EVs meet oil demand, upcycled electric garbage truck, Mach-E recall:

EV adoption has helped avoid 3% of global oil demand. Buyers may not trust Tesla as much as traditional automakers, but EVs lack the alternative. We look at a recyclable truck — of course electric. And the withdrawal of Mach-E is another proof of the effectiveness of the over-the-air update. This and more, here and here Green Car Report.

Ford is recalling a small number of Mach-E electric SUVs due to a software issue related to some of its security systems. But when Ford mails the customary recall notice, many owner-owned cars will already have a recall remedy, in the air.

The adoption of electric vehicles in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere is helping to ease the pinch caused by sanctions by blocking Russian oil exports in the wake of Ukraine’s invasion. EVs have helped avoid 3% of global oil demand, including electric two- and three-wheeled vehicles and plug-in hybrid parts.

UK firm Lunaz, known for its stellar electric recovery of the classic Jaguar, Bentley and Rolls-Royce models, has revealed that it is the world’s most advanced upcycle electric vehicle – and an electric trash truck. It claims an 80% reduction in embedded carbon due to the production phase, while the efficiency should be comparable to a new electric truck.

And according to a survey by a leading consulting firm, general-market buyers are more likely to trust established automakers than newer EV startups like Tesla or Revian. That said, the current crop of EV products is lower than expected.
