"You know. They kind of require retraining. And so at the moment. I think there are well. I know there are many more main dealers who have the facilities the right safety equipment with electrical power also with just lifting the car up in the correct way so as not to damage it more of those than independent sweatshops and small garages etc to work on the vehicles. But really interesting. Point k next at cortines says i've bought two used nissan leafs and both came from dealers with a full service history. I'd be very reluctant to consider any without this. At least indicates that the previous owner looked off of their car and hopefully didn't trash the battery at least with the nissan leaf at. There's a very visual display right in front of you have how many battery actually left. It's one of the things that is great with the league. If you're buying one that can instantly look down at the pictures even before you've traveled to go and see the vehicle. Something i right now. Many battery basel left. What kind of conditions. In raj narayan says i think it depends on the car. And the mileage. For example. If i was looking at nissan leaf or even a chevy bolt with over one hundred thousand miles prior servicing might be important to me and he used. Ev with fifty thousand miles or less and price. Servicing is less important to me. Ross dandy sorry wrought dandy. I'm sorry rod rod dandy says. I'd prefer to have service records when buying any used vehicle. It might have been in an accident. What about recalls and things like that ethan. Murray says and don't forget about things like the cabin f- filter surely these things we can all do ourselves but sometimes getting a professional to do them even if it's not a main dealer is the best thing to ensure that your cost as running smoothly j. for manchester says as a former mechanic whilst the quality of both cars and consumables lectures oils etc. Getting better off always have safety. Critical systems checked by qualified dealer or garrick. They can often spot something before even fails the brake fluid test. For instance is something that many people forget about says jay in manchester. Yeah you definitely. Don't one your brake fluid degrading or being just not absolutely In perfect condition. So it's one of those things. I haven't really thought of because i guess just these use that breaks a lot less. What does that do to the brake fluid. The fact that you're not causing the pumping the brakes does that. Does that mean that the fluid last longer or is it in terms of moisture etc getting into the fluid which which will reduce the effectiveness of it does that is it nothing to do with how much they used. And simply a result of time. I'd love to know but really good point. Roxanne guy says hearing florida it gets pretty warm. If the isn't working. I know tests have schedule per se but all air conditioning will lead servicing. At some point says roxanne. You hadn't thought about that. I was thinking of things like the trees. And you know converters and stuff. But what about the bits that every car has got like an air conditioner yet if not if not then servicing than like a re gassing or something. Yeah really. Good point merv. The swerve great mothers says what about breaks the roaches in the pads. I've had some issues them so little they get rusty and they seize up he says Yeah i mean the rust on the The brake discs. i would call them disks The rust i wouldn't worry about as long as it surface rust. And that's going to happen if you don't use your breaks very often of course you can clean them up by just doing a couple of heavy stops the vw. Kozel will the platform really. They use Those drum brakes at the rest of the actually gets rid of the problem of disks rusting up not being used because they completely self contained and of sealed units if you like but yeah the front brakes can seize up on any car. I suppose if you don't use them but yeah with evasion pretty good point about the depending on what model is the strength of region. Meaning that you badly need to touch the brake pedal. Sometimes that's a good point. I would probably be tempted every so often if you breaks out a little bit sticky or just haven't been used in a while where it's safe to do so a couple of big stops. Get them cleaned up. Make sure they work in but absolutely go to a professional and get them sorted out. Alex lindsay says having gone through a few sets of tyres over the years because of missa linemen rather than where the weight of. Ev's makes both tie precious and wheel alignment actually pretty important. Alex says yeah ty pressures. You're absolutely right with alignment. I hadn't considered alex sukuzi vs can be heavier than combustion. Counterparts and wheels on all pointing in the same direction is going to wear them. Good shout quinton and canada. Says i recently had my ego serviced. I'd like to know exactly. I just paid for something i would add. More value would be printouts for every customer some sort of analysis on all the various factors inside the battery. Even if not a blow by blow account of each cell. I'd like to know the condition of the pike says quenton that's already show. Actually lots of people get their visa system and then think well. Why exactly have i just paid a lot money for because you haven't exactly changed the oil or anything like that some sort of diagnostics. Where they actually do something. They plug something into the car. And then give you a dashboard or a printout or something that says right. You're ninety seven percents States of charge compared to when the battery was new. This is your degradation. This is the health of the cells. This is the last time you fully charged to a hundred so either. We recommend that you do recommend that you don't different batteries and chemistries and stuff. That'd be actually. A bit of coaching would be good on how to get the best i batteries. Pj in spain's as anyone else have twelve volt battery. Dial them yet. People get it checked says. Pj and that's a good shout as well. Yes if you're twelve. Volts has gone on your electric. You won't be the first and he won't be the last that's ever happened. Seems to be a weird thing that phase electric cars. More than any others on the zoe. The i've got the one that's gonna go very soon boo. Don't wanna sell it ready but we have to These are two year to three years schedule on the twelve. Oh i think. I think anyway. But i was is still under warranty being a couple of years old right less than a brand new question of the week with immobility. No white dot com. How many podcast listeners. That chain into the show every day have changed that electricity tariff off the buying an electric vehicle. So does it start to bring to the front of your mind about what you pay if you hire him electric when you get an ebay or maybe even when you stop to think about buying one how many of you regularly changed your electricity tariff to get the best deal. Some people get locked into the tariff for a year or so. But if you're not do you flip around. If that's possible where you live. Some people can some people. Can't how much interest do you take in your home. electricity supply. I'd love to know. I'm really interested in in kind of how people think about charging that human getting like the best possible.

