Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Tuesday 7th April 2020. It’s Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to.

 

Welcome to PHILIP TRAUTMAN as a new PRODUCER of this here podcast.

 

WHY DID AUDI REGISTER A1 ETRON

Matthias Schmidt

@auto_schmidt

 

#Audi registered a small number of pure-electric A1 BEV models in March, suggesting an A1 badged BEV is likely on the way, or alternatively Audi are using it as a test mule for the #MEB based model soon to roll off @vwsachsen_de 's Zwickau line.

 

In 2010 Audi did make the A1 e-tron, it was a protoype version of the A1 which had an electric motor driving the front wheels but a very small 12kWh battery pack. In the boot floor, where you would find the the BMW i3 range extender engine, Audi put a 245cc Wankel engine to generate electricity. Very similar to the current Nissan e-power cars. =

 

In Feb of this year, Auto Express said: "Audi ready to expand its e-tron portfolio with a new all-electric supermini model, which will sit on the VW Group’s MEB platform. Audi is planning a huge expansion of its e-tron electric range over the next five years – and now a senior official at the firm has admitted to Auto Express that this wider range will stretch to a small car based on the VW Group’s entry-level EV platform. Known as MEB Entry, the architecture was revealed at the VW Group annual conference last spring. It’s designed to support vehicles of around four metres in length, about the same as a Polo or an Audi A1."

 

But that was due to be 2022.

 

MAZDA MX-30 WITH ROTARY ENGINE OFFICIALLY UNDER CONSIDERATION

"The Mazda MX-30 electric crossover will be available in Europe in 2021, and it will possibly get a rotary engine as a range extender, according to a new announcement from the automaker." reports Motor1: "The version of the MX-30 coming at launch has an electric motor making 143 horsepower (106 kilowatts) and uses a relatively small 35.5-kilowatt-hour battery. This setup offers an estimated range of just 130 miles (209 kilometers). So far, there are no plans to bring the crossover EV to the United States, but it's hard to imagine the vehicle being competitive in the market with such a low range."

TESLA MODEL 3 = 6TH BEST SELLING CAR IN USA

"The Tesla Model 3 isn’t done with the headlines, despite the Model Y’s review-grabbing arrival and the coronavirus pandemic we’re dealing with at the moment. Tesla has climbed the rankings of the top selling cars in the USA and placed the Model 3 on the 6th rung*." reports CleanTechnica: "That’s up from 9th in 2019 as a whole, up from 13th in the 1st quarter of 2019, and up from 7th in the 4th quarter of 2019."

 

Note: This is based on official figures from other automakers but an estimate for the Model 3. Tesla only reports global sales, without splitting them out by country or region, and has also started combining Model 3 and Model Y sales/deliveries. That said, CleanTechnica’s estimates are based on a variety of sources and data points.

 

Camry, Corolla, Civic, Altima, Accord and Tesla Model 3.

 

As for top vehicles, Ford F-Series, Silverado, Ram Pickup.

UK EV REGISTRATIONS BREAK RECORDS

“Registrations of electric vehicles have broken almost all records in March 2020" says Green Car Reports: "A combined figure of more than 18,500 is almost 6,000 units more than the previous record from September 2019. Pure-EVs reached their highest ever total, with almost 11,700 registered during the month. The previous record was a little over 7,700, also in September 2019. As might be expected with such a large increase on EV units registered, market share for pure-electric models hit a new record too."

VW SAYS THE COMBUSTION ENGINE IS FAR FROM DEAD

"While some have rushed to announce the demise of the ICE is coming, the peeps from Wolfsburg don’t see it that way. In an interview with Autocar, technical chief Matthias Rabe explained why VW argues the traditional engine “will have a longer future than some people predict.” While synthetic fuels are still far from being massively produced for the automotive industry, he believes it makes sense to invest in e-fuels since EVs still have limitations in terms of range while their batteries are still large and heavy." according to Motor1: "Even though EVs will be the number one priority from now on, investments in combustion engines are still planned to update the vast array of gasoline and diesel powertrain VW sell across its many brands."

KIA XCEED PHEV GOES ON SALE IN THE UK

The addition of Plug-in Hybrid variants to the Kia XCeed marks the next step in Kia Motors’ vehicle electrification strategy. Now on sale in UK showrooms, the Kia XCeed PHEV represents the first time Kia has brought electrified powertrains to the Ceed family.

The 8.9kWh battery pack is located alongside the 37-litre fuel tank beneath the rear bench, unlike many other plug-in hybrid vehicles, in which the battery pack takes up valuable cargo space. And a 44.5kW electric motor, The XCeed PHEV ‘3’ model is capable of travelling up to 36.6 miles on zero-emissions electric power, while the ‘First Edtion’ can travel up to 33.5 miles

 

LONG RANGE RWD MODEL 3 OWNERS GET AUTOPILOT

"Elon Musk has stated that owners of the now-discontinued Model 3 Long Range Rear-Wheel Drive configuration will have the opportunity to purchase the company’s basic Autopilot in the future at a discounted price." says Teslarati: "Currently, owners of the Model 3 who purchased their vehicle before April 2019 did not have basic Autopilot included with the car. Owners of early build Model 3s were required to purchase basic Autopilot functions for $3,000. Tesla discontinued the production of the LR RWD Model 3 in June 2019. The LR RWD variant of the Model 3 offered a 325-mile EPA-estimated range rating along with a 4.9-second 0-60 MPH speed, just half a second slower than its sibling, the LR AWD variant. The car was a good option for those who wanted a vehicle that had a lot of range but did not need the all-wheel-drive capability."
