Supercharger with liquid-cooled cable, BMW i3 REx, Events.

Video tip I: How cool the new Supercharging with a liquid-cooled cable truly is can now be viewed in this video with a thermal imaging camera. The Supercharger can be found at Mountain view (we reported).

Video tip II: A road trip from Amersham in Buckinghamshire, UK, to Amsterdam, Netherlands in a BMW i3 turned out to be not too easy. Not only were the drivers let down by charging infrastructure but als by the car itself. Maybe the range extender kept them from preparing properly?

BMW i3 REx review, Chevrolet Citation IV concept.

Reading tip: Mr. C. Nicholson is well-versed in the EV world as he previously owned a Chevy Volt and a Ford Fusion Energy. He exchanged those for a German car and is now driving the BMW i3 REx. Obviously, he was not shy to compare it to the Volt.

Click tip: Take a look back, way before even the EV1, as before that car there was the Chevrolet Citation IV concept in 1984 and that is where the EV1 got its styling from.
