Volvo is charging ahead with its plan to electrify its fleet in less than a decade, but it continues to renew its gasoline-powered models as well. One strong example is the 2022 Volvo XC60 midsize luxury crossover that gets a completely new powertrain for the new model year. We recently had the opportunity to drive it in the hills of Malibu, California, and then spoke to its key product planner, Gauging Kalsaria. In the interview Kalsaria reveals how Volvo sees its new powertrains as stepping stones toward full electrification. And he and Host Jack Nerad explore EVs and other topics in the wide-ranging discussion. In the road test segment,Co-host Chris Teague and Host Jack Nerad share their views on two mid-size SUVs. From his post in Maine, Chris Teague tests the 2022 Ford Explorer, the latest iteration of one of the most popular sport-utility vehicles of all time. And he'll tell us how he thinks it fares against the current competition. Also in the road test segment, Host Jack Nerad reports from behind the wheel of the all-new Genesis GV70 compact crossover utility. With two impressive engine choices and eye-catching styling inside and out the GV70 could be a strong contender for North American Utility Vehicle of the Year honors. In the news, there is drama at Volkswagen this week as the automaker's plans to shift to electric vehicles upsets its workforce in Germany. Some feel that Volkswagen is going too fast on its plan to go electric, while others suggest it is going far too slow. Will this strife cost its CEO his job? Can Volkswagen out-Tesla Elon Musk? We'll explore that in this week's episode. And we'll also discuss the lengths car dealers are going to so they can obtain cars to sell. It's all coming upon this week's episode of America on The Road.

NEW LOTUS TYPE 132 SUV PREVIEWED IN OFFICIAL IMAGE - Lotus has given a first look at its maiden SUV, which is codenamed the Type 132 and due to be revealed in full next year. - As first reported by Autocar, the Type 132 has been in development since 2016 and is set to launch with two four-wheel-drive variants, offering between 600bhp and 750bhp. It will be able to accommodate batteries ranging from 92-120kWh in capacity and will offer 800V charging. - The Norfolk firm has released the first in a series of official videos that will build up to the launch of the new Aston Martin DBX rival, which will be a key element of its bold growth strategy under the ownership of Chinese car giant Geely. - The Type 132 will be built at a new £900 million manufacturing facility in Wuhan, China, and will be one of two Chinese-built EVs the firm will launch in the next five years. Original Source : https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/new-lotus-type-132-suv-previewed-official-image SAMSUNG SDI AND SK ON TO COMPETE WITH CHINESE MAKERS WITH PRISMATIC BATTERIES - Korea's three major battery makers, which have announced massive investment plans for the United States, are shifting their focus to Europe. They are looking to secure an edge with next-generation batteries in a price war with Chinese battery companies. - The key is competition with Chinese battery companies. China's CATL, the world's largest battery company, is building a battery plant in Germany for commercial operation from 2022. CATL produces prismatic batteries and is expected to focus on expanding orders from Volkswagen. In March, Volkswagen announced that it would increase the proportion of prismatic batteries to 80 percent by 2030. - Samsung SDI and CATL will compete fiercely in the prismatic battery sector. Samsung SDI is betting on Gen. 5, a next-generation prismatic battery to be used for BMW electric vehicles. - Major European automakers such as Daimler, BMW and Volkswagen are placing battery orders worth tens of trillion won to secure batteries for their vehicles to be launched after 2024. Original Source : http://www.businesskorea.co.kr/news/articleView.html BMW I7 REPORTEDLY GETTING THREE ELECTRIC MOTORS SHARED WITH I5 M - It was back in March last year when BMW originally announced there would be a fully electric version of the next-generation 7 Series. - CEO Oliver Zipse revealed during the Annual Accounts Press Conference 2020 the variant without a combustion engine would be the most potent. - Likely to be called i7, the 7 Series sans gasoline/diesel engine is said to have three electric motors in its highest specification. According to Auto Motor und Sport, two of them will be mounted at the back and the third one will be positioned on the front axle. The report mentions the e-motor driving the front wheels will have less power. - the same three-motor setup could be installed in a full-fat M version of the next 5 Series in EV form (i5) with a yet-to-be-confirmed total output of 750 horsepower. - It won't ride on a dedicated electric car platform as it will share its underpinnings and most of the design as well as shape with the combustion-engined models. For a bespoke EV from Bavaria, 2025 will be the year when the Neue Klasse architecture will debut.

Thanks to an outstanding, two-part presentation and teardown conducted by Ingineerix, we can take an in-depth look at this new solution, hinted at in early 2021 by Elon Musk and shown only briefly at the delivery event. - previously Tesla was using in the Model S/Model X a 12 V, 33 Ah lead-acid AGM battery. It stores about 0.4 kWh of energy, but weight is quite substantial: 27 lbs (12 kg). According to Ingineerix, such batteries last in Teslas about 2-4 years, which is pretty low and sometimes causes unexpected problems if the car stops working. - The new,lithium-ion battery is much smaller and much lighter (only about 4 lbs / 1.8 kg). That's because it's much higher energy density, but also has a lower energy content. We assume that with a more reliable and "smart" solution, there is no need for 0.4 kWh. The battery has only a 0.1 kWh of energy (99 Wh to be precise) and a capacity of 6.9 Ah, according to the description. - the new battery consists of a BMS circuit board made by CATL and four prismatic NMC lithium-ion battery cells (6.9 Ah each), connected in series.

