British motorists are turning to electric vehicles in ever-greater numbers but the rapid growth of EVs is under threat from a below-par charging infrastructure warns the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

Speaking at the organisation’s 104th Annual Dinner, SMMT president Dr George Gillespie said there are already more than 115 zero emission capable vehicles on sale in the UK and the industry “has inspired the public to buy these exciting vehicles in numbers never seen before.

“But here is the twist. It is so frustrating to find broken chargers, blocked chargers, multiple apps, confusing payment schemes.

“This is quickly going to turn a lot of people off electric vehicles and all our work in developing these fantastic vehicles will be wasted.”

The warning was delivered to a guest list that included automotive industry executives, media, and other stakeholder representatives –

Kentucky cements its status as an automotive state.

OPINION AND COMMENTARY

Editorials and other Opinion content offer perspectives on issues important to our community and are independent from the work of our newsroom reporters.

Coal production in Kentucky’s Appalachian coalfields recently improved slightly, thanks to recession recovery and higher natural gas prices, bringing a temporary sigh of relief to Eastern Kentucky.

Even in its long, slow decline, coal, along with horses and bourbon, is interwoven into the songs and stories of Kentucky history, leaving a large cultural and political footprint in the wake of its gradual decline.

Meanwhile a decidedly less sexy industry has been steadily out-producing all three of these signature industries, and with the recent announcement of two massive car battery plants in Hardin County, Kentucky has fully taken the reins as an automotive state.

“We’re not only an automotive state, but we’ve secured our future,” said Gov. Andy Beshear, taking another well-deserved bow over the

By now, you could be questioning, why the OEMs do not use lithium batteries in each motorcycle since they’re so much better. The straightforward purpose is that lead-acid batteries are a commodity merchandise, and the bike designers are selecting to spend their budget elsewhere. Remember when traction management was uncommon? Like all relatively new expertise, because the economics of scale come into play, we’ll see extra OEM fitment. Presently, lithium batteries are filtering into trendy homologation liter bikes and plenty of prime tier motocross bikes, just like the 2019 Ducati … Read More

Carnomaly is Bringing Transparency to the Automotive Industry

Over the years, car sales and management (e.g, tracking a car’s history) have been challenging, and using centralized protocols has made it practically impossible to achieve efficient management and tracking systems for such a purpose. Notable reasons for this include trust issues, limited access to information from a global network of users, and lack of transparency, among several others.

For instance, it is quite difficult to access a detailed history of a car before making a purchase. As a result, automobile dealers are mostly in control of the situation, and can easily control the market’s value so that it favours only them.

On the other hand, a consumer or buyer who is unaware of a vehicle’s full history cannot make a well-informed decision about a potential purchase.

Now, after many years of no meaningful endeavour to resolve these major challenges, Carnomaly, a
