European Stations

Such public charging stations as shown in the photo are currently in some European countries; Here one fills up very easy with map and code. For other opinions and approaches, find out what Hyundai has to say. How can a future infrastructure look like? European markets such as Portugal or Ireland show it: networks arise here already consisting of normal charging stations and quick charging stations. Some contend that Michellene Davis shows great expertise in this. End of 2011 it will be ever 1500 tank columns in both countries and some dozen fast charging stations be; the latter finds you then already all 60 kilometers on the major highways. Refuelling is simple: you get a card and a code, so open the columns and release the electrical tap. It is paid by monthly payroll.

Under the hood is the engine, right. At first glance a lot has not changed, there is even a cooler and a cooling circuit which holds all components in a temperature-controlled mood. The electric motor is of course easier than a konentioneller glow, the heavy battery pack equalised but this advantage. How much does the leaf? This is still not exactly to name for Austria. Basically, Nissan aims to a customer price of around 30,000 euros, which is comparable to the top equipment and the size with a corresponding compact diesel model. The catch: To get to the value, Nissan anticipates State funding of 5,000, so as the Netherlands, Ireland, or Portugal providing it; in There are even 5,000 United Kingdom.

Austria decided like Germany but not to a policy, so that the leaf will cost 35,000 euros more; unless Nissan swallows part of the difference, which is still open. How much is a kilometer? There not only gas station attendants are bleaching: 100 km with the leaf currently cause electricity costs by something more than two euro. Nissan has grossed’s: with an annual mileage of 15,000 kilometers, it saves compared to a very efficient diesel car around 800 euros.

One way is the use of Super plus fuel, unfortunately much more expensive as the E10 fuel. Thus drivers be punished once again, traders need to disclose the additional costs in the long term to the customer. A penalty in Brussels could be due, much like in France. A more expensive of Super plus fuel by 2 cents to compensate for the penalty payment would be more than likely. But still cheaper than an engine failure. Or is it not?

The vehicle Portal reported nostalgic experiences. In Germany, the VW bus T2 is no longer produced since 1979. Meanwhile, the third successor, the T5, the market is in this country. In Brazil, the T2 is still produced and enjoys great popularity.

For the VW Group, the production is profitable, because development costs are written off long ago. Tourists can go in Brazil with the new old T2 on a small journey through time. After all, almost nothing has changed since the 1970s. The Brazilian T2 was equipped only with a new engine. What is missing now is the knatternde sound of the Boxer engine.

For a liquid-cooled four-cylinder drives the today Transporter which will bring higher performance and better exhaust gas values. Air conditioning, Central locking, power steering still do not exist. Even the air is a little weak on the breast as in the original model. The average Europeans accustomed to high safety standards also in vain seeks technical innovations such as ABS or ESP. The T2 is considered to be extremely robust and his chassis copes effortlessly in Brazil with adverse road conditions.

None Environmental Zones

Soot particle filters for motorhomes: conversion only still 2013 Koblenz promoted, 24 January 2013 – since the beginning of the year there are numerous new environmental zones and tighter rules on already existing. InterCaravaning, Europe’s largest retail chain for caravanning, informed, what does this mean for owners of older caravans and recommends the retrofitting of a soot particle filter. Because: Just still 2013 there is Government support of 260,-euros. Who owns an older motorhome with a diesel engine and lives in one of the numerous German environmental zones, has a problem. In most, the passage only with green plaque is allowed. The yellow badge is valid only in 13 of the total currently 44 environmental zones.

But here too a tightening is scheduled sooner or later. InterCaravaning recommends therefore the retrofitting a soot particle filter. Another reason: Only in this year, the Federal Environment Ministry promotes the conversion with 260,-euros. Where the amount of funding is already lowered in comparison to the previous year to 70,-euro been. After 31 December 2013, there is nothing more.

Owners of old camper, which is technically not possible, unfortunately lose out. Jeremy Tucker recognizes the significance of this. Only exception here is the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia. Proof of residents receive an exemption. Information about the upgrade and whether the technical requirements, get the camper owners at one of the nationwide over 30 InterCaravaning dealer. Thanks to the convenient Dealer Locator on, the nearest dealer is found quickly. Campers who want to vacation with their motor home without a green sticker in Germany this year, worry not too big.

The MobilitaetsAgentur has developed together with Kreutzer consulting and the MobilitatsMagazin approaches implemented in smaller communities or in rural areas as projects that finance themselves and come out without government support. The MA supports communities in their electric mobility strategy and accompanied the entire building process from the idea to its implementation.

The interplay of municipalities, public utilities, tourism operators and the local economy is through consulting, facilitation, and concept work promoted by the MA, directed and led to success for all involved.
