Show #871

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Wednesday 19th August 2020. It’s Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don’t have to.

 

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.

LUCID SUV SPOTTED

GENESIS EG80 ALL-ELECTRIC LUXURY SEDAN SPIED NEAR THE NURBURGRING

“Genesis updated its flagship sedan earlier this year, etching the GV80 SUV’s design onto the refreshed model. It debuted with two gas engines, and, outside the US, a diesel. However, new spy photos from near the Nurburgring show the luxury brand is developing another powertrain for the G80 – an all-electric one. ” says Motor1: “There are zero details about the electric powertrain. We don’t know how many motors it’ll have, its range, or the battery pack’s capacity. TheKoreanCarBlog.com reported last month that the eG80 would compete against cars like the Tesla Model S, Mercedes EQS, and others, and it’ll arrive within two years. Genesis is also developing the ability to perform over-the-air firmware updates to the vehicle like Tesla does with its model, giving the eG80 the capability to change and improve a range of vehicle functions.”

BOLLINGER DOUBLES STAFF AND MOVES TO MICHIGAN

“Bollinger Motors has quickly made itself at home since moving to Michigan from New York. From a studio space to a headquarters in Ferndale, both in the Metro Detroit area, it has continued to develop and show off prototypes of its all electric B1 sport ute and B2 pickup truck. Its staff has grown considerably, and its looming product portfolio has grown, too (now including an electric chassis cab based on the B2 for commercial applications).” writes Autoblog: “The move comes as Bollinger plans to double its workforce to about 80 team members by the end of the year. The all-electric B1 and B2 are designed for serious off-roading. They feature a dual-motor powertrain that delivers 614 horsepower and 688 pound-feet of torque, have a payload of over 5,000 pounds, and a towing capacity of 7,500 pounds. An adjustable hydro-pneumatic suspension and portal axles allow the driver to choose between 10 and 20 inches of ground clearance. They each feature a 120-kWh lithium-ion battery pack.”

TESLA TAPS TSMC AND BROADCOM FOR 7NM HPC PROCESSOR

“The company is reporting teaming with Broadcom to make a new 7nm processor, something known as HW 4.0 — which will power its next-gen Full Self Driving (FSD) computer. The new 7nm HPC chip will be made on TSMC’s 7nm node and will be made later this year — and put into cars in 2022 and beyond.” says TweakTown.com: “Mass production on the new Tesla Motors FSD chip will begin in late 2021, which is mostly because TSMC is absolutely flooded with orders for its 7nm node. AMD is building its entire Ryzen CPU and Radeon GPU families of products on the 7nm node by TSMC, the next-gen Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles and their semi-custom APUs are being made by TSMC, and so much more on 7nm Tesla Motors’ new HW 4.0 chip will also make use of TSMC’s Integrated FanOut (InFo) packaging technology, something that will reduce the overall package surface area and allow for lower thermal resistance. It will use TSMC’s latest System on Wafer (SoW) technology that doesn’t require a substrate and PCB in the entire process.”

Is it HW4? Is it Dojo? ie for their servers? Is it both?

NEW TRITIUM 175KW DC FAST CHARGER

The electric vehicle (EV) charging experience is now even closer to the speed of a gas station visit with the new DC fast charger from leading provider, Tritium. The RT175-S smart charging system powers EVs to an 80 percent charge in 15 minutes on average and is the first charger on the U.S. market capable of Plug and Charge, a communications protocol enabling electric vehicles and charging equipment to communicate, authenticate and bill customers via the charging cable. No longer will drivers need an RFID membership card, smartphone application or credit card reader to pay for their charge. With Plug and Charge, a charging session can be automatically and securely billed from the moment the plug connects to the vehicle, regardless of the network operator. This advancement in charging technology streamlines and simplifies the charging experience, while improving customer data security.

ELECTRIFY AMERICA COLLABORATES WITH LOVE’S TRAVEL STOPS

“Electrify America, the largest open direct current (DC) fast-charging network in the US will work with Love’s Travel Stops, the US’ industry-leading travel stop network, to bring public ultra-fast electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to seven locations in six US states.” says Green Car Congress: “The seven charging stations, located in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Utah, Florida, New York and Arizona, will have a combined 28 EV chargers and be available for public use by early 2021; five locations are already open. The most recent Love’s station opening in Salina, Utah, helped complete a cross-country route of Electrify America chargers spanning from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. Depending on the location, Love’s customers   will have access to chargers ranging in power from 150 kW to 350 kW.”

UK TAKES THE NEXT STEP IN CURBSIDE ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING

“World-first technology that could unlock electric vehicle charging for people without driveways or garages is being trialed across London. Startup company Trojan Energy is installing 200 of its chargers across Brent and Camden. Each charge point is slotted into the ground with a flat and flush connection. The technology has no permanent footprint or street clutter as the hardware is only visible when a vehicle is charging.” according to Electric Vehicle Research: “The technology consists of 2 parts – a charge point slotted into the ground, and a ‘lance’ which is inserted into the charge point in order to charge. The charger can provide charge rates from 2kW to 22kW, and up to 18 chargers can run in parallel from one electricity network connection”

JLR PROGRESSES PROJECT ZEUS TO PUSH FCEV FOR MID-2020

“Jaguar Land Rover is working with partners in the British government-sponsored ‘Zeus’ project to develop fuel cell versions of its larger vehicles. A drivable prototype is to be available shortly.” says electrive: “JLR was among the carmakers that benefitted from £73.5 million in funding through the Advanced Propulsion Centre that the British government announced in June. In the case of Jaguar Land Rover, the company is using the money to further project Zeus to develop fuel cell technology. Autocar now reports that progress is being made as the first fuel cell concept to emerge from this project will probably be an SUV the size of the Range Rover Evoque. The next-generation Range Rover Evoque’s arrival is expected in the middle of the 2020s. JLR may then use the fuel cell technology for zero-emissions versions of larger models in the future.”
