Volkswagen To Display It’s ID.R And ID.3 Cars At Essen Auto Show

VW has announced that it will display its ID.R electric racing car and it’s new ID.3 at the Essen Auto Show from 30 November to 08 December. Dr. Frank Welsch, Chief Development Officer of Volkswagen Passenger Cars says that the development of the ID.R has led to reciprocal technology transfer between Volkswagen Motorsport and the production development.

VW says that their motorsport division has benefited from the production developers’ knowledge in building batteries and handling high-voltage components in the vehicle while production developers have learned from the Motorsport team and how to deal with Rapid charging Technology and how to best optimize energy recuperation. Volkswagen also says that the performance of the ID R With all the records that it is breaking at different Motorsport events has resulted in an increased popularity in the new ID 3.

The ID.R currently has the fastest electric vehicle lap record in the  Nürburgring with a time of 6:05.336 which was previously held by the NIO EP9 with a time of 6:45.90.  Romain Dumas, the man who drove the ID R in it’s record breaking lap was able to reach speeds of 169 mph and he also set a record in the ID.R for the Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb with a time of  39.90

The ID 3 comes with three battery options, a 45 kWh battery for the Pure Version, a 58 kWh battery for  Pro version and a 77 kWh battery for the Pro S version with corresponding WLTP ranges of 205 miles, 260 miles, and 340 miles. The motor has an output of 150 KW with  310 Nm of torque and a top speed of 160 km/h. Charging is either 7.2kw single  phase or 11 kW 3 phase or 125 kW dc charging with a ccs charger.

 

MG Motor to partner with Umicore to recycle it’s lithium ion batteries

MG Motor, a British Automotive company now owned by the Chinese company SAIC Has announced that it plans to partner with Belgian material technology company Umicore to recycle the lithium-ion batteries that will be used in its electric cars. They had also earlier partnered with exicom for effective re-usage of lithium batteries to be used in its electric vehicles.

MG Motor will launch the car on Dec 5th in India and plans to price it at around 25 lakh rupees ($34,840).  They currently plan sales of only 2000 to 3000 per year as there isn’t enough infrastructure for electric vehicles at the moment as the country only has around 200 charging stations but the government proposes to eventually set up around 5000 charging stations. The car features a 44.5 kWh battery with a claimed range of around 350 KM, although the NEDC rated range is around  335 km and you could probably expect a real world range of around 300 km and 0 to 60 acceleration of 8.5 seconds and a max speed of 87 mph. The motor produces a max power of 105 KW and a max torque of 260 lb ft. The estimated charge time for the 7kW charger is 6.5 hours for a full charge and for the 50kW charger is 40 minutes for 0 to 80%.

The car has three driving modes,  three regenerative braking modes,a  4 speaker system for Excite, 6 speaker system for the exclusive version, an 8 inch touchscreen, android auto, car play, heated front seats for the exclusive, 17 inch alloy wheels, side and dual airbags in the front and tyre pressure monitoring system

Audi Says E-Tron Can Now Give 25 km Of Extra Range After Hardware And Software Improvements

Audi has announced that they have made adjustments to their drive system hardware and software to give the E-tron an extra 25 Kilometres (15.5) of range.

Audi claims that they have been able to achieve this by using a new type of wheel brake to reduce the residual brake torque and also by  improving efficiency of the drive system by almost entirely disengaging the front electric motor from the electricity supply during normal driving conditions and only engage in it when the driver requires more power. The usable battery capacity has also slightly improved. Also while the previous e-tron had a usable battery capacity of 83.6 kWh, the new e-tron’s usable capacity is a little higher at 86.5 kWh.

Audi says that they have also made improvements to the thermal management and have reduced volume flows in the coolant circuit, hence allowing the pump to use less power. They have also improved the coasting recuperation system which is basically the amount of energy recuperated when the driver releases the accelerator pedal or when the brake pedal is pressed. Audi says that when braking from 100 km/h (62 mph) , the e-tron can recuperate up to 300 Nm (221.3 lb-ft)  and 220 kW. The driver can also select the degree of coasting recuperation in three stages using the steering wheel paddles. At the lowest stage, the vehicle coasts with no additional drag torque when the driver takes his foot off the accelerator pedal. At the highest stage, the electric SUV reduces the speed considerably and the driver can slow down and accelerate with just the accelerator pedal. This is what Audi means by the one pedal feeling as you don’t need to use the brake pedal to decelerate. Audi says that in its update there are more distinctions between the three stages but doesn’t go into detail as to what those distinctions are.

