Network of electric car charging points will link major UK cities - Telegraph

Network of electric car charging points will link major UK cities - Telegraph | Car Charging | Scoop.it

A network of electric car charging points, which opens this weekend, will link London, Bristol, Exeter, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and north to the Lake District. Next year it will be extended to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Cardiff and Swansea. Additional charging points will be placed at service stations on the M1 near Nottingham, Sheffield and Leeds. Other charging points will be placed at the Eurotunnel passenger terminal and at Fleet Services on the M3 in Hampshire. While charging points are increasingly common in towns, their absence in between major cities is believed to have discouraged motorists from buying the cars despite generous taxpayer subsidies.

Charging up an all-electric 320 km/h racing car | Transportation

Charging up an all-electric 320 km/h racing car | Transportation | Car Charging | Scoop.it
HOW do you get more power out of an electric car than its main battery pack can deliver? Simple, turn the car's very bodywork into a battery, extract power from every bounce of its suspension system and, while you're at it, suck energy from the road surface too.

Such are the measures being built into an electric racing car capable of reaching 320 kilometres (200 miles) per hour by a UK-based consortium. Their aim is to perfect a multitude of novel electric-vehicle (EV) technologies and ultimately to transfer them to road cars. Led by Drayson Racing Technologies of Oxford and Lola Cars of Huntingdon, the 10-firm consortium also includes aerospace heavyweight BAE Systems in Warton, UK, and 3G-cellphone pioneer Qualcomm of San Diego, California. They want to improve on the range of today's EVs, says consortium leader Paul Drayson, which are normally limited to around 160 kilometres (100 miles).

"Don't judge electric cars by what you are seeing on the street right now," he says.

Society of Automotive Engineers announces electric car charging plug standard | gizmag.com | Car Charging | Scoop.it

The electric and plug-in hybrid car industry is learning the lesson of the mobile phone makers. Instead of allowing a plethora of incompatible charging plugs to sprout up, the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International hopes to forestall confusion by settling on one charging plug design for North America. SAE has selected the J1772 combo plug as the standard, which uses paired couplers to allow for both AC and DC charging using the same plug.

 

Published this week, the SAE International decision marks the first official charging standard for North American cars. According to SAE, it was the result of consultation with 190 “global experts” from the automotive, charging equipment, utilities industries and national laboratories.
