One-Year BMW i3 Review — So Close To Perfection, But A Few Things Baffle Me

January 6th, 2018 | by Jesper Berggreen

My first year with the first generation BMW i3 has left me somewhat baffled. It is perhaps the quickest car within city limits, ever. And on the twisty roads in the countryside, it will make you weary and speed blind at times. It will work those corners so hard, you will need to catch your breath after a while. The i3 is agile like nothing I have ever driven before. But something doesn't add up


A Shaking Porsche vs A Tesla Model S (GIFs + Video)

December 25th, 2017 | by Jesper Berggreen

Talking about cars in general and electric cars in particular, you are bound to get around to the subject of the launch from 0–60 mph acceleration every now and then. And frankly, it doesn't really make sense in daily life, does it? The recent hype about the new Tesla Roadster proves the point. I mean, 0–60 in 1.9 seconds? Really?

As 15,364 scientists from 184 countries just signed a dire warning to humanity for failing to act accordingly to the threats of climate change, I think it is time to refresh the 2015 publication from Norwegian psychologist and economist Per Espen Stoknes: What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming


The 1st Electric Car To Circle The World — Nissan Qashqai Conversion

November 26th, 2017 | by Jesper Berggreen

Hjalte has already seen me coming up the driveway to their house. He opens the door and greets me. I notice the electric Nissan Qashqai jacked up with one rear wheel removed. "What’s wrong with your car?" I ask. "Green won’t charge," he answers. "Nina thinks it has something to do with the charge port, and I removed the wheel to be able to look behind it."


Tesla Roadster 1 Kicked Off EV Revolution, Tesla Roadster 2 Helps To Close It Out

November 25th, 2017 | by Jesper Berggreen

I am not pretending to be any more capable of covering the shocking revelation of the second-generation Tesla Roadster than any other enthusiastic EV blogger out there. However, this event brings back that peculiar sensation I experienced in the passenger seat of this particular Tesla Roadster back in 2011. I was a petrolhead at that time

A new report from PA Consulting with the title How Long Is The Road To Driverless Vehicles? Assessing how close the Nordics are to autonomous vehicles explores what roadblocks lie ahead before the world embraces driverless and fully autonomous vehicles that provide Mobility as a Service (MaaS) to us humans


An 8 Hour Road Trip In A Nissan e-NV200 Electric Van

October 14th, 2017 | by Jesper Berggreen

In light of the just announced 150—350 kW High Power Charge system from ABB being presented in Stuttgart, Germany, this month, I think this story needs to be told now, before it is so outdated no one will care


Our Time In World Record Electric Car Parade (Just Confirmed!)

October 1st, 2017 | by Jesper Berggreen

Well, I must admit, I had almost given up on it. But then I got this message from the Danish electric car union, which had worked very hard to organize this particular attempt to beat the world record of the largest parade of electric vehicles


Denmark Goes Backward, Lowers Tax On Dirty Cars — Wha??

October 1st, 2017 | by Jesper Berggreen

If you are a reservation holder of a Tesla Model 3, I guess you would be pretty excited these days following news of the ramp up of production. Unless you live in Denmark. Then you should be worried if you will get your car at all
