"And it's a gm car so gm will assemble the prologue for honda and acura suv as well. Both of which will go on sale in two thousand twenty four when they say seventy thousand a year. Does that mean when it gets up to speed like twenty five twenty six. Maybe not part of the press release wasn't clear humble hasn't disclosed which plot will build the vehicles. They haven't named volume targets for the accurate. Either dave gardner is the executive vice president of national operations at american automotive company and saying in a statement that honda will focus the prologue sales on california and other states like texas and florida. He said honda plans do add hybrid electric systems to some more of the us models according to a reuters dot com report. Today which i'll pop in the show notes if you want to read more very very interesting story. It's on olympic blogs and lots of people are talking about it and to me. That seems like a really low an ambitious number. But what do you reckon if you have a different. Take email me and tell me that i'm wrong. I'm seeing in in in the wrong way. Even toyota give a hard time. Say because dragon the hails but even toyota have big. It's targets than that. But maybe there's they still keep talking about I'll talk about this. Maybe some more or less on a special show like Toyo- toyota and honda ra many of the the japanese manufacturers the ones that ideologically absolutely obsessed with hydrogen and really won't hydrogen to work and it won't for personal mobility is via talk about this thing like the enemy is in the internal combustion engine. The enemy is carbon dioxide. And if we're going to get like our engines to be a bit more efficient and emit a bit less carbon dioxide. Well then we've improved it Okay yes i see that failed logic working around the boardroom table where nobody is. The culture is going to stand up and say absolutely wrong. So i don't know it'd be left behind. Who knows honda know their business far better than i do. So we'll wait and see how that one shakes out next. Gmc's hama the ev. But he's going to get so much excitement and then they sent aria a call that frankly should be on the market by now already have both been spotted in the same place of the same time. And it was an electrified. America charging station. It was a driver who was coming through to charge a youtube. Finally everyone's a damn youtube these days. He was Who was driving through the greater toronto and hamilton area to normal illinois to go and have a look at the riviera and he said while a supercharge today the happens to be next to electrify america station. I ended up spotting the hummer suv and the pole star to and this area all of them on obtain neom. As far as i know. I know the pulse dot says on sale. Isn't it maybe talking about the new. More refreshed pollster to the electrify. America's station was particularly detroit. He said and took some more photo's he says i got more content soon. Which is what we call everything. These days particularly youtube as money. I'm a content creator. Yes brilliant lump me in with the rest of them so really interesting. They are out testing charging stations. And it fills me with so much confidence because it's exactly what you need to you. Got the hama av ready the nissan. Our you already get it on the road. Who cares who sees it. We know the things look like anyway. Get him on the road. Start charging plug them in zero percent. Plug them when they're hall plug on me when that cold camel do some testing make sure when they hit the The road the absolutely ready for primetime. Next hyundai's ionic six appears to be a little bit delayed. This is a single source report. At least it's autocar magazine. Who i do trust but is anyplace i can find this story. Hyundai's second electric car. The onic six has been spotted on the road for the first time motorcars spy photographers have. Got some shots of it. But they say that the design is going to change substantially according to the korean economic daily. The launch of the ionic six has been pushed back to mid twenty twenty two to allow the body to get longer by twenty millimeters. I mean that's not much already. The bumpers and lights will be restyled significantly. The battery will get bigger. Seventy two to seventy seven kilowatt hours now. The vs belated launch says autocar has been attributed to a delay to overhaul the factory where it's going to be made on the site currently builds combustion sonatas and it's going to be rebuilt to make igam chaka's e. g. m. p. is the platform underpinning hyundai kia genesis. Now the seventy seven kilowatt hour battery pack. I will hang on. Let me be specific. Also say the battery pack is already available. I will say a battery. Pack is available. That has the same size. It doesn't mean it's the battery. Pack from the ev six. Yes it's the same size but it doesn't mean it's the same battery you know. People made that mistake with the hyundai kona and the kea eniro because it had the same kilowatt hours and they were like well. It's the same battery pack in both. Say it was one of the biggest misconceptions in the mainstream media like well. It's the same battery but what you know what you prefer. It's an entirely different battery. Supply the numbers the same. I think one of them was kind of one of those eljay oil. But you know you need to be careful but yes is the same battery size. The six doesn't mean it's getting the kea battery or it could mean it is. But that's a bit of a bigger battery than the ionic five on that one next be pay which bought out charge master here in the uk and rebranded network bp pulse. And i've talked about it before. I'm having some real problems of the minute. I've been telling up charging stations at debt that turned off. My cobb has been deactivated. I pay every single month. But every time i swipe the card it says invalid card. I've gotten onto car as well. They must have hundreds thousands of bp cards in there. That glovebox is a big corporate customer. Even cheekily tried my onto card when trying to charge my own car. Don't tell onto. I'm sure they wouldn't mind that. Said invalid card as well so look. The whole thing is a mess at the mini in my opinion well. Two of their big investments are losing tens of millions of dollars a year according to a reuters review financial filings with companies house which is corporate registry here. Bp she owns half of light source. That's a solar energy company and they lost a combined fifty nine point three million pounds. That's about eighty two million. Us equivalent in two thousand eighteen and twenty nine. The companies charging firm bp pulse also lost a combined. Twenty two point three million pounds. I related two years. It's by thirty one million. Us dollars as down. That's crazy amounts of money to be losing on a charging that work which it seems to me. They can't keep maintained and i've given up using people's haven't counseled my monthly membership yet. And i know that sounds a bit daf. I've wanted to support the company. And i'm still giving them my money. Yeah that does sound off. Doesn't it stop looking at them. Because i've been let down so many times on the network which is losing twenty two point three million pounds over those two years. How do you then say well. We're losing a lot of money. But let's invest more money. The can't even stand still let alone move forward. The company acknowledging its fast-growing energy businesses like solar and the charges will lose money at least until twenty five for bp pulse. They've got big plans. Though they want to operate seventy thousand charging points by twenty thirty. They've got about eleven thousand dollars now. I think Which is crazy. Stop building new ones. Stop by the ones you've got because everyone is really angry. The i've spoken to with bp pulse. We'll be peace chief executive looney. I'd love five minutes with him. Because i don't think he drives evasion charges on that station's he took ferron. He took office in february last year. He's gambling the bp can make the clean energy transition faster than its pairs share prices down. What forty percent. Since he took.

