Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Monday 13th January 2020. It’s Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story to save you time.

 

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.

 

Oh my goodness! NEIL E ROBERTS AND LEANNE, FROM SUSSEX EVS, have increased their support! They were already EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS but that’s amazing, thank you.

 

400,000 GERMAN JOBS AT RISK IN SWITCH TO ELECTRIC CARS

"The shift to electric vehicles could cost 410,000 jobs in Germany by 2030, daily Handelsblatt reported on Monday, citing government advisers." acccording to a Reuters report: "In engines and transmissions’ production alone, around 88,000 jobs will be at risk, the newspaper said, citing a report by the National Platform for the Future of Mobility (NPM), an advisory council for the government. Electric cars’ engines are made of fewer parts and require less maintenance than combustion engines, which will result in layoffs, the report was quoted as saying. Vehicle production will be further automated and will not be sufficient to support the current level of jobs, Handelsblatt said, citing NPM’s Chairman Henning Kagermann. In 2018, employment in the car industry in Germany reached 834,000, its highest since 1991."

VW CONFIRMS ID.3 WITH BIGGEST BATTERY SEATS ONLY FOUR

"Thanks to Battery Life, we have learned a few new things about the upcoming Volkswagen ID.3, which will be handed to the first customers in Summer 2020." says INsideEVs: " Volkswagen says that it will manage to deliver cars in the Summer of 2020 and there is no change in the timingThe German manufacturer currently is producing the first batch of ID.3, which is stored on special parking lots and will be tested by the employees. Photos of such facilities were provided by the German EV rental company nextmove in its video. olkswagen has confirmed that the 1ST edition cars will be available only with single-zone climate control (the two-zone climate control will be available later). It was also confirmed that there will be no park-assist feature in the first edition cars (there are parking sensors and automatic emergency braking though). The biggest thing seems to be the news that the ID.3 will be a five-seater only in two battery versions: 45 kWh and 58 kWh, while the 77 kWh battery will be a four-seater. Moreover, the biggest battery pack can not be combined with a panoramic roof. The reason for that seems to be weight - it would be too high with the assumption of the fifth passenger."

 

LARGEST ELECTRIC SCHOOL BUS PROGRAM IN UNITED STATES LAUNCHING IN VIRGINIA

From Cynthia at CleanTechnica: "Dominion Energy has partnered with local Virginia school districts to begin replacing diesel buses with 100% electric school buses in phases. No phase can come too soon, so CleanTechnica wishes all school districts a rapid rollout after the initial 50 launch the program. Children are more sensitive to air pollution than adults, and it hurts them and their studies."

She writes: "The buses can be used as batteries for the grid or for electricity use off the grid as well. Dominion Energy shares, “When not in use, they can be tapped as an energy resource through vehicle-to-grid technology. If energy needs are high or if renewable resources are intermittent, the batteries can provide stability to the grid. During a power outage or emergency, the batteries could serve as mobile power stations.”1,050 electric buses could provide enough energy to power 10,000+ homes."

ASTON MARTIN REPORTEDLY KILLS RAPIDE-E ELECTRIC CAR PROGRAM

"After officially launching the “production version” of its first electric car last year, Aston Martin has now reportedly killed its Rapide-E electric car program." according to electrek: "The British automaker unveiled a prototype of a Rapide converted with an all-electric drivetrain, the “Rapide E,” back in 2015. Two years later, they started working with Williams Advanced Engineering, the tech division of the Williams Formula 1 team, to make the vehicle’s electric powertrain. Last year, we saw one of the first production prototypes of the Rapide E and Aston Martin officially launched the car at the Shanghai Auto show in April 2019. Now almost a year later, the company is reportedly canceling plans to produce the vehicle and it will instead shift the program into an EV research project."

Anyone in Berlin who wants to rent an electric car for a day can now do so at Potsdamer Platz in the “Mall of Berlin” multi-story car park. The company has entered into a partnership with APCOA for this purpose. The Tesla Model 3 is now available in the parking garage for 99 euros and the Model S for 149 euros per day. The price always includes comprehensive insurance policy and three additional drivers. In London, UFODrive will initially start with three locations (Park Lane/Marble Arch, Oxford Circus and Westfield). In order to be able to offer the vehicles at fixed stations here as well, a partnership was entered into with Q-Park, among others. For the Tesla Model 3 a price of 109 pounds per day."

TESLA MODEL 3 PRICE DROP RESULTS IN SURGE OF ORDERS IN CHINA

"The spike in interest from Chinese citizens also comes after Tesla announced an over $7,000 price decrease for its Made-in-China Model 3. The strategy was used by Tesla to undercut popular local automakers and fellow premium segment rivals in China." says Teslarati: "Twitter user and Tesla enthusiast @Ray4Tesla uploaded numerous photos of the Taiguhui Tesla Experience Center in Shanghai this past weekend, showing the location filled with people looking to order their electric vehicles. Reports from local media state that hundreds of Model 3s are being ordered at each store per day and 1,200 are being ordered in China daily."
