Charging corridor, South Korea, Regensburg, Hyundai, California.

Franco-Iberian cooperation: France, Spain and Portugal want to push electric mobility in their regions. A 10-point-plan includes funding, support for research initiatives and expansion of charging infrastructure. For the latter, they want to open an interoperable charging corridor between the three countries. (in French)

South Korea expands infrastructure: The South Korean government wants to quadruple the number of rapid-chargers in the country by 2020, making them available at 1,400 locations. H2-infrastructure will also be developed further. The expansion is part of the country’s goal to one million EVs on the road by 2030.

Regensburger electric bus: The German city will purchase two electric buses next year, compared to the five it wanted to originally buy. The remaining three e-buses will follow in 2017. Moreover, the city considers fitting the buses with sound generators to warn pedestrians. (in German)

Hyundai partners with AeroVironment: The latter will provide the charging infrastructure at dealerships in North America carrying the 2016 Sonata Plug-in Hybrid. The 240-volt TurboCord and the EVSE-RS by AeroVironment can charge the PHEV in less than three hours.

Sticker shortage: HOV stickers allowing electric and plug-in vehicles to drive in the carpool lane in California are running out. Only 4,000 of the originally 85,000 available stickers remain. If California will raise the limit a fourth time is still unclear.
