China Expected To Dominate The OEM Automotive Industry’s Demand For Critical EV Materials

11 March, 2017 - 19:52

It’s predicted that in the next ten years, China’s industrial policy will be facilitated by its ability to be able to meet critical material demands, which are to be dubbed China Manufacturing 2025. The words “industrial policy” is, in other words, the direction in which the government is leaning towards in terms of taking control of a part of the country’s industrial sector or even the whole of it. Such policies are a no-go zone in the United States, and the slightest hint towards that direction will be met with heavy criticism; which is somehow justified. Take, for instance, the Solyndra Solar Cells attempts which bore no fruit.

Furthermore, the interpretation of Washington, DC on the free market economy issue and its intellectual facilitator, neoliberal economics, does not in any way agree to an “industrial policy.” Contrary to the US, China’s leadership is that of a single part-The Chinese Communist Party; which in itself features a command economy. This is where a few individuals in the government control the economy of the whole nation in regards to the production objectives and the main focus of the economy using back channeled methods to implement their personal goals.

Currently, on trial is the free market capitalism variation by PRC which they have named the Capitalism with Chinese Characteristics. One of the characteristics states that the interested parties manufacturing in the Country whether it be the State Owned Enterprises or the privately owned entities, they MUST meet the required requirements by the PRC Policy. The OEM automotive industry is most likely to be the profoundly affected party by the policy as the People’s Republic of China in this day and age has the final say typically when it comes to the manufacture of trucks, cars, motorbikes, motorcycles, and so on.

TechRules Debuts Its 1287 HP TREV Supercar In The Geneva Motor Show

11 March, 2017 - 12:07

Back with a bang on the Geneva Motor Show, TechRules presented a manic Ren this time round; in other words, a Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle featuring a 1287 horsepower capacity that powers all four wheels. The rear of this supercar has a prolific racy shark fin look to it. Similar to the McLaren F1, it can only accommodate three individuals with each having their own bubble below the canopy.

Situated out of Beijing, TechRules has an impressive website that comprises of an English news page. Zhiyue Tengfeng Technology Investment Corporation from China owns TechRules. Giorgetto Giugiaro and Fabrizio are the main contributors to the Red design with the development done by L.M Gianetti. L.M Gianetti (Engineering Firm) is set to produce the vehicle doing only limited edition versions.

The drivetrain comprises of six electric motors with one fitted in each of the front wheels and two fitted on both the rear wheels each. It also features a turbine and outputs 1287 hp and offers some complexity when it comes to the torque. The motor shaft records a total of 2340 while the wheels record 7800nm.

The Ren also has water-cooled lithium-ion polymer battery pack (710/800-25 kWh). It can do a 0-100 speed elevation in 2.5 seconds with the max speed being 320 kilometers. The chassis is built from carbon fiber with a wishbone double suspension on both the front and rear. The pure electric range on the Ren is 200 km with the range being 800 km.

The turbine can consume 80 liters of petrol. The company reiterates the turbine is flexible when it comes to types of fuels with diesel giving the best performance so far. The bubbles present a genius look especially from behind, and the rear is typically a massive air vent having a diffuser beneath it. Stylish hood with an up-front pushrod suspension. A beige driver’s seat.

With the price not revealed yet, it goes without saying, this beauty will only go for top dollar; nothing less than a million dollars. However, it will take some time before TechRules has the Chinese electric supercar market for itself. The 1360 hp EP9 will get presented by the NIO with the ArcFox 7 getting readied by Beijing Auto which will only have 600 hp.

The Tesla China Data That Elon Musk Doesn’t Want To Disclose

11 March, 2017 - 12:00

With more evidence about Tesla’s Big China Bonanza streaming in, it’s apparent that it either skipped Elon Musk’s mind, or he just doesn’t want to share, at least not in public with average investors. Yesterday, JL Warren Capital, China-watcher, delivered a new research note to customers, offering background, extension, and analysis to details of what was availed over the weekend. In the record, JL Warren inspects “why TSLA made massive sales (Not measured by profit, but by shipment) in China 2016.” The record reveals the intelligent information that’s usually not available to the small investor. It also stirs some serious questions, like does Elon Musk think you’re a fool?

To roundup, Tesla Inc. sent its 10-K yearly record to the SEC on March 1. Deep in the description, is a statement saying that last year, the company had a whopping $1.065 billion of income in China. In previous years, Tesla Inc. performance in the Middle Kingdom was characterized as either “disappointing,” or “dismal,” or “weak.” No explanation was given concerning the sudden jump.

A week prior to that, Tesla issued its stakeholders with quarterly letter espousing trivia like awards from two German magazines and about its batteries powering American Samoa. However, if you try finding the letter for “China,” you’ll get a “No Matches were Found” response.

China is, by a considerable margin, the largest car market in the globe; similarly, they are the world’s biggest for electric vehicles. Car manufacturers across the world bet their future on China. One year ago, Tesla made far less income in China’s 1.4 billion client market compared to Norway, whose population is roughly half that of NYC. A year later, a line in books reads that China is Tesla’s most significant market behind the US, and no one tries to inquire about how that magic happened?

Back in 2014, Musk declined to reveal sales information by region, claiming that “media reads too much into the deliveries.” his egotism gives wealthy investors an unfair advantage; there are different ways of getting to the undisclosed data apart from reading a 10-K, but for an immaterial fee.

Forbes readers got a quick view of the data, over the weekend, and in the hastiness, an error occurred into the data set; which has now been corrected.

It would be extremely useful if Tesla would avail the data to all its shareholders, rather than asserting time and again that they are too stupid to interpret the spreadsheet.
