Supercharging now got even cooler as Tesla installed a liquid-cooled cable to a Supercharger in Mountain View. Cooling allows for a thinner and more flexible cable that still carries the same current. Furthermore, such a cord also has the potential for increased power when supercharging.

Hybrid taxis in the desert: Cars Taxi now added another 55 Toyota Camry Hybrid to its existing fleet of 29 hybrid taxis in Dubai. The cab company is planning big as it intends to put 7,000 hybrids in the United Arab Emirates, half of them in Dubai, as it was well impressed with the hybrids’ potential to save cost.

BYD presents V2G charging: The Chinese e6 model is now able to give and take as BYD has equipped it with technology to both charge and discharge electrical power. According to BYD, the next-gen e6 model will have a much larger capacity battery capable of delivering a 400 km range.
