Legacy Automakers Embrace Tesla Charging Tech

Two major U.S. automakers announced this week that they will be integrating Tesla’s charging technology into their next-generation electric vehicles starting in 2025. This move is significant because it shows that Tesla’s proprietary charging standard, called the North American Charging Standard, is gaining more ground and fueling an EV charging standards war. Our team analyzed the implications of these developments and examined whether the Tesla supercharger network can handle the increased demand.

Micromobility Updates

We also cover all the latest micromobility news from around the world. Some of the highlights include:

– Apollo Scooters’ Explore 2024 prototype with built-in GPS, smart regenerative braking, self-healing tires, a Quadlock phone mount, and more
– Hilo’s smart scooter with AI computer vision for increased safety and stability
– Razor’s new electric go-kart, the Ground Force Elite
– Roam’s solar panel-powered charging and maintenance hubs in Nairobi for the electric motorcycle industry
