China wants half of the electric vehicle business

China signed a deal to secure a huge amount of the global supply of cobalt, key component of electric cars batteries

China has signed a huge deal to secure the lion’s share of global cobalt supply — a core component of electric car batteries. The deal will see GEM — a $4.6 billion company listed on the Shenzhen stock exchange — purchase 50,000 tonnes of cobalt from mining company Glencore over the next three years. According to the Financial Times, that’s equal to half of the world’s total cobalt supply in 2017 — and comprises around one third of Glencore’s total production estimates through 2020.

The Glencore deal locks in China’s position as a market leader in the manufacturing of electric car batteries globally — given that it already produces more than 80% of the world’s refined cobalt. Prices for the metal have doubled over the past two years as electric vehicle manufacturers scramble to secure adequate supplies.

Volkswagen invests $11.8 billion to build China electric cars

15 all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles over the next 2 years

Volkswagen Group said on Thursday it plans to spend 10 billion euros ($11.8 billion) by 2025 to develop and manufacture all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles as it seeks to comply with upcoming stringent rules in China.

The group, which includes Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE) and Audi AG (NSUG.DE), intends to launch 15 of the so-called new energy vehicles (NEV) models over the next two to three years, and an additional 25 after 2025, China chief Jochem Heizmann told Reuters on Thursday. China’s NEV production and sales quotas, which must be met by 2019, have prompted a flurry of electric car deals and new launches as automakers in China race to ensure they do not fall short. Automakers that do fall short will be required to buy credits.

Could Chrysler be sold to a Chinese company?

China’s Great Wall confirms interest in Fiat Chrysler

A direct overture by Chinese automaker Great Wall Motor Co Ltd to Italian-American automaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV sent FCA shares up sharply on Monday, as investors cheered the potential sale of the storied Jeep brand. It was not immediately clear whether Great Wall Motor wanted all or part of FCA.

Automotive News first reported earlier on Monday that Great Wall Motor’s President, Wang Fengying, plans to contact FCA to discuss acquiring the Jeep brand. “With respect to this case, we currently have an intention to acquire. We are interested in (FCA),” an official at Great Wall Motor’s press relations department told Reuters. He declined to give his name and gave no further details.Two people familiar with the matter said Great Wall Motor had asked for a meeting with FCA to make an offer for all or part of the group.

FCA, which is incorporated in the Netherlands and based in London, said in a statement it had not been approached by Great Wall Motor, and was implementing its current business plan. Its main investor, Italy’s Agnelli family, declined to comment.

Tesla: 1,800 Model 3 reservations a day

The waiting list for Tesla’s new Model 3 is growing fast

Tesla (TSLA) said Wednesday it is now averaging more than 1,800 net reservations each day for its cheaper electric car, following an event last week to hand over keys to the first 30 Model 3 vehicles. Tesla did not provide an updated figure for its total waiting list. At the event last week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the reservation number was over 500,000. On a conference call with analysts Wednesday, he clarified the number was actually 455,000, including cancellations.

The strong demand is a mixed blessing for Tesla as it grapples with scaling up production to make good on deliveries for its first mass market car. Tesla said it remains “on track” to hit its production goals. Tesla expects to produce 1,500 Model 3 vehicles in the upcoming third quarter, 5,000 vehicles produced per week by the end of this year and 10,000 per week by the end of 2018.

US Administration bets on the Electric Vehicule industry

White House unleashes dollars to bolster infrastructure for electric vehicles

The White House has just given a boost to the e-car business. Unless you live in an area of the U.S. with plentiful electric vehicle chargers, buying an EV is a nonstarter, or at best a tough choice. Even if you can charge your car at your house, who wants to face the prospect of needing a tow home if you run out of juice? A wide and dense network infrastructure of electric car charging stations is absolutely essential to the dreams and intentions of car manufacturers, government regulators, and anyone else hoping for the shift from fossil fuel dependency. Thursday’s expansion by the federal government of a $4.5 billion guaranteed loan program to support large-scale deployment of electric vehicle charging facilities and other actions in support of EVs is a big step in that direction.