During an interview on “Squawk on the Street,” CNBC's Jim Cramer asked about PepsiCo's plans to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. - “Transportation is about 10% of our overall gas emissions so it's important and we're working on different solutions. We replace our fleet regularly, every ten years more or less...and we're already starting to buy electric trucks actually from Tesla. I mean I don't want to promote anybody but that's the brand we're using so far and we're getting our first deliveries this Q4.” - The comments come almost four years after PepsiCo first announced it would purchase 100 Tesla Semi trucks. It was the largest known pre-order of the vehicle at the time. - On the company's Q2 earnings call in July, Tesla said it was pushing the Semi program to 2022 due to supply chain challenges and the limited availability of battery cells.

Sean: And one of the age-old questions that are often seen and often asked in Facebook groups now, especially for startup Facebook groups is, what's the difference between branding and marketing? Vince: Oh, okay. So not much. It's kind of like the age-old question. What's the difference between marketing and sales, in reality, they're all blurred. They are all kind of the same things. Essentially, if you think about branding in a traditional sense, branding is as two things. It is how your customers perceive it. So that is how they see you, what they think of you, their sentiment towards you, all those different things. And this is the weird thing that people have to get their heads around. As often, we do our best to control our brand. We do our best to design our brand, but the reality is it really is down to how people perceive you. You could, you could say I'm the most trustworthy brand in the world. I want to build. I want to be the new Volvo, you know, where everything's about customer safety and it's all about, you know, looking after their customers and they trust us intensely. But the reality is if you're Volkswagen and you're, you know, out there kind of skewing the tests and doing some Chiddy-dodgy kind of stuff out there, the customers are going to see you in a very different way from how you perceive yourself or want to be perceived. So branding really is about their visibility. The other side of branding is who you are, and this is where your kind of branding comes from. As one of the first exercises we ever do with entrepreneurs, when we're working on branding workers to go, what's important to you. And by that, I mean, like, what are the things that you are not negotiating on? What are your values? What do you stand for? What is your story? How did you get to where you are now? Where did you get to all of those aspects together from who you are as an entrepreneur or from who you are as a startup? And that is your core brand.

It's a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. VOLKSWAGEN ID.5 ELECTRIC CAR WILL RIVAL TESLA MODEL Y IN 2022 - VOLKSWAGEN has taken the covers off its new ID.5 electric SUV-coupé, which features sleeker styling, a 323-mile range and slightly upgraded tech compared to its ID.4 sibling. Both models could be considered rivals to the Tesla Model Y, which arrives in the UK from early 2022, as well as the Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6 - As the ID.5 is based on the same underpinnings as the recently-launched VW ID.4, the engineering and overall footprint is the same. It's only in profile and from the rear that the ID.5's visual differences become apparent; rather than a truncated hatchback rear end, the ID.5's roofline slopes down towards a rear spoiler atop the boot-lid. - One key difference between the ID.5 and ID.4 is that the former gets just a single (77kWh) battery option. The range is divided into three basic levels when it comes to powertrains — Pro, Pro Performance and GTX. - In Pro and Pro Performance models, a single electric motor drives the rear wheels delivering 172bhp and 201bhp, respectively. At the top of the tree, the GTX gets dual motors, one acting on the front axle and the second on the rear, making it all-wheel drive. Total power output of the GTX is 295bhp, which is enough to propel it from 0-62mph in 6.3 seconds — over a second slower than the Tesla Model Y Long Range and 2.6 seconds slower than the Model Y Performance. Original Source : https://www.driving.co.uk/news/new-cars/2022-volkswagen-id5-details/ Volkswagen ID.5 and ID.5 GTX: price, specs and release data - While the ID.4 can charge at a maximum of 120kW, the ID.5 accepts up to 135kW of power. That means an 80% top-up at a fast-charger takes just 26 minutes, compared to 35 minutes for the ID.4. VW's other ID. models will soon be able to charge at the higher rate, as the brand is rolling out an update. - Coupe-SUVs command a premium over the boxier models on which they're based, so you can expect the ID.5 to start from around £47,000. You'll be able to order the Volkswagen ID.5 in early 2022 and at that point we should have full prices and specifications. Original Source : https://www.carbuyer.co.uk/volkswagen/303582/volkswagen-id5-and-id5-gtx-price-specs-and-release-date VW ID.5 RWD And ID.5 GTX AWD Electric Crossover Coupes Are Here - Customers who will opt for the ID.5 GTX will need to settle for a lower estimated range of 480 km (298 miles) compared to the RWD models, but the performance gains and all-weather capability appear worth the upgrade.  The ID.5 GTX also features some subtle design upgrades over the regular ID.5, including sportier bumpers (with integrated DRLs at the front), IQ.Light LED matrix headlights, LED taillight clusters with a 3D design, dual-tone paints, and  a performance-themed cockpit. - The VW ID.5 and ID.5 GTX will launch in Europe in early 2022, but the automaker said nothing of a US debut. However, the dual-motor AWD powertrain of the ID.5 GTX is already available stateside in the ID.4 AWD Pro and Pro S.

