AeroVironment announced a new commercial-grade charging station, offering Level 1 and Level 2 charging (up to 16A per car), and access control via Bluetooth. This means it doesn't need to be network via a cell network, saving money by not having to pay for network connectivity.

The TurboDock is also modular, meaning it can be expanded so it can charge multiple vehicles.

Pricing starts at $1,299 for the charging module, and $1,798 if you want the pedestal.

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.
