Show #1480 Well…Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily, your trusted source of EV information. It's Friday 27th May, my last day of hosting the show while Martyn's on holidays. I'm Blake Boland, and I've gone through every EV story today so that you don't have to! Ford starts customer deliveries of the F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck - Ford announced that it started production of the electric pickup truck last month, and they have since made their way to dealerships across the US. Some were delivered to fleet customers, but now we learned that the automaker started deliveries to its retail customers as well. - Ford quickly accumulated 200,000 reservations for the electric pickup and realized that the demand was much higher than anticipated. The company quickly ramped up its production and is now planning for an annual production rate of 150,000 units by the end of next year. This year, production is expected to be limited to about 40,000 units. - While this is not much compared to overall F-150 production, it is good to jump-start electric pickup trucks in the US. Next year, the Silverado Electric, Tesla Cybertruck, and more are expected to contribute to the electric pickup truck revolution in the US Original Source : Ford starts customer deliveries of the F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck - Electrek Tesla delivers Megapacks to new Bitcoin mining facility - Tesla has delivered four Megapacks to a giant new Bitcoin mining facility in Texas that is going to be the first to be powered by the automaker's solar and batteries. - Last month, the project was announced as a partnership between Tesla, Blockstream, and Jack Dorsey's Blocks (formerly Square). - The idea is to build a new 30 Petahashes per second open-source Bitcoin mining facility powered by a 3.8 MW solar farm and 12 MWh Megapack system provided by Tesla. - Tesla's involvement in the project is also interesting within the context of the company adopting the cryptocurrency in its own business. - Early in 2021, Tesla invested $1.5 billion in Bitcoin. Shortly after, the automaker started accepting the cryptocurrency as payment on new vehicles. Original Source : Tesla delivers Megapacks to new Bitcoin mining facility - Electrek SAIC-GM-Wuling to assemble its mini EVs in Indonesia - SAIC-GM-Wuling is exporting its popular mini electric vehicles, but unlike other car companies that export vehicles directly, the company is shipping parts overseas and assembling the vehicles. - On May 24, SAIC-GM-Wuling exported its first batch of new energy vehicle (NEV) parts overseas on a rail liner, - SAIC-GM-Wuling is aiming for annual sales of 1 million NEVs by 2023, it said in early March. - As of April, total sales of SAIC-GM-Wuling's GSEV models topped 850,000 units, the company said today. Original Source : SAIC-GM-Wuling to assemble its mini EVs in Indonesia - CnEVPost Electric bike charging stations installed on the West Coast Electric Highway - The West Coast Electric Highway in the US, which sees electric car charging stations dotting the route from the Canadian border in the north to the Mexican border in the south, is getting a new type of EV charging station as well. Now you'll be able to charge up your electric bike along the way too, at least in the Oregon section. - That's because the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) has announced that it has taken the initiative to outfit all 44 of the electric car charting stations along the Electric Highway in its states with extra 110V plugs. Original Source : Electric bike charging stations installed along West Coast Electric Highway (electrek.co) NIO to boost presence in Norway with new NIO Houses and swap stations - NIO's second NIO House in Norway is expected to open in the third quarter, one year after the opening of NIO's first showroom in the country. - "NIO is a premium car brand and will create a premium user experience. We are pleased to have found premises that reflect this in Strandgata 15 and are convinced that the users will be rejuvenated," says Marius Hayler, CEO of NIO Norway. - NIO also plans to open two additional showrooms in Norway in the fourth quarter. - In addition to additional NIO Houses in Norway, NIO will also build two new battery swap stations in Bergen and a battery swap station in Vestby, according to the Norwegian version of the NIO app. - NIO announced plans last year to build battery swap stations in five Norwegian cities, with the goal of having 20 facilities in Norway by the end of 2022.

Part 1. The Beginning. In 1996, after years of “can't be done” grumbling from the major automakers, Solectria announced the development of the sporty Sunrise electric car under the leadership of CEO James Worden, calculating that the price could be as low as $20,000 if they got 20,000 orders. Ahead of his time in every way, James inspired an EV revolution, laying the foundation for innovation in not one but two industries, and we get to his contribution to the solar industry in Part 2 of the conversation. For years, I've admired James and Solectria from afar, installing their solar inverters on some of my favorite projects over a decade ago. Today, you'll get to hear a two-part conversation from our in-person interview in Boston earlier this year. We get a rare glimpse into Worden's early life, the proving ground of his engineering mettle at MIT, his entrepreneurial story and what ultimately became his life's obsession, Solectria Corporation. There's so much we unpack today, so settle in for a deep dive with the one and only James Worden. If you want to connect with James, you'll find links to his contact info (linked, twitter, etc) in the https://mysuncast.com/suncast-episodes/ (show notes) over on the blog, along with many of the links I uncovered (articles, even a Science Friday audio clip) doing research for this interview. SunCast is presented by https://www.mysuncast.com/sungrow (Sungrow), the world's most bankable inverter brand. (yes, not lost on us that we are sponsored by an inverter company and telling the story of another inverter company - but that's why we love Sungrow, they're very secure in their position and love seeing others win too!)

