Show #904

 

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Friday 9th October. 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.

 

TESLA FREMONT FACTORY STARTS TO PRODUCE ‘REFRESHED’ MODEL 3

"Some spy shots taken at Tesla's Fremont factory in California show a Model 3 that looks refreshed, though we're well aware that CEO Elon Musk says Tesla never refreshes its cars. You can refer to them however you choose, but they're visible changes, nonetheless. The most obvious is the exterior chrome delete that looks much the same as that of the Tesla Model Y." says InsideEVs: "According to Teslarati, the China-made Model 3 is getting the chrome delete, a powered trunk, a new steering wheel, and an updated center console, among other things. Electrek reported that it has received official information that the latter updates, as well as those seen on the Model 3s at Fremont, are planned for U.S. cars"

 

"Tesla has refreshed its Model 3 with some changes to the car's exterior, interior, and possibly elsewhere." says Tesmanian: "We have previously received reports from some North American owners that their Model 3s differ in frunk and headlights. Several updated Model 3s were also delivered to Europe, and made in China Model 3 was said to have received a number of changes. Now, Tesla enthusiast @WholeMarsBlog/Twitter has taken pictures of the refreshed Model 3 in Fremont. The production date of the car is October 8. In the shots, you can clearly see that the frame around the windows and door handles are no longer chrome. The sides of the center console are covered in vegan leather with stitching, instead of the plastic sidewalls that came before. Also spotted was a Model 3 with a steering wheel on the right side, which is likely an indicator of where it will be delivered. Tesla tracker Veda Prime claims that, according to the label, this car will be shipped to Australia or New Zealand. At the bottom of the label, we can see the mark, Japan, but Veda Prime claims that this is not proof that this Model 3 will be sent to Japan."

POLESTAR CEO DEFENDS THE POLESTAR 2’S RECALL AND 233-MILE EPA RATING

"Earlier this week, the EPA released its findings on the Polestar 2’s electric range, certifying it as capable of traveling 233 miles on a charge. That’s about 90 miles less on a charge than the competing Tesla  Model 3." says TechCrunch: "Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath  spoke at TechCrunch Sessions: Mobility shortly after the EPA released its range guidance. In short, he said Polestar knows drivers see real-world results that exceed the EPA’s range. Ingenlath concedes his company is not beating Tesla in range, but encourages side-by-side comparisons in the real world. What looks like a large difference on paper is much less in practice. And he says a longer-range version is on the way."

NIO COMPLETES 1 MILLION BATTERY SWAPS

On May 20th 2018 the first NIO Battery Swap station was installed in Shenzhen. It was back in May that I told you about NIO completing their 500,000th battery swap. And it has taken just 4 months to double that.

 

"As of October 5, 2020, Chinese electric vehicle (EV) maker NIO (NYSE: NIO) has provided more than one million free battery swaps to users, with a maximum of more than 500 battery swaps for a single vehicle, NIO said today. NIO said, based on the cost of 180 yuan per time, the service has a cumulative savings of more than 100 million yuan for users." reports CN Tech Post: "NIO has deployed 155 battery swap stations in China."

AMAZON SHOWS RIVIAN ELECTRIC DELIVERY VANS

"Amazon just showed off the first of its planned custom electric delivery vehicles, which could be delivering packages in the next year. It plans to have 10,000 on the road by 2022, and 100,000 by 2030." says Business Insider: "The vehicle has Alexa voice assistant integration for giving drivers hands-free information about traffic and route updates. Exterior cameras extend around the vehicle, giving the driver a 360-degree view of the area around them."

OIL GIANT TOTAL BUYS LONDON’S LARGEST EV CHARGING NETWORK

"French oil giant Total has bought the London’s largest EV charging network from another French giant, Bolloré Group. Source London, as the charge point network is called, includes more than 1,600 charge points. It was under the Blue Point London portion of Bolloré’s business, which is what Total acquired." writes Clean Technica: "Source London isn’t just the biggest EV charge point network in London — it accounts for more than half of the city’s charge points. Furthermore, it intends to increase the number of charge points in its network by 10× before the end of 2025. That would mean 16,000, which sounds like a lot until you look at Total’s broader plans. The energy company wants to be operating more than 150,000 electric vehicle charge points across Europe by 2025."

CLASSIC MGB ROADSTER IS A MODERN EV

"The battery-powered MGBs are not conversions of vintage cars. Instead, the British firm RBW EV Classic Cars uses freshly minted bodies produced by British Motor Heritage. Underneath is a bespoke chassis with the engine mounted at the rear and the batteries located up front under the hood." says Autoblog; "The lithium-ion battery pack is by Hyperdrive Innovation, and the car is offered with six, seven, or eight batteries. Range is stated as 160 miles with the standard setup and 200 with the larger battery pack. A 3kW charger means a full recharge takes eight hours. The company says it intends to build 30 of the emissions-free roadsters, priced at 90,000 pounds (around $116,000). Besides the MG roadster, RBW plans to offer an electrified MGB GT hardtop as well, along with classic Minis."

SYSCO TESTS DAIMLER ELECTRIC TRUCK

"Sysco is testing an all-electric Daimler Freightliner eCascadia, the food-service company said on Wednesday. Sysco, which runs the second-largest private fleet in the nation, said it is seeking to reduce its carbon footprint." according to UtilityDive: "The electric Class 8 tractor is making local and regional trips out of a San Francisco terminal, and will continue test runs through January, Sysco said. The test runs help Daimler, too, as Sysco said it is sending data and feedback to the OEM to assist in improving the design.  Sysco said it is participating in Daimler's Freightliner Electric Vehicle Council, "a group of customers working with Freightliner to identify and address all potential hurdles to large-scale deployment of commercial battery electric vehicles.""
