China search giant Baidu considers making own electric vehicles…

BEIJING, Dec 15 (Reuters) – China’s Baidu Inc is considering making its own electric vehicles and has held talks with automakers about the possibility, said three people with knowledge of the matter, the latest move in a race among tech firms to develop smart cars.

The search engine leader, which also develops autonomous driving technology and internet connectivity infrastructure, is considering contract manufacturing, one of the people said, or creating a majority-owned venture with automakers.

The initiative would be a step up from internet peers such as Tencent Holdings Ltd, Amazon.com Inc and Alphabet Inc, which have also developed auto-related technology or invested in smart-car startups.

Baidu has held preliminary talks – without reaching any decisions – with automakers including Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co Ltd, Guangzhou Automobile Group Co Ltd and China FAW Group Corp Ltd’s Hongqi, on a possible venture, the people said, declining to be identified as the talks were private.

Baidu declined to comment.

GAC said it has a strategic partnership with Baidu and that any further cooperation is subject to discussion. Geely said it was not familiar with the matter. FAW did not respond to a request for comment.

Baidu established autonomous driving unit Apollo in 2017.
The unit mainly supplies technology powered by artificial intelligence and work with automakers such as Geely, Volkswagen AG, Toyota Motor Corp and Ford Motor Co .

Baidu operates autonomous taxi service Go Robotaxi with safety drivers on board in Beijing, Changsha and bitcoincash electrum wallet Cangzhou, and plans to expand to 30 cities in three years.

It gained approval last week to test five cars in Beijing without safety drivers.

Its talks regarding manufacturing come after Didi Chuxing last month launched a purpose-built van for ride-hailing services with automaker BYD Co Ltd. Meanwhile tech giant Sony Corp in January unveiled an electric concept car with self-driving functions.

Building cars would represent a dramatic development in Baidu’s push to diversify income streams as growth plateaus in its core search business, where revenue grew just 2% last year.

How to claim and use Electrum BCH Wallet

How to claim and use Electrum Bitcoin Cash Wallet

You can use seed phrase or private key to claim BCC/BCH.

Install Electrum bch Wallet on a machine that does not have your Electrum wallet

Wait until the BCC hard fork has taken place, and a few BCC blocks
have been mined.

Move all your electrum bch electrum wallet wallet funds to a new electrum bch wallet. This will
move only your BTC, and not your BCC, because the BCC blockchain has
replay protection. Wait until the transaction is confirmed.

Enter the seed of your (now empty) old wallet or private keys in
Electron Cash. Since the BTC have been moved to a new wallet,
entering your old seed in Electron Cash will not put your BTC funds
at risk.

There’s a minor problem that occurs when electrum bch is started for the first time: it will follow the wrong chain of the fork initially.
The client is still completely usable, but it requires user action to select the electrum cash chain after first startup. Safety of your coins is in no way affected by this problem.
This will be corrected in future versions, but for now we offer this workaround (which is very easy to do)
What’s the problem?
When electrum cash wallet doesn’t find a local blockchain_headers file (which is the case on first start), it tries downloading it via http. We forgot to change that url so it still points to a file that contains the legacy chain headers. When that file is downloaded, electrum bitcoicash will disconnect from the BitcoinCash chain servers because they don’t match what the downloaded file says. It then switches to using legacy electrum servers and verifies the headers and now follows the legacy chain.
How to fix it?
Right after startup (or any time, really), go to the Network Window (it’s reachable from the Tools menu or the Network indicator lamp on the lower right). On the Overview Tab of that window is a server list. If a chain split is detected (which should be the case), the servers are grouped by a branch id. Select the correct branch (the one that has servers electrum-abc.criptolayer.net and electroncash.cascharia.com) by right-clicking on the correct branch id (that long number with the @ sign in it) and select “Follow This Branch” in the popup menu that opens.
ElectonCash will then follow the bitcoicash wallet electrum branch of the fork and you’re good to go!

