Electric Buses from Mercedes-Benz for Reutlingen Stadtverkehr

4 purely electrically powered Mercedes-Benz urban buses were handed over to Reutlinger Stadtverkehr on 29 November. At RSV’s completely new and purpose-built electric bus depot, Hermann Fröhlich, Head of the South-West Sales Region at Daimler Buses, and Dr. Jens Heinemann, Head of Private Customers at Daimler Buses Germany, handed over the symbolic key to Mark Hogenmüller, Managing Director of Reutlinger Stadtverkehrsgesellschaft mbH.

Eight years ago already, RSV tested electrically powered buses in practical operations. The transport company can therefore look back on the multifaceted experiences made at the time, and is now putting in place concrete plans for four further vehicles for their number 8 line. In the medium term over the course of the next five years, further electric buses will be procured until the public transport network can be served entirely by emission-free vehicles.

China wil meer elektrisch rijden

Gepubliceerd op 3 dec 2019 om 07:53 | Views: 386

PEKING (AFN) - China maakt vaart met het vergroenen van zijn enorme wagenpark. In 2020 moet een kwart van de nieuwe auto's een volledig elektrisch zijn, of een hybride auto met of zonder stekker. Dat het ministerie van Industrie en Informatietechnologie bekendgemaakt in nieuwe plannen.

Enkele jaren terug lag die doelstelling voor 2020 nog op 20 procent, tegen een actueel verkooppercentage van ongeveer 5 procent. Met de stap wil de Chinese overheid de vervuiling tegengaan, maar ook de afhankelijkheid van olie uit het buitenland.

Ook wordt met de plannen de wat vertragende Chinese auto-industrie een zetje gegeven. In een voorlopig voorstel stond overigens dat in 2035 ongeveer 60 procent van het wagenpark "geëlektrificeerd" moest zijn, maar dat cijfer ontbrak in de definitieve versie.
Audi Plans EUR 12 Billion Investment for EVs

Audi AG has planned a total amount of approximately EUR 37 billion for research and development expenditure and investment in property, plant and equipment over the next five years. Against the backdrop of its roadmap towards electrification, the manufacturer is planning upfront expenditure of EUR 12 billion solely for electric mobility.

By 2025, the Audi Group intends to have more than 30 electrified models in its product range, 20 of which will be fully electric. Audi intends to achieve about 40 percent of its worldwide unit sales with all-electric and hybridized automobiles by then. In order to achieve the rapid scaling of electric mobility, Audi is working with Porsche to develop the premium electrification architecture for large electric cars, and the Modular E Drive System is being developed together with Volkswagen. The cross-brand architectures will enable high Group synergies to be utilized in the future.

The successful Audi Transformation Plan is freeing up the necessary funds: Since the start of the program, the ATP has already contributed EUR 4 billion to earnings. Furthermore, measures taken in the context of Audi.Zukunft are to free up approximately EUR 6 billion for future investments by 2029.

Beursblik: AMG en Umicore kijken naar elektrificatie wagenpark China

(ABM FN) Tegen 2025 moet een kwart van de wagens die in China worden verkocht, elektrisch zijn aangedreven, en dat zal voor een flinke groei van de Chinese elektrische automarkt zorgen, maar de beslissing zal minder winstgevend zijn voor de automotive industrie. Dit stelde ING.

Uit een conceptvoorstel van het Chinese ministerie van Industrie blijkt dat tegen 2025 een kwart van de wagens die in China worden verkocht, elektrisch aangedreven moeten zijn. De doelstelling was eerder nog 20 procent. Momenteel is dit volgens ING nog maar 5,5 procent.

ING merkte op dat op korte termijn de verkoop van elektrische wagens in China terugvalt vanwege het opheffen van subsidies eerder dit jaar.

De terugval en de nieuwe doelstellingen van het Chinese ministerie van Industrie laten volgens ING zowel de langetermijnkansen als de uitdagingen zien voor de Chinese elektrische automarkt.

ING verwacht niet dat China weer subsidies zal invoeren om aan de doelstellingen te voldoen, maar kijkt nu naar manieren om de markt te stimuleren via een verbetering van de infrastructuur. Daarbij kan volgens ING gedacht worden aan een uitgebreider netwerk van oplaadstations.

"Dit zal leiden tot een meer ordelijke groei van de markt, maar ook tot minder winstgevendheid voor de automotive industrie", aldus ING. Dit zal gevolgen hebben voor AMG en Umicore.

Bank of America wees al eerder op de gevolgen van de verslechterde Chinese markt voor elektrische auto’s voor Umicore. Volgens analisten van de Amerikaanse zakenbank kan de groei in 2020 bij Umicore in gevaar kunnen komen als de verkopen van elektrische voertuigen in China zich niet beginnen te herstellen.

ING heeft een koopadvies op AMG met een koersdoel van 35,00 euro en eveneens een koopadvies op Umicore met een koersdoel van 41,00 euro. Bank of America heeft een Neutraal advies op Umicore met een koersdoel van 40,00 euro.

Rheinmetall Develops High-Voltage Components for Fuel-Cell Applications

Rheinmetall Automotive subsidiary Pierburg GmbH is applying its accumulated combustion engine expertise in pumps and valves to offer special products for fuel cell vehicles. In addition to a leak free control valve that is suitable for the specific requirements of fuel cells, two other products have been developed and occupy a special position in the market to date, a coolant pump and a hydrogen recirculation blower. Both are suitable for both low voltage and high voltage vehicle electrical systems with 400 and 800 volts. The Multi Purpose Valve has a particularly compact package with low weight and is suitable for use on the cathode side of the fuel cell. It is resistant to de-ionized water and hydrogen and allows proportional and precise control. It combines low leakage with a high flow rate and low pressure loss at the same time. The valve operates as an air diverting or bypass valve for the air compressor or can be used as a pressure control valve as well as an isolation valve or shut-off valve for the fuel cell stack.

In addition to the proven pumps for 12 to 48 volts which have been in series production for a long time, coolant pumps have now been specially developed for fuel-cell applications, which are suitable for 400 volts or alternatively for up to 800 volts. These high-voltage coolant pumps are driven by a brushless EC motor with sensorless control. They are equipped with LIN / CAN bus communication and corresponding diagnostic functions. The pumps are rated for up to 2.2 kilowatts. They are suitable for use with de-ionized water and various coolants.

Fuel cell systems have a recirculation system for unused hydrogen on the anode side. An active blower is often used for this purpose, which must function safely and efficiently even at high concentrations of hydrogen. To ensure this, Pierburg has developed a hydrogen recirculation blower based on a side-channel blower and without dynamic sealing elements to ensure ultimate hydrogen tightness over lifetime. The hydrogen recirculation blower is available in both high- and low-voltage variants. The blower can start from cold and has excellent NVH characteristics. It has a rating of 0.7 to 2 kilowatts or up to 400 watts in the low-voltage version. It is driven by a brushless motor with sensorless control; LIN / CAN bus communication and diagnostic functions are also available.
