    West Coast Electric Highway Turns 10 Years Old and Gets an Upgrade!

      British Columbia to Baja California (BC to BC) West Coast Electric Highway has served millions in ensuring there was basic electric charging for battery electric vehicles. Now a major change is coming to the WCEH.


    The west coast green highway has served millions and the website has been a well used source to ensure all trip planning allowed for proper charging options to those using BEVs to go on a road trip.


    Level 1 & 2 chargers with the occasional Level 3 fast DC charger has been the norm over the 10 year life for the WCEH. Now Washington and Oregon is moving forward to enhance this by contracting with EVCS who also purchased a series of charging sites in both states and will work with local state and county agencies to upgrade the 50kW DC chargers with CHAdeMO ports used by Nissan leafs to current high speed DC chargers with both CHAdeMO and CCS connectors.

    These stations are spread out among I5, I90 and Highway 101 on the coast.

    The benefits of this will be the following:

    • Fast chargers every 25 to 50 miles along select routes
    • Close proximity to freeway ramps
    • Convenient parking
    • Located in areas with secondary activities like restaurants and grocery stores.
    • Easy access to picturesque locations like Oregon's Crater Lake, Multnomah Falls, Painted Hills, Washington's Snoqualmie Falls and Skagit Valley.

    44 stations in Oregon and 12 stations in Washington have the following venues when it comes to charging needs:

    • Ten (10) city properties (convention centers, visitor centers, parks, etc.)
    • Nine (9) grocery stores
    • Eight (8) restaurants
    • Eight (8) miscellaneous properties ( Country stores, transit centers, office buildings, etc.)
    • Seven (7) hotels and or motels
    • Six (6) gas stations
    • Five (5) Casinos
    • Three (3) shopping malls.

    The WCEH is the largest contiguous network of DC fast chargers in the North America giving confidence to travel up and down the west coast.


    This is a welcome upgrade to the PNW and one of the largest expanding electric highway systems currently in North America.

  • Chevy Estimated Range for Silverado EV Work Truck Raised to 450 miles

    When Chevrolet initially took the wraps off the Silverado EV last year, GM had estimated up to a 400 mile range based on its own calculations.  As the Silverado EV has made its way through development, it went for EPA certification and came back with 50 miles more than GM's estimate.  With this new EPA certification, the Silverado EV has an over 100-mile advantage over its only on-sale competitor the F-150 Lightning Extended Range (320 miles). The Silverado EV will launch first in WT trim with t


    All New 2024 Toyota Tacoma Yearns For Adventure

    The Toyota Tacoma has been the best-selling mid-size pickup in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. Holding such an important place in the lineup, Toyota has been very conservative with updates in the past.  The outgoing generation ran for a full 7 years, but even that was based on a platform that dates all the way back to 2004.  For 2024, the Tacoma sheds the old platform entirely and joins the Tundra and Sequoia on Toyota's new TNGA-F global truck platform.  The 2024 Tacoma is the latest (and final)


    The Ford Ranger Raptor Finally Comes to the US

    After years of being forbidden fruit offered only in overseas markets, Ford has finally deemed the Ranger Raptor worthy enough to bring to the U.S. The biggest reason for the U.S. not getting the prior version was its standard diesel power and the inability of the platform to take a sizable V6 engine. When Ford redesigned the 2024 Ranger (read more about the 2024 Ford Ranger here), they made sure to alter the engine bay and chassis to accommodate a V6. Powering the Ranger Raptor is a 3.0-li
