January 3, 2024 - WorldOra EV News

Grist’s reporter,  Gabriela Aoun Angueira has an excellent  article titled, “Where could millions of EV batteries retire? Solar farms.” A Southern California company is showing how repurposing EV batteries for stationary storage can extend their usefulness for several years. To make renewable energy from intermittent sources like solar and wind available when it is most needed, it’s becoming more common to use batteries to store the power as it’s generated and transmit it later. But one thing about the Cuyama facility, which began operations this week, is less common: The batteries sending energy to the grid once powered electric vehicles.

The 18 Best EVs Coming in 2024 - WIRED (Great read for catching up on the latest models!) The pace at which traditional automakers are making all-electric vehicles is only increasing, and the sheer volume of EVs landing in 2024 shows this.  (My favorite tidbit of news from the article was that Kia’s EV9 will have the 800-volt charging system, allowing a 10 to 80 percent charge in under 25 minutes. But my favorite EV will always be my own 2021 Volkswagon ID4 which is still delighting me 9 months after purchase since I  have paid little to charge it. - Terri)

The first three mentioned are:

  • Kia’s EV3 electric compact SUV debuted as a concept last year and will arrive for real in 2024

  • Hyundai Ionia 5N performance upgrade: Torque and power are up to 478 kW/650 PS when you press the N Grin Boost button, and drift tech helps you maintain slide angles if you like going sideways. 

  • Hyundai Ioniq 7- has the excellent 800-volt charging system, allowing a 10 to 80 percent charge in under 25 minutes
