Show #933

 

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Thursday 19th November. 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.

 

DS AUTOMOBILES TO GO ELECTRIC BY 2025

"Following the UK Government announcement to bring forward the end date on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars to 2030, DS Automobiles said Wednesday it will meet the new guidelines five years ahead of time. By 2025, DS Automobiles will exclusively offer plug-in hybrid electric and fully electric vehicles to its customers. DS Automobiles has competed in the all-electric Formula E series since the championship started in 2014. The pioneering work from Formula E is used to advance the next-generation of DS Automobiles electric and plug-in vehicles, including the all-new DS 3 CROSSBACK E-TENSE, DS 7 CROSSBACK E-TENSE 4×4 and upcoming DS 9, the brand’s first premium saloon, embodying French luxury savoir-faire."

 

Of course Volvo were one of the first major existing brands to make this announcement, DS certainly won't be the last. For those who want to have an electric future, it's a matter of when not if. And these kind of things provide clarity for customer, staff, dealers to ensure they get trained.

VW'S ELECTRIC ESTATE / WAGON IS GO

VW said today ""At the Volkswagen’s brand plant in Emden, the transformation is also progressing rapidly: while the construction work for the switch to electric mobility is fully on track, the second electric model for the site has now been defined. In addition to the ID.4, the four-door all-electric Volkswagen Aero is scheduled to be manufactured there from 2023.""

 

And adding to that, Ralf Brandstätter, Chief Executive Officer Volkswagen Passenger Cars wrote on Linkedin:

 

"Great news! Under the project name "Aero B" our plant in Emden gets its second E-model. The Aero B is our interpretation of sustainable premium. It scores in all dimensions of electrical performance: thanks to our continuously improved MEB, it can be charged super-fast and offers a bit more of everything: more space, more range, more acceleration and more top speed. As an elegant Shooting Brake, it will be the first electric variant on the market. It impresses with high-quality interiors and a lot of space: classy and spacious like a Phaeton, along with huge trunk volume. And with 700km a real range hero. Its aerodynamic design ensures a top cw value and an extremely attractive high-tech appearance. A feast for the senses – and for all tech and design fans! A new, powerful e-model that will attract a lot of attention around the world. Sustainable, Premium, Great - Made in Emden! From 2023 it rolls off the production line. In doing so, we are making a clear commitment to the importance of the location and to future-proof employment."

 

That's the production version of the VW Space Vizzion. The 700km range is 435 miles. Possibly late ~375 in the EPA test cycle. The Neo eventually became the ID.3, the Crozz the ID.4 so this could be the ID.5. Possibly as the name for the sedan version, with with Aero estate version called ID.5X or ID.5S.

 

The longer version of the MEB platform can take up to 16 modules of 7kW cells, so that's in theory a max size of 112kWh.

 

Back in concept for we were told the specs they were aiming for:

 

  • range of 590 km (367 miles) WLTP or 300 miles (483 km) EPA
  • 82 kWh battery (77 kWh usable)
  • 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds (5.0 seconds to 60 mph)
  • all-wheel drive (there will be also rear-wheel-drive option)
  • system output of up to 250 kW (with 205 kW rear motor and 75 kW front motor)
  • based on MEB platform
  • drag coefficient of 0.24

 

"Volkswagen Group's broader plan is to introduce around 70 all-electric models by 2030 and 20 are already in production. The number of hybrids (all types) will almost double to 60." says InsideEVs: "Cumulative sales of BEVs will reach 26 million by 2030, including 19 million based on the MEB platform. Most of the rest will be based on the PPE platform developed by Audi and Porsche. Sales of hybrids within those 10 years will reach 7 million."

NEW EPA RANGE/EFFICIENCY RATINGS FOR 2021 TESLA MODEL S PERFORMANCE

"The top of the line, Performance version of the new 2021 Tesla Model S finally received an official range and efficiency ratings on EPA's website. The numbers are exactly as estimated by Tesla in October. The car on 19" wheels has a range of 387 miles (623 km), which is 39 miles (63 km) or 11.2% more than previously - 348 miles (560 km). The flashy 21" wheels affect the range noticeably, by 13.7%, so the range is 334 miles (537 km)." says INsideEVs: "The numbers for the Long Range Plus version, which can go up to 402 miles (647 km), were announced in June.!

 

A reminder that Panasonic inceased the energy density of the 18650 cells recently. Also Tesla changed tyre supplier and made iterative efficiency gains.

 

VOLKSWAGEN ID.3 SHINES IN THE NETHERLANDS

"October saw the Dutch plugin electric vehicle (PEV) market return to the fast lane, jumping 228% year over year (YoY) to 9,116 units, the market’s best score ever if we exclude December months (which are prone to incentive-derived year-end rushes)." says CleanTechnica: "PEV market share jumped to 29% — 23% full electrics (BEV) — pulling the 2020 plugin share to 17% (13% BEV), and this time BEVs were the main driver of growth.  a great result from the Volkswagen ID.3, which had 2,789 deliveries last month. That put it in #1 in the overall market, leaving the #2 Kia Niro some 1,600 units behind."

BMW MOVES ENGINE PRODUCTION OUT OF GERMANY, MAKES ROOM FOR EVS

" BMW on Wednesday said it will retool its German factories to build electric cars and components and shift manufacturing of combustion engines to plants in Austria and England as part of a broader shift toward low-emission cars" according to Autoblog; "BMW's Munich plant, which currently makes four-, six-, eight- and 12-cylinder combustion engines, will be retooled with a 400 million euro investment. The BMW i4 electric car will be built in Munich, a fully electric version of the 5-series and 7-series and the recently revealed iX (shown above) will be made in Dingolfing and an electric X1 will be made in Regensburg. BMW's said the number of staff at its Dingolfing factory making electric car powertrains, will double, to 2,000 workers."

GERMANY COMMITS ADDITIONAL €3 BLN TO EASE GREEN MOBILITY TRANSITION

"The German government will spend an additional three billion euros to help the car industry manage a smooth transition to clean mobility and weather the coronavirus crisis. Following a summit between car industry representatives, representatives from federal states and chancellor Angela Merkel, the government said it will spend one billion euros to extend the premium for buyers of electric vehicles until the end of 2025; one billion euros to support the exchange of old trucks with models equipped with a more modern combustion engine; and one billion euros for a "future car industry fund" to support the long-term transition in the industry, which is central to the German economy." write Clean Energy Wire: "The car buyers' premium of up to 9,000 euros per electric car was originally planned to end at the end of next year.  The share of pure electric cars in new car registrations reached 8.4 percent in October"

 

 

CA RESIDENTS WILL GET THE $1500 CLEAN FUEL REWARD

"The California Air Resources Board (CARB) and state utilities have partnered to offer car buyers a $1,500 point-of-sale rebate for electric cars or plug-in hybrids. Unlike other purchase incentives, the California Clean Fuel Reward (CCFR) is taken directly off the purchase price or lease of a new vehicle. Consumers will get that price reduction starting November 17, albeit only at participating dealerships." says Green Car Reports: "The CCFR is funded by California utilities, using proceeds from the sale of emissions credits under the state's Low Carbon Fuel Standard Program. The credits are awarded to utilities that adopt low-carbon methods of energy production."