"In the segment of pure battery electric vehicles china. Has i fifty seven percent. Global shep higher than europe's twenty seven percent and north america's fifteen percent on. It's something occasionally. I'll get into a conversation with my listeners. Us fans often tesla phones as well. Let's say you don't talk about tesla enough and i look. This is a global podcast. I am based in the uk and also in the us or north america actually Only fifteen percent of the world's av market but also it's nearly all tesla on so. It's a very specific markets. Where tesla still rule the roost. But go outside the border and actually around the world so many interesting stories to talking about this this next one the bmw. I four has twice as many preorders. As the i x in the us even though crossovers and as she visa growing in popularity. It's actually the i fall. Which is doing better than its sister. Car the i x now the. Irs is an suv. but the i four is cheaper. The i four racking up two thousand ninety-five reservations so far in the us the x. Not even getting two thousand one to boosting the iphone. Popularity says inside. Eva's is the fact that it's much cheaper than the i x. the is a ground up designed puree an amazing vehicle. I'd love to have a go in one wouldn't be for me just styling and stuff but the starts at eighty three thousand dollars in the us. You can easily over one hundred thousand here in germany and europe germany. The nas seventy seven thousand euros but again you can go over one hundred grand really easily if you had options for the more powerful variant as in the show nights and also talking bmw. The series production begins the x. So that is great news for getting into customers hands. Bmw beginning production of the ix dingolfing in gemini. The plant now produces vehicles with drive train train. Variants that they'll make the ev opposite the combustion cows opposite hybrids the bmw x. Being made in the largest european production plans and that also makes the five series seven series. I series now. Actually that's the addition to handle the flexibility of drive units vehicle. Assembly in dingolfing has been expanded and refurbished. Bmw spent four hundred million on up grading the lines to produce the bmw x. The i four will be joined. That will be built in munich by the end of the year by next year. All german plants making at least one full electric model of their fifth generation battery and idrive technology and all of that is completed at one sites in terms of the production capacity for bmw. Next year The half a million number should be reached the dingolfing plant for putting together pure electric cars which is brilliant news. Vw on the podcast. Next and this is really interesting because the three and the four getting their first over the air. Updates w announcing the first major wireless software upgrade for that id cars and the first to benefit from version. Two point three. It's going to be the ide- three than the id. Four and the four g. t. x. says motor dot com the first over the air update for the id range will bring improvements to the lighting. The main beam control the infotainment system and others and the emmy platform on which other kinds of built like skoda. Any ac audi kief full The cooper born that platform can control thirty five difference control units within the with an over the air update so they can do a lot once. The car leaves the factory Which never used to be the case that promising an update every twelve weeks from what i gather this is just for the vw brand. Not for all the cars on the platform so you know because of the infotainment systems and different and everything but they'll be some core systems that are the same so it'll be interesting to watch the roll out to those other brands that use exactly the same platform and of course even in europe ford a building a car based on that platform movie at the same updates. That'll be interesting to watch coming up on. The podcast will answer your question of the week. And we'll look at the jeep wrangler full by oscar. Any good in only mode stick around. Now let's talk about a big battery in australia australia Building it without any kind of government help or aid at all. It's a market. I because it's being built entirely with commercial funds and it's entirely Able to be built without subsidies victoria. We'll get australia's first grid scale battery by the end next year Mocking the tipping point. They say in electric storage prices because they putting and i joined three hundred megawatt battery. In just west of melvin. The arrive lithium batteries. We'll be supplying five hundred thousand megawatt hours of electricity. That'll powell one million homes for half an hour if the was out it'll cost about three hundred. Million dollars says the sydney morning herald dot com dot. Au and that's great because anything that can be done without subsidies on market all leaving the market to do it without any intervention shows that it's ready it's mature let's go. Let's put battery storage in as many places as possible. Next we'll talk about the jeep wrangler four exc- or as they want me to say full by which is arguably a terrible name for four x. He's pretty cool. But of course there'd be full by four by four with four x four. So i have to say full by reluctantly. The jeep wrangler full by is second only to the mighty rubicon three ninety-two in terms of its power. Three hundred and seventy five horsepower. And four hundred seventy pound feet of torque has a two liter turbocharged engine and an electric motor but they put the motive between the engine the transmission. So it's a quick jeep says car and driver five point five seconds to sixty but driving it in electric only mode. They ask. is it any good. I put to the test car and a say that the fourteen kilowatt hour battery pack will do twenty one miles on electric range. It's