    In the past they used UQM in some test vehicles, just like GM, but no one knows who is making the i3, and i8 motors.

  • Tues evening on various Showtime channels there is a story about E racing - should be very interesting
    I doubt that it is at all related to UQM, but interesting
    IF we see any UQM stuff inside...........................................

    Audi is very secretive about models prior to the release, but, at the last UQM CC the CEO was ask about progress with Audi. He said something to the effect that the UQM team had just been in Germany a week or two before the CC, and everything was progressing well. FWIW

    Another short news story for Audi

    IF the posters on this board call you names and demean your character, my best guess is that they are short UQM. I can wait longer than Audi's time frame. AND, when the first of these plug in hybrids is on the showroom floor (supposed to arrive this summer) they will all be gone, and I will still be holding UQM.

  • The following was on yahoo news yesterday:

    Despite years of researching any number of standard ICE alternatives, it's becoming clear that different automakers are starting to throw their weight behind their advanced-powertrain technologies of choice. For instance, Toyota is gearing up for its first production hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle next year. Nissan continues to preach the gospel of the battery-electric engine. For Audi, plug-in hybrids appear to be the way to go.

    The German automaker plans to have a plug-in hybrid version of every one of its models by the end of the decade, UK's Autocar reports, citing comments Audi research and development head Ulrich Hackenberg made at a recent launch event for the A3 Sportback E-Tron. Hackenberg spelled out two variants of the powertrain, including one front-wheel drive version that pairs an electric motor with a 1.4-liter gas engine (this is the version used in the A3), and another to be used for four-wheel-drive vehicles in which an electric motor drives the rear wheels. We couldn't get more information from Audi representatives here on the A3 Sportback E-Tron launch ourselves, and Audi spokeswoman Kelsey Johnson said in an e-mail to AutoblogGreen that the company wasn't commenting further on its plans for plug-in hybrid powertrains in more models.

    Audi has started pre-sales of the A3 Sportback E-Tron in Germany, pricing the car at about $51,000 with deliveries to start sometime this winter. The vehicle puts out 204 horsepower and can go as far as 31 miles on electric power alone. An exact date has not been set for importing that plug-in to the US, but it will happen some time next year.

    Static - check out an Audi news story from yesterday, that I have tried to post here twice, but has been blocked by the censors, and see if you can direct UQM followers to the story.

    I posted an article regarding Audi R8 E-tron and plug in hybrids for the entire Audi line-up which Yahoo didn't think you should read, so you need to search for it - I found 3 articles that were dated 7/3/14

    UQM added to the Russell Microcap Index

    If you are correct, that UQM was added to the Russell Microcap Index on 7/11/05, UQM closed that day at $3.05, and rose to $4.75 on 9/28/05 (about 3 months later) for a gain of about 50%.
    It rose to $6.38 on 5/9/06 - a gain of about 100% within a year of your date.
    BUT, I would point out that that was a long time ago, and I am not aware of the news flow, or the dates that the Q was added or taken out of the index, so I used your date.
    As for name calling, it's not my style - I'm retired, and fairly laid back kind of guy. Just found news related to UQM and thought I should share it. If you don't like what I post, put me on ignore.

  • From Transport Topics on Friday June 27, 2014
    The California Air Resources Board said it has approved $85 million for advanced-technology, heavy-duty truck projects to help improve the state’s air quality.

    CARB said it plans on spending $10 million to $15 million to purchase heavy-duty hybrid and electric vehicles, such as delivery trucks, and about $25 million for large-scale pilot projects to demonstrate zero-emission technology in the freight sector.

    CARB said it will spend $50 million for zero-emission drayage trucks serving ports and advanced-technology freight demonstration projects.

    The funding is part of CARB’s $222 million budget for 2014-2015, including $200 million from the state’s share of auction proceeds from its cap-and-trade program for low-carbon transportation projects.




    The Truck Loan Assistance Program will receive $10 million for continued funding to provide credit assurance so small fleets can access loans for trucks with clean-diesel technologies.

  • Press Statement by David Reichmuth, Senior Engineer in the Clean Vehicles Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists

    SACRAMENTO (June 26, 2014)-The California Air Resources Board (CARB) today approved a funding plan to encourage the continued deployment of clean vehicles over the next year that will provide consumers with more low-carbon transportation choices and help spread the use of clean technologies in disadvantaged communities.

    The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) continues to support the state's efforts to advance the production and deployment of zero- and near-zero emission cars, trucks, and buses that will drive down costs and spur adoption of clean transportation by businesses and individuals.

    California's 2014-15 budget provides $200 million from cap-and-trade auction proceeds to CARB to support low-carbon transportation projects that reduce global warming emissions.

    CARB's approved funding plan combines these low-carbon transportation investments with investments from its Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP), which supports the development and commercialization of advanced technologies necessary to meet California's air quality and climate goals.

    Under the plan, $130 million will be allocated to light-duty vehicle pilot and incentive projects, most of which will support rebates to consumers who purchase or lease plug-in and fuel cell electric passenger cars and trucks. The Clean Vehicle Rebate Project will provide purchase or lease incentives of $2,500 for battery-electric vehicles and $1,500 for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. In addition, buyers of fuel-cell electric vehicles will be eligible for $5,000 rebates to support adoption of the fast-fueling zero emission vehicles.

    The plan allocates an additional $85 million to reduce emissions from heavy-duty vehicles and freight movement. These funds will support purchase incentives for heavy-duty hybrid and electric trucks, as well as pilot demonstration programs for electric trucks,

  • On Friday June 27, 2014 at the close, UQM was added to the Russell Microcap Index (not an S&P index as I thought based on early press reports about the S&P)
    I think that UQM was in that index several years ago and then later removed after the CODA bankruptcy.
    This is good news, which should add support to the Q in coming months as investment managers add UQM shares to balance with this index.

    S&P rebalance occurred at the close on Friday 6/27

    Don't have a stick - just happy that the high volume after hours trading was in out favor. Still a lot of shorts in this stock, and they may decide that the upside risk is greater than the downside gain.
    IF they start to cover, that could cause a nice move upward. The opening hour on Monday could be very interesting.

    Note that I wrote to AN S&P index - NOT THE S&P (500) because I have no such knowledge - BUT someone bought 104,400 shares after the close Friday at the high of the day. Other times, there have been huge volume to the downside when UQM was taken out of an index. We will have to wait to see which index the Q was added to in the coming days as it is reported.

  • Friday was a higher volume day, but after the close 104,400 shares were traded which took the volume to 551K shares and the close to the high of the day. This indicates that UQM is being added to an S&P index which will provide support over the coming months, and therefore, when contracts materialize the bounce will be much stronger than it would have been in the past.
    This is very good news for longs, and could have a significant impact on the share price in the coming weeks.
