Electric Vehicle Industry Updates

  • According to a CarInsurance.com survey, the Chevy Spark EV was voted the ugliest car of 2014. The online survey of 2,000 drivers voted on 10 vehicles that were new or redesigned for 2014 - funny is that the Chevy Spark EV wasn't new OR redesigned in 2014!? #
  • After announcing their future BMW & Toyota joint Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle will be unveiled at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, BMW has now told BMWBlog that the fuel cell vehicle won't be shown in Detroit. The automaker declined to comment any further, but it's likely the FCV will debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. #
  • At the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, BMW debuted the BMW 530Le plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Built specifically for the Chinese market, it is based on a long wheelbase BMW 5 series and uses the same powertrain as the X5 eDrive. Fuel consumption is rated at 2.1 liters per 100 km, and will have an all-electric range of 58 km/h. #
  • Tesla Model S P85D debuted with an estimated 275 miles of range, which was revised to 285 miles a few weeks later. Now the EPA has released official numbers, and the EPA rates the P85D range at 242 miles with the 21" wheels, and 250 miles with the 19" wheels. #
  • BMW reports selling more than 12,000 i3 electric vehicles since November 2013. "One year after its launch, the BMW i3 is already the third best-selling all-electric automobile on the market." #
  • Jaguar has filed trademark applications for the 'EV-type' moniker. In addition to their current F-Style and other models, the EV-type is clearly an electric vehicle indicator. However, any other talk of Jaguar's future electric vehicle plans is purely speculation at this point, but they do seem to be preparing for it! #
  • Saleen has started delivering their Tesla FourSixteen to customers - their modified Tesla Model S has increased aerodynamics, increased cooling performance, and increased acceleration. Saleen also announced their 2015 model lineup that will include modifications to the P85D Model S chassis and is expected to bring the 0-60MPH time down to under 3 seconds! #
  • It's now confirmed - in an email to Tesla Model X reservation holders, Tesla outlined the drivetrain setup, and it will be identical to the Model S 85D. 376 hp motor power 188 hp front and rear 8 year, infinite mile battery and drive unit warranty Supercharging included Obviously the Model X will be heavier, so I wouldn't expect quite the same performance or range. #
