Sent back the +Mitsubishi Motors North America i MiEV and always sad to see it go. It's a fun car and perfect fit for urban driving.

Now onto another car that is already impressing me a heck of a lot. Anyone car to guess? It's in second generation and is currently the third version of a very polarizing car.

I don't want to give too much away, just yet :)

e we still debate hydrogen fuel cell, one thing is for certain, batteries have been the breakthrough juggernaut the past 8 years. As much as I love the various lithium chemistries, I feel flow cells are the way to go.
The Quantino http://rdir.de/r.html?uid=A.B.BCO-.Dw2.BOvJB.8cT0_80dbmP7jF2pSdI8Rg got the green light to hit the road in Europe, virtually, according to the Luxembourg carmaker. Testing will begin this year to prove NanoFlow’s claim of a 1,000 km/621.370 miles, via Electrive.

No real news here as Tesla confirms the Model 3 unveiling March 31, after earnings report released yesterday. Tesla is keeping the 2014 US$35,000, before incentives, maybe as a way to steal some thunder from the GM Bolt priced higher?

The real news is that the company plans on offering the performance version first, which is interesting considering this is supposed to be the affordable Tesla.

In any case, the Model 3's success hinges on the completion of the Gigafactory. Musk said the company is supposed to be solvent this year after strategically building the foundation at a loss until now.

Tesla's long-term strategy to bring electric vehicles to the masses appears on track, with the company today confirming that its long-anticipated, more affordable Model 3 sedan will be revealed on March 31.

And since a point is usually backed by three good points, renewable energy, (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) set a new annual record of almost two-thirds (63.85 percent) of the 16,485 MW of new electrical generation placed in service in the US during calendar year 2015.

The future is here already.

Setting a new annual record, renewable sources (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) accounted for almost two-thirds (63.85 percent) of the 16,485 MW of new electrical generation placed in service in the US during calendar year 2015.

Thus the final nail in the coffin of traditional energy businesses is driven in?

"...wind and solar prices prior to subsidies that are in the zone of 3, 4, 5, 6 cents per kilowatt-hour [kWh] unsubsidized..." according to Michael Liebreich, founder and chairman of Bloomberg New Bloomberg New Energy Finance in this great article from Renewable Energy World India 2013.

http://www.renewableenergyworld.com/articles/2016/02/you-can-t-stop-the-growth-of-renewables-technology.html?cmpid=renewablegeothermal02112016&eid=291108073&bid=1307434
At the pace that renewable energy is growing, by 2040 the U.S. will be deriving 24 percent of its electricity from renewable energy sources, an increase from 4 percent today.

Case in point when debating a supposedly softening demand with the Model S.

I guess I can say it now!

I'm excited to announce that we are working on a local FM radio in Long Beach, California where I will have a spot or two on e-mobility and maybe more, coming soon.

Anyone interested in covering local news and sports, please contact me or share your thoughts on the site.

Clean energy stocks are up, while traditional energy stocks continue to wildly fluctuate. Hard to fathom what there is not to get from this picture :)

http://www.renewableenergyworld.com/articles/2016/02/renewable-energy-finance-outlook-2016-the-year-of-the-green-dollar.html?cmpid=renewablegeothermal02112016&eid=291108073&bid=1307434
Last year was a record year for renewable energy finance. According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, investment in clean energy increased in China, Africa, the U.S., Latin America and India, driving the world total to its highest ever figure of $329.3B, up 4 percent from 2014 and beating the previous record set in 2011 by 3 percent. However, 2016 should give it a run for its money, so to speak.

SELF-HYPOCRISY AND BASIC SANITY

It could happen that if we were really honest with ourselves, if we allowed space for ourselves, we automatically would know that the subtlety of self-hypocrisy is always there, without fail. Even if you had great power, great will power to override these obstacles, still you would know. There still will be a very faint but very sharp, very delicate and penetrating understanding that something is not quite right. That is basic sanity, which continues all the time, without fail.

How true!

Unplugged Performance making Tesla cars even better than they are, CarNewsCafe.com co-founder, Motor Pres Guild (MPG) member, Nicolas tirelessly works to make electric vehicles mainstream
Introduction

Nicolas is an international published writer who has been covering the electric vehicle industry since 2006 with several media outlets, such as Michelin's Challenge Bibendum, TorqueNews, The Examiner as the National Electric Car Examiner. He founded CarNewsCafe.com with fellow journalist veteran Aaron Turpen, as well as contributes for Teslarati, and is a member of the Motor Press Guild (MPG). The connections he has made over the years and experience has given him a unique perspective on the electric transportation industry.

Nicolas now spends his entire time dedicated to Unplugged Performance, a company next to the Tesla Design Center in Hawthorn, California, making Tesla cars even better than they already are. With locally made carbon fiber parts, suspension tuning, headlights, interior and other high-quality modifications, Unplugged Performance stands out for its quality products, personalizing Model S cars around the world. Nicolas is very proud to be a member of this incredible team of dedicated professionals ranging from Ferrari Formula 1, to aeronautics and boating engineers.

While his first car recollection was the tail-end of a friend's Bugatti at the age of six, he has been an Alfa Romeo collector having grown up around Ferrari and Maserati and more. Then one day he test drove an electric AC Propulsion eBox and a Tesla Roadster in 2007. It was then that the light bulb went on. The electric transportation platform is the way to go. You can find out more about his passions and interests on Electricnick.com.

I would say beyond amazing when it comes to Nuci. The story is sad but it serves to help a generation of young musicians often left to follow their passion sometimes to detrimental results. Nuci inspired me. A place where young musicians can come rehearse, buy affordable music instrument but most of all, have access to affordable healthcare and health professionals. Simply amazing and inspiration to us all. Hope to see more hubs like these around the country and worldwide.

When you call, they quote different prices, $82 to 97 and no guaranty on the price. Close to $20 without knowing until you get there. Nice.
