Re: Tesla Model 3

A blanket statement saying that 200kwh in a single car battery is bad for the environment has no meaning as we don't know the production process of said future battery. If it's made at a solar power gigafactory than it might be 100% environmentaly friendly. How many solar powered Gigafactories are ...

Re: Biomass to Fuel?

I would add ocean going shipping to the list of liquid fuel dependant systems.
Current and forseeable battery systems cannot provide the energy density required for that either.

Re: Tesla Model 3 battery teardown!

The battery is not exactly anything new ..is it ? Its cells, the configuration, construction, capacity, etc etc have all been discussed before. In that video, they did not seem to understand it too well anyway, refering to "whiskers" or contactors when we know they are the fusible links. And certain...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

You are all missing the point. Shure there are many facinating properties of our atmoshpheric gas's, IR adsorbtion being one (but what about re-radiation ?) ..but none of these allow for the multiple other factors..clouds, thermals etc...let alone for the sheer scale of a planetary system, so how ca...

Gawd...I love Tesla but who would sit here listening to 4 guys sitting and talking for over an hour.

Anywho, I'm hoping in the near future to pre-order my model 3.
If you are considering buying one.....you ought to listen to those "4 guys" ,start to finish.

I don't think the data backs up that statement. Tesla now has the cheapest to manufacture battery in the EV world.

Re: Tesla Model 3

They also have a huge edge in the cost of battery manufacturing where as the others have to outsource adding a huge cost. True, the gigafactory is their ace card at the moment. I think they will need to keep innovating or die - keep pushing the tech. Performance they have pretty much nailed, but ne...
