Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Tuesday 11th December 2018. It’s Martyn Lee here and I’ve been through EV story today so you don’t have to.

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.

Hello to the newest member of our little gang and that’s SARAH McCANN joining as Executive Producer on Patreon.

EV CHAMPION CARLOS GHOSN AND NISSAN INDICTED IN JAPAN

“Carlos Ghosn and Nissan, the Japanese automaker he saved from collapse, were indicted Monday on allegations of financial misconduct, deepening a crisis that already brought down one of the global car industry’s most iconic figures.” says CNN Business: “Tokyo prosecutors said they indicted Ghosn, 64, and Nissan for under-reporting his income over a five-year period and are investigating allegations that the practice went on for even longer. Prosecutors said Monday that they are also arresting Ghosn and Kelly again as they investigate additional allegations that the two men under-reported Ghosn’s income by more than 4.2 billion yen ($38 million) between 2015 and 2017.”

TESLA MODEL 3 EUROPEAN REFERRAL CODES

People have worked out how European Model 3 reservation holders can get 6 months free supercharging by using a referral code. If you try to type one in you get the page for the Model S or X so here how it’s done, via ClearnTechnica…”Send an email to buildmy3EMEA@tesla.com with the word “Referral” in the subject line. In the body of your email, include your name and contact information, the reservation number (starts with RN), and the referral code you’d like to use. This is the method to use if you have already configured your Model 3, which is a workaround for Europeans until Tesla changes the website options. Note that it may take a few days for Tesla to update your order.”

In the meantime, Tesla are working hard to add CCS cables to their European Superchargers. Earlier in 2018 I reported on their engineers doing the preparatory work, as reported on Reddit, so i hope now the news is public there’s an aggressive push to simply add the cables if all the wiring is ready. Tesla has said they’ll prioritise the busiest stations.

MOTORWAY CHARGEPOINTS SHOULD BE SAVED FOR PURE EVS

“Plug-in hybrids should be stopped from using rapid chargepoints on motorways until they can accept electricity at a faster rate to stop blocking pure EVs.” reports Natalie Middelton for FLeetworld in a story today which got a lot of coverage in the press: “The Development of the UK Public Chargepoint Network report says widespread confusion over how fast electric vehicles can be ‘refuelled’ could be undermining efforts to provide an adequate public chargepoint network. To summarise, RAC Foundation director Steve Gooding, a chargepoint will only ever be as ‘rapid’ as the car that it plugs into; pure EVs only need around five minutes of charging at the quickest rapid chargepoints to get 15 miles of range while plug-in hybrids will need around an hour to achieve the same thing. To ensure drivers of pure EVs are not “blocked” from using essential chargepoints, report author Harold Dermott, who has spent more than 35 years in the motor manufacturing industry, says drivers of plug-in hybrids should not be allowed to use them, until PHEVs have both a greater electric-only range and can accept electricity at a faster rate.”

Motorway chargepoints should be saved for pure EVs, report finds

FORMULA E IS A MUST WATCH SAYS BBC

“The new Formula E season gets under way in Saudi Arabia on 15 December, and you can watch all 13 races live on the BBC. The all-electric series will take place in some of the most iconic and eye-catching cities in the world – from Marrakesh to Paris, with the season finale a double header in New York. This will be the fifth season of Formula E, and promises to be the most exciting and interesting so far, with some big names among the 11 teams and 22 drivers. The opening race in Riyadh is live on the BBC Sport website, Red Button and Connected TVs from 12:00 GMT on Saturday.” says Gary Rose for BBC Sport today: “New for 2018-19 is ‘Attack Mode’ – akin to something from Mario Kart, this is another temporary speed boost that will be available to drivers…

Multiple Rapid Charging / Charging concerns & why I wouldn’t buy a 39kWh Kona Electric



Not my finest video creation for sure. I’ve really disliked making this video from start to end.

The idea was simple, three rapid charges and some quick driving but I wasn’t to know my opinion of the car would dramatically change.

So much of the footage I shot became redundant and Inappropriate once I analysed the data. The car seems to charge slower than I expected and potentially had issues charging from cold. The BMS becomes active at various times without a consistent pattern.

Compared to the 64kwh version the 39kwh is half the car when you consider it’s limited range in worst case scenarios and slower charging performance.

Remember this is my opinion only and I’ve been spoilt with the 64kwh version.

With so much secrecy from Hyundai about what the BMS is actually doing, we simply can’t fully understand the cars abilities in respect to charging and hence it’s sadly easy to draw conclusions from tests such as this. Ideally, such tests would be repeated over multiple times to prove results and again varying parameters to learn more.

The charging time of 57 minutes seemed accurate for the 20% to 80% charge but sadly 6% to 80% wasn’t so swift.

Does the 39kwh Kona have issues charging from cold? Why does the BMS come on when the battery is cold? Why was charging limited to 14kw from cold in my final test? All unanswered I’m afraid.

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.

10 Oct 2018 | The Tesla Effect On Disrupting Oil, UK’s First 60kW Rapid Charge Point and Three…

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

 

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Wednesday 10th October 2018. It’s Martyn Lee here and I’ve been through EV story today so you don’t have to.

 

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.

 

Thank you to yet another Patreon Producer. You are a legend JOHN RILEY

 

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. …
