Meet Sparky, a LEAF based Ute

Sep 18 2014 07:10 AM | Daniel in Articles

Some of the Nissan engineers at Nissan's Technical Center in Stanfield, AZ decided to play Frankenstein and 'vehicle-chopped' a Nissan LEAF and Nissan Frontier together. The results are interesting, and it's great to see that the LEAF is getting that kind of attention.

The LEAF chassis was combined with the bed of a Nissan Frontier (which seemed to fit, at least lengthwise), allowing the engineers to use the vehicle for chores around the massive 3,050 acres facility.

Check the video below, which shows off the vehicle in action, and even shows some construction shots.

Albany NYSERDA & NYPA Announce 6 New Level 2 Charging Stations at Albany Airport

Jun 12 2014 11:51 AM | Daniel in Articles

As part of the Charge NY program, NYPA and NYSERDA teamed up to install 6 level 2 electric vehicle charging stations at the Albany Airport, 3 in the long-term parking lot, and 3 in the main parking garage. The stations can produce up to 6 kW, and are free for the next 2 years.

It looks like these are Eaton level 2 units, relying on the EV Connect service, so you are going to have to install yet another app to use this charging station (EV Connect for Android, EV Connect for iOS).

A video showing off the stations can be found on the NYSERDA Facebook page, or you can read the full press release below.
