Comment on Onvo has prioritized low energy consumption from day 1, says Nio sub-brand chief by Neehaw Asinine

CN EV Post

@GustavoMan627 In reply to GustavoMan627. I think Efficiency should ALWAYS be the prime concern with any EV. Lucid is definitely the most efficient EV on the market and by a big margin. The fact that Mr Li Bin had to think about it over a whole CNY holiday to make a decision, speaks volumes as to why NIO is performing so badly compared to other EV OEMs.

Comment on Onvo has prioritized low energy consumption from day 1, says Nio sub-brand chief by Neehaw Asinine

CN EV Post

@GustavoMan627 In reply to GustavoMan627. There is very little battery swap in Europe and NO Battery Swap in the US. Hence, yes efficiency is very important. As Li Bin said, you pay alot for battery capacity , even with Battery Swap. Having an inefficient car, regardless of cost or size means you are just wasting range or performance or both. And battery SWAP by definition alone will always be less-efficient than an equivalent non-battery swap car.

Chevy Needs A Bolt Pickup To Compete When Tariffs End

CleanTechnica EVs

In another recent article, I argued that automakers had better not become complacent when it comes to tariffs against Chinese EVs. Why? Because there’s no way that lasts forever. Market forces can’t be held back indefinitely, and eventually either buyers will pressure the government to lower the tariffs or other.

Comment on Nio, GAC sign deal on charging and battery swap by Khalid J

CN EV Post

The standardization of battery design and swapping systems among electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers is akin to the universal fuel compatibility in gasoline vehicles. It’s in the best interest of every EV manufacturer to adopt a common battery design for several compelling reasons. Firstly, it would significantly reduce production costs and complexity, as economies of scale could be achieved through uniform production processes.
