Description:

Can YOU help me spread the word about how awesome electric cars are? Click EVne.ws/patreon   Read today’s show notes on https://www.evnewsdaily.com   Well good morning, good afternoon and good evening, wherever you are in the world, hello and welcome to the Tuesday 11th September edition of EV News Daily. It’s Martyn Lee here with the news you need to know about electric cars and the move towards sustainable transport.   Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they’ve built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It’s a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too.   NORWAY UPDATE 2 Geirenger – so many Renault Twizy’s for tourists! Talking cars to navigate you around the mountains Another Tesla taxi!   National Drive Electric Week - This will be the 8th annual event, with a record 316 events registered across the US, Canada and New Zealand. Thanks to Electrek for reminding me! My excuse is being over here in the UK, they say: The week is organized by Plug in America, an organization which advocates the transition to electric transportation, along with Sierra Club and the Electric Auto Association.  Every event is free to attend for owners and non-owners alike, and attending is a great way to get the word out or get your questions answered about electric vehicles.   https://electrek.co/2018/09/04/see-drive-tesla-chevy-nissan-bmw-evs-national-drive-electric-week/   PORSCHE TAYCAN: EV SNAPPED WITH MINIMAL DISGUISE   CAR Magazine in the UK report: Our spy photographers have got pictures of a new Porsche – but this time it’s not the next 911, it’s the all-electric Porsche Taycan. We haven’t seen the ‘EV formerly known as Mission E’ in a while but these new pictures show it in great detail – and with less camouflage than usual. The front bumper appears to be production spec, and again looks like a mish-mash of the German brand’s saloon and supercar. That’s no surprise though, as the Taycan is designed to slot between both models in terms of size and performance. Other things to look at are a pair of ridiculous fake exhausts, and what could be production-spec wheels.   https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-news/motor-shows-events/frankfurt/2015/porsche-mission-e-the-pure-electric-sports-car-shocks-frankfurt/   THE 2018 TESLA MODEL 3 LONG RANGE IS THE PERFECT MIX   Theres a new Jalopnik review out today, as they spent a week in the Long Range RWD Model 3. Theres nothing in here that you dont know, but its interesting because this is a website that can be deliberately spikey at times, certainly cynical, and thats just their house style so I was curious to read how they might have poked the Model 3. The article reads like someone who is either new to EVs or writing a piece because they know their readers of Jalopnik are petrol heads, but its a detailed reviews and worth reading.   One of the big draws for Tesla is that it’s a company that thinks differently from the competition, and nowhere else is this more readily apparent than inside the Model 3 itself. Even the glovebox doesn’t have a physical latch. You have to use the screen to open it up, an annoying and unnecessary extra step. I didn’t know how much I would miss a glovebox latch until it was taken away from me. My other main gripe with the car was its lack of a key or key fob. I downloaded the Tesla app, connected my phone to the car via Bluetooth and could access information like where the car was parked and unlock it remotely. That was neat, but I still just wanted a damn key, or a fob like pretty much all other new cars have these days. And not everyone has a smartphone. What then?   Maybe the acceleration gets old for some after a while, but it didn’t for me. Having said that, I also cannot deny that its silence and single-gear transmission give it more of an appliance-like feel at times, like it was a dish that was missing a crucial spice that would have given it that final kick.   https://jalopnik.com/the-2018-tesla-model-3-long-range-is-the-perfect-mix-of-1828853186   FORD TRANSIT PLUG IN COMING IN 2019 Theres a new Ford Transit PHEV testing on the roads right now. They say: Ford’s innovative Transit Custom PHEV has an advanced hybrid system that targets a zero-emission range of up to 50 kilometres (31 miles), and features the multi-award winning 1.0litre EcoBoost petrol engine as a range extender. The EcoBoost engine charges the on-board batteries when longer trips are required between charging stops, providing operators with outstanding efficiency and flexibility, and a total range of more than 500 kilometres (310 miles). Displayed in final production form in Hannover, the PHEV has a...
