It’s a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. FOXCONN UNVEILS ELECTRIC CAR CHASSIS "Foxconn, the Taiwanese electronics contract manufacturer that's best known for assembling Apple products, has rolled out an automotive EV platform, part of a push to become a manufacturer of electric-car components. At the unveiling in Taipei, Foxconn Chairman Liu Young-way said he's targeting a 10 percent share of the global EV market as soon as 2025." says Autoblog: "The chassis is described as "open-source," with customizable elements including size, wheelbase, suspension type, and battery size. Partner automakers could fine-tune it to their needs, and Foxconn would assemble it for them. The company additionally said it plans to introduce a solid-state battery for EVs in 2024 that would be superior to today's lithium-ion electric-car batteries." Financial Times says: "The world’s biggest contract electronics manufacturer aims to become “the Android of EVs”, William Wei, chief technology officer, said at an event on Friday in reference to the open source operating system through which Google created a massive part of the global smartphone industry. Analysts say Foxconn is seeking to replicate its long-established dominance in the global manufacturing of personal computers and smartphones, the largest electronics category by shipments over the past 30 years, in the production of EVs." https://www.autoblog.com/2020/10/16/foxconn-ev-plans/ https://www.ft.com/content/149bc9a2-64de-4820-b002-4ded8f2d6ae4 TESLA TO EXPORT CHINA-MADE MODEL 3 VEHICLES TO EUROPE "Tesla Inc said on Monday it would start exporting China-made Model 3 cars to more than 10 European countries this month, joining a growing number of automakers using China as an export hub for electric vehicles." reports Reuters: "he U.S. carmaker, which started delivering vehicles made in its Shanghai factory in December, will export China-made cars this month to countries including Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland, it said in a statement. Elsewhere, German rival BMW is preparing to export its electric iX3 model, made at a joint venture plant in Shenyang, China, to Europe, while Daimler is shifting production of its Smart branded city cars to Hangzhou Bay." Tesla’s manufacturing director of the Shanghai gigafactory, Song Gang, said in an interview with local reporters: “We hope to serve global customers as a global factory,” Model 3 SR+ come with the Lithium Iron Phosphate LFP batteries which is a diversion from every Model 3 built so far. 170Wh/kg and 55kWh. It actually has a slightly HIGHER range, by about 5%. And recent reports about customer advice is to charge to 100%. TESLA MODEL 3 PRICE DROPS BY $3,300–3,700 IN NORWAY "the Model 3 just got some notable price cuts in Norway. The price of the Tesla Model 3 Performance hasn’t changed. It’s 499,900 kroner ($53,293). The price of the other two trims changed as follows: Model 3 Standard Range Plus: 430,900 kroner → 399,900 kroner ($45,937 → $42,632). Model 3 Long Range: 484,900 kroner → 449,900 kroner ($51,694 → $47,962)" repotrs CleanTechnica: "Norway is by far the top market in the world for EV market share, but the Model 3 is not #1 in Norway. After the first 3 quarters of 2020, the Tesla Model 3 is #5 in Norway — behind the Audi e-tron, Volkswagen e-Golf, Hyundai Kona EV, and Nissan LEAF." https://cleantechnica.com/2020/10/17/tesla-model-3-price-drops-3300-3700-in-norway/ TESLA PUSHES NEW SOFTWARE UPDATE INCREASING RANGE OF EXISTING VEHICLES "Tesla is pushing a new software update that is increasing the range of its existing Model Y vehicles after updating the range of new vehicles in its lineup. Eric de Monvallier, an owner of a Tesla Model Y Long Range, got the update and told Electrek that it increased the range of his electric car to 320-325 miles." says electrek: "Earlier today, Tesla increased the range of the new Model Y Long Range from 316 miles to 325 miles. It’s not the first time Tesla has increased the range of existing vehicles through software update." https://electrek.co/2020/10/16/tesla-software-update-increasing-range-existing-vehicles/ DACIA SPRING PRICING "The initial prices of the most affordable electric car in Europe finally start to appear and the first 100 units in Hungary were already pre-ordered with a price of 6.490.000 HUF (17.812 euros). This price is before any government subsidy and includes a VAT of 27 %. After subsidies the price drops to a more reasonable 3.990.000 HUF (10.951 euros)." says Pedro at PushEVs: "Unfortunately we don’t know if the first units include DC-fast charging capability via CCS, which allows to charge this electric car from 0 to 80 % in 50 minutes, but usually limited series are the most expensive and better equipped versions." Battery: 27,4 kWh (26,8 kWh usable) WLTP combined range: 225 km (140 miles) https://pushevs.com/2020/10/18/dacia-spring-electric-finally-has-official-prices/ FIRST VW ID.4 EXPECTED TO ARRIVE IN U.S. DECEMBER "According to Volkswagen ID.4 reservation holders, talking on the VWIDTalk forum, the first cars are expected in the U.S. in "week 52 of the year, December 17-24th." Volkswagen is calling and/or emailing customers about the upcoming