Original Source : https://www.reuters.com/business/autos-transportation/exclusive-volkswagen-mediation-committee-discuss-future-ceo-diess-sources-2021-11-03/ WORKS COUNCIL CONFLICT AT VW CONTINUES TO ESCALATE - Until the mediation committee reaches a result – possibly by the beginning of December – important decisions in the operative business will be suspended. These include investments that have not yet been approved. For this reason, some insiders say that the company is currently “blocked”. - Herbert Diess wants to continue to focus the company on electromobility and, for example, strengthen in-house software development. In addition, the plants are to become more efficient – the conflict with the works council recently escalated at the main plant in Wolfsburg. The works council did not oppose the change to electromobility, but rather the way Diess is pushing his course. - As reported, a compromise had emerged that Wolfsburg could receive the overflow production of the ID.3 and ID.4 from Zwickau – and would thus enter electric car production before the electric vehicle flagship announced for 2026. The so-called planning round, in which Volkswagen distributes models among the worldwide plants (and thus influences their capacity utilisation) had to be postponed most recently from mid-November to December.

Hold onto your synapses! For perspective consider this — the 1984 Ferrari Testarossa, one of the most highly regarded exoticars of all time, had a top speed of just over 185 mph and took 5.0 seconds to reach 60 mph. So Cadillac has assembled an amazing car, but is the brand getting the credit it deserves? In this episode of America on the Road Host Jack Nerad will review the CT5-V Blackwing and explore that question and others regarding this incredibly capable 4-door sedan. We will also take a look at another performance car with more modest credentials and a much more accessible price. Co-host Chris Teague will road test the 2022 Hyundai Elantra N Line. Is it fast? How well do his daughters fit in the back seat? He will cover all that and more in America on the Road's vehicle test segment. Our special guest this week is Melinda Godec, Volkswagen product planner. She and Host Jack Nerad will discuss the heavily revised 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan, the brand's most popular model. Nerad got a chance to drive the new Tiguan at a recent Southern California-based event. In the news, electric vehicles will get serious coverage this week. These days most global carmakers are heavily promoting electric vehicles as a solution to climate change. But a major car company just said that EVs aren't for everyone. We'll tell you which company that is explore why they said that in this episode. Meanwhile Canada is none too happy about new proposed U.S. tax credits on EVs that some new legislation would institute, and some car dealers aren't either. We'll tell you about the special-interest deal hidden in the proposed tax credits in this episode of America on the Road brought to you by Mercury Insurance and Driving Today.com.

I have historically had a VERY fraught relationship with eating.    I grew up in Orange County, California, where eating disorders were a rite of passage. And I don't say that flippantly—almost everyone I knew growing up had a disordered relationship to eating, myself included.   I remember pulling into the student parking lot at my high school and seeing some kid's Volkswagen decorated with a bumper sticker that read, “No Fat Chicks, my Bug will Scrape.” I remember feeling a sense of alarm … like, I had just been schooled on one of the fundamental rules of adolescence in my community: DO NOT be fat. Whatever else you may do.   I know this tortured dynamic isn't unique to me. Most women I know have a difficult relationship with food.    It's VERY confusing to have a tortured relationship to something you literally cannot  live without.Food is a fact of our humanity. But for so many of us, it is a fact shrouded in myth and morality and twisted by culture.    It's a mess.   My guest today is someone who I think has the potential to break through the misinformation (and frankly, the misogyny) associated with food. Her name is Vanessa Rissetto, and I fell madly in love with her during this conversation. I know you will too.   Vanessa is a registered dietician who Essence named “one of the top 5 black nutritionists that will make you change the way you think about nutrition”.

Welcome to new Patreon Producer ANDREW ROBERTON JAGUAR LAND ROVER INTEND TO JOIN TESLA'S EU CO2 POOL FOR 2021 - Tesla have found a new partner to join its EU CO2 pool for 2021. British-based and Tata owned Jaguar Land Rover intend to form a CO2 pool with the Elon Musk-run company for 2021, alongside Honda that were part of Tesla's pool last year. - Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) under the shadow of the semiconductor shortage have likely concluded that they are more willing to derail their CO2 compliance targets in order to help their underlying profits from their higher emitting profitable models than sacrifice these in order to meet their compliance targets. - JLR also intend to join the Tesla/Honda UK-only pool for 2021 according to UK government data. - This is the first year UK only CO2 targets – largely carried over from the European system – will be enforced following the transition period which ended at the end of 2020. Last year JLR failed to meet its EU CO2 obligation goal, attributing 35 million GBP to fines for this according to JLR.

According to the ambitious "Dealer Community Charging Program," GM and its dealers will work together to expand access to charging in local communities, including in underserved, rural and urban areas where EV charging access is often limited. - Involving dealers in this program is a logical approach seeing as nearly 90 percent of the US population lives within 10 miles (16 km) of a GM dealership, according to the automaker. GM will be giving each of its EV dealers up to 10 Ultium Level 2 destination charging stations and will be working with them to deploy the chargers at key locations throughout their local communities. - these charging stations will be available to all EV customers Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/543214/gm-dealers-40000-ultium-chargers - The "Ultium" brand name of GM's all-new EV platform, propulsion components and charging ecosystem will soon expand to include a family of three Ultium Chargers for residential and commercial use developed with leading vehicle charging specialist CTEK. - The Ultium Chargers will include an 11.5 kilowatt/48-amp smart charger, 11.5 kW/48-amp premium smart charger and a 19.2 kW/80-amp premium smart charger. The two premium models include a customizable touchscreen and an embedded camera.All three Ultium chargers are Energy Star Certified, with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Each charger features dynamic load balancing and can be upgraded over time through over-the-air software updates with automatic download capabilities. - To help offset the cost of installing a home charger, customers will be able to roll the price into their GM vehicle financing or leasing plans.