Show #1479…(headline story). Stick around and we'll get you up to speed! Well…Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily, your trusted source of EV information. It's Thursday 26th May, my penultimate day of hosting the show. I'm Blake Boland, and I've gone through every EV story today so that you don't have to! Watch Lucid Air Set New Hypermiling Record Of 687 Miles - The Lucid Air Dream Edition Range remains the world's longest-range production car, with an EPA rating of 520 miles (836 kilometers). - Tom Moloughney got remarkably close to that in the real world by covering 500 miles in the Lucid Air in InsideEVs' 70 mph range test. But how far can the electric luxury sedan go if the driver's only concern is range? - The plan was to drive the car at a constant 27 mph (43 km/h), switching drivers roughly every three hours. Any time the Lucid Air needed to stop or turn around, the driver would switch into neutral and coast before accelerating slowly back to 27 mph. - However, the vehicle did not manage to break the 700-mile threshold, with the 118-kWh battery running completely out of juice after 687.4 miles (1,106.2 kilometers). That was still good enough to qualify as a world record for the longest range achieved by production electric vehicle on public roads, but still a long way from the 999-mile Guinness World Record that includes prototypes on private tracks. Original Source : Watch Lucid Air Set New Hypermiling Record Of 687 Miles (insideevs.com) Harley-Davidson selling out its newest electric motorcycle in 18 minutes - When Harley-Davidson first unveiled its original LiveWire electric motorcycle and began taking orders nearly four years ago, the industry was largely in consensus about the bike itself. It scored impressive marks and high acclaim for performance and style, but its sales suffered due to the original lofty price of nearly $30,000 (though the price did drop to $22,000 after entering the LiveWire sub-brand). And so it's no surprise that ever since the original launch, significant hype has been building for Harley-Davidson's next lower-cost electric motorcycle. Original Source : Harley-Davidson LiveWire Del Mar electric motorcycle sold out in 18 mins (electrek.co) CATL partners with European electric bus maker Solaris on battery supply - Contemporary Amperex Technology Co Ltd (CATL, SHE: 300750) recently entered into a partnership with European electric bus maker Solaris to help drive the transition to electric urban mobility in Europe, the largest Chinese power battery maker announced today. - CATL will provide Solaris' buses with lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries using CTP (cell to pack) technology to drive the electrification of buses, the company said. - Thanks to the long life and high thermal stability of CATL's LFP system, Solaris' electric buses will demonstrate significant advantages in safety and temperature resilience, CATL said. - Solaris, based in Poland, is one of Europe's leading bus and trolleybus manufacturers, having built more than 22,000 vehicles in the past 25 years. Original Source : CATL partners with European electric bus maker Solaris on battery supply - CnEVPost ADS-TEC Energy Extends Battery-Buffered Ultra-Fast EV Charging - ADS-TEC Energy plc is extending its battery-buffered, ultra-fast EV charging portfolio in Europe, despite global supply chain and other market challenges, with the addition of ChargePost later this year. Unlike the currently-available, battery-buffered ChargeBox, which consists of a separate battery-booster module and two charging dispensers, the ChargePost consolidates battery-buffering and dispensers into a single "all-in-one" system with a large display that provides revenue-generating advertising opportunities.

Original Source : Battery startup Sparkz, United Mine Workers of America announce labor-management agreement for W Va Gigafactory - Green Car Congress Over 300 battery gigafactories in the global pipeline - As EV demand steadily grows, automakers and their suppliers are wisely hustling to increase battery production capacity—preferably close to their auto plants and markets. Benchmark Mineral Intelligence reports that there are currently over 300 battery gigafactories in the construction or planning stages around the world. - This represents some 6,388 GWh worth of battery capacity, a 68% increase compared to the figure a year ago. Original Source : Charged EVs | Over 300 battery gigafactories in the global pipeline - Charged EVs Micro presents variants for the compact Microlino - ‘'In total, however, the Microlino will be available in four variants, all of which will be powered by an electric motor with an output of 12.5 kW. The top speed of the electric two-seater is 90 km/h. In addition, the Microlino will be available with three battery sizes (6, 10.5 or 14 kWh), which should enable ranges of 91, 177 and 230 kilometres respectively.

