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!!!!

23 August 2018 | Huge Queues In Australia For Model 3, Ford In No Rush To EVs and IONIQ…



Can YOU help me spread the word about how awesome electric cars are? Click 👉 https://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 Thursday 23rd August 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.

 

NEWS IN BRIEF!

Kicking off with some news in brief, and some quick bite-size headlines: The government of India is planning to subsidize EV charging infrastructure to speed up the EV revolution there, describing the situation with the well-worn chicken and egg metaphor, what comes first, the cars or the chargers. OPEL/Vauxhall has followed up their teaser with images of the GT X Experimental Concept – a compact SUV concept with coupe appeal, EV powertrain, with inductive charging and a 50kWh battery. Except it doesn’t because they haven’t even built a concept, it’s a picture. So they can give it whatever specs they want. And the average Sale Price Of Tesla Model 3 Now At $59,000, although that’s not an official line from Tesla, it crowdsources 4,600 Model 3 owners and what they paid, with that price going up due to AWD and Performance options more recently available.  

TESLA MODEL 3 DEBUTS IN AUSTRALIA BUT NOT ON SALE UNTIL LATE 2019

Tesla has flown in 3 production versions of the Model 3 to let Australian fans have a look around. And boy did they ever! Some people queued for hours to get just a few minutes with the car at showrooms in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Australian customers, like all those who paid their deposit over two years ago still have a year to wait before driving their cars. The best guesstimate for local deliveries is production starting in the next 12 months with deliveries to commence in the next 12 to 18 months. Here in the UK we don’t expect RHD model to appear before July 2019. I gather the model on display is the cheapest, long range RWD model, which is $66,610 in local currency before taxes and import duties are applied. Add those and you’re looking at $80,000 drive-away Aussie dollars The queues don’t surprise me because there’s a pent up demand to see it in the flesh. When I went to the Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier this year it’s such aa different experience to studying photos.  

HYUNDAI KONA EV HAS THE LONGEST EPA RANGE OF ANY NON-TESLA EV

Recently on the show you and I went through the newly official EPA rating of the Hyundai KONA EV, or at least the long range 64kWh battery version, which is the only one being sold in North America. And I even mentioned it was more than the Chevrolet Bolt but I didn’t connect enough dots to make this statement. The KONA EV is the longest range of any electric vehicle currently on sale that isn’t built by Tesla. So the KONA pack stores 4kWH more energy than the Bolt, and as we’ve seen with the IONIQ Hyundai are getting a reputation for building efficient EVs. In terms of charging the KONA i want to say again, Hyundai have this really confusing way of describing it online and on press releases, they give the charge time of 54minutes when connected to a 100kW charger. However please remember, with the current of 200amps on the battery pack, and even 200amps being the max current on the current CCS plug, the theoretical max charge speed is ~72kW. I’ve been guilty in the past of saying it’s capable of 100kW charging but that’s an urban myth for some reason. That’s still a great speed by the way, 54mins to 80% at that speed, 75 mins on a 50kW charger and 9.5hours on the 7.2kW onboard.  

HYUNDAI IONIQ EV N PERFORMANCE COULD BE COMING

“Hyundai are planning to deliver electric N Performance models after the current crop of N cars, with the Hyundai Ioniq EV N looking to be in the frame.” says carsuk.net: “Hyundai’s N boss Albert Biermann, speaking to Automotive News, says the N Brand won’t be able to avoid electrification past 2021, and he seems to have a clear idea of what could be done. He said: “As an example, we have an Ioniq EV. Were we to find a nice battery, a bigger motor and inverter, we could make an Ioniq EV N with a nice chassis and more power. Something like that is not fully crazy.”

80:20 charging myth or reality. What do Hyundai recommend for the Kona?



Charging regime. When are you going to charge?

So, how crazy is this? When you buy a car normally do you have to consider how or when you’re going to fill up? No. But with an EV we’re not quite comfortable the that batteries are bullet proof so we want to take care of the battery and not have it degrade on us.

Is it daft or is it sensible?

Charging cycles. Do we need to limit them, whatever they are? Shall we charge, daily, weekly and from and to what charge percents?

I’m sure some owners will just wing it and not care and maybe that’s the right attitude but it’s a lot of money to be wrong so I’m going the cautious route and trying to find out how to care best for my EV battery

How have you charged your EV? Has it degraded at all?

As we’re approaching the time for the first Kona reviews of UK owned cars, mine included, I’m starting to plan tests and review videos. Any thoughts or requests?

Lastly, I’m still considering changing the name of the channel to KONA Electric or Kona Electric ( EV Puzzle). Should I change it to reflect the Kona or should I keep it as is?
