Porsche going all in on electric
Bloomberg News | November 22, 2019

QUOTE
By 2025 every other car Porsche sells will have a plug, Zellmer predicted. He pushed back against the notion that luxury cars and sustainability are incompatible.

“To remain what we are, we have to adapt,” he said. “If we don’t adapt, we’re going to be left out.”

Porsche’s legendary 911 will be the last in its line to go electric, Zellmer said. There’s been considerable controversy over when and how the brand’s oldest model will make the transition.

One of the big problems for the Govt is that the Electric cars are not going to be paying any petrol tax.

The big problem with electric vehicles that no politician wants to deal with

QUOTE
The transition to electric vehicles (EV) presents the government with its toughest challenge in almost 20 years, according to a leading business figure.

That challenge is not the move to EV in itself, rather the multibillion-dollar black hole that it threatens to create.

Consider these figures: In the 2019 financial year, Australian motorists paid $19.68 billion in fuel excise tax, pouring into government coffers at 40.9 cents a litre.


The year before, Australians also bought 2216 electric vehicles (EV).

And in 2019, sales for the first half of the year were up by 90 per cent over the same period in 2018.

In the context of the Australian car market, the numbers aren’t big, but they are growing.

When I was a young lD, my uncle gave me some sage adice.
“Son, there are three things in life that youneed to be extremely wary of:
1. Teetotallers.
2. Vegatarians
3. The electrics in any Austin.”

Here's a woefully under-baked story about the next big thing (an Aluminium-air battery). And it's not rechargeable.
https://smallcaps.com.au/can-new-high-range...um-ion-battery/

- that they're aiming for the tuk-tuk market says something about the lack of power, I suspect. Also the involvement of Austin .... a new version of the A40, anyone?

a lot of comment seems to be around the choice of Singapore, which doesn't have an auto industry, for the factory.

QUOTE
James Dyson, the inventor of the bagless vacuum cleaner, has cancelled his ambitious plan to build an electric car because the project was not commercially viable.

Dyson said his engineers had built a "fantastic car" and that the project was not being closed due to any failures in research and development.

"However, though we have tried very hard throughout the development process, we simply can no longer see a way to make it commercially viable," he told staff on Thursday.

The company had tried to find a buyer for the project but had not succeeded, he said.


QUOTE
Although Dyson is closing its automotive division, it said it would continue to develop solid state batteries, and other technology including vision systems, robotics, machine learning and AI.

"Our battery will benefit Dyson in a profound way and take us in exciting new directions," the 72 year-old founder said
