DIESEL IN EUROPE

A quick stat on the rise and fall, and fall and fall of Diesel from Matthias Schmidt @auto_schmidt: “European #diesel mix of new passenger car sales fell below one third in September… Sep YTD: 9% Last 4 qtrs: Q3 ’18: 35.2% Q2 ’18: 36.7% Q1 ’18: 38.5% Q4 ’17: 41.6% Last time annual diesel mix fell below 1/3 was the year 2000 (32.3%)”  

30 FAST CHARGERS NOW ONLINE FOR ELECTRIFY AMERICA

A new update today about Electrify America progress ahead of the on onslaught of EVs which should be coming 2019, at least early 2020. They have 30 fast charging stations now online and a huge task ahead of them to spend the $2bn settlement with the EPA and California Air Resources Board over dieselgate. Of those 30 stations, most have 7 CCS chargers plus a 1 CHAdeMo point. This weeks question of the week is where would you put a charger – if you were thinking Walmart, they’ve beaten you to it. Over 100 off the Electrify America chargers will be at a Walmart store. But that’s still a drop in the ocean with more than 2,000 Ultra Fast chargers in place by June 2019. “Electrify America DC fast charging stations display clear, up-front pricing. Electrify America charging will include the following elements: $1.00 session fee + per minute charging cost + idle fee of $0.40/minute (if applicable). Our introductory charging cost pricing is $0.30 to $0.35 per minute of charging”

MOST OF THE EU’S EV CHARGERS ARE IN JUST FOUR COUNTRIES

“While battery-powered vehicles may be cheaper to run and maintain compared to their petrol- and diesel-powered cousins, the European Union isn’t yet the perfect place to charge them and keep them going because more than three quarters (76 percent) of the EU’s charging points are concentrated across just four countries – the Netherlands, Germany, France and the UK. What’s more, those countries only make up 27 percent of the Union’s total area” reports Motor1.com: “The country with the most dense concentration of electric vehicle charging points in the EU is currently the Netherlands, where 28 percent of charging points cover one percent of the total area of the EU. The Netherlands also has solid fast charging networks like Fastned. There is currently around 100,000 charging points the in the European Union according to the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA), and that number should multiply at least 20 times by 2025 giving the EU 20 million charging points to handle the anticipated rise in sales of plug-in cars. To meet that target, 1.9 million charging points need to be produced and sold within 7 years.”

CHINA SPEEDS UP EV INFRASTRUCTURE CONSTRUCTION

“The Chinese government has come up with a plan to accelerate infrastructure construction for electric vehicles (EVs). Chinese premier Li Keqiang at a state council meeting last week released a guidance plan for the EV industry, aimed at building sufficient charging poles to meet demand from at least 5mn EVs by 2020.” according to Argus Media: “The plan requires all parking spots at new residential buildings to have charging poles and at least 10pc of spots at public parking facilities to have charging poles. This is to ensure one charging pole in a public area for every 2,000 EVs. China is the world’s largest EV producer and consumer. It produced 795,000 EVs last year and is on target to produce 1mn EVs in 2018. Beijing is aiming to double production of EVs to 2mn by 2020 to save energy and curb pollution. China produced only 8,200 EVs in 2011. China as of August has installed at least 662,000 charging poles across the country — 275,000 public poles and 387,000 private poles. The central government’s guidance plan comes after many Chinese provinces introduced regional plans to boost the use of EVs.”

ORNL DEMONSTRATES 120-KILOWATT WIRELESS CHARGING FOR VEHICLES

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have demonstrated a 120-kilowatt wireless charging system for vehicles–providing six times the power of previous ORNL technology and a big step toward charging times that rival the speed and convenience of a gas station fill-up. The wireless system transfers 120 kilowatts of power with 97 percent efficiency, which is comparable to conventional, wired high-power fast chargers. In the laboratory demonstration, power was transferred across a six-inch air gap between two magnetic coils and charged a battery pack. ORNL researchers created and demonstrated the world’s first 20-kilowatt wireless charging system, which is being modified for applications such as commercial delivery trucks. To achieve 120 kilowatts, the ORNL team created a new coil design co-optimized with the latest silicon carbide power electronic devices for a lightweight, compact system. The system’s architecture takes energy from the grid and converts it to high-frequency alternating current, which generates a magnetic field that transfers power across a large air gap. Once the energy is transferred to the secondary coil, it is converted back to direct current and stored in a vehicle’s batteries.

