Yle News according to Juha Sipilä from the government to consider procurement to support the deployment to accelerate low-emission cars become more common.the Disdain from various sources, acquisition of data, according to the government's thinking 100 million pot of electric and biogas cars to acquire for the years 2017-2020.the Government aimed at support to the fact that in Finland you would have 250 000 electric cars and 50 000 biogas cars by 2030.the Debate is part of the new energy and climate strategy, which will be released next week on Thursday.One of the presented options is to support 4 000 eur per car 25 000 for the first car.That would mean a total of 100 million.
Kesko believe Volkswagen has not diminished the slightest, though – depends on how you count – the world's largest or second largest auto giant Volkswagen AG is the world, as well as the USA and EU in the tooth for over a year the emissions scam.Volkswagen will have to pay for example the USA nearly 14 billion a variety of compensation and fines scam as a result.And it is worth noting that the actual car to the shop itself, sadly it has been only a minor effect.Car giant has done commercial still very well."Helanderin according to the positive is the fact that Volkswagen is moving now, the most direct possible path towards electric vehicles in the world."This problem actually sped up volkswagen's new strategy of birth", also said the Kesko owned by VV-Auto group's managing director Pekka Lahti.
the car unions fear the government's new climate and energy strategy, to raise their own car use costs and the movement of the price in the first place.automobile association welcomes the government a new energy and climate strategy aims to reduce particular emissions from road traffic.at the Same time, however, it is afraid of reform to raise their own car use price.the strategy, the goal is to get to transport at least 250 000 electric cars and 50 000 gas cars by 2030"When taking into account the climate impact, undertaken by the government of fuel and vehicle tax increases, planned toll and now used energy price level, so the horizon is all movement, and in particular private car use cost increases", the automobile association to write a newsletter.It is concerned about how this will affect the household activity-and corporate activity, as well as through Finnish livelihood and standard of living.
Israeli startup Electroad has launched an experiment, where the road mounted electromagnetic induction coils to charge electric cars the car is in motion.the basic principle of the system is the same as, say, the smartphone wireless charging and electric toothbrushes, writes the Inhabitat.Electroadin model has already been tried successfully.Now it is becoming even wider test bus route in Tel Aviv.If such technologies become more common, electric cars will no longer need to download separately.Electroad promise more cost-effective, more efficient and cleaner ways to move.
Battery technology has evolved to the point where drivers no longer need to recharge their vehicles after short journeys.What's more, the government will give buyers up to £4,500 towards a new electric vehicle.The only differences drivers will notice are the “voltaic clicks and hums” when the vehicle starts up.Deliveries are expected to take place early next year for those who pre-ordered the car shortly after it was revealed last May.This gets buyers a 220-mile-per-charge battery pack and a 0-60mph time of 5.6secs, says Top Gear.Underneath the sleek skin of the I-Pace sit two electric motors perched on the front and rear axles.

Bilbyggaren Nevs be in the second half of the year, employing more than 200 people in Trollhättan. - We will need a car builder and coach, says Mikael Östlund, head of communications at Nevs. He states that production mainly is to produce painted bodies for electric version of the 9-3 model, which will then be shipped to China for final assembly. Already have Nevs about 600 employees in Trollhättan. At the end of the year will therefore be a matter of some 1 000 people, said Ostlund. Nevs National Electric Vehicle Sweden bought the bulk of Saab Automobile's bankruptcy in 2012 and will supply electric cars to China.

This year s Queen s Speech was arguably it s most technology focused with a commercial spaceport, driverless cars and faster broadband were all being given special prominance.To help make sense of it all we re going to run through each mention and explain what it means and whether the government is actually going to follow through with its plans.The government is indeed looking to build a spaceport in the UK by 2020 with eight locations under consideration with Newquay, Cornwall looking to be the strongest.Alongside providing thousands of new jobs in the area the commercial spaceport would become a central European hub for the testing of experimental new spacecraft including Reaction Engines Skylon and Virgin Galactic s own space planes.Faster BroadbandRui Vieira/PA WireThat s right, if you re still struggling to get broadband in your home then the Queen s Speech contained some good news.While The US and Sweden have predominantly been leaders in this area the government is already working on a futureproofed bill that will turn the UK s roads into a giant testing ground for the next-generation of automated cars.

The share of the mentioned environmental best cars expected to decline in new car sales, with the exception of a very modest increase of electric cars and plug-in hybrids. Number-wise increase diesel cars sharply, while the environmentally best cars will remain at about the same level until 2030 - contrary to Parliament's goal of a fossil-fuel independent vehicle fleet in 2030 It is therefore no wonder that the investigator concluded that his proposal will lead to emissions in 2021 will decrease by a negligible percent. The starting point must be a vehicle fleet that is almost entirely fossil in 2030. A system that benefits the climate best cars must give clear signals to consumers and companies in the industry that the vehicles today can run fossil-free given a bonus, it includes both plug-in hybrids and gas cars.
Since the electricity supply and demand must be balanced, the network is supplied more electricity from water power plants, neighboring countries and, ultimately, siirtokaapeleista coal power stations. His replacement has come and is coming wind and solar power to generate electricity unevenly, that is, when the weather permits. In practice, it means that the home does not light a lamp or heater turn on. If necessary, batteries, an instruction to store electricity or to feed it to the network. In order to know where the cars are and when they are charging, it is, of course, requires a lot of time to transfer data.

