PORSCHE IS SETTING UP ELECTRIC CAR INSURANCE FOR THE TAYCAN

“With the launch of the Taycan, Porsche Financial Services is now offering not only established motor vehicle insurance but also a policy specially tailored to electric cars.” reports electrive: “According to the press release, the new policy supplements the existing Porsche CarPolicy with, for example, special protection for the battery and charging station as well as mobility protection. Porsche did not give any information on the policy’s costs or detailed conditions in the press release.”

 

“A highlight of ‘E-Cover’ is the original price protection for the battery in the event of damage. Extensive cyber protection is another innovative component of the product”.

MAERSK TO PILOT 600 KWH CONTAINERIZED BATTERY SYSTEM ON CONTAINER SHIP

“A containerized 600 kWh marine battery system will be installed in a trial on board the Maersk Cape Town in December 2019 to improve vessel performance and reliability while reducing CO2 emissions.” says Green Car Congress: “Propelling marine vessels with battery power alone is still years away from being a technically- and economically-viable option, Maersk says. However marine battery systems can be used to improve the efficiency of a vessel’s onboard electrical systems such as the Maersk Cape Town’s generators. By maintaining the vessel’s auxiliary generators at a more optimal load, and avoiding running generators when not needed, overall fuel consumption can be reduced.”

DTM REVEALS A 1,000 HP CONCEPT FOR AN ALL-ELECTRIC RACING SERIES

DTM—also known as Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters—has introduced a 1,000 horsepower concept of the future for what will inevitably be an all-electric (or an all-hydrogen) series. That’s a pretty massive upgrade from the series’ current 600 HP combustion engines.” reports Jalopnik: “A press release makes it very clear that this newer, more eco-friendly series will run alongside DTM without actually replacing it just yet. DTM’s promoter ITR is pretty keen on keeping both series around as long as possible.”

ELECTRIFICATION FOR TRUCKING FROM TEVVA

“On Wednesday, electric commercial vehicle pioneer Tevva unveiled its Electrify initiative, aiming to drive the electrification of medium-duty HGVs through the deployment of up to 50 electric trucks across the United Kingdom and Europe over the next six months.” according to GreenBiz: “Tevva has developed a package of EV technologies tailored for HGV vehicles, including battery packs, fleet management systems and advanced cloud-based software that uses geofencing capabilities to autonomously control a range extender and ensure vehicles can switch to zero-emissions mode to optimize efficiency and minimize air pollution in built-up areas.”

FORD MUSTANG-INSPIRED ELECTRIC CROSSOVER CAUGHT ALMOST CAMO FREE

“The Ford Mustang-inspired electric SUV unveiling is scheduled for November 17, ahead of the LA Auto Show, but we already obtained photos of a barely disguised prototype.” says InsideEVs: “It seems that the new long-range electric Ford is more like a crossover than an actual SUV. Size and shape probably will put it in the same segment as the Tesla Model Y.”

FORMER DAIMLER CEO PRAISES TESLA, BUT SAYS GERMANS REMAIN PERMANENTLY AHEAD

Former Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche recently shared his thoughts on the electric car revolution and the part played by American electric car maker Tesla. Now retired and without commitments to a specific automaker, Zetsche freely praised Elon Musk, stating that he adores the daring Tesla CEO.” says Simon Alvarez at Teslarati: “Thus, despite his admiration for Elon Musk, Zetsche believes that established automakers will be permanently ahead. Volkswagen, BMW, and Daimler are all making big moves on electromobility.”