"But not the case with kim of america announcing today the twenty twenty two model year narrow evey refreshed better equipped and more expensive on the outside the narrow has the new kia badge on the front grille the tailgate in the steering wheel and i suppose the wheel hubs as well. The biggest change is the big ten point two five inch touchscreen now becoming standard. The entry level trim is nine hundred dollars more expensive. It's now thirty nine. Nine ninety thirty nine and the premium version is forty four six fifty so the spectrum the same the us only gets the big battery version. We get two choices of battery. Sixty four kilowatt hour battery. Api range two three nine. That's miles of course. Three hundred ninety five kilometers one hundred and fifty kilowatt. Electric motor very similar to the hyundai. Kona if they're doing is bringing us back. I think in line with the twenty twenty two Kona which had for three months the the new revised face. Kinda as i've mentioned a few times. I really really liked it for a compromise. Cow in other words account bill for multiple powertrains really good wi fi loved it as well should buy one absolutely by one but i said well. Let's look at some other options. I as well interesting reaction to this story Somebody i so online said the two three years ago. That wasn't a bad price. You know thirty nine full entry level trim but now the bolt is cheaper. The leaf is at least ten grand like fifteen grand cheaper now. Lots more competition and the id four as well so somebody saying that. The full has arrived. And the seventy seven kilowatt hour battery to wheel drive Id four has a thirteen kilowatt hour. Pack that's larger fifty kilometers more. Wwl tv range has better. Ac charging i thought that the new kate kona and the new narrow were eleven kilowatt ac. But if not you know the four has if you get three phase eleven kilowatt. Ac charging Sunny a lot faster dc fast charging than the inara bigger cargo area more passenger space and in europe. The id four is only four and a half grand will forty thousand euros more than the narrow sixty kilowatt hour so if you apply that pricing to the us should be thirty five thousand dollars. Pre incentives should be thirty five to thirty six thousand dollars pre incentives key getting to that limit on the federal tax credit which does bring below thirty k. Of course the four as well so it's is apples for apples and i see what they mean by that. That is a premium price for the narrow. Which is still a great ebay. By the way if you're narrow the narrow it's called in different parts of the world you've got yourself a great car but not a cheap cop next. Lithium ion batteries were pioneered many years ago. By one of the people He was a nobel prize winner by the way akiro yoshino. He's a professor. He's the winner of the twenty nineteen nobel prize for chemistry for his work on lithium ion batteries and he can take credit for the upheaval in the automative industry. Lithium-ion batteries In the first serious competition in a century to fossil fuels now the honorary fellow. Japanese chemical firm has been talking about electric vehicles and batteries. He has an ax to grind. So i think he's just a knowledgeable gentleman who is happy to share his thoughts two major areas of innovation. He says our key in lithium ion batteries he said one would be the new. Cathode materials and ano- materials. The second one would be the system where the electric vehicle is used in other words how people use electric vehicles how they charge them and how he discharged them. He said it's the nobel prize when he's it. With fuel cells hydrogen vehicles there are challenges on the technology and the costs but you can overcome them. If you think about the long term to twenty fifty autonomous shed vehicles are gonna come about. Hypothetically an autonomous vehicle could be run with petrol engine it could be electric and it could be fuel-cell it doesn't matter what the power sources but it does. Need autonomous vehicles need to replenish the energy. Somehow if the vehicle can't do that automatically without human intervention the system is meaningless. The same thing would be true for petrol or hydrogen right now. The automotive industry is thinking about how to invest in the future of mobility at the same time the. It industry is thinking about the future of my ability and somewhere sometime the also and it industries. That's going to be a convergence for the future of mobility. Wow fascinating one of the pioneers of your mind. It's clearly a deep thinker on this subject saying look hydrogen petrol. It's all the way of moving around but batteries adjust bats up so i'll to the straits times website in the in the shines. He's gonna read the full article. It's really really interesting next. The ford focus has been spied with a big mac. At-at screen the face. Lifted ford focus for twenty twenty. Two model year has a major upgrade inside and he spy photos pointing to the supersized infotainment screen inspired by tesla says dr dot com dot a year. I was a little unfair as the mac e in the family but yes tessler inspired them. They might have done who knows with the perspective of the image. It makes it difficult to confirm but it appears the focus will be the latest ford model to gain sink for the sink for infotainment system. Which houses the Fifteen point five inch touchscreen from the mac a four year of has committed to offering a plug in hybrid or all electric version of every vehicle. It sells but that doesn't kick in until twenty twenty six. That deadline conveniently follows after the end of current generation focuses lifecycles four years of the combustion ones than we all electric on the ford focus. That's a car that really does need to be all electric for the masses to in next lotus and a teaser image previews the future lotus. Ev lineup. Which will be made of up to five models with the inclusion of the via vise the hydrocare joining it from next year. We'll be a large suv. Now it still code-named type one three two then. The following year in two thousand twenty-three we see the arrival of a similarly sized four door coupe. Pay that is code-named type one. Three three and that shaping up as a model competitive it's a mid size segment next the d. segment suv. That's the tight. One three four that will arrive in twenty twenty four. That'll be up against like the bmw. I x three. Three of these vehicles will use lotuses recently announced premium architecture according to the magazine auto express and the website porter express dot uk. They say a fully electric car platform. The premium architecture is developed by geely owner of lotus for a global rollout of the lifestyle 'cause including the suv's and the photo coupet lotus confirming the premium. Architecture isn't an eight hundred volt system soap. It'll charge quick on a hundred volt. Charges were token two hundred. Well to the minute. I only five from hyundai is about two hundred thirty three kilowatts. i think. Peak speed youtube videos of showed porsche tycoon. Around to seventy in theory faster as well The latest lifestyle vehicles all made in china so low is an everyone loves. The cows made in china. The new wuhan factory. Which does i've been later this year. Coming up on the podcast volkswagen's electric van plans and the fastest selling av's if they used stick around that's coming up now. Jay leno is reviewing the twenty twenty two mercedes benz e q has. I love jay leno. Clearly a car guy. And you know if you're watching a youtube video cal lecarr guy so he's passionate about costs it can be. It can be whatever but he loves his vase and his and his petrol stuff as well. But i'll just say to begin with. I watched this video. I wouldn't have been surprised. If it was sponsored content. He was so a few sive about the mercedes. Benz e q had somebody from mercedes-benz on asking them softball questions. I don i i mean. They gave him a car to drive for a week. I wouldn't be surprised if that gave mccarthy kate because he was like this is just a half hour at ish from mercedes-benz he clearly says amazing things. About this car he got the mercedes benz e to drive around in In the local area he was impressed by the ease of use effortless. It was to drive. He talked about the vibration. The sense of ultimate luxury At one point. Jay says it's almost as if you're watching a video of the outside world because it's so quiet inside and it's just outside. Passersby is interesting. What you want from jay is to lift up the bonnet to lift up the boot and the flaps and to have a good old knows around. What what's this doing here like what's that why did you if you've got the designer for mercedes. Why did you why they're no cameras. Va miraz and make mercedes say well. Us laws won't allow it but outside of the us. Yeah we'll have cameras. It's better for the drag like any unappealing the polling to it in the show nights you watch it. I enjoyed it. i love it. I love jay but there was no clear he loves the car. He was abusive. A at that next. We'll talk about vauxhall. Well here i say vauxhall in europe you'd say opel vauxhall opel's latest electric van. The combo e has just gone on sale in the uk completing the phones lineup of electric commercial vehicles. The kumbo a starts at twenty five thousand pounds now. That doesn't include. Vat because of course businesses if you're vat registered you can claim back the vat from her majesty's customs including the government's plugging cochran as well. Gee to hit showrooms later this year the combo e brings the electric range of two hundred hundred seventy one miles rather i should say fifty kilowatt hour battery. Look you know the school. This is exactly the same spec. All of that commercial vehicles is solid as a rock fifty kilowatt hour battery hundred kilowatt. Motor hundred kilowatt. Dc charging that means you're full in thirty minutes business uses can get zero benefiting kind tax Something that we haven't really explored on this podcast benefit in kind taxes. One of those things that the the you can do through legislation to incentivize people to go. Ev hasn't gotta just be money off. The price of the cost for instance. Let me explain if a business owns a car and its employees. Get use of that personal Moving around then there's a tax to pay because it's a benefit right so we have to pay income tax on that and that's pretty onerous. That's why company 'cause a less popular here than they used to be. But the government's zero free days. Now it's one percent of the minute and it's two percent well. Two percent of the p eleven devalue it to the like the purchase price basically. Let me say that. So you think you'll two percent value of the car so this next year from twenty twenty two so you take a car. That is in theory. Let's just say forty grand. Okay i know eve as can be more. Okay say fifty grand. It's two percent of that. That is a thousand pounds. that's the rateable taxable value. Then you apply your personal tax rate. So again i won't go into a you know a long story about our tax rates it can be twenty or forty or forty five percent so you are in the twenty percent tax bracket than twenty percent of the thousand pound values at two hundred hundred. Yeah you have to pay extra for the use of that. And that's just that's just tax to the government for having use of a company com- that makes driving a company Very very attractive but if it's a commercial vehicle it's zero percent benefit in kind tax. They got that's my proof. Not i'm out. I forget this global podcast and seventy people. Listening around the world will be like what's he talking about so that you've got that's an explainer but if you will country does something similar or it's just one of the ways of not just sticking money on you know off. The price of the cop has lots of little tools that regulators and governments can do the actually. Because this podcast go. oh man. This is a massive digression. This podcast is a limited company. It's a business now. I started off making a few pounds. I'm so just didn't redo anything with it but it was making hundreds of pounds a month. I'm like okay well now. I have to declare that. Obviously you have to be within the the law and so i had to go back and declare everything and we set up as a limited company. Eventually which means it is only legal entity and it does make a small profit. Every i don't take a salary clearly the is not enough to pay my to completely live off but it does wash its face. Pays the bills et cetera So yeah this podcast could in theory own car and then i could drive that podcast car but i would personally have to pay some extra money in my income tax every year. will the combo yvonne from vauxhall or opel in europe can be a panel van. It could be a crew van. It's got to load lengths to specs the dynamic and the sport eve specks up link to yahoo news agency going to read. What are the fastest.