NEW KIA SOUL AND SOUL EV TO BE REVEALED IN LOS ANGELES NEXT MONTH

“We’ve seen spy photos of the next-generation Kia Soul a couple of times in the last few months and it’s only natural that a debut is imminent.” reports Anthony Karr from Motor1.com: “Our friends from The Korean Cars Blog report the standard ICE-powered and fully-electric versions of the car will make their official premieres at the Los Angeles Auto Show in the second half of November this year. Nothing is confirmed at the moment, but it is believed sales in the United States will kick off in the second quarter of 2019. As far as the Soul EV is concerned, it will use the powertrain of the Niro EV, which means two battery packs will be on sale – with 34 kWh or 60 kWh. The larger of the two should provide a range of approximately 300 miles (485 kilometers) between two charges.”

VOLKSWAGEN GROUP CHINA BUILDING FIRST FACTORY SPECIFICALLY FOR MEB PRODUCTION

“Volkswagen Group China is beginning construction in Anting of the Group’s first factory specifically designed for the Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB) platform. The first model that will be produced in the factory of SAIC Volkswagen will be an electric Volkswagen brand SUV in 2020.” according to Green Car Congress: “Together with the FAW-Volkswagen factory in Foshan, which opened this summer, SAIC Volkswagen’s plant will begin to produce e-cars on the MEB platform directly after the first worldwide MEB-production starts in Zwickau, Germany.” Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Group, said: “Through Volkswagen’s MEB platform, we will be able to easily produce state-of-the-art electric vehicles for our Chinese customers on a high scale. The Volkswagen Group, its brands and their Chinese joint venture partners focus consistently on sustainable mobility and push the transformation of the automotive industry in China and worldwide. In this way, we emphasize the importance of the Chinese market for the Volkswagen Group.” “The facility is scheduled to be put into production by 2020 with a planned annual capacity of 300,000 vehicles. It will produce various new pure electric vehicles of SAIC VOLKSWAGEN, including medium- and large-sized pure electric SUVs, as well as battery systems. The factory will be supporting the Volkswagen Group’s e-mobility strategy in China. The vehicles being produced in Anting are based on the MEB, which is Volkswagen’s first pure electric automotive modular platform developed for mass production. ”

PORSCHE ENTERS ‘THE ELECTRIC ERA’ WITH THEIR NEW TAYCAN

“The Porsche Taycan is still roughly a year away from hitting showrooms, but Porsche has further tipped its hand toward what its electric vehicle future is going to look like” according to CNET: “The Taycan production car, which was previewed by a pair of Mission E concepts, is expected to bring more than 600 horsepower, a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds and boast a driving range of about 300 miles to the party.” “The Taycan is one of biggest creators of jobs in the history of Porsche” those are the words of Andreas Haffner, Member of the Executive Board responsible for HR and Social Affairs, Porsche. That’s because there’s a 6 billion euro investment in the electrification plan hiring 1,200 new employees. Some of the highlighted quotes from Porsche today: “By applying flexi-line production, Porsche will become the first vehicle manufacturer to use driverless transport systems in a continuous series production process. In addition to efficient processes, the revenue from digital products and services should also increasingly contribute to our economic success. We expect by 2025, roughly 50 percent of our products to be electrified, either with a fully electric engine or with a plug-in hybrid.” Meanwhile Automotive News Europe reports: ” its U.S. dealers will be required to shoulder a significant share. Porsche bumped up the number of high-speed chargers it would need to more than 700, or about 40 percent more than previously estimated. U.S. dealers will be on the hook for at least 200 of those. It’s a pricey ask of the 190-store brand. The chargers will cost retailers between $300,000 and $400,000 per store on average, Porsche estimated. The numbers of chargers dealers must install will be based on sales. Dealers are expected to install at least two fast chargers at each location along with a buffer battery that stores electricity from the grid and is less expensive than charging vehicles directly from the grid. The 350-kilowatt chargers can fill a vehicle battery to 80 percent — or about 250 miles (400 km) — in 15 to 20 minutes. Porsche is also in discussions with third-party networks, including Electrify America, ChargePoint and EVgo, to augment the network with additional nondealership chargers. That effort calls for at least 500 chargers along U.S. highways.” Todd Blue, CEO of IndiGO Auto Group: “We should walk slowly and allow healthy demand to dictate the future, not the government.”