Since the start of Tesla Model S electric-car production in 2012, the company s lithium-ion cells have been supplied by its Japanese partner Panasonic.That applies to the more recent Tesla Model X crossover SUV as well—and Panasonic was also an early investor in Tesla Motors shares, owning a small percentage of the Silicon Valley company.For the upcoming $35,000 Model 3 sedan, Tesla is building its massive gigafactory outside Reno, Nevada, to lower the cost of that car s cells through a single integration production site.Panasonic is a partner in that project, although its financial commitments have been cautious and conservative.Now, according to an article yesterday in The Korea Times, Tesla is talking with three other possible cell suppliers for the Model 3: LG Chem, Samsung, and SK Innovation.According to the newspaper s report, LG Chem is expected to win the Tesla business thanks to its output commitment, good pricing and on-time delivery.LG Chem is one of the world s three largest suppliers of lithium-ion cells for electric vehicles, with contracts to supply more than a dozen different vehicles—including both the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid and the Chevy Bolt EV that will go into production by the end of this year.Panasonic is another of the three, with Tesla as its primary customer.The third large cell supplier is Automotive Electric Supply Corporation AESC , the joint venture between Nissan and Japanese computer giant NEC.That venture supplies cells for the current Nissan Leaf, the world s best-selling electric car.Earlier this month, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the company had moved up its target date for producing 500,000 electric cars a year.Formerly planned for 2020, he now says that will be the rate for 2018—an escalation in production rates that some industry insiders say simply cannot be met.The Model 3 is scheduled to go into production before the end of 2017, another extremely aggressive target, using cells from the Nevada gigafactory.At the moment, that plant is assembling battery packs using cells assembled elsewhere, but Tesla says it will begin fabrication of the cells themselves by the end of this year.Still, if Musk s remarkable volume target is to be met, it appears that Model 3s may require more than one cell supplier.Hence the discussions with the three Korean companies.If the newspaper s report is accurate, and even some Tesla Model 3s are built using cells made by LG Chem, that would likely catapult the Korean company to the leader among global battery suppliers.The Model 3 is expected to use 4.9-Amp-hour cylindrical cells from Panasonic in the 26650 format, somewhat larger than the 3.4-Ah 18650 cells used in the Model S and Model X.To ramp up to the required battery-pack volumes for Musk s Model 3 targets, LG Chem, Samsung, or SK Innovation would have to offer cells in that format that offer the same energy and power characteristics as the Panasonic cells—which Tesla likely helped to design.Whether those cells would be shipped to its pack-assembly line from elsewhere, or fabricated in the gigafactory, remains unknown.But with such aggressive goals for Model 3 volumes, it appears that Tesla wants to ensure that the capacity of the world s lithium-ion cell suppliers won t constrain production of the car for which Tesla says it has taken almost 400,000 deposits.In fact, the ability of battery suppliers to provide enough cells to meet growing demand for battery-electric cars promises to be a fascinating story over the next two or three years.hat tip: Joseph Dubeau This post first appeared on Green Car Reports.
Tesla Motors Inc. has set an unrealistic goal for itself and will probably miss 2018 production forecasts by a whopping 66 percent, according to a report Wednesday by Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Should that dissuade you from buying the stock?"This is the sort of wild disconnect that Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk has wrought.By moving up his already-ambitious goal of building 500,000 electric cars in 2020 by a full two years, he's left Wall Street models in disarray.Tesla announced Wednesday that it's selling another $1.4 billion in stock to help fund the company's expansion.Joseph Spak, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets, said the capital round was about $100 million less than his forecast, though it comes more than a year sooner than expected.Goldman Sachs joined RBC and Robert Baird in brushing aside the new 2018 goal while simultaneously adjusting their expectations for 2020 to a range that's more consistent with Musk's original target—one that until recently had mostly been considered fantasy.
The souped-up hybrid Ford Fusion will be collecting mapping data and testing its self-driving capabilities, all with a trained driver behind the wheel to monitor the car s performance.Steel City residents likely won t have any trouble recognizing the car — it s marked with the Uber logo and is outfitted with high-tech gadgets including radar sensors, laser scanners and cameras.While Uber says it s still in the early days of testing, it appears to be the first ride-hailing company to get an autonomous car on the road.Earlier this month Lyft announced a plan to have self-driving electric cars on public roads within a year, via a partnership with General Motors.And Apple s recent $1 billion investment in Chinese ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing has led to speculation about how the deal could advance Apple s secretive Project Titan self-driving car project.1.3 million people die every year in car accidents — 94% of those accidents involve human error, the company wrote in its blog post.In the future we believe this technology will mean less congestion, more affordable and accessible transportation, and far fewer lives lost in car accidents.The company says it chose Pittsburgh because of the city s strong engineering talent and research facilities — and it s an ideal environment to test the self-driving car on a variety of road types, traffic patters and weather conditions.Photo: Uber s self-driving car is hitting the road in Pittsburgh.
On Friday, Chinese digital giant LeEco introduced a 2.0 version of its electric vehicle time-sharing business LeShare.It s a platform that runs in line with LeEco s Super Electric Ecosystem SEE plan, which was introduced by LeEco CEO Jia Yueting at the end of 2014 to build an ecosystem of electric, smart, connected, and socialized cars .If every 10 people share one car, Beijing s six million cars could be reduced to two million, and that means much less traffic pressure and a much better urban environment for everyone, said LeShare chairman He Yi.And with the concept of the sharing economy at its core, LeShare will satisfy anyone s travelling needs at anytime anywhere, in an environmentally friendly way.Registration requires uploading a driving license, and takes merely 30 seconds.Once approved, users can hire an electric car from the nearest LeShare station and, at the end of the service, pay through Alipay or Wechat Pay.When a web connection fails, a text message will send users the password which, upon being entered into the lock pad available on each car, also works as a key.And by 2020, LeShare aims to paint its global picture with over a million pure-electric cars, according to He.LeEco has been aggressively exploring the EV sector globally.
The documents released by the Center for International Environmental Law CIEL revealed that many oil companies, including the precursors to ExxonMobil, had filed patents for technologies that would explore alternate fuel sources and electric cars as early as the 1960s.A committee was formed to face the challenges, including fueling research into the effects of fossil fuels in carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere, and lasted for two decades.Throughout the 1960s and into the 1970s, scientists from companies such as Esso, along with Shell, the Phillips Petroleum Company and Chevron worked to explore technologies that could help curb this threat.This not only included looking into ways to minimize air pollutants with vehicles, but also looking into new Arctic drilling technologies and manipulating the weather.According to CIEL, however, the API issued a response to the Robinson Report in 1969 that was more skeptical on the findings.In 1967, the organization told Congress, according to the Guardian: We take exception to the basic assumption that clean air can be achieved only by finding an alternative to the internal combustion engine.