A special rule on this was already softened in June due to the lack of available EV models. - Now the situation has apparently worsened due to the electric boom and the chip shortage: Volkswagen just informed its approximately 18,000 managers that electric and hybrid models will “probably not be available for order” as company cars until the end of 2022.

Tesla was #2 on the list with 15.9% of sales, and Stellantis was 3rd with 13.2%.” “Aside from Volkswagen Group and Tesla, Stellantis (13.2% of BEV sales), the Hyundai–Kia collab (11.9% of BEV sales), and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance (10.3% of BEV sales) are above 10% of the BEV sales in these 10 countries.

These electric buses would replace existing diesel vehicles within STC's Canadian fleet. Lion estimates that the deployment of 1,000 all-electric school buses would help eliminate approximately 23,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year.

Hello Meaningful Travelers! In this episode we speak with Ryan Hitzel. Ryan is the Founder and Creative Director of The Roark Revival, a brand that follows a wayward adventurer named Roark around the globe making apparel and trinkets inspired by the travels. Previous to Roark, Ryan was an Associate Creative Director on Volkswagen at Deutsch Advertising in Los Angeles. He resides with his family in Laguna Beach, Ca. "I grew up travelling a ton, and as an artist I'd do my best to document it through photography, painting and writing – often shows or books. It led me to 5 years working for Volcom in the Art Department in the early 2000's and then as a Creative Director in Advertising prior to starting Roark. Around 2010, the surf and outdoor industries bored me. They were formulaic and sterile, too big. It seemed to me that they had lost their way. I saw a lack of storytelling and the types of adventures I enjoyed off the beaten path. There was little care about moments that enriched ones development and excitement to learn about other cultures. I thought I could apply the things I loved to a brand that did more than just make clothes and get tubed. It seemed like an opportunity to literally tie the stories to the product and create something that wasn't a surf, skate or outdoor brand. A brand that was focused on the lifestyle of adventurism. Roark was born." Listen to the amazing and inspiring travel stories that Ryan has to share in this episode of the Travel With Meaning Podcast. Hope you enjoy this one!

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Tuesday 19th 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. NISSAN LEAF WILL BE REPLACED BY ELECTRIC CROSSOVER "Nissan has confirmed that the new electric compact crossover it will build at its Sunderland plant in the UK will replace the Leaf hatchback. In July, Nissan announced plans to build a new crossover in Sunderland as part of a £1 billion ($1.37 billion) investment in the plant to secure its future. Now, Nissan Europe boss, Guillaume Cartier, has confirmed that the new model will be a replacement for the Leaf." reports InsideEVs: "Expected to launch around 2025, the Leaf crossover will be based on the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance's CMF-EV platform that's also used by the Ariya and Megane E-Tech Electric. This means that Nissan's core future model lineup in Europe will be made up exclusively of electrified crossovers: the Juke, Qashqai, Ariya, X-Trail, and the Leaf replacement.  The compact crossover will feature Envision AESC's latest battery cells, which will be manufactured in a new battery gigafactory."

Through the first eight months of 2021, the marque's battery-powered cars and SUVs made up nearly two thirds of those registered in the US." writes Robb Report: "According to new data from Experian (h/t Inside EVs), 294,218 electric vehicles were sold between January and August. That number only accounts for 2.7 percent of total automobile sales, but represents a 114 percent increase compared to the same period in 2020. And 194,165 of those vehicles were Teslas. That number represents 66 percent of all EVs registered in that time and a 79 percent increase when compared to the same period last year." As for the model split: "Model Y compact crossover (pictured at top): 105,445 of the electric SUVs have been registered in 2021. That number is actually larger than the sum total of non-Tesla EVs sold during this same period (100,053 units)" Read more: https://robbreport.com/motors/cars/tesla-dominates-ev-sales-1234642397/ TESLA Q3 BIGGER THAN VW, BMW, MERCEDES AND MORE "With ~99,000 deliveries, Tesla was able to pass up GMC (97,254), Lexus (81,093), Volkswagen (79,321), BMW (75,619), Mercedes (71,185), and Dodge (49,059). That's 6 major auto brands that Tesla just passed. Of course, it's also worth pointing out here that Tesla has just two main models (Model 3 and Model Y) and the more expensive, limited-production Model S. Imagine what sales could get to with a few more vehicle body styles." says CleanTEchnica: "Tesla's Q3 sales numbers actually put Tesla as the 11th best selling auto brand in the USA. That compares to Tesla coming in 17th in Q3 2020."

Diess recently reiterated this point in a post on LinkedIn, which emphasized how much savings customers would see if they chose to drive an electric car instead of a gas or diesel-powered equivalent. " reports Simon at Teslarati: "Diess highlighted his point by showing how Volkswagen's electric vehicles are better than the company's own ICE cars. The executive's point was clear: shifting to EVs would save customers money, and Volkswagen's electric cars are better than the company's tried-and-tested ICE lineup.  It's difficult not to be impressed by Herbert Diess' consistency, especially when it comes to his stance on electric vehicles. Diess is a longtime EV proponent, and he is largely responsible for Volkswagen's aggressive push into sustainable transportation." He wrote on LinkedIn: "Driving a combustion engine car costs up to 50% more compared to an e-car. The Autozeitung does the math, taking into account all the costs: Driving a VW Tiguan costs around 30% more per kilometer than an ID.4. One kilometer in an Audi Q5 costs around 40% more compared to a Q4 e-tron. And driving a Skoda Kodiaq is around 50% more expensive per kilometer compared to an Enyaq.

