Riversimple, Tesla, Manz, ETT Industries.

Testing Rasa: Riversimple will start beta-testing its compact fuel cell car later this year with members of the public driving it for 12 months. Investors are asked to support the initiative, especially as the British firm gears up for production of 3,500 units by 2018. The FCVs would be offered via leasing in areas with enough H2 infrastructure in place.

Next-gen Autopilot: Tesla intensifies developments of its self-driving technology. CEO Elon Musk just visited Israeli partner Mobileye to test the latest features himself. Meanwhile, back in California, the EV maker poached a whole team of chip architects from AMD.

3D laser triangulation: German Manz uses its metrology expertise for its laser welding equipment that detects exact welding points for EV battery cells using 3D laser triangulation. Precision is finer than 20 micrometers at 500 welds a minute, the company says.

3D e-bikes: ETT Industries presents two light electric vehicles, both sporting unusual laser-cut monocoque aluminium frames. The Raker is an electric scooter, whose 2000W motor can take it up to 45 kph. The Trayser is a pedelec with a motor that pedal-assists at up to 25 kph. Pre-orders can be placed and will be fulfilled as “Signature” edition. Some spare parts can be 3D-printed at home.

NASA, model car, Manz, Tesla.

Electric passenger plane: NASA is looking to launch an electric aircraft called Sceptor (Scalable Convergent Electric Propulsion Technology and Operations Research) by 2019. The concept is said to be able to hold up to nine passengers. They would be carried by a 500 kW electric motor integrated into an experimental wing.

Out of the woods comes this model car developed by Swedish Innventia, Swerea and KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Its roof is made from carbon-fibre sourced from softwood lignin. The same light-weight material was used for the electrode of the Li-ion battery. Lignin could become available by 2024.

German SME to help build batteries: Manz says it received a multi-million euro order to build machines for making large Li-ion batteries. The machines will be mainly delivered to Europe, Asia, and the U.S., and Manz relates the growth to electric transport.

Metal that matches Model 3: Prices of rare materials essential for EV batteries, such as nickel, cobalt, aluminium and cooper, continue to drop. Good news for Tesla, as it brings the EV maker closer to its goal of offering its upcoming economy EV, the Model 3, at a lower price than the rest of the line-up.

Edison Eletron One, Manz, Fraunhofer IWES, Bosch.

Super capabilities: Sunvault and Edison Power Company announce the all-electric ‘Edison Electron One,’ featuring a graphene energy storage system that can allegedly be charged in five minutes. A fuel cell will serve as range extender and is said to perform electrolysis itself, meaning one only needs to fill the tank with water. The vehicle can be ordered from early 2016.

Manz gets new battery production deal: The Manz AG announced a 12m dollar deal to build lithium-ion batteries for a client in the United States. There is also a possibility to include further deals in the U.S. and China. The client’s name was not announced.

Wireless and highly efficient: The Fraunhofer IWES will present an inductive charging system with bidirectional charging capabilities at the IAA later this month. Even if car and charging coil are up to 20 cm apart, efficiency is said to be between 93 and 95 percent across the entire power range, from 400 W to 3.6 kW.

Bosch in Frankfurt: The German supplier will show the second generation of its 48V system at the IAA, which allows the electric motor to provide power to wheels independently for a short distance. Bosch will also show a new battery system and thermal management, said to increase the range of electric cars.

Manz, GF Automotive, Airport Personal Transport, BNL.

Manz lassos new deal: The German engineering company has received a “strategically important” order from one of the “leading companies of the e-mobility industry in the USA” (Tesla?) for a pilot system in which an innovative laser welding process will be used for the manufacture of lithium-ion battery systems. Manz is confident that there will be follow-up orders in the coming years.

New player on the market: The automotive division of Swiss company Georg Fischer wants to begin selling components for electric vehicles. According to GF, it already received orders totalling 50 million euros from well-known manufacturers covering light metal battery housings and structural parts.

Never late for the gate: The APT (Airport Personal Transport) is essentially an electric-powered, semi-autonomous two-passenger vehicle that will take people from their car to the airport gate and back. The team, with 88-year-old team leader William Alden has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise 100,000 dollars to build the first prototype.
