Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Monday Monday 11th February 2019. It’s Martyn Lee here and I’ve been through every EV story I can find today, and picked out the ones I think you need to know about.

 

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.

 

Welcome to our newest member of the Patreon gang it’s a new EXECUTIVE PRODUCER MICHAEL PASTRONE.

 

 

FOLLOW UP WITH HUBJECT ON PLUG & CHARGE

  • Plug and Charge is being rolled out on the next generation of BEVs…so that includes the EQC, e-tron, Taycan etc. CharInEV.org: “The two CharIN members Hubject and Electrify America recently announced to cooperate in the establishment of Plug & Charge in the North American market. Electrify America will implement the Plug & Charge mechanism in its charging stations. For supporting the broader market rollout, the “CharIN Implementation Guide to Plug and Charge” based on ISO 15118 will be available for all CharIN members in the first quarter of this year. The implementation of ISO 15118 is a significant step for smart charging of electric vehicles and the vehicle network communication (V2G). It allows vehicles to automatically authenticate and authorize when loading. RFID cards, credit cards or mobile apps will not be needed any more.”

TESLA DELIVERY HANDLING IN EUROPE

  • So who has the resources to handover so manhy ship loads? ICO – International Car Operators. And this post from Reddit: “ICO Zeebrugge, Belgium had to install 300 superchargers as part of the weekly 3000 cars Tesla contract. Charging to 80% at arrival.”
  • From a local newspaper: “ICO invested around 2.5 million euros (3 million $) at its terminal in 300 charging stations that can program eight cars in sequence. In the long term, 1,500 are planned. The cars leave 80 percent charged to the consumer”.”ICO is already transferring 2,1 of the 2,8 million cars a year in Zeebrugge, “but we need expansion”, ICO boss Marc Adriansens said in May this year. “The market is still growing and Zeebrugge is very popular with all car shipping companies.” Japanese logistics specialist Nippon Yusen Kaisha announced earlier this year an investment in its ICO car terminal with 60 million euro of which one-third will be put in a wind mill park at the site. The new wind farm will have a capacity of 44 megawatt and a yearly production of 110 gigawatt hour, good enough to provide a city like Bruges with energy for one year. The wind farm should be operational by end 2019.”

TESLA MODEL 3 COST SURPRISED PORSCHE AND AUDI AFTER REVERSE-ENGINEERING

  • “Tesla Model 3 is now entering the European market and it is making some automakers nervous. According to a new report, Porsche and Audi reverse-engineered Tesla’s new electric car and they were quite surprised by its cost.” according to Fred at Electrek: “Now a new report from Germany’s Manager Magazin (German and paywall) includes a deep dive into the state of Audi with comments from executives and insider sources. It claims that Porsche and Audi, who are working together on a next-generation electric platform, had to change their approach because the cost was too high compared to what Tesla is achieving.”
  • The report says: “The e-tron as the first electric Audi is not only late. It does not reach some target values and has become far too expensive with more than two billion euros in development costs. The approximately 600,000 cars sold for the break-even are now regarded as an illusion.”
  • In Fred’s comments: “A decade from now, I think we will not only look back at Model 3 for how the vehicle program accelerated EV adoption through volume but also for the impact it had on other automakers.”

NIKOLA TO RELEASE BEV VERSION OF THEIR H² TRUCKS

  • A new electrive report today says: “Nikola Motor announced battery electric variants for their hydrogen trucks Nikola Two and Nikola Tre, which will be offered in addition to the fuel cell versions. There will be three battery capacities to choose from: 500 kWh, 750 kWh and 1,000 kWh.” says Chris Randall: “While the fuel cell versions will be designed for long-haul use, Nikola Motor will be targeting short-haul use with the BEV versions. Nikola’s plans to build over 700 hydrogen stations in the USA and Canada with partner Nel Hydrogen by 2028 remain unaffected by the news. Each station should be capable of producing 2,000 to 8,000 kilos of hydrogen per day. “

ZERO DS POLICE EDITION ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE STOPS A TELSA MODEL S

  • “Zero Motorcycles, the electric two-wheeler company, posted a photo from a “Bay Area police customer” on the company’s Facebook page.” says Digital Trends: “The fast but silent Zero DS police edition motorcycle pulled over an also silent and fast Telsa Model 3. As Zero Motorcycles wrote in the Facebook post, “In what must have been the quietest police pursuit ever, an officer on a Zero DS police bike pulled over a Tesla. Big thanks to a Bay Area police customer for capturing a snapshot of the future. #RideElectric”. Zero Motorcycles sells police fleet editions of its Zero FX and Zero DSR motorcycles. In addition to being almost totally silent and extremely fast, Zero’s electric motorcycles require no drivetrain maintenance and fuel costs are a fraction of gas-powered motorcycles, both big pluses for police department budgets.”

CHEVROLET TIPPED TO LAUNCH ALL-ELECTRIC SILVERADO

  • “Just don’t expect it to come all that soon. It’s not just sedans, hatchbacks, and crossovers that are going electric. So too will pickup trucks… some day. And when that day comes, General Motors doesn’t plan to watch from the sidelines.” according to CarBuzz: “Automobile reports that GM plans to launch an all-electric version of the Chevrolet Silverado. The news stems from a question posed to by an analyst during GM’s recent financial-earnings conference call. Asked whether the company was working on an electric Silverado, GM CEO Mary Barra answered: “We believe in an all EV future so you’ll have to stay tuned.” Just a few weeks ago, news surfaced of just such a project under way for an electric GMC Sierra – the Silverado’s twin.”
