Hyundai Kona-EV charging from Tesla AC destination charger



Watch an electric Hyundai Kona charging from a Tesla AC destination charger. Please note that not all Tesla destination chargers are compatible – it depends on whether they’ve been set to Legacy mode. There is no overt way to tell by looking at the charging box as it is an internal switch. At this stage, you just have to go by trial and error. Permission has been obtained from the owner to allow us to record this demonstration. Please also note that this does not apply to Tesla Superchargers as they are software locked to prevent non-Tesla vehicles from using them.

Breaking: Tesla has finally opened online Model 3 orders to more right hand drive markets including Australia! Thank you to those who have already used my referral link, I really appreciate it. I can’t stress this enough, you MUST use a referral link to unlock 1500km of free supercharging. If you go through with the order without initially clicking a referral link, you won’t be able to enter a referral code and you will forfeit your 1500km of free supercharging.

Thanks for watching! You can use my referral code to get 1,500 km / 1000 miles of free Supercharging on a new Tesla: http://ts.la/thomas7208

02 May 2019 | Hyundai Ioniq Electric Upgraded 38kWh Battery, Tesla Seeks Capital Range and…



Show #461

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Thursday 2nd May 2019. It’s Martyn Lee here and I’ve been through every EV story I could find today to save you time.

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.

HYUNDAI IONIQ ELECTRIC WITH UPGRADED 38.3-KWH BATTERY

“The new Hyundai IONIQ family is finally unveiled with updated hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric versions. Let’s see some highlights about the one that matters, the electric. I really like the new Hyundai IONIQ Electric and I think that more range with a lower charging rate at DC fast chargers is a good trade-off, especially considering that the on-board charger was upgraded. Higher range gives us more freedom to avoid expensive and overcrowded DC fast chargers and charge at home – where charging is more convenient and a lot cheaper.” says Pedro at PushEVs.

“The new IONIQ Electric’s battery has been upgraded from 28 kWh to 38.3 kWh, meaning drivers can go even further between charges. It boasts 36% additional energy storage capacity, offering a total of 294 kms of range (internal target under WLTP regulations). Its e-motor delivers a maximum power of 136 PS and 295 Nm of torque and is fitted standard with a 7.2-kW on-board charger – an upgrade from current 6.6-kW – for Type 2 AC charging. Using a 100-kW fast-charging station, the battery can reach 80% charge in as little as 54 minutes. As well as the new convenience features, the new IONIQ’s reimagined interior incorporates new design factors to enhance its sophisticated image. In addition to standard black seat trims, customers have the option of four leather seat colours: Black, Gray two-tone, Red Umber (exclusive for hybrid and plug-in) and Electric Shadow (exclusive to electric version). Meanwhile, the dashboard garnish arrives in Dark Chrome Accent.”

“The new IONIQ’s leading safety package includes Front Collision Warning and Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection with new Cyclist Detection ability and Driver Attention Warning. Lane Keeping Assist and High Beam Assist also come standard. Optionally available as well are Lane Following Assist which keeps the car in the middle of a lane so drivers can navigate safely even in heavy traffic during rush hour, and Intelligent Speed Limit Warning that uses the front camera and information from the navigation system to identify road speed signs and displays the speed limit and no-passing signs in real time. Using the radar sensor to detect the distance from the car in front, Smart Cruise Control with Stop&Go and Leading Vehicle Departure Alert maintains a preset distance to automatically stop and depart again according to traffic conditions. Additional options include Blind-Spot Collision Warning and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning. Taking a cue from its similarly innovative Kona Electric sibling, as a maximum use of regenerative braking technology, the new IONIQ Electric adopts 1-pedal driving capability, which allows drivers to stop the car by simply holding onto the left paddle shift lever with often no need to engage the braking pedal. Working thus via Smart Regenerative Braking, the level of energy recuperation is automatically adjusted depending on the road incline and traffic situation in front when coasting. The new IONIQ Electric also features Eco+, which supplements the standard Eco, Comfort and Sport driving modes. By selecting the Eco+ mode, drivers reduce their energy consumption and the car’s remaining energy can be extended during unforeseeable emergency situations.”

TESLA IS NOT ALLOWING RANGE UPGRADE ON NEW 150 KM MODEL 3 IN CANADA

“Tesla launched a new, cheaper Model 3 with 150km range in Canada to get access to the new $5,000 federal incentive, but we’re now learning that the company is not offering any range upgrade on that new version of the Model 3 — effectively making the vehicle unsellable.” says Fred at Electrek.

