- With engines whirring, electric car racing comes to Brooklyn
By RALPH D. RUSSO, AP Sports Writer - Sunday Jul 16, 2017
The Formula One-style, open-wheel cars reach speeds of 140 mph but only about 80 decibels, compared with 130 decibels for the cars with combustion engines.Sam Bird from the DS Virgin Racing team won Sunday's 49-lap race over the narrow 1.2-mile, 10-turn track from the pole to sweep the weekend races for team owner Richard Branson, the billionaire adventurer.The three-year-old FE series is sanctioned by the International Federation of Automobiles, the governing body for Formula One, making the New York City ePrix the first race run by a major motorsports organization in the five boroughs.With the track right next to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, the Statute of Liberty had a great view of the starting grid."With it being electric, there's no delay from when you put the throttle down to when it gets to the wheels," said Mitch Evans of New Zealand, who drives for Panasonic Jaguar Racing, a new team to the circuit this year.The Hudson Horns played Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" as select fans strolled across the black top as if it was a weekend street fair, minus the food carts and folding tables full of homemade wares for sale.At the Allianz Explorer Zone, fans could check out BMW's electric automobiles and Jaguars' I-Pace Concept, an SUV that will be the company's first entry into the electric market.While Formula E aspires to be a highly competitive racing circuit, it is also a means by which automakers can develop electric technology and show off what it can do.

- Apple Reportedly Working With Chinese Manufacturer of Electric Vehicle Batteries
By Joe Rossignol - Thursday Jul 20, 2017
Apple is quietly working with Chinese battery manufacturer Contemporary Amperex Technology Limited on automotive battery research and development, according to Shanghai-based Yicai Global.
The report, citing unnamed sources, claims the two companies have signed a confidentiality agreement to work together on a "scheme" related to the field of batteries, but no specific details were provided.
CATL was founded in 2011 as a spinoff of Amperex Technology Limited, a large supplier of batteries for iPhones and other Apple products.
The company, based in Ningde, China, describes itself as a leader in lithium-ion battery research and development, including battery cells, materials, and recycling. CATL says it currently has more than 3,700 full-time R&D personnel from a number of well-known universities and laboratories around the world.
CATL claims it has been the world's third largest manufacturer of hybrid and electric vehicle batteries for the past two consecutive years, behind Chinese rival BYD and Panasonic, which supplies Tesla with batteries. The company's lithium-ion batteries are used in both passenger vehicles and buses.
The purpose of Apple's involvement with CATL remains unknown, as the iPhone maker reportedly abandoned plans for its own electric vehicle, at least temporarily, last year. Apple has instead emphasized its interest in autonomous technologies.
"We're focusing on autonomous systems," said Tim Cook, Apple CEO, in an interview with Bloomberg Television's Emily Chang last month. "It's a core technology that we view as very important."
In recent months, Apple has pivoted to an autonomous driving software platform being developed under the leadership of Bob Mansfield. Apple has been testing its self-driving software using a fleet of Lexus SUVs, which have been spotted on streets in California after Apple received a permit from the DMV.
CATL plans to increase its battery output to 50 gigawatt hours by 2020, which could make it one of the industry's two largest manufacturers. The other, Tesla, expects total output from its Gigafactory in Nevada to reach at least 35 gigawatt hours, with the potential for up to 150 gigawatt hours, by 2020.
The company's other goals by 2020 include significantly reducing battery costs, improving energy density, and increasing the speed of charging. Last year, it demonstrated a 4C fast-charging solution that takes only 15 minutes to charge a lithium-ion electric vehicle battery to the 90 percent level.