big enough to get the full seven and a half thousand dollar federal tax credit and it's got one hundred thirty four horsepower on the electric motor alone. Well some plug ins place the motor on maybe the rear axle. If engine driving the front axle to a achieve all-wheel drive but jeep on the wrangler. Do it differently. They put it ahead of the transmission so actually uses the eight speed also box which is interesting. There's nothing wrong with having an av with gives generally have a single reduction gear but the tycoon has to give. And there's no reason why you can't have guests like the jeep Also means that the electric motor powers all four wheels even in low range mode car and drive a say i was creeping around in. Ev mode and the strictures of technical trail running in other words. Low speeds and precision are rewarded in av mode and are in sync with the capabilities of the electric side of the powertrain. So would this jeep full by. It's not really a plug in vehicle which meant to be driven on av power at high speeds so get to thirty mile an hour pretty quickly but just get forty fifty sixty and it'll just creep up taking a ton at sea to get the the engine will kick in if you already floor it or if the battery's low state of charge this and it will it'll tow quite happily battery alone but again it's going to stop the battery very quickly but if you want to use your engine to get to the trial head and then just use electric power to crawl around the trial in your florida. Then this cop will do absolutely find really interesting to read that report and car and drive up up link in the show notes if you'd like to read more and let's talk about the headline story that i jay leno. Fan tesla interviewed elon. Musk multiple times is selling his original tesla they twenty fifteen model s belonging say the comedian and those that watch jay leno's garage like i do knows he loves his cars. It's now up for sale on the auction. Website could bring a trailer. It's a p ninety d and according to the documentation it has the long range upgrade the panoramic roof the twenty one inch silva by an wheels the black alcantara headliner. And of course ludicrous. North of sixty two point eight thought one in the p. Ninety it was less than three in ludicrous so according to leno the car has been reliable. He always charges to eighty percent the batteries in good nick. And if you'd like to buy a former celebrity up lincoln the show nights and it's going for seventy grand at the moment for a six year old i. I'm sure it has a little bit of stardust attached to it because Jay that funny story around it very quickly. Funny story about how he pulls it elon. Musk when they met gave him his personal mobile phone. Call me anytime you need see. And so when jay. Then i was thinking it'd be cool to film some stuff in the factory or around tesla's factory. He calls elon. Musk who just happened to be in china at that time and it was about two or three o'clock in the morning it was the middle of the night. Anyway ellen picked up like what are you want and jay. leno said. He felt so bad that he said. I wanna buy one of your costs so he bought a car. It's fine i'll buy one. I'm sorry waking you up. Must be nice to be multimillionaire hopes sorry. I woke up his money. I think the call was about one hundred and forty grand new. I believe rights. Let's a question of the week. I was asking you this week. Would you if you could do one thing at home and only afford one only do one. Would you got sola installed or would you have a batch tree to download the app download to charge up overnight and then use the electricity that you go on a cheap overnight right during the day so maybe charge jury or maybe back to the grid or would you have instead. Adrian bond from colchester revise said for many. I see it's down to use cases. But i see most favoring sola and we've had both the battery removed. It's a long story. he says. The main factor for many may be that it's red or impossible to get free energy. When you've got trees you can get cheap overnight. Tariffs puts occasionally Only occasionally with sola large chunks of the date they provide free inverted commas electric and add in smart home charging tech like a charger which you can attach to your solar panel so excess goes into the car and why have a small battery when you have a big one on the driveway. Raj narayan says. If i had to choose one it would be to produce my electricity though. I can see that if someone who lives in an area with cheap overnight electricity could be preferable to have storage at home in my case in texas he says grid is more carbon intensive than you guys in england despite all the wind power the price per kilowatt hour doesn't vary with the time of day and so he has seventeen kilowatts of community soda an eight kilowatts of his own rooftop solar and he charges his all of his miles on that wade says i have on the road at home and at work i have one hundred percent net metering until electric cars. We drive totally on the power of the sun and we never pay electrcity with net metering. The great is my battery. So i'm not shuffling power. Having only about three zero with sola says white stephen. Troia says i would choose solar panels that way. I know that i can. I'm passively adding more clean energy to the grid. And i imagine that solar. Ac is a big plus more sunlight more energy. He says romy schneider that sent me a very interesting e mail. Just give you the first part. I have fifteen point six kilowatts of solar since last autumn. Wow that's a big all right my friend. I have no stationary battery. But i have two big ones. A tesla and eighty two eight and sola manager which is a very tiny reasonably priced. Computer loading only when there is some and low tariffs. I would go not a battery allen. Northcott listens in waco says i believe solar and home. Batteries are both important