  1. Kia Soul EV
    Just a quick question about charging speeds. I've had a look at the reported power being drawn by the car at a few locations using Soul Spy, EV Notify and Car Scanner and just wondered if they seem right as I was expecting them to be higher. The car is a 2015 65 plate 27kWh. EVSE cable - 1.6kw...

    Hi all, I'm a new member here, so first post please be gentle! :) I am lobbying the government to agree a workable domestic street-parking EV charging system matters in terms of meaningful climate action AND hitting the Government's own 2030 EV target. There are many UK households (like ours)...

    Hi everyone! I'm writing an article for new and potential EV owners answering some of their most commonly asked questions. Cost, in particular, is something that seems to hold people back from getting an EV. I'd love to share some wisdom from current EV owners. Would anybody be willing to share...
  8. Renault ZOE
    Hi all, I am new to the SpeakEV as I recently bought a 2015 Q210 with own batteries. When trying to charge at home the car randomly stops charging and completely shuts off. Sometimes it starts charging again but other times it doesn't until I open the door of the car and it starts again...

    I was just looking at electric planes, and the Pipistrel Velis Electro came up as having just been certified in Europe. This plane is from Slovenia, but if you look at the photo of the charging port, you'll notice it's using the Chinese GB/T DC connector rather than CCS or Chademo. I'm a bit...

    Hi, I'm a newbie about EVs and I'm here to ask for a clarification.

For example, I read that...
