Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Tuesday 9th July 2019. It’s Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story to save you time.          

 

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.

 

MOTOE: NIKI TUULI WINS FIRST ELECTRIC MOTORBIKE RACE

“Niki Tuuli from Finland has won the first race of the new MotoE World Cup at the Sachsenring in Germany” reports electrive: “In MotoE, Energica’s standard motorcycles and Michelin’s tyres will be used – for this reason, no rider was able to stand out decisively. At times the leading group consisted of eight riders. The premiere had to be stopped after six laps after a crash by Lorenzo Savadori – among other things, the bike could not be recovered immediately after the accident because it had crashed into the track boundary. The next MotoE race will take place as part of the MotoGP race in Austria on 11 August.”

MG ZS EV SEEN DC FAST CHARGING AT UP TO 85 KW

“The MG ZS EV is another upcoming new electric car in Europe (actually, it’s initially limited to the UK), which was seen at the Fastned DC fast charging station in the Netherlands.” reports InsideEVs: “According to Michiel Barendse, who shared a photo, a Chinese test driver apprised him of a peak charging power of 85 kW (CCS Combo 2), a range of 270 km (168 miles) WLTP and an expected base price of €30,000 ($33,700).”

That’s from a 44.5kWh

REPORT: SK INNOVATION TO BEGIN MAKING NMC 811 CELLS IN Q3 2019

“SK Innovation, a major Korean battery maker, has announced it will begin using a state-of-the-art NMC 811 lithium-ion cell chemistry during the third quarter of this year, according to a report in a South Korean newspaper.” as per electricrevs.com: “SK Innovation had previously announced it would begin the production of NMC 811 cells beginning in late 2018 and there was some speculation that those cells would be used in the 2019 Kia Niro EV. SK eventually supplied cells to Kia that are reportedly similar in characteristics to the NMC 622 cells that its competitor LG Chem supplies to Kia’s sibling brand Hyundai for their 2019 Kona Electric model. Kia is also using SK cells in its new 2020 Soul EV. All three EV models use the same basic battery pack layout and design as well as other powertrain components. It’s uncertain if this news means that Kia will now use these NMC 811 cells or if they will instead go towards other customers and uses such as stationary storage.”

“Lithium-ion cells are made using various different chemistries or mixtures of metals in the cathode (positive) side of the cell while the negative or anode side typically consists of graphite. The primary lithium-ion cell cathode chemistries used in the latest generation of electric vehicles are typically referred to as NCA (Nickel, Cobalt, Aluminum) which are used by Tesla or NMC (Nickel, Manganese, Cobalt) as used by most other electric car makers. NMC is also sometimes referred to as NCM. Some Chinese car and bus makers use a lithium-ion cathode chemistry based on iron phosphate that is less energy dense. Cobalt is much more expensive than Nickel or Manganese and is primarily sourced from a small number of mines.”

PORSCHE TAYCAN AT GOODWOOD

Mark Webber drove the Taycan up the hill at Goodwood, he said: “”The Taycan’s power delivery is awesome,” reports the experienced Formula 1 driver. “I took part in this event in a Porsche 911 GT2 RS two years ago, so I already knew that it all comes down to power and traction. But, even for a thoroughbred racing driver like me, it is amazing how the Taycan — even though it’s still a prototype — accelerates off the start and out of the corners.”

 

TOYOTA DEBUTS A FULLY ELECTRIC TRANSPORTER

“Toyota presents its new commercial vehicle strategy. The most important announcement from an EV perspective: In cooperation with PSA, Toyota will launch fully battery-electric versions of the Proace and Proace City in 2020 and 2021 respectively.” says electrive: ”         Since 2016, the Toyota Proace has been manufactured together with the Citroen Jumpy and Peugeot Expert at the PSA plant in Valenciennes, France. The Opel Zafira Life also adopts this technology. The quartet is based on PSA’s EMP2 platform and has nothing to do with other Toyota models.”

Should we do things like electric racing, or setting electric records, which inevitably means burning at least some fossil fuels?
