18 New Chargers Added in the 24 hours to Monday, April 1st 2013 + News Bits

Plugshare lists a total of 16,360 Stations
They use dynamic tracking to add new - and remove redundant, or test stations, but for those that are dropped, or removed, it is done manually, so simply adding in the new additions - does not equal the total numbers, and sometimes - new additions are listed - but need to have their duplicate entries purged. My count is 16,296 Stations. I have not listed all duplicate stations and they may not have purged them yet. I may have counted 1 as a count for one listing - but it might represent multiple chargers, hence some of the differences.

Over the last 24 hours - there have been 13 New Public Chargers added to the PlugShare network, and 1 Restricted Charger, plus 41 New Photos, and 4 New home stations being shared. 

The additions tracked are: 

  • New Public Chargers Added = 13
  • New Restricted Stations added = 1
  • New Photos Added = 41
  • New Home Stations Shared = 4

88  People Checked into Public EV Chargers today. Few Chargers added, Fewer public uses - a bit quieter day - but still not so bad!

The last item counted today - was 'Michael Checked in at Rock City, Lookout Mountain, GA

News Bits:

It's been a slow couple months for the Nissan Leaf, with sales hovering around 650 for each of the first two months of the year. Throughout the slowdown (late last year, monthly sales totals were closer to 1,500), Nissan representatives kept saying there was no need to worry, that once production got rolling in Tennessee, sales would climb back up. But they never said we'd be looking at a such a high new record. Just last week, Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn was saying...(More)

Tesla Motors issued two bits of news late last night to add to whatever we'll learn about on Tuesday. First off, sales of the Model S have "exceeded the target provided in the mid February shareholder letter" by 250 units. Second, sales of the low-end 40-kWh Model S were so low that the model has been scrapped.

In February, Tesla said in a shareholder letter that it expected "about 4,500 deliveries in
Q1" of 2013. It has instead sold 4,750 and it is thus "amending its Q1 guidance to full profitability, both GAAP and non-GAAP." The company is now delivering 500 vehicles a week, up from 400 not too long ago. We now have to wonder if the original...(More)
