Tesla, Hubject, Los Angeles, Q-Park.
Dual charge port by Tesla: The Californians have unveiled a dual connector charge port system to support more than one charging standard on the Model S and X. In Europe and China, Tesla usually uses the Mennekes plug (Type 2) but has now added the second charge port featuring China’s new GB standard. This points to a CCS plug coming to Europe soon, given Tesla reacts to the standardization efforts that have been undertaken in a similar fashion and the EV maker had joined CharIn last year.
Hubject is hungry for more and announced its expansion to the States and China. The shareholers are on board and have freed some more millions of euro. In the U.S. the charging network provider has already established a subsidiary, Hubject Inc. which is now to be build up and find partners. The move into China is in preparation as you read and Hubject hopes to set up “a comprehensive digital charging network in cooperation with local providers and operators.”
EV sharing in LA: Los Angeles got its first all-electric car-sharing service using Tesla Model X thanks to Green Commuter. The operator leases EVs to vanpoolers during commuting hours and to car-share users or companies for fleet replacement the rest of the time. The Model X are available to the public through the Green Commuter app.
Reserve a place to charge and park cheaper is the offer Q-Park is flagging to members of the UK’s Polar charging network. The 20 percent discount applies on parking in city centres across the UK and Ireland when drivers pre-book online.

StreetScooter goes Berlin: 40 electric delivery vans and 160 charge points at 4 logistic bases are only the beginning for Deutsche Post DHL’s electrification in the German capital. 30 of the 40 homemade StreetScooters are the new large version Work L, which can hold twice the volume of the usual van. On top, the fleet is to gradually get more electric, “wherever it can as Berlin is not any odd location,” DHL board member Juergen Gerdes promised. Estimates say the Berlin mail may come fully electric by 2025, at least an exact 156 charge points with 11 kW stand at the ready by now. In total, DHL operates 3,000 StreetScooters in Germany to date and is currently gearing up to electrify 70 percent of its deliveries on the first and last mile by 2025.

UPS is a little less ambitious than its competitor above as it set a target to have 25 percent of its new vehicle purchases be driven by alternative fuel by 2020. Five years later, UPS wants 40 percent of its fleet to be gas and diesel free.
