I was holding myself back from writing my Part 2 of the connected car series.

Narsi, my batchmate from IIMC, was the joint organiser of Everex, an EV exhibition. Ilanded up at his invitation and had a good time there. The venue of Everex was the Hitex Exhibition Centre in Hitech City. By the way, this was also the venue of the Entrepreneurship Summit, which had Ivanka Trump as an attendee. I was surprised to see more than 230 people turn up to attend. Narsi tells me that this is probably the first EV conference in South India!
Taxis and cabs are becoming a major part of public transportation these days. As technology advances, taxi services are being smoother and cheaper. People prefer taxis for long as well as short trips. The emergence of online taxi services is a prime contributor to this change in preference. Taxis can be considered as a boon and a bane. On one hand it is a help for the people and on the other hand, it is the major partaker in environmental air pollution.
There are many words to describe the brand new Bollinger B1, brilliant, beautiful, basic, badass, and boss are just a few. The Bollinger B1 turned a lot of heads when it made its debut on July 27th in NYC. This new electric SUV will forever be known as the very first all-electric sport utility 4×4. Although Bollinger hasn’t revealed any manufacturing details the fully working prototype proves that this is the future off-roading and Robert Bollinger the founder guarantees that the B1 will go to manufacturing. The company is taking $1000 deposits through THEIR WEBSITE and delivery is expected to start in the first quarter of 2019.