bought. If you have to choose one get solar. It will contribute clean energy to the grid. Which is the top priority for them. Battery storage is useful but in homes. These are usually only used in power. Outages you talk about how the k power never goes down but this reliability relates to country. The us has more hurricanes than any other country. My state of texas is in the top five states. That are hit so he does get power outages and he says i disagree with you. You stated that if you are producing more electricity during the day become store in a battery. You're wasting it. He says not. So you added back to the grid. Your neighbors can use clean green energy. You're absolutely right. I was wrong on that completely. Right doesn't get doesn't go into the he goes back into the great and it is not wasted. Especially if you get paid for it pull denny says i have and i challenged my seventy five kilowatt tesla so it would only let me get the electricity back out of it. I would need a battery if only i could do to. Great come on alan. He says let me get the out of my car. Run baba in san jose without a doubt. I would install solar over batteries. The one exception. I can think of is if i lived in an area with inconsistent power like a mountainous region where power lines are dropped for extended periods of time. I purchased four point. Five kilowatts solution in october. Two thousand twelve. So ron was early and he has generated fifty megawatts of energy with no o'grady reduce energy bills. The system has more than paid for. Itself jason hoffman in fresno california environmentally. Speaking sola is the way to go. He says spatterings for homes can never really scale to the costs without significant improvement. Even if your solar is going back into the grid that's clean energy your providing your neighborhood. The might not have solar now. I do love the idea at some point in the future. We'll be being bidirectional so that if there was a need in the power grid power outage. Electric cars could step in mareo. Caballero said it depends on your interconnection rules here in new jersey. We don't have time of use. Electricity tariffs and we get one for one net. Metering battery doesn't make financial sense unless you're looking for backup power. The grid is my battery. He says andrew hallstrom says solar. All day wants the utilities. Allow bidirectional issues. You need battery storage. Why get a thirteen point. Five kilowatt hour battery. I think he's talking. About the powell. Left and tesla when you come has a seventy.

"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..

"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.

"raj narayan" Discussed on EV News Daily - Electric Car Podcast

"News. I love hearing stuff like this. Ebays adjust set Exponential growth everywhere. I turn and look this week. It's been an amazing week. Positive news that segues nicely into what amazing. We can spin for your question of the week on says i was asking you. What the moments if you can remember the moment when you realized you wanted to drive electric and you have thank you. Rajiv narayan emailed me for decades. He says i've been interested in decarbonising costs have been interested in biofuels and hybrids and vs in two thousand and seventeen hurricane. Harvey disrupted gas supplies. He's in san antonio and he finally pulled the trigger. That was the moment 2017. An with chevy bullets a short time later he discovered this podcast. But let's not put a dampener on this happy story. Talmon says sir moment was when my prime zero percent in the engine started. I like it. I like it and yeah i know. Sacrifice robert baxter says i. I knew i wanted to drive anne. V in august twenty twelve robots taken a spike outscore robot. Baxter drove a nissan leaf. He didn't by the necessity because it was going to be a new car and he had to handle four hundred mile round trips they took quite regularly therefore he looked to the main alternatives. The votes in the us and the prius plug. The volts was too small But he loved. The car settled prius plug in had the cough. I and a half years does ninety one miles a gallon the twelve miles on a charge when he purchased it now. Eight years later gets about nine miles on a charge. The cost seventy three thousand miles on it. And he does the routine maintenance the dealership. That's it. I just love stories like that. Like robert took a risk back in two thousand twelve and it paid off. Jonathan pryce says within minutes of our first zoe zeti forty test drive. It was an early twenty seventeen a nearly new zeti forty soon afterwards. Then another now. We have a zeti fifty oman. Jonathan a man after my own heart loving the zoe's house phil now fill kept emailed me to say after taking a test drive in a leaf drove a micra which was not inspiring But then he his wife's agreement and they went for relief and it arrived some months later. Don miller in north carolina's is back in the sixties neighborhood. Electric gulf mole. Kart if you like and used to take me to little league practice. I remember how quiet it was a blast. It was because we zip. I never forgot about those trips. And i knew i now know. That was the av grin. All the way back to the nineteen sixties. Is that the oldest memory. We're going to get today. Kramer email to say i knew. I wanted to drive. Any since. I saw ed begley junie driving around one in the nineteen nineties. Totally geeking out on technology. Just in pavlik says i knew i wanted to drive and encourage everyone else to drive ev. When i was on a run i was running down the forbes avenue in pits in between classes just just happened to be during rush hour traffic running along the road with the cost spewing garbage into the ad i was breathing made it difficult to breathe the final straw when a diesel powered bus came by bombarding me with exhaust right in my face. That was the