TESLA POSTS PICTURES OF A MILLION MILE DRIVETRAIN

“Tesla says that the Model 3 drive system is designed and validated for over one million miles of range.” says Fred Lambert for Electrek: “Today, the automaker released impressive pictures of Model 3 drive units after testing, which Elon Musk says “drove 1M miles. The electric truck is using Model 3 drive units and it’s putting them to the test through long distance driving and pulling of heavy loads.”  

THE ULTIMATE TESLA OWNERSHIP SUPPORT

“6 Tesla owners club leaders from nine countries convened this week in Fremont, CA to meet, strategize, and plan for how clubs can continue to support Tesla owners across the globe.” in an article by Sean Mitchell for InsideEVs: “Tesla Club Owners are officially recognized by Tesla and have ongoing communication with Tesla representatives with the intent of enhancing the owner experience. Collectively, there are 60 officially recognized clubs in 17 countries and more than 28,000 members. ”  

SWEDEN’S NORTHVOLT TEAMS UP WITH BMW, UMICORE FOR ELECTRIC CAR BATTERIES

“Northvolt, which is building Europe’s largest battery factory in Sweden, has joined forces with German luxury carmaker BMW and Belgium’s Umicore to develop a process for electric car batteries to be recycled.” according to a Reuters article today: “BMW had a funding investment of undisclosed size in the venture, the Swedish startup, which plans to build a factory in Sweden to produce 32 gigawatt hours (GWh) of battery capacity a year by 2023, said in a statement on Monday.”

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Sunday 14th October 2018. It’s Martyn Lee here and I’ve been through EV story today so you don’t have to.

 

Thank you to those Patrons who pushed us over 100 supporters – we’ve hit the ton. Everyone, may I introduce to the latest superheroes who bring you this podcast. Producer Carlos Walker, Producer Justin Pavlick, Producer Karthikeyan and Executive Producer Paul!

 

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.

 

If you follow Ryan McCaffrey on his Ride The Lightning, check out his Twitter because he’s made a video of the new Atari games on Tesla’s.

 

If you want to buy a new Tesla, do it today if you want to get the full U.S. Federal Tax Credit! We have known for a while that Tesla reached the 200,000 vehicle threshold we now know if you wanted the full tax credit order it today or tomorrow. That means you’ll definitely get the vehicle delivered by December 31st and that guarantees eligibility on behalf of the car maker, of course a lot depends on your personal finances. Just a reminder, the taper off goes from Jan to Jun for $3,750 and then Jul to Dec for $1,875. Then it’s all over.

 

ONE MILLION EV DRIVERS…CAN’T BE WRONG!

We’ll start with a Tweet from Barry Woods, Director EV Innovation at ReVision Energy: “1,000,000 drivers can’t be wrong. On Weds Oct 10th at 11:01am somewhere in the US someone bought the millionth car with a plug since they came to market in 2011!  #pluginamerica. It took a bit longer than #Obama projected but we’re there, and the speed increases!!”  

100,000 MODEL 3 DRIVERS…CAN’T BE WRONG!

And a tenth of those drivers are currently enjoying some electric smiles in their new Tesla Model 3. Because Tesla just reached the milestone of 100k Model 3s. It has been just over a year since production started and a few Model 3s took their first tentative metres off a new General Assembly production line. It’s all thanks to a strong start to Quarter 4 with an average of over 1,000 vehicles a day being built. Fred at Electrek pointed out the finer details to this story: “In overall production when accounting for the release candidates and engineering vehicles, Tesla actually achieved the milestone earlier this week, but according to a source familiar with Tesla’s production, regular production reached the milestone today. It’s an important milestone for Tesla, which is transitioning from a relatively niche automaker to a mass-market auto manufacturer with the Model 3. Tesla is already producing electric vehicles at a higher rate than any legacy automaker with no signs of change evident in the space. Perhaps legacy automakers should look at that 100,000th Model 3 milestone and look at their own efforts and revaluate what kind of volume they are planning for their own programs.” says Fred.  

AUSTRALIA: 50TH PUBLIC DC FAST CHARGER GOES ONLINE

“Australia reached the milestone of 50 public DC fast chargers (50 kW) installed (Tesla Superchargers aside).” reports Mark Kane for InsideEVs: “It’s still a long way til the infrastructure could be considered satisfying, but at least more manufacturers will be willing to introduce some EVs in the country. Around 70% of DC chargers in Australia were supplied by Tritium, founded in Brisbane. Recently, Tritium received an order for at least 40 Veefil RT-50kW DC fast chargers in New South Wales in Australia.”

