Like I said, no engineer is going to leave that option on the table. And no manufacturer is going to "give away" potential. Not in the automotive market.SquidBonez wrote: ↑Aug 14 2019 3:37pm
Battery range, heat, and durability is the answer. A lot of motors can take way more power than what they're supplied assuming they can be cooled. Plus massive discharges hurts battery life expectancy. Just as ICE cars are tuned for a balance of performance and longevity, so are EVs. And that's why reflashes are so popular with ICE cars, as they can bring more power out of the engine with nothing but software (at the expensive of engine life).
Tesla already has ludicrous mode and that's their own upgrade to the insane mode. I'm not sure why the exact same thing isn't going to happen in the future?
I think it's also safe to assume that any flashing the company doesn't authorize will void the warranty. That's going to put a damper on things me thinks.
So I'm just not seeing it. Not unless the feds come in and start to dictate how many peak watts a sedan can have, or limit 0-60 times or something. Otherwise every EV should come with multiple modes like cruising, sport,race, ludicrous, launch, battery saver, motor life, thug life, hey baby, beginner driver, grandma, grandpa, Sunday, Monday etc. right from the factory.