Audi also announced that the new exterior package for the S Line is now available and features 20 inch wheels, a sport air suspension, an  S line emblem on the radiator grille, an S emblem on the aluminum door sill trims and bigger air curtains that extend below the headlights and improve airflow. The S line also comes with a spoiler and diffuser at the rear and there is also an optional black styling package to accentuate the side windows, bumper and exterior mirror housings. 

The Audi e-tron is currently available in two models, the e-tron 50 quattro and e-tron 55 quattro but the e-tron 50 so far seems to be only available in Norway and Germany and there doesn’t seem to be any plans for the car to be launched in the US. In Norway, for the 2020 model  the e-tron 50 is priced at $54400 for the launch edition and the e-tron 55 at $69700. The e-tron 55 in the US though starts at $74,800. However, in Germany, the Audi e-tron 50 quattro starts at €69,100 ($76,089). I’m not sure why it is more expensive in Germany than in Norway but I’m guessing it has to do with higher taxation in Germany.

The e-tron 50 has a 71kWh battery and an EPA estimated range of 150 miles and WLTP range of 186 miles but now with the improvements made Audi claims the WLTP range to be 208 miles for the standard one and 215 miles for the sportback which means that the e-tron 55 which previously had a WLTP range of 259 miles should now have a WLTP range of at least 275 miles . When it comes to power and performance the e-tron 50  has  230 kW of power, 540 Nm (398.3 lb-ft) of torque, a top speed of 190 km/h (118 mph) and does 0 – 60 in 6.8 seconds. The battery system is also 120 kg lighter than the one in the e-tron 55.

The E-Tron can charge at a rate of 150KW using a DC fast charger until it reaches 80% after which the charge rate drops to around 80KW till it reaches 90% after which it drops to 50KW till it reaches 100% which means that if you were to charge with a 50KW charger you could charge  at that rate from 0 up to 100%.

Bertrand Piccard Drives 778 Km In A Hydrogen Fuel Cell Powered Hyundai Nexo Without Refueling

Bertrand Piccard, The man who piloted solar impulse on its around the world journey covering a distance of around 42,000 kilometers has now set a new world distance record for a hydrogen car by covering a distance of 778 kilometers driving through France and Luxembourg on a Hyundai Nexo without refueling. He says it is a world record but I’m not exactly sure what the details are of the record or who it is recognized by. I’m guessing it’s for the most distance traveled in a hydrogen powered passenger car with that quantity of hydrogen.

If you didn’t know the Hyundai Nexo is a hydrogen fuel cell powered car and has three fuel tanks with a total capacity of 156 liters, a 120kW electric motor and an EPA estimated range of 380 miles.

As far as hydrogen cars itself are concerned, there is a lot of talk as to whether they are better or worse than battery powered ones but countries like Japan China and South Korea have ambitious goals of having close to a million fuel cell electric vehicles in each of their countries by 2030 even though current sales are only in the thousands.

Also, China recently opened the world’s largest hydrogen fuelling station at the Shanghai chemical industry Park covering an area of 8000 sq.m with a hydrogen supply capacity of up to 2 tons per day with 35 MPa and 75 MPa hydrogen refueling. The station was built by a joint collaboration between SAIC and the Shanghai chemical industry Park.

In Japan, they plan to have around 160 hydrogen fuel stations by next year and build around 10,000 worldwide over the next 10 years. Japan’s Tokyo electric power company Holdings (TEPCO) and JXTG have also announced plans to build a large hydrogen fuel station in Tokyo with a capacity of 600 cubic meters per hour, which if my calculations are right equates to about 1.2 tons per day it which is like half of the China plant.

In South Korea, they have plans to build 3 hydrogen cities by 2022 with all of the energy requirements of these cities being met by Hydrogen. They plan for these cities to have 670 hydrogen fuel-cell electric passenger vehicles and around 30 hydrogen buses with a larger vision of having 10% of the country being powered by Hydrogen by 2030. South Korea also looks to have at least 65,000 hydrogen powered passenger cars and 300 plus charging stations by 2022.

In Europe, Germany Launched the world’s first hydrogen-powered Coradia iLint train last year which was built by Alstom with a range of 600 miles and they also plan on adding another 14 more by 2021. France has also placed an order for 15 hydrogen power trains which they expect to be in service in the next two years . France also plans to invest more than $100 million into building around 100 hydrogen stations and they also plan to have at least 5000 hydrogen powered commercial vehicles on the road by 2023.
