Jolta is finalizing its selection of cars and other EVs and will launch its first flagship store in the fourth quarter of 2020 in Miami. The company plans to open fourteen other dealerships in other major U.S. cities by 2025.

At Jolta, customers will experience in person a unique selection of vehicles carefully curated based on design, battery range, performance and safety, taking the burden of research off the consumer.

“Our selection of EV brands will range from modern to classic, kid-friendly, and even vintage-inspired — there will be something to fit every lifestyle,” said Nick Cohen, the CEO of Jolta. A trained staff of EV experts will facilitate on-site test drives and address customers’ questions about vehicles and charging.

Jolta will also offer all kinds of charging solutions for residential and commercial properties, including equipment and installation services.
Customers can enjoy onsite charging stations and a full-service lounge with snacks, beverages, and complimentary Wifi, where they can work or unwind while their vehicles charge.

Firms Targets EV Fleets

February 28, 2020

Doering Fleet Management and eIQ Mobility are partnering to provide fleets with seamless EV deployments. eIQ Mobility provides fleets with highly accurate EV Feasibility and Sustainability Assessments using EValuate, their online decision platform. Clients receive detailed analytics on which EVs are the best fit for their applications. EValuate defines which locations to prioritize for practical EV deployment, specifies the charging infrastructure, and details anticipated Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) with carbon emissions implications.

With these EV assessments completed, clients can work with Doering Fleet Management to source and finance EVs and associated charging infrastructure, manage the EV fleet through their lifecycle, and remarket their EVs at the end of term, using Doering Fleet Management’s leading EV management technology and EV expert consultants.

General Motors’ vision of an all-electric future is coming into clearer focus and gaining momentum with a $2.2 billion investment at its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant to produce a variety of all-electric trucks and SUVs.

GM’s first all-electric truck will be a pickup with production scheduled to begin in late 2021. This will be followed soon after by the Cruise Origin, a shared, electric, self-driving vehicle unveiled by Cruise in San Francisco last week. Detroit-Hamtramck will be GM’s first fully dedicated electric vehicle assembly plant.

“Through this investment, GM is taking a big step forward in making our vision of an all-electric future a reality,” said Mark Reuss, GM president, during a press event at the plant with Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and other local and state officials. “Our electric pickup will be the first of multiple electric truck variants we will build at Detroit-Hamtramck over the next few years.”

When the plant is fully operational, this investment will create more than 2,200 good-paying U.S. manufacturing jobs.

GM will also invest an additional $800 million in supplier tooling and other projects related to the launch of the new electric trucks.

Detroit-Hamtramck currently operates on one shift of production and builds the Cadillac CT6 and the Chevrolet Impala. Approximately 900 people are employed at the plant. As previously confirmed, the plant will be idled for several months beginning at the end of February as the renovations begin. 

The plant has built more than 4 million vehicles since opening in 1985. Hourly employees at Detroit-Hamtramck are represented by UAW Local 22.

Editors at Autotrader recently scored currently available new vehicles that feature a plug, ultimately naming the 12 Best Electric Vehicles for 2019.

“There are a lot of very good electric vehicles available at a wide variety of price points today, and the technology for EVs continues to grow and evolve, said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader.

“EV shoppers should remember that despite an often-higher initial purchase price when compared to gasoline-powered cars of the same size, for the most part, EVs are more rewarding to drive and require less maintenance than a traditional automobile.”

Vehicles were not ranked in this list. Every pick earned a combined average score of at least 3.8 out of a possible 5.

Autos on the list include the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt Premier, the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring and the Volvo XC60 T8 Momentum.

Also included were a number of 2019 models such as the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid limited, the 2019 Honda Clarity and the Kia Niro EV EX.

Electrify America, a network of ultra-fast chargers for electric vehicles, has submitted a formal proposal to the Unicode Consortium, the governing body for emoji creation, to introduce the first-ever "Electric Vehicle With Charger" emoji for smartphone keyboards.

The submission announcement, and a corresponding petition on Change.org, came just two days ahead of World Emoji Day on July 17.

Electrify America also asked consumers to show their support for the emoji on social media with the hashtag #EVmoji.
