Show #966

 

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Monday 18th January. 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.

 

KIA TEASES 7 FUTURE EVS

“Kia released teaser images of seven new electric vehicles planned for production in coming years, starting with a sleek crossover coupe that’s said to be capable of 300 miles of range on a charge. What’s more exciting is the design direction Kia is apparently about to take.” says Jalopnik: “The first of Kia’s new electric vehicles will be a “crossover-inspired” design, which just means it’ll be a crossover coupe from the looks of the teaser images. The cars will be built on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) that Kia shares with Hyundai Motor Group.  Kia claims this first model will boast a range of 500 km, or around 300 miles, and be capable of charging in 20 minutes.”

 

Also: a practical commuter, midsize crossover, a dynamic machine, a long and elegant sedan, and three commercial vehicles.

PEUGEOT 208 TO GO ALL-ELECTRIC

“Peugeot CEO Jean-Phillipe Imparato has confirmed to Auto Express that the next generation of B-segment Peugeots, replacing the current 208 and 2008, will only be available with electric power.” writes Steve Fowler: “The existing 208 and 2008, including e-208 and e-2008 versions, were only launched in 2019 and are available with petrol, diesel or electric power. The decision to go fully electric for the next generation of Peugeot small cars has been boosted by current sales of electrified models”

SKODA STARTS DELIVERING ENYAQ EV

ŠKODA AUTO delivered a total of 1,004,800 vehicles to customers in 2020, surpassing the one-million-delivery mark for the seventh year in a row. And whilst the Octavia was clearly their #1 with 257,400 deliveries, I found this at the bottom of the press release. The Skoda Enyaq iV delivered 600.

TESLA KICKS OFF MODEL Y DELIVERIES IN CHINA WITH SPECIAL CEREMONIES

“Tesla officially began deliveries today of the Model Y in China, holding special delivery ceremonies in ten different cities around the country.”  says Drive Tesla Canada: “The automaker announced the deliveries by sharing a series of images on their Twitter account showing the lucky new owners taking possession. The Model 3 quickly became the most popular electric vehicle (EV) in the country after its launch just one year ago. The Model Y will mark Tesla’s entry into the much larger SUV market in the country. If early estimates are true, it is already proving to be very popular among buyers. Customers placing an order today are already seeing estimated delivery dates into the second quarter.”

5 SUPERCHARGERS OPEN IN ONE DAY

“Tesla China opened 5 Supercharger V3 stations simultaneously in a single day in Ningbo, located in the northeast Zhejiang province. The additions to China’s ever-growing Supercharger network went online on Thursday.” says Teslarati: “According to an announcement by the Tesla China Supercharger team via Weibo, a total of 48 V3 Superchargers went online on December 14 in Ningbo. Out of the 48 stalls opened that day, 39 were located underground. The Supercharger team invited people to check out the stations during their free time.”

WAS TESLA DISRUPTED BY TRADITIONAL CARMAKERS SELLING EVS IN EUROPE?

“Tesla disrupted the automotive world by showing electric cars could be high-performance, desirable machines. Elon Musk even said his main goal was to make other car companies follow Tesla’s path before becoming the most valuable car company in the world. We have no idea if Musk still has the same motto, but European EV sales numbers show his wish was granted. More than that, it reveals the disruptor might have been disrupted.” writes InsideEVs: “Tesla started dominating the EV market in Europe by October 2019.  Between August 2020 and September 2020, Tesla was surpassed by the alliance and also by the Volkswagen Group. The VW ID.3 was introduced at the beginning of September, and sales kept rising for the German automaker and Renault, Nissan, and Mitsubishi.  Tesla ended 2020 with around 96,000 cars sold in Europe, a number that was pretty close to that Hyundai and Kia presented, at about 95,000 units. Renault, Nissan, and Mitsubishi sold around 135,000 EVs, and the Volkswagen Group hit 175,000 electric cars sold last year.”

TESLA AND DALHOUSIE UNIVERSITY INK NEW RESEARCH PARTNERSHIP DEAL

“Tesla is renewing its industrial research partnership with the Jeff Dahn lab at Dalhousie University for a second five-year term, with preeminent lithium-ion battery scientist Dahn still at the helm” says Electric Autonomy Canada: “he Tesla-Jeff Dahn-Dalhousie alliance, one of the most watched research contracts in the cleantech world, today announced a new deal for a second five-year term taking the relationship until at least 2026. The extension — with lab head Jeff Dahn remaining in his post as NSERC/Tesla Canada Inc. Industrial Research Chair and the Canada Research Chair in Materials for Advanced Batteries — sees the addition of two new chairholders: Dr. Chonyin Yang as Tesla Canada Research Chair and Dr. Michael Metzger as Herzberg-Dahn Chair. When Electric Autonomy Canada contacted Dahn this morning, he simply added, “The team is awesome.””

TESLA 4680 ‘MILLION-MILE’ BATTERY IS ALREADY HERE

“January 17, Tesla posted a new video inviting experts to join its battery cell team. The video was accompanied by the song, ‘Honey Bee’ by Don Hinton, in which the cherished words “walk a million miles” ring out. This has become a great Easter egg that indicates the company’s success in developing a million-mile battery.” says Tesmanian: “Jeff Dahn, shared some details of his research during an Energy Storage & Sustainable Engineering videoconference. Dahn revealed that, after three years of testing, he found that his cells had a lifespan of over two million miles. He has tested his battery over 20,000 cycles at a depth of charge-discharge of 100%, and found that his battery can last 15,000 cycles and still have 90% of its capacity. If we multiply 15,000 by his estimated driving range of 217 miles, we get 3.25 million miles in the worst-case scenario”

ROLLS-ROYCE SILENT SHADOW PLANNED AS ULTRA HIGH-END EV?

“Rolls is about to begin actual work on its first battery-powered model. Autocar reports the British company is preparing a standalone EV, the first details for which should be unveiled before the year’s end. Don’t expect a full reveal until later this decade though.” according to Motor1.com: “Rolls-Royce already has an all-electric Phantom prototype but it is believed the final product won’t be integrated into the existing Phantom model range. Instead, Rolls wants to launch a brand new model and the Phantom EV currently in existence will be used solely for powertrain test purposes.”
