A Daily Jolt Of Electric Vehicle News

Never a dull moment in the new industry of electric vehicles, EV and their related hybrids and plug-in hybrids.

  • Welcoming A New Electric Vehicle.  Welcome to Arcimoto‘s electric vehicle, EV prototype, now on display in Eugene, Oregon, U.S. at the at Pioneer Courthouse Square, according to KMTR.  The prototype is a three wheeled EV, called the Pulse that can travel 50 miles on a charge that takes around 6 hours, will do 55mph and will cost less than $20,000.
  • Utilities Move To PHEVs.  The move to plug-in hybrids, PHEVs for utilities makes a lot of sense and Duke, with the help of FPL will have 10,000 PHEV by 2020, according to EnvironmentalLeader.
  • Electric Rolls Royce? We have seen far strange things in the past year or so but an electric Rolls Royce is by far the biggest eye raiser this year.  According to MotorTrend, Rolls Royce is considering an EV on its Phantom platform.  Since weight is not much of an issue on the 6,000 Phantom, what would probably happen is that it would receive BMW’s hybrid drivetrain.
  • Jeep EV Kits.  Good news for those following Jonathan Ward, who has already successfully converted a few Toyota Land Cruiser to electricity.  This time Jonathan is working on Jeep’s which will come in kits at a much more affordable $15,000 to 35,000 depending on options and built, via CarDomain.

That’s it for now, stay tuned for more.
