"One of the official cars of the Tokyo Olympics. It also runs on the universe's most abundant element. Hydrogen. Freelance auto journalist Roberto Baldwin says hydrogen cars used electric motors powered by a fuel cell filled with hydrogen. The generation of electricity happens because of a chemical reaction within the vehicles. Self and that's generation generating the electricity that powers the vehicle and filling up the car with hydrogen only takes a few minutes, not hours. Like some TVs. You're getting the sort of immediate C of refilling a gas vehicle with these hydrogen vehicles. But also you're getting that feel good feeling, and also, it's better for the environment of an electric vehicle. But there are drawbacks to the technology. Essentially, there's no gas stations for hydrogen cars. There's there's nowhere to refuel them unless you live in these very Specific geographic areas with check trends.

Fresh update on "electric" discussed on Airplane Geeks Podcast
"You saw. Hey they're giving away money for people who can solve a problem. Let's go try to solve it and see how we do and obviously did very well. Why do you think you want like what's why did you come up with this design. And why do you think you won the competition with this design coming from completely not aviation background which i will point out is not unusual for people outside an industry to come up with the disruptive technologies and solutions. That's very that's normal. Congratulations for proving that right. But what do you think. Why do you think you one so the prize. Winning designs not this so we have pretty model. That's more a apostles whole bike and window on that. And i think we won't because we had that not much background but we sink about from the prince of fast principal and rebuild the as ground up and he was that initial sync and that was like a more imagine imaginary sink and realize the tarrant gathered a talented people and we could build concept and fry it. So i think that was Reason we want so that was more maserati seeing but y able to build because we gather the talented people and by such a great team could be one that price. I love the validation of the whole innovation ecosystem where they start out with a prize. You build something that is mostly An idea and then because you won you're able to turn that idea into something real. That's based on just the initial concept the initial concept was not what you're obviously going to commercialize but it gave you a boost to commercialization from from winning the prize. Which was just to demonstrate the technology that would be disruptive and here. It is proving you right. What are your immediate goals you. You said you wanna get experimental 's certification or not really the right word but you want to build an actual experimental aircraft next and then after that. What's what comes up next. We wanted to sell this aircraft as a kit playing for next year After the got gotta certification and the certified in if an advocate laced then afterwards we wanna try to make it a part twenty three certification for domestic production or depending on conditions light sport aircraft. And we wanted to sell this. Erica from customers who are willing to participate in the service or only sarath and all the people who are interested in our aircraft is the first aircraft can be a single pilot single user or is it going to be like basically what we see here or is it going to be multiple like one pilot plus a passenger or it was the first aircraft that you want to certify kit. I really willing to make it as a single seat because in hand the full tunnels flight. There's no need to have a pilot for passengers. So we designed a single seat aircraft at focusing on but it depending on customer's request we can make two seaters for a town aligned way to produce there's customers will that's great. Let's get into some of the things that people might use it experience. How far how high how fast. How much time in the air. Those those are the things that whenever et whenever anybody. Here's battery powered electric motors. That they all wanna know. What kind of batteries. How long does it take the charge. How long does it last. How far can i go. Those are the obvious questions that if you don't have good enough answers you're no one's gonna buy you know to fly around their their their own house. So what what kind of what can you tell us about. The expected performance parameters the range will be one hundred mile and free time is one hour and cruise cruising speed will be one hundred mph. That's enough right so that sounds pretty square. One hundred one hundred one hour okay. And how long will it take. Charge the batteries to do that. One hour do you think right now so right now it's about two or three hours to.
What the Infrastructure Deal Means for Energy
"I'm David Brancaccio. Good morning to you. There is now a bill crafted to spend nearly a trillion dollars on infrastructure in America. And while it could pass into law that is not a foregone conclusion. The bill, drafted by a bipartisan team working over the weekend was unveiled last night. It isn't quite 3000 pages long and amendments are expected. Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer expects a vote within quote a matter of days. Beyond the roads and bridges. Let's look at cleaner energy products there in buses. Hydrogen power charging stations for electric cars. Marketplaces Amanda FEATURE has more on that. Before installing a new electric car charging station. Jonathan Levy says his company Vico needs to know there's plenty of demand. We don't want to overbuild the charging infrastructure and not have the vehicles to be using it. That's where those federal dollars would come in to pay for new charging stations in, say, rural communities. Paul Bledsoe with the Progressive Policy Institute says that new infrastructure would also get more EVs on the road. That's really the only thing holding back people from buying electric vehicles now is concerns over charging the bill. Also funds pilot projects like carbon capture, but it doesn't do as much for more mature, clean energy technology. Abigail Ross Hopper is with the Solar Energy Industries Association. We had our time in the sun as a niche kind of science experiment, but that's over and what Ross Hopper says the solar industry needs to do now is deploy. Deploy, deploy. What would help get more solar panels out there, she says, are permanent tax
Podcast Excerpt from Led Zeppelin - "Achilles Last Stand"
"So in september of nineteen seventy five robert plant still in a wheelchair joined jimmy page in southern california to write some new songs bass player john. Paul jones and drummer. John bonham would join them not long after once. They finished rehearsing most of the material in california. The band then relocated to music land studios in munich germany to record the album in november. The challenge was that the rolling stones had already booked the same studio for december. Which left led zeppelin with about two weeks to record the whole album. Jimmy page who not only played all of the guitar parts but also wrote virtually all of the music and produced. The album was working eighteen to twenty hours a day on it in the end they ran out of time. And jimmy had to ask mick jagger for two more days. In the studio to finish up jagger gave him the two days and jimmy page almost by himself recorded all of the overdubbed seven songs worth in one single night. And then jimmy. An engineer keith. Harwood mixed the whole album. The next day the album would be named presence and it was released in march of nineteen. Seventy six robert plant described this struggle to make the presence album as our stand against everything our stand against the elements against chance. We were literally fighting against existence itself. Unlike every other led zeppelin album. There are almost no acoustic instruments on presence at all. No keyboards no mandolins or recorders. No acoustic ballads. This is an album dominated by jimmy page's electric guitar wizardry and achilles last stand may be the pinnacle of his guitar playing and arranging genius achilles. Last stand is the first track on the album opening the record with a slow fade in on jimmy. Page's guitar played on his legendary gibson. Les paul nicknamed number one. The part is doubled and then panned left and right almost imperceptibly in the background there. You can hear john. Bonham hit a few notes on a symbol and with one hit of a snare drum into the song.

Near Death Experiences
"To be clear. Pam's heart and brain were both stopped. She was d- di dead. The plan was when the surgery was finished. They would warm pam's body up to regular alive person temperature and then do the shock paddle thingies to restart her heart like jumping a dead car engine. There were molded ear. Buds in pants ears playing clicks decimal level of a jackhammer or jet. Engine taking off that way. If any part of pam's brain registered the sound it would appear on the monitor and they would know that brain activity was not all the way dead and look. I'm no brain surgeon. So i don't know what happens when the patient you're working on is supposed to be dead. And then isn't like they're about to cut out the aneurysm. And then all the sudden the monitor shows brain activity. What do you do be like. I guess she's not dead enough. Why anyone goes into. This line of work is beyond me. But i applaud you as pam later reports as the surgery is beginning pam. Dear lifeless pam. Here's the drill. Turn on its buzz coming out like a natural d. The doctor or nurse by her legs reported that the artery was too small. I don't know if you know this but apparently they go through your legs to get to your brain during surgery. I may have mentioned before that. I'm not a surgeon. Another doctor says to try the other leg pam then says she popped out of herself through her had she could see twenty doctors in the room which seems like an immense number of people. But i don't know how brain surgery works. She looked down on the scene and could see the tray with the drill. Bits and the drill itself which she said looked like the handle of her electric toothbrush. That's when she was pulled toward the bright white light as she stepped into the light. Her dead grandmother greeted her pam wondered to herself if she deserve to be there. She wasn't a perfect person. She thought i'm not sure how she knew where there was. But i imagine if you're dead and you're walking toward a bright light. It's a good guests. You're in heaven and her grandmother said as a child. We expected that you would spill your milk. It's the manor which you clean it up. That gives us cause for pride

Is California Overusing the Flex Alert System?
"As California summers get hotter. State officials are trying to avoid putting a strain on the state's electric did and they're offering issuing flex alerts. But as KCRW's Tara a tree on reports, Californians appear to be getting tired of the heat. And the state's pleased to conserve energy. When temperatures hit the triple digits. Many things can go wrong for the state's energy grid, and that heightens the risk of rolling blackouts for consumers. In the past California was successful at convincing people to voluntarily conserve energy by complying with flex alerts. Consumers are often asked to do things for a short period of time, like keeping the thermostat above 78 degrees, turning off unnecessary lights and holding off on using big appliances for a couple of hours, But there's a growing sense that the state is over using the Flex alert system. The tool was used just around 20 times between 2000 and nine and 2019. But so far this year, the state has already issued flex alerts five times and, according to Politico, Californians are already showing signs of fatigue. Demand for electricity didn't drop at all on July 9th or 10th. Despite to flex alerts, it did dip a little on the 12th when temperatures were slightly cooler. And that bodes poorly for future heatwaves. Experts safe Californians are unable to conserve energy. Higher electricity

