EVs To Revolutionize Postal Services, & More

October 7th, 2019 | by Tomek Gać

Parcel and Postal Expo is the largest event for courier services in Europe and it is taking place in Amsterdam this year.

My mom, on the other hand, loves them. She’s owned a number of different vans and minivans over the years. Her last two vans were Dodge Grand Caravans. She really likes them — enough, apparently, to go for three in a row


First EV Built In Australia Is No Tesla Killer

April 1st, 2019 | by Steve Hanley

Last year, EV sales in Australia were 0.2% of total sales. A tiny startup near Brisbane hopes to change all that but could use just a smidgen of help from the federal government.