Consumer energy data is vital to the energy transition, especially distributed energy resources (DERs). For example, a rooftop solar company needs consumer energy data to analyze bill savings from a potential solar installation. An electric vehicle (EV) charging company needs it to offer a customer special rates on EV charging. But that data has long been incredibly difficult to access – available only in PDFs and hard-to-access utility databases – often coming in very different formats and standards. And yet companies are trying to overcome these challenges by bringing that data into easy-to-use interfaces. Arcadia is one such company. Earlier this month it raised $200 million, an investment that valued the company at $1.5 billion. Yesterday, Arcadia purchased commercial energy-data provider Urjanet. In this episode, Shayle talks to Arcadia CEO Kiran Bhatraju about how to build a business around consumer energy data and how that data could become a goldmine for DER providers. A few important disclosures: Shayle's firm Energy Impact Partners (EIP) is an investor in Arcadia. EIP led the company's Series A and has invested in every round since. Arcadia is a sponsor of this podcast. Kiran is also a friend of Shayle's, and Shayle is an Arcadia customer. Shayle and Kiran discuss key questions about consumer data, such as: What are the most valuable data points? Kiran and Shayle talk about grid carbon intensity, on-time bill payments and more. What level of fidelity do we need from the data? Do we need precise real-time data to prove savings to customers and support higher DER sales, or will high-level estimates suffice? Do we need an ever-expanding pool of smart devices, or can we unlock most of the value with a few key devices, such as a hot water heater, heat pump and EV charger? How do you develop a moat that protects you from competitors in the consumer data space? What could the future of the DER market look like? Kiran argues that DER providers will shift from selling widgets to selling platforms and packages as whole-home managers. Plus, Shayle reveals the smartest business idea that he ever turned into reality. Catalyst is supported by Advanced Energy Economy. AEE is on the front lines of transforming policy that accelerates the move to 100 percent clean energy and electrified transportation in America.

I'm taking more of your questions and comments about the market (and one about the NBA). A listener comments on our major deal with TCG World to buy land in the metaverse. I explain why this will be a game-changer for our business—and how accredited investors can get a stake alongside us. Next, I take a question on whether EV maker Rivian Automotive's stock is worth looking at… and the same listener wants to know who I like for the NBA playoffs. Finally, I explain why I'm bullish on markets despite China's COVID lockdowns… and why it's different from the lockdowns of March 2020. In this episode: Be careful as earnings season comes to an end [1:00] We've officially launched our metaverse deal [5:30] Is Rivian a buy?

Show #1478 Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily, your trusted source of EV information. It's Wednesday 25th May, and in case you missed it, Martyn is off on his holidays. I'm Blake Boland, and I've gone through every EV story today so that you don't have to! First up, let's look at our headline story for the day. Modified Nissan Ariya To Drive From North To South Pole In 2023 - British adventurer and Guinness World Record holder Chris Ramsey will become the first person in automotive history to drive Pole to Pole in an all electric vehicle in a bid to raise awareness of the climate crisis and the role that electric cars can play in reducing our carbon footprint. - This will be the first time that any vehicle has driven from the Magnetic North Pole to the South Pole, and Ramsey believes it is the ideal way to highlight just what electric vehicles are capable of – even in the most extreme climates. - After nearly four years of planning, the Pole to Pole Expedition is scheduled to start in March 2023, covering 17,000 miles across 14 countries as the team make their way from the Magnetic North to the finish line at the South Pole. - In preparation for the brutal Arctic and Antarctic conditions, Ramsey's expedition Nissan Ariya e-4ORCE will be modified and equipped by Arctic Trucks, a renowned specialist in polar vehicles. They will also provide logistical support and expertise to help plan a safe and accessible route through the most remote and hostile environments on Earth. Original Source : The Expedition – Pole to Pole EV 2022 report rates the US on EV readiness - The transportation sector accounts for approximately 30% of carbon dioxide emissions in the US alone. As the United States and the rest of the world for that matter, continue to lean into the paradigm shift of BEV transportation, more and more countries, states, and their consumers must prepare. A new 2022 report from LeasePlan USA has measured a number of data factors and scored an EV readiness index for all of the US. - The index was based upon five factors: Favorable state legislation and incentives Percentage of EVs on the road Charger to vehicle ratio Charger availability Climate suitability for EVs Original Source : 2022 report rates the US on EV readiness: How prepared is your state? - Electrek Polestar invests in extreme fast charging battery company StoreDot -Polestar makes first financial investment in another company; becomes shareholder in Israel-based extreme fast charging pioneer StoreDot - StoreDot is pioneering the development of silicon-dominant extreme fast charging batteries for electric