moment. I've realized we'd all be better off with electric. Paul polansky says for me. It was the first time. I drove a model s early. Two thousand nine hundred nineteen possibly two thousand eighteen. He says i was raised around. American muscle cost the bigger allowed and stinkier the up. Then i drive the model s. It wasn't the strange lame looking eve. As the i'd seen before wales it. It took off like a rocket now. The only decision is which is rights for paul in the us. Says i've always been interested in in green issues. Probably from what. I was at school in the early nineteen nineties. I remember having a lesson on ozone damaged recycling and the environment that stuck with me in two thousand thirteen. I noticed a fancy black tesla on the base. I was working at and thoughts. This is it savvy. I couldn't afford one until last month. Have bought some tesla shares. At that point. He could have retired long before now in never say never. And there's always always time to not necessarily invest in in tesla. But there's so many exciting things happening around. Evt's don't don't give recommendations. I always say never buy single stocks. What goes up can go down. And if you've been into tesla for a long time you've done so so well but that is my very conservative financial advice small see. I'm very very boring. It's all in the pension let's talk about. Which is i guess. I suppose in a way. I invest in these depending on what they spend that. So that pension on book. Good luck if anyone is investing in in single stocks it's a roller coaster isolate really well night but of course like i say if you've been if you had like polls like a and says you know if you've been in tesla for a while you might a few bulbs right right marks email. Mock ricco machen maine. I used to be a pickup truck. Guy and i go into a vase when riven unveiled the i one say i've seen lost interest in trucks are now i want a model. Why out of my price range says mark but a lot closer than arabian anthony reid. E mail to say when a chap knocked on my door in two thousand fourteen and told me if i had solar panels on my roof out get unlimited free electricity. That was when i knew. I was going to buy a navy being mr spreadsheet. I knew i was spending how much per year on petrol in my to press malcolm fowler. Email so many amazing. I want to get through as many emails this week as possible because we're not even at twenty minutes. Yeah so let's crack. All malcolm says july twenty nineteen. That was the moment. I was considering whether to buy ebay much changed cars so i visited the ev experienced center and milton. Keynes it's fine place. I've been there but charged nearby as well and test drove several. Makes of av assuming the ev experience open center opened again after covid. Highly recommended say prospectively buys. You want to experience different as now in october. Twenty twenty malcolm got rid of his car and bought a renault. Zoe zeti fifty. Oh my friends and family. Regard me as an early adopt. I guess most of your subscribers would regard me as a late adopter. Malcolm there is no judgment. We all having fun in this party. And whether you're listening to this podcast with the first one week or three is in. However long i've been doing it was two thousand shows. Then we're all the same. We also i'm here to learn and have fun and just enjoy a whatever stage you're out with the just embrace it and loving it. Andrew is next andrew acumen. I realized i could go. Ev when bmw announced the i three with range extender. Any interesting ev available. At that time before that. I'd bought the first run. A to z in the country. New in may twenty twelve as a fun vehicle. Wow hundred that's amazing The he was visiting the geneva motorshow in two thousand eleven and the he drove one and then preordered as soon as you go back. He ordered the on launch day but got to in march two thousand fourteen captive for five years now has many electric man android that many electric. I love it. What a little roller skate. Just sticks to the road. Doesn't it the way it's called different things. Many essay or mini electric in different markets around the world. But the one here in oxford. Just a great fun little car like that is. That is a perfect car. For low center of gravity. You can be doing fourteen. Doing sixty grey cup brilliant. John eighty is next an emailed to say back in two thousand nine when mini launch the trial. Many i've wanted an av ever. Since he just took the plunge in twenty twenty he bought the kona evaded berlin. I mean what i you say. What size battery battery sizes on the kind of the big one. Sixty four kilowatt hours. I haven't met anyone who owned one not absolutely loved same goes for the owners and goes for solely v owners. Let's talk about ed's next ed teen a few years ago. We were visiting friends. I remember when we do that. See friends and family dice. Who had really a leaf. And they gave us a test drive and i was hooked and purchased our own leaf shortly after and finally we should wrap it up a civilised. Billy is an electrical contractor in new york city We started the to increase the capacity of incoming electrical service to a house. That didn't seem to be necessary. Is nothing in sight really needed. It was further requested. The there was a separate hundred. Mp single phase fade in. The garrick sparked my curiosity when the job was almost finished. So nothing that warranted that amounts of power The owner was happy to give us a tour And he's brand new brand new in two thousand thirteen tesla model s and at that moment the spell was cast. He could think of nothing else relief. Then he bought tesla simple simply the idea of having a vehicle. I could feel myself not depend on anyone else or worry about the changing knock. And that's why i love as well. I actually adore being in control of how where. And when i feel my car and It's not