Show #908

 

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Friday 16th 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.

 

MODEL 3 UPDATES FOR 2021

The latest Model 3 benefits from a series of ongoing quality and efficiency improvements, the most notable of which is the introduction of the Model Y heat pump HVAC system to the latest Model 3. This, combined with the updated tyres and other improvements to powertrain and software, causes Model 3 to beat its own record as the world’s most efficient mass-production car.

 

Exterior Updates

Trim Updates

  • Satin black side repeaters, door handles and brightwork

 

Wheel/Tire Updates 

  • More efficient tyres across the range
  • Updated 18/19” Sport Wheels
  • Model 3 Performance with new 20” Uberturbine wheels

LATEST MODEL S AND MODEL X UPDATES

Model S and Model X Long Range Plus and Performance benefit from the continued improvement of our vehicles across every aspect of design. The Long Range Plus represents an increase in range through both iterative and transformational changes in core hardware and system architecture. While each of these changes are relatively small in individual impact, our unique ability to introduce them into active manufacturing lines enables significant gains in efficiency, range, and overall value when combined.

CUPRA LEON EHYBRID 2020 REVIEW

"ike the old Golf GTE (and indeed the new one) the Cupra eHybrid uses a 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine paired with an electric motor. The former makes 148bhp and 184lb ft of torque, the latter 113bhp. The other relevant numbers are six (the number of ratios in the dual-clutch transmission), 12.8 (the capacity, in kilowatt hours, of the lithium-ion battery) and 32 (approximate grams per kilometer of CO2, with UK figures yet to be confirmed). Here are two more: 6.7sec to 62mph, and 140mph flat out." writes evo.co.uk: "Cupra quotes 32 miles of all-electric range – a real-world 20-25 miles is more likely. The pseudo five-cylinder growl in Sport and Cupra modes isn’t too bad and ramps up the drama, and outright pace is brisk enough, but the electric and petrol elements always seem to be fighting each other. The electric motor doesn’t quite have the power on its own for that satisfying EV-only thrust of a full-electric car, but rousing the engine takes several beats longer than you’d hope too."

MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE CROSS PHEV AVAILABLE IN 2021

"Mitsubishi has announced the redesigned Eclipse Cross, which will be offered in select markets in Asia, Europe and Australia for the first time as a plug-in hybrid with a modified version of the drive system from the Outlander PHEV." according to electrive: "Sales of the new model are scheduled to start in early 2021 in select markets, including Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Germany. At this point, there are no plans to bring the hybrid version of the vehicle to market in the USA. Mitsubishi does not provide any performance data, but since the Eclipse Cross PHEV basically takes over the drive system from the Outlander PHEV – albeit with modifications to match its own chassis – we at least indicate the performance of the new part-time electric motor."

FIAT CHRYSLER WILL INVEST UP TO $1.5 BILLION TO BUILD EVS IN WINDSOR

 

"Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will invest between $1.35 billion and $1.5 billion in its Windsor assembly plant in Canada to build electric vehicles as part of a tentative deal with Canadian autoworkers, Unifor National President Jerry Dias said on Thursday." reports Autoblog: "The auto union said FCA would invest in a state-of-the-art vehicle platform that will enable the assembly of plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles, with at least one new model in 2025. The announcement comes less than a month after Unifor said Ford would invest $1.46 billion in its Oakville and Windsor plants."

NIO NARROWS GAP WITH TESLA

" Nio, viewed as a bellwether of the Chinese electric-vehicle industry, narrowed the gap with US carmaker Tesla, mainland China’s highest selling electric-car marque, over the last three months." according to the South China MOrning Post: "The company, started by William Li Bin in 2014, delivered 3,226 of its ES6 sport-utility vehicles (SUVs) in September, a year-on-year increase of 87 per cent, according to the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA). In August, its sales rose 58 per cent, with the company selling 2,840 ES6s. Tesla, on the other hand, led the sector by quite a distance last month, by a margin of 8,103, having delivered 11,329 of the Model 3 cars built at its Shanghai-based Gigafactory 3. In June, however, the gap between Tesla and Nio was wider"

EVS TO RETURN POWER TO GRID WITH ABB INTELLIGENT CHARGING

As part of a contract with France’s DREEV, a joint venture between Électricité de France (EDF) and Nuvve, which specializes in intelligent charging for EVs, ABB will supply its brand-new 11 kW bi-directional charging technology, specially designed for V2G.

 

ABB’s solution integrated with DREEV software technology will enable EV drivers to export surplus power back to the grid. With potential to generate up to 20€/EV/month, V2G thereby reduces the total cost of ownership and further boosts the adoption of EVs. Bi-directional chargers also help smooth the flow of uneven generation of electricity from renewable sources such as solar and wind.

Under the partnership, ABB will supply V2G bi-directional kiosks in France, followed by installations in the United Kingdom, Italy, Belgium and Germany.

 

The light and compact 11 kW charger delivers a quick and flexible charge and is fully compatible with current and future EVs. It meets the most stringent grid compliance requirements and is designed to be the global benchmark for V2G charging.
