first_img(ICC) – Left-arm spinner Anukul Roy took four for 20 and Shubman Gill scored an unbeaten 90 to help India fashion a 10-wicket victory over Zimbabwe as the ICC U-19 World cup continued in New Zealand.In other matches, opener Nathan McSweeney slammed 156 and fast bowler Jason Ralston produced a record haul of seven for 15 as Australia thumped Papua New Guinea by 311 runs.Both former champions progressed to the Super League quarterfinals from Group B on the seventh day of tournament.Also joining in the Super League quarterfinals were former champions Pakistan who defeated Sri Lanka by three wickets in a Group D match.Pakistan will now wait for the outcome of the Afghanistan versus Ireland match on Saturday in Whangarei to find out if they will top the group or finish runners-up.The three sides have now joined Afghanistan, England, New Zealand and South Africa, while the England and Canada match on Saturday will decide if Bangladesh also goes through to the Super League quarterfinals, which will start on Monday, 22 January.Roy, who had finished with five wickets in the previous match against PNG, bowled an immaculate line and length as India dismissed the opposition for only 154 and got to the target in quick time with openers Shubman Gill and Aveet Desai returning unbeaten on 90 and 56, respectively.The three-time champions finished with three wins, including a 100-run victory over Australia earlier in the league, which proved decisive in the final standings.For Australia, who finished behind India in the group stage, Ralston ripped through the PNG batting, his seven for 15 the best-ever to date in the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup and second best at the U19 level. His effort came at the back of another remarkable effort, when opener Nathan McSweeney clobbered a punishing 156 to help post a huge 370 for eight.Scores in brief:Group BAustralia beat PNG by 311 runs, Lincoln 3, ChristchurchAustralia 370-8, 50 overs (Nathan McSweeney 156, Jason Sangha 88, Param Uppal 61; James Tau 2-42, Leke Morea 2-59, Sema Kamea 2-63, Daure Aiga 2-89)PNG 59 all out, 24.5 overs (Jason Ralston 7-15)Player of the match:  Nathan McSweeney (Australia)India beat Zimbabwe by 10 wickets, Bay Oval, TaurangaZimbabwe 154 all out, 48.1 overs (Milton Shumba 36, Liam Roche 31, Wesley Madhevere 30; Anjukul Roy 4-20, Arshdeep Singh 2-10, Abhishek Sharma 2-22).India 155 for no loss, 21.4 overs (Shubman Gill 90 not out, Aveet Desai 56 not out)Player of the match: Shubman GillGroup DPakistan beat Sri Lanka by three wickets, Cobham Oval, WhangareiSri Lanka 188 all out, 48.2 overs (Jehan Daniel 53, Ashen Bandara 37; Suleman Shafqat 3-29, Shaheen Afridi 2-41)Pakistan 190-7, 43.3 overs (Ali Zaryab Asif 59, Mohammad Zaid Alam 28; Thisara Rashmika 3-47)Player of the match: Ali Zaryab AsifSaturday’s fixtures:Kenya v Windies, Lincoln 3, Christchurch (Group A)New Zealand v South Africa, Bay Oval, Tauranga (Group A)Canada v England, John Davies Oval, Queenstown (Group C)Afghanistan v Ireland, Cobham Oval, Whangarei (Group D)last_img read more

Fast Charging Comparison Audi etron Mercedes EQC Jaguar IPACE

first_img Fastned Temporarily Shuts Down 175 kW Chargers With Liquid Cooled Cables Audi E-Tron Electric SUV Charges At Sustained 150-kW Rate Audi sets the bar for fast charging at 150 kW and there is no contenderThe three latest premium all-electric SUVs/crossovers – Jaguar I-PACE, Audi e-tron (sales to begin imminently) and Mercedes-Benz EQC (technically pre-production version) showed interesting differences at the 175 kW fast charger tests performed by Fastned.The results below could be very important for those who will often take long journeys – we would not be surprised by a difference of half hour between charging to 80%. Sadly, we don’t have data for Tesla Model X, because its full potential at Superchargers is constrained at Fastned’s station by the CHAdeMO adapters to just 50 kW. We will probably not get any new data for new models in quite some time as the 175 kW units were temporarily shut down.More fast charging news Mercedes-Benz EQC – 80 kWh battery, peak at around 110 kW (up to 1.4C)The upcoming Mercedes-Benz EQC fits between the e-tron and I-PACE with 110 kW of peak charging power, but as you can see, the charging power decreases already at 40% state-of-charge.“The charge speed is up to 110 kW at our 175 kW fast chargers and up to 50 kW at our other chargers. In the charge curve below you can see the charge speed at both chargers. On average the EQC charges 100 km in 15 – 30 minutes. At a 175 kW charger the charge speed will slowly drop as of 40%. At a 50 kW charger this happens as of 90%.” Audi e-tron – 95 kWh battery, peak at around 150 kW (up to 1.6C)First of all, the e-tron is so far in a class all its own because not only does it achieve the highest level of 150 kW, but also sustains the peak level over a wide state-of-charge window.Together with 11 kW and 22 kW (optional) on-board three-phase chargers, the e-tron is currently #1 in terms of charging options.“The charge speed is up to 150 kW at our 175 kW fast chargers and up to 50 kW at our other chargers. In the charge curve below you can see the charge speed at both chargers. On average the e-tron charges 100 km in 10 – 30 minutes. At a 175 kW charger the charge speed will slowly drop as of 80%. At a 50 kW charger this happens only at 98%.” Hyundai KONA Electric Charges At Up To 72 kW Source: Electric Vehicle News Jaguar I-PACE – 90 kWh battery, peak at around 85 kW (up to 0.95C)The Jaguar I-PACE, on the other hand, dropped the ball a little bit with 85 kW max, but maybe it will improve with some updates or next model year.The issue is also with quickly decreasing power from around 50% SOC.“The charge speed is up to 85 kW at our 175 kW fast chargers and 50 kW at our other chargers. In the charge curve below you can see the charge speed of the I-PACE at both chargers. On average the I-PACE charges 100 km in 15 – 30 minutes. At a 175 kW charger the charge speed will slowly drop as of 50%. At a 50 kW charger this happens as of 80%.We understood that the I-PACE may receive a software update in Q1 2019 to enable fast charging up to 100 kW. Please check with your Jaguar dealer for more information.”At 100 kW, the I-PACE charging rate will be up to 1.1C, still behind the EQC.Source: Fastned Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on January 27, 2019Categories Electric Vehicle Newslast_img read more
