Full service fast-charging: EV Hub is a modern age gas station, or charging centre. The British firm plans to inaugurate the first two hubs by the end of this year. They will boast up to 20 fast-chargers but also facilities like restaurants or a gym to procrastinate productively while waiting for the battery to fill.

CharIn to expand: The initiative that wishes to take CCS global is making its way across the pond. Together with P3 North America, manufacturers and infrastructure providers want to make DC charging more widely available. CharIn counts Ford, GM, Tesla, and Faraday Future among its members.

CARB calculator: Electricity costs for battery electric bus deployments in California can be calculated. CARB published a tool for download that estimates costs for charging on route or at the depot.

Electric first response: Atlanta in Georgia is adding another five electric vehicles to its fleet for first responders. They will serve on the renaturalised Beltline, a former railway corridor. Eventually, the city’s agencies hope to entertain a 60 strong pool of EVs. Georgia Power helped fund the project.

Missouri’s largest utility Ameren looks to install what it calls five charging islands between St. Louis and Jefferson City. The EV charging spots would be 20 – 45 miles apart and would allow for four electric cars to charge simultaneously with different standards. Approval has yet to be granted.

More efficient H2-station: H2 Logic has presented its new hydrogen fuelling station, the CAR-200, available from the second half of 2016. Compared to current stations, it is said to have triple the capacity, while using only a third of the space.

Cloud-based analysis: XL Hybrids has introduced a new cloud-based analytics tool that measures i.e. CO2 reduction and fuel-efficiency of hybrid fleet vehicles equipped with XL3 Hybrid Electric Drive Systems. Moreover, the company says its system does not hinder other telematics devices or services.

Electric tuk-tuks for Cape Town: The South African government wants to improve public transport and issued a tender for the three-wheeled taxis. Electric variants will be favoured, authorities say. Some 80 tuk-tuks could hit the road as early as September.

USA, Manchester, ViriCiti + Simacan, BYD, H2 Logic.

U.S. cities go electric: Eight cities near Sacramento, CA, and Atlanta, GA, have formed the Energy Secure Cities Coalition (ESCC). They plan to include only alternative drivetrains in official city fleets. The coalition hopes to expand to include 25 cities and replace some 50,000 petrol-powered cars.

Manchester to clean the air: As the city will not meet EU limits by 2020 under current conditions, Manchester has proposed an action plan. Measures included increasing the number of low emission buses, promoting EV uptake, possibly implementing Clean Air Zones in the city and improving cycling infrastructure.

EV fleet tool: ViriCiti and Simacan will work together to develop a new online-tool for fleet managers. The so-called EV Fleet Analyser is said to calculate an EV’s exact energy consumption based on traffic data, weather and topography and help plan the most efficient route.

Nissan + BMW, India, H2 Logic, Oregon, Autohom.

Nissan-BMW charging alliance: The two auto makers are working together in building up fast-charging infrastructure in the U.S. Some 120 locations have reportedly been fitted with 50 kW DC-chargers. CCS and CHAdeMO exist there side by side. No wonder that other countries are longingly looking at America…

Indian e-bus: The country has presented its first retrofitted electric bus, which previously sported a diesel engine. By March, another ten diesel buses will be converted within the scope of a new pilot project.

H2 stations in Denmark: H2 Logic already received its fourth order for a hydrogen filling station from Danish Hydrigen Fuel (DHF). Starting 2016, the latter wants to operate five H2-fuelling stations across the country. The newest order was for the city of Esbjerg.

Oregon wants incentives: On the website Change.org, there is currently a petition under way, with Oregon residents demanding a 2,500 dollar sales incentive when purchasing an EV or plug-in hybrid. The U.S. state offers only a 25 percent tax credit for the installation of charging stations.

London, H2 Logic, BYD, EVgo.

Britain’s BlueCity: Bolloré calls its electric car sharing service in London BlueCity despite the cars being reportedly red. Public kick off is set for February and the French provider plans to operate 3,000 EVs in the UK capital by 2019 with matching charging infrastructure. Potentially, Manchester is next as Bolloré expects the city to issue a tender for a scheme by 2016.

Germany will get another H2 fuel station as the H2 Mobility consortium awarded a contract to H2 Logic that includes an option for a second facility. The station will be built in the north of the country in 2016. H2 Mobility aims to install 400 stations by 2023.

BYD lands in Sweden: The Copenhagen Malmö port took delivery of two electric buses from the Chinese company, a move that introduces a shipping partnership between BYD and CMP. The buses will run on local routes in Swedish Ängelholm and Eskilstuna.

German wake-up call: Hoping to increase sales of electric cars in Germany, 14 lawmakers from the ruling parties sent a letter to the country’s finance minister calling for subsidies for corporate purchasers of EVs, German paper Handelsblatt reports. And they might be successful: Coalition sources said that Chancellor Angela Merkel will back demands for a range of measures to support the EV market. In addition to the tax writedown, these may include more money to build up charging stations and for research and development — at a total cost of 3 billion euros. More details could be announced at a meeting of the German National Platform for Electric Mobility (NPE) in mid-June.

New Peugeot goes British: The Peugeot Partner can now be ordered in the UK in all its variants, meaning also as a purely-electric vehicle. The Panel Van EV has a range of 106 miles and is especially suited for multi-drop businesses. Pricing for the electric version starts at 21,300 pounds (32,680 dollars).

Tesla, Hubject, H2 Logic, BYD.

Tesla starts battery swapping: When Elon Musk was visiting the European Tesla stores last week, he leaked some interesting details. For instance, that a 4WD Model S will come by 2015. Furthermore, he expects the Giga factory to bring down battery prices by 30-40% while bigger batteries are already on the way as well as 135 kw superchargers. Those might not be necessary in L.A. and Frisco as Tesla will introduce battery swapping there.

Strengthening e-roaming: German Hubject Gmbh and Gireve SAS are joining forces to promote eRoaming thus enabling interconnectivity of the EV charging infrastructure between France and Germany. Hubject is a joint venture between BMW, Bosch, Daimler, Siemens and the utility providers RWE and EnBW. The company operates a business and IT platform connecting infrastructure, service and mobility providers.

Hydrogen station for Hamburg: H2 Logic has made a successful bid to supply the German city with a H2 fueling station. It will be based on the 70 MPa H2Station and is an initial trial before a network of 50 H2 station is eventually built by 2015. These are part of the H2Mobility Germany initiative running until 2023 with 400 planned stations in total.

BYD keeps promise: A ten-month trial with BYD’s electric bus in Canada (we reported) has proven the company’s claim. The 40ft e-bus indeed managed to run 155 miles (250 km) on one charge. This prompted Salah Barj, Director of P & D at STO to say: “The BYD electric bus was nothing like anything we had seen or tested before.” A dream come true…
