Netherlands Electric Car Share Jumps To 7.3%, Fastned Revenue Triples

April 9th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The Netherlands has long been one of the top plug-in vehicle markets. Norway far and away wins the prize for highest market share (Tesla alone accounted for 31% of new vehicle sales in March and all fully electric vehicles combined accounted for 58.5% of sales), but the Netherlands is perhaps the country most closely following Norway's lead


CCS Becoming Dominant DC Charging Standard In Europe — Will Nissan Drop CHAdeMO?

November 22nd, 2018 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Recent and upcoming EVs are designed for DC fast charging speeds of 100 kW and more, and are overwhelmingly favouring CCS as the standard charging architecture. Next-generation charging networks in Europe and the US are also favouring CCS. Despite its early lead, CHAdeMO now looks to be falling behind


Tesla Model 3 Standard Range vs. Best of the Rest – Which Affordable EV to Choose?

September 16th, 2018 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

In the coming months, with some timing and volume variations by region, you will be able to choose from many affordable, generous range, compelling, and all-around-capable EVs that are coming on to the market. Whilst the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range is arguably the most keenly anticipated of the bunch, all of these EVs are great cars, much better than any fossil fuel vehicle (FFV) equivalent


Tesla Model 3 = Most Efficient Electric Car On Highways

August 19th, 2018 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

New aggregated data from the gurus over at A Better Route Planner show that Tesla Model 3 efficiency is the highest of any production car at highway speeds, with outstandingly low energy consumption. This outstanding efficiency, combined with great supercharging speeds, makes the Model 3 the best road tripping EV in production


Fastned: DC Fast Charging Will Help Stabilize The Renewable Grid

July 11th, 2018 | by Kyle Field

Fastned took to the interwebs to loose some facts about the impact its fast charging network has on the grid. With Fastned stations operating exclusively at 50kW and above, its network is a great case study for what large numbers of fast charging sessions might have on the grid. It opened up and shared information from more than 100,000 fast charging sessions over the last 5 years - and the results are interesting


Road Trippin’ In A Tesla Model 3 vs Other Electric Cars

June 10th, 2018 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Road trips are the final frontier for electric cars to totally outshine combustion-engine vehicles (gas/diesel cars). Already clearly a better technology than combustion vehicles in every other respect, of all the electric cars currently on the market, only Tesla so far provides truly compelling road trip ready offerings. This is an area that other carmakers need to pay much more attention to if they have a hope of ever competing with Tesla’s stratospheric demand and world-leading EV sales volume


Fastned — EV Fast Charging Leadership (#CleanTechnica Exclusive)

February 23rd, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

Fastned is still the only EV charging network I know of that includes CHAdeMO, CCS, and Tesla (via adapter) charging options at all of its stations. This may seem unimportant, since Tesla has its own Supercharger network, but as Fastned co-founder Bart Lubbers pointed out in a recent interview with me, approximately half of the electric cars in the Netherlands are Teslas. As such, even with other options, many of Fastned's customers are Tesla drivers


LeasePlan & Uber To Launch EV Pilot In Amsterdam With Nissan LEAFs

September 29th, 2017 | by James Ayre

The auto leasing firm LeasePlan is partnering with the on-demand taxi service Uber for the launch of a new pilot in Amsterdam that will see 30 all-electric Nissan Leaf EVs put into the hands of uberX drivers there, according to a new press release from the companies
