Just How Far Must an Electric Car Be Able To Travel Per Charge Before Range Anxiety Fades?

We’re back with our Sunday musings — and this week, following the 2,000 mile round trip to Las Vegas with the crew for CES, Nikki’s got a very simple question:

How far must an electric car be capable of traveling on a single charge before its driver no-longer suffers range anxiety?

Electric Trucks? Peterbilt Previews Mid-Range 220EV Class 6, 579EV Class 8 Trucks For City Use

Just as more and more companies are starting to show an interest in electric cars, we’re seeing more and more commercial vehicle manufacturers take an interest in electric vehicles.

So far, we’ve seen plenty of new electric buses hit the market, as well as several new options posed for electric haulage. Tesla of course, has its take in the form of the Tesla Semi — a truck which it is promising will enter production in the next year or so. Now PACCAR — the company behind both Peterbilt and Kenworth Trucks — has stepped up to the plate with its offerings.

While Kenworth is busy working on hydrogen fuel cell trucks with Toyota, Peterbilt is working on all-electric models, and we were able to give them a first-glance at CES 2019. Meet the 579EV and 220EV!

Honda’s Two-Way Power Transfer For EVs — And Autonomous Quads

Last week at CES 2019, we had our fair share of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles to look at, but over on the Honda Stand we discovered something other than the Autonomous Work Vehicle that Honda was touting as a potential off-road assistant for a number of different industries.

Enter Honda’s two-way wireless charging concept — which will be preceded by a two-way wired charging technology that Honda has been working on for its new range of promised electric cars.

We just have to wait and see if Honda delivers the goods or not.

Think GM Isn’t Serious About EVs? Think Again. It is.

Ever since the crushing of the EV1 by General Motors more than a decade ago, people have remained suspicious of General Motors and its commitment toward electric cars.

Even with its Volt range-extended electric car and more recently, its Bolt EV, some within the electric car world have remained convinced GM is making electric cars under duress — and is still trying to do everything it can to kill them.

But recent comments by GM President Mark Reuss suggest that’s as far from the truth as it’s possible to get. Instead, GM seems to really, finally, be drinking the kool aid.

2019 Nissan LEAF e-Plus: The Truth About That Battery Pack

Last week at CES 2019, Nissan unveiled its longer-range Nissan LEAF e-Plus (known in some markets as the LEAF 3.Zero). Fitted with a 62 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, this longer-range LEAF model has been the subject of a lot of speculation  — including the expectation that it would be fitted with an LG-Chem lithium-ion battery pack.

But as Nissan has now detailed, the new LEAF’s battery pack not only has no active thermal management, but is built in-house.

Here’s what it means for the LEAF — and the future for the car.

U.S. Debut of 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC: Sexy, Luxury Plug-In That Oozes Premium Style

In September last year, Mercedes-Benz debuted its Mercedes-Benz EQC electric SUV at a special event in Sweden. A few weeks later, the car made its auto show debut at the 2018 Paris International Motor Show.

Designed as a premium long-range, high-performance all-wheel drive electric car, the SUV will hit the market as a 2020 model year car, and while it’s official range and pricing is yet to be announced (there’s a European NEDC range rating but no official U.S. EPA rating), the EQC made its official U.S. debut at CES 2019.

We were there, so had to stop by and get a glimpse of this brand-new plug-in first hand.

Here’s what we learned, and what we think we can expect from Mercedes-Benz in the future. \

Super-Smart Electric Car Battery Pack, Nissan’s Augmented Reality, Tesla Kills 75 kWh Battery: CES 2019 Day 4

We’ve already been at CES now for four days, and we finally found our studio at CES!

In addition to filming a collab with Alex from E for Electric, we spent Wednesday learning about a new projected ‘hologram’ for in-car navigation and smart phone integration, got to play with a brand-new battery pack design that includes AC charger, battery management and inverter functions at the cell level (allowing the battery to dynamically reconfigure itself on the fly) and experienced Nissan’s very bizarre augmented reality vision for the future.

We also touched on two very important news stories from Tesla: the court case against Tesla from the family of a teen who died when his Tesla hit a wall at 118 mph (https://electrek.co/2019/01/09/tesla-sued-defective-battery-fire-fatal-crash/) and the axing of the 75 kWh battery pack option for the Model S and Model X — which makes the cheapest Model S and Model X almost $100,000 each (https://www.greencarreports.com/news/1120839_musk-axes-affordable-tesla-model-s-x-75d).

