Beijing Converting 70,000 Taxis to Electric Vehicles


http://www.futureofeverything.io/201...tric-vehicles/


Electric vehicles (EVs) are expanding in availability and efficiency all over the world. Phasing out fossil fuelled powered transport is a long complex process. In Beijing, a city with world-beating smog problems, the 70,000 strong fleet of taxis are going electric. All newly registered or replaced vehicles within Beijing have to be electric taxis. The cost of the program will be around $1.3 billion, a drop in the ocean relatively speaking. An electric taxi costs around $20,000 in China and they’re immensely popular.

Great. For a country that is projected by the EIA to still generate over 50% of its electricity using coal by 2040...

Then again, the IEA has constantly underestimated the growth of solar power for the last decade or so. They're a little too conservative with their estimates.

Also, 50 % coal means 50 % not-coal, which is a huge leap forward from today. Either way, a coal power plant has much higher efficiency than an internal combustion engine, and it's easier to filter the emissions of one power plant than a million tailpipes...

Electric cars: China’s highly charged power play




The government reinforced its position in September when it announced a system of steadily increasing quotas that will reward carmakers for producing ever more battery-powered vehicles starting in 2019, while forcing them to buy EV “credits” from other producers for every conventional car they make.

For a country that produces more than half of its power from coal (that's likely to continue until 2040, even with the robust renewable power growth recently that will continue), it is more about self-sufficiency than it is about the environment.

Shell opens its first UK electric vehicle charging points

Royal Dutch Shell has opened its first charging points for electric vehicles at UK filling stations in a further sign of the Anglo-Dutch group’s diversification beyond fossil fuels.

Drivers will be able to recharge EVs at 10 locations, mostly in London and south-east England, by the end of the year.

Guangzhou new energy buses 7777 (including pure electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids, non-plug-in hybrids and LNG) , accounting for 54.06% of the city's total number of buses.

In order to speed up the upgrade of pure electric buses, Guangzhou Municipal Development and Reform Commission in the "Guangzhou new energy vehicle development program (2017 - 2020)" indicated that Guangzhou will reach 100% use of pure electric buses by the end of 2020.

I guess that's about to change too (the coal-only dependence) when the new supplies of russian gas finally enter in China.

Just and example: a peruvian engineer made an E-Volkswagen Beetle, using the old model (wich was still in production in Mexico as far as 2003), and the result is oustanding, i think: the old beetle is like a modern car, with a smooth, modern engine. And, there are thousands of other E-Beetles around the world, maded individually. You can only think what could be done by a large-scale recycle of Beetles.

It is certainly about both. Air pollution is so bad in major metropolitan areas that the government has enacted rules that are quite a problem for business, especially polluting one. So there are already costly environmental protection actions in place. A shift towards e-car could improve the situation and prevent the need for even more business stiffling interventions.

I think you error is to think of environmental protection as some sort of luxury when it has become a pretty existential problem for China already, one of strategic importance.

Perodua considers developing electric vehicles
By AMIR HISYAM RASID - October 25, 2017 @ 10:50am

Quote:
TOKYO: National carmaker Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sdn Bhd (Perodua) is studying the introduction of its own electric vehicles in Malaysia.

Perodua Auto Corp Sdn Bhd vice president Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad said it must first suit the affordability of the market.

"We will see the possibility of bringing over the technology to Malaysia (from Japan).

"Most importantly, we will study the impact to our market, especially in terms of affordability and cost competitiveness," he said at the Tokyo Motor Show here today.

At the motorshow, Daihatsu, Perodua's technology and technical partner, showcased its concept cars, one of which is a commercial electric vehicle.

This is in line with its strategic direction moving forward, which is to produce high quality vehicles at affordable prices for Japanese market.

BMW Partners With GreenTech Malaysia For Charging Services
http://autoworld.com.my/news/2016/10...ging-services/



BMW Group Malaysia and Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (GreenTech) officially marked their partnership at the 7th International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM), to offer the ChargeNow mobility service via GreenTech’s ChargEV platform.

This initiative is part of the BMW 360° ELECTRIC program and allows owners of BMW plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles like the i8, 330e and X5 xDrive40e on-the-go charging. With the BMW ChargeNow card, owners of these vehicles get access to the ChargEV partner charging stations 24/7. GreenTech currently has about 95 ChargEV charging stations in major urban centers and targets to install another 300 ChargEV stations by this year-end to meet its ultimate target of 25,000 charging stations by 2020. This is to support the expected growth of EV and hybrid vehicle ownership to about 100,000 vehicles in the next 5 years.

China Reveals NEV Quotas For Auto Manufacturers — 10% Of Annual Sales By 2019, 12% By 2020, But Nothing By 2018

https://evobsession.com/china-reveal...-nothing-2018/


China has now released the new NEV targets, and they do indeed lack the earlier 8% quota for 2018, but leave the quotas for 2019 and 2020 in place.

Even with the 2018 requirements gone, though, the new auto manufacturer quotas are still pretty impressive — those operating in the country will be required to amass NEV credits equivalent to roughly 10% of annual sales in 2019, and equivalent to 12% in 2020.

In other words, foreign firms that want to sell in the world’s largest auto market will be heavily compelled to sell a lot of plug-in electric vehicles or hybrids, or at the least to purchase credits from those that do.
