As well as helping drivers find parking spaces, the JustPark app also allows you to rent out your EV charging station if you have one at home. It’s an innovative way for EV owners to generate a little extra cash — you can set your own price. As more charging points become available, more drivers may turn to electric vehicles, creating a more sustainable industry.


Google Maps Is About To Get A Lot Better For EV Charging. Attention from the biggest name in navigation should help finding an EV charger suck just a little bit less. Artificial intelligence is everywhere now. It's all over earnings calls from companies trying to appear with the times. It's writing lazy high schoolers' essays. It's powering clunky new wearables that tech reviewers hate. Hype and buzzwords aside, some companies are actually putting AI to good use.


Get advice from the EV community. My top tip when planning an EV journey is to take advice from other EV drivers who have been there before,” says Melanie Shufflebotham.

“Most EV brands have a forum where you can seek advice from drivers of the same car, such as the Nissan Leaf Owners forum, the Kia e-Niro Owners forum and many more.”

She continues: “Also, when you are planning your journey, make sure you check out any comments from Zap-Map users for valuable info. On Zap-Map you can check out the chat channel on individual charge points, and you will see feedback on charge experience and other info, such as whether there is a coffee shop nearby – plus pictures to help you locate the charger.

“And don’t forget to check-in on Zap-Map when you charge to help others!”



Join us for our second year in Harrogate, Yorkshire for the world's number 1 home energy & electric vehicle show, Everything Electric NORTH (formerly known as Fully Charged LIVE), from the 24th - 26th May 2024! Everything Electric NORTH is a fun-filled, knowledge-packed festival of electrification showcasing thousands of electric vehicles of all shapes and sizes plus the latest clean energy technologies.


BMW 5-Series Touring
The BMW 5-series Touring has been the vehicle of choice for decades when it comes to carrying loads of stuff in style. From the very first generation, it has been setting the benchmarks against which other premium wagons were measured. Understandably then, the arrival of its first fully electric version is a big deal.
The all-electric i5 Touring models sit at the top of the range. The entry models come with diesel and diesel-hybrid powertrains, while the top shelf is reserved for the two battery-powered models. As you can expect, the new i5 comes with bags full of new tech and performance to tick every box but it all comes at a price. Quite a steep one at that.



You can power your home for 21 days with a Chevy Silverado EV and GM’s new bidirectional charger. GM Energy just debuted vehicle-to-home (V2H) bidirectional EV chargers – here’s how GM’s EVs will keep the lights on. Once installed, GM Energy’s home EV chargers will enable customers to send power from a compatible GM EV to their home in the face of increasing power outages across the US.
Until next time. Have a fantastic week!
