14,000 EV Charging Station promised before the end of 2011

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

The Electric Vehicle Project is a $230 million program half funded by the U.S. Federal Stimulus Package and under the direction of ECOTALITY (NASDAQ: ECTY), has snared another retail partner as it looks to expand the roughly 1,200 charging stations currently in place to the 14,000 units promised before the end of 2011.

IKEA announced it will join the likes of Macy’s (NYSE: M), BP (NYSE: BP), Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) and Sears (NASDAQ: SHLD) in hosting EV charging stations at select locations as part of the infrastructure program rolling out in specified regions of the United States.

At least 10 stores in Arizona, California, Oregon and Washington are being considered to host the EV chargers. Participating stores must agree to maintain the installations and report data use and those selected will get charging stations equipped to power at least two vehicles.

Massachusetts new EV charging station, 142 new stations

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

Masha Traber would prefer to use her electric scooter to tool around the Lexington area for work during the summer, but because of its short range and lack of charging stations, she often has to resort to using her car for longer trips.

So she was the ideal audience for an event state officials held yesterday on Lexington’s Battle Green to debut the new electric vehicle charging stations to be installed around the state, including three in her town.

“I’m totally excited about the new stations because they will expand my ability to ride to Cambridge,’’ Traber said.

Massachusetts officials hope the new charging outlets, 142 stations in 25 communities statewide, will not only make driving more convenient for existing electric-vehicle owners, but will compel other consumers to help the environment by buying them, too.

Most of the stations will be in common commuter or traveler spots - downtown parking areas or garages, MBTA lots, schools, businesses, or shopping malls - and will be owned and operated by municipalities on public land, and by property owners on private land, who will set rates for recharging.

The charging stations are chest-high boxes that can be placed in front of a parking space. The new Chevrolet Volt takes four to five hours to fully charge at these stations and has a 40-mile range.

Many of the stations will be part of ChargePoint Network, run by California-based station maker Coulomb Technologies Inc. and partially funded by the Department of Energy. Continue reading “Massachusetts new EV charging station, 142 new stations” »

Toyota (TM) Plug-in’s and ALL Electric RAV4 showcased

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Toyota’s eco-friendly autos are center stage at a Little Tokyo event this weekend showcasing new technologies and designs from Japan.

Visitors to the Little Tokyo Design Week area can peek inside the Prius Plug-in hybrid, the RAV4 EV battery-electric vehicle and the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Hybrid vehicle that are sitting in the plaza beside the Japanese American National Museum.

The Prius Plug-in will be able to run for 13 miles on power from its Lithium-ion battery, according to Toyota. More than 160 of the vehicles are already being driven in the U.S. as a demonstration program before sales start in earnest next year.

Toyota is working with Tesla on the electric RAV4, which is also expected to become available to buyers in 2012. Meanwhile, the automaker plans to spread more than 100 of its advanced fuel-cell vehicles around the country by 2013 through another demonstration program, with hopes of bringing the technology to market by 2015. 

The rest of the event, which lasts through Sunday, involves more than 15 steel storage containers acting as temporary exhibit space.

The Giant Robot retail chain has a makeshift gallery featuring products such as a “crunching dog” USB stick with a model canine doing sit-ups on the end. There’s a “Robot Box,” with various automatons and other machines. Representatives from USC, UCLA and SCI-Arc have their own boxes too.

Near the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, there’s an extended garden set up on stilts with tomatoes, carrots and beans.

Tesla Motors (TSLA) Raises addtional $232 Million with a secondary stock offering and private placement.

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Edouard Prous, CTO of EVCARCO Inc. (OTC: EVCA)

Tesla made its name building high-powered, high-priced electric sports cars for the glitterati. The company’s iconic, $109,000 Roadster, introduced in 2008, was never meant for the mass market. Its production run will end at a mere 2,500 cars.

Now, Tesla is leaving its days as a boutique automaker behind. The Palo Alto company, founded in 2003, will make the jump to full-scale production with its next car, the Model S, to be built at the old New United Motor Manufacturing Inc. factory in Fremont. Next year, the company plans to assemble 5,000 of the electric sedans at the plant. In 2013, that number should reach 20,000. The Model S will cost $57,400 to $77,400, depending on the capacity of its battery pack.

Happy 155th Birthday Nikola Tesla

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

On July 10, 1856, Nikola Tesla was born in what is now modern day Croatia. He would go on to study electrical engineering and lay the groundwork for much of theNikola Tesla technology that we take for granted in modern society. Alternating current, electric motors, radio, radar, and wireless energy transmission are just a few of the high water marks in his career. He was also best buddies with Mark Twain. Celebrated in his time, Tesla fell into relative obscurity after some failed grandiose projects and patent battles. He died in 1943 with little money to his name in a New York hotel room.

After falling out of popular history for a time, his prestige has increased in modern times. Tesla’s status as a wronged genius, with a dash of mad scientist thrown in, has grown his legacy substantially. His likeness has appeared in film, comics, and his name was adopted by the makers of the all electric roadster (Tesla Motors; TSLA).

Happy Birthday Mr. Nikola Tesla

Japense News Reports: Mitsubishi unveils low-cost version of i-MiEV Electric Car

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

The company announced on July 6 that the new i-MiEV will have a sticker price of 2.6 million yen, but the final cost for consumers after government purchasing subsidies will be 1.88 million yen, well below the 2 million yen mark. The price cut was made possible by reducing the number of batteries onboard, which will reduce the car’s range but also make it more accessible, and the company hopes the move will lead to wider-scale adoption of the electric car.