"For the all won t the electric pickup The car is the truck is basically ready for production and he's now raising the government approval to start delivery says the electric website the ceo agyei scarring says that the latest production units satisfy their safety and quality standards and then are waiting for regulatory approval. got a little letter from him to those early reservation holders. I'll read you a bit of it over the last several months. We've been focused on not only ramping. Production right butts also dining in our quality across five areas stamping body. Paint assembly and propulsion. That's the battery and the drive unit. This challenging process involves multiple build vases ranges of environments during the last year including validation tooling and pilot build vehicles critical. They say to the program with all this. I'm excited to report. That we have started producing vehicles that reflect all of our quality iterations and design refinements. We are currently working with various governing agencies on the final approvals needed site when that government approval comes in then. Hopefully those owners get their vehicles next. We will talk about the volt. The big recall bloomberg has any report on how the relationship with general motors and lg chem which supplies the batteries for the bolts. And you know the volt when they were making it. That relationship has really struggled. And you can understand why. The rash of bolt fires go us. Lesson was he's now ended up in a complete recall of all the vehicles as bloomberg explains by gelatin panic four years later the long distance relationship between gm and eljay is being tested like never before. Who is going to pick up the bill. The one billion dollar tab for the replacements. Gm last week recalled bolts eve as for the third time in nine months and the detroit based company replacing modules in more than seventy three thousand additional vehicles. They won't lg to pay l. g. Six and a half thousand miles away in seoul saying well look. The expenses will be divvied up depending on the results of the investigations and the root cause of the problem. Nobody wants to pay the bill. Both companies taken ahead and the share price is diving. Lg cam closing down. Eleven point one percent today after that. Gm news about the further recall of the bolts lg preparing for an ipo initial public offering for that battery unit. It's the worst possible timing. Three billion dollar recall and the news is worse than the actual numbers because it led to a six billion drop in their market value. It's the biggest intraday percentage loss in like eighteen months for the company. So bad news all around good news for the customers because they're going to get that cost fixed next sister company kia is talking about the new seoul. Av a car with looks that only a mother could love but very practical and with great range announcing changes to the soul. Ev in the uk. They calling it. The max with two x is the max. Now that'd be three. You get the idea pressure. Thirty two four four five so the r.i.p is just under the threshold of thirty five grand. It gets free government money. It'll cost you well. Thirty two four. Four five before any dealer discounts according to most at one dot com. What are you get on the soul. Well seventeen inch alloys. Black leather heated front seats. Led headlights heated steering wheel. Ten point two five inch touchscreen cup play android also Pretty similar spectra. What you get in the narrow on the hyundai kona next ford is doubling the lightning production target on strong prediman orders for the ford f. One fifty and ahead of the twenty twenty two launch of the vehicle. The company plans to spend an additional eight hundred fifty million dollars to meet that targets. Several people have told reuters. Reuters say that the number two. Us omega is now targeting annual production of eighty thousand ford f. one fifties but that's in twenty twenty four and it's doubled by the twenty twenty four plan was going to be forty thousand. Now it's eighty thousand. I think it's gonna go higher. People are really impressed with the vehicle. Industry observers questioning whether individual buys will give up gas-powered pickups for electric models bump commercial customers to buy with that head and all that hot They don't care that they lost five. Trucks have all been folds or not. Look at that number in the bottom. Right hand corner of spreadsheet. Is it cheaper. The driving av truck can if you're buying you know one hundred thousand of them for your fleets. The answer is yes. We'll have electric place following the launch of the second generation lightning in twenty twenty-five target then goes to one hundred and sixty thousand but again. I think you're going to get their way before. Ford mustang is the next four update today production capacity. Could well be one hundred and seventy five thousand vehicles a year if you take that from the battery side. According to clean technica plenty of caveats which they themselves cover. I'll give you the story l. G. is making five thousand. Mac a battery modules a day. There are ten modules h car. So that's five hundred battery packs a day. Five hundred battery packs a day over a year. Take off over a couple of weeks for factory shutdowns and all those kind of things but that would still be one hundred and seventy five thousand. Mac a yeah are they making one hundred seventy five thousand easy you no could they be. Maybe it's possible that the battery production though is being made in spurts battery production could be getting ahead of the vehicle. Production battery production could be for a different vehicle. Maybe they say but probably unlikely but it's always interesting to look at stories like this final fold story today. Customer trials of folds a transit of now begun fold has a customer trial going on right now the transit the all electric transit it launches to customers in spring next year. Ten of these transits are being used in real world scenarios. Delivering the post. They're being used by local utility companies lost mile deliveries and even grocery deliveries that being done in the uk in germany and norway says the energised website. The energy says the trials feature arrange of e transit's variants says the double cab. I mean there's three lengths and three heights. Isn't there of the transit chassis cab versions as well. it's up to four point two five tons and special vehicle conversions as well full gang serious with commercial vehicles right coming up very soon. We'll talk about a vietnamese av company and fiscal raising money. Maybe for the next stick around. We'll talk about that. Although i soon. Now we'll talk about the to any ac the skoda any iv suv their first all electric vehicle based on the platform it's skoda's version of the four or the audi q.

"X. Name is over here in europe in the us. It simply the id four all-wheel drive for some reason. I don't know why they do it.

So rapid brisk without being face melting. They say that both confirmed. I defy variants will come with the larger seventy seven kilowatt hour battery pack. And while the id five prototype that they would driving last week was wrapped in camouflage they said that you can tell there's been changes from the four up at the front. The id five gt x. Gets the same face as the. Id four gt ex. And the rear gets that sweeping roof line and a large spoiler as well. Will they say the maximum charge right is still the same as the four hundred.

