Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Thursday 28th November 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.

 

Good luck for Thursday’s Thanksgiving Carmageddon!

 

TESLA CYBERTRUCK ‘SPOTTED’

From Teslarati: “Just days following its high-profile unveiling, the Tesla Cybertruck has been spotted accelerating on a public street, followed closely by a blue Model X. Particularly interesting was the fact that the vehicle was captured on film in broad daylight, providing a brief yet notable glimpse at just how futuristic Tesla’s heavyweight pickup really is compared to other vehicles on the road.” Based on the video, the vehicle seemed to be passing through Crenshaw Blvd. right in front of the construction of The Millenium apartment near SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, CA. The sighting appeared to have happened in the afternoon as well, based on the shadows of the vehicles in the area.”

TESLA ASKS SUPPLIERS TO ACCELERATE MODEL Y PART DELIVERIES

“Elon Musk recently announced that Tesla is accelerating the timeline to bring Model Y to production in the summer of 2020, but now suppliers hint that it could happen even sooner.” reports Electrek: “We recently learned that Tesla is working on a fifth assembly line at the Fremont factory as the automaker is preparing the production of its fifth electric vehicle.But now a report from Taiwan about several Tesla suppliers claim that the automaker has requested that they expedite shipments of parts for Model Y to the current quarter. United Daily News in Taiwan reported (translated from Chinese):”Recently, Tesla has been successively notified that it requires advance preparation for Model Y mass production, which is about six months earlier than the original schedule.”  it seems clear that Tesla is planning to start low volume production relatively soon. Likely in Q1 2020.”

USED EV VALUES INCREASING WITH DEMAND

“Demand for electric cars is seeing used values increasing, according to new analysis by CarGurus. While petrol and diesel models have depreciated between January 2017 and November 2019, EVs have seen appreciating values.” says Chris Lilly at Next Green Car: “Looking at the four most searched for electric models on the company’s site – BMW’s i3, the Nissan Leaf, Renault’s Zoe, and the Tesla Model S – prices either rose or remained level for months at a time. In most cases, they significantly out-performed the most searched for petrol and diesel equivalents over the same period. The average asking price for a used 2015 Renault Zoe increased by 18% between January 2017 to November 2019, from £6,425 to £7,612. To compare, the Ford Fiesta of the same age decreased by 22% from £9,165 to £7,160 over the same period. BMW i3 values increased by 1% based on 2014 examples, while petrol or diesel Mini hatchbacks by comparison fell by 14%, both since the start of the year. A 2015 Nissan Leaf sees an average drop in value of just 9% from January 2017 at £10,438. Same age petrol or diesel VW Golf models dropped by 17% over the same period.”

GLOBAL VOLKSWAGEN E-GOLF SALES REACH 100,000 BEFORE LAUNCH OF ID.3

“Before the ID.3 was even unveiled in September, Volkswagen announced that it had received more than 30,000 pre-orders for the sub-brand-launching electric hatchback. Its predecessor, the e-Golf, didn’t have nearly as splashy of a launch, but it recently hit a milestone of its own. Volkswagen has officially delivered 100,000 e-Golfs.” according to Autoblog: “e-Golf production at the Dresden plant is on pace to set a new record in 2019, as Volkswagen believes it will see an output of more than 16,000 vehicles built. In total, roughly 27,900 e-Golfs were delivered to customers from January through October, 2019, up from 24,800 deliveries in all of 2018.”

RENAULT ZOE REACHED NEW MILESTONE: 200.000 UNITS PRODUCED

On 25 November 2019, at 3.10 pm, a pearl black New Renault ZOE Intens rolled off the production line at the Renault plant in Flins sur Seine (Yvelines) to loud applause. It was the 200,000th electric vehicle to be built on the site since production of the 1st generation Renault ZOE began in 2012.

 

For this special occasion, the lucky Dutch buyer and the director of the Renault concession that sold the vehicle were invited to Flins. Jean-Luc Mabire, Plant Director, symbolically handed over the keys to this New ZOE to its delighted owner. Since July 2019, Flins has produced over 15,000 New ZOE vehicles, which have been delivered to customers in more than 25 countries in Europe.
