1. EV APP OF THE WEEK: OPTIWATT

Grow your impact today with Optiwatt. Save money, reduce emissions, and track costs by automatically charging at the cheapest and cleanest times each day.
 
Optiwatt is 100% free, works with any car charger or plug, and is a must-have improvement to your electric vehicle.


 

2. EV NEWS: BBC NEWS

Funding for thousands of EV charge points announced. Thousands of new electric vehicle (EV) charge points are to be installed across England, the The Department for Transport (DfT) has announced.

Some 2,400 new charging devices will be created in 16 council areas, including Oxfordshire, Norfolk and Cumbria.


3. EV TIP: RUNNING OUT OF CHARGE

If you do run out of juice, don’t panic: breakdown services have vans with on-board chargers, allowing you to gain enough juice to make it to a proper charging point. Make sure you are a member of the AA, RAC or Green Flag.

Having said that, there’s a good chance you’ll never need them, if you follow the above advice, as very few EV owners run out of juice in the real world – it seems to happen to tabloid journalists more often than not.



4. EV PODCAST: EV RESOURCE

A major announcement from Tesla and the White House, Hyundai starts an EV subscription, Ford increases their investment in EVs, and more…sit back and enjoy listening to this podcast.

5. EV REVIEW: TOP GEAR

Volvo’s XC40 

Volvo’s XC40 small SUV has been on sale since 2017, impressing with its Scandi sensibility and attention to detail.

Three years later the XC40 Recharge was the Swedish carmaker’s first fully electric offering – trying to provide a compelling alternative to the likes of the BMW iX3, Mustang Mach-E or Volkswagen ID.4 – and of course the Polestar 2 with which it shares a platform and powertrains.


BLOG VERSION EXTRA

6. EV VIDEO: ELECTREK

Electrek does Norway: So much more than electric cars! We recently visited Norway to see firsthand how the country became an electric car paradise. But as it turns out, that's just a small part of the bigger story!
 
Until next time. Have a fantastic week!