Ticon which is charging at two hundred and seventy kilowatts eight hundred volt system. They say that volkswagen is believed to be working on increase charging speeds by means of a software update. But look if it's an increase from one hundred twenty five to one hundred and forty say they've worked at some thermal management. Maybe even hey hundred fifty. If it's possible the point of that platform. When it was the start of that work was done. So many years ago was to provide something that could work at many price points also be affordable and work with technology. I think that was made sense to vw. He wants to make tens of millions of these cars so yes. Hyundai group's hyundai kia genesis. Also been working on this that their own platform that is eight hundred volts. The does charge incredibly quickly. Vw opting not to go down that route for their mainstream cars. And i think price would have come into it so yes. They know how to do it because they do the audi and the porsche than not doing with this platform that the id cards are on. And i don't think that's a great shame but if you disagree with me let me know in. The comments look charging at one hundred and twenty five kilowatts with a really good consistent charge. Cov- is better than a car that will peak two hundred but then fall off the cliffs tino its pros and cons and i think those cars charge just fine for me. But i'd love to hear from you a little bit of news from new york. Next on the podcast. The upcoming new york international automobile show was just cancelled. There's a growing incidences in the us. Many us listeners will know this faulty well more. Covert delta variant cases are being reported increased measures announced by local officials to stop. The spread has meant that the new york international show has been cancelled and over here. We don't have that kind of anti vaccine thing that i know that the us has and about freedom. And no one's putting injections in me. But for god's sake just get a jab if not for you because you're superhuman and you'll think you'll never die from kobe. Get the damn injection. So the rest of us can go and look at cars at car shows. Yes selfish gets next. We'll talk about the auto show that is happening. After a four month hiatus the los angeles auto show. We'll take over once again. The convention center in november with migration to electric fleets top of minds of the likes of governor gavin newsom and the mandate of all new vehicles in twenty thirty five being zero emission. The spotlight this year's show in la. You won't be surprised to hear they'll be so much focus on electric cars. According to the la business journal website. That reported this story the av makers that will turn up. We'll be offering test drives to potential consumers. Forty five thousand square foot indoor test track. I think that's such a good idea. Because most people have a switch flicked when they get in one combustion. Fossil lovers can understand with the head about electric cars. They'll get motors and batteries but a lot of them will say well. I'll never drive any. I just like the experience of driving a sports car with exhausts. A noise and drama. But you put somebody in an ev. Let them drive it. Let them experience the instant. Talk the the smiles that you get from driving one and so many people even if an instant convert they at least understand that. This is an witchcraft. Hey batteries are okay for the next in the news. Today for the first time in their hundred eighteen year history ford will spend more on electric vehicles than combustion vehicles that starts in two thousand twenty three an executive in the company said it was planned to be said but it was on monday. The chief operating officer for north america is lisa drake and she mentioned the twenty twenty three number while discussing their investments in electric vehicles on a call was doing early this year that they were increasing their investments in electrification to thirty billion dollars between now and twenty twenty-five toppling to detroit news dot com. He reported that story in the show notes. And that's good because that sounds like the investment at ford is going to go past a tipping point other car makers over the years have said something similar but if you look at the language they've said we'll spend more on electric aren de than we will on combustion r. and d. and that's very different like there's so many dead ends approaching petrol and diesel. Yeah you can make some small gains but you wanna plow a ton of money if you are in. Oem into your electric programs. So that's not surprising. They should be spending more money on r. and d. but this sounds like full actually assigning more money to electric cars in their entire budget. And i think that's a big deal. If i'm reading this one correctly next hyundai taking aim at tesla and the model. Why would that ionic. Five claiming that this the first model on their new platform will beat any of the competition including the model. Why at charging in an interview with automotive news the manager of electrified powertrain development at hyundai kia america is ryan miller and ron was explaining the company's expecting the ionic five will dominate any of that competitors in the miles of range added per minute in a false charging stop and that includes tesla because tesla a one of those that will publish their peak charge. Right many carmakers do. But also it's really interesting how you know youtubers or reviewers all companies like fast ned for instance the charging company over here in europe. They really good a customer education and outreach. They'll they'll publish. Charge curves of caused the plugged into that charges. They really good at stuff. Like that and peak right is only one metric and so many of them will hit a peak rate but then within a few minutes. Drop away decline slave down in optimal conditions. The ionics on five's battery pack will take more than two hundred kilowatts all the way to fifty five percent and that's a really came at trick says green reports dot com. They say that it places. Individual battery cells in the hyundai kia platform indirect contacts with the cooling plate and allows for very rapid cooling during fast charging which. I didn't realize i've never really looked at you know understood well. This platform does in terms of management. But that's how they do it a direct cooling play in contact with the every individual cell to manage those temperatures when you pumping a ton of current into them. let's talk a little bit about mining. Now let's have a look at tesla. They're lithium supply for next year could be affected by north carolina. Mining projects failure to stick to the agreed production. Time-line lost tesla side signed an agreement with the piedmont lithium developing a new lithium project. In north carolina guests in county wasn't it and the maker agreed to by a third of piedmont's plan one point six million tons of annual lithium production. That now won't be happening. Only agreed timelines inside vs telling races. They would delay the shipments of lithium to tesla as it doesn't have a definitive date for when they deliveries could begin. They haven't yet applied so the will be applying for north carolina mining permit this month but the states may well delight. There's a possibility they'll say no and completely block it off ending. That's a huge problem for tesla. They'll have many supply chain points. It's definitely a bit of a pain. Probably understating a little bit of someone's tearing their hair out in the in the company. But i don't think it's a huge deal for tesla. Now an article on sky news here in the uk pointed out that the global lithium shortage could put the brakes on ev acceleration. And they say that sales could slow down because of a worldwide shortage of lithium needed for car batteries. The importance of securing a supply of vital metals like lithium was highlighted as calm because a pouring billions of pounds into electrifying their fleets according to sky news dot com. The uk has committed to go net zero by twenty fifty and has no lithium production of its own. We do have some areas of cornwall dan. That's in the southwest which are looking promising. Meanwhile the coal materials critical for new green technologies is soaring worldwide. And it's forecast that lithium demand triple by twenty twenty-five loan to one million tons a year and double again by twenty thirty. We'll keep it on these kind of stories. Actually because i'm seeing more and more of them so i'm learning. Maybe as you do as well but i'm learning which was not my forte by any means about things like supply chains and so that's an area that i'm spending some time this year learning about understanding about the raw materials that go into our either these like in south korea l. g. s. k. and samsung announcing their plans for electric vehicle battery mini mineral material acumen and the development notice to overcome the ongoing onto supply and improve the tech at the same time the south korean battery materials supplies as well are increasing their investment building things like cathode material plants with annual production capacities in the case of one from posco sixty thousand tonnes in south korea for the cathode material and spending six hundred billion won investing in that from the beginning of next year so these stories fly round. I'll try and pick them up and reporting them to you as i find them interesting and relevant to what we talk about right coming up on the podcast very soon two-wheeled fun and the world's oldest av driver those stories on connected by the way stick around. We'll tell you more very soon now. Let's talk about the association of fleet operators over here and they've introduced their first ever evi van course if a fleet wants to make the switch to electric the now offering a couple of hundred quid to sign up to it taking place in september and they said one day electric car course. They look at the electric light commercial. Vehicle ecosystem vehicles evaluation total cost of ownership. And how you operate them and also the future of where they're going as well puzzling to fleet world in the show notes if that does affect you interested. I'll pop link you can sign up to it and join that zoom call and learn about fleets going electric next. The city of albuquerque introduced a new electric dealer program designed to enhance the ev purchasing experience. And help increase purchasing and leasing in the albuquerque area through the program like oh dealers can take advantage of specialized training and educational. Materials says c. a. b. q dot gov dealership. Training lasts about an hour twice a year and covers how to engage with av buys. Ev charging an overview of albuquerque's v. programming and dealers have to have inventory to sell and charging stations on their lots in order to be certified and actively selling eady's as well and they have to share that data with the city in order to take part in this on the way we'll talk next about two stories coming from india and again we not do love indian stories but when you look at the population the potential of cleaning up the air there we really should. All electric is the electric scooter company in india and yesterday. The show was talking about the scooter. They're launching and gotham date august fifteenth. So not to waged over a week. All electric has a massive factory to manufacture these scooters and the first phase of the factory is now complete. But so much more work to do when the scooter goes on sale to the public. The factory can build two million scooters a year which will allow all our to sell in india but also export globally according to radar dot com. They say ahead of the launch all is saying this will be one of the best in the category speed range and a choice of colors as well. I'll check out their website a couple of weeks ago. Maybe the iphone adverts going back years when they introduced the iphone colors was it. I dunno using silhouettes all that the one with you to something either way. It's that kind of the pictures on their website. That kind of like. Hey look at these vibrant colors. You can get your scooter in just boring black white. That's a big big selling point but also got some boot space or you can still you helmet and you shopping. And all those kind of things. They launching their own network of charges as well in four hundred cities across india. Hundred thousand charging points eventually and their bikes will charge up in about eighteen minutes to get to eighty percent staying in india. Bounce is a company there is turning old scooters into electric scooters there a ridesharing company they retrofitting combustion skase's with electric motors. And they said it's a game changer. In going av through traditional bikes though the traditional bikes are miles ahead. In terms of sales sometimes the engine is kaput but the bike is still fine. Well bounces found that turning these ones into. Evs is a win win. Both the budget and the environment. According to the deccan herald four months ago they did it with one hundred old scooters and made them electric and they convert their own vehicles but also do it for their customers as well. You can pay for that service so that is another way of not just scrapping a whole vehicle on recycling a bike when it's reached the end of its life for the engine if there's nothing wrong with the the actual bike hey retrofit electric and off we go again that's brilliant. Let's talk a little bit about norway's oldest evey driver. He one hundred years old but when he was nine thousand nine he fancied buying a new car. He had a subaru of the time and he wanted to go electric so he bought himself an. Mg zet s. e. v. They interviewed him for the norwegian. i think it's like the ev association websites and they said that. What made you buy an idiot. Ninety nine years old he said i found. It was easy and affordable. The electricity is very affordable. it goes well with charging. He has a charger instilling miscarriage. That came with the car. He charges once a week and it lasts the whole week for the journeys that he does. He goes shopping. He visits his sister. Who is a hundred and three years old by the way and there's no upper limit for the driving licence in norway but when you get to eighty you have to have a health certificate. Which of course he's passed. I'll leave you with this. The interviewer and again. This is google translate from the norwegian website. But they say we asked him the most important lesson that you've taken from a one hundred years of living and he gave this answer that you have to be good to other people nice okay. Let's talk about question of the week with my ability. Norway dot com. What's the ideal location for charging port on an ev. Well petrol filler caps and normally in the same place side to side at the back of cows to put petrol and diesel in. But what about as they are all over the place wherever the manufacturers deemed to insert them. But that's a nightmare for charging station designers. The cables have to be long. I see cars parked a terrible angle just to get to the charge..

