  1. Digital Tech Keeps VW Designers Busy at Home
    VW Group Design chief Klaus Bischoff holds an online demonstration that digs into some of the realities of creating the way a car looks without being able to meet face-to-face.
  2. E-Mobilität ist bei der Jugend gesetzt
    Verkehrsforscher des DLR wollten wissen, welche Erwartungen Kinder an die Mobilität der Zukunft haben. 100 Schüler, Eltern und Lehrkräfte wurden dazu befragt – unter anderem wie Fahrzeuge der Zukunft aussehen und welche Erwartungen, Wünsche und Ängste die Befragten haben.
  3. Millions Of Huawei Users Will Now Get This Radical New Android Alternative
    At around the time of the Mate 30 launch last fall, Huawei also started talking up its new connected car platform—HiCar. And while this may have come across as an Android Auto (or Apple CarPlay) lookalike, compensating for the company’s loss of Google, that isn’t the plan. This is much more radical, a fundamentally different approach to the one taken by Google and Apple. Pitched at automakers as well as the drivers of their cars, this is API-level integration to car functions, linkages to cameras, fatigue and safety checks, even cloud-based services. All that atop the usual infotainment and navigation options.

    Now the rubber is about to hit the road on HiCar, quite literally, as Huawei looks to shepherd the tech onto countless cars from dozens of manufacturers. This is the year that HiCar becomes a reality and we will find out whether it is a viable option in itself, and how it battles Google (and Apple) apps in the auto space. If Huawei gets the strategy right, it will help fill some of the international smartphone-shaped gap in its revenues, while millions of its users will stand to benefit.

  4. Neuer Tesla-Akku soll weniger als 100 Dollar/kWh kosten – electrive.net
    Der angekündigte Tesla-Akku für eine Million Meilen soll einem Medienbericht zufolge spätestens Anfang 2021 kommen und zu Kosten von unter 100 US-Dollar pro kWh realisiert werden. Für die Produktion peilt Tesla offenbar einen noch größeren Maßstab als bei den Gigafactories an.
  5. General Motors: Der Million-Miles-Akku für Elektroautos ist fast fertig
    Vor wenigen Tagen hatte die Nachrichtenagentur Reuters unter Berufung auf Firmensider berichtet, dass Tesla den sogenannten Million-Miles-Akku schon ab Ende dieses Jahres in sein Model 3 einbauen könnte. Das würde die Herstellungskosten enorm drücken. Jetzt hat auch Autobauer General Motors (GM) angekündigt, schon bald einen solchen Akku präsentieren zu können, wie Reuters schreibt.
  6. Tesla And Owners Go Reckless Again With New Automated Driving Feature
    Let me be absolutely clear. Any manufacturer of any product that pushes out a safety critical feature that is not fully developed, tested and validated is guilty of negligence. This applies to Boeing BA and the maneuvering control augmentation system on the 737 Max and to Tesla with its roll-out of features for its automated driving system. The latest of these is the supposed ability to detect and respond to traffic signals and signs.

    While Tesla calls the package that it now charges $7,000 for “Full Self-Driving” it is in fact anything but. In fact, beyond the preceding sentence, I will no longer use Tesla branding because even the manufacturer acknowledges that the human driver remains fully responsible and must keep their eyes on the road and hands on wheel while using the systems. Any system that mandates human supervision is neither autonomous nor self-driving. It is at best partially automated.

  7. Dyson finally unveils its cancelled electric car
    According to The Times, Dyson revealed that his electric vehicle, codenamed “N526,” would have been a seven-seater with a whopping 600-mile range per charge. This was largely thanks to the company’s proprietary solid-state batteries, which could apparently sustain such performance “even on a freezing February night, on the naughty side of 70 mph on the motorway, with the heater on and the radio at full blast.” Assuming that 600-mile figure is based on Europe’s WLTP standards, it’s an impressive jump from Tesla Model S’ 379 miles and almost doubling the long-range Model X’s 314 miles (the latter also a seven-seater).
  8. Ford announces that Mustang Mach-E electric car charges 30% faster than they thought
    Ford announced today that the Mustang Mach-E electric car is charging 30% faster than they thought in new tests.

    Since the release of the Mustang Mach-E specs, Ford has been somewhat vague when it comes to the electric car’s charge rate.

  9. Toyota charts ambitious year in China
    Toyota is billing 2020 as the start of its electrification campaign in China, with three electric vehicles to be introduced into the Chinese market: Toyota C-HR and IZOA as well as Lexus UX.

    The vehicles will be late-comers as local Chinese carmakers and some international brands have already introduced similar models, but Toyota claims theirs have better performance. For example, the Toyota vehicles’ batteries retain 80 percent of their original capacities after 10 years of use, which is best in the industry.

    Dong, senior executive vice-president of Toyota China, said: “I don’t think Toyota lags behind in electrification. It just wants to offer something different.”

    Toyota plans to launch 10 pure electric vehicles by 2025 in China and gradually launch them globally. It expects sales of electrified vehicles, including pure electric ones, to reach 5.5 million by that year, and China will be the most important market.

  10. Lexus gewährt zehn Jahre Garantie auf die Batterie des UX300e
    Lexus wird bei seinem ersten BEV-Modell UX 300e eine zehnjährige Garantie (oder eine Million Kilometer) für alle Funktionen der Traktionsbatterie bieten. Zudem nennen die Japaner weitere Details zu dem Akku – und dessen Luftkühlung.
  11. This Was Supposed to Be the Year Driverless Cars Went Mainstream
    Tech companies once promised that fully functional, self-driving cars would be on the road by 2020 and on the path to remaking transportation and transforming the economy.

    But a decade after Google unveiled an autonomous car prototype with global fanfare, the technology is still far from ready, and many investors are wary of dumping more money into it — just when the world could benefit from cars that ferry people and deliver packages without a human driver.

  12. Projekt Artemys: Festkörperbatterien als Zukunftsperspektive für E-Mobilität im Fokus
    Dies bedeutet, dass die Festkörperbatterien aus dem Projekt Artemys somit nicht nur ohne flüssige Komponenten auskommen, sondern auch ohne Polymeranteile. Rehm beschäftigt sich im Verbundprojekt mit der Erarbeitung skalierbarer Fertigungslösungen für die Trocknung und Sinterung von oxidischen Kompositkathoden und Festelektrolytseparatoren. Dennoch muss man festhalten: Durchbrüche in der Batterieforschung bedeuten oft nicht viel, wenn sie nicht skalierbar sind. Dazu gehören auch Fortschritte bei Festkörper-Batterien. Komponenten für Batterien müssen kostengünstiger und in größerem Maßstab hergestellt werden können. Leider sind viele dieser vielversprechenden Materialien entweder zu kostspielig oder zu schwierig für die Herstellung in großen Mengen zu vergrößern.
  13. Brennstoffzellentechnik: Daimler und Rolls-Royce kooperieren
    Die Lkw-Sparte von Daimler und Rolls-Royce arbeiten enger zusammen, um die Einsatzgebiete der Brennstoffzellentechnik zu erweitern. Die Technik soll die Entwicklung stationärer Notstromaggregate vorantreiben und später in schweren Nutzfahrzeugen zum Einsatz kommen.