Nevertheless, a uniform industrial standard has not been released yet to normalize the infrastructure building of different companies."

Not only will customers be able to get a vehicle, insurance, and incidentals for a flat fee, they'll also get a similarly arranged subscription to a Power 7 e-bike." says CarScoops: "The Mercedes-EQ City Abo subscription plan is intended to give customers a fully electric, fully flexible experience, for one all-inclusive price.

The M7 is based on a concept EV previously shared by WM Motor and will be the first sedan in its fleet. Furthermore, it's reported to come equipped with three separate LiDAR sensors." writes electrek: "WM Motor has established itself in the Chinese EV market, albeit a small share compared to other automakers like NIO and XPeng.

TESLA'S MUSK DIALS INTO VOLKSWAGEN EXECUTIVE CONFERENCE "Tesla (TSLA.O) boss Elon Musk has addressed 200 Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) executives via a video call after an invitation from the German carmaker's CEO Herbert Diess, who wants to galvanise VW's top brass for a faster pivot to electric vehicles." reports Reuters: "The comments on Thursday by Musk to a VW managers gathering in Alpbach, Austria, confirmed by Diess via Twitter on Saturday after a report in Handelsblatt daily, included praise of VW for being an "icon" and Tesla's greatest challenger, Handelsblatt said. The paper said that when asked by Diess why Tesla was more nimble than its rivals, Musk said it came down to his management style and that he is an engineer, first of all, and has an eye for supply chains, logistics and production." Diess said on Linkedin: ""Happy to hear that even our strongest competitor thinks that we will succeed (in) the transition if we drive the transformation with full power" Read more: https://www.reuters.com/business/autos-transportation/teslas-musk-dials-into-volkswagen-executive-conference-2021-10-16/ ELON MUSK GETS ALMOST $13 BILLION RICHER IN ONE WEEK AS TESLA STOCK HITS 8-MONTH HIGH "The boom times made Musk richer than Jeff Bezos in late September and pushed his net worth past $200 billion for the first time. He's having fun with the competition. After telling Forbes he would send Bezos a silver medal upon his ascent to the top spot, he followed through on that promise on Monday by replying to one of Bezos' tweets with a silver medal emoji." writes Forbes: "Although Musk widened the gap this week, Bezos still got $5.6 billion richer on Friday with Amazon stock rising 3.3%. Since stepping down as CEO of Amazon in July, Bezos has spent more time in the public eye promoting his commercial spaceflight company Blue Origin" https://www.forbes.com/sites/hanktucker/2021/10/16/elon-musk-gets-almost-13-billion-richer-in-one-week-as-tesla-stock-hits-8-month-high/ KIA AND HYUNDAI SALES RISE IN SEPTEMBER "Kia reports global car sales of 223,593 (down 14.1% year-over-year) in September, although the all-electric sales are booming. The company reports 2,654 Kia EV6 sales in South Korea, which is 7.4% of the total volume (35,801). We noted that an additional 90 units were delivered in Europe, which means 2,744 total for the month of September." reports InsideEVs: "An interesting thing is that the Kia's older electric models - the Soul EV and Niro EV - also do pretty well. The manufacturer reports 975 Soul EV and 7,451 Niro EV sold outside South Korea (we don't have number for Kia's home market), which is 8,426 total (up 27% year-over-year). 80% of that falls on Europe. It means that the BEV sales already exceeds 11,000 (or 5% of the total volume) in a single month." As as for their sister company: "Hyundai reports a big 24% decrease of its global car sales (wholesale, on the manufacturer level) in September - to 279,307. Fortunately, the plug-in segment expands. The  ompany's sales of plug-in cars amounted to 16,400 (up 27% year-over-year), which is a record 5.9% share of the total volume." according to InsideEVs: "So far this year, Hyundai reports sales of over 110,000 plug-in car sales (up 35% year-over-year), which represents 3.8% of the total volume. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 continues its expansion at a rate of over 7,000 units a month (the 5-month average), followed by still quite good results for the Hyundai Kona Electric (over 4,100 in September)."

Zhu, a fellow at the Royal Academy of Engineering in the UK, is known for his work in electrical machines and permanent magnets, which won him the 2021 IEEE Nikola Tesla Award."

At least, that is, according to Prabhakar Patil, who was CEO of LG Chem Power, Inc from 2010 to 2015, as well as spending five years working on Ford's hybrid technologies. The former battery company head has estimated that 50% of cars sold in Europe could be EVs by as soon as 2025, when globally the figure will probably be more like 20%." says Forbes: "Many European countries are setting strict deadlines for the phasing out of sales of new fossil fuel cars and hybrids, such as the UK, as well as enforcing stringent emission standards for key cities. This is providing yet another incentive for residents to go electric. In the USA, in contrast, there is a struggle between the governing bodies of states that want similarly tough deadlines and incumbent economic interests. When Californian Governor Gavin Newsom announced there would be a ban on gasoline-powered cars by 2035, even the Environmental Protection Agency weighed in to say it could be illegal. There has been much discussion of how the magic $100 per kWh price boundary for batteries will enable battery-electric vehicles to become cheaper than internal combustion engine ones. Bloomberg NEF predicted 2027 as the likely year for the changeover." That's an article by James Morris from Whichev.