"To make tesla's so-called forty six eighty cells. That tested will make themselves but when other people to make them for them as well and held up the The battery ramp of the forty-six eighty made by tesla. But but panasonic to audi a. releasing two more versions of the key four or the key for each on as they call it with the sales debut. Well underway the key for each ron and the cue for e-transport back back in april as now two more versions as a sport back version of the forty. That's the longest range in the whole fleets. And there's also a forty five version of each on quattro seventy seven kilowatt hour battery on the sport. Back one hundred and fifty kilowatt motor on the court so that starts forty nine thousand euros by the way so two thousand more than the normal suv shape of the forty. If on that sport back. Let's swoopy back so you get a bit less car and you pay two thousand dollars. More the forty-five each on quattro is think of as the counterpart to the skoda. Any ivy eighty if you like so big battery again. Seventy seven kilowatt hour battery all wheel drive four hundred and twelve kilometers four hundred ninety kilometers of range depending on how you spec the equipment next. We'll go to the uk where planning applications and now submitted for nissen and they're envision a ese. that's the name of the company battery partner to build. A new gigafactory in the northeast says some london. It's going to have nine gigawatt hour capacity. That's nine gigawatt hours worth of sales every single year. Part of a billion pound partnership between this sunderland city council creating a thousand jobs in the area construction. According to the sunday echo newspaper next year in two thousand twenty two. If these plans are approved batteries will stop being made in two thousand twenty four for one hundred thousand a year. That's not going to be the leaf that number so maybe the aria will also be built in the uk. That's not confirmed by the way but maybe Other nissans will be electrified by then looking at things. Like the cash. Kyw big seller can be putting batteries even for plug in hybrids and made here in the uk looking out the e cantor. Which is a lightweight delivery van. It's not a small panel van but it's not a big semi truck is delivered more than two hundred and fifty of them now around the world and the dime lift trucks. All electric light duty truck is in production. Now seven point five ton vehicle so give you an idea of the the size of it. Range of over one hundred kilometers out of one hundred thirty kilowatts so not for meghan long distance but inner city emission. Free deliveries the fuse. E kanza has just been confirmed is now being operated in nine sixteen different countries jemmy franz netherlands. Uk portugal denmark island norway finland spain italy austria switzerland. Us japan and new zealand. And of course. I think a lot of tesla semi truck takes up all of the attention in terms of commercial. Ev but there's so many more of them out there and they are being delivered right now in smaller numbers. I must admit. But i always want to bring you that news to remind you. These vehicles are out there and they're being used day in day out and saving diesel emissions. Love it right. Question of the week with amiability norway dot com so with almost two thousand sorry always three thousand supercharging locations now globally and twenty five thousand. Stolz what do you think of tesla's plans to open up the network to everyone. Email me your thoughts. I'll read them out on sunday. My address is bala would ev news daily dot com. Can't wait to hear from you on this one and how it could work for you. And also for tesla owners. How do you feel about it. How we fund this podcast. Now if you're not a patriots subscriber you might hear the adver on this show and that's also how we get a little bit of money and it's not much but it does pay the bills and the streaming and etc but patriots.

