15 May 2019 | Electrify America Opens Superfast Charger, Audi Goes After Tesla Supercharging…

Show #472

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Wednesday 15th 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 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.


There’s a great, long-read CNBC article all about Electrify America which I recommend today. “Almost a year to the day after opening its first charging station, Electrify America says it is rolling out the country’s fastest-growing network of fast chargers. Funded by $2 billion from Volkswagen’s 2016 diesel emissions settlement, it has a goal of building hundreds of stations and putting nearly 2,000 chargers in place by the end of this year.” says CNBC: “Setting up a nationwide infrastructure is the next big challenge, according to many analysts. An August study by McKinsey & Co. projected it will cost as much as $50 billion to ensure public charging stations are as easily accessible as gas stations in three key markets — the U.S., Europe and China. The U.S. alone is expected to require an investment of as much as $11 billion, McKinsey estimated.”

But why replicate the gas station model? Shouldn’t we charge at home and work?

“Electrify America’s new Level 3 systems will almost all provide a minimum of 150 kilowatts at 400 volts and many will push even further, taking that up to 250 kW and 800 volts. That’s far more than most of the current crop of electric cars can handle. The new Porsche Taycan will be the first to be able to make full use of the technology, which can add about 20 miles of range per minute.To make things easier and speed up the charging process, Electrify America this week is rolling out a new smartphone app that can be used to locate its charging stations and see how long it will take for someone already hooked up to finish charging.”


“In these two spy images taken from the Taycan Forum, you can see that the cabin of the first all-electric Porsche is almost the same as what the Mission E concept had in its debut three years ago.” says today: “The resemblance starts at the dashboard layout, which is crowned by a horizontal digital display that flanks across the dashboard. Moreover, the touchscreen control panel by the center console has been carried over from the concept.”


Audi is introducing the vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) service “Traffic Light Information” to Europe. From July Audi will network new models with the traffic lights in Ingolstadt/Germany; further European cities will follow from 2020 onwards. Then cars will be more likely to catch a “green wave” in the city: Audi drivers will see in the cockpit what speed is required to reach the next traffic light on green. If that is not possible within the permitted speed limit, there will be a countdown to the next green phase. Driving in cities will thus become more relaxed and efficient. In the USA, Audi customers have already been using this service since late 2016. Audi is the first manufacturer worldwide to network its series-production models with traffic lights in cities. In the USA, Audi customers have been using the “Time-to-Green” function for two years: if the driver will reach the lights on red, a countdown in the Audi virtual cockpit or head-up display counts the seconds to the next green phase. This service is now available at more than 5,000 intersections in the USA, for example in cities including Denver, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Portland and Washington D.C. In the US capital alone, about 1,000 intersections are linked to the Traffic Light Information function.

Since February Audi has offered a further function in North America. The purpose of this is especially to enable driving on the “green wave”. “Green Light Optimized Speed Advisory” (GLOSA) shows to the driver in the ideal speed for reaching the next traffic light on green.

Audi etron will get this function.


“South Korea’s SK Innovation said on Wednesday that it plans to invest 579.9 billion won ($488.30 million) to build its second China factory for electric vehicle batteries, in a bet that China will open up its market to Korean battery makers.” reports Reuters today: “The latecomer to the battery market is…

For your convenience, here are my notes, to give you an idea of the contents of this video (I realize it’s a rather long video).

Charging / Range

How often do you really have to charge it? Also does the battery drain after it isn’t in use for a while?

I’d like to know more about how your day to day has changed compared to driving a gas powered car. Do you have to do more planning to find charging stations? How is it accounting for charging times in your day to day? Have you adjusted your trips based on range limitations? etc

What do you do if you don’t have a garage to charge it conveniently.

I have had a lot of people tell me that they think you can’t travel with them.

How do you charge it at home?

My fear of a Tesla is that Houston metropolitan area doesn’t have supercharger stations. I see ppl in Teslas and I wonder what would happen if they get low and aren’t close to home.

NOOOO Gas – no maintenance (look up everything) mention regenerative breaking

Batteries take a long time to charge. Limited by range on battery

Mention super chargers

Mention at home charging more convenient, never have to go to gas station

-How inconvenient is it to find a charger in public compared to just driving up to a gas station

-Long trip planning, do you have to go out of your way to find a supercharger or are they pretty common now?

-What’s the range on the interstate vs city driving.

I live in a very rural area, and even a city an hour away doesn’t have a supercharger or any kind I don’t think. How fast do you think they’ll expand them as they make more, and will it make it to more rural areas?


-What maintenance still needs to be done (I hear the fluid that cools the batteries needs to be changed at intervals)

Environmental / green impacts / converserial stuff

polution is more ? Battery creation etc?
Minning lithium is bad for enviroment and creation of the battery. Keep in mind of no oil spills etc. transporting etc. Lithium can be recycled. Fossil fuels cannot be. You mine lithium just as you can mine salt. Don’t forget tesla can be charged by teh sun. Mention Tesla powerwall and solar

Cars catching on fire

Features / Interior /

No apple care play / android auto

– you hook your iPad up to it?

-can’t get into car if your phone is dead

I would love to know more about the center console.

Are you able to use the self-driving feature where you live?

