ELECTRIC VEHICLES & My Tesla Model 3 Review

I FINALLY bought my first Electric Vehicle (EV) and it happens to be a Tesla Model 3! So, let’s look at EV cars in general and see if this Tesla thing is any good.

So right now is the time to get a a new electric car.

  • Actually, the trees and plants that feed the planet NEED carbon dioxide to, ah...feed the planet. Carbon Dioxide as a "pollutant" is a communist lie. "Carbon footprints" are a lie. Put carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, so plants can LIVE and FEED THE PLANET. Perhaps you could demonstrate how carbon dioxide somehow traps infrared radiation and refuses to radiate it back into space, as any molecule that absorbs a photon will re-radiate that photon in a random direction, carbon dioxide molecules included? And for which there is no exception? Smart guy of science? Or we just gonna just "mouthpiece for the commie green movement" ? Just asking honest questions based on actual science. I mean...this is the place for that, right?

  • When i was much younger i wanted to put 4 dynamo's on a car to use it to charge batteries and also power an electric motor. It's a very crude method of what Elon did. The difference between us is that he put his shit on paper and got the money to build and experiment while i was told i was silly and forgot about it. What i take away from this: Even if it's silly put your idea's on paper and attempt everything. 99 failed tests will result in 1 successful test resulting in BILLIONS OF MONEIES!

  • But I have question isn't electric vehicle also not that good for the environment? Because for electricity we need coal and we need to burn it. Coal is limited. I know that it doesnt fart co2 gas etc but i dont think that it is the best.

    Aron Eungwoo KlöppingAron Eungwoo KlöppingPäivä sitten
    • It's still a lot better than gas cars. And most governments are moving to make their energy renewable so coal won't be used anymore. Yeah, it's not the best but it's the best option besides a bicycle or public transport.

Watch it its funny. I dont drive a car or own one for sake of argument im dutch and only use bikes.

    • If you're talking about when it's at a red light then a regular gas car still keeps the engine running which is much worse than the small amount of energy the electric car uses

  • I think the best is the future with hydrogen cars, because they have the same production costs as a classic car and when burned it produces only water (steam) and electric cars have one major problem, batteries. There are many cases of self-ignition or explosion of the battery, then sr such a fire can easily be extinguished for a week and the batteries still have a great burden on nature during disposal.

  • The reason why it requires you to step on the gas and touch the steering wheel is probably not a technology limit. It's probably to manage legal liability. Because you are still maintaining control over the vehicle, you are liable if the car gets in an accident. If the car drove completely on its own, then the manufacturer could be liable. This is the same reason why cars with automatic parking still require you to hit the gas and break manually.

  • Self driving technology right now doesn't make much sense for me, unless you have a city full of self driving cars it's not that effective nor safe to use along human operated vehicules. Or maybe its just my poor ass that can't see myself paying the "cheapest" and then the insurrance of such an expensive car in my country (probably would pay more monthly for the inssurance than the car). Now, if the self driving tech is used to help or improve human reaction times and prevent irresponsible or distracted drivers from mesing with other people day, then that's where I see its value. For now I'll stay with my gasoline car but I'm really looking at hybrids (fully electric cars are still too espensive in my country, like really prohibitively expensive)

  • molten salt breeder reactors and carbon capture can have a closed loop for liquid fuel, making dye-methyle ether out of carbon and hydrogen in the air. with a high temp reactor(550~700+ depending on salt and vessel materials) direct thermal use for chemical reactions saves wasted energy of making electricity in the first place IE, fuck batteries.. electric cars have been playthings for the afluent for over 100 years.. they are ridiculous as preformance vechicles but a bad macro move.. whos dealing with the dead cells once you get close to 30 or 40% EV's, the subsidys should not be doctrine..

  • The down side to reducing charge current is in preconditioning. When your car warms up while on your home charger, it is doing so without exceeding the set current limit. In my experience this means that most of your preconditioning is done using the battery. Maybe that’s not a big deal to some people but in winter months it can drain a fair percentage of your battery rite at the beginning of the day. I do agree with your point about loading the grid though. This needs to be considered but can be managed by setting your charge time late at night (at least until EV’s become very popular). Also a charge rate of 32 amps at 240 volts is still a trickle charge when you consider that it’s being divided over about 3,000 cells. That’s only about 2.5 wats per cell. Only about 700mA across each cell. That’s a really slow charge for the 5 amp-hour cells in a model 3. Glad to see you bought a model 3! It’s a great car. I drive the same model 3 SR+.

  • if everyone got an EV it wouldnt be sustainable so more power plants would need to be built to supply the electricity, so the fossil fuels that wouldnt be burned in cars would be burned at power plants, having to convert energy more times and therefore making it less efficient. EVs are a scam. If you want to be a real ecologist drive your grandpa's car till the wheels fall off.

    Dat BoiiDat Boii3 päivää sitten
  • Any idea on how long it will take to be more efficient? Will the battery last that long or after the point that it is better will it die and need to be replaced there for increasing the carbon footprint again?