"If byod so. The dolphin may be in europe. Which i think is of that plan outside of china at again a very foldable price. So you got to think about different segments of the market. Lots of people contact me or see these comments on on chats and forums from single. I'd like to drive a navy but that too expensive. Well there's the dutch has spring on the market and the byu dolphin on the which is gonna take you one hundred and fifty miles off and get maybe one hundred twenty for the short range. Wamba can the cost fifteen grand monthly payments most most people monthly payments. Well all of a sudden you know that those arguments start to go away. It won't be as cheap as buying a second or third hand. Diesel car with a hundred thousand miles on the clock it just. It just won't be yet but these are making their way to the second hand market and the more new ones that are so the more at the top of the funnel and the more secondhand one's that'll be available. I'm i still think maybe it means a bigger battery but maybe forty five kilowatt hour is what they go with if the price is chief. Gm today yesterday really friday announcing the expansion of that what they call altium. John's three sixty that is they're charging initiative and it's aimed at businesses and fleets and they are helping to accelerate adoption in business customers. Altium charged three sixty gives businesses and fleets access to a network of what they call preferred charging providers. It's a bunch of smaller networks. That have all kind of clubbed together to be pov. Ltm charge three sixty experts. According to the detroit news dot com website see commercial customers strong candidates for early adoption of electrification giving the potential cost savings on everything from fuel to maintenance that make a see commercial customers cases of new revenue streams ltm charged three sixty fleets but also support home charging so many employees take their work van or their work vehicle. They work truck. They have to take them home. Because there's no eh stole them overnight and the gm plant will also provide those people with access to charging and sixty thousand public charging stations. Porsche a next. The news porter is unpaced to double the tycoon. Sales forty thousand units. This year is on. The horizon as electric becomes an increasingly important part of porsches lineup announcing today they have delivered twenty thousand tycoons in the first half of the year so it's pretty reasonable to think well they can do that in the second half of the year. Porsche said the all. Electric tycoon celebrates a special success. Nineteen thousand eight hundred twenty two vehicle deliveries. It is just under the level of two thousand twenty a whole for just a half of a year by this. Latest member of the model range is on par with the sports car. Icon the nine eleven electric reporting vets. Tycoon is quickly becoming the most important non. Suv vehicle in porsches lineup. Yes it is but hey why for the mccann. Electric to arrive. I know is that's suv style. But it's going to be wildly popular in electric foam. Next homes with an arch. Points are worth more. According to this article in a scottish newspaper called the daily record a survey by riverdale leasing found the homes on the market with ev. Charging already installed were thirteen percent. More than the average of houses around them. I find that staggering can understand you know a couple of hundred quid being at eight or the convenience of them just being more marketable because You know to ten grand solar system here on the roof. You're talking about georgia. The survey did conclude. The more brits are looking for electric cars as well ninety thousand such a month online right now and the charges are valuable marketing tool of potential home sellers and home buyers says the daily record. They analyzed one thousand house prices in fifty uk areas and homes that have electric ev charging installed with more than the average and according to the office of national statistics it could add tens of thousands if the average price of a house. Obviously the mileage varies It would add twenty thousand pounds. I don't believe this story. I think adds something. I can't see adding that much to a house. Maybe i don't know. Maybe i misunderstood this research. Maybe a don't get me wrong here. The kind of people who have. Ev's maybe the house is a worth more. God that sounds snobby. I'm just saying even more expensive to buy at. The moment are no play thing for people with spend money because by no means that we wealthy But eve as a certainly something that you have to find the money to do it makes sense. You already have to want navy. They are more expensive to buy new if your cash by the monthly price is greater than the cheapest way to go motoring and so. I don't know i'm just. I'm just floating that idea. Maybe you know banks snobby but maybe the kind of people who have ev. Maybe the houses are worth more. I don't know maybe. I'm just digging a massive hole hair. Let me know if you think. I'm a massive hole anytime you want to make sure talk about zero motorcycles launching the new f x a i love the look of this This zero company has given their electric soup omotoso pampering. They've dropped the idea of a removable battery for a larger integrated pack the f. x. Ailsa cut the price Looking at the same motor from the effects and the fx s so forty six horsepower. Not huge but look enough for a top speed of eighty five miles an hour. Hundred and thirty seven k. P. h. thermal management will slow. You down to seventy five the f. x. e. uses a seven point two kilowatt hour battery. Pack for daily commutes. Probably fine because the range around town hundred miles hundred sixty case But if you put it on the highway doing seventy it's going to do about fourteen miles. I'm afraid not the biggest. But you know i think so much fun to be talking about two wheels transport next. Vw id for. Max van has gone on sale in the uk. Forty eight thousand five hundred ten pounds. I i don't know why should feel so bad about saying these are expensive. And you know you gotta have some some money to buy one because look at that is vw. Id four pretty average family vehicle.

"Case you get the government ground as well and if you don't add any options staley's no no alloys on that and it's got the pretty basic trim but i think that'd be so good to get more people in cars like this and more choice is better than new. Pricing strategy affects the three as well under the new pricing two more variants. Now become eligible for out plug in car. Grant aka free cash People who was telling me when. I say that because the people who know about economics email me. There's no such thing as free. Cash okay Governments printed it's not free okay On you pricing The variants become eligible for our plugging. Cochran's let me say that that's a total of six of the. Id three models the three family pro and family pro performance and now priced under thirty five thousand pounds. Which is the threshold route. Two and a half grand off These models now priced at thirty three and a half and thirty four nine hundred sixty respectively just squeezing in that of course with you grown. That's one and thirty. Two and a half highly equipped macs and range topping tool have also been reduced. They get price reductions. Great news says dr dot com. If you wanna buy south ninety-three The range tapas go down by three thousand eight hundred pounds if you bought one yesterday less good news if you buy one today great new save yourself another four thousand pounds With seventy seven kilowatt out battery. Three hundred and forty miles wwl. Cpi range starting now at thirty eight. Which i think is. I'm not pretending that's not a lot of money but in the world aviv as to get that spec is just brilliant. Having a vw's press cite their official media site always interesting to have a look that they say this new structure Considerably increases the flexibility of the. Id three in the id four in the customers ordering so they gave an example. Let me give that to you. Previously not possible to configure the augmented reality head up display on an id three of the max and the tour right because the ones you could get it on now you can choose any trim level at the package and you get the head up display the augmented reality etc etc so a lot more configuration. Let me know if this interest you. And if it gets you over the line or is interested to hear from listeners. The address is hallowed evening news daily dot com still anticipate having their vide. And i can't wait to find out more about their plans I can make a few guesses still anticipates. The world's fourth largest carmaker hosting day on thursday unfairly more details around the strategy formed from chrysler and show grape. Psa emerging in april. The group has grown them in. Europe is now seventeen percent of new pure electric vehicle registrations from january to may says marketwatch dot com the Analyst matteo schmidt says it puts it second behind volkswagen on twenty five point seven percent and ahead of the renault-nissan alliance ahead of tesla while bank of america analysts. Expect the latest. Do deliver a bullish message on thursday. Making it clear about how they are going electric. They say that's the lantis has to put the pieces together. Explain the strategy on battery. Chemistry cell technology costs and things like vats the difference between the us and europe and sta lantis is reportedly going to announce although i think is kind of well known already that their electric vans are going to be made at ellesmere port vice a factory northwest england and so not just the pleasures and citron's all of the electric vans being made here in england which is good news. And i'm sure that there's been some lobbying and some government support a few few quick being thrown their way. I don't know that for a fact but you know. Sometimes they'll be government. Help always goes along white next. We'll talk about volvo. Timely and triton group signing an agreement to install operate a high performance public charging network for heavy duty lung whole all electric trucks and coaches in europe. It's gonna start in two thousand twenty two and the partners invest together. Five hundred million euros to install one thousand seven hundred high-performance charging points near highways and logistic points and destination points. Within five years the joint venture says fleet owner dot com. We'll have his own identity be based in amsterdam in the netherlands battery electric fleet vehicle. Operators can leverage fast charging supply game for forty five minutes. If you didn't know by the way We have a forty five minute. Mandatory rest period herring europe. See gotta stop for forty five minutes. You can't just keep on truckin and so if you're traveling long distance then you've gotta stop anyway see muzzle charge at high speed. And if not you can charge overnight on the slower charge. they're installing. I'll pop the fleet owner. If you want to read more in the show nights why it's packed. I have needs that i and it's all again really positive. News holy moly going on. Let's talk about tesla and the model. Y standard range in hong kong may confirm use of the l f p battery. Let's find out more about this elephant. The way lithium iron phosphate low cost in the standard range plus model three. But will it come to model y well the c. n. e. post published the the deal tesla made with at l. at battery supply to expect extend lfg contract would include sourcing sells for the model y now in china. Model y is either long range or performance. No standard range plus model wine deliveries for the cross iva astonishing in july in hong kong when we check tesla's website about the model y standard range for hong kong where is on sale right hand drive just as we need here just as australian aids so i'm hopeful i'd love model wine anyway Deliveries are starting in there in september. the estimated range for the model y standard range plus is molding. The model three shouldn't be less. it's more model. Three is to seven eight miles or four hundred and forty kilometers model. Y two hundred eighty three miles and yet the price increase. It's ten percent more so it's got a little bit more mileage by coupla miles few more case but a ten percent price increase in hong kong least over the model three s plus while according to the website also volition dot com although the model y standard range for hong kong could confirm the. Lfg battery rumors. That would be good because they can lead to lower pricing and even some Some better charging cubs in places where they don't like the cold so that's being worked on with software. The price range difference suggests the model y a bigger car or less error efficient car going further. The model. Three standard ryan's using the nfc batteries could actually have so this base model. Y could have the twenty one. Seventy cells are in the others so the same sells for s applause. Long-range and performance could do because there's a ten percent price difference from the model three of the same level as it were however. If that's the case then why wouldn't they sell it in the us as well because if they can get model y doing two hundred thousand miles on these twenty one seventy cells which are in oil cows. They should sell that the base model in the us. Why wouldn't they do that anyway. I'm really looking forward to finding out when the customer delivery style happening what is going on. What's the battery pack size. Who makes it and all that kinda stuff right. Got a couple more stories quickly. The new situation e space torah gets a price drop It's it's a fourteen thousand pounds price drope. I'll tell you why this isn't a great thing but first of all the new citizen or situation As i should say citron ace torah. It's a minivan if you are a people carrier the new range announced in the in the uk today but because they managed to get it under thirty five grand gets the in cobra of two thousand pounds. Like i said earlier. But they've reduced the price of the base model to come under thirty five by fourteen thousand pounds now. I've looked at the specs and the specs. They haven't taken out fourteen thousand pounds worth of of options from the old model so all they were doing was adding fourteen grand to make money on it. They have an overnight. Made fourteen grants worth if it was one or two thousand pounds off here and that every few months i think they're making efficiency savings. They're doing they have an overnight. Fourteen grand slashed. That's margin surely. am i wrong. Let me know if i'm wrong. 'cause i love giving good news on this podcast but i also get a little bit annoyed when a i can just slash fourteen thousand off a car. The isn't like one hundred thousand bound car just to get it below thirty five thousand that is surely just margin. They were adding that's not fair to buyers. Is it just may tell me i'm wrong. I'll happily if you think a missed read this anyway. The situation east by store up entry level model now under thirty five grants it gets two and a half grand off hundred and forty three miles of range of the wwl teepee test cycle so a price to you of thirty to grind. It's the business edition trim. So it's got at com cruise control apple carplay android auto big touchscreen fifty kilowatt hour battery hundred kilowatt motor hundred kilowatt charging so get to eighty percent in home for now. Really really really good specs if you need to shift nine people in a three three three configuration. This minivan is we get so many brilliant. Cause hearing your at my. Us listeners must be thinking great another car. we don't get anyway. Maybe final one audi each on. Gt question posed by quattro daily website. I love this collaborating about corduroys. Anything audi four wheel drive is interesting to me. But they are asking other porsche. Tycoons back for rickles a contact your porsche daily if you own one and get some more details on that Because it's not a you know there's been no. Injuries has been no accidents or incidents because of this votes. Make sure that yours does go back to your local porsche. Daylight because They obviously assim car like they have the same mechanical underpinnings so quarter daily saying the. Gt porsche does that mean. The gt has to go back to audi dealers because that hasn't been recalled So what happens. The twelve volt battery in the on starts to lose charge. I think will happen. Starts to shut down. The car always meant to happen. And so whether you got the small battery seventy one kilowatt hours. The big one thousand three thousand you'll take on. There's been. I think nine cases reported to the highway agency in the us so it probably doesn't affect forty-three thousand tycoons if they are being recalled quick software update not major. You wanna get yours done contact your porsche daiwa and they will help you out right question of the week with anyway. -bility norway dot com. So this is a fascinating question this week right if you had to buy one electric car today on the market today and it was the only car you could drive for the next three years. What would you get. I'll go for the vw. Id for gts x. Because it suits me my price point my family a not too flashy but still really great car. Big battery nice charging one hundred twenty five kilowatt so that would be me. It's a compromise cow ultimately. But would you go for one electric that you have to buy today. And he's the only guy you can drive for three years. What's it going to be. Emailed me a low at evening. News daily dot com. I read out yours on sunday.