vehicles. The Israel-based company aims to produce batteries for EVs capable of charging up to 160 km of range in just five minutes, by 2024. - As part of the strategic deal, Polestar is collaborating with StoreDot to explore adapting and applying their technology to proof-of-concept Polestar cars. Test cases already being explored include customising StoreDot's cell technology for Polestar cars, to enable faster charging and improved circularity. - The new funding comes as part of StoreDot's Series D investment round. Polestar is joining an impressive list of the company's global investors and partners, including Daimler, BP, VinFast, Volvo, Ola Electric, Samsung, TDK and EVE Energy. Original Source : Polestar invests in extreme fast charging battery company StoreDot (electriccarsreport.com) Vancouver Requires Gas Stations & Parking Lots Without EV Chargers To Pay $10,000 Per Year - The Vancouver city council has approved a new $10,000 annual fee for gas stations and commercial parking lots that don't install EV chargers by January 2025. - In order to comply with the new rule, gas stations will have to install at least one DC fast charger with a minimum charging speed of 50kW. Parking lots will need to install four Level 2 chargers in order to meet the guidelines. Lots with fewer than 60 parking spaces will be exempt from the new fees. - In a report to the city council, the city staff said, “There would be an incentive to invest in EV charging to avoid the higher annual license fees.” That report estimated it would take gas station and parking lot owners about 8 years to recoup their investment in EV charging equipment. Business owners cited lack of space, lack of available electricity supply, and limited demand for EV chargers as concerns. - According to a city staff report supporting the initiative, it will cost about $135,000 for a gas station to install a DC fast charger. The report also estimates it will cost an average of $100,000 to install four Level 2 EV chargers. Once they are in compliance, the normal yearly business license fee will remain at $163 for parking lots and $263 for gas stations. Original Source : Vancouver Requires Gas Stations & Parking Lots Without EV Chargers To Pay $10,000 Per Year - CleanTechnica VW CEO Follows GM's Lead, Reiterating Goal To Overtake Tesla By 2025 - CNBC asked Diess why Tesla is so highly valued. More specifically, why are investors so willing to pay a massive premium for Tesla over other automakers. Diess explained that markets are "always about the future.” He added: “Tesla currently is in the lead when it comes to EVs, probably also it is the most digital car company already and they have some advantages. We are still aiming at keeping up and probably overtaking by 2025 when it comes to sales.” Original Source : VW CEO Follows GM's Lead, Reiterating Goal To Overtake Tesla By 2025 (insideevs.com) Tesla Research Partner Publishes Details About 100-Year Battery - If you follow Tesla, you're probably aware of Jeff Dahn and his team of researchers at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada. Dahn is the man responsible for the talk about a "million-mile" EV battery, which sounds fascinating, though perhaps not that out of reach. However, more recently, the team with ties to Tesla published a new paper about an energy-dense EV battery that could last 100 years. - Abstract or paper: ‘'NMC cells, particularly those balanced and charged to 3.8 V, show better coulombic efficiency, less capacity fade and higher energy density compared to LFP cells and are projected to yield lifetimes approaching a century at 25 °C.'' Original Source : Tesla Research Partner Publishes Details About 100-Year Battery (insideevs.com) Swiss E-Bike Startup OPIUM To Launch Two Long-Range E-Bikes Soon - Swiss e-bike startup OPIUM is capitalizing on these technological advancements, and is set to release two new long-range electric bicycles this summer. Dubbed the 6.0 and 4.0, both e-bikes will have an impressive range of 340 kilometers, or around 211 miles. - The e-bikes are expected to be open for pre-order this summer, with deliveries expected to commence come 2023. As for battery tech, both the 6.0 and 4.0 will come with a 1,670 Wh battery. The buyer will have the option to purchase a 470 Wh extender, which will be necessary in order to achieve the claimed 211-mile range. As for power, it's stronger than most off-the-shelf e-bikes, too, with an 850W brushless electric motor as standard. - To help riders keep tabs of their journeys, the OPIUM's e-bikes will come equipped with a digital display that shows trip data, route information, and other pertinent info such as battery charge. Original Source : Swiss E-Bike Startup OPIUM To Launch Two Long-Range E-Bikes Soon (insideevs.com) Stellantis and Samsung SDI to Invest Over $2.5 Billion in Joint Venture for EV Battery Production Plant in United States - Joint venture to build electric-vehicle battery plant in Kokomo, Indiana, U.S. to support Stellantis' North America electrification ambitions outlined in Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan. - Targeted to start in 2025, the plant aims to have an initial annual production capacity of 23 gigawatt-hours (GWh), with an aim to increase to 33 GWh in the next few years. The total capacity would increase further as demand for Stellantis electric vehicles is expected to rise. - At the Indiana factory, Samsung SDI will be apply its cutting-edge technology PRiMX to produce EV battery cells and modules for the North America market. Last year, Samsung launched its premium battery technology brand PRiMX as an industry first and unveiled the brand at CES 2022 in January.

