Alternative Fuels & Propulsion RANDOM

Recommended Posts

Seems the reports of only early this year and late last year that battery price per kW would be $187 per kW by 2025 are way off after massive advancements have the battery industry heading to $87 per kW battery pack cost by 2025.

Since it's all future stuff, have to couch it in non-definite terms. Reality is complex.

Pretty boring stuff yet you keep coming back to comment. What’s that they about the definition of the word “insanity”? 
 

“Brainchild”? From what I recall, it was more like complaining like a ten year old with a skinned knee because you though it was not so “random” for someone to talk about something you had no interest in. 
 

Maybe it’s just the Trollus Operatus.

Gotta love that Sema is embracing EV's so well. GM it seems is going to offer electric power train crate motors that run on 800 Volt systems. One truck that used a dual setup for AWD was the E-10 Hot Rod truck. https://www.greencarreports.com/news/1125874_chevy-e-10-electric-hot-rod-truck-concept-has-a-double-shot-of-bolt-ev

450 horsepower, a 0-60 time in the 5.0-second range, and a quarter-mile time of approximately 13 seconds - LOVELY TRUCK

Chevrolets E-10 Concept

2020 Kia Iqonic EV got a boost to 38 kWh battery pack with an EPA rating of 170 miles.

Seems Jalopnik was able to get pics of the almost naked Mach E and I have to say the pic from the Mach E Forum is pretty spot on. Check it out: https://jalopnik.com/this-is-the-ford-mustang-inspired-suv-caught-almost-tot-1839701061

At least it looks like a normal CUV.  

Will it be a success?  Who knows?   Tesla it seems are the only EVs that seem to resonate with the majority of the people.  EV and non EV people. 

Non EV people it seems are not exactly lit up on fire with adopting and adapting to EVs just yet.

Maybe this Mach-E well get non-EV people to look at EVs... because Im sure EV people will not look at this ride.  The Tesla Model Y is their God send.

Tesla products are sooooo Ugly to me and look dated. They have no style or Mojo, I honestly do not get what people think is so great about tesla other than they pushed the awesome EV technology.

Interior is like being a minimalist, dead, lacks style, warmth or anything that says I am riding in a quality classy auto.

I take the Jag iPace over a tesla or even an MB EQC over the Tesla. I honestly an very excited for the Rivian auto's and the Ford F150 over Tesla's truck. I suspect it will be just another geriatric blah EV.

Looks are subjective.

But because Tesla sells the amount they sell, their styling DOES resonate with the people. And THAT would be WORLDWIDE...

As we know, for the most part, ugly cars do not sell. Tesla cars sell well.  WORLDWIDE over Tesla cars are the most sold EVs. Ugly or not, THAT by definition  makes Tesla style have Tesla mojo.    In other words, Tesla has its own style and people gravitate towards it.   And Tesla having its own style doing things its own way having its own mojo is a very good thing when it comes to BRANDING...

Kleenex, Vaseline, Coke, Scotch Tape, Fridgidaire, Crock-Pot, Jet-Ski, Bubble Wrap, Google, Xerox, Amazon...   The Tesla brand is fast becoming that kind of brand...if it aint already there...

And the Model 3's  minimalist approach to its interior (and that is how the Tesla Model S' interior will be too on its next refresh that will be soon enough)  is well received by many that buy the Tesla 3. In fact, its a selling point. And a very successful selling point at that.  You and I dont like it. But these EV peeps seem to adore it.  

Plus, you cant argue, Tesla has a very very good product to sale you.  It aint all marketing bullshyte and fad of the day internet sensation...  The EV technology that Tesla sells you is quite possibly the best there is out there...

Plus its charging network that helps with the branding...

I know you were NOT the one chastising me for dissing Ferrari VS Ford movie by saying that I dont want to see bullshyte American flag waving nonsense in the movie... but Ill tell you one thing, and others that hate on Tesla...

AND ILL DO THE AMERICAN FLAG WAVING HERE. WHICH IS RIGHTFULLY DESERVED IN THIS CASE!!!   

TESLA IS AMERICAN!!!   AN AMERICAN CAR COMPANY THAT IS COVETED ALL AROUND THE WORLD. BE PHOQUING PROUD!!!  WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER YOU FOLK???!!!  THESE ARE THE TIMES WHEN YOU SAY:  AMERICA!  PHOQUE YEAH!!!

Call me when Tesla outsells Toyota, Honda and/or Hyundai/KIA.  Then Tesla will be an American icon.

Not when only EV sales are concerned.

Ill give you the over all vehicle sales argument in the market place.   But even you got to admit, amongst all EV cars/models/brands out there, Tesla is the one that is king of the jungle.

Seems Police are finally taking a heavy hand to IDIOTS who ICE electric charging stalls.

German Translation via Bing:

Our #A11 also takes care of heavyweights:
If the big blue had actually tapped the charging station, the electricity would probably have failed in the surrounding households. 

Gonna suck for this Ford truck owner when they return to find their truck gone to the impound yard. Nice Raptor in the impound cage where they belong.

Imagine all the ICE owners who would be pissed if EV's decided to park in front of gas station pumps not allowing people with empty tanks to fill up. 🙄

Also out is the latest G20 review for which counteries are leading in addressing climate change:

Market share of EVs in new car sales, the report, which drew its data from the International Energy Agency, named the top 5 as:

  • China: 4.48%
  • US: 2.45%
  • Canada: 2.32%
  • South Korea: 2.21%
  • France: 2.15%

Sadly it seems in Germany vandals are setting Tesla auto's on Fire. Go figure. 🙄\

Seems while he had sentry mode on, was too cheap to buy a USB thumb drive to record the actual video.