Alabama SEC Football Predictions for 2021
"Feel like discussions of national championship should be perfect segue when we looked to break down the defending champion from season ago and paint. I don't think it'll surprise anybody. When you look at alabama fan duel sportsbook there less than two to one to win the national title there an overwhelming favorite to come out of the sec west at minus four fifty. And when you look at their win total. It's eleven and a half shaded to the younger. Of course we know that the most electric offense that we've seen in tuscaloosa will not bring back a lot of their key. Playmakers nausea harris and of course devante smith taking their talents to the nfl combining for fifty five touchdowns last year. Mack jones get gone of course as well. But it's rare if you're a team in college football you bring in two former. Nfl head coaches and bill. O'brien and doug marrone to help pass the baton to the next heir-apparent embrace young under center. I don't know how much they're actually going to do. Or how much you actually want him to do. Listen nick listen. Nick and hope that they can keep players on the straight narrow that are collecting seven figure paydays at least on the books under an i l. arrangements compared to Bitcoin trust and everything else. They used to collect in the past the one thing with alabama that they've adhered to under this offensive. Change the last few years is that our offense is not changing. If you're coming into the sabin rehab program you're going to adapt to our offense or guys aren't constantly learning new systems and it seemed work but when i look at alabama's dominant they've been with nick. Sabin the only one back to back championships wants it. Feels like with his system. Continuity plays a large role.

Six players drafted in the first twenty four picks five on offense and totally replacing three starters along the line to starting receivers a tight end and a quarterback and it's not just the players four offensive assistance. Four offense of analysts. They've all moved on. So alabama's offense is gonna regress. That is not a question. It's happening the real question for me. Is how large dip.

Tesla Shares Realistic Update on Semi Rollout
"All right so. Let's take a look at this tesla semi report. This is from electric this morning. Headline reads tesla semi truck is finally about to go into production just for a couple items of context here. The last official communication we got from tesla on the semi was in q. Earnings report back in late. April tesla said that tesla semi deliveries will also begin in twenty twenty one. So that's the last. We've heard from tesla but electric also reported in march that tussle was building a production line for the semi at gigi. Nevada intending to produce about five semis per week by the end of the year. Now tesla hasn't officially disclosed where they are going to produce the semi in volume at on their latest annual capacity update and the earnings report. Also they said that the semi location is still tvd but the prevailing thought seems to be that it will start at giga nevada with this early stage production the learn from that and then eventually make the semi in texas anyway back to the electric report. The new information here is that quote now sources familiar with the matter. Total electric that the drive axle production line is ready and the general assembly line is going through. Its final debugging before starting production and quote so. That's a nice update to here on continued progress for the semi in terms of timeline information. I'm not sure that gives us a whole lot that we didn't already know. I think that probably still just puts them on track for a few deliveries this year. So at expect when we get the cue to shareholder letter on monday. It'll probably just maintain that same line of tesla deliveries expected to begin this year. And that's probably all the information that we're going to get although maybe they'll talk about it on the earnings call.

Fulltime zinc phosphate. Coating is a pretty impressive feat though for company yet to deliver a single customer vehicle. Veon -til the one s up towards evolution in the show notes right headlines stories today from ultimate news year of jockeying landrover is close to announcing plans to source batteries for their vase from the uk. The co new cotr towed financial times. Check your landrover. Taking control of key. Parts like micro processes and indeed batteries as they overhaul less supply chain that police sends shivers up the spine of anyone in the supply chain. He told the financial times well news. You're reporting the blurry telling the t. That batteries will be as critical in the future as engine making is today and the your land rover is exploring all possibilities by batteries for their release. You know my opinion. And i'm not the one signing checks but the tighter control you have the more vertically integrated you have on your supply chain even going back to the mine. I'm serious going to put you in a much better position. Batteries of the new goals without batteries. We haven't got and it's not as easy as just going to the marketplace. Buying some off the shelf because the marketplace is still figuring itself out for a start and many have followed tesla in many cases going right back to the mind but certainly making their own batteries from cells. They buy oil many cases buying their own or building their own cells and building their own gigafactory to make them see. Vw well sourcing. Batteries from uk based plum is favorite scenario at jog. Your landrover outing the companies in final discussions with a handful of battery manufacturers about pond. Location the jugular brand goes all electric from twenty twenty-five landrover making sixty percent of sales zero emissions by twenty thirty. That seems late to me to go six out of ten days by the year. Twenty thirty doesn't seem ambitious enough. Hey once again. I'm not the one signing the paychecks to keep the payroll running late. Do what they're going to jack. You're landrovers only full electric model. Spa the jagua. I pay stunning car. Had one from a month from onto last year. will continue for several years. They'll be new derivatives but it won't be replaced the j. the range rover and the land rover defender will at some point. Get old electric versions. But he wouldn't say when linked towards european show nights next national grid of the first major. Us utility to commit to going electric in their fleet vehicles. National grid is electrifying. Six thousand vehicles in the uk in the us and by the white. We had graham cooper From the national grid on the podcast last saturday at you haven't listened. Go back listening in the archive because it's a fascinating saturday. Special interview runs almost an hour. He's a super brain and explain it in layman's terms. It's a rescue now. National grades which is electrifying. Almost three thousand of that fleet in the uk and the same again in the us instills charging sites in the uk. And we'll add three thousand charges for that. Fleets vehicles and fourteen hundred points already deployed in the us national grid also joining the ev one hundred initiative and becoming the first major us utility to commit to going electric and their fleet rights next green car dot com website. They say the utility operates fifty. That's five oh medium and heavy duty electric five not pure electric electrified vehicles while replacing the company passenger cows with puree via running trials of electric construction equipment and electrified bucket trucks. Okay note to self off. The podcast giggle was an aerial bucket. Truck is but it sounds intriguing. Right coming off the coming up on the podcasts. Saying we'll be looking at the type of people buying eve as why tessler in china are launching energy storage solutions and the us government confirming the bleeding. Obvious stick around now. Let's talk about battery swapping any us e. n. n s. any awesome ample partnering to launch battery swapping service. It's a us-based stocks up in which is also an investor an ample believe strongly in battery swapping that collaboratively launching battery swapping in of all places japan and doing it with a robot subtle. Go down well with the japanese. According to engine technology international dot com websites through the collaboration by companies going to develop energy delivery service freebies by creating a battery swapping station to provide a fast and convenient way of changing batteries at an effective price. Point they say with renewable energy becoming increasingly important battery swapping stations will also be used. As a large stationary battery themselves is contributes to optimization of energy utilize a equalization and the batteries can be used as an emergency power source. The way i think about battery storage if you have anything. This works in countries where there's a lot of infrastructure like norway. All people out living in large built up areas in other words. They have all fried parking on josh venite but if you live in a built up area look the cities in china by trooping. Really really popular hasn't really taken off anywhere else yet. Might work in japan if you haven't got off road parking or it's not convenient to install charging way your own lives overnight aka or work when it's not moving battery swapping can work pretty well and the reasons that it's great is because if you have a battery swap station that's holding maybe twenty. Thirty fifty batteries. That in itself is a big energy store and also those batteries never get dc false charged because they come out of your car in theory empty. They go on charge in the battery staw station on. Ac slow charging three or seven kilowatts. Whatever they charge often slowly overnight when the grid is cleaner and cheaper and then go back another car that makes the batteries last longer. Great for battery health great for charging costs as well and avoid utah. Coming up to a dc false charging station whacking in one hundred and fifty two hundred two hundred and fifty kilowatts of power massive cooling going into that as well premature aging the battery. When you do stuff lot of energy with internal resistance in batteries it might a lot of sense in many ways even though so many people doubt battery swapping will have a takeoff. Let's talk about the type of people who buy electric vehicles all of the fifteen thousand davies made by south korean carmakers and sold in south korea last year in two thousand and twenty people in their fifties with the biggest purchasers according to accounting for about twenty percent of all sales site in south korea. This research was done finding out those with a bit more disposable income than later in life lakes in career I've got the money to buy electric vehicles. Twenty percent of all sales. According to data from korea automobile manufacturers association going.

"It's going to reduce the sailing. Time between portsmouth and franz from five hours again pompey. Franz is not the most the reef you're going to get to the from the uk to the eu you had to dover and that is the shortest crossing in terms of the narrowest of the english channel is the bit where the tunnel that goes underneath as well. Let's the shortest crossing. But like i've got Condor ferries. hey where. I'm in pool. They got onto jazzy and guns and simpson is. Obviously one of the country's biggest ports and portsmith is a big seafaring city as well. Now see gliders being developed using technology known as wing in ground and it's the reason why battery powered boats could work involves riding on a cushion of air you trump the of between the wing and the surface of the water. Like how an aircraft. A hovercraft renzo. That's the best wreckage describe. It says sci-fi focus magazine. The top speed is one hundred and eighty miles per hour. Minimum powell is needed because you reducing the friction between the boat and the water so here we are battery power. We're told batteries and no good for boats and planes and you need to hydrogen. And it's never going to do it with the battery rather than thinking about just putting batteries in the existing going. Actually what about if we use this technology which is established already but we scale up and we have this technology working on battery power. All of a sudden we've got five zero emission marine transport in badly needed at preity pretty dirty pot of the the english channel around here. You can take the diesel in the water. It is I think isn't the english channel. The world's busiest shipping line as in. It's very very narrow and very busy on. Let's talk about the world's most powerful electric outboard motor pushing for a wealth speed record back in may vision. Marine technologies opened reservations for the electric emotion. It's the one. Eight t outboard motor. Now get vermilion outboard motors. Because i live down by apollo local pool. Where there's lots of marinas hit. I see lots of people using that boats at the weekend. Lot of a couple of my neighbors have their boats in the driveways A lot of them are mold. So again i although i i do a very small bits of sailing i am. I spend a bit of time down by the coast and the smell of those outboard motors and just any boats when they're moving. You got to look at these wonderful craft imagining something like this and then and then you smell them and you go well that stinks the electric one. It is the world's most powerful electric outboard and it could soon become the fastest teaming up with a miami company. The hell cats the powerboats in an effort to push all electric power to one.

