Whiner, he couldnt have lost more than $15 to 20k, car is still almost new. Trade it in and get the D and move on with life. Or buy the R8 EV, we dont need whiney Tesla owners.
Does supercharging, almost exclusively, as opposed to slower charging at home, etc affect the long term viability of batteries?
When asked the question, Tesla simply stated that it doesnt affect warranty. But if you were planning on keeping a car long term, would you limit supercharging to when you needed it on trips?
I know EV batteries degrade with time and lose capacity, I'm just curious how much charging quickly affects batteries over the years?
Check insideevs for what Audi is up to with EV's.
R8, Q7, Avant, A4, etc. Sounds like they are serious wannabe Tesla competitors, not that anyone can match Tesla.
VW is probably the biggest concern in regards to Gen3 competition.
Maybe, but there is already competition well established in that arena,
I think Tesla should stick with EV cars.
There may someday be other EV's, but none that will be able to compete with Tesla.
Hell yeah. I dont worry about the two dozen other EV manufacturers, or the unsold cars. Tesla has a great car and Musk.
Elon is a smart guy, but he is wrong not embracing fuel cells.
Toyota doesnt make a whole lot of mistakes.
When you have EV's with ranges of over 200 miles, how can you say something like that?
Yes, the more power you use the less the range is, but the torque characteristics of electric motors is one thing that makes EV's possible. It eliminates the need for complicated transmissions, etc.
