Internet sleuths downloaded the addresses and are creating a map so far listing the canadian locations first while updates are ongoing a supercharger network is already the largest ev fast charging network in the world and this list of newly planned station shows that the automaker isn’t slowing down tesla’s network is one of the company’s greatest assets as other

Frankfurt stock exchange as europe’s largest ipo by market capitalization porsche has their shares rise on thursday to give them a market valuation of 84 billion euros that actually overtook the former parent company of volkswagen group up until its recent public listing porsche had existed as part of the volkswagen group which saw an executive shake-up if this

Just passed july the stated purpose for listing porsche was for volkswagen group to cash in and invest heavily in electrification volkswagen group has already chosen their course for electric some time ago but the breadth and scale of battery production and supply contracts have been announced and they need a lot of money to pay for those looming deals volkswagen

Groups certainly got that as the porsche marquee gave them a big financial boost despite the overall downturn of the market we expect to hear more exciting ev news from the auto group still crossing our fingers for increased usa production mercedes-benz says that electric vehicles will dominate cars on the road particularly luxury evs the automaker ceo says that

He sees the switch to luxury evs happening step by step within this decade mercedes plans to become an all-electric brand within this decade launching an ev alternative for every model they have by the year 2025. furthermore all new electric vehicle architectures will be built for electric only models from 2025 and onward in an interview with cnbc’s jim cramer

Road trip with an electric car he said quote recently i drove a tesla model 3 on an electric road trip from southern california to portland and back the total distance was around 2 200 miles with the bulk of the driving happening over the course of five days three up and two down and i only waited for a charger for about 25 minutes total over the whole trip he

Went on to say quote i will reiterate again that we did not plan the route ahead we didn’t plug our trip into abrp or other route planners we didn’t stick to a specific speed so we could make our charging plan we changed routes frequently by whim we charged when or where we felt like doing so or where there was a restaurant we were interested in none of this was

An issue it was just a regular road trip but less polluting more pleasant and cheaper okay it is opinion time i really don’t have too much to say about today’s story so i’m going to ask if you have questions for me in the next episode coming on monday a channel is still small enough that i can promise that i will answer all of your questions someday it won’t be

Possible but at least right now it is so go ahead ask me anything and you’ll get a response on monday if there were enough questions then it might warrant a totally different video but we’ll have to wait and see thanks for your comments i look forward to it in today’s community comment found on youtube a channel called rb says absolutely right toyota’s ev window

I think that’s too bad about japan i still hold out hope that they could turn it around but after reporting day after day of other automakers scrambling to secure the future my hope is starting to wear down as far as toyota other smaller companies are still jumping into the game so they have a bright future ahead of them and that kind of causes some comparison to

My mind rivian light year re-automotive even canoe if there’s room for them then i would hope that toyota has some kind of middle ground space that they could claim now i think about it it seems plausible that toyota could become smaller but still a household name maybe one of the car companies like suzuki mini or something like that of course i know that toyota

Has other japanese ventures as a conglomerate kind of like mitsubishi with their heavy trucking and so on and so forth but as far as a car company is concerned it’s crazy to think still crazy all after all this time thanks for watching quick charge by electric i’m mikey g and i hope you have a great day
