Zuojun – z60

Affordability drives our daily lives, sustainability drives Evolution’s thinking and our desire to change the way we as Bermudians get around our island. We have enough daily expenses without adding on transport and our built-in fossil fuel cost.  Combining both environmental costs and economic ones is tremendously powerful in how we respond to the challenges of climate change.  A class B electric car rivals a moped in how little it costs to propel on Bermuda’s roads on a daily basis. Let that sink in for a moment…your affordable electric car could conceivably cost you a dollar or two a day to run.

New electric car dealer aims to create buzz

August 10, 2020
The Royal Gazette - Jonathan Kent, Business Editor - Published Aug 7, 2020, at 8:00 am Bermuda is ready for a big move towards electric vehicles, says the co-owner of a new distributor who aims to feed that growing demand. Andre Labonte and his wife Lynn have launched Evolution Motors, sourcing cars from China made by Levdeo, the world’s largest electric car maker, and a 2013 start-up called Zuojun. Evolution has received its first shipment of five cars and is setting up its new showroom on Addendum Lane, Pembroke, with the aim of opening within weeks. Mr. Labonte conceded that only about 2.5 percent of cars in Bermuda were electric and take-up of the new technology was slow on the...

It’s all there ….in black and white

February 25, 2020
It’s all there ….in black and white Photo: US Dept. of Energy website Andre Labonte, MA LIC - EVolution Motors Limited - President My last couple of articles have centred around the economic and environmental arguments for Bermuda and elsewhere regarding electric vehicles and their coming transcendence and why that is inevitably a good thing. This month I thought I’d see how our American neighbours to the west are faring considering they have a true climate denier in the white house who has eviscerated the American Environmental Protection Agency. So, with that backdrop in mind, I decided I’d go directly to the US Department of Energy website and see just what they had to say about electric cars. The following is...

THE LONG TAILPIPE MYTH

February 25, 2020
THE LONG TAILPIPE MYTH Images - Courtesy of Google Pics Andre Labonte, MA LIC - EVolution Motors Limited - President The Myth: “Electric vehicles have a “long tailpipe” because they still run on fossil fuels, and therefore offer no benefit to the environment. They just move the emissions elsewhere, from the car’s tailpipe to a power plant’s smokestack.” In a word…...Wrong. An electric vehicle produces less pollution — greenhouse gas emission and local air pollutants — than their internal combustion engine counterparts. Last month I tackled battery misinformation, or in some cases lack of information around electric vehicles. How battery development has led to the latest discoveries that allow them to last longer than ever before and how most of us...

Electric Car Battery Life? – It’s not what you think…..

February 25, 2020
In the first two articles, I wrote on the advancement of electric car technology I talked about how our understanding of driving in Bermuda changed after our family got our own electric car and some of the experiences we had and the questions that arose from our own family and friends. Things like the difficulty regarding how and when to charge and our notions about range. After that article, I ran into a few people who asked about some of the impacts of the technology, both good and not so good. So in the second article, I discussed some of the misinformation out there about the idea of electric cars, why they are a paradigm shift and why it's clear...

The Lithium Ion Battery Conspiracy or the Cobalt FUD Factor

February 25, 2020
After my blog/ post last month about our electric car experiences I came across a couple of people who had some questions regarding the whole 'dangers of battery chemicals" and even some questions about the ethics of mining metals such as cobalt and nickel in countries that might not have the best track record when it comes to human rights practices. I found a couple of interesting articles regarding how information both good and bad is disseminated.

OUR JOURNEY TO A SHINY NEW FUTURE STARTS WITH AN ELECTRIC CAR

February 25, 2020
It appears Even UK drivers have gotten the memo and are starting to see the benefit of new technology. However, in spite of electric cars becoming more popular in recent years, many people still believe misconceptions about them, according to a new study cited in the British Independent by reporter Grant Bailey which was based on a poll of 2,000 car drivers. The report stated that some believed an electric car could not be driven through puddles, and some (about 5%) actually, thought electric cars were less safe than regular cars, citing construction concerns and media reports of battery explosions. Nearly 20% of respondents believed an electric car would actually slow down as the battery discharges. A spokesman for Volkswagen, who commissioned...
