1. EV APP OF THE WEEK: FASTNED
Fastned is building a European network of fast charging stations at which electric vehicles can fast charge with energy from wind & sun.
2. EV NEWS: BBC NEWS
£3m plan for new electric vehicle charging points in North Northants. A council has been allocated nearly £3m towards the installation of new electric vehicle (EV) charging points. North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) will have to show the government that it has a viable business case for using the money.
3. EV TIP: TRAVEL SICKNESS
The trick is to reduce the number of small accelerations and decelerations of your vehicle. While one foot driving is great at harvesting energy, it can be difficult to drive in a neutral position without constantly slowing down and increasing speed even if these changes are relatively minor.
Reducing the cars regeneration setting and power setting will smooth out the driving experience for passengers.

5. EV REVIEW: EV TIPS
2025 Kia EV5 First Look: The Smaller Electric SUV Lands Bad 'n Boxy. Kia's new squared-off look continues to leverage the Telluride's styling success. Like the EV9, the EV5 wears boxy, squared-off styling clearly inspired by Kia's wildly successful gas-fed Telluride three-row SUV.
The lighting is thinner here and more futuristic, in keeping with the electric underpinnings, and the various angles and hard edges work even better on the EV5's compact proportions.
