Bolt EV Fires, Suppliers Put together Tesla 4680 Cells, Infiniti EVs, EU Finish Date 2035 for ICE: As we speak’s Automobile Information
General Motors is back in investigation mode after a few more Bolt EV fires. The EU is tightening its targets and wants to phase out new internal combustion engines by 2035. Infiniti’s plan to offer its future vehicles as production hybrids has reportedly failed. And several suppliers are likely to make Tesla’s future 4680 cells. This and more here at Green Car Reports.
GM has advised owners of certain 2017-2019 Chevy Bolt EV models to park their vehicles outside and avoid overnight charging. That’s after fires in at least two parked Bolt EV models that have already been given a recall drug. Yes, this is possibly the same problem that dragged on since last October.
The European Union has proposed 2035 as the end date for vehicles with internal combustion engines, along with more aggressive emissions reductions by 2030, a mandate for charging stations with a minimum distance of 60 kilometers on major roads by 2025 and a phasing out of the socket. in the case of hybrids as “low-emission vehicles”. However, the member states still have to approve the proposal.
Nissan’s luxury brand Infiniti planned to offer a range of vehicles based on their “inspiration” concepts, either as series hybrid or fully battery-electric models. Now that the hybrids have been cut off from it, it is unclear what that plan looks like.
And maybe not have to worry so much about the ramp-up of the 4680 cell format in the near future. According to a report from South Korea, both Samsung and LG have developed sample cells in the larger cylindrical size, which are considered important for achieving energy density and performance gains in semi and cybertruck.
