Tesla Autopilot, EV sales in Georgia, Events.

Video tip: A Tesla driver posted a video of the new Autopilot truly saving the day as a car pulls out very unexpectedly, while he was busy driving – sorry, filming.
youtube.com via geekwire.com

Reading tip: Incentives work, or at least it is clearly demotivating if they seize to exist as this example from Georgia illustrates. Once the state scrapped the 5,000-dollar subsidy in July, EV sales shrunk substantially from 1,338 in June to 776 in July until in August only 148 EVs were sold.

BMW i & Telekom, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Events.

Video tip I: The humanoids of the future are animals with routines this spot by BMW i and Telekom suggests as it shows a morning in a smart, i.e. app-controlled home. Have you put the buns in the oven for tomorrow, honey, and most importantly, is the car plugged?!
youtube.com

Video tip II: Tom Voelk spent a weekend with the Toyota Highlander Hybrid and made a home video with special appearances by his son and his Frisbee-crazy friends. If only that “family-favourite” could be a little cheaper…

Video tip I: How cool the new Supercharging with a liquid-cooled cable truly is can now be viewed in this video with a thermal imaging camera. The Supercharger can be found at Mountain view (we reported).
teslarati.com

Video tip II: A road trip from Amersham in Buckinghamshire, UK, to Amsterdam, Netherlands in a BMW i3 turned out to be not too easy. Not only were the drivers let down by charging infrastructure but als by the car itself. Maybe the range extender kept them from preparing properly?

Video tip I: Check out this aerial footage made with a drone circling above the Gigafactory construction site in the Nevada desert. This time, the shots show the whole area while Elon Musk claimed that previous footage only showed the pilot factory, which is much smaller.
teslarati.com

Video tip II & III: Noah Magel is yet another Tesla fan that heard the calling and made his own spot marketing the Model S in a rather magical way. The other spot comes from Norway and is also mystical as it utilises a drone for filming the Tesla cruising along the Norwegian coastline.

Tesla Model 3, BMW i3, Events.

Click tip I: Designer James Stumpf of Stumpf Studio draws his take on the Tesla Model 3 and accompanies his vision of the economy Tesla with the right ad. It may be conservative, but it is pretty utilitarian, too.
insideevs.com

Click tip II: Scott Lawrence Lawson‎, maker of the i3 Owners Map, delivers a heat map of i3 ownership in the U.S. Unsurprisingly, the Bavarian EV is hottest in urban areas on the West Coast with a few hubs along the East Coast as well.

BMW i8, EVS28, SAE World Congress, Events.

Video tip: This is the first time that Robert Llewellyn’s Fully Charged features a plug-in hybrid supercar – the BMW i8. To poke fun at those who say charging is complicated, Robert fills it up with a “highly inflammable and toxic liquid.” And he cannot understand “how you people deal with it.”

Fully Charged, Tesla, Events.

Video tip: Fully Charged went on a rather epic trip, driving a Tesla Model S P85 from Oslo (arrived there via ferry) to London. 1,300 miles that are but, as Robert Llewellyn puts it, “there are plenty of Superchargers on the way” and the Tesla proved well prepared for the cold.
youtube.com via electriccarsreport.com

Reading tip: Today, Tesla will officially introduce its stationery batteries but in reality, the Californian company has been working on its grid batteries since 2010 and already has numerous systems in place for testing purposes. Obviously, SolarCity has been part of the mix from the start.

Hiriko EV, BMW i3, Events.

Reading tip I: Spanish El País uncovers the truth behind the failure of the foldable EV Hiriko. Funded by both the Spanish and Basque government and praised by the EU, mismanagement and yet to be proven fraud ultimately led to the death of a project and the loss of 17 million euros of tax payers money.
elpais.com

Reading tip II: 18 months after its introduction in the States, the BMW i3 is selling well but not where it was expected to. Instead of urbanites like New Yorkers, sales figures reveal a buyers base outside the big cities. Why? Because no park, no charge!

Rare earth metals, BMW i3, Events.

Reading tip: It took researchers from Yale University five years to assess the “criticality” of all 62 metals on the Periodic Table of Elements. Rare earth metals could face supply shortages soon and thus require recycling urgently, the experts recommend.
news.yale.edu

Read & watch: Hannah Elliot test drove the BMW i3 in Manhattan and was not too pleased with the experience. Not only is she not a fan of deceleration but also grew weary of the seats. The “quirky” looks of the BMW i3 did not help either, no matter how efficient the EV might be.

Temperature vs. range, EV adoption in South Africa, Events.

Research tip: Cold climate does not favour EVs, that much we knew, but researchers from Carnegie Mellon University now put data behind the assumption. They analysed 7,000 trips taken in a Nissan Leaf in different states of North America and could thus pin down regional differences.
greencarcongress.com, pubs.acs.org

Reading tip: The biggest obstacle to EV adoption in South Africa might not be hesitant consumers but the country’s often brittle grid. Furthermore, electricity is expensive and infrastructure scarce at best.

Video tip: This on-board video from the Trophée Andros Electrique definitely takes you on an exciting ride as the race is through ice and snow. Expects a few bumps (into opponents) along the frosty road!
youtube.com via electricautosport.com

Reading tip I: It took Chris Davies some time to get used to the Toyota iRoad’s “tilting sensation” but he soon got the hang of it and happily cruised along while also finding some time to talk to Makoto Morita, leader of the iRoad project.
slashgear.com (with video)

Reading tip II: HOV lanes in California are becoming less and less of a privilege as they are increasingly crowded. Plans to ease the traffic go from expansion to allowing only vehicles with more than one or two passengers to use them.

Video tip I: In a new video, Lit Motors demonstrates the self-balancing capabilities of its C1 EV which is essentially a scooter with a semi-closed cabin. While no date for production is set yet, the Californian start-up now issued a price of approximately 24,000 dollars.
youtube.com, litmotors.com

Video tip II: DragTimes ventured to find out, just how much better the Tesla Model S P85D is compared to the Model S P85. The drag race between the two Teslas is nothing less than surprisingly definite.
youtube.com

Reading tip: Neil Winton is looking at German EV policies, or better, the lack of them. While one million electric vehicles until 2020 are the goal, subsidies are as of yet out of the question. A solution has been brought into the discussion by Prof. Ferdinand Dudenhoeffer who believes a 1-cent per litre tax could bring 2.4 billion euros to be spent on EVs and infrastructure.

Reading tip: Tesla’s launch of the Model S P85D has created quite a stir in Norway. More than 150 “old” Model S are being offered for sale by their owners, while before there were only 20. Well, the all-wheel drive kind of makes sense in wintry Norway.
