Hello to “eMobility Update”! We have the following news and an overview of e-mobility in our program for you today: Multi-energy station in Bavaria ++ SVOLT could go to Lausitz ++ Kia EV9 coming early 2023 ++ Consortium for fast-charging robots ++ And every fourth Tesla from He has gone to Germany.
#1 – Hydrogen and fast electrics for trucks
With the opening of the Paul Group site in Passau, the construction of one of the largest public hydrogen filling stations in Bavaria has now begun. it started. A fast charging park with ten HPC charging stations is also planned there. In addition, Paul Group, a petrol station operator and Shell are forming a consortium called Next Mobility.
#2 – SVOLT wants a Vestas factory in Lusatia
Chinese battery manufacturer SVOLT apparently wants to stay in Lusatia with a factory in Lauchhammer, Brandenburg. to take a chance, where Vestas produced blades for wind turbines until recently. As the “Lausitzer Rundschau” and the RBB report unanimously, SVOLT invited to a press conference in Lauchhammer on September 9. In this context, the plans can be officially presented.
#3 – The Kia EV9 will debut in the first quarter of 2023
Kia has released the first insight into the final EV9 test plan and announced its world premiere for the first quarter of 2023 up. Test runs with camouflaged models are currently taking place in South Korea. The large electric SUV, which Kia announced as a concept in November 2021, is the brand’s second battery-electric production model based on the new 800-volt platform.
#4 – Will robots supercharge HPC soon?
In the future, we will no longer need to get out of the car to quickly charge electric vehicles to connect the plug to the car? At least that is the aim of the research project”ROCIN ECO“. The goal is to develop and demonstrate a robotic fast charging solution. Car manufacturers Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche and Ford are involved in the alliance. But with other companies, fast charging cable specialist Huber+Suhner and TÜV Süd. The goal is to create the world’s first manufacturer-independent, fully automated, user-friendly and efficient fast charging solution.
#5 – Abuse of electric vehicle development
The popular practice of selling subsidized electric cars abroad for a profit after six months is now backed by statistics for the first time. Berlin-based analyst Matthias Schmidt estimates that more than 100,000 vehicles have been affected. As is known, reselling in Denmark is very profitable. Because there is a high luxury tax on new cars there, used Teslas are very popular in the neighboring country to the north. Based on the assessed registration data almost every fourth Tesla, which was first approved in Germany, left the market again. The problem also affects electric cars from other manufacturers, such as Porsche. So experts have been demanding for some time that the holding period should be increased if you want the environmental bonus. This is what the federal government has announced, but has not yet implemented. And many other subsidized electric cars in Germany will probably drive elsewhere soon.
