Der ID.Buzz war der Star der diesjährigen IAA Transportation. Christian Buhlmann nimmt uns auf einen ersten kurzen Roadtrip rund um das Messegelände mit. Als Pressesprecher von Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge kennt er den neuen, elektrischen Bulli bestens und erzählt uns warum der ID.Buzz bereits jetzt so viele Menschen rund um den Globus begeistert hat.
According to the International Energy Agency, road transportation accounts for 16% of global emissions. Electric vehicles are the key technology to decarbonize this. The EIA estimates that EVs will account for 13% of new cars sold in 2022. Many countries are setting goals to eliminate combustion engine cars to reach Net Zero emissions by 2050. But there are a lot of challenges to iron out before EVs achieve critical mass. For example, one area of interest for this week's podcast guests is the materials used to manufacture EV power modules. In this episode, Françoise von Trapp talks with Indium's Pei Lim and Dean Payne about these challenges, particularly why pressure silver sintering die to attach is becoming a popular approach. You'll learn how eMobility has impacted manufacturing power modules and the origin of silver sintering in these devices. You'll learn about the materials currently used in sintering, and why silver is a better choice for electric vehicles. Lastly, you'll learn about Indium's pressure sinter offering and its benefits. Learn more about pressure silver sintering here.

From the Oxfordshire, UK town where he grew up, Chris Sachno set out to explore the world, first earning his MBA from the Fuqua School of Business at North Carolina's Duke University, then making his way to Japan, originally intending to learn Japanese. Not only did he become fluent in the language, he also caught the technology bug and went on to help develop tech that has been used in products like the BlackBerry, the iPhone, and the Apple Watch. But it's not just mobile devices that Chris was interested in, and he was drawn to cars - this past June he joined Karma Automotive and has helped shape the technological profile of their vehicles.In this episode, Chris has a very long-distance chat with Derek D about how the current electric vehicle revolution is kind of a comeback, why the current era is ideal for experimentation in EV design, and the mind-boggling innovations that may come to electric cars in a mere 10 years or so. Plus, he talks about why speed, safety, and range are the top areas for EV improvement, how it felt the first time he drove Karma's flagship vehicle and the instant torque kicked in, and more.Chris Sachno | Karma AutomotiveEpisode Highlights:The famous Henry Ford quote Chris keeps back of mind when considering designWhat the original driving force for EVs was, and why environmental concerns and beyond still make it a factorThe reasons that adoption leads to adaptation for any new technology.Why Chris is passionate about a great experience for both drivers and passengers“If you're using your phone and an application crashes - okay, you start it up again. You don't want that to happen when you're doing 75 MPH on the highway.” — Chris Sachno|| Dealer News Today is a DCG Media production

In this episode, EY Global Advanced Manufacturing and Mobility analysts Gaurav Batra and Anuj Chandna share insights from the latest EY Electric Vehicle Country Readiness Index. The EY EV Country Readiness Index assessed each country's capabilities and progress concerning the transition to an electric vehicle (EV) future. These 14 countries were then ranked based on how they scored in the supply, demand and regulatory parameters. China's high number of lithium gigafactories, reliable access to raw materials and a developed public charging infrastructure were some of the factors for ranking first in the Index. Interestingly, Norway ranked second. Its regulatory environment — which saw Norway having the highest EV penetration, with 72% of the cars sold in 2021 being EVs — was key for its high ranking. The US ranked seventh and it is only now beginning to see a shift toward electrification with the newly proposed government regulatory actions. For countries to support this EV transition, governments will need to promote policies that increase investor confidence and prepare for long-term success. Continued R&D support for battery technology and production will be critical, along with securing access to raw materials. In a growing and evolving EV ecosystem, consistency will be fundamental. Key takeaways: China ranked first in the EY EV Country Readiness Index. China is likely to have capacity to produce nearly 1,000 GWh of lithium batteries by 2025 —more than twice the capacity of Europe by that time. Norway will discontinue the sale of new internal combustion engine (ICE) cars by 2025 — which is 10 years ahead of the EU target. The regulatory policies set up over the years by the leading countries in the Index have already established a market with rising EV demand and supply in those regions.