BMW Vision iNEXT Virtual Assistant, Audi’s e-Foil, Nissan LEAF e-Plus and Impossible Burger 2: CES 2019 Day 3

Following on from yesterday’s press day, CES 2019 Media Day 2 was chock full of press conferences from tier one parts suppliers — the companies which make the various components that give your car all the functionality it has.

A few years ago, before electric cars were given much attention by mainstream automakers, tier one parts suppliers were working hard to promote their electric car portfolios. Now we’re seeing a new trend, with pretty much every parts supplier making massive commitments to the world of autonomous vehicle, electric mobility, and always-on 5G cloud connectivity.

But what does it mean for the future of vehicles, both personal and shared?

2019 Nissan LEAF e-plus Announced at CES 2019. Here’s What You Need To Know

Originally destined to be revealed at the 2018 LA Auto Show, Nissan has finally unveiled the 2019 Nissan LEAF e-Plus at CES 2019.

From the outside, the Nissan LEAF e-Plus doesn’t look much different to its smaller-capacity sibling — but it has a 62 kWh battery pack and a larger 226 miles (364 km) range per charge.

… and sadly, it doesn’t have liquid cooling.

Which Car Would You Convert To Electric If Money Was No Object?

At the end of this year, my thoughts have moved away from plug-in cars you can buy — and onto cars that you might convert.

I’ve wanted to convert a car to electric for years, and while I’ve done plenty of work on my own cars (including making a Plug-in Prius and upgrading a lead-acid car to lithium-ion) I’ve never actually converted one to electric.

So it got me wondering: what cars would you want to either convert to electric yourself (or pay someone to covert for you?)

Here are just a few I’d love to dump the pump with.

Electric Car Tips: Staying Safe When Coal Rollers, Charging Station Blockers Attack

Over the weekend, we heard news of an incident in North Carolina where a Tesla owner found pickup trucks — and their owners — blocking access to the Tesla Supercharger she needed to use.

While this particular incident was solved safely, it’s got us thinking. While vehicles blocking charging stations in an intentionally confrontational way — as well as coal rolling (where pickup truck owners intentionally produce black smoke from their modified Diesel engines to impair visibility ahead for electric and hybrid owners) are relatively rare, we are hearing of incidents on a pretty regular basis.

Both types of attack on plug-in owners can be scary — so how can you make sure you stay safe?

Here’s What Nissan Needs To Do To Redeem Itself With Electric Car Owners

Nissan was one of the first mainstream automakers to bring a modern mass-produced electric car to market. Only Mitsubishi with its i-Miev beat it to market — and as such, Nissan has enjoyed many years of dominance in the mainstream electric car market.

But a series of poor design choices and PR problems has left Nissan in a far less than stellar position. In fact, many of its earliest electric car owners are now swearing off the brand.

Can Nissan redeem itself? Can it bring new electric cars to market that make up for its previous poor choices? And will its soon-to-launch 2019 Nissan LEAF e-Plus help it to achieve that?

Should Our Driving Tests Be Changing To Include Autonomous, Automotive Car Tech?

Our cars are getting more and more advanced. Many of those features are designed to keep us safer on the road. The keep an eye out for other traffic, ensure we keep in our lane, and sometimes even do the driving for us.

But save for a few places in the world, these new, advanced technologies are not part of the driving test.

If these technologies are meant to help us improve our safety and make driving easier — shouldn’t they be covered?

It’s generally accepted that the world is getting warmer, driven by an increase in emissions from us humans.  And as the world heats up and more pollutants hang around in the air, our weather patterns are starting to become very screwed up indeed.

We’re all aware that lowering emissions is the first step to slowing down manmade climate change — and different governments around the world are trying different solutions to try and encourage their citizens to do that.

But there’s one idea that has already proven itself popular, and can help raise GDP while simultaneously lowering emissions.

Enter carbon pricing — and what it can do for you.

And in today’s world, for the most part at least, cars powered solely by solar power have been impractical and costly to commercialize — as we detailed a few weeks ago on this channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y89RKORO6Lc)

But there’s one company which has quietly been building itself in the shadows — and the team who founded it are the same people responsible for several world-class, race winning electric cars.

Meet Lightyear, and the Lightyear One — a car which promises to recharge itself. But what will it offer — and will it make it to production?
