Teheran, Lidl, Envision Solar, Rotterdam, Orange EV, Macau.

Teheran clears the air: To fight air pollution, the Iranian capital will implement a low emission zone from September. In the beginning, all cars with a valid plaque can enter, but regulations are said to tighten in 2017. The LEZ replaces the alternating driving bans for vehicles with even or odd license plate numbers.

Lidl plugs in: The supermarket chain has set up 20 EV charging stations at its locations in Germany. While it operates internationally, the company says it has no central plan to push EV infrastructure, but that every country can decide itself which measures to take.

Ford, Tesla, Orange EV, Boston, Elmoto.

Model E family? Ford had fought long and hard to keep that name from Tesla. Now it looks as if it could be used for a whole model series, including crossovers rather than just electrified variants. Meanwhile, Ford is doubling its Silicon Valley presence in a push for autonomous cars – something that goes well together with electrification. At the moment Ford operates a fleet of 30 self-driving Fusion Hybrid and plans to triple that number next year.

Tesla poaches again as it hires former Apple employee David Erhart. He joined the EV maker’s executive team as Senior Director of Reliability and Test. A Berkeley graduate, the chemical engineer first worked for Motorola and Medtronic before starting at Apple.

OrangeEVElectric terminal truck: Orange EV opened its order books for the all new T-series. The electric terminal truck can work 24/7 shifts in various environments, be it rail, retail or waste management. Orders placed within YE 2016 receive priority and a free telematics system.

New Tesla flagship: Boston is the next destination to get a decent Tesla store. It is located in the Prudential Tower that is powered by wind and solar energy only. Our guess is it might feature a few power walls and SolarCity panels once it opens this autumn. Meanwhile, Tesla triangulates Texas where it opened its third ‘Tesla Service Plus’ centre in Austin. The state still prohibits direct sales.

Chevy Volt review: Michael Harley tried the 2016 Volt on his 100 mile highway commute and still got 88 MPG. He was however used and apparently rather attached to the Volt predecessor and so his reviews reads as if one has to expect a big “but” anytime. But – he was happy with the ride.

Pace maker: Rio has one more sensation that appeared in the velodrome. The pace for the keirin, a Japan inspired high-speed bicycle race, is set by an electric motorbike made in Germany. The Elmoto reaches up to 37 mph and thus serves as perfect derny to get the human riders up to speed.

Lorry levies in the UK had been introduced in April this year. The new regulation wants foreign lorries to pay levies when using UK roads. These amounted to 17 million pounds (28.4m dollars) in the first four months. The money raised is the equivalent of funding to operate 140,000 street lights for a year. Or it would be enough to pay the incentives for some 3,400 new electric vehicles, says FleetNews.