On today's episode, Jo gives a brief follow-up on the newly passed Inflation Reduction Act. He digs deeper into how the tax credits have been written, who will (or won't) be able to take advantage of them, and what this means for the industry as a whole. He also touches on the specific consequences for automotive companies sourcing parts and manufacturing from overseas, and he unpacks how this could affect companies with fleets of large commercial vehicles.-----FOLLOW:InstagramTwitterFacebookWebsiteATTEND ELECTRIFY EXPO:New York (Aug 27-28)Miami (Oct 8-9)Austin (Nov 11-13)PRODUCED BY:Alex Lagos / Lagos Creative
On today's episode, Jo and Matt start with a deep dive into the Inflation Reduction Act by discussing what it really means, how we can expect it to change the EV industry, and who the bill will help/hurt. Next, they tackle the issue of misinformation and lack of resources when it comes to educating consumers on the truth of the EV lifestyle (and the obvious need for a reliable source of information). Finally, we wrap with some talk about exactly how much money is still being spent each year to subsidize fossil fuels vs battery developments...and it's truly astonishing.-----FOLLOW:InstagramTwitterFacebookWebsiteATTEND ELECTRIFY EXPO:New York (Aug 27-28)Miami (Oct 8-9)Austin (Nov 11-13)PRODUCED BY:Alex Lagos / Lagos Creative
Jason Gies knows that you don't want your new electric medium-duty truck to run out of juice just because your route took it out of range distance. So, he's talking to truck stop operators, shippers, regulators, policy makers, and people at the local power company to help architect a sustainable charging infrastructure - one that makes 600-kilowatt battery charging just as easy as plugging in that Chevy Volt. In this episode, RoadSigns' Mike Freeze gets the buzzy Gies, Navistar's VP of E-Mobility, to spill the tea on everything from how fleets are charging now to how far policy makers are wiling to go to up the public charging game. Tune in, and you'll never go out of range again.

"It takes work and it takes commitment to really screen in versus screen out....We are approaching this in many ways...We don't simply need an electrical engineer or a mechanical engineer, or a person with a computer science degree. What are the skills that we're looking for? What are the interests that we need in the talent that's coming in? And we're helping the leaders in the organization write job descriptions in a different way than we have written them before." Telva McGruder on Electric Ladies Podcast General Motors announced it would phase out traditional internal combustion engine vehicles and only focus on electric vehicles by 2035. But how? What does that mean for the plants? For talent and recruiting? Listen to Electric Ladies Podcast host Joan Michelson's engaging and fascinating conversation with Telva McGruder, Chief Diversity Officer of General Motors, who has spent 28 years at GM, starting as an engineer. You'll hear: How their recruiting has changed for the new auto sector focus on alternative fuel vehicles. How GM is converting their 100+ year old manufacturing system for these new vehicles. How GM quickly pivoted some of their plants to manufacture ventilators during the height of the pandemic. The differences between male-dominated leadership at GM and female-dominated leadership there. Plus, insightful career advice, especially for women... "Mid-career women are great at getting results....But if we say making a difference is making a difference for the people around you and making a big difference for the business you're in. And, and maybe for the communities that you move in, that takes practice, and it takes really sitting back and looking at how should I behave every single day, so that I'm making a difference for people."

The climate news about China seems to be consistently contradictory. On the one hand, we hear how China is responsible for high levels of emissions, while on the other we hear how China is leaping ahead in its deployments of renewables. Where does the truth lie?I invited Daniel Berger of EAC who has been based in China for the last 20 years to come on the podcast to give his perspective.We had a fascinating conversation discussing all aspects of climate as it pertains to China, everything from its famous five-year plans through to what people on the ground think.I learned loads.
