CADILLAC CANCELS DEBUT OF ALL-ELECTRIC LYRIQ OVER COVID-19 CONCERNS

"Cadillac  has cancelled the upcoming debut of the Lyriq, an all-electric mid-sized SUV designed to be an entry point into luxury brand’s new EV lineup, over concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak." reports TechCrunch: "GM’s luxury brand had planned to reveal the Lyriq on April 2 at an event in Los Angeles.  The Geneva International Motor Show was cancelled, as well as MWC in Barcelona and the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. The GM brand said in a statement that the event was being cancelled “out of an abundance of caution.”. The Lyriq is just one in a roster of electric vehicles that GM plans to bring to market in the next two years. The automaker revealed March 4 a sweeping plan to produce and sell EVs that hinges on a new electric architecture that will support a wide range of products across all of its brands, including Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC."

MINI COOPER SE GETS 110-MILE EPA RATING

"MINI just announced the final specifications for the MINI Cooper SE (aka MINI Electric), valid from March 2020. At the same time, the EPA released its range and energy consumption ratings." says InsideEVs; "We start with the EPA range rating, which is in line with previous estimates. The new specs released is energy consumption - slightly higher than in the case of BMW i3.        2020 MINI Cooper SE Hardtop 2 door EPA rating: range of 110 miles (177 km). BMW i3 is equipped with a 42.2 kWh battery, while the MINI Cooper SE only gets a 32.6 kWh pack. The motor is the same as in i3s."

 

MINI Cooper SE (MINI Electric) specs:

 

EPA range of 110 miles (177 km)

WLTP range of 200-232 km (124-144 miles), WLTP energy consumption of 15.5-18.0 kWh/100 km

32.6 kWh (gross) and 28.9 kWh (net) battery pack (12 modules; 93,2 Ah cells)

0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.3 seconds, 0-60 mph (96.5 km/h) in 6.9 seconds

 

TESLA SHARES PLUMMET

"Tesla shares plummeted by 13.6% to $608 per share on Monday, dropping 6 percentage points more than the S&P for the day, as plunging oil prices and the continuing coronavirus outbreak weighed on investors." according to CNBC: "The oil price battles between Saudi Arabia and Russia could challenge Tesla’s electric vehicle and solar roof sales in markets where it remains more affordable for people to stick with fossil fuels, and where they are not incentivized to switch to renewables. Historically, when crude oil and gas prices decline, electric vehicle sales -- and solar installations -- slow down."

GERMAN CONSTRUCTION COMPANY ARIKON WILL BUILD TESLA GIGAFACTORY

"Tesla may have plans in mind for its newest factory in the German state of Brandenburg near Berlin, but someone has to actually build the thing. That someone will be German construction company Arikon, according to German news source EFahrer. " writes Clean Technica: "When Tesla needed someone to come in and clear the trees from the construction site, Arikon answered the call, using 36 harvesters and 18 forwarders to complete the work ahead of schedule (and before any more court challenges could materialize). In the process, it created 400 nesting sites nearby. Specialists were brought in to move anthills and relocate reptiles. More than three times as many trees will be planted to offset the loss of trees at the construction site."

OXFORD CITY SIGHTSEEING BUSES ARE GOING ELECTRIC

"THE first electric open-top double decker bus has arrived in Oxford – helping to reduce air pollution ahead of the launch of the city's Zero Emission Zone." says local paper Oxford Mail: "The bus is the first of five open-top City Sightseeing Oxford buses, owned by the Oxford Bus Company, that are being retrofitted to electric. The bus company has made an investment of £350,000, including an investment of £80,000 to install the charging equipment for the double decker sightseeing buses, including a battery storage system to harness the energy produced by their solar panels."

EQC BY HOFELE IS BASED ON THE MERCEDES EQC

Hofele are launching a new version of the Mercedes Benz EQC, the EQC by HOFELE and the car will come with a number of upgrades, the car was originally going to be unveiled at the cancelled Geneva Motor Show" reports Geeky GAdgets.com: "The EQC by HOFELE gets a range of styling upgrades over the standard car and it also gets some high end ‘Turbine’ wheels and more. The exterior of this EQC has unique HOFELE styling enhancements, subtle in design and detail, but they elevate the standard EQC to the premium luxury class of EV’s. Finished in the very exclusive Mercedes-Benz “Alubeam” paint, often described as “Liquid Metal”, this very expensive paint finish immediately lets us know that this EV is something very special."

GOODYEAR RECHARGE REGENERATING-TIRE CONCEPT AIMS TO CUT WASTE

"Goodyear has developed a "self-generating" design to extend the life of tires, as well as make them more adaptable to different conditions." writes Green Car Reports: "The Goodyear ReCharge tire concept features a tread that can be replenished using fluid-filled capsules. So instead of replacing the whole tire, only the tread is replaced. In a new as-you-drive approach to the idea of the retread tire, the tread compound is made from "biological material" reinforced with fibers based on spider silk, Goodyear said. The compound is completely biodegradable, according to the company.  Because the tire is airless, drivers won't have to worry about maintaining pressures or fixing punctures, Goodyear noted."

THE APEX AP-0 WILL BE A SURPRISINGLY LIGHTWEIGHT EV SPORTS CAR

"While most electric supercars have giant batteries, big power and heavy weight figures, the Apex AP-0 will top the scales at just 1200kg. It'll be revealed this Friday" says Car Throttle: " It’s quite the achievement to build an electric car that weighs so little, as even the dinky Skoda Citigo e iV weighs a little bit more than that. You can put that skinny figure down to extensive use of carbon fibre in the chassis. There’s not much in the way of power or performance details yet, but it should be able to get close to the Apex AP-1 model revealed last year. That car used a 2.3-litre Ford EcoBoost engine out of the Focus ST and Mustang, and pushed out almost 400bhp for a 0-62mph time of just 2.5 seconds. With all the electric motor’s torque available instantly, we’d think that the electric AP-0 could match this figure. "
