BMW Spends On Coulomb Technologies. BMW is investing in Coulomb Technologies for an undisclosed amount. The Campbell, California electric-vehicle charging stations and software management company has now another carmaker to work with. To muddy the water a bit, Coulomb Technologies already has agreements with other car manufacturers and companies, namely General Motors, Ford, Nissan and luxury hybrid vehicle manufacturer Fisker Automotive.
Coulomb Technologies’ Backing. Coulomb Technologies is also solidifying its leading role as a charge management company. The new backing from BMW comes after its $47.5-million raised in May in a new round of funds via Braemar Energy Ventures and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Coulomb Technologies also received the financial blessings of Toyota TsushO , a member of the Toyota Group.
How Do You Sell An i8? Over your own website, of course. BMW is taking the highly controversial tactic of selling cars over the web in order to provide an inexpensive way for more buyers to flock to the Bavarian choice. Not only does BMW hope recoup what it spent on its electric car, EV models, the i8 and i3, but it will seek to make its cars available to wider base. But the problem with selling online is still the same, how do you try them? This becomes even more important when buying something as expensive as a car.