"They expect to hit fifty five percent by twenty thirty and that's leading into one of the stories. We'll talk about later on the podcast and something. I've talked about lots over the years. California the e u. China all of them things with the rules and rigs which means that. Evf option has happened to a different pace than if you'd left up to market forces now a big fan of leaving things up to market forces because we know even as an only better but also cheaper to run and then when i tell people about electric call drive one i talk about my running costs to them. They're like well. That makes more sense right. So i don't need to do the hard sell on ebay as an than if you are. The same people just tend to discover them and go visa fall better and then they buy one but they do need at times subsidies incentives and indeed the lawmakers to make sure that they are pushing things along one of the things that the e u did walls put co two emissions rules in place and that meant that the comic has had to hit a certain level of co two emissions across the entire fleet of cars that they salt now by doing that. They forced the hand of the car. Makers now again. You can argue amongst yourselves whether it is a good or bad thing us. The thing i've slightly biased. But we'll get onto a story about that a little bit but that would be amazing. Twenty thirty sixty percent reduction twenty thirty five. A hundred percent reduction aka emissions free would be amazing and because the eu is such a big market. Like when i talk about the united states in the us and china as well if you're gonna make a cough or sutton market you might as well sell everywhere. There's no point being a hold out so that will also lead onto another story. We're talking about today. I though we'll talk about vw's electrify america doing dale with mercedes benz in the usa electrify america announcing an agreement with mercedes benz to provide drivers of the s. Of course the top end s class equivalent complimentary charging two years electrify america. Not quite the same. As the deals we've seen with the id full though and the vw deals because includes thirty minutes of charging per session. I wonder if you can just unplug and plugging again for another thirty minutes. I wonder how many ecus owners even need free charging the point is it removes friction and it makes things easy. You now johnson. Your use your first thirty minutes..

"Years. Ilan repeatedly gave him responsibility for major construction sites in the company. And now he's left already. And i mentioned this because any has he so senior but when other senior people have left like gb travel he was the former cto. The chief technology officer i believe was his title of not looked up but sunny when he left. There was a handover that was organized and hr called drew. You may have seen on stage at battery. You kind of if you watch that and noted out like i did. He was already being groomed lined up with making appearances on earnings kohl's his profile is being increased whereas jerome has already left the company. Unlike a fine for a song and dance. I kind of you know we wish him. Well it was just the statement that they had to make for financial reasons. And so it's super wit. It's odd stuff like this happens. I hope everything's okay with the semi truck project. The forty six eighty cells which of that new big sell. The tesla are gonna make themselves no other people like panasonic and the can make as well but they can't do cyber truck without them because the new roads to an semi truck because the specs they promised on stage at the time. When nasa chief -able and everyone well some people didn't realize that but elon. Musk will make a statement about something coming in the future knowing. They can't do it now but he looks at the roadmap and goes actually. I'm confident we'll get that will announce it now we'll say six hundred miles roadster and bub-bubba. We it's impossible but we think we can do it one day. So that's just the way they have always worked and they and they nine times out of ten they make as well they pull it off so but this is kind of really interesting so watch it and we hope everything's okay with commercial. Trucking at tesla. Because he's really important if you know if they're not going to lead the way the somebody else does but hopefully they will show the world that you can move goods without burning stinky horrible poisonous diesel and we could do it with electric power at fingers crossed everything going okay. With lots of bits of the vehicles to make the batteries The cells which the factories as the charging protocol as well as. They're gonna have mega charges but will they use their own standard or a worldwide standard based on the ccs. of course that policy group co-chairing here in europe which is moving forward with agreeing and that he kind of ccs body It'd be great if there was a worldwide commercial trucking plug. It just makes things easier when everything is the same and it helps the rollout around the world. It means we can move quick hype super hopeful that all those things are still in had talking. A few tesla stories that that china might vehicles have surged in may after a massive drop in april and people couldn't quite work out why they sold thirty three and a half thousand china-made electric cars in may and that includes the exports low thirty percent jump almost from april and according to the china passenger car association today and reported by roy. China's new electric convict hundred seventy seven percent in may from a year earlier but of course cove it usual. Caution needed overall passenger vehicle. Sales rose just one percent so passenger salads. A fly electric siles through the roof in china. Talking tesla model three and they y in shanghai gigafactory exposing eleven and a half thousand of them and in april they had a terrible number and people couldn't quite work. Yeah there was. Some there was a model. Y was shut down for a period of time but couldn't quite work out. Why people thinking. Oh is it the bad publicity. They had in china. But it's bounced back. It's not a record number But there's a lot of exports as well which leads me onto the next story. The largest ever australian shipment of tesla's has arrived in port campbell. New south wales. I don't know it. It sounds exotic concert. You live near port campbell. Eli does not exotic according to well informed boat tracking service veda prime 'bout one thousand five hundred model threes to end up in china scoured vice dot com dot. Au well tesla does not release its sales data figures obtained by car advice. Show the old electric brand delivered. Three and a half thousand vehicles daesh So local customers throughout twenty twenty based on those results. The most recent shipment equates to all my six months worth of stock more than the company has ever had to deal with in australia. A public show nights. If you'd like to read more by moving on and we'll talk about expanding. Their battery plans in berlin. new construction. permits have gone in for their facilities outside of berlin. We call a giga berlin. But it's a long way out of berlin notably of battery factory back in april with a put the plans into have their battery production us. All gigafactory are gonna make the bachelor the cells the batteries. The 'cause all in one place. According to w dot com given the scope of the changes brandenburg's ministry of agriculture environment and climate has got to decide whether to involve the public and consultation. I gut feeling imagine they will. The licensing authorities said today that following criticism ashley of environmental groups. Tesla also wants to introduce various measures to reduce water consumption to be better for the environment. What's a consumption still expected to be one point. Four million cubic meters a year. I it's a lot of water. I guess it's over a year and tesla doing all they can to get those permits through still being built by the way the factory the older the facility with temporary permits and taking a bit of a flyer i mean ultimately they could have to take the whole thing down clearly. That's not going to happen. Let's move to move on and talk about electric parcel. Delivery access is going to supply seven hundred and fifty vans to dpd dakota uk and they are big parcel company. A here in the uk at an f. d. r. your water worldwide. But certainly a lot of my amazon parcels and up with dpd and his great. I've not had too many of their electric vans. You know where i am. I'm not in a major city. Not in the sticks. The so i would make perfect sense. I've seen some of their roots of online or people have people have posted online. Kind of you know. How many stops they have to do today for. Ups or amazon over dpd and his life is pretty crazy. How many stops these guys and gals do deliver parcels these days but the duck the route is planned out so they know how much energy they will need the weather. The air conditioning the terrain The consumption so you can pretty accurately predict with fleets how much battery size you need. And it's not always as much as you think. Dpd has bought five hundred of the deliver nines and two hundred and fifty of the deliver threes increasing that electric fleets fifteen hundred calls evan's commercial fleets dot org. Max's begin taking begins taking orders now for the deliver three which is a compact van last year. And they've got to battery options on that thirty five and fifty two kilowatt hours like assay always as big as you think that is a range of between one hundred hundred and fifty miles and the deliver nine. They're bigger one has a range of two hundred and nineteen miles and as Up to two hundred and nineteen. I should say fifty five. Seventy two or eighty eight point five kilowatt hours on the battery. Pack sizes okay. Moving on and let's talk about the electric starts up lordstown and a lot of positive news miss podcast but occasionally we can't always be positive Looks like they might not make it. Lordstown i'm to revive the shutter. Gm plant in ohio science day in a financial filing that. They may have to close that doors. According to the times the company The new york times. I should say the company which was once held up as a savior by donald. Trump is now being investigated by the s. e. c. and regulatory filing. They said they would not be able to begin. Commercial scale production One of a dozen startups the of gone public with these special purpose. Acquisition companies like reverse mergers spikes that called. And some of them. Well some not so well but now they have substantial doubt regarding their ability to continue as a going concern is legal speak four. We might not make it but aside news if everyone working that we wish him the best of course next a on the energy company e on has launched an electric vehicle salary sacrifice schemes. Uk story. that makes my works. Maybe it's similar to where you are listening around the world if you're not uk listener following its company division Kind of electric in two thousand. Nineteen this new scheme created by a on a lease company could lex enables non-company drivers to still access an electric car and go green if you want to through a on drive. It's code salary sacrifice. In other words. I wanna get into the weeds of it Before you get taxed by the government you can give up a portion of your money and it's always good if you can give some of your before it gets taxed you sacrifice. Your salary is good salary. Sacrifice on its way. The tax efficient way of spending money on an ev through a company scheme company needs to offer this scheme allow employees allows employees to benefit from reduced income tax national insurance contributions.