We stunning all. My goodness might get now. I'll buy one if even halfway to that though they'll have a hit on the hands and it's the kind of vehicle that yeah i know i live.

But even then you know you haven't got a lift by the beach to one of these vans even then it will be depending on the price. Obviously be so compelling to have something like this in the driveway which would soak up all you know we could use it as a van it would suck up all the family judy's that we have now we got a little one. It would have bikes in the back and yet it's not so big that you couldn't drive everyday to the shops. I probably have that and the very small. Either you know an emo pad e bike. Maybe zoe or something for a second car but we have this first car because it's just the perfect size perfect utility and it's all the and it's actually this could be the first of the platforms that comes with a bigger battery. And not the fifty or seventy seven kilowatt hour. But the i mean the the concept vehicle four and a half years ago they said would have one hundred eleven kilowatt hour battery pack for combs that cars. You just make up numbers to sound good right but he does. They are an indication of where you're going but they don't actually have to make that but imagine this with a big battery because it's going to be less aero efficient. oh man. i'm so excited about it. Can you tell. I just want them to make it now. So why is this story important. Why is it the headline story. Because if they're now testing these mules with even a half finished version of the the body. It means they're on track. It's a two thousand twenty two vehicle here in europe.

"Am interested to see how that works interested to see the e. and of course the suv versions of both of those and then that technology is available to the whole company so full electric may back. I wonder definitely one really looking forward to Telling me more about this as we get to find out more so that's our first car which is going to be three quarters of the podcast today. Second call we're talking about is the audi q four h. On this is the vw. Id for is the skoda any ivy in saudi clothing and that is also a very very very good thing because audi styling appeals to me subjective. I don't know if it will appeal to outside. I think stunning inside. It's go buttons which breaks people's minds if they've come from a tesla but it suits me i you know. I don't like to take my eyes off the road when i'm driving. So is a a a mid size. Suv maybe it's an suv. Crossover pending on how you you think about it but you know the on the big issue. It's smaller than that right. So of course if you know like an audi q. Five perhaps that's the similar size for this two hundred and one horsepower. Electric motor seventy seven kilowatt hour battery two hundred ninety five horsepower. Jewel motoo sets up all-wheel drive. Of course it's audi quattro. nowadays it is optional. I'm amazed that. Make this in two wheel. Drive audi is famous for roy. Driving range of two hundred and fifty miles on this up against the model y the volvo xc recharge like say that the stablemates is going to be made in the same factory as the four as well the. Id three that factory in germany. There's a couple of models base price the of the cue for easter on forty slots around forty five grand Again north to sixty seven point seconds. I still one hundred and seven point six seconds not gonna win any drag race records. But then you can spec the audi e tron fifty and hundred ninety five horsepower. That will do the six second dash nor to sixty which already putting just about most combustion cars to shame when you get to that now just like the i four on the skoda supports charging one hundred and twenty five kilowatts in the real world tests on the four. I've seen it go a little bit higher than that as well. So slugger infra half an hour. Eighty percent bob's your uncle off. You go jobs a gooden. This looks like a great car for so many people. If you're in the minimalist thing go tesla if you're on the bigger version go for the hr or the pace the mercedes benz e see but if you want they size car with this level of comfort and and audi styling as well again when everybody appeals to me personally then this could be really serious car to look at bill on the platform and available in june slide.

At the moment in my opinion go noy next company often accompany a country often heralded as the way that we should all be looking at increasing eib market chef because a small country comes rebuilt built on fossil fuel. Revenues and a country doesn't by many calls but but but there are still lessons. We can learn new. I bought eight thousand eight and a half thousand new electric passenger cows last month in march. Besides there were just over four thousand new plug in hybrids noise most successful model across any type of course was the testimony three a two thousand registrations the s alexa. Then there was a small. But it's okay according to elect dr tesla's sort of the electric comaq shah was fifty. Six percents plugging share was twenty nine percent. The market share of pure Combustion vehicles with no battery tall walls. Nine point five percent and it just continues to drop. First time. it's been in single digits. I think actually in norway and the amount of people buying petrels and diesels in no way is now in the hundreds every month.

Finally enough i in the. Us is the spec you can buy in the usa right now and here in the uk. I'm not mega impressed with the first spec here in the uk.

Keep assistant of the lane change assists stuff. None of it's there's open stripped out and it's like okay. It's bit wade.

