Audi Tests Electric Car With Bi-Directional Charging
One of the reasons for creating electric cars is to help reduce the negative impact of mining for fossil fuels that power more traditional cars. Combine that with solar panels that can generate energy to charge our electric cars and it seems like a winning scenario, but now Audi wants to take things one step further with bi-directional charging.

This Is How Fast A Tesla Roadster Equipped With SpaceX Thrusters Looks Like
Ever wondered how fast a car could potentially go if it had rocket thrusters installed on them? We’re not sure how safe it would be, but thanks to @Pslavi on Twitter, he has put together a concept video that uses a bit of video editing to imagine how fast a Tesla Roadster could go (and what it looks like) if it had SpaceX thrusters fitted onto it.

EV Battery Maker Claims To Have Developed A Battery That Can Last 1 Million Miles
All batteries have a lifespan, and by that we don’t mean how long it can last on a single charge, but rather how many times it is capable of charging before it stops being effective. Given that the batteries are essentially the heart of an electric car, this is doubly important compared to regular fuel-powered cars.

UK Government Might Be Considering Paying People To Swap To Electric Cars
Cars are by no means a cheap purchase, so you can imagine that people who already own cars might not be willing to swap out to a new one, especially an electric car which still hasn’t quite gone mainstream yet. However, over in the UK, it seems that the government could be considering something rather radical.

Germany Will Require All Gas Stations To Also Offer Electric Vehicle Charging Capabilities
Range anxiety is still something that people are dealing with when it comes to electric cars. However, over the years, electric cars have improved greatly in terms or range, but the issue is that EV charging stations still quite aren’t as ubiquitous compared to gas stations, but over in Germany, that could change.

Dyson Shows Off Its Cancelled Electric Car
When we mention the company and brand Dyson, you might be thinking of the company’s fancy hi-tech fans, hairdryers, or lights, but did you also know that the company was also working on an electric car of their own? If you did not, yes, Dyson was working on it before they shelved it, and now they have taken the wraps off on what could have been.

Tesla Is Working On ‘Secret Batteries’ That Could Reduce The Price Of Electric Cars
Unlike gas-powered cars, electric cars rely heavily on its battery where it pulls multiple duties at keeping the lights on and also providing the range, the latter of which would have typically relied on gas for regular cars. This means that the battery in an EV is doubly as important and can be pretty expensive.

Researchers Use A Low-Tech Hack To Trick A Tesla Into Speeding Up Unnecessarily
Cars these days are getting smarter where they come with a variety of sensors and cameras on board that can warn drivers of obstacles. All of this seems to be paving the way towards a future of self-driving cars, but it seems that there still needs to be some work done on them, especially when they can be tricked with a simple two-inch piece of tape.

This $1 Billion Initiative Wants To Bring EV Chargers To Highways, Rural Areas
As electric cars become more common, there will also become a growing need for more EV chargers. Unfortunately, as it stands, EV chargers simply aren’t quite as common or ubiquitous compared to gas stations, but there has been work by companies to try and get more of them out there.

Tesla Disables Autopilot From Model S After It Was Bought From A Third-Party Dealer