The Model 3 Standard Range+ is as basic as you can get with Tesla's vehicles. It is the most affordable car available from Tesla, starting at $41,990. When ordering the sedan with its standard Aero wheels, orders are now advised that the soonest delivery dates are set for August 2022." reports Joey at Teslarati: "Tesla's online Design Studio, the portion of the automaker's website that allows potential owners to design their vehicles, now shows an estimated delivery for the Model 3 Standard Range+ with Aero wheels for August. Other more expensive car variations are available for delivery as soon as November, but the cheapest combination of the vehicle won't be available until Q3 2022." https://www.teslarati.com/tesla-model-3-standard-range-plus-august-2022-deliveries/ TESLA ROLLS OUT SAFETY SCORE-BASED INSURANCE PRODUCT IN TEXAS "Tesla is now selling insurance to customers in Texas, two years after first launching the offering in its now-former home state of California. But the version in Texas is different. The company says it will evaluate driving behavior in real-time using the “Safety Score” feature that it recently launched to screen drivers who want to join the beta test of the company's “Full Self-Driving” beta software." according to The Verge: "That means drivers might wind up paying less — or more — per month based on how many forward collision warnings they rack up, how hard they brake, how “aggressively” they turn, how much distance they leave to the car in front, and whether they keep their hands on the wheel when using Autopilot. Tesla used some driving behavior metrics to develop premiums in California, but they were not real-time and relied more on statistical evaluations. The offering in Texas represents a big break from how other insurance companies arrive at their quoted premiums. Even ones that rely on data from telematics dongles plugged into a car still consider other factors like age." https://www.theverge.com/2021/10/15/22728411/tesla-insurance-texas-safety-score-premiums-california NOT EVEN A PANDEMIC CAN STOP SOLAR'S EPIC GROWTH "Despite the pandemic, the United States built more utility-scale solar power plants in 2020 than any other year, with Texas leading the way. All those new solar plants added up to 9.6 gigawatts of renewable energy added to the U.S. power grid, bringing the nation's total solar capacity to 48 gigawatts. That's enough to allow further retirements in the nation's coal fleet, which had 223 gigawatts of capacity in 2020." says Grist.org: "Before 2017, California was putting up the lion's share of solar projects. But in recent years Texas has become the leader. In 2020, the state installed enough solar panels to generate 2.5 gigawatts of electricity under full sun, while Florida and California each built 1.6 gigawatts of utility-scale solar. Fewer projects are going up in California because panels are flooding the grid with electricity when the sun is shining." https://grist.org/energy/2020-record-year-for-solar-energy/?utm_source=pocket_mylist BMW BATTERIES POWER COLDPLAY WORLD TOUR "BMW has just found a way to make its recyclable i3 EV batteries do good outside of the automotive industry: BMW batteries are going on tour with Coldplay. The Music Of The Spheres World Tour will be powered by 40 recyclable i3 batteries, which promises to drastically cut down on emissions, and will feature a kinetic dance floor that will recharge said batteries by the fans themselves. That rocks." says CarBuzz: "The 40 batteries going on tour will provide enough power to run live shows, and will be supported by solar installations, hydro-treated vegetable oil generators, power bikes, and coolest of all, a kinetic dance floor, which will turn Coldplay fans' moves into energy." https://carbuzz.com/news/bmw-batteries-power-coldplay-world-tour?utm_source=pocket_mylist MAKE ELECTRIC VEHICLES LIGHTER TO GET MORE BENEFITS https://www.treehugger.com/study-make-electric-vehicles-lighter-for-more-benefits-5205834 NEW QUESTION OF THE WEEK WITH EMOBILITYNORWAY.COM When buying a used electric car, how do you feel about servicing?

BMW READY FOR ANY BAN ON FOSSIL FUELS "Germany's BMW (BMWG.DE) will be ready for any ban on internal combustion engine (ICE) cars from 2030 onwards with an offering of electric vehicles, Chief Executive Officer Oliver Zipse said on Tuesday." according to Reuters: "The EU has proposed an effective ban on fossil fuel cars from 2035 as part of a broader package of measures to combat global warming. Unlike rivals including Volkswagen and General Motors, BMW has not set an end date for production of ICE cars." Oliver Zipse: "We will be ICE-ban ready. If a region, a city, a country gets the idea of banning ICEs, we have an offering. The BMW Group is not worried about this. Whether it's a good idea is another question... but we will have an offering."

A number of EV owners went out for drives during National Day earlier this month without realizing there were not enough charging facilities along the highway, as per the report.

