    From 0 to 600 in Less than 3 Years, Electrify America is on a Roll!

      May 2, 2018 in Chicopee, Massachusetts, Electrify America opened their first Ultra-Fast Charging Station. Less than three years later they have 600 Ultra-Fast Charging Stations with 2,600 fast charger connections.

    Electrify America has released that they will have 800 Ultra-Fast charging stations with 3,500 fast charging connections by early 2022 covering 47 states and the District of Columbia.


    Currently Electrify America is working on new Ultra-Fast charging stations in Hawaii, South Dakota, Wyoming and Vermont that will complete the 47 states. Electrify America says they are also opening additional stations in Montana, Minnesota and New Hampshire, states with a small EV charging network presence. States that have passed legislature such as Washington state which starting in 2030 will ban the sale of new ICE auto's will have significant expansion of Ultra-Fast charging stations.

    Electrify America Ultra-Fast Charging Stations support 150 kW charging which adds 7.5 miles of battery per minute for capable BEVs in metro stations and highway locations that support up to 350 kW chargers which add 23 miles of battery per minute. Select stations will have solar panel canopies that not only give shade to customers while charging but help to minimize the impact on the local electrical grid via a battery storage system.

    How many will actually work and/or charge at their rated rate? 

    Unlike many of the other companies where your right, broken or reduced performance for charging, Electrify America is very focused on delivery of performance especially since VW BEV's are tied to them at 800V Charging. 

    EA has to also file quarterly reports to CARB on state and national performance.

    Electrify America is very focused

    That's advertising copy, not necessarily actual fact/truth.
    A quick Google search shows multiple hits on very recent EA charger issues; they can say "we're dedicated" all day & night, but the proof is in the puddin'.

    As a rule of thumb; the louder you have to proclaim something, the more likely it's foundation is shaky.

    Yes in these early days, everyone seems to want to point the finger to the charger and yet you can Bing or Google and will find plenty of people that believe it is the software causing the problems in charging be it at EA or other charging locations.

    Plenty of Forums that seem to find issues but have to question if it is really EA or the OEM.

    Just like fueling where you have a pump and a basic system to move the liquid, electric charging systems are also pretty basic and straight forward and will push the full load unless they are informed of a limit by the auto.

    This is where I think Tesla, GM, FORD, Nissan and every other EV auto company will have challenges in the software that communicates with the charger to properly identify what speed the power can be pushed into the battery pack.

    I do believe this will get resolved much like how gas stations figured out they get water in their tanks and as such put filter systems to remove dirt, water, etc. as they pump fuel to an ICE.

    Software updates will have to be done to correct oversights of electrical communication.

Factorial states that this sentiment is true and has been held over the last 138 years till now.

    Mazda unveils the Iconic SP concept

    At the 2023 Tokyo auto show, Mazda unveiled a sports car concept. Originally named Vision Study Model, the Iconic SP, utilizes an interesting engine combination. This hybrid-rotary-powered sports car uses the twin-rotor rotary engine as a generator to recharge the batteries. Iconic SP is around 10 inches longer than Mazda’s compact Miata. Although Mazda hasn't disclosed the number of electric motors, they are the main propulsion system. As a range-extending EV, that rotary engine doesn’t dr


    Mazda CX-70 Delayed Until 2024

    Since the introduction of the Mazda CX-90, a smaller SUV has been in the pipeline. The CX-70 was supposed to go on sale at the end of this year but has been delayed until 2024. Mazda is aiming to offer more SUVs for American customers.  This means that the CX-70 will compete alongside the CX-90 is the mid-size SUV segment.  Europe already has the CX-60, and Mazda said the CX-70 is essentially the same with a wider body. CX-70 will have a shorter wheelbase than the CX-90 due to it being a tw