Been a bit worried. Recently about reynaud. John soon be falling in love with the leaf. The hour is delayed again. What's coming from reynaud will now. We have some positive news from them. The production ready car has been shown off is in camouflage. But that's because they're going to be driving thirty of these around the world for testing and validation purposes proportions of this very similar to the area. That's an suv using the same platform the c. m. f. e. platform and the power train reynaud confirming the concept Like the persian e w eight by the way which has a two hundred and fifteen horsepower. Motor and sixty kilowatt hours of battery. This call will be good for two hundred and eighty miles so again. Reynaud nissan mitsubishi alliance out of really early lead with the lifan. Zoe and i feel that they just took a polls and they can steps forward again. Now we're gonna get the aria on the roy that's been delight. Am i gonna get this car on the road mcgann. Really big name Sunny here anyway. In terms of a long standing name the people are familiar with and would like to by nissan saying owners of their electric vehicles traveling to a three hundred and nine hundred miles all mole it compared to that diesel and petrol cars the average electric vehicle use of traveling six hundred thirty kilometers. That's three hundred ninety miles mauri. Gm cars with combustion engines according to their research reported by this money which says a poll of seven thousand motorists across europe and the eu so uk franz jemmy netherlands spain italy norway sweden denmark asking them. How many miles. I did not including year so covid yet really that they discounted that and drivers of petrol and diesel cars saying they didn't goes bust those. That's dr petrol and diesel. Cars were asked what would make you driving. Thirty eight percent said the biggest pull factor is more range and again it's interesting perception. You and i know that. Go far enough but those that don't drive even the perception out there in the wider world as it were and the reason. I do this podcast that hopefully you share it with someone. Who's curious curious. May we teach people a few things. We know that you can go off when people worked out. It's fine but they still think when they're living in petrol world that's vs donkey far enough by said that that would make them switch. A third said easy. Charging would help them. Make the leap and again you. And i know charging fine problem bouts for ninety five ninety nine percent of people as obviously some avian that want to do certain journeys in certain places in certain conditions where the charge infrastructure. Isn't there yet or not reliable. But you know we get in there. But i think the most people charging is probably okay with vs. Okay let's move on and talk about the final story today. A oven low-speed evita car segments. Having a moment in china at least there's a ten foot long mini car called the ruling kwang hongguang mini. And we're talking about it. Occasionally is made by general motors and that chinese pundits. Saic and others as well and once again that topping the monthly charts in in china two hundred and fifty thousand in total sales makes it the best selling electric vehicle in china and its tiny outperforms tesla's model three says green bay's young families buying into the car because it's five grand so it's cheap thousand dollars equivalent. I should say. Us always equivalent so it's cheap easy to drive tiny. You can talk charge anywhere ubiquitous in places like the city of how if i how i And it's got charges everywhere for this little thing You can often get free. Parking and free charging in some places in china and along with china. European cities have been eager to support these small vehicles. Pint-sized vehicles they call them for urban living. Major european automakers haven't embraced it the way that chinese automakers have. What do you think. I'm not so i'm not convinced like i don't know i want to see the safety specs of some of these cars and things like that. That I'm not doubting china. I'm just brands. The i know the. I've gotten their experience. You wanna make sure that they are. You know say these very small cars. If you hit by anything in these tiny little things that you wanna make sure that you're safe. They i hope they and fantastic that it gets people into an electric vehicle. Sometimes the small eve as whether they got three whales a full whales were great solution.

So now he's taking on the biggest adventure of a lifetime and something. Nobody's actually ever done before driving an electric vehicle from pole to pole driving from the south pole to the north pole. Over twelve thousand seven hundred miles. It's a drive. That will require a very special evi to handle extreme temperatures found at the poles but also the hot temperatures as he crosses the equator. I'm joined today of my friend. Nicholas ray i e v nick as we jointly interview. Chris about this epic adventure. Enjoy this evening. We're going to talk about your next question which you have kept so close to your chest. Eight for a while. you've not said anything. Then you've said. I've got something in the works. But i don't jinx. I'm just looking at talk about it and then eventually you're able to say. How long has this trip being in the in the planning stage and how you can announce it now Well i mean started with this. I mean the map you see behind me is is actually on my wall. This is currently agrees game but is actually my bedroom wall. Many inspiration adventures kind of come from just staring at that map And so pole to pole came by not long afteh. The manga rally and of looking at the next thing. I can do to follow on the educational message around electric vehicles. Despite amiss so ray in a nutshell is being in the planning Shy of four years. And it's it's nearly been announced prior to covid because quite happy to say it's we were we were gonna be nizing prior to the embassy. Cova came cayman. That put a a lotta damper on the works for everybody and obviously this expedition. Doing this kind of stuff is nowhere near important than people's safety and saving lives so No complaints in any way shape or form so But we kind of said right. Okay what do we do now. We can go back to the drawing board. Allowed us to look at other honest New things that we can do an expand on what we were going to be doing this Hold the educational message working with governments and ngos on. Yeah we got to the here thought right now. It's time where things are starting to come out of people's businesses assigned to look at look at sponsoring non.

"But for now the rain still being quoted in any dc three hundred and sixty five miles and two hundred and seventy one miles for the two different battery sizes again a very big car full of technology over the chinese market. And i'm guessing it's probably going to sell rather well that next. We'll talk about tesla dropping lawsuit against a former employee. This is really interesting too big on this. Because it's kind of internal politics. But the chinese av make expon announced. The tesla dropped their lawsuit against one of its former employees. Now the suit was fest followed in twenty nine teen with the northern california. Us district court for theft of ip intellectual property related to autopilot all the autonomous driving systems. That tesla uses not specifically also pilot which the product name they use a former employee. Left tesla went to x. pong and hides Uploaded some files to that personal cloud rather than i gather a work system And also after they resigned. Have a work laptop for A period of time and over the past couple of years. They've been allegations. It'd be for cafeterias a lawsuit. I want Not the receiving end of either of that so But over the last couple of years they'd been allegations that x. peng had somehow stolen tesla autopilot and of course as soon as as soon as elon. Musk weighed in on any topic. Not just this but I can't recall the exact tweets that he says what misquote him The tesla fan base piling is obviously. They must have stolen everything expert expert said. Look you need to follow up on the suits and do something about it. They never made the actual coal company policy to the lawsuit. I need to the individual and there's been a two years of Of extensive work going on and from what i can gather zero substantial evidence to support any allegation or in new endo aimed at the chinese company that full. The suit has been completely dropped. And that's an important thing because we don't want to be talking about things like ip when it comes to chinese companies. It's pretty hot topic. And if you invent something you wanna make sure the credit for it and someone isn't doing anything they shouldn't be and in this case nobody did next. I'll talk about neo presenting the next generation battery swap station chinese evening. Make a neo as unveiled the next gen a battery shopping station You can do three hundred and twelve battery swaps a diet. Which is amazing isn't it. Of course he won't go. It won't suit everywhere in every part of the world. But there's certainly bits of china where battery swapping is really useful. And there's so many benefits to as well like you just pull up an encyc- six or seven minutes. You have a fully charged battery The the batteries wants out of your car can be charged slowly not. Dc repechage is good for health. They can be checked all the cells Checks the battery going into your car is is good. The battery is owned by. Uc's paying a small amount per month to lisa the battery and of course the dimensions. The external dimensions of the same size says battery technologies improved to the battery packs of actually got bigger in capacity. Lots of reasons why it works for them and their doesn't work everywhere is business model But really fascinating. The the they continue to improve. There's those battery swap stations where they done automatically. There's two hundred thirty two hundred and thirty nine cents. I think in each station. And it's a completely kind of self service battery swap you pull in. It's one click and you stay in your car and the system like i say three hundred and twelve battery swaps in a in a in a day. That's really efficient way of of of getting new energy in your even if you can't charge home okay. So the opportunity charging next. We'll talk about bmw. And the x. the i three. I should say which is their electric version of the x three The fos- charging analysis has been done the first version of the x three with its let me get eighty kilowatt hour battery on wwl. Cpi does they give a range to eighty two to eighty five miles as four fifty. Four fifty eight kilometers bmw says that charging to eighty percent takes thirty four minutes now the charging network fast net. A love this. They tend to release charts of what they've seen from people plugging in cars to that charging work. I love it. They share a lot of data the bmw. I extremely strong at one. Hundred and fifty seven kilowatt charge speed. That's really good. Then he steps down in increments rather than being a slow curve as the battery fills up. The speed goes down in terms of the charge. There's big steps which is not how the cell chemistry of of the battery works Cells have a sudden step downing In in power they can take the battery management system. They're doing what is right in the engine in their engineers opinion full maximum efficiency longevity and and charging speed and all kind of things so multiple steps down rather than one nice curve is about tree as the battery Ending about fifty kilowatts might be undoing. Eighty to ninety five percent which you can still really really quick big buffer going on with the x three really interesting to see i thank you for sharing the data and that is your news for today right question of the week. We were talking about on question of the week whether you think av companies need a high profile figure ahead in order to attract attention. Lee brown in scotland says elon. Musk is the master of pr. And that's where tesla don't need a press departments without a loan. The speed of transition to evs and clean energy wouldn't be as quick so love him or them wareham a data gratitude any other. Ceo that would try and copy at. How he operates would be exactly that copycat. Alan does enough for all of them already and shows no sign of slowing down next. We'll talk about rich. In chapel hill. We have enough of a problem with demagoguery in modern society These days just make a wide variety of the cows available. Make them cost-competitive a bunch of pseudo ilan's tossing out verbal hand-grenades fa- clicks doesn't help anything mark. Arca said i think elon. Musk his personality. The vehicles that he's making responsible for creating excitement around vs. However i think other ceos behaving similarly would create skepticism with people more interested in cars as just a practical part of their life. Who are probably the majority of. Cobb is toyota's practicality and sales numbers would be testimony to that raj narayan says we leave linda tie when there are many who would be best south by any who'd i realized that in times like these via doctrine benefits from cheerleaders like an alone. And look at what. Tiger woods did for the popularity of the sport of golf. That being said we don't need every car company..