“To be eligible for incentives, a vehicle must have a base-model manufacturer’s suggested retail price of less than $45,000 for passenger vehicles with six or fewer seats, and less than $55,000 for vehicles with seven or more seats. For eligible vehicles with six or fewer seats, higher priced versions (trims) are eligible as long as the final manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $55,000 or less.”

“It disqualified Tesla’s vehicles from being eligible to the incentive because the base Model 3, which is only available as an “off-the-menu item”, starts at $47,000. In response earlier this week, Tesla has lowered the price of the vehicle to…

TOYOTA, PANASONIC TO SET UP EV BATTERY JV IN 2020

Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) and Panasonic Corp (6752.T) are set to launch a joint venture next year to produce batteries for electric vehicles (EV) in an effort to compete with Chinese rivals, a source familiar with the matter said.” according to a Reuters report: “The joint venture, to be owned 51 percent by Toyota and the rest by Panasonic, could also provide batteries to Toyota’s EV technology partners Mazda Corp (7261.T) and Subaru Corp (7270.T), the source said on Sunday. Under a planned joint venture, Panasonic would shift most of its prismatic battery-related equipment and facilities in Japan and China to the joint venture, while those producing batteries for U.S. EV maker Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) will remain under the company, the source said.”

RENAULT ENDS YEAR 2018 ON A HIGH

The end of the year for Renault was pretty significant as French manufacturer reports sales of 7,000 all-electric cars in December, which is not only 77% more than a year ago, but also an all-time record” says Mark Kane for InsideEVs.com: “Outstanding results are the fruit of record sales of both, the ZOE and Kangoo Z.E. Here are numbers for December and the full year (excluding Twizy): Renault ZOE – 5,611 (up 61%) and 40,508 YTD (up 27%), Renault Kangoo Z.E. – 1,363 (up 196%) and 9,004 YTD (up 107%), Renault Master Z.E. – 26 and 102 YTD (new).”

ELECTREK REVIEW JAGUAR I-PACE

Fred Lambert spent 4 days in the I-PACE and has a pretty long review on Electrek. His conclusion: “There’s a lot to like about the I-Pace. I think it’s one of the best-looking vehicle out there period. The range is going to be good enough for most people, especially if you plan to use it to get around a city, but I think it would be hard to take the vehicle on a road trip that requires more than two full charges at least until the non-Tesla charging infrastructure with over 100 kW of capacity becomes more extensive. It’s starting to be the case in Europe but less so in the US, and I think that will be reflected in the sales of the I-Pace – though the US could eventually catch up with a few new networks coming up. I think the I-Pace would make a great family vehicle as long as you are not expecting the space of a full-size SUV.”

EV Chargers, an informal discussion with James (“James and Kate”)



Informal discussion about chargers and charging needs for the future. Being significantly more experienced I was keen to pick Jame’s brain on a few things that have been on my mind.

Although, not staged for videoing and sharing the cameras were rolling and I thought many others might be interested in the discussion.

With thanks to James for his views and permission to share.

ChargePoint Express 250: Bolt EV 150 A DCFC Session



I was finally able to log a 150 A session on the ChargePoint Express 250 station at ChargePoint Headquarters. The session went mostly as expected; however, the first step down from 150 A didn’t occur until 54% battery. Also, because this charger is limited to 150 A (the Bolt EV’s maximum charging current), I still wasn’t able to confirm whether the Bolt EV can draw additional power for battery conditioning and climate control when more than 150 A is available from the charger.

Have An EV, You Need A Good Charging Infrastructure, Right?



Today we run two 30 kWh Leafs 300 miles to test out the charging infrastructure on Ecotricity’s Electric Highway, the Polar Network as far as possible and CYC in Scotland. Also some friendly competition between myself and Jonathan of Eco-Cars. It should be fun!!!!

Hyundai Kona EV home charging options



Test charging my Kona using both the Granny cable (ICCB) supplied with the car and my Zappi charger.
Rates, times and efficiency. Additional test including an extension lead in front of the ICCB.

For accuracy I charged the car to an even 10% boundary before starting, letting the car cut off using the charge limit feature. For each test I again used the charge limit to charger just 10% . This seemed to be the most accurate way to compare multiple charges methods.

Of note the plug of the extension cord was quite warm, not hot but definitely warmer than that of the Granny cable on its own.