like an ideological sticking it to the man kind of thing You know. I'm about to move into the countryside and become one of those survivalists and and try cut myself off from the well. I like it. And then the more i thought about unlike know with petrol and diesel you are at the mercy of really a handful of people in companies in the world and the decisions that they make for their own benefit and interest and everything trickles down from that and i was like i like being out of the i like being out of the grasp. I like feeling up. okay. I still have electricity bills to pay. Largely people fix their electricity. It's the same for you but here in this country people often a like a twelve month fix with the home energy so like i know what my fuel bill can be now. I am different case. Because i'm on a half hourly tariff so my electricity is often very cheap in the middle of the night but very expensive at four to seven. Pm in the afternoon it changes every night. it reflects the great usage. And i love that. Because i can change my life so if i see that literacy is going to be expensive tomorrow i can change my behavior. I i wouldn't charge the today. 'cause i can see tomorrow. It's gnaws windy or sunny so there's not as much cheap electricity around so i like it because it's a way of nudging me to be a better electricity. Consumer that's just me time for a new question of the week. Yoga of the show read out on sunday. And try this one on for size. Whoa do you want to be able to do a. What do you want to do with your car from a mobile app or a web dashboard. What are the basics right. What are the basics that you want to be out of from your phone. Your tablet your computer to control your car if anything. Maybe it's nothing maybe like. Hey security lockdown. I don't connected or while other nice to have the optional things that you'd love to have on an app and what are the essential the basics and i just thought about this because we've had cold snap here and the last couple of days off and up before my wife and so i've defrosted the car for her whilst looking at the bedroom window so i'm like oh it's a bad morning all right open up. My phone defrost great job done and she's really appreciate it because she she doesn't think about it until guest at the front door like. Oh it's okay. The job is done but you know you got back a few years. And she was the one boiling. The cat'll thrive blowing the windscreen. So which was always interesting. Nothing ever went wrong. But i was thinking crikey. What else would. I like in the reynaud app up. It's pretty basic. Are they even use the runaway. Because it's it's got better. It's always been terrible. It's just less terrible now. I use one by a good zeti. Said e. d. wife any fellow owners listening to this podcast. The codes it. And it's it's a passion project for him lives in the same town as me who need Not that shocking but anyway he. He lives in pool as well. Must get him on the podcast. Not i can meet him in person. What was it but it's so good. Works on on. I think My mac my phone. It's just a lovely interface. Works really well always works. So i use that one but it is again. He's limited by blamed. Do so what would you like Just limited ounces out next week on sunday well. There are nine hundred. Seventy one preview shows in the archive. Wherever you get your podcasts.

"raj narayan" Discussed on EV News Daily - Electric Car Podcast

"Great saving. It's an suv out next year. It's a big car than the leaf. It's going to be more expensive called the leaf. I think you know they. They start to drift into semi premium. Testimonial three territory and suddenly. It's a call that will be more of a complete electric car package you know. Then the life of the has the al cliche. No thamel management liquid thermal management on the battery. But it's true is true and the aria fixes all of that so chadema mode disappears. I think he stays for the home market of japan but either way be really interesting to see. What do you think nissan should do next. Of course they have a big plant here in the uk a vested interest. I must admit there. Since some and i want to see them do well. I want to see them. Try and fumble out their way through the decade with calling electric vehicles. You know they series hybrids that really on anything. But i A generator and if they say back and been great we made neva. You didn't didn't make an easy and it's not zero emission vehicles zero emissions going forward and not going to be able to drive into cities and even be sold after In some countries twenty twenty-five some countries twenty thirty they're investing in what they call cutting edge technology. Here's our new technology and it's going to be redundant so soon. I don't know they've got the engineers got the talent to might gravies will wait and see what they do. I'm hopeful for nissan. But there's five percents of me is cautious because they didn't develop the leaf out. The having that early lead like lead early with the prius. All they did was. It's a right but really none of the bits of different in the battery. Go big in the leaf but under the skin so many parts identical even when the third generation came out the same bit so goodness. I really wanted to do well. I'd love to know your thoughts. Those the big question of today is the headline story and sell as a day of celebration because they've done half a million of these things and for ten years. But what does this go next. Let me know and we'll discuss your thoughts on a future show okay. Let's talk about japan very quickly. Nhk the public broadcaster. They reporting a yesterday that they are aiming at the mid twenty thirty s to ban combustion. 