and this company is listed on the ASX .... Carbon Revolution (CBR)

QUOTE
[The company] is eyeing rising demand from the electric vehicle market, with six former Tesla workers beavering away at its Geelong plant as it pushes to expand into a sector which is accelerating in the pandemic. Carbon Revolution chief executive Jake Dingle said electric car companies were pushing hard to find ways of lowering the weight of vehicles and reducing in-car road noise for drivers and lightweight wheels are a part of the solution. The EV makers are looking for range extension and better aerodynamics are important as well. It is ticking every box, Mr Dingle said.

The whisper quiet engines of electric vehicles meant electric vehicle manufacturers were seeking out ways of reducing the amount of noise from all aspects of the vehicle. Carbon Revolution is working on a range of dampeners to further lessen noise from wheels.

Carbon Revolution industrialisation director, Luke Preston, established and then built up the general assembly manufacturing team overseeing the Tesla Model 3 production in California. He started as an engineer at Ford Australia and Holden Special Vehicles before heading to the United States....

Carbon Revolution chairman James Douglas said it was difficult for any company to navigate through the pandemic because of the sheer uncertainty, but raising capital early in the pandemic had set the company on a steadier course.

Carbon Revolution supplies wheels that are about 40 per cent lighter than conventional wheels to carmakers including Ford, Ferrar and Renault.

Mr Dingle said customers overseas were returning to more normal production schedules and although the pandemic had caused disruptions in the early months in Europe, momentum was starting to build again.

It is coming back to normal. Everyone sees this as temporary, Mr Dingle said.


Carbon Revolution, which listed on the ASX late last year with an issue price of $2.60, has had a rollercoaster ride since becoming a public company. With the upheaval of the COVID19 pandemic, it moved early to raise capital. The company raised $28 million in extra capital in March to shore up its balance sheet. Carbon Revolution shares closed at $2.56 on Friday. The capital raising was priced at $1.50.

and will this come to pass?
QUOTE
Nicola founder Trevor Milton, just 39, is a Mormon from Utah. Which means there's a decent chance Bronte Capital and John Hempton has held, or holds, a short position in Nikola.

Hempton has publicly spoken about having thousands of scumbags in our database, which is a key input in the construction of the Bronte Capital short book of around 240 companies. And Hempton told the Jolly Swagman podcast in May last year that some groups are over represented in his database of scumbags, the most unlikely of which is Mormons.

Mormons are 2 per cent of the US population but almost 6 per cent of Fortune 500 CEOs, and almost all of those Fortune 500 CEOs came up through a sales function, Hempton said. Mormons are pound-for-pound the best salespeople in the world. The reason is obvious: if you are 19 and you go missionary, you are selling religion – and a pretty weird one – door-to-door. If you can sell religion door-to-door, you can sell anything. It's the best training for a sales job anywhere.

Hempton added that probably 10 per cent of American dodgy frauds have a Mormon connection.

In Oslo, the city is introducing two dozen electric Jaguar taxis that will be able to wirelessly recharge on special pads embedded under the road while they wait for their next fare.
QUOTE
We think that wireless charging is a potential game-changer, said Sture Portvik, a manager for electromobility in the Oslo city government, and we are happy to assist by helping taxi drivers keep moving and not adding cable clutter to the city. By improving infrastructure and providing better charging to the taxi industry, we are confident that by 2024 all taxis in Oslo will be zero emission.

from the Hastings (HAS) Investor presentation for NdPr ..... magnets used in EVs:

• Europe saw significant EV growth of 44% in 2019, highest since 2016
• Automakers are relying on EVs to achieve Europe's 2020/21 carbon-dioxide emissions limits of 95 gm of CO2 per km for passenger cars
• EV markets in Europe will increase substantially due to customer incentives in places like Germany, France and Sweden
• Automakers launched 143 new EVs : 105 BEV and 38 PHEV in 2019. By 2022/23 approx 450 new EV models expected
• Germany with an expected volume of 856,000 EVs, could overtake Chinese players in 2020.
• China: due to the pandemic, government extended EV subsidies to end 2022 including RMB 10 billion (US$1.4 billion) in expanding the charging network.
• In first-quarter 2020, due to Covid 19, EV sales dropped 57 percent from 4Q 2019

Electric Vehicle (EV) growth = Demand for NdPr magnets
✓ Every EV powertrain requires ~1.5 to 2.0kg of NdPr
✓ CAGR of 9% for NdPr magnets 2020 thru 2025
✓ NdPr supply shortage expected >2022

I think it's great to see old vehicles restored. It's history, and old cars get rarer and rarer. Very beneficial for those doing it. We have an old skyline in the drive needing considerable TLC.

Yeah,its probably not a great investment, and probably not practical.
But sometimes you just have to do things for the sake of doing them.
The 1952 landrover I have is in need of some love, affection and money.
The motor and possibly the gear box need rebuilding, and all the running gear will need to be replaced, but, hey, its better than passing it across some publicans bar!

A tesla is way above my price range. I'm more a Leaf or Kona guy and even then I'd wince.
Is converting an old Range Rover worthwhile? You get a nice large EV, but it's still an old body 4WD with the limitations of an EV. Dragging around a big body car in town, but without the range one would like if out touring.

Expensive indeed, but still cheaper than buying a new Tesla.
Here is a new TESLA on CARSALES . Priced at a very reasonable $196,000.
Could buy a very nice Seneca IV or two Twin comanches for that price and travel twenty times the distance on a single fill up.
