It's very interesting to when a big auto maker is testing how we'd react to the free energy idea. Even more – presenting it as a grid independent electric vehicle. You put on some (special) solar panels, park it under a (special) acrilyc carport and leave it charging from the sun...

In this blog: To part a hybrid out and sell the parts for pennies can hardly be a car stripper's dream.

Yesterday I watched "Strippers: Cars for cash" episode on NatGeo TV. Both teams' cars caught my attention. Ben and Franky's one as it was like the one that Mr. Bean always helped turn over, and Sheldon and George's, because it was a hybrid. Which turned out being not one of Sheldon's favourite cars...

In this blog: Being stimulated to get yourself electric car is great as long as it does not stimulate traffic.

And there's such an issue already. Growing EV numbers in Norway, where EV driving in the bus lane is permitted, already causing traffic jams there. It is very likely that there's also lots of rumble. As, far not everyone is driving an electric car yet...

In this blog: Smartphone app turns 130 Munich taxi/LCV drivers into virtual EVs.

We've learned about this project at eCarTec Munich back in October 2013, and the news now is that it's ready to roll. Technical University of Munchen (TUM) team created a software app and installed in on 130 smartphones. The phone then were given to Munich taxi and truck drives. The app is designed to track their driving behaviour showing how an EV would perform under the same conditions...

In this blog: Afrer Tesla Motors in August, now Ford files for Model E patent in December.

These Model "designations" were used by Ford some 100 years ago, but today Tesla Motors was first to act on Model E. So we we're suprised to know (via TechVehi), that on December 2 Ford filed for "Model E" trademark in the US Patent and Trademark Office...

In this blog: Good old "until 80% full" – as good to your stomach, as to your EV battery.

It's true for every part of your life (and of your EV battery life). But holidays are just another reason to remind you that overeating may be harmful to your stomach, and overcharging, to your EV battery...

In this blog: Fantastic first BMW i3 photo session around Sofia right before the winter.

Yesterday we discovered unexpectedly, that in the end of novemner BMG Group Bulgaria had a special opportunity to briefly present the all electric BMW i3 in Sofia. It was quick and improvised one day event, enough to cruise around the city taking pics in famous spots...

In this blog: A story about how you get over the things you don't like about BMW i3.

Like seems to be all over the place in our days. Yeah, I like finding stories about EVs on the internet. Especialy of personal experience and reviews. And like (you see :) most of the people, I quickly want to find out why whould someone buy something they describe as UGLY? Usually ugly means "don't like", right? But let's get into a story...
