Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Friday 5th 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 Sebastian MacCarthy-Morrogh for being the latest to become an Executive Producer of this show, signing up on Patreon and helping to spread the word about EVs.


Happy Tweets! Lasse Edvardsen “Tesla Model X was the most sold car of any kind in Norway in September 2018 👏 Not just EV, but ANY KIND! 47,7% of all car sales was pure EVs and a new record both in Norway and worldwide”



Electrify America today announced its next $200 million investment in Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure as well as education and awareness in California which is outlined in its Cycle 2 California ZEV Investment Plan submitted to the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Cycle 2 is a 30-month investment period, which begins in July 2019. The investment announced today will build on Electrify America’s initial priorities and expand into new areas, where the need for electric vehicle charging stations and technology are greatest or are most likely to be used regularly.  

Metropolitan Areas: The central focus of electric vehicle charging infrastructure investment in Cycle 2 will shift to more DC Fast Charging (DCFC) stations within metro areas, where electric vehicle (EV) drivers are expected to charge most often. The DC Fast Charging stations will be placed in retail locations but also consider the needs of adjacent multi-unit dwellings where Level 2 (L2) residential charging deployment is oftentimes challenging.  

Highways & Regional Routes: The new Cycle 2 investments announced today will continue to build out a highway network of DCFC stations featuring charging power up to 350 kilowatts  

Residential: EV drivers conduct ‘more than 80 percent of their charging at home. First, Electrify America will develop an online tool that promotes and connects EV buyers with the wide range of residential charging incentives. Electrify America will offer ‘no-money-down’ residential chargers and installation, enabling buyers who cannot or choose not to pay for the L2 charger installation at home. The cost of installation will be incorporated into a monthly fee. Electrify America will develop a platform that will allow drivers with a home charger to earn financial rewards for plugging in and supporting a demand response platform for grid electric power stability.  




“Fuel prices reached a four-year high last month, concentrating consumers’ minds on the relative costs of internal combustion versus electric motors. For companies preparing to bring a record number of electric and hybrid models to market in 2019, oil’s rally could turbocharge demand.” reports Business Standard: “Crude oil has jumped 27 percent this year to more than $85 a barrel and major traders predict prices could reach $100 this winter as U.S. sanction of Iranian exports strain global supply. The rally has started to feed through to prices at the pump. In the U.S., average gasoline prices are on the verge of breaching $3 a gallon for the first time since 2014. utilities are pouring money into charging networks, anticipating the technology will catch on. Enel SpA in Italy, Vattenfall AB in the Nordic region and Centrica Plc in the U.K. all are building up systems to recharge car batteries even before it’s obvious how any of them can make money.”  




Patrick Danau, managing director of Audi Brussels, says by the end of this year the Audi e-tron Quttro will be produced at full capacity by 2019: “We believe that at the end of the year, we will reach our maximum capacity. You have to bear in mind not only the company has to ramp up but also the different suppliers. They have to train their people, start their own new facilities and bring them up…