"That ibm w i. X three gets is charging analyzed. We have the new volkswagen six. Of course your own says to question of the week we'll be revealed. Good morning off evening wherever you're listening in the world. Welcome to abc news daily for sunday. Eighteenth of april. My name is martin li every story. So you haven't got a so. Yeah we'll kick off for that story about ferrari then and for a long time. Ferrari said nope no visa happening. La fingers in is absolutely. Hey you however for are they going to launch their first all electric supercar surprise surprise if they want to stay relevant and so road counts in the future. All comic is going to have to make fully electric cars. The role of petrol in the future is obviously up in the and they one knows where we go motoracing with it. Will it be classic cars. Will that be one or two percent left using fuel. Probably i think the most likely situation but everything in terms of how we get around and have fun. That's going to be electric now. Ferrari writing. I want to be on the market by twenty twenty five which is pretty quick if i've already started in terms of cobb development terms but even then that'd be six years after the porsche tycoon. On the audi e tron gt and the gts of akasa. Very sexy and probably in the same price. point Two days ago the ceo. John elkin revealed news about the first trick. Ferrari at the annual shareholders meeting for decades ferrari rejected the idea of a fully electric supercar says investor's business daily of investors dot com the former c. Who sadly along with us. Sergio cioni declared ferrari ferrari. Ev an almost obscene concepts. Of course we are gone back a couple years. Now i guess when vs one tons of performance wise maybe where they are now but still great news to see a a brand like ferrari adding towards electrification but by twenty twenty five. It's going to be some amazing amazing vs there. The the new lotus which is got those crazy specs as the verena batista. It's gonna say. Many high-performance avis out there. So really looking forward to seeing what he's on the market Sooner or later and the first full electric ferrari. And i do i feel for someone like ferrari who for so long of bill that brian on the theater of a car and a lot of that is the sound and the noise and you know maybe not the vibration suddenly the visceral experience of driving a car and gear changes and things like that. So there's going to be clearly some unhappy people about fully. Electric ferrari now are vs bets. A in every way of course we know that. However it's gonna be a tough sell on some people fully prepared for that spots. We'll wait and see next. We'll talk about chinese firms entering the european market. I spotted an article today The the guardian on sundays called the observer newspaper and it was a mark of respect from the tesla chief. Executive says the observe of that. He has been admiring his competition. The chinese manufacturer neo just made its one hundred thousand electric car and mr. Musk offered his congratulations. Tesla mania and cheap money have pushed market. Valuations are a bunch of comic to astonishing levels as a tesla's value topping eight hundred and thirty billion dollars at six hundred billion pounds in january. It's down but it's still three times the size of something like toyota. The next biggest. Come up but there's chinese rivals the likes of nia ex peng liotta the big names in china wm motor all having a great time and making great vs at the moment. Some of them now. No some of them want to focus on that time. Mock it because there's plenty of sales to go there but some of them do i west and if not the us then at least the european market so can they enter it. That's the discussion. The observer has today up up link in the show notes. If you want to read more about that it's one of our weekend long reads that we'd like to recommend they talk about how well the byu have done. Of course you mentioned byu if you're writing a newspaper article about them without mentioning their investment from warren buffett back in two thousand and eight and also how well tessler of done incidentally and how well. They've conquered china so far they give a big mentioned ex- peng with the sports sedan. The p five guy from As well and those things like the neo eighty seven and the tesla model y. Oh getting lots of praise in this article next We will talk again about one of these fascinating stories to do with. Who's gonna making a vs in the future. we'll be partnerships that we just couldn't dream of right now in terms of the established order. If you like well one thousand five hundred firms worldwide have signed up for hong highs. Av platform a total of fifteen hundred firms of set their sights on making an with an open platform promoted by the taiwanese menu ring manufacturing giant. That could haunt high got hung high precision company known as foxconn in the global market. They've been promoting their own open platform since last year. And so far one thousand. Five hundred hardware and software companies around. The world have participated in development of the platform. And this is something that other people can come along and take the basic bed bones of what they need to build on so the crush structure at the bat tree battery managements and then probably all four corners as well and by that i mean so you know. Wheels breaking suspension As well and and then build on top of that platform and don't underestimate the power of the company that makes the iphone. They know how to put things together next. Accompany that definitely knows how to make. A great is volkswagon on the third model in that. Id family now. The auto show in shanghai which of course is on we all talking about the vw. Id six it joins. The id three and the four in the range. Six is a different beast. It's really big. It's a proper seven seater unless face is designed for the chinese market goes on sale. Later this year in two different versions. There's going to be a coupet styled crawls and there's going to be the six x and that's because vw actually has to companies in china to joint ventures once called as a vw. One is called f. a. w. and they're gonna make different versions of the cop the ceo of the also. I can brand ralph branch that hopefully that correct sir. This i quote with a new. Id six we allowing the foundations. For at least fifty percent of our sales sold in china to be full electric in two thousand thirty we all maintaining momentum and gradually increasing a range of because by twenty by twenty twenty twenty three vw a total of eight id monitoring in china making the m. e. d. a. m. e. b. platform nationwide van and so again the chinese specs still reported on the any dc test cycle. Which is wildly optimistic. They all meetings wwl. Vp simon's the rest of the world apart from the us searches epa So that will give us a better sense.

