Well good morning, good afternoon and good evening, wherever you are in the world, hello and welcome to the Friday 14th September edition of EV News Daily. It’s Martyn Lee here with the news you need to know about electric cars and the move towards sustainable transport.

 

Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they’ve built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It’s a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too.

 

 

ELON TWEETS

“Due to a large increase in vehicle delivery volume in North America, Tesla customers may experience longer response times. Resolving this is our top priority.”

Good news on all fronts, that their hyper-detailed CEO is focussing on Customer Service, and also that must mean he’s not spending 20 hours a day fixing production issues.

 

AUDI WANT YOU TO NOTICE THEIR (CHARGING) SPEED

Fresh from excitement about the Mercedes EQC, which looks incredible, today I want to go big on the Audi e-tron Quattro, a car i’ve raved about for months and now it’s days away, being revealed in San Francisco on Monday 17th September. We know it’s called Quattro, so that’s a dead giveaway to motors on the front and rear axle, for 4 wheel drive. In a previous test we also heard it has a boost mode for up to 8 seconds of full-banzai attack driving. The battery is a 95kWh pack so, on a heavy SUV, any range number over 200 miles in the real world on a cold, wet day would be good. If you’re Audi and you’ve been building your showpiece EV, the e-tron Quattro, it must be a bit annoying to lose out to certain performance specs like the Tesla Model 3 doing 0-60mph in 3.5secs (and quicker if you change the tyres), especially as performance is a pillar of the Audi brand. All we know is the e-tron will get to 60mph in under 6 seconds. There’s a new teaser called “electric has gone thrilling”. But that hasn’t stopped them promoting the speed of their first EV, but specifically the speed it charges. They say its the first series-production car to charge at 150kW. We’ll see the car unveiled next week without the camouflage. In advance of that, Audi announced a scheme for Audi e-tron Quattro owners to access a charging network of 72,000 chargers across Europe, and that includes the network they’re part of which is IONITY. IONITY has big plans for their 350kW chargers with 400 promised by 2020, however the handful out there at the moment are few and far between. The same goes for Electrify America which has a large rollout to do, very quickly, to start installing them in respectable numbers. Audi’s solution also isn’t quite as frictionless as Tesla because you need a special card at launch but they do have plans the fix that. To start with, the access card will handle all the billing across multiple networks, in 16 countries. Audi told us today: “Drivers who charge their e-tron overnight and set off the next morning with a full battery don’t have to worry about stopping at a charging station during their normal daily drive. The range of more than 400 kilometers (248.5 mi) in the realistic WLTP cycle enables electric driving without compromise. For longer distances, Audi offers a smart solution in the shape of the e-tron Charging Service, which handles the charging process swiftly and simply. The e-tron Charging Service builds confidence in our electric initiative. Following on from the Audi e-tron, in 2019 the Audi e-tron Sportback will be the second electric car to go on sale, followed in 2020 by the Audi e-tron GT from Audi Sport.” “From 2019 onward, charging will be even more convenient for Audi customers. This is when the plug & charge function will be introduced. It enables the Audi e-tron to authenticate itself at charging stations via state-of-the-art cryptographic procedures, after which it is authorized – a card will no longer be necessary. All Audi e-tron models rolling off the assembly line from mid-2019 will support this function as standard. Customers can also use plug & charge privately to unlock their connect charging system. This then eliminates the need to enter a PIN to protect against unauthorized use.” “Audi offers various solutions for charging in the garage at home: The standard compact mobile charging system can be used with either a 230 volt household outlet or a 400 volt three-phase outlet. The optional connect charging system doubles the charging power to as much as 22 kW. The second on-board charger required for this will be available as an option at some point in 2019.” My take: for Audi buyers they expect nothing less. No Audi owner wants a wallet full of membership cards or fobs for different networks driving across Europe….
