EV enthusiasts, here’s another EV news roundup. Enjoy!

Tesla’s Asia Supercharger maps have been updated. Japan is about to get a mighty good helping of the electric Superchargers. (EV Obsession)

Also, FYI, rapid recharging of lithium-ion batteries isn’t so bad after all. (EV Obsession)

Donfeng Nissan has launched the Venucia e30, a fully electric car that might remind you of the Nissan LEAF, in China. Word on the street is that it’s venuciawesome! (EV Obsession)
