WAVE, battery swapping.

Reading tip: Ron Freund, director of Plug In America, and Alan Soule travelled across the pond to take part in this year’s WAVE rally. They faced European charging infrastructure in their rented Renault Zoe, which came equipped with all sorts of cables including a towing one (left unused).

Video tip: KmanAuto takes a look at Tesla’s battery swap station in California. Following a lot of general information on the station, there are some action shots at around 8 minutes into the video. The crew was definitely impressed.

Longest parade of electric vehicles.

An impressive 507 EVs gathered in Stuttgart last weekend to form the longest parade of electric vehicles to date. The WAVE (World Advanced Vehicle Expedition) is expected to have broken previous records from Zurich (305) and Norway (399), but Guinness still has to officially recognise this new World Record. The WAVE Trophy runs until June 8th through Germany and Switzerland.
