From 2023, 10 percent of parking of new buildings will need to have a place to plug in. The guidelines will be published before the end of the year.

Stricter rules in London: London’s mayor Sadiq Khan presented detailed plans on setting up Ultra-Low Emission Zones (ULEZ) from 2019. He also kicked off talks about a 10 pound increase of city toll (T-charge) from October of next year.

i3-Sharing in Dublin: Carsharing scheme GoCar now offers ten BMW i3 for short-term rental in the Irish capital. The EVs are parked at ten chargers within the city area.

Iceland plugs in: Icelandic utility Orkusalan announced that it will install an EV charging station in every community in Iceland. The first of around 80 chargers will already be erected in the coming weeks.

1,500 EVs in China: The Kandi Electric Vehicles Group, a joint venture of Kandi Technologies and Geely Automobile, plans to sell 1,500 EVs in the Chinese cities of Tianjin and Jiangyin. The cars should be delivered by the end of the year.

Fast-charging rates: The new Fastned Power subscription allows Dutch drivers to charge vehicles at any of the company’s 51 locations for 19 cents per kWh, with a 24 euro monthly subscription fee. Prices therefore drop to the same rate as if an EV were to charge at home, making it especially attractive to the many electric car owners who don’t have a garage or driveway to install a home charger.

Inverness fleet: U.K. bus operator Stagecoach has modified their Inverness fleet of electric vehicles to run longer, reaching distances of 130 mi on one charge as opposed to the previous 95 mi per charge. This could mean each bus will be able to run for an entire day before needing to plug-in.