18 September 2018 | 300,000 VW EVs On MEB Platform, Hyundai Joins In With EV Racing and Elon…



Can YOU help me spread the word about how awesome electric cars are? Click 👉 EVne.ws/patreon

 

Read today’s show notes on https://www.evnewsdaily.com

 

Well good morning, good afternoon and good evening, wherever you are in the world, hello and welcome to the Tuesday 18th 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.

 

World Premiere in Bremervörde: first hydrogen powered fuel cell passenger train in regular service. Congrats @Alstom

 

300,000 VOLKSWAGEN EVS ON MEB PLATFORM PER YEAR

Let me start with background. Here in the EU there are new stringent rules coming in for CO2 emissions across your whole fleet of cars and, for VW which sells a lot of cars, that means selling a LOT of EVs. That will dramatically lower your average fleet emissions. If they don’t do it, the fines are per car sold, in increments about how much they pollute. So today was a media day, where journalists got to look at the technical side of VW plans, with Volkswagen demonstrating the centerpiece of the MEB – the rolling chassis without the bodywork and interior. ELECTRIC FOR ALL campaign launched today, the brand will be putting attractive models at affordable prices on the road, paving the way for the breakthrough of electric vehicles. based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB), a technology platform developed specifically for electric vehicles. Production of the Volkswagen ID., the world’s first series vehicle based on the MEB, will begin in Zwickau at the end of 2019 Range will be from 330km WLTP, going up to 550km By ‘affordable’ they meant the price of equivalent diesel A change for VW, RWD will be standard, AWD optional Will be made in Zwickau, which is set for 1,500 cars / day for Europe by end of 2020, for anything they make on MEB Furthermore, the MEB bundles Volkswagen’s entire production knowledge: it is not a platform for vehicles with combustion engines that has been retroactively modified, but has from the outset been designed to be 100 percent, uncompromisingly electric. As Ulbrich put it: “Our Modular Transverse Toolkit already proved Volkswagen is one of the most successful platform developers in the auto industry. Now, we’re transferring this know-how and this strategy to the electric age. By the end of 2022, four Group brands will be ramping up 27 MEB models worldwide, ranging from compact cars to the lifestyle Bulli. That is something quite unique.”  

All members of the ID. family are designed for fast charging. Using fast charging systems, the battery can be charged 80 percent in about 30 minutes thanks to a completely new, significantly more powerful battery system developed by Volkswagen Group Components.  

IONITY is to have over 100 sites (each one up to 12 chargers) by the end of the year. Up to 350kW So in summary, by the time these go into production this time next year, it will be 4 years since dieselgate. And whilst the legal and financial consequences of that will go on for many more years, out of it will come a 30,000Euro mainstream car, being produced at a rate of 300,000 per year. Talking of thing time next year, Tesla Model 3 RHD models are said to go into production Summer 2019. The timing will be fascinating to watch.

HYUNDAI JOINS IN WITH EV RACING

I was recently talking about racing series I’m looking forward to – the I-PACE eTrophy, the new Formula E, Rallycross in 2020, but I missed one out. Thank you to George Hartley in San Francisco who is one of our Patreon Supporters, who emailed me at hello@evnewsdaily.com with this one. Hyundai are getting into the scene now by prepping the IONIQ Electric for racing, to compete in the Optima Ultimate Street Car series later this year. The outward signs are the flared wheel arches and Volk TE37SL wheels with 275mm width semi-slick rubber on. However if we take a look under the skin it gets interesting. Hyundai’s engineers decided the stock motor wasn’t up to the job, so they’ve nabbed one from a KONA. That ups the power from 118bhp to 201bhp – so it’s a light weight package with lots of torques to call on. As well as doing some funky racing things with the limited-slip diff, the brakes and the springs, the next challenge with EV racing is how to manage temperatures. Hyundai thought of that too, they’ve upgraded the radiator and the pumps for a…

Kona EV 180 miles trip, 143 miles left . 323 mile potential range



First decent road trip in wet and cold conditions on the way out and better in the way back.

Game changer? What other EV can do this, this easily without spending Tesla money.

Chargers, who needs chargers enroute?

With 4.9kWh in colder wet conditions and 5.3kWh in 17 degree dry weather the Kona certainly proved itself..

Seeing the incredulous look on an Ioniq owners face sums up this cars ability. A 180 mile trip and still having , in an Ioniq’s perspective, a full battery left!!!