"Gm which is producing the electric hamas gmc brand said the suv going to production early. Twenty twenty Is it just me. Say yes before. You've heard i'm going to say is it just me or is it getting a little bit tiresome. Hearing about some caused coming out in two thousand hundred twenty three when there are so many great ebays either on the market now very same i know they want to create hype around the electric hummer. But really. thanks for telling about that. We can all the now and white two years four or there are less pricey versions coming even later a grind version and a low end eighty grand version because i've always thought icy grind was the low end of the market version will have two hundred and fifty miles of range and it comes in the spring of twenty twenty four so maybe hibernate for the next three years if you on that one well previously. The company said their electric pickup truck. We'll be assembled hopefully by the end of this year starting with the most expensive trim level but if that slipped into twenty two wouldn't be surprised the fully enclosed hungary so i don't the truck but the suv version is actually a short shorter twenty inches shorter than the pickup truck. Despite this it can still comfortably sit five adults. You can fold down the receipts to open up. Eighty two cubic feet of combat cargo space in the back. More storage under the floor says the rub report dot com website. The massive cargo space accessible via power swing out tailgates. They full size or amount. It's better tire. The cabin also features the trucks sese to remove infinity. Reef this guy panels the infancy rafe. You can still them in the front of the car. The front will the fruits and if you want to convert it into a kind of four by four. Suv convertible thing. You can take off the roof and stick him in the front news. The hummer suv is less powerful than the pickup. Could be disappointing to some people. There is a trade off because the shorter wheelbase There is less room for batteries. The thing that's not like a a module two of the batteries but the new model has a shorter turning radius. So there you go silver lining. Gmc unveiled the suv and a commercial. Yes that i during the nc double a. men's final full basketball tournament. The ad was right to bombay style. Lebron james and highlighting the signature hama features like extract mode where it lifts up or crab walk says automotive news. Gmc's not confirming the volume targets. Or even where. The suv version will be made but sources say gm ability suv Factories zero in detroit's alongside the pickup truck. Well they want to build twenty three thousand suv versions of the per year. Once they finished up production edition one model Starts one hundred and five but then seven grand less than the pickup truck for the first edition but you add some fees on top of that as an authorized package which will take the price over one hundred and ten well. Gm has yet to detail the precise batch respects for the suv The little store its power in. But we think it'll be a double stacked by tree. Eight hundred volts jogging on three hundred kilowatts charge speeds and offering over three hundred miles equipped with optional power station function. It'll do vehicle to load or whatever you wanna call that you can plug stuff into the car. This is a pretty powerful verte. It's a six kilowatt power supplies so that really is plenty of power tools. You out camping and having a heater on maybe cooking as well. Six kilowatts is plenty of appliances Gm says the maximum output off. The suv is a bit down on the truck. It's going to be a one hundred and sixty seven horsepower. Less i- hundred nineteen brake horsepower of the suv which is still plenty nor to sixty in three point. Five seconds they keep giving this talk figure out which is the talk of the wheels of eleven and a half thousand pound feet of talk which is a stupid figure so To give out the real life figure could be a thousand pound feet of torque which is impressive. That's an impressive number but give this crazy. Inflated talk figure seen explained their best last year. Let me tell you how seeing the explained. Gmc keep giving this crazy. Massive number for talk to car and up corresponds to wheel talk which is traditional most to talk multiplied through a mission drive ratio. Well jason penske from engineering explained has a video that spells out the difference and he a piece that he published following tesla's claim of the roads to having seven thousand pound feet of torque. Well if you take a dodge challenger s altea demon. Which is what he did. As the example it produces nine hundred and seventy two newton meets of engine talk and multiplied through the gear ratios. You can actually get fourteen thousand talking. I but most have a final drive reduction of about eight to one. So maybe that will be just around a thousand In normal car language pound feet of torque which like i say if only they would do every other manufacturer does it would still sound very very impressive. Advice the hummer suv. What you think of it. Would you get the truck the suv. Or neither. I haven't gone particularly one hundred grand bowling abutting holding pocket so i'll be getting neither however These are great because that selling out. I mean i did say at the start of the podcast. They won't tell us how many sold so well as selling out really. I suppose unless we know the data behind it nice headline is supposed to say we sold out but the great great vehicles that get people talking. Do i really want to drive a hummer and in the wrong country for style. I rode the small and it wouldn't in my driveway in the world. When i buy one absolutely no other like how it looks on the outside all the inside. Actually it's very utilitarian isn't it. It's kind of as a working vic. Allowed understand it. But how many hamas get used as working vehicles. How many trucks get used as as working vehicles in the. Us just got used to take the kids to school. So what are your mak- this. I'd love to hear from you next. Bmw the x. is in the knees. The electric crossover is going again. M version in twenty twenty three. It'll reportedly have five hundred and sixty horse power. According to bmw blog and the performance they will guy by the name of the x m sixty more upgraded power more suspension Tweaking the styling or be more aggressive says motor. Juan dot com bmw. Taking orders for the regular vanilla. I xe the xe extra fifty in june delivery styles in twenty twenty two but prices on cheap for eighty five grand and it'll have to electric motors Produced five hundred horsepower enough to do not sixty two one hundred k's in way less than five seconds hundred kilowatt hour battery in that by the way three hundred miles or four hundred ninety three kilometers. Epa range for the bmw. I x next nissan arias Getting some last minute. Winter testing development of the car is wrapping up nissan subjecting subjecting the final cold weather testing in japan's northernmost main island. While the winter weather is still heavy. Aria is production. Ready right now. So nissan isn't really changing anything substantial just final tweaks goes up against the full model. Y kia launches. Later this year round some says auto weeks dot com. The aria goes on sale. Only the second half of this year to battery sizes are the sixty three or eighty seven kilowatt hours pricing starting around forty thousand dollars prior to incentives. The larger battery will give range of over three hundred miles. And there's a few videos floating around online at the first impressions. The nissan lesson Some journalists and car review is film are really liked the look of the our big compact family car by the way low tech like the inside. The inside reminds me very much of the outing. Five in the the center console moves forwards and backwards. It moves out of the way. If you want your shuffle leah bam across from passing drive. I don't know why you'd want to do that every day. But it's gonna be useful. Gets the center console back the white if you've got nobody in the receipt so just kind of two people in the back as well and you know it using that central rear seat also. The tech looks pretty good. The driver systems stuff. Looks really good on. The aria starting looks pretty good because they dumping chatham oh everywhere from japan so come to sit on the rights. What the leaf is the question. I sometimes a post. I didn't think it leaves the leaf up the creek without a paddle. I think they'll continue to make a direct replacement but of course is a proper. Ev from this end with battery management's proper active thermal management to keep it in good shape. Next we'll go to sweden an efforts to reduce battery whites by building batteries. The pulse of the actual cost structure or promising concepts now team swedish. Researchers has made a big advance in the area developing a structural battery system using carbon fiber. Ano- says panic. We'll tesla has been developing structural battery packs as well. We'll see on the model y coming out of berlin on the road and perhaps even in the semi truck as well but the system that tests were going for is individual cylindrical battery cells held in place by matrix. The provides structural support as part of the car's frame nonetheless policy serviceable and they essentially pass of the car. Tesla's method embedding cylindrical. cells into housing. That just happened to be part of the car's frame. That's what vehicle. Structural good approach but the swedish team have gone even further now from chalmers university of technology. The concept makes every component of the battery of structural materials is a proper structural battery pretty much. Every part of the battery supports structural. Loads not have free loadings electrical cells in some big matrix. I still up nick. Describe it which tesla's white it contains carbon fibre the serves simultaneously as electrode a conductor and load bearing materials. The latest research breakthrough paves the way for massless storage. In vehicles and other technology says sitek dot com. It's tempt massless storage. Because in essence the batteries white actually vanishes when it becomes policy that load bearing structure calculation. Show that this type of multifunctional battery could greatly reduce the weights of an ev. At the moment. I gather it's still in the lab. At of course tesla launching cows with their version of structural batteries. This summer so still work today but all sounds really promising. Okay that's the news. Hey it's time for you. A question of the week i'll answers i was talking about. Incentives moisture favor incentive and is really interesting. The says we got in this week now. Rajiv kicks off raj. Narayan says i agree with you. A subsidy off the price of av may not be the best incentive off. The manufacturer increases the price to take off some of the incentive. My chevy bolt is now suddenly much. Cheaper now is no longer eligible for a tax credit. Purchase post purchase incentives. Maybe better perhaps they set amount of free charging free access to infrastructure or even discounted or even know registration fees. He says yeah. That's what we have here. we think would vehicle excise. Gt otherwise known as the road tax attacks but people call it but his vehicle excise duty and he's based on co two and it was just when i drove a fossil car. It was one of those things that you just accepted his pov ownership with insurance and putting petrol in the car but the biggest engine the engine the more tax you pay tax however with an event they wave so zero now. I'm bitterly for so long now. Now totally used to getting the letter. You still have to register it so i still get sent to bill and it says please pay us zero pounds and you still have to go through the procedure of going online putting in your reference number and saying hey we got government. I'm giving zero pounds and they go confirmed if given us zero pounds a next year. It's a bit odd. You kind of okay through the rigamarole of it. It's about five minutes not really a hardship. But it's a good incentive. I like kinda forget about it because you know you think about what you think about. So i guess it's true. Actually if i still owned the piston kyle be very expensive to run next. James redmond says. I think people need some persuasion to try and even so i would incentivize free. Evey for twenty four seventy two hours. You've covered the insurance and let people try any evey for free says james. that's a really good incentive. I've never really heard of that on a national scale or anything like that. I've heard of small individual projects around the world that do that. But that's a really cool incentive. That wouldn't normally be thought of as an incentive but certainly sample size of one but my wife was unsold idea even though i made navy Podcast and an unranked about she did not want to drive one herself. She's like i'm fine with our. And then when i finally said look just we'll get you zoe. We'll we'll you can take it out and just have a play and kind of came back from that. And she was like well of course. Why wouldn't you why. Why would you drive anything else it was. I was smooth and quiet. And she's like we can. We can so she just needed to drive. One next marina. In new york says company vehicles cover far more miles than personal vehicles so i think fleets and working vans should get more incentives. It might not be popular with private buys but would get more miles driven electrically than any other incentive interesting tony and his bolt. Ev says it's not so much. An incentive for vs but more countries should do like norway atta surcharge or taxes to the cost of petrol and diesel cars to make them more expensive. This doesn't stop anyone buying a petro. If they want to go ahead it doesn't mean people will probably choose an though because we will want to save money. Sylvia email sylvia hudson says the best kind of incentive is one which constantly reminds you of the benefits rather than a single incentive the point of purchase so ongoing things like tax breaks or low fuel costs lower rates have company contacts. Good reminders about the choice that you have made which is to drive. Ev veronica in london. She said why don't more countries lift value added tax the at on tv. We've seen this in the following. Covid the government have given the hospitality sector a temporary vat rate reduction hospitality. And he has to charge five percent vat than the normal twenty percent their customers and that is in order to lower prices if you know to to the public and to stimulate the sector after all vat she says is an optional tax applied to most things or services that we have to buy a vat is the third biggest revenue generator in the uk for the government after the tax that we get our wages and the national insurance that we pay on our wages interesting actually. Vat is entirely discretionary and the government could say hi to pay on abc's for this year. Which would immediately take twenty percent off the price that we pay as buyers wouldn't affect the comic because tool and there'd be some lost revenue for the For the government so There's the downside death. Joey bono or bono joey from own solutions email to say. A point of sale rebates in the us seven and a half thousand dollars off the sticker price at the time of purchase finance. I'm on the ev.