I’ve met people that literally think that all Teslas are full self driving cars already.


– insurance is expensive

-How expensive is it to install a home 220v charger

-What’s the impact on the home electric bill

– won’t my electric bill skyrocket

2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat vs. 2015 Tesla Model S P85D! – Head 2 Head Ep. 65

On this episode of Head 2 Head, presented by Tire Rack (, host Jonny Lieberman puts the quickest sedan in the world up against the fastest sedan in the world. Unlike most “this versus that” competitions, the object of this match up is to figure out which family sedan is the bigger badass. In the red corner, making 691 electric horsepower and 687 pound-feet of torque, is the dual-electric motor, all-wheel drive Tesla Model S P85D. And in the blue corner, packing a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that’s good for 707 hp and 650 pound-feet of torque. As you can gather from the power figures, these two are evenly matched. But one’s a bigger badass than the other. Watch and find out which!

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 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.


“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 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…


30 Apr 2019 | GM Confirms Electric Pickup, Faraday Future Gets Another Lifeline and A Tesla…

Show #459

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Tuesday 30th April 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 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.


“General Motors CEO Mary Barra has just confirmed that the automaker is indeed readying an electric pickup truck to compete with the likes of the electric Ford F-150 and Rivian R1T.” reports InsideEVs today: ” As Barra stated, electric “full-size pickups” are indeed in the future plans for the automaker. No further details were provided. Therefore, we don’t even know if the electric truck will be a Chevrolet, GMC or other make. It’s all up in the air at the moment, aside from full confirmation that an electric truck is in the works. These surely are interesting times for electric vehicles and, more specifically, electric pickup trucks. We’re now just around the corner from the launch of not one, but several all-new electric trucks.”


“Embattled electric vehicle (EV) maker Faraday Future has received another lifeline in the wake of a dispute with Chinese real estate giant Evergrande—one of the startup’s major investors.” according to TechNode today: “Faraday announced on Monday that it had received $225 million in bridge financing ahead of the company completing a $1.25 billion capital raise, which it expects to close this year. The latest financing, led by US-based asset management firm Birch Lake Associates, is aimed at helping to bring Faraday’s flagship FF91 SUV to market.”

Meanwhile Engadget reports: “”As part of the vendor program, Birch Lake has also provided financing to FF for the company to pay all past due amounts for approximately 60 percent of FF’s vendor base, including smaller vendors who are owed less than $20,000,” the company wrote. Meanwhile, larger suppliers will be able to exchange unsecured debt for “trust interests” that will include a repayment schedule. To secure the financing, Faraday said it valued its intellectual property at $1.25 billion. The company plans to use The9’s cash to build the V9 EV, a version of the Faraday FF91 for the Chinese market. It has promised to build 300,000 of the EVs per year by 2020, and said it has a growing fleet of FF91 pre-production test vehicles.”

EV maker Faraday Future says it procured an additional $225 million in financing


“Tesla Energy is taking part in a Vermont utility company’s efforts to push its customers towards sustainable energy solutions. Dubbed as the Resilient Home program, the initiative aims to bring Tesla Powerwalls to an initial 250 homes, all of which will be using the battery storage unit as backup power and as a replacement electric meter.” writes Simon Alvarez for Teslarati “The program is being launched by Vermont-based Green Mountain Power, which prides itself for being one of the most climate-conscious utility companies in the United States. Customers who are part of the Resilient Home pilot will be able to acquire two Tesla Powerwall 2 units for $30 a month or a $3,000 upfront fee. Apart from allowing customers to get more benefits from wind and solar and providing backup power during outages, the Powerwall 2 units will also be measuring customers’ energy use, effectively replacing conventional meters.”

Green Mountain Power CEO Mary Powell stated: “Our vision — our dream — is that there ends up being a battery in every home and business,””


“RAC patrol vans will soon get portable electric car chargers to help vehicles that run out of battery at the roadside. The system, which was developed by the RAC and partner firm Original Ltd, is designed to give stranded electric vehicles (EVs) a “top up” that allows them to reach the nearest charging point. The “lightweight” EV Boost chargers can take power from a standard Euro 6 diesel patrol van and work with all Type 1 and Type 2 charging connectors. This, the RAC claims, allows the chargers to work with “99 percent of electric vehicles on UK roads today”.


Off-grid Tesla Solar Charger: 4kw solar input, 3kw AC output, ATS and more! 3 hour build time

Parts list and components:

As most of you realized from watching the video till the end, charging a tesla with solar only is completely unrealistic. This system is capable of level 1 charging while sunny, but the moment the sun goes below 45 degrees of horizon, it will switch to battery/grid (it will discharge the batteries pretty quickly).

So this system is great for supplementing your charging system, reduce your overall electricity bill and as an emergency backup, but that’s about it. If you have full solar power coming in, it will take 96 hours to charge a tesla! and each day only has 5-6 hours of full sunshine available.

This is the ultimate “prepper” solar power system, considering its cost and size, and what it can produce in dire circumstances.

To build a solar array capable of charging at 240 volts, you would need to spend 50k or more and you would need a lot of land to mount the panels. Not really worth it.

This system is a great idea for people with electric motorcycles! You can charge it no problem with this system.
