first_imgGo back to the e-newsletter >The Kenyan Government has announced Australian travellers will be able to obtain a visa on arrival while the new e-visa process is in its early stages of implementation. During this time both systems will operate simultaneously providing Aussies with two options to secure a Kenyan visa.President Uhuru Kenyatta said though the e-visa was already running, manual application at the entry points to the country will continue concurrently so as not to discourage last-minute visitors to the country.“We have had a number of challenges on the implementation of the e-visa and I have therefore ordered that application of visa on arrival to the country continues as it were,” President Kenyatta said.The resumption of manual visa application, which ceased from 1 September 2015, is set to ease concerns from travel agents and tour operators who were anxious around the possibility of a drop in visitation as a result of challenges associated with new system.KTB Australia will keep you informed of any updates on these processes and the date of when visas will no longer be able to be obtained on arrival.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img read more

MercedesBenz EQC SUV Seen Charging At Tesla Destination Charger

first_img Daimler In Talks With Tesla For Electric Van What Does Daimler Trucks CEO Really Think About Tesla Semi? Mercedes-Benz Relentlessly Tests EQC In Sweden As Mercedes is out winter testing its upcoming all-electric EQC SUV, it’s shown charging at a Tesla Destination Charger?This may not seem like an issue if you understand how Tesla tends to set up its Destination Chargers. As Teslarati explains, the charging points in Europe offer a red and white unit. While the red is for Tesla vehicles, the white is available to all.Confusion from initial reports states that the Mercedes-Benz EQC was charging at a Tesla-exclusive (red) charging point in Sweden, but Tesla has confirmed that’s not the case. In fact, an automaker rep explained that the EQC was charging at one of two universal charging points incorrectly labeled as Tesla-only units.Related Content: Source: Electric Vehicle News This calls into question the usual debate that these upcoming legacy automakers’ all-electric vehicles may struggle without a charging network. However, this is not so much of an issue in Europe, due to its high level of EV adoption and numerous public charging options. Similarly, in the U.S., charging infrastructure is beginning to expand nicely.By the time many of these upcoming offerings arrive on our shores and are in the hands of numerous drivers, continuing infrastructure growth may curtail any major concerns. And, let’s not forget, if you charge at home and don’t take lots of road trips, lack of public charging may not even matter.It’s important to note that Daimler had a working relationship with Tesla in the past. The two companies could easily join hands again in the future, and both have alluded to the possibility. However, we deal with a number of announcements about potential partnerships that never come to be. We’re still waiting on news about GM’s reported investment considerations surrounding Rivian.At any rate, check out the video above and share your thoughts with us in the comment section below.Video Description via car engine and sport on YouTube:Mercedes EQC (2019): Winter test in Sweden – Bloch explains # 56 | car motor & sportGo hard or go home!
