EVs, upgrades and charging in both senses of the word

The electric car is the future : thus says Dr Ulrich Hackenburg, Audi s board member for technical development. His definition includes plug-in hybrids such as the A3 E-tron and R8 E-tron (pictured) and, in this interview with Automotive News Europe. he notes that Audi is planning to offer a completely new world of services to the customer all the way to green energy supplies and the installation of fast-chargers in garages .

(Natural) gas in Geneva

Skoda s going gas-tastic at the Geneva Motor Show this coming week: its VisionC concept (a large five-door liftback on the next-gen Octavia platform) has a bivalent 1.4 TSI engine (turbocharged, direct-injection) which can run on either petrol or CNG, and meets EU2020 emissions legislation. This powertrain similar to that in the just-announced Octavia/Octavia Combi G-Tec, and indeed, the Audi A3 G-Tron and Volkswagen Golf TGI is said to return 72mpg and emit just 91g/km in gas mode. Natural gas drive is an important pillar of ŠKODA’s sustainability strategy , says the company .

Porsche is to unveil its 919 Hybrid LMP1 Le Mans racer in Geneva this week; says it can therefore be regarded as a research laboratory for the technology of future Porsche production vehicles . Lexus is to bring the RC 300h hybrid coupe (as seen in Detroit), and has confirmed its launch in Europe for 2015.

Dutch drivers: more likely to opt for an EV or fuel cell car if they do a low annual mileage, don t tow a caravan; range and refuelling times key factors in decision-making. Study by Hoen and Koetse in the latest issue of this journal. And some facts n figures on Californian plug-in drivers from the Center for Sustainable Energy /CARB here (high-income, middle-aged, motivated by use of car-pool lanes ).

Have seen news that China s Geely Group has bought out the UK s Emerald Automotive. developer of a range-extended delivery van and associated ER-EV tech.

Over half of 8000 people questioned in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Austria reckoned that in the future, they ll buy a mobility solution rather than a car rundown here. Nearly 64% reckoned they d use multi-modal transport apps as well, though 63% still said that they wanted to own a car (24% of whom thought they d also use hired/shared cars where appropriate).

Corporate car-sharing to grow, says Frost Sullivan; figures, projections and opinion here. And here s a date for the diary (not that I can afford to go) the FS Urban Mobility 3.0 conference/workshop in London, June 26th.

The Kandi EV-sharing service, which started out in Hangzhou with its distinctive tower of microcars, is expanding across China; more at .

And here s a biofuel that could smell interesting as it burns Extreme Biodiesel Inc is aiming to buy some land in California to cultivate hemp for fuel. Release posted here .

But I predict a riot warning on the growth of biofuels at the expense of fuel crops, as well as the prospect of global riots if we fail to solve our chronic addition to fossil fuels and transition to a post-carbon economy, at the Guardian Plus, at the Observer. a report on environmentally-destructive underwater mining, including the trawl for rare-earth metals and ores for batteries (for gadgets and vehicles). Scary stuff. (Lunar land-grab. anyone?).

Not the answer to everyone s motoring needs, but I do love an old Love Bug Zelectric Motors of San Diego is now up and running with its upcycled classic Beetle conversions, and is also selling DIY powertrain kits. Rather nice for local trundling-around in SoCal, I would imagine.
