A recent analysis by battery-health firm Recurrent highlights that hot weather can have a significant impact on electric vehicle (EV) batteries, much more so than cold weather. It emphasizes the importance of avoiding hot parking lots and not being overly concerned about range loss during the winter. This is in line with previous advice provided by Green Car Reports.
In other news, Mini has confirmed that the Mini Countryman Electric will be making its way to the United States in the fall of 2024. While it remains unclear if all versions and their various ranges will be available in the U.S., this marks the first time the electric crossover will be sold in America.
Volvo, on the other hand, has made an announcement that it will cease production of diesel vehicles. This decision applies not only to Europe, where diesel vehicles have historically outsold plug-in vehicles, but also represents a significant shift as other European brands plan to continue selling diesel vehicles for the next decade or more. This move aligns with Volvo’s commitment to the future of electric vehicles.
Lastly, Tesla has achieved a major milestone by producing a total of 5 million EVs globally. This milestone solidifies Tesla’s position as the leading automaker in terms of EV production. With the exponential growth of Tesla’s EVs, coupled with the widespread availability of Supercharger networks for charging, it raises questions about the future of the American charging landscape.