'cause but how hybrids again fifteen years away not ambitious japan's industry ministry considering all cosby hybrids from twenty five onwards. It's not even going to be a thing you need to do lawmaking four because no one's going to be wanting anything on ebay in those times right let's talk next about awhile ago in the uk. They bought charge master out biggest charging network charge master how to think with the polar network but also there was pay as you go thing and it was a little bit it kind of grown over the years and bp of gone. You know what let's start again with. Let's keep with the best bits. The nine says now could be p pulse. They've bought together. Charge master in the polar network. It's a rebrand and it it makes sense is a fresh start and so. According to current news the subscription scheme continues eight could a month just less. And all of the ultra charge units that they have fifty kilowatt ones have contactless payment on now. Which isn't a law. But it is as good as a strong guidance but charging networks need to be doing this and so they've already done that it's great news. Bp bought them for one hundred thirty million pounds two years ago. And i said at the time because of this podcast is on the air at the time. hundred million. They stole it like absolutely stole it. They were laughing all the way to the bank for bp. That's a rounding error. That's money on the back of a safer in the board meeting. Nothing at all such a big network. It just positioned them They they let to the top for hundred twenty million quid. Nothing amazing stolen. Balkan of the century did really well could be foresight there for doing what many companies now scrambling to invest in the technology. Let's talk next about volvo. i s- banning in other words internal combustion engine Laws which stopped the being sold a more effective than giving people money and incentives to buy any view. That's the view of hopkin samuelson. Speaking f t live the digital conference volvo ceo samuelsson said incentives. Don't help build sustainable businesses. Because when that tap is turned off what do you have left interesting. Let's talk about the vw. Id three next. The best selling car in norway now annoy seven thousand thirty five. New electric cars are full. Electric cars were registered in the month of november. That was fifty six point. One percent down from the heady heights of seventy five percent we have seen With almost a thousand units sold the vw. Three the most popular models says chris elect drive now. Sixty three thousand full. Electric cars have been sold in. No way a real hotbed of in the world. Not the world's biggest by volume but by percentage eighty-three three number two already this year. They've been on sale for two and a half months. It was mid september. I believe i d three went on sale so two and a half months and it's already second in the overall statistics behind guesses. Yeah not the model three. It would be the each on. Which is the number one car that by mentioned model three. Let's talk about them now. A few months ago tesla's customer support representative in. China told some customers that the nf battery the cobalt free. It's called lithium. Iron phosphate that new batteries in the short range. The standard range plus model threes in china could charge one hundred percent as much as you want every day. Goofy life without adversely impacting. The health of the battery pack now. The first customers in europe have taken delivery of the standard range plus made in china. Best seven thousand of them just rolled off. The boat from shanghai and a few people are just starting to get their reviews and thoughts on the internet. according to drive tesla canada. He found this tweet previously the charging screen in the app. So if you've got the tesla app there's a little graphic of battery and it used to say it was divided up and it would be A little band range. This at fifty to eighty percents The brackets a fifty to eighty would-be recommended charge level and then from ninety one hundred percent asked. He said the would trip next to so. Don't charge you tesla all the way. Don't go past. Eighty percent is bad for the battery with the new lfg batteries. The owners of those cars. Don't have that on the app. It simply says one hundred percent. There's no trip anymore. It says the recommended charge. Limit is one hundred percent so goofy life. Uncharged those lfg trees in the standard range. Plus all the way the the only thing just started to happen in china and this is a really interesting phenomenon. I'd like to learn more about it. I'm taking this from just a few a handful of internet. Observations always be careful with that. People are using the superchargers all new. These new batteries. And because you can go to one hundred percent. They're sitting on the super charger all the way to one hundred percent. That's not the way to use dc false charges because it charges so slowly the the the more full it gets and queues forming a superchargers in china and people are saying like ninety percent. What are you doing anything well. I meant to charge to one hundred percent. And i am well. Don't do that on a supercharge so that could be an interesting thing that needs a little bit of education there of the buying public next. We'll talk about remark. Mattaya remark the founder of the says. Specs can cause damage to the ev industry. What is an sp ac special purpose. Acquisition company and it's all the rage this year in ev. Well the founder of the hypochondriac matter remark said at the same. Fd conference mentioned an auto blog saying that manages of spiked companies on how to the same level of liability and accountability. As those wanting to do an ipo an initial public offering. They're so much more kind of just legal stuff around it. So what is a spec. Well it's a blank check company. It's a small company. The floats on the stock market has an established track record of filings. With the us sec. The point of these companies. They have to within three years. I believe is the limit they have to then find a