GM-Free Charging, Jaguar EVs, Canoo vs. Tesla Structural Battery: At present’s Auto Information

Canoo has a structural battery, but not like Tesla. Jaguar is looking for an EV platform. And GM offers free electric vehicle charging late into the night. This and more here at Green Car Reports.

Jaguar recently canceled its all-electric XJ flagship, but it is now looking for a new platform to underpin a future line of electric vehicles for the British brand, its CEO told Autocar on Wednesday.

GM is offering EV owners – with an eye on you, Chevy Bolt EV owners – a fixed price from renewable energy with a special benefit: free charging from midnight to 5am.

The startup Canoo demonstrated in presentations last week that it is taking a unique approach to the battery for its skateboard platform. Green Car Reports caught up with its CTO Pete Savagian and made it clear that this approach differs from Tesla’s structural battery plan from module to vehicle.