"Sticking up and free floating in terms of the screen. It was okay. It was a little high for my liking. It was too high. Forty t for me to use Kinda comfortably i. I'm used to screen spending a little bit further down but that would take some getting used to but had the two screens so has the screen behind the steering wheel. Which is the driver info. Had everything on that you need to know the spit nice and big speed. Because i did find myself going over thirty accidentally in the in the speed limit sections and then having to off because it's easy to go fast in a navy so that was nice. That and then the gear selector is attached to the screen on the right. And if you've seen the bmw. I three guests like to this. I would say is heavily inspired by that you turn it once for dr once again or click it further for be mode which should be stronger region and then and then often away and then you put it back towards us. Do neutral number of us region. Let me talk about that. Not super powerful. I like really strong region. And i like modulating my right foot. My wife doesn't again. that's very subjective. Thing people in the vehicle. It'll tell you You know with all suddenly you must have this. You must have that strong region blah blah blah blah blah but equally doing seventy on the motorway. And you let off you want a cruise. You want to freewheel. Because then a lot of region is not the most efficient way to get your destination like a really strong region and then just driving with one pedal but it was not strong enough personally for me but it was easy to drive so i just go in and drive. I guess is my first conclusion. Which i'll come back to the end of the podcast. I just got in and drove. So richard left in the car and so once the keys in the car. It's all there's no button on the vw. Id four so there's no. There is an on off button hidden if you want to turn the car on enough but there isn't get in the car you put it into drive and you put away which is the way. It should be an old levi's because you shouldn't have an on off button. It really need it again. At the end of the drive. I go in. I got to the end of the drive. I stopped i pushed the handbrake button which is kind of on the end of the shift and just left and i walked away in the cartoons itself off so my driving impression of is you could get into this from a combustion car and just drive and i think that's the key with the vw. Id full because they'll be people coming from guam's from gulfs from other vw's that finance is coming to an end. The lease is up right. Where do i go. What do i drive next and auditing anybody if they're gonna spend around forty thousand pounds. This car costs now. a should be thinking about combustion. 'cause it doesn't make any sense. A tool to be getting into. The world of diesels. Particular fills is exhausted. Replacements catalytic converters all of that nonsense because this car does every absolutely everything. I think really really well again not gonna win. The draft drag strip won't win the top speed ones. But a did absolutely everything. I could possibly want to really really well now. Didn't have a chance to play with the app. Or have a really good rummage through the car. I did not running on twenty inch wheels. Which is the first ide- spec. The twenty inch. Wheels looked good. Didn't have a chance to play with any of the driver assistant stuff. I did notice on my short drive. That pulled me back into the center of the road. So that must have been turned. I was drifting a bit to the right sent me. I was like oh okay. Didn't know it was very subtle and gentle and worked really really well like i said the screen was was good. It was bright there. I think they could capacitive or capacitive buttons. The run along the bottom of it the same ones that the steering wheel. Now if you've driven a recent vw. Like latest gulf. The steering wheel is just a brilliant piece of design. It's got clicky buttons. It's the evolution of everything that they've learned about usability. It just works the vw. Four doesn't have those house a shiny surface where the buttons are and there are some ridges so you can kind of feel your way but i know that when i'm driving cars that have clicky buttons on the steering wheel own more buttons. I didn't take my eyes off the road. If i'm so setting cruise control over reducing the know cruise control speed temporarily or you know whatever follow distance. I can do that just by touch. Signed goes for turning things up at like up and down volume wise. I can just do it in what there's nothing wrong with the knob and you know an an a physical button sometimes. Even take your eyes off the road for safe. This had some buttons on the whale. The i think they've got right yet. Because it gives you a little bit of feedback when you push it but a lot of swiping if you want to change the volume you can swipe up and down with your finger and the same goes for the heating but really just give me a volume knob because that isn't broken like that piece of design in the world is in broken. It's like light switches. I see a lot of interpretations now. Small lights and smart light switches. And or but you know what you go into a room a light switch it just works. It's a piece of design that doesn't need to be fixed. There's nothing wrong with it. I don't think i could get on with the steering wheel without a bit. I'd need a test a test for the weekend and have apply. Because i didn't like it but they apart from that i did pop in ecoed. I did papa income foot mode. They are some. There's a mode button on the big screen. That's one of those not soft touch buttons. You i mean. And i couldn't feel any difference so i'd like to tell you. Oh yes echo was very strong region and comfort dull. The accelerator in sport was really reactive. I was on roads that were thirty. Forty and sixty miles an hour. I couldn't really tell a big difference like maybe that's why i'm not reviewing house for a living the whole time. The cough l. very much responsive too. I wanted it to do. Everything just walked usb c connections up front and rear as well so loss of usability stuff in there in terms of families charging tablets for the kids and all those kind of things big enough battery like i say seventy seven kilowatt hour pack. Probably all you need. Let's talk to someone who has driven this car in one journey. Six seven hours from scotland to the south coast and what he thinks of as the owner of the car and richard from simon's s dot co dot. uk chat with him to ask about his impressions of the vw.

"On self driving cars apple also high loads of the tessler employees. Michael shah who schwer kuch. I think i say his settlement took on run-up wrong. He's the senior director of engineering for special projects that the car formerly tesla's. Vp of engineering. Big names went from tesla to apple. And they're not working on iphone. Cases are let's face it katie. Herbert from morgan. Stanley is an analyst and commentator and she said smartphones are a five hundred billion dollar annual industry. Apple has a third of it. The mobility market is ten trillion. Apple needs a two percent share of this market to match their iphone business. And of course people don't replace cars as quickly as they do smartphones. I know that i'm not pretending they done. But it's a big deal up a coupla concussed billions of dollars and take years likely. The reason why apple is talking to a partner rather than doing it all themselves as automotive news europe other technology companies wanting to expand into cars have been looking today partnerships as well as the iphone assembler. The time knees company foxconn. They put phones together for apple. They said last month. They working with jelly volvo and pollstar fame to make vase according to a new report from a longtime analyst. It sounds like apples picks The ag mp platform that is hyundai group. Say hyundai kia genesis. The volt platform. That's going to be the platform for apple's upcoming first electric car. According to gizmodo and his most recent apple analyst meeting lending credence to the rumors that apple's planning to partner with hyundai for the production of its vehicle said that apple had picked the agm platform is the chassis to build upon it and apple looking to invest in kia. These the news over the last twenty four hours several billion dollars as well. None of this confirmed by the white just pulling this story together for you. From various sources analysts people in the apple wells only token about phones and tablets watches all of a sudden having to talk about cars at. It's interesting right. The announcement will only come when they are one. Hundred percent. ready is my prediction. Having been an apple follower for a long time switch from android to apple pretty early. My my first apple phone was the three g the three gs. I wasn't on the first iphone but ever since you know watches and tablets and everything else. So i'm fully in the system. I you know. I i know i sound like i'm beaten down a little bit. I kind of am. I'd like to be able to move around but deny re buying the absence stuff. So i'm well in that wells. Not so much of a nerd. As i used to be like watching the keynote addresses and iphone launches sit down and watch the livestream and stuff. Then don't do that anymore but be really interesting. If apple did move into qasr who. They work with with an apple. Would you expect it to have those apple values and just be like a big glass. Shiny thing interesting isn't it. they can make They can make nice consumer products but a car is a different beast. And i'm curious. I'm looking forward to it and i call on white next. We'll talk about the spanish. Bits of vw sat and that performance. Some kupwara now in order to stick it to the middle lane hogger. That you're about to blast past cooper new l. bone which is out this year is going to have a push to post pass boost button. According to the boss of cooper wayne griffiths an ep. He's been talking to top gear in an interview. The elbow born is the cooper version of the vw. Id three now. The three has not that off in the south chance ready well i car on vw electric platform and say it. We're gonna make the cy alborn.
