Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Monday 26th April. 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.
IONIQ5 YOUTUBE REVIEWS ARE OUT
The embargo lifted early this morning for reviews of the new Hyundai IONIQ 5, so let’s have a look at the highlights and takeaways from around the web:
Fully Charged – the most gorgeous car i’ve seen this year. Doesn’t look like the crossovers everyone else is making. Acceleration was nice but not staggering. The adapter to plug in your domestic plug lives under teh floor in the boot. He loved the regen paddles behind the wheel, the cliky buttons, the style of the interior is like driving an Apple Store. And he has a fight with the motorizes charging flap.
Jonny Smith – likes the 3 metres wheelbase, more than a Range Rover. Loves the flat floor, no rear wiper because the aero pushes the water off, 800v, the augmented HUD, said he’s strugling to find fault with it. The 155mph top speed not a problem. Worth watching just to see what he powers from the car.
WhatCar? – likes the twin screens, the charge to 80% in 18 minutes, their version of Nissan’s e-Pedal is the i-Pedal.
nextmove – loves the pixel lights, self-presentign door handles, he showed the internal plug socket which the UK ones didn’t, he showed off the key which had buttons for forward and back. aka Tesla Summon. But he charges it on IONITY, charging at 223kW at 50%!
HYUNDAI IONIQ 5 THRASHES COMPETITORS AT CHARGING
“Unlike the previous artificial example, this time we can take a look at charging results of Hyundai Ioniq 5 from 10% to 80% State of Charge (SOC) in South Korea on April 20, 2021, at an outside temperature of 19°C and the battery temperature of 15°C (initial, we guess).” says InsideEVs: “The charging curve is quite complex, with multiple sharp increases and decreases along the way. It starts at about 115 kW at 10% SOC, at 14-15% SOC it increases to about 187 kW, and then again to 220 kW at 29-30% SOC. The peak range is quite wide: between 30 to 51%. The peak value of more than 225 kW appears to be reached around 51% SOC, but then power quickly decreases (maybe due to too high temperature of the battery cells) to “just” 120 kW at 52-54%. Once the temperature stabilizes (we guess), the charging power increased once again to 170 kW. By 79-80% it decreases to around 130 kW.”
RIMAC SHOWS OFF C_TWO HYPERCAR ACCELERATION
They say it will be the fastest accelerating production car in the world. They did 10 launches, going from 80% to 60% over those runs.
“The fully homologated road-going prototype was put to the test in quarter-mile runs and managed to complete the task in 8.95 seconds at 156.1 mph (251.2 km/h) after doing 0-60 mph in 2.42 seconds in the very first outing with the tires still cold. Following several trial runs, the first proper quarter-mile sprint took only 8.94 seconds at 155.1 mph (249.7 km/h).” writes Motor1.com: “When a company’s CEO says a 0 to 60 mph run in 2.33 seconds is “quite bad,” you know that car is going to be an absolute rocket. After all, Rimac has previously said the production model will do the job in 1.85 seconds on its way to a top speed of 258 mph (412 km/h) thanks to a whopping 1,914 horsepower (1,408 kilowatts) and 1,696 pound-feet (2,300 Newton-meters) of torque.”
TESLA EARNINGS CALL PREVIEW.
Tesla earning call late and night and into the early morning for me, so that will all be on Tuesday’s podcast.
Their Q1 production and delviery numbres confirmed they delviered 184,800 and producer over 180,000 vehicles from Jan to Mar.
Model S and MOdel X absence. No sign of the presenation of Elon Musk promised within a week, that was in January. Deliveries were due to start Feb/Mar and they’re showing as July. Not the first EV maker to face delays and won’t be the last.
RIVIAN UPDATE WEBSITE WITH Q&A
Rivian R1T deliveries are on track to start in June, that’s only just over a month away, and now they’ve updated their website to help the customer experience. They’ve called it…Experience! You can get info on the purchasing process, charging, service, and evne their own insurance product.
THIS VW ID.4 IS CHALLENGING THE BAJA PENINSULA
“Volkswagen is fielding its newest ID.4 electric crossover in the National Off-Road Racing Association (NORRA) Mexican 1000 race in the Mexican Baja peninsula. Most people are not aware that a Meyers Manx – an off-road dune buggy based on the iconic VW Beetle – won the inaugural NORRA Mexican 1000 back in 1967. And now, it’s the VW ID. 4’s turn to prove its merits in the harsh Mexican terrain.” reports SlashGear: ” It starts with a stock 2021 VW ID.4 1st Edition model with a single rear-mounted 201-horsepower electric motor and an 82 kWh battery pack. Next, the wizards at Rhys Millen Racing gave it a set of rally-style coilover struts, tubular lower front control arms, and boxed lower rear links. With the mods in place, the VW Id.4 sits two inches higher off the ground than stock. Rhys Millen Racing relocated the radiator several inches higher to improve both the vehicle’s cooling capacity and approach angle. You’ll also find additional skid plates and 8/8-inch steel reinforcements in the undercarriage”