Those cells use a sulfide-based solid electrolyte in place of the liquid or gel used in conventional lithium-ion cells." writes Green Car Reports: "When fully-charged test cells were punctured by a conductive nail, the only change was a slight increase in temperature, Soild Power said in a press release. The nail penetration test produced no flames or venting of material from the cells, the company claims. In other tests, cells were overcharged to 200%, and were also caused to short circuit, again with no serious issues, according to Solid Power. . It also claims to have achieved a cell lifespan of 1,000 cycles with greater than 80% capacity retention. With small pouch cells so far, the next step will be to scale up to the larger format pouch cells that some automakers are shifting to." https://www.greencarreports.com/news/1133863_ford-bmw-solid-power-demonstrates-safety-solid-state-battery-tech *ad break* U.S. REGULATOR QUESTIONS TESLA ON THE LACK OF A RECALL AFTER AN UPDATE TO AUTOPILOT. "The top federal auto safety regulator sent two letters to Tesla this week raising questions about the company's driver-assistance software systems and instructing the carmaker to provide fuller information." reports New York Times: "The regulator, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, is looking into why Tesla did not issue a recall last month when it updated software called Autopilot to improve its ability to spot stopped emergency vehicles such as police cars and fire trucks. The agency also ordered Tesla to provide data about the software that the company calls Full Self-Driving and expressed concern that Tesla may be preventing customers from sharing safety information with the agency." https://www.nytimes.com/live/2021/10/13/business/news-business-stock-market TESLA APP HINTS AT REMOTE LIVE VIEW FROM AUTOPILOT CAMERAS "Tesla has released a new mobile app update with a few new small features, but it also shows that the automaker has made some progress toward delivering a remote live view from Autopilot cameras on your car." writes electrek.co: "The new update, v4.2, introduces new bigger widgets to iOS and some new Powerwall features. Improvements to larger iOS widget to include quick controls...Solar and Powerwall supports Tesla-maintained utility rate plans. Utility rate plans now support seasons, multiple peak periods, and buy & sell energy prices...Powerwall's Time-Based Control mode supports the updated rate plans to more accurately use energy from Powerwall when power is expensive and charge from other sources when power is at its cheapest. Some of the code suggests that Tesla is working to give access to the feed from four cameras out of the eight cameras around the vehicle – one on each side:" https://electrek.co/2021/10/14/tesla-app-update-widgets-powerwall-features-remote-live-view-autopilot-cameras/ TESLA MODEL S PLAID WITH ACTIVE AERO CAUGHT TESTING AT THE NÜRBURGRING "For all of its supercar performance, the Tesla Model S Plaid doesn't really have much of the performance technology we expect from a supercar. The most obvious example is that hallmark of modern supercardom, active aerodynamics. But that might be changing." says CarScoops: " spy photographers caught a Tesla Model S Plaid lapping the Nürburgring with a retractable wing that also changed its angle throughout the lap. Seen here changing its pitch from one shot to the next, it would appear that Tesla is looking for higher cornering speeds.  The Plaid+ was supposed to get 1,100 hp, a range of more than 520 miles (837 km), and faster acceleration. Just ahead of Plaid's debut, though, Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce that it was so good that the Plaid+ had been canceled."

According to the company's website, another location is coming nearby and it will be equipped with 56 stalls (V3 250 kW). That would increase the total output in the area to 96. According to supercharge.info, bigger stations in the U.S. are at the Harris Ranch (80 stalls), Central Santa Monica (62 stalls) and Firebaugh (56 stalls) - all three in California and both with V3 250 kW chargers. The largest stations in China are in Shanghai with 72 and 64 stalls, but the power is limited to respectively 120 kW and 145 kW."

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Friday 8th 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. REPORT: NIO TO ENTER GERMANY Q4 2022 Matthias Schmidt @auto_schmidt "China's electric car manufacturer, Nio, will enter the German market from Q4 2022, their European spokesperson confirms" AUDI EVS CLOSE TO SAME PROFIT MARGINS AS COMBUSTION "Audi, which accounted for more than a quarter of Volkswagen's first-half operating profit, has embarked on an ambitious shift towards battery-powered vehicles, meaning all new models it will release from 2026 will be fully electric." says Reuters: "Meantime, production of internal combustion engines will be gradually phased out up to 2033. Audi's CFO in August said it would only take 2-3 years before profitability of electric vehicles (EV) would match that of combustion engine cars. [Markus] Duesmann thinks this could happen even more quickly." according to the Audi Chief Executive: "Apart from efforts to challenge Tesla (TSLA.O) and become the biggest seller of EVs, Volkswagen, the world's No.2 carmaker, is also doubling down on efforts to develop software, which CEO Herbert Diess said is the industry's real gamechanger." Duesmann: ""The point where we earn as much money with electric cars as with combustion engine cars is now, or ... next year, 2023. They are very even now, the prices" https://www.reuters.com/business/autos-transportation/audi-ceo-sees-chip-shortage-perfect-storm-will-get-through-it-2021-10-04/ 144,000 ID.3 ORDERS RECEIVED – 50 PERCENT FROM NEW VOLKSWAGEN CUSTOMERS Strong performance of the all-electric Volkswagen ID.3 after its first year in the European market.  By the end of September, the car had already been ordered around 144,000 times in Europe – 50 percent of buyers had not driven a Volkswagen before and were new to the brand, found a study commissioned by the company. For comparison: On average, the ratio of new customers for other Volkswagen models is around 36 percent. In the first half of 2021, the strong demand for the ID.3 and other ID. models made Volkswagen the market leader for battery-electric vehicles in Europe within a very short time. In August, the car was the most popular electric car in many markets including Germany, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Austria and Switzerland. Based on new registrations, the ID.3 also ranked top in Western Europe overall in August. In order to meet the strong demand, some 1,200 of the best-selling electric cars are leaving the production lines in Zwickau and Dresden every day, with Zwickau operating three shifts on both production lines. Moreover, production for the local market has started in Anting in China – the car will be launched on the Chinese market in the fall of this year.

