1. EV APP OF THE WEEK: NEED TO CHARGE
Sharing an EV charger at work? Or maybe you're grabbing a bite to eat at a restaurant while you top up but want to let others contact you if they really need to use the charger. This is the perfect app for the Need to Charge!
2. EV NEWS: ELECTREK
Tesla says it is adding radar in its cars next month amid self-driving suite concerns. Tesla told the FCC that it plans to market a new radar starting next month. The move raises even more concerns about potentially needed updates to its hardware suite to achieve the promised self-driving capability.
3. EV TIP: SCHEDULE CHARGING SESSIONS IN THE COLD WEATHER
If you know when you plan to drive, you can schedule the charging session to make sure you heat the car and warm the battery up before you set off. This can also help regenerative braking function better.

5. EV REVIEW: ELECTRIFYING
Jaguar I-Pace. A brilliant car which drives superbly, is well built and stylish. The fact it happens to be powered by electricity is a bonus.
Even dismissing the fact that it’s powered by electricity for a moment, the I-Pace is a stunning car. As it was built from the ground up as an EV, the designers were freed of the need to house a conventional engine and created a car which looks like something from a sci-fi movie.
It’s half-way between an SUV and a big hatchback, but still looks sporty too.