"Have to mercedes-benz about to unveil any flagship e. s boasting market-leading battery range following through on. Its pledge to compete in the luxury electric vehicle segment with top technology. It's going to be pro fifteenth for the u. s. We'll see a few shots on the outside inside before then but amok milestone for the and brand has been. I think rightfully criticized for being slow on the uptake to bring me to market mercedes making eight full electric cars on three continents says the marcus schaeffer in a phone interview and writing blue bug dot com today the four hundred and thirty five miles or seven hundred kilometers of range from us which will be done again on the european test cycle so maybe slightly less i guess for the the epa in the us will give tesla a bit of a headache because they've dominated the space for range the range of the us would exceed that of the long range muddle s and of course coming soon. We'll have lucid with that at doing. Five hundred and seventeen miles then the model s. plaid plus five hundred and twenty miles. How have you look this whether you want to make this a fight between certain comedy. Because i'm always came to go down the route of of of being the one that pitches these calls against each other. I just think they'll be fans of mercedes fans of high end cars. And i know i upset tesla fans when i say that they're not high end cars other other world's best. Ev engineering. And i think the world's best software. I'll make the argument to Old along the Not the world's best luxury 'cause they're nice places to be inside but the people the augie tesla's luxury cars often find have not been inside luxury and with all respect. They're the people who are spending a hundred and twenty grand on a car right neither am i so i'm not saying that i. I'm buying cars like that. Just saying the people that go all well know mercedes. We've got no challenge. Because tesla goes further. Don't discount the buyers out that who have one hundred one hundred twenty grand to spend on a luxury car. Who by the way who don't think less is more. I know that the philosophy of let's take everything out one screen hoffa steering wheel. There are plenty of people out there who don't think less is more. They think more is more and this mercedes-benz curious which by the way is the electric equivalent of an s class. It needs to be amazing. It needs to be full luxury. It needs to be when that door slams shut with a german thud the only they can. Do you need to feel like you know you spend a million pounds on that kite to sit inside and nba absolutely wild. I think they will. Because i was inside. Or is it the mercedes benz e. qc recently that they're even and even that. Which is that will be a step down to it. S class in terms of luxury. Even that was a really really nice place to be inside again from the perspective. Not the best buy treat tech not the best efficiency and range etc this. Us just needs to compete in terms of the tech side. An if a smash it with the luxury. I think then you know lucid will suddenly have competition and i would say test competition but but really if these s clause buyers had wanted to go electric by now they would have done so they would have bought stuff was a model s. So i don't know. I think he's widens the market. Not cannibalize is the mock-ups so excited about luxury. Cars like this. Not own one on excited about it right next. Dhl launching one hundred new lightning electric vans delivery vans in the us dhl express continue to make investments in the electric van fleet following a successful initial pilot program using nine lightning electric ford transit electric vans in the us last year.

Buses passenger van chassis cab models city transit buses motorcoach stuff like that next. We'll talk waymo that providing a look inside. Self-driving truck testing electric vehicles and autonomy tend to go hand in hand and waymo is interesting. That big purchase of jaguar electric. I pace is now that putting that technology inside trucks on public roads and for the price they did a Unveiling event on march twenty fourth and they had a close aide tractor with all of the waymo. Self-driving stuff in operating around phoenix.

Comes they fifty kilowatt blade battery. Four hundred one kilometers of course is any dc which they still use kind of you know almost have it interesting side note. I say this on the podcast already china this summer. A moving the wwl. Tcp way of measuring range. Moving away from dc which is long overdue so the the range chinese vehicles give i think from june july will be much more accurate now. The d d. One is another car from daiwa d.

"The the industry association so we can say it's called the decay Anyway they went to the eu commission. And they said it's not fair because tesla have their approved repair is and only they can get access to tesla's resources Which is against e. U. rules tesla were then forced to comply by the look of this article. And again i'm i'm converting it from german to english. So that's correct Tesla has has now as the beginning of the year made that information available to anyone. So small garages that body repairs and to anyone but if you're not on tesla's list of preferred repair is that all also there's a sting in the tail. They've opened it up but they also charge people one hundred twenty five euros an hour to use the diagnostic and programming software and thirty euros an hour to enter the technical portal. So that complaints going back into the eu or at least the german regulates is to say it's discriminate serie and of course small gay marriages repairs maintenance. People would have to pass that onto the customer. Therefore the official tesla. Paris third party ones on the list would be able to offer a better deal at it discriminates. So we'll see where that goes I don't know how it's difficult how you feel about that because alcazar expensive we want to take care of them and also. I liked the idea. That tesla has a list of approved. Third party repair is if they can't do something They've the garage. I'm taking you through. Has at least been vetted in some way Like i said i think about that. Lie about combustion kaos anyone can fix the combustion car but i don't know and tesla's we as well because it's a closed ecosystem so they can turn your car off if they want to. They have to have turned off charging for people's cars who people who call was wrecked or an insurance write-off but they got go come back on the road and fixed it tested said. Nah an plugging into our superchargers and turn are also. You're not charging at all on anyone's network dc fast charging turning off so It's it's a weird situation. It's not like combustion cars were when you bought the car. The car is yours. We've tesla when you fall the car. They never let go of it. It's a nice way to describe think best way to describe it. Let's talk about going racing with.

"If you look at the vehicles online You can pick up a small battery one like an old one for about fifteen grand here in the uk in van in twenty four kilowatt hour van outfit. It's a panel van as well also cbs's seven or eight seats in the envy two hundred but look the nuance with the big battery. The forty kilowatt hour battery going full by the look of it. Twenty seven twenty eight grand very useful. Great great levine. Of course it charges on chatham. Oh and it's one of those. I think great little products that was ignored for too long by its parent company so the reynaud necessitates bitchy alliance is taking. The philosophy of h. One of those brands are going to be. The leader for certain vehicles and the other brands will follow. We'll have sista vehicles if you like. So they'll be more based on these new platforms. They sent a token about okay. Let's move on. Vw's vulcan ceo not the brand vw hubbub. He's intimidated spy apple. Even though the tech company has an electric car on the way according to cnn votes wagner is aiming to be dominance in the ev field the company so two hundred and thirty one thousand six hundred eighty in twenty twenty according to figures published back in january by vw. Although that's less than half the number of tesla tesla did you nearest dammit. Plus minus a couple down the back of the cipher. Half a million in two thousand nine hundred twenty guidance is attested. Guidance is fifty percent growth which is low balling and everyone knows as well. And it's really weird thing to do because in tunnel targets about a million cars this year. For tesla so vw are playing catch up but they had two hundred and fourteen percent increase on the previous year. So the getting that now. This was a german publication that Interviewed him and he said and i quote the car. Industry is not a typical tech sector. That you could take over at a single stroke. Apple will not manage that's overnight and quotes very true them and they went to overnight butts. I wouldn't want to go up against apple because they any tend to do something when they are ready to really go for it and when they do you know that they are serious. I still come walk out what we're gonna do with. Why would apple mike. Why would apple get into cars which are full of boxes an oil and entire wear out and things and windscreen wipers that get replaced apple devices so slick and full gloss and and actually get replaced every couple of years. Why get into cost. It just seems. I can't get my head around it i can. I can understand apple providing the software to give you the apple experience and the sense of sweet so the cameras the right of the line and how that whole an and the autonomy but they on gonna. I can't see apple making a car. it's just like come making. It's just a business as well just goes against the much apple stands for and i you know an apple car is essentially branded apple. But made by you know because they didn't make their own phones fox and others make the actual devices. That would make more sense so that i can walk up to the apple car with my watch. My phone unlocks like in. I can carry on the conversation on the cole..

