Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Monday 6th July 2020. It’s Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don’t have to.

2021 HYUNDAI 45: NEW ELECTRIC CROSSOVER CAUGHT ON VIDEO

“The 45, Hyundai’s first bespoke electric car, has been filmed testing at the Nürburgring in preparation for an expected launch in 2021. The crossover SUV, set to rival the Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E, was previewed with a bold, retro-styled concept at the Frankfurt motor show last September.” reports Autocar.co.uk: “While it’s still considered to be a crossover, we can also see that it remains low-slung, with far less ground clearance than a traditional SUV. The 45 concept’s name references the number of years since the Korean maker’s first production car, the Pony. Hyundai also employs LEDs for the 45’s badging. Meanwhile, a charge indicator at the bottom of the doors allows the driver to quickly see how far they can drive before getting in. Technology developments showcased on the 45 concept include a camera monitoring system, which is said to leave room for “self-driving system applications”. As is common on concepts, cameras replace the side mirrors and are kept clean by a lens that rotates past a brush. Interior space is maximised by the batteries being set in a skateboard-style floor, allowing Hyundai to “create a space that feels like a living room with new pieces of furniture”. There’s lounge-style seating front and rear and the driver and front passenger get one unbroken footwell.”

OHIO ANNOUNCES STATEWIDE APPROACH TO ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING

“DriveOhio, an initiative of the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), has finalized a study to expand electric vehicles (EV) access throughout Ohio. The Electric Vehicle Charing Study is available at drive.ohio.gov.” according to Richland Source: In the study, a new state-wide strategy is outlined, identifying key steps that are necessary for expanding Ohio’s EV impact. The strategy identified various sites needed to build EV-friendly corridors throughout the state. A key recommendation from the strategy is to have EV charging stations available and installed at least every 50 miles at strategic locations along interstate, state and US route corridors. The strategy also recognizes recent investments that automobile manufacturers are making in EV technology. Last week’s unveiling of the Lordstown Motors Endurance electric pickup-truck is an example here in Ohio.”

CHARGENOW REBRANDS: BMW CHARGING & MINI CHARGING

“The ChargeNow charging service operated by Digital Charging Solutions for the BMW Group was renamed BMW Charging and Mini Charging respectively as of 1 July. Digital Charging Solutions (DCS) continues to operate the services.” reports electrive: “All ChargeNow functions will continue to be available under the new brand names. Customers can continue to use their previous login to access their accounts. However, this only applies to BMW Charging, with Mini Charging the process is more complicated: According to the ChargeNow website, Mini drivers should log in to BMW Charging, cancel their existing contract and then re-register for Mini Charging.”

 

JAGUAR LAND ROVER JOINS CAR SUBSCRIPTION CRAZE

“Automakers including Porsche, Volvo, Mercedes Benz, Cadillac, BMW, and Nissan have begun trialing car subscription services. Instead of buying and owning a car the traditional way, subscribers pay a monthly fee to access a range of vehicles depending on their requirements.” says CarBuzz: “Some have been more successful than others, however. Mercedes-Benz, for example, recently put the brakes on its Collection subscription service due to low demand. Now, Jaguar Land Rover is joining the car subscription craze with the launch of its new Pivotal subscription service. Subscribers will be able to change their car every six months to suit their lifestyles. A single monthly payment covers the rental cost, insurance, tax, servicing and repairs. Upgrading to the £1,150 ($1,437) Indigo tiers adds the Range Rover Velar, Land Rover Discovery, and Jaguar I-Pace.”

 

1,500 miles per month driving allowance

3-month minimum initial commitment, after that you can pause your subscription at any time with 14 days notice

Damage to vehicle incurs a £500 excess fee