THE TESLA EFFECT ON DISRUPTING OIL

We’ll start with a clip of Paul Snakey on CNBC…  

According to a report today from teh International Energy Agency and reported by Bloomberg: “The global fleet of electric vehicles is likely to more than triple to 13 million by the end of the decade from 3.7 million last year, according to a report released Wednesday from the Paris-based institution, which was set up to advise industrial nations on energy policy. Sales may soar 24 percent each year on average through to 2030.”  

from BNEF.  

Here are some of the key findings of the IEA’s report:  

China will remain the biggest market EVs will displace lots of oil from the market Governments will have to find new sources of tax revenue At least 10 more giant battery gigafactories will be needed Buses are going electric too Cobalt and lithium demand is surging  

 

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-05-30/electric-vehicles-on-the-road-are-set-to-triple-in-two-years

 

And finally from Reuters: “Nearly 40 percent of daily crude oil production was lost from offshore U.S. Gulf of Mexico wells on Tuesday due to platform evacuations and shut-ins ahead of Hurricane Michael. In addition to shutting in wells, oil producers also halted most offshore drilling operations by evacuating three drilling rigs and moving eight others out of the storm area.”  

UK’S FIRST 60KW RAPID CHARGE POINT

“For the first time ever, all UK EV drivers can enjoy the fastest rapid public charging options, powered by renewable energy, with the installation of Alfa Power’s new 60kW agnostic charger at Crown Service Station, Brighouse.” Customers can be confident that the new charging point has specifications which more than fulfil the needs of their latest EV vehicle; it is capable not only of 60kW charging but also of simultaneously charging up to four vehicles via several connectors, namely CCS (European Combined Charging System), Type 2 (European AC charger) and CHAdeMO (quick charging method). What is more, Alfa Power aim to continually upgrade their charging points to ensure that the needs of the UK’s growing EV market are fully met, with next steps set to include the installation of 100kW chargers at sites between major cities across the UK and beyond.”  

ELECTRIC KIA NIRO FLAUNTS 385KM DRIVING DISTANCE

The Korea Herald has driven the Kia e-Niro: “Defying the popular notion that EVs are unstable at high speeds, the Niro glided quietly on the highway at about 120 kilometers per hour, showing outstanding stability. For most drivers accustomed to fueling up their cars in a few minutes, the time required to charge an EV might come across as a downside. The tradeoff, however, was exceptional cost-effectiveness: It cost only 4,895 won ($4.30) to charge 28.3 kilowatt-hours, which converts to a driving distance of 170 kilometers. A full charge would have cost about 9,000 won, roughly one-tenth the cost of filling the gas tank in an average fuel-powered small to midsize sedan. The number of EV chargers was tallied at 5,886 nationwide as of June, more than eight times the number that existed in August 2016, which stood at 711, according to the Environment Ministry.”

THREE NEW CITY CARS FROM VW GROUP

“Volkswagen Group – starting next year -, will bring its own electric triplets and this time with enough range and a more reasonable price tag. They’ll be the Volkswagen e-Up 2.0, the Skoda e-Citigo and the Seat e-Mii.” reports Auto Bild Germany: “The battery pack configuration should remain the same as the current Volkswagen e-up with a total of 204 PHEV2 battery cells (102s2p), but instead of using Sanyo/Panasonic battery cells with 25 Ah it’ll most likely be upgraded to 50 Ah cells from Samsung SDI. Samsung SDI is already producing battery cells at its plant in Hungary. With 50 Ah cells the battery pack will have a /total capacity of 37,7 kWh (204 x 50 Ah x 3,7 V), not much different from the 36 kWh announced by Auto Bild.” So that would be 270km range on WLTP. …

TESLA MODEL 3 IS THE SAFEST CAR EVER TESTED

In the U.S. NHTSA has released it’s findings in the probability of injury for those involved in a Model 3 acccident and it’s the lowest score they’ve ever awarded. Apart from driving around in a tank, you’re safest in a Model 3. Tesla explained: “NHTSA tested Model 3 Long Range Rear-Wheel Drive as part of its New Car Assessment Program, a series of crash tests used to calculate the likelihood of serious bodily injury for front, side and rollover crashes. The agency’s data shows that vehicle occupants are less likely to get seriously hurt in these types of crashes when in a Model 3 than in any other car. NHTSA’s previous tests of Model S and Model X still hold the record for the second and third lowest probabilities of injury, making Tesla vehicles the best ever rated by NHTSA. We expect similar results for other Model 3 variants, including our dual-motor vehicles, when they are rated.” “In addition to its near 50/50 weight distribution, Model 3 was also designed with an extremely low polar moment of inertia, which means that its heaviest components are located closer to the car’s center of gravity. Even though Model 3 has no engine, its performance is similar to what’s described as a “mid-engine car” due to its centered battery pack (the heaviest component of the car) and the fact that Model 3’s rear motor is placed slightly in front of the rear axle rather than behind it. Not only does this architecture add to the overall agility and handling of the car, it also improves the capability of stability control by minimizing rotational kinetic energy.”  

