Audi promoting their shift to Formula E

Audi pulled out of their very successful endurance racing program last year, which saw them dominate at Le Mans using hybrid-diesel power. Instead, they are moving to Formula E.

LEVIAMP ceiling mounted EV charger

Featured in a recent episode of Fully Charged (a must subscribe for any EV fan) was the LEVIAMP from EasyCharge.

This German company has come up with a clever solution for car parks to provide easy to install EV charging in locations that don’t have a wall to install a conventional destination charger on.

Chuck it on a ceiling and there’s a rotatable arm that drops down to plug into! It can be shared across multiple spots too – up to 4 parking spots for 1 charger. The LEVIAMP also doubles as a light source with LEDs. Perfect for brightening up dingy car parks. If you’d like more details on the LEVIAMP, view this PDF brochure.
