    A Colorado electric vehicle owner called a road trip across the state of Wyoming “very difficult” after it took 15 hours to drive 178 miles. Alan O’Hashi used to live in Wyoming and explained that a trip back to the Cowboy State in his electric Nissan Leaf required lots of patience. “It was very difficult, O’Hashi told the Cowboy State Daily. “For example, [it took] 15 hours to get from Cheyenne to Casper.” ELECTRIC VEHICLE COMPANY RECALLS CLOSE TO ENTIRE FLEET The distance between Cheyenne and Casper is 178 miles, which with the speed limit taken into account should take less than 2 1/2 hours. “What I’ve learned from driving this thing is patience,” O’Hashi said. Since that first attempt, O’Hashi has made the trip again but was only able to cut the total travel time down to 11 hours. While waiting to charge, he noted that he often spends extra money shopping or eating, in addition to the charging cost. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER O’Hashi...
    EVERYBODY loves a bargain when it comes to buying a car, but does it get much better than a brand new pick-up for £1,800? It's called the Hondsheng Pickup and it's a fully-electric truck with air-con, an interior screen and a proper hydraulic tipping load bed. 5The Hondsheng Pickup is currently on sale at Alibaba.com for £1,800Credit: Electrek/MICAH TOLL So, what's the catch? Well, it's more a case of what isn't. The Hondsheng is based on a golf cart, it can't legally be driven on the road, it only does 27mph and you can only buy one from Alibaba.com in China. But that's exactly what a man called Micah Toll did, and he's been documenting what it's like to live with. Micah lives in Florida in the US and the Hondsheng finally arrived on a pallet after a long wait, but it was way better than he was expecting.

    The remains of a lost Italian village have resurfaced for the first time in 71 years after it was submerged to create a hydro-electric plant.       Curon, a former alpine village in Italy's northeastern South Tyrol, was flooded by authorities to become a reservoir in 1950 - despite objections from its hundreds of residents. A damn was built to merge two natural lakes and create the power generating site, causing the village to be covered by Lake Resia in the process. Around 163 homes were lost to the lake bed and only the 14th-Century church tower remained visible on the water's surface - creating a striking landmark which has become a tourist attraction.

    DETROIT (AP) — Volkswagen of America issued false statements this week saying it would change its brand name to “Voltswagen,” as a way to stress its commitment to electric vehicles, only to reverse course Tuesday and admit that the supposed name change was just a joke. Mark Gillies, a company spokesman, confirmed Tuesday that the statement had been a pre-April Fool’s Day joke, after having insisted Monday that the release was legitimate and the name change accurate. The company’s false release was distributed again Tuesday, saying the brand name change reflected VW’s switch to more battery-electric vehicles. The company is trying to change its image and recover from a 2015 scandal in which it cheated on government emissions tests and allowed diesel-powered vehicles to illegally pollute the air.

    Many e-bike manufacturers have converted that interest into sales. VanMoof, a Dutch startup often described as the Tesla of bicycles, more than doubled its orders year-over-year between January and October 2020. The growth was undoubtedly helped by its third-generation e-bikes, the S3 and X3, which launched on April 21st. The company took 4,400 orders in the 24 hours that followed, a spokesperson told News Brig. They were part of a four-month sales window that trumped the previous two years combined. VanMoof’s S3 e-bike.News Brig That growth is particularly impressive given the company’s decision to slim its portfolio this year. VanMoof had offered versions of its S2 and X2 bikes without a battery (hence why the motorized versions were branded Electrified S2 and X2) but abandoned this ‘smart bike’ concept with the S3 and X3 reveal. Cowboy, another upstart brand with a focus on technology, has experienced similar growth. Sales of its stylish commuter e-bike, which hides the battery behind the seat post, were 140 percent higher than the previous year. A spokesperson told News Brig that sales rose by 40...
