Bolloré electrifies London: After taking over Source London and its 1,500 charging points (we reported), the Bolloré subsidy IER will bring its electric carsharing scheme to England’s capital in 2015. The company runs e.g. the car-sharing service Autolib’ in Paris. In London, it plans on starting out with 100 EVs and increase its fleet to 3,000 electric cars by 2018.
Charge and fly: Seattle’s Sea-Tac airport has recently installed another 36 electric vehicle charging stations at their main-terminal parking. Together with the already exiting 12 charge points, this makes it the largest provider of any North American airport. The 48 stations are available to all plug-in drivers on a first-come, first-served basis.
New fast chargers in CA: A total of 46 NRG eVgo charging points are already online or are currently being installed there. And that is just the beginning – according to the company, it has received around 200 orders in the Golden State.
48 Amps from ClipperCreek: The new HCS-60 charging station was conceived for private and company usage and can be installed in- and outside. The 240 V, 48 Amp, level 2 charging point comes with a 3-year warranty and 25-foot charging cable. The starting price is set at 899 dollars.
Locate, charge, pay: PlugSurfing will give a sneak preview of its new app at the Cebit that makes it possible to easily locate and pay at charging stations. The app will be rolled-out across Europe in the second quarter of this year.