Our spies just sent us the first photos of what appears to be the facelifted E-Tron in its coupe-like Sportback version wearing some camouflage that shows us where the manufacturer made changes." says InsideEVs: "Looking through the photos, we notice that the front end of the vehicle is getting a completely revised fascia, along with new headlights, a new bumper and new grille (most of which was hidden but it does look different). Audi also added camouflage that extends back onto the front fenders and side skirts, so we presume there are some changes hiding under there as well. We're expecting to see the updated Audi E-Tron Sportback (as well as the more traditional non-Sportback model) debut sometime next year; in the US they will be sold as 2023 model-year and it looks like the model's popularity has been increasing in the second quarter of 2021."

The company is therefore launching a recruitment drive with the aim of employing more than 280 people by the end of 2021." says electrive: "Currently, Volta Trucks says it has over 150 employees, up from a “handful” at the beginning of the year. Volta is currently looking for industrial and commercial experts, but above all for “talented and forward-thinking engineers”. Seventy positions have been advertised." Earlier in September, Volta Trucks had announced that series production of the Zero would start at Steyr Automotive in Austria. The first examples are to be used in pilot fleets in Paris and London."

There are high expectations for the new Kia electric crossover that has finally made its way to Norway. " says Wataha.no: "awaiting the cars. As planned, the first cars will be delivered at the end of October. There are also demonstration cars on board for many dealers. So some customers will be able to book a test drive soon. Later this year, there will be more such vehicles to more dealers."

Now, days into the fourth quarter, Tesla has continued the earlier trend of price increases on the Model 3 and Model Y." writes The Street.com: "Model 3 Standard Range Plus increased by $2,000 to $41,990. Model 3 Performance increased by $1,000 to $57,990. Model Y Long Range increased by $1,000 to $54,990. Model Y Performance increased by $1,000 to $61,990. Due to Tesla's order backlog, it's likely that Q2 did not reflect the full impact of those price changes. Investors may get an even better understanding when Tesla reports third quarter earnings, expected on Monday, October 25th." We started the year with a SR+ costing $37,990. That's $4000 more, and $5000 more for Model Y Long Range. https://www.thestreet.com/tesla/news/tesla-has-raised-prices-again-here-are-the-changes-tsla MODEL Y MADE IN CHINA GETS 28 MILE RANGE BOOST  " The Model Y made in China for the local market gets a range increase of up to 28 miles while keeping the same purchase price. According to the company's Chinese website, spotted by @ray4tesla/Twitter, the manufacturer has increased the range of Model Y Long Range and Model Y Performance while car prices have remained the same." says Tesmanian: "Model Y for overseas markets is also expected to receive an increase in range. Tesla recently registered several new Model Y variants, including an export version. There is a possibility that this is the variant with the increased range, in accordance with the updates for Model Y in China." But is it more range, or more reported range? Is it a change to the NEDC testing standards? And WLTP/WLTC should start soon in China.  Could it be a change from the 4.6Ah LG Chem 2170 cells to the 5.0Ah LG Chem cells, so the total pack goes from 75->81kWh? https://www.tesmanian.com/blogs/tesmanian-blog/tesla-model-y-made-in-china-gets-28-mile-range-increase-while-maintaining-the-same-price TESLA IS BUILDING MODEL Y BODIES WITH SINGLE FRONT AND REAR CASTINGS "In an auto manufacturing first, Tesla has started building Model Y bodies with two giant single casting pieces for the front and back of the electric SUV. Tesla has already been producing the Model Y with a single rear body piece that replaced 70 different parts in the vehicle." says electrek: Earlier this year, a picture of the first single front casting part of the Model Y produced at Gigafactory Texas leaked. Tesla has been wanting to go a step further and joined those two parts with a structural battery pack powered by its new 4680 battery cells unveiled last year. However, the automaker has lately indicated that the integration of the new cells and structural battery pack might not be introduced with the start of Model Y production at the new factories." https://electrek.co/2021/10/05/tesla-building-model-y-bodies-single-front-rear-castings-manufacturing-first FIRST LOOK AT RIVIAN'S “SENTRY MODE” GEAR GUARD FEATURE IN ACTION (VIDEO) "If Tesla owners have Sentry Mode, Rivian owners will have Gear Guard for security. Recently, a Gear Guard buddy was spotted actively working in a seemingly parked Rivian vehicle. " says Teslarati: "A short clip from Twitter user @D_Love revealed Rivian's rather kid-friendly Gear Guard buddy at work while the vehicle's owner is away. The character captured in the short clip was also seen in a Rivian video posted last month. According to Rivian's Director of UX Design Brennan Boblett, owners can activate a suite of security products through Gear Guard.  Gear Guard seems to be an umbrella term for a list of security features. It will most likely use Driver+ hardware installed in all R1 Rivian vehicles, which includes 11 cameras, 12 ultrasonic sensors, five radars, and a high-precision GPS antenna. Rivian has not fully discussed Gear Guard's suite of security features in detail yet." https://www.teslarati.com/rivian-tesla-sentry-mode-gear-guard-video/ NEW QUESTION OF THE WEEK WITH EMOBILITYNORWAY.COM Returned on Sunday 10th October!