delivery." says InsideEVs: "Those will be of course be the 1ST edition cars, imported from Germany, as the local production is expected no earlier than in 2022. Some buyers will be pretty happy with the December delivery, as it should allow them to quickly get the eligible $7,500 federal tax credit in early 2021. Deliveries in January will require waiting until early 2022." https://insideevs.com/news/449482/us-first-vw-id4-arrive-december/ PORSCHE HAS ALREADY SOLD 10,000 OF ITS TAYCAN "The Porsche Taycan has been a strong seller around the globe in its debut year, and in fact the company has just announced that its total sales for the first nine months of the year have surpassed 10,000 units – to 10,944, to be precise." says auto123.com: "The best news for Porsche is that the Taycan’s sales are picking up steam. During Q3 of 2020 (or July to September), the pace of production picked up and sales rose to 6,464 units, accounting for 8.7 percent of all Porsches sold. That sales total is more than twice the previous quarter, and four times the first quarter of the year. If sales remain at their current pace, Porsche will surpass the 25,000 mark – and odds are sales will only grow further." https://www.auto123.com/en/news/porsche-taycan-2020-sales-10000-unites/67506/ PORSCHE MACAN ELECTRIC SPIED "Obviously, the rain and fog didn’t help our photographers on-site but nevertheless, we have an earl…

#59 | Interview, Kimmo Rauma, VP Danfoss Editron
For this episode of the AVID Learning podcast Ryan Maughan talks to Kimmo Rauma who was the founder and CEO of Visedo Oy now part of the Danfoss Editron group. Kimmo tells us about his personal journey, his early experience in business and how he came to set up Visedo and the early years and then the transition when Visedo was acquired by Danfoss in 2017. Ryan and Kimmo discuss some of the key electrification areas in the off-highway market, electrifying machines like stone crushers and forestry equipment. Kimmo encountered many challenges and difficulties in those early days engaging with the market and convincing customers why they should be looking to electrify their machines. Kimmo explains that he came to realise that there was more to the business case for electrification than fuel savings alone. Passenger cars often get the big headlines, but there are major advancements happening using electrification to improve the productivity and efficiency in off highway machinery. Machines that often work 7 days a week and in one year will operate for more hours than an electric car would in its entire life time. But understanding the nature of the challenge and the business case to make electrified machines a viable proposition is essential. Kimmo realised the electric motors low speed torque delivery and ability to manage transient load conditions better than a conventional diesel engine drive system was the key to unlocking huge benefits from improved control and productivity. Listen to this episode to learn more about Kimmo’s journey as an entrepreneur from pioneering start-up to major global corporation and find out more about the challenges and opportunities for electrification in the heavy duty vehicle and marine markets.

#165-Jonah Bliss, Curbivore
You've likely heard of Harry Campbell, otherwise known as "The Rideshare Guy," and chances are, if you are a driver for services like Uber or Lyft, you listen to his podcast religiously; and if you don't, well, do. So Harry recently emailed me to invite me to an event that he's putting on next week, with the impossibly awesome name Curbivore. It's bringing together thought leaders from the intersection of the food industry and mobility tech, to discuss these unprecedented challenges imposed by COVID-19. Curbivore is being produced with a colleague of his, Jonah Bliss. Jonah was formerly part of the original team at Turo, so suffice to say, he knows a thing or two about the mobility industry generally. Harry thought Jonah and I should have a chat about what's going on in this particular slice of the mobility space. So I agreed. What's especially interesting about Curbivore -- and why I agreed to do this admittedly very promotional episode despite that I've received zero compensation for it of any kind; this is not a sponsored episode -- is the lineup of speakers which promises an impressive cross-section of people from the food and tech industries, and crucially, public/municipal organizations as well. Registration is free so you should probably register: Curbivore.co --- This episode is sponsored by · Charity Promotion: Democracy Works: This advertisement is part of a charitable initiative in partnership with Democracy Works. howto.vote · Charity Promotion: BallotReady: The goal of this initiative is to increase voter education and encourage your listeners to get the vote out during the 2020 General Election this November. https://www.ballotready.org/ · Charity Promotion: HeadCount: The goal of this initiative is to increase voter registration and encourage your listeners to get the vote out during the 2020 General Election this November. https://www.headcount.org/ --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/autonomous-cars-with-marc-hoag/message
