Faraday Future, Tesla, Chevy, Toyota, Vmoto.

Faraday-Future-FFZERO1-620Faraday Future premiers concept car: FF took the wraps off its electric sportscar FFZERO1 ahead of the CES in Las Vegas. The car only has space for the driver and boasts 1,000 hp. It is basically an all-electric Batmobil, which will never make it to serial production in its current form. A peak under the hood is still worthwhile. The so-called Virable Platform Architecture (VPA) is said to allow FF to quickly build a number of different EVs. According to German newspaper Die Welt, the start-up will make shore in Europe as well, founding the FF Europe GmbH in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Toyota still shuns plug: Chinese joint venture FAW Toyota announced that more than half of its 17 vehicles planned for the coming five years will be offered as a hybrid variant. However, none as a plug-in. Hybrids are said to account for 30 percent of FAW Toyota’s sales by 2020.

Vmoto eyes China: Australian electric scooter manufacturer Vmoto is partnering with PowerEagle in China.

The joint venture also guarantees Vmoto a distribution network with more than 200 locations.

No rebates for the rich: From March, California will see social rebates. Those earning more than 500,000 dollars (250,000 for singles) will be excluded from the subsidy for EVs and PHEVs. Households making less than 60,270 dollars per year will get 1,500 USD more from the state.

All-electric Audi A3? Apparently, the German carmaker is pondering the idea of an all-electric Audi A3, Manager Magazine reports. It could use a revamped drivetrain from VW’s e-Golf and hit the market by spring 2016. We’d be up for it!

U-turn at BMW: Despite a press release by BMW USA stating otherwise (we reported), the German carmaker will not present a hydrogen concept at the NAIAS in Detroit. The concept was initially expected to showcase technology more advanced and capable than what’s found in the Toyota Mirai.

New EV for China: Beijing Auto has launched its all-electric sedan Senova ES210 EV in eleven cities in mainland China. After all subsidies that amount to 90,000 yuan (14,500 USD), the 80-kW EV costs 256.900 yuan (41.485 dollars) and offers a range of up to 175 km (108 miles).

Lowering expectations: Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas is reducing its sales forecast for Tesla due to low oil prices. He now predicts that the EV maker will sell less than 300,000 units until 2020, instead of half a million. Furthermore, Jonas believes the Model 3 could cost near 60,000 dollars, while Tesla is aiming at a price of 35,000 dollars.
