Chargemap is the ideal travelling companion to help you find charging stations and plan hassle-free trips in your electric car. Chargemap is the benchmark app that is already the loyal companion of over a million EV and PHEV drivers for stress-free travelling and charging.
Chargemap’s map lists over 500,000 charge points and covers most European charging networks. It makes it so easy to locate charging stations in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Austria, Britain, Norway and many other countries across Europe.


London’s black cab drivers have joined forces with leading charging provider InstaVolt to call for more help to go electric. The Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association, which represents the majority of black cab drivers in London, wants the government to cut VAT on public charging to 5% to help reduce costs for drivers.


It may seem like a silly tip, but have some fun! Exploring the functions of your new EV and getting to know it before setting off on the open road may come in handy, both for practical and entertainment purposes. Perhaps you’ve just got a new Mercedes EQS, why not try out the massage function on the seats?

Or have some fun with your kids in a Tesla model 3 with a couple of rounds of “caraoke” or surprise them with the whoopie cushion. No matter what car you choose, have some fun exploring all the new features so you can make your daily commute or long journeys more enjoyable.



BYD Seal - Chinese EV that has established makers worried! Why does the BYD Seal have established car manufacturers worried. I put this impressive EV through it's paces on road and on track. BYD have been making batteries and battery tech for 28 years but have only recently been making cars. The Seal has some interesting technology including an LPF battery. It delivers impressive range, a good level of equipment and all at a very competitive price point.


Smart #3
Smart #3 review: Fast, fun and quirky too. Feels leaner and meaner than the Smart #1, but its looks and interior quirks might not suit everyone. Apparently quite a lot of people are making a fuss about the Smart #1 not being true to the brand because it’s not dinky like earlier models.
If you’re of the same opinion then you’ll probably not going to care much for the follow up. But the Smart #3 has one major upside: it can easily accommodate people who aren’t small either. If you’ve got an open mind this sporty coupe-style EV is well worth investigating, because it’s lots of fun.



Just a little meme to make you chuckle on a Tuesday morning!! Bet we have all been there!
Until next time. Have a fantastic week!
