The UAW, which is facing the loss of jobs held by union members as the industry moves away from vehicles with internal-combustion engines, is pressing automakers such as General Motors and Ford for additional work and investment at plants in the U.S.
Established automakers are going to fight like hell to keep what they’ve got. It’s going to be the greatest battle this industry has ever seen, against startups Tesla, Fisker, Arrival, Rivian, Faraday Future, Lucid, Nikola and others.
The Ioniq 5 supports 800V charging as standard functionality but can handle 400V charging with no additional hardware or adapters. In the real world, that technology gives the car the ability to charge from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes.
BMW describes the iX as the company’s technology flagship, bringing together the latest developments in electrification, connectivity, design and services. The 4-door i4 Gran Coupé boasts sporty looks and driving dynamics, the automaker says.
Stephan Winkelmann, president and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, says the commitment to an electric future will be met with the same enthusiasm the company has applied to its internal-combustion engines.
The EV6 will be the first Kia to use the E-GMP platform, which also can be found in the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and future EVs from these brands and Genesis. Kia says the E-GMP is the world’s first 800V, multi-charging architecture.
Set to be revealed at the end of June ahead of planned North American deliveries later this year, the new Porsche model is described as the most powerful Cayenne to feature a non-electrified powertrain yet.
The Ioniq 5 will offer up to 300 miles (483 km) of driving range and a Vehicle-to-Load function allowing users to freely use or charge electric devices, such as electric bicycles, scooters or camping equipment out of the vehicle, Hyundai says.
