The federal authorities has put the kibosh on the potential for some enjoyable sounds to alert pedestrians. U.S. states are mapping out their items of a nationwide EV charging community. And the Toyota Crown Hybrid Max takes a bow. This and extra, right here at Green Car Reports.
Toyota has reconstituted its largest sedan, the Avalon, into the Crown by elevating the trip top and the roofline a bit and including some SUV cues. This “reimagined” sedan is the primary Toyota mannequin to supply its new Hybrid Max performance-hybrid system, which drives the wheels straight with electrical motor torque in entrance and in again.
The federal authorities has mentioned no to a proposal that may have allowed automakers extra freedom with EV sound design for “quiet car” guidelines—within the type of switchable or customizable low-speed pedestrian alerts.
And a variety of U.S. states are racing to submit electrical car charging-infrastructure plans, forward of a September 30 deadline to obtain funds which are a part of the $5 billion put aside for a nationwide community of stations. Concurrently, states are drawing out the Alternative Fuel Corridors wanted for charging stations to qualify.
