Fully Charged covers electric lawnmowers in a new video. MotorTrend shaves time off Tesla Model S Ludicrous Mode's 0-60 time. Ballard signs $30 million deal to develop fuel cells for trams in China.
If you see an AAA truck bringing someone a can of extra gas, it's rarely a big deal, but when an EV driver runs out of charge, people pay attention. Whether its a writer for The New York Times or hardcore Tesla fans, people are curious about this newfangled technology and the things that could go wrong.
In Fully Charged, actor Robert Llewellyn continuously manages to combine electric vehicle news and views with a bit of British wit. We love it. His latest offering makes us all the more jealous, since he's showing us what it's like to drive an EV at 200 miles per hour.
It's been some time since last we visited with British actor and electric car proponent Robert Llewellyn and his web-based video series, Fully Charged. The show, now sponsored by Ecotricity, has started rolling out its third season and now has available two episodes featuring a pair of truly unique – and diametrically opposed – vehicles.
Robert Llewellyn's Fully Charged video series has, over its many episodes, focused on vehicles of the four-wheeled variety. Now, as if in atonement, it has produced two successive shows centered on two-wheelers. From bicycles with electric assist to scooters to motorcycles, Llewellyn makes up for previous omissions, all in one two fell swoops.
Robert Llewellyn loves himself some plug-in cars, and he proves this on every episode of Fully Charged. In the latest video, Llewellyn discusses solar energy, including how his residential solar panel installation powers his Nissan Leaf 1,000 miles for less than nine bucks. Llewellyn finishes the episode with a drive in the quirky electric Mia microbus.