Electric car sales soar and diesels plummet in boost for Boris Johnson

Sales of electric vehicles have more than doubled in the last year electrum bch while diesel purchases have plummeted by over half.

Analysis of official industry figures show 86,291 pure electric cars have been registered so far this year, bch electrum wallet up from 37,850 during 2019.

In another dramatic change, sales of plug-in hybrid vehicles eclipsed diesels for the first time last month. In November, 18,062 plug-ins were sold compared to 15,925 diesels, according to the RAC’s analysis of figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

The figures are a boost for the Prime Minister’s plan to ban sales of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030 and of plug-in hybrids from 2035.

But electric vehicles still account for just 0.3 per cent of the cars on Britain’s roads.

Sales website Auto Trader warns demand is five years behind what is needed for a 2030 ban to succeed with buyers put off by upfront costs and a lack of street charge points.  

High upfront costs and a lack of chargers on residential roads have been blamed for stagnating demand, with EVs still considered an unnecessary luxury by many households.

The bosses of BMW and Honda Europe are among senior industry leaders who have criticised the 2030 ban as poorly thought-through.

Buyers are being put off by concerns over EV range and a lack of on-street charge points.

A third of households in Britain have no off-street parking, meaning a large proportion of the population has no easy access to a charger.

Buyers have also been put off by costs.

Entry-level EVs are around £5,000 more expensive than equivalent petrol models, even with the Government’s £3,000 plug-in car grant taken into account.

However, the RAC said the latest EV sales figures are encouraging.

Rod Dennis, the motor group’s data insight spokesman, said: ‘We may well now be reaching a watershed moment when it comes to new car sales in the UK – taking the anomalous month of April aside when dealers were forced to shut because of the pandemic, November saw more plug-in cars registered than diesel cars.

‘The rise in demand for plug-in electrified vehicles appears to partly be taking place at petrol and diesel’s expense, with the latter as a result of concerns over harmful nitrogen dioxide emissions.

‘As we move beyond the pandemic, bch electrum wallet 2021 is set to be a critically important year when it comes to understanding the appetite drivers have for ‘going electric’.

With more electric cars coming onto the market, it will be interesting to see if this rise in sales will be sustained or whether the negative economic outlook has the unfortunate effect of quelling demand.’

Eyes on Norway to boost electric car sales

Norway has the way to boost electric car sales and Australia should follow its policy highway, a think tank argues.

The Australia Institute has released a paper looking at the policies Norway has used to give it the highest share of electric vehicle sales per capita in the world.

The Scandinavian country has an ambitious target of ending the sale of all new internal combustion engine vehicles by 2025.

Last year 42 per cent of new car sales were electric, while Australia’s rate was 0.6 per cent.

Norway’s policy incentives include reduced one-off registration tax, GST exemption, circulation tax waivers, reduced fees for bch electrum wallet toll roads and ferries, and access to bus lanes.

Norwegian Electric Vehicle Association head Christina Bu says Australia can do it with government support.

“It’s simply ridiculous that Australia, with an embarrassingly low level of electric vehicles, would tax them instead of incentivise them,” she said.

The Morrison government hasn’t released a policy to increase electric car sales despite promising one in February last year.

A consultation paper on the strategy has been flagged for release by the end of the year.

Meanwhile, Victoria and South Australia have ruffled the sector’s feathers by announcing electric vehicle charges to offset losses in fuel excise.

The Electric Vehicle Council says this is at odds with the states’ aims of achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

The council has released University of Queensland research showing the tax could reduce electric vehicle uptake by 50 per cent.

The study shows 90 per cent of cars on the roads must be electric by 2050 for zero emission targets to be viable.

Electric Vehicle Council chief Behyad Jafar compares the measure to replacing declining tobacco excise with a tax on nicotine patches.

“You’re either for an electric vehicle tax or you’re for a 2050 zero target,” he said.

“You cannot be for both.”
