In-Wheel Motors for Electric Vehicles Evolving Fast
Electric motor drive is key to all electric vehicles and it is taking new forms. See IDTechEx report, "Electric Motors for Electric Vehicles Land, Water, Air 2019-2029".
BYD, Toyota to jointly develop battery electric vehicles
BYD Toyota have signed an agreement for the joint development of battery electric vehicles. The two parties will jointly develop sedans and low-floor SUVs as well as the onboard batteries for these vehicles and others with the aim to launch them in the Chinese market under the Toyota brand in the first half of the 2020s.
Dr Peter Harrop explores Toyota's progress with pure electric vehicles in 2019.
Electric bus demand surging outside China
In electric vehicles, China is not what it used to be. Electric bike demand collapsed five years ago, and electric bus demand followed two years ago. With electric buses, the reason was entirely a precipitous drop in government financial support of demand and production, the peak being accentuated by pulling forward to grab subsidies while there were available. In 2020 they will be zero but despite this, in 2027 China plans that full electrification of its bus fleet will be complete.
Future of Heavy Duty EV Motors Off Road
Fork lift trucks are almost all induction because reliability and affordability trump performance here. Their batteries are rapidly going lithium-ion for something less toxic and nearer to fit-and-forget but there is no similar issue with the motors.
Volkswagen Group (Volkswagen AG)

Update BYD 2019 Sales Figures
Lightyear One vs Tesla Model 3
New solar car assessed: needs, uniques, competition.
Plug-in Hybrids Questioned
IDTechEx now believes that there may be no hybrid cars sold after 2030 other than 48V MHEV continuing for a few years due to their exceptionally low cost. Read on to find out more.
Drayage Trucks: Three Zero Emission Options Compete - Supercapacitor,
Trucks greatly outnumber buses in the world but because buses cause so many foul air deaths in cities they are the first to be electrified, over 400,000 now being pure electric. Read on to find out more.
BYD Auto discuss EVs, energy storage systems, solar farms and more
BYD Auto is an innovative independent national auto brand and develops electric vehicles with unique technologies. In the field of new energy, BYD has developed green products such as solar farms, battery energy storage stations, electric vehicles, and LEDs.
Electric Buses: Chinese Now Win Abroad
In the protected Chinese market all the over 400,000 pure electric buses in use are all made in China. The Europeans cannot complain. It is more than a coincidence that all the recent order for 900 pure electric buses in Paris went to French companies and we find a belief that 80% of bus business in Germany is a carve up between two German companies.
World's largest public bus system transitions to electric vehicles
In line with Governor Anies Baswedan's vision to make Jakarta one of the greenest cities in the world, the Transjakarta Bus Rapid Transit System is rolling out a trial programme of electric buses on certain routes in the city.
