Rivian Replace, Lucid Air Tires, BMW Three Collection PHEV Driving Report, EV Fleet Charging: Right this moment’s Automobile Information

The Lucid Air receives special Pirelli performance tires for electric vehicles. Rivian postpones deliveries to September. We take a look at the tech-savvy 3-series plug-in hybrid. And is the network ready for large EV delivery fleets? This and more here at Green Car Reports.

BMW is strengthening its plug-in hybrids with more electric range and improved performance. On our first drive of the 330e plug-in hybrid, we found it strong in terms of electric range and MPG, but briefly on the driving experience we expected from its 3 family tree.

The greenhouse gas emissions saved by electric fleets depend heavily on the “when, where and how” of charging electric vehicles, according to a recent study by the University of Michigan – especially charging habits, which influence battery life.

Specially designed Pirelli tires, designed to cope with the weight and needs of high-performance electric vehicles, are making their debut in the Lucid Air electric sedan, the companies confirmed last week.

On Friday, Rivian announced an update on deliveries of its R1T electric truck, which will now be postponed to September. If Rivian is the first to deliver an electric truck, who’s next?

And over the weekend we took a look at whether today’s network could cover the entire demand from the influx of electric delivery fleets? Mostly yes, NREL researchers found in a new report.