company to buy up all reverse merged with and often in high growth sectors in the ev weld. Faraday nikola fisker lordstown of all done it this year. It's a way of becoming a public company to obtain the influx of money quickly. Without all the paperwork that comes with an ip with the ever closer relationship between iraq vw. Gripe we could. Well see them Getting closer money's not a problem for them. I can understand why he says that causes a bubble in the and he's impressed with this way of av companies going the fast routes to being public butts. I don't think that remark has to worry about money at the moment. Vw cain through the porsche. Also whether remark will buy bugatchi or whether they have a large stake in bugatti in return for vw group having access to remix technology will say in. The past is talked very favorably about visiting the bugatti factory. I mean they make handfuls of cars right just saying how he there is eighth they were good at making 'cause anne there's so much that they need to learn about making luxury cars from someone like bugatchi just like not just fit and finish but just the level of detail made it. If you're going to sell hype because the of money like a con just be technology. It has to be just a very very desirable. And he still very favorably about yeti. So i'm sure he'd love that level of craftsmanship in the company. We'll see elon. Musk is next in the news. Moving to texas moving. Closer to giga austin at least according to several of his close friends and associates saying now told them he's moving to the lone star state according to cnbc most of time. Anyway between austin where tesla On the boring company based and the coastal village of booker chica spacex. Getting out of california is something he promised to do earlier. This year The highest income tax in the country texas has no state income tax. You know with ilan managing to prophets from his compensation package awarded in two thousand eighteen and an exploding chap price for tesla has awarded him a lot of money. It means that he could suddenly if you billions himself and also he's really down on california because of the way it treated co bid which he disagreed with and the stay at home orders The state's top lawmaker in texas governor. Abbot things that musk is moving as well telling. Cnbc's squawk box that must now has a texas driver's license. Okay next opel. A surprise opal slash vauxhall. A surprised the mukai has sold out another. Ev has sold out even before. Any customer has won this time. The mauka a european car and it hits the road in march opel slash vauxhall have said they were a totally surprised by the demand They have now according to electric sold out of the initial edition model but even the base. Model's production has been sold out for twelve months a attractive pricing and strong government incentives in europe reduce the price of the combi third and responsible some site for the high sales particularly in germany. But also out of germany sales have been very strong. And why do we keep hearing this story. This time. it's oxo that says. Oh we put an the on sale. Believe it people wanted it. I'd everybody both in who we should have made some more happens time and time again. Simony carmakers are saying. Hey we'd love to. We'd love to go electric honestly. Hey governments hey environmental groups. We'd love to go electric. But nobody wants to drive them. We've heard that time and time again. And then when a company does offer one it sells out so the market is that the supply is simply not and it's the companies that can get those calls into the market. That are doing well. So tesla have capitalized a now. Those companies like vw. With the id three four making them in good numbers really good numbers and they're making good causes. Well finding the actually put a car on sale at the right price and make enough of them and people buy them. Great niece muscle apple being surprised. Oh we made a really good cop. People wanted it.

That of what they say is a long range for the electric. According to automotive news europe the numeric costs from sixty thousand euros or seventy eight thousand dollars when he goes on sale below the eighty three thousand euros that tesla charges in germany for the model s. long range plus with one hundred kilowatt hour battery. Now i understand if some people say the mirai shouldn't be compared to more or less long range plus i get it They seemed like a different segment. Cal to me. but that's what. Missile comparison sorry toyota. That's comparison toyota Making toyota is going to target a tenfold increase in sales of the mirai in the last five years. They've sold eight hundred here in europe at toyota europe's powertrain bus. They build a paquet Saids to owes much of europe and i quote. It plays a similar role to what prius was doing. Hybrid technology and quite they're still pushing hydrogen. And what mike too wedded to the idea of. Hydrogen technology and being a pioneer like they went with the prius. They want lightning to strike twice and repeat the trick. They did it with the prius but they didn't capitalize on it now. They hoping they can be the ones that breakthrough with hydrogen or will say to be a one eight one. We'll see some people say online talking about japanese culture being too proud and admitting defeat and not that hydrogen is is is folly. now it's filed experiment. Nobody wants it for. Personal transport may be good for trains buses and commercial. But i don. I thought just disrespects the japanese culture. I don't know enough about japanese culture to kind of pro i remember. There's a formula one fan reading a lot about the failed project between mclaren woking in the uk and honda and how the english japanese cultures would just so far pau they. The the project didn't work. I don't to be disrespectful to the the japanese culture because it could be me.
