NEW YORK TO INVEST $750 MILLION TO EXPAND ELECTRIC-VEHICLE INFRASTRUCTURE

“New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday announced an investment program that would allocate $750 million to build charging stations and other electric-vehicle infrastructure as part of the state’s long-term goal to reduce emissions. The measure is set to create more than 50,000 charging stations and will largely be funded by the state’s investor-owned utility companies, with the total budget capped at $701 million through 2025.” reports Autoblog: “An additional $48.8 million is allocated from a 2017 settlement with German carmaker Volkswagen AG over its diesel emissions cheating scandal to fund electric school and transit buses, as well as charging stations. New York’s announcement comes on the heels of a similar measure by Florida, which on July 10 announced an $8.6 million investment to expand charging stations.”

RENAULT ZOE VAN REVEALED AS PRACTICAL SMALL EV WITH 245-MILE RANGE

“Created by applying modest modifications to the Zoe road car – most notably opaque rear windows and the removal of the rear seats to form a flat load area – the Zoe Van will be powered by the same 52kWh battery pack and 107bhp R110 electric motor. Its range is rated at 245 miles per charge under the WLTP test cycle, allowing for a 50% payload and 75kg driver.”£ says Autocar: “Prices without VAT but with the plug-in van grant start at £19,380 and rise to £20,995, highlighting the business savings over the Zoe road car, which starts from £28,795 with VAT and prior to the application of the electric vehicle grant.”

UK COULD BAN NON-ELECTRIC NEW CAR SALES BY 2030, SAYS SHELL

“Royal Dutch Shell expects the UK can end the sale of gasoline and diesel vehicles in just a decade, as the nation attempts to eliminate emissions by the middle of the century.” accordin to WorldOil.com: “The ban can be brought forward to 2030 with “the right policy and incentives,” Sinead Lynch, the head of oil giant Shell’s operations in Britain said on LinkedIn. That’s five years earlier than the deadline set by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in February, and also beats the 2032 date that Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said may be possible to achieve. Europe’s biggest oil companies have been preparing for a slowdown in fuels demand, and are increasingly turning their attention to electricity production”

DS TO FOCUS ON BEV & PHEV AS OF 2025

“The electrification strategy of the PSA brand DS Automobiles provides for an even stronger orientation towards e-mobility: From 2025, DS intends to offer only fully electric models and plug-in hybrids.” says electrive: “Currently, the French have a pure electric car in their range with the DS 3 Crossback E-TENSE, which takes over the drive technology from the Opel Corsa-e and Peugeot e-208. DS 4 E-TENSE is to be presented before the end of this year. At the beginning of June it was announced that a DS model will be built at Opel in Rüsselsheim from 2021 – according to reports, this will be the DS 4. Although the model is to be based on the larger EMP2 platform (which is currently offered at most as a PHEV), an electric motor with 100 kW output and a 50 kWh battery are mentioned as probable technical data.”

ITALY’S BEV SALES DOUBLED IN FIRST HALF OF 2020

“Italy’s EV market is finally getting hot. Following months of unprecedented growth and despite an incredibly adverse time in history, electric mobility has now reached the halfway point of this infamous year with outstanding figures, doubling sales from 2019. And the most important aspect is, we haven’t seen anything yet.” reports CleanTechnica: “Market share of hybrid and fully electric cars lags behind that of other European nations such as the UK, France, and Germany, let alone Scandinavian countries. market share of fully electric cars now stands at 1.7%. the Italian BEV market from booming in the first six months of 2020, doubling year over year to about 10,000 units.”

PORSCHE DELIVERED 4,480 TAYCAN ELECTRIC CARS IN FIRST HALF OF 2020

“The first deliveries of the Taycan started late last year, and therefore, 2020 is the first full year of production and deliveries for Porsche’s first all-electric car, with 4,480 deliveries during the first half of 2020.” says Electrek: “Aside from the pandemic, another thing that could have affected Taycan sales in the first half of the year is that the Taycan 4S, the cheaper version of the electric sedan, arrived just a few months ago. Furthermore, Porsche recently announced the RWD version of the Taycan, which will bring the base price even lower. However, the German automaker has only confirmed deliveries of that version for the Chinese market so far.”

NEW VAUXHALL VIVARO-E DELIVERIES TO BEGIN IN OCTOBER

Vauxhall has released further details on the Vivaro-e, its first factory-built, fully-electric van. Priced from £27,723, excluding VAT and after Plugged-in Van Grant, lease deals on the Vivaro-e will be available to order soon, with first deliveries set to commence in October. British Gas has already announced that is has ordered 1,000 Vauxhall Vivaro-e. This was the largest commercial BEV (battery electric vehicle) order in the UK to date. The Vivaro-e has a range of 188 miles on the WLTP cycle. Its payload of up to 1,226kgs is also comparable to that of similar LCVs with internal combustion engines. In fact, the load it can carry is only 130kgs less than a Vivaro fitted with a diesel engine. a 75kWh unit provides up to 188 miles of range, while business users with smaller areas to cover in the working day can opt for a 50kWh battery with a range of up to 125 miles. Using a 100kW DC public charging station, charging of the 50kWh battery to 80% only takes 30 minutes .”