Tesla banked almost $1.5 billion last week, selling new shares — to fund the launch of its now hotly anticipated Model 3 — at a healthy $215 per share.The ease with which it raised the funds and the fact that its shares rose 5% the week of the sale , shows how easily Tesla is able to use Wall Street to do its bidding.Plenty of people I've spoken with in the auto industry are astounded that a profitless company, one that struggled to build 50,000 cars in 2015, can tap the equity markets so easily.Unlike Tesla, traditional automakers have seen their shares flatline for the better part of a decade and have to turn to debt markets for cash.Worse yet, CEO Elon Musk does it even after making the jaw-dropping promise that Tesla will ramp up production to 500,000 vehicles in just over two years.Sure, it had telegraphed this capital raise earlier in the year, and it makes sense that, with shares again trading above $200, Tesla would tap this funding source.The car maker did a capital raise last year, to the tune of over $700 million, when shares were trading above $240.It's all kind of predictable: Tesla will lack market-moving news, or face up to its own substantial challenges, and the stock will tank below $200, sometimes falling below $150 remember, this is a company that went public in 2010 at $17 per share .Then something like the massive Model 3 pre-orders will hit, and the stock will lurch higher, prompting Musk and his team to access the easiest money they can: the well of risk-loving capital represented by Tesla's market cap.An outsider might study this pattern and conclude that it's unsustainable.If you can handle the volatility, Tesla promises some quick, big gains — and proposes to be worth much, much more as an investment when hundreds of thousands of electric cars wearing its badge take to the streets.Tesla stands aloneIf you look around, the only other companies working the investment market in this manner are Silicon Valley "unicorns," the $1-billion-and-up valuation startups like Uber whose worth is tied up in the highly illiquid private markets.That leaves a limited number of places for growth- and risk-hungry investors to put their money.Obviously, if Tesla fails to execute on any of its increasingly daunting milestones — from the Model 3 to its massive battery factory in Nevada — then that risk could bite back, hard.Investors will be in for a terrifying fall.Then see how easy it is for Tesla to top up the cash reserves.NOW WATCH: 7 inventors who were killed by their own inventionsLoading video...
Agreement on Panasonic's involvement in Gigafactory was signed July 31, 2014. Photographer: Panasonic To Tesla will meet the high demand for the Model 3, Panasonic is ready to bring forward investments in the common battery factory Gigafactory. According to a previous agreement between the companies to the Panasonic stand for $ 1.6 billion of the total investment of 5 billion in Gigafactory, the large plant in Nevada that will provide Tesla's electric cars with batteries. Now, says Panasonic's responsible for automotive and industrial systems, Yoshio Ito, told Reuters that they will do their best to change the schedule if the question comes. Greater production capacity at Gigafactory considered necessary to cope with the huge demand for the Model 3 and the target to reach an annual capacity of half a million cars in 2018, which is two years earlier than previous estimates. Yoshio Ito would not comment on the Panasonic believes that this goal is possible, but says to Reuters that the company does not want to be a bottleneck in Tesla's ambitions to increase the rate of production of electric cars. The company is also ready to buy up companies specializing in technology solutions for infotainment systems and automatic driving, areas where Panasonic has not himself systems.