Audi is also offering a special model limited to 520 for the market launch. - The Ingolstadt company will only offer the Q4 in China in the Q4 40 e-tron and Q4 50 e-tron quattro variants. The 40 e-tron is powered by an electric motor in the rear with an output of 150 kW. The 50 e-tron quattro is a four-wheel drive with a maximum output of 220 kW. The top speed is also 160 km/h, just like in this country. - However, there is a difference with the battery. In Europe, the chemical storage unit has a usable energy content of 76.6 kWh. For the Chinese market, on the other hand, it has a capacity of 79.7 kWh, which, according to Chinese standards, should allow a range of up to 605 kilometres. The battery cells with the NCM 811 chemistry come from CATL. There are also differences in the charging time from 5 to 80 per cent: the Q4 40 e-tron takes 29 minutes and the Q4 50 e-tron quattro 36 minutes for the European versions. In China, however, both variants need a full 41 minutes for the charging process.

Show #1477 Well…Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily, your trusted source of EV information. It's Tuesday 24th May, and Martyn is off on his holidays for the week. I'm Blake Boland, and I've gone through every EV story today so that you don't have to! The “Stealth Bomber” Drops A Bomb: Foxconn-Fisker Vehicle Confirmed - Author of article, Jennifer Sensiba - ‘In a previous series of articles, I explained that Taiwan-based Foxconn (aka Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd.) is going to be a serious player in the EV industry, but that you probably won't hear much about it. Why? Because it is going to be the “stealth bomber” of manufacturers.' - A few days ago, Fisker announced solid plans to build the PEAR, and it is working with Foxconn to build it in Ohio. This is supposed to happen in 2024, and the starting price is supposed to be below $29,900. - Whatever the PEAR is going to actually be, Fisker and Foxconn tell us that they expect to sell a whole bunch of them. After a ramp-up period, they want to make at least 250,000 units per year, and that they have high hopes to make many more. Original Source : The "Stealth Bomber" Drops A Bomb: Foxconn-Fisker Vehicle Confirmed - CleanTechnica Tesla Giga Shanghai output will return to pre-lockdown levels by Tuesday -An internal memo sent to Tesla employees said the automaker plans to have production levels at its Gigafactory Shanghai production facility return to pre-lockdown levels by Tuesday. The plant faced a three-week hiatus in production in April after a surge of COVID-19 cases in the city caused government officials to determine a shutdown was appropriate. - Tesla's daily output will return to 2,600 on Tuesday, according to the memo, which was seen by Reuters. The document said there were around 1,000 electric units produced on Monday, and the weekly output would move closer to 16,000 cars every seven days. - Additionally, this has made a substantial impact on workforces in the area. Tesla, along with other companies in the Shanghai region, has been short on workers, as well as restricted with parts due to supply chain issues in scaled back production due to the shutdowns. Original Source : Tesla Giga Shanghai output will return to pre-lockdown levels by Tuesday (teslarati.com) Tesla Giga Shanghai May Remain In Closed-Loop System Until Mid-June - Tesla's Giga Shanghai factory will reportedly continue operating in a closed-loop system until mid-June, people familiar with the matter who wished to remain anonymous told Bloomberg. - Company reportedly wants to move workers into dormitories and keep them in a form of closed loop until June 13. - With two shifts running 24 hours a day, Tesla's Shanghai factory may be able to return to the pre-lockdown daily production of around 2,100 vehicles a day. Currently, the facility is running at about 45% of capacity and auto parts suppliers are also at around that level, a local government official said at a briefing last week. This contradicts a statement from another local government official who said in early May that Giga Shanghai production was back at over 80% of capacity.