BIG OIL SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT AMAZON’S BATTERY PLAY

Liam Denning has been taking a look at the announcement from Audi that Amazon will install charge points at home for it’s customers: “The oil industry has long been more concerned with generating supply than encouraging demand—why bother, when drivers had no alternative? The hassle of charging has long been one of the things holding back the electrical vehicle market. Amazon’s entry will make that a whole lot easier, potentially representing a major threat in oil’s biggest market.” according to Bloomberg: “The fossil fuel industry should be worried about a company such as Amazon encroaching on its territory. Back in the summer of 2008, three of the world’s five most valuable companies produced oil and gas. Exxon was No. 1. Today, four years after a global collapse in oil prices, Big Tech dominates and Exxon struggles to stay in the top 10.”

WANT ELECTRIC VEHICLES TO SCALE? ADD CHARGERS TO GAS STATIONS

No! No! No! A new article by Fast Company is typical of so many I see and it totally misses the point that EV’s are a change of habit, a change of how we *think* about fuelling personal mobility. They say: “In the not-too-distant future, your local gas station may have chargers for electric cars near the gas pumps.

On Toyota RAV4EV owners was fed up with the range and took it into his own hands: “This enthusiastic owner wanted to increase the range of his Toyota, and built this simple trailer solution to double his battery capacity, nearly doubling his range, despite the trailer’s extra 454kg.” according to Gizmodo: “The trailer retains the original Toyota floor pan casing, making it likely as safe as it would have been bolted into the Rav4 body. I’m not convinced that high-voltage cables should be hanging out in the wind as seen in the connection between the trailer and the car, but everything in life is a calculated risk, right? What’s the worst that could happen?”

Electric Mercedes EQC SUV Battery Charging Explained



The EQC is equipped with the latest generation of a lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery serving as the energy source for both electric motors. The battery consists of 384 cells and is located in the vehicle floor, between the two axles. The battery system is modular in design, consisting of two modules with 48 cells each and four with 72 cells each. The powerful high-voltage battery has a maximum voltage of 408 V and a nominal capacity of 210 Ah, for an energy content of 80 kWh (according to NEDC).

The integral overall cooling concept of the EQC, consisting of a heat pump function and two electric PTC heater boosters, not only includes the power electronics, the electric motor and the rotor, but also the battery. The entire battery system is liquid-cooled. At low temperatures a battery heater ensures outstanding performance and efficiency (see Climate control section).

The battery is an integral part of the crash concept for the vehicle as a whole. Its low, central location also has a positive effect on the handling characteristics of the EQC (see Safety section).

The battery is produced in Germany, by the wholly-owned Daimler subsidiary Deutsche Accumotive in Kamenz/Saxony (see Production section).

As for all other high-voltage batteries, Mercedes-Benz issues a battery certificate as a commitment to the battery performance.

Whether at home via a wallbox, while shopping, at work or ultra-fast on the motorway: there are various ways to supply electric vehicles with power. Intelligently networked charging solutions focussed on the mobility needs and convenience of customers are an integral part of the new product and technology brand EQ.

As standard the EQC is equipped with a water-cooled onboard charger (OBC) with a capacity of 7.4 kW, making it suitable for AC charging at home or at public charging stations. The charging time required for a full charge depends on the available infrastructure and the country-specific vehicle equipment. Charging at a Mercedes-Benz Wallbox is much faster than at a domestic power socket (see section “The intelligent services for the EQC).

It is faster still with DC charging – which is standard for the EQC – for example via CCS (Combined Charging Systems) in Europe and the USA, CHAdeMO in Japan or GB/T in China. This usually public quick-charging system expands the existing technical standard for AC charging of electric vehicles with the capacity for DC fast charging. Depending on the SoC (status of charge), the EQC can be charged with a maximum output of up to 110 kW at an appropriate charging station. In around 40 minutes, the battery can be charged from 10 – 80 percent SoC (provisional data).
