Solid-State Batteries Is The New Game Changing Battery Tech

As per new research by the Brussels-based campaign group Transport and Environment (T&E), it has been found that solid-state batteries can reduce the carbon footprint of electric vehicle (EV) batteries by almost two-fifths – further increasing EVs’ advantage over fossil fuel vehicles. If sustainably sourced technology and materials are employed in solid-state batteries, the carbon footprint of electric vehicles could be reduced by up to 39%.  Transport & Environment (T&E) commissioned research from Minviro, a London-based company that specializes in raw material life-cycle analysis. Minviro compared emerging solid-state technology to current battery chemistries. T&E claims that solid-state batteries can store more energy with fewer materials and can lower the carbon footprint of an EV battery by 24% effortlessly. T&E summarizes the study that Minviro conducted: The analysis compares a NMC-811 solid state battery, which is one of the most favorable chemistries being developed, to current lithium-ion technology. Solid state technology uses solid ceramic material instead of liquid electrolytes to hold an electric current, also making the batteries more lightweight, faster to charge, and ultimately cheaper. Cecilia Mattea, Clean Vehicles Officer at T&E, explained, "Electric vehicles are already far better for the planet than burning oil, and the carbon footprint of batteries is falling every year. But solid state technology is a step change because their higher energy density means far less materials, and therefore far less emissions, are needed to make them."New mining methods, including extracting lithium from geothermal wells, have significantly decreased climate impacts than more typically used sources such as lithium from hard rock mined in Australia and refined in China. Solid state batteries require up to 35% more lithium than current lithium-ion battery technology, but they use far less graphite and cobalt, which are mostly mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo.MEPs and EU governments are currently negotiating the final text of the new Battery Regulation. T&E calls on lawmakers to both ensure the legislation incentivizes the production of batteries with a lower carbon footprint and expands lithium recycling targets to 70% in 2025 and 90% in 2030 – higher than what the EU Commission has suggested. They must also ensure companies are mandated to protect human rights and the environment in all stages of battery production.

Here Is All You Need To Know About Tata Nexon EV Prime & Its New Tech

The Tata Nexon EV is currently India’s best-selling electric vehicle. It recently received a host of feature updates along with the new ‘Prime’ suffix. These new features can also be availed of by existing Nexon EV owners free of charge, a goodwill gesture from Tata Motors for early EV adopters. However, Tata has explained that subsequent attribute updates for the electric subcompact SUV will come with a cost.The changes when compared to the regular model are subtle but essential. To begin with, Nexon EV Prime has made its debut with features such as Automatic Brake Lamp Activation on Regen, Cruise Control, Indirect Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (iTPMS), smartphone integrated connectivity feature, and charging timeout in case you leave it for more than 110 seconds after it is 100% charged. Nexon EV Prime is expected to arrive in three different shades, including Signature Teal Blue, Glacier White, and Daytona Grey.Just like the older model, Nexon EV Prime is available with a 30.2kWh lithium-ion battery and a single permanent-magnet AC motor. The battery pack is said to be IP67 rated. The overall output from this setup is rated at 129PS with an ARAI-certified range of 312kms.The SUV boasts a 0-100kmph sprint time of 9.9 seconds and has two drive modes - drive and sport.The carmaker is ready to roll a comparable update on the current Nexons via the OTA update. As per Tata Motors, it will enhance the real-world experience of the existing customers without extra charge, from 25th July at the authorized service centers.While addressing the media, Mr. Vivek Srivatsa, Head, Marketing, Sales, and Service Strategy, Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd. said, “The Nexon EV has captured the imagination of the entire nation and has consistently led the way in the electric vehicle segment since its launch. It is the default choice for EV intenders with a market share of over 65%. With the Nexon EV Prime we expect to further strengthen our strategy of keeping our product offerings New Forever. Further with this software update to current owners we are setting new benchmark of what customers can expect as part of Tata EV ownership experience.”This electric SUV is available in five variants, with prices starting from ₹ 14.99 lakh (ex-showroom). As a result, the Tata Nexon EV Prime's entry-level XM variant is about ₹ 45,000, and the Dark XZ+ variant is ₹ 20,000 more expensive than their corresponding previous models. Overall, the price difference varies and depends on the variant of the Nexon EV Prime.Nexon EV Prime ex-showroom prices -XM – ₹ 14.99 lakhXZ+ - ₹ 16.30 lakhXZ+ Lux – ₹ 17.30 lakhXZ+ Dark – ₹ 16.49 lakhXZ+ Lux Dark – ₹ 17.50 lakhThe car could get more software-dependent feature updates in the future as well. Future Tata EVs, especially those based on new generation platforms like the Concept Curvv and the Avinya, will be capable of OTA updates too. It is expected that the upcoming premium Tata electric vehicles will get free updates for a longer period, unlike the Nexon EV which is a mass market model.These types of feature updates can improve the usability of the vehicle. Meanwhile, OTA updates could also enhance the overall experience of an EV, in which most functions are controlled by software. It could include improved performance or range by a new calibration for the drive control module, improved braking for the brake-by-wire technology, or new alerts on the multi-information display in the instrument cluster.In March 2022, Tata Motors notified an upsurge in price in the range of 2-2.5% for all its commercial vehicles. Tata Motors is anticipated to observe the older prices for customers who had booked their cars before April 23, 2022. Tata Motors reported car sales at 45,197 units in June 2022. This was an 87.46 percent YoY growth over 24,110 units sold in June 2021 while MoM sales increased by 4.28 percent over 43,341 units sold in May 2022. Demand has risen in the electric vehicle segment to 9,283 units in Q1 FY23 over 1,715 units sold in Q1 FY22, while there was also a 6 percent increase in demand from 1,23,051 units sold in Q4 FY22.

