Welcome to Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia… you know, Melania’s mother country! Good to see the Slovenes are er, being best when it comes to EV charging in urban settings. Those sign graphics tho’ – the cars look more like porkers than Porsches. (image via TeaMeister)
L’Only At The Top
So it begins… EV snobbery in the form of exclusivity has come to Manchester, UK today, tomorrow the world. That said, we’d like to see some ICE’d (Internal Combustion Engine) Luddite pull up to these “EV Only” pumps after downing more than their limit of lagers. Protip: electric sparks and gasoline are a good mix INSIDE an engine, not OUTSIDE when attempting to fill the tank. (image via JCT 600)
Leave Me Elon
So it continues… Mr Musk would like us to believe his Tesla brand is somehow different, somehow better, than all of those other EVs he didn’t conceive, sell, and profit from. Well Elon, you can fool some of the people some of the time but you can’t fool electrons any of the time. One thing he CAN do, is tailor the essential charging and recharging system so it only fits Tesla automobiles… which is essentially what’s shown above. Sorry Nissan Leaf and associated EV-pretenders, your kind er, brand ain’t welcome ’round these parts. (image via Takver)
Here’s a sharp-looking EV charging station in Sunderland, UK, and… what’s that? You didn’t know it was a charging station? But the sign clearly states “Fastned”. Aha, there’s your problem: not everyone knows that Fastned (Fastned Administratie Stichting, long version) is an Amsterdam-based company whose mission is establishing a pan-European network of EV fast-charging stations. Sounds like a plan… then again, so’s Brexit. Shareholders are advised to keep their butts – and their anxieties – fastned down tightly as the ride ahead could be re-volting. (image via John Lord)