"The brand is establishing itself on the market with both vs but plug ins as well and we look zero those in two thousand and twenty one and then. Finally i'll pain is brand run. I had a huge amount lately making some really interesting. 'cause over the years but i'll pain and lotus jointly developing an electric sports car lotus or making the via which is one of those cars the ghost nor to sixty in a heartbeat and does about four thousand miles on our two hundred mile an hour time rather not sixty. Maybe the not to two hundred miles an hour. Time anyway lotus norfolk company. Where i'm from. So i have an affinity and the alpine. Lotus teams will do a study together. Some joint engineering designing developing sports cars. Four alpine by levering leveraging both every sources in france and at hatha in the uk. Alpine and lotus will also explore the development of joint services. A collaboration to leverage al pains motorsport platform. of course. they've remained the renault. F one team as of the first of january to the alpine f. One team which is funny because reynaud making a very big deal about the alpine brand going electric and yet to get their name out de had to rename that formula one team. A cobb will go around the world every weekend. Bunning rather lots of fossils and the little bit of electric in there as well with some region. Okay let's talk about how we need to focus on. Trucking and educate people about commercial vehicles are am i and nfl or announcing the third of their biannual trucking demonstrations. That could run on this. She is running on less. We'll we'll focus on electric trucking ten dedicated trucks and that drives reporting real time. Data show the current state aviv. Trucking technology in the industry has cleaned technica. The demonstration vehicles would include electric vans medium duty trucks and heavy duty. Trucks moving freight and a variety conditions in areas. In order to increase electric truck adoption and deployment vis run on less this year will help fleets and charging companies and utility companies. And policymakers get access to the data to better understand the benefits and challenges of hauling freight with batteries. Let's talk about the story. i mentioned. elliott tesla recall. Sorry tesla being asked to recall hundred and fifty eight thousand cars because of failures the national highway traffic safety administration. So it's a federal body the nitsa. Nhtsa is being asking tesla to recall one hundred fifty eight thousand model s and model x. cars because of the media control unit. This is the big touch screen that lives in the middle of the car and they're failing according to nick tesla doesn't do model is but nitsa dozen so they're giving it the twenty twelve to twenty eighteen more or less on the twenty six th two thousand eighteen model x. model years i was twelve thousand model s. An of how the finally happened so far and up nick colleague. Jason chizevsky reported back in november last year That it's a weirdly preventable. Issue tesla near that the flash memory card. They were putting in would fail at some point. They just miscalculated. How long it would take in the life cycle of the car now. One of the sponsors. That i mentioned every day on the podcast is richard simmons they buy and sell in the uk. But mostly tesla's been doing it for years real depth of knowledge. There remember speaking to him about this months and months ago saying that they have developed their own because it happens and people concerned about it. They've developed their own third party fix for this issue. People coming to them other wanting to buy a tesla having the work done before it goes wrong or coming to the not being bar. Cobb is and customers wanting advice or wanting that worked. They developed their own solution to this. It's a relatively easy solution but it's interesting that there is now a recall and and again a very careful because i noticed that this isn't the federal agency telling tesla you must do this by sutton date when i read. The report said we asking tested to do this by the looks of it's optional. I don't know what would happen if tesla don't that's probably an option because they said we're asking them rather than telling them or maybe i'm just getting lost in the weeds on that. And if they if they ask they've got to do it. Let's finish off with a story. About tesla adding some european dealerships expanding the number of stores and service centers in europe by third last year alone in preparation for the model. Y coming over automotive news. Europe tesla open forty new outlets in europe last year for a total of one hundred and sixty one here in the region. I say we know in europe anymore. a majority office sales and service tessler affirmed his promise to stop production of the model y at that new factory in berlin in july. Now i can't find the press release. This came from the report in automotive news europe. But that's the first time i've said maybe said before. That's the first time i've seen them say we will make model y in july in berlin they've always said q. To middle of the year or those kinds of things and being quite vague. I am still pinning on end of june beginning of july and so maybe tester openly saying now july i one of the few makers of electric cars actually here in europe in decline right now and it does tend to blow the tesla super fans minds when they'll macbeth feelings known to me on twitter and if i gently outlook i've ahead tessler is a brand. That is has had all their own way. And now there is a choice of other 'cause whilst the raw numbers on terrible and market share is is significantly in decline simply because there's so many other reviews to choose from but they are in decline hearing europe in the first eleven months of twenty twenty Down about eighteen percent they sold about sixty nine thousand five hundred vehicles up to the end of november. That's not the fully in number and it's not. The official numbers focused tests. That don't publish that. That's coming in automotive analysts could matisse schmidt so make of that what you will. I follow him on twitter and redesign articles. I write in very highly. Which is why. I give you the news on the podcast. So if the numbers were not exact it is going to be far away so very interesting. They'll do to to try and turn around the eighteen percent decline in europe. Of course the berlin gigafactory opening is going to be such a big deal as well because yes we do like across. Suv's here as much as anybody does around the world it seems So the model y will indeed be a big seller being made on the continent and hopefully that will do something for the prices because they are expensive to buy a tesla and if if people don't quite realize they sometimes i look at the the us dollar amounts and then converted to pounds. And can i go green with envy. It's an expensive car to buy over here. Of course there's the shipping also Importing them As well so. It's not like buying them in in the us It's much more affordable and used ones much more affordable in the us over here. they still because of supply. I have to wait for a ship to arrive the model threes. I did look a little while ago. early ones high mileage. Like thirty thousand and something like a new on his forty and a half like all right.

"Per show and citron. Psa group recorded a great year in two thousand twenty for like electrified models. A hundred and twenty thousand and that's one of the reasons why met they european. Co two targets which my say of us having done at the same time. The french companies total sales slumped twenty seven point eight percents and a covid year as so many bad headlines carmakers put the one bright star has always been electric cars. According to electric the french concrete is planning a merge with fit chrysler and then not trying to merge the name and do some sort of frankenstein's monster kind of thing. No it's could still lantis happen. They try and crowbar in little bits of names and give everyone equal shad but out with the old in with the new sta lantis a falling back on three platforms really They in addition to the already known e. c. m. p. e. v. mp platforms. They are a base developed by it cries lodge electric cars now the moment. Psa offer seventeen electrified models that adding six more this year and some of those cars that have come out. I've been really impressed with things. Like the peugeot e to eight the ds which is call it a citron. It is the ds cross back eight ten very much. The same running gear in the power train underneath many of these calls but sort of tweaked slightly different specs all tweaked slightly different. Some of the vans coming out. Psa vans and big vans as well fifty kilowatt hour battery hundred kilowatt charging all very sensible and ovary available on sale now Which is the key thing with evasive staying in france. The reynaud five electric super mini seven fully. Electric vehicles will be launched in the next four years and one of them was previewed today. You re bone reynaud five also known as liquor in the united states the superman. Es back after being discontinued in nineteen ninety-six as motor one dot com reynaud labels the new five as a prototype concept so although this is that it is coming. The production version will arrive. It's not a kind of crazy design ideas. It's what we're gonna make this car. And here's the prototypes. I won't be wildly different from this. Really distinctive retro styling. There's a red stripe around the windows is the sort of drivers and back windows as it were a not to the hot hatch. Version the running five. Gt back in the night which may hint. as well. modern day evey counterpart could come also hearing that there's plans to bring back through four as well. Details are limited also blogs said viewed from the side the concepts silhouette echoes his predecessors with short front overhanging the c pillar slanted about forty five degrees relatively told vertical lights unmistakable. Not to the The super sink the fives smaller. While the emblem placed on the passenger side of the hatch creates a visual link between the two cars that we didn't expect to find out back. It's inspired by the reynaud five and the grill. The place. the renter logo next to the driver's side headlight. So we're really excited about this. I'm always excited about small cars anyway. I'm excited about anything. That's a use case. I'm really kind of bored by coming out and the car makers trying tick all the boxes which is all well and good. It's nice when they erasing. Vienna carries fourteen people and does not sixty in one second. It'll go million miles an hour for about four thousand miles and it's on the spec. Wars are nice. But i'm just kind of down with it. I'm just a love cars that fit for purpose and use case as well so i like small cheap cars and vans and commercial vehicles going electric so many really exciting things happening happening a few years ago. And so yeah. This is a great example of a car. Which is going to be for everybody. It will hold around probably four maybe five people at a pinch when you have to otherwise it will be used for families doing errands and being renault. It's going to be cheaper. And you know thinking about the cause in the segment. Honda a mini cooper. Se fear five hundred. Roll around thirty grand vega. Be ten grand more expensive than this. This car is is kind of swimming in the same pool is the likes of the persian e. Two eight and the reynoso. Is this going to replace their is zoe 'cause he's going to be in a couple of years time. By which time the as any fifty. It'll be a little bit long in the tooth or will it replace the twin going. Well we'll wait and see whatever happens really excited about reynaud confirming that they're gonna make seven electric cars new ones between now and twenty twenty-five but this is one of the ones that is just it's bags of style and you know what i mentioned this on the inside eve as video podcasts that i do with the guys and you can watch on the inside vs youtube channel. If you haven't seen it yet i do the ivory friday i mentioned to them you know i think that so. Many carmakers have realized they have so much in the heritage that they can play on the startups. Don't have that. So the startups have to come out of the blocks with great technology and name for themselves and they are if you look at the likes of the biggest names tesla obviously arguably still a startup but has been through that process and then you got the others lucid and rivi and countless others in china and so many more as well all starting for standing stone having to create a brand. I think a lot of the the the the comic is that four or five years ago was saying wahl when we choose to make vs. We're going to be We'll show the rest of them. How it's done. We'll look people have been eating their lunch. And i think so. Many have been used by how good some of these startups are. And that's without even the chinese companies coming to western markets. Yeah really and so. What is interesting is how these companies have been around one hundred years or way more in the case of a peugeot and renault looking at the heritage and saying actually we can create some emotion around this. And i get that. Sometimes there's a little bit of lacking emotion in the high tech of ease and so great. Let's hark back to the past. Let's let's create some of the emotion through classic and future classic ev- as as well a really really like what they're doing. I think it'd be a great way as well for many people to buy into electric cars by by giving them a sense of solidity by comparing them to cause that maybe ran for twenty twenty-five thirty years production runs in the past that many people grew up with parents. Had they remember from their childhood. So i think it's a really really cool thing. Hey token eye by the way they have doubled. Their sales in europe on the european electric market reynaud doubled sales and confirm their leadership. One hundred fifteen one hundred sixteen thousand pure electric vehicles. Zoe is the best selling electric car. It's up one hundred and fourteen percent this year. Well twenty twenty two..