Hyundai Ioniq 6 Is Launched, To Rival Tesla Model3

The Hyundai Ioniq 6 employs the same basic platform as the Ioniq 5, specifically the 77.4 kWh battery pack. The launch version of the Ioniq 6 utilizes its 0.21 drag coefficient to attain an EPA range estimation of 610 kilometres. That is only possible in combination with rear-wheel drive and 18-inch rims. As with the other E-GMP models, the rear-wheel drive produces 168 kW in combination with this battery.By comparison, the significantly less aerodynamic Ioniq 5 comes to a WLTP range of 507 kilometres in the new model year with the same battery-drive combination, while the Kia EV6 is quoted at up to 528 kilometres. At the market launch of the Hyundai Ioniq 5, a maximum of 480 kilometres were possible in the standard test with rear-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive version with a second electric motor on the front axle, familiar from the Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6, is also possible. The launch variant of the Ioniq 6 reaches 60 in a brief 5.1-seconds outpacing its more expensive BMW i4 rival. The 800-volt charging system of the E-GMP models remains unchanged. With the large battery, the Hyundai Ioniq 6 can charge at 350 kWh at a D.C. fast charger, which translates to an 80% charge adding over 300 miles of range occurs in approximately 15 minutes. Hyundai also includes an adapter that allows vehicle-to-load charging. In the event of a power outage or blackout, the Ioniq 6 can replace a generator, powering the essentials in the average American home for several days.In the interior, Hyundai highlights that they have now installed four USB-C and one USB-A port, in addition to the aforementioned 230-volt socket. This should also allow the interior to become a mobile office: The centre console is designed in such a way that it can also serve as a shelf for a laptop or tablet when the car is stationary. Incidentally, there are no more buttons and switches on the inside of the doors; the electric windows are located in the centre console.Thomas Schemera, Global Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Customer Experience Division of Hyundai Motor Company, also emphasised that the focus was on a “stress-free driving experience”. Incidentally, Hyundai does not see a direct competitor model for the Ioniq 6. “I don’t want to be arrogant to say that there is no competitor. From the customer’s point of view, there are of course other e-limousines on the market,” Schemera said. “But looking at the design, the range and the concept of the vehicle with a focus on efficiency, we don’t see any direct competitors in the segment. The Ioniq 6 is unique.”What will then be missing from the Ioniq 6’s surcharge list is the solar roof familiar from the Ioniq 5 – even though the Ioniq 6 is so trimmed for efficiency. In front of the driver is one of two 4k 12-inch displays. The excellent graphics show the charge rate, energy consumption, speed, media, and navigation. The range meter takes into account driving style over the vehicle's life, traffic, temperature, and average vehicle speed for an incredibly accurate reading. To the right, beneath the same glass panel, another 12-inch display takes care of multimedia purposes.Hyundai is not naming prices at this stage, this is to be done before the market launch. While the Hyundai Ioniq 6 is expected to be expensive for a car sporting a Hyundai badge, it is decidedly more inexpensive than its rival, Tesla Model 3. Production in South Korea is scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2022, with Europe boss Michael Cole planning to launch a pre-sale in some countries towards the end of Q3. In South Korea and Europe, the first vehicles are to be delivered this year, but larger numbers and the US launch are not expected until 2023. The dual motor launch variant will start between  $42,000-$48,000. For that expense, buyers receive an exceptional amount of standard features, and a driving range outpaces the Model 3.
