FCEV “well-to-wheel” efficiency is one third that of BEV.
I guess they drew their exhaust system inspiration from the 1990’s TVR Griffith.
The CPO warranty on my VW e-golf is very good. Same as the ICE cars. Plus the add-on of 8 years/100k miles for the entire high voltage system incl. battery. It was super cheap to buy off lease at 3 years old with low miles, and range seems to show no degradation from what it should have been when new. Basically… Read more
The long available in the US Audi A3 Sportback e-Tron is the same car underneath as the Golf GTE. Albeit wrapped up in a posher dress and lingerie, but essentially the same car.
Based on the theory, doubling the power will result in an approximate 25% increase in top speed. So theoretically a top speed of around 275mph using full power. Reality needs to be dialed back from that though as there’s a ton of other things going on. So it’d be reasonable to expect a 250mph average speed and… Read more
Idiotic, cringeworthy piece capitalizing on current events. Hang your head in shame for writing such cynical race sycophancy BS. Look back at this post in 5 years time to realize it.
We’re gonna see a few Kodak esque failures in the oil industry over the coming decades. Not sure any of them have the balls to do it, but they need to now actively move away from oil and into other energy industries. Not the current dalliances they have around alternative energy, a full blown change to alternative… Read more
For now the “well-to-wheel” efficiency is nowhere even close for FCV vs BEV. This is the metric that counts.
But why would anyone need to charge it that quickly at home? Being able to add 200 or so miles range in 8-12 hrs is more than enough for home charging; especially given the vast majority of people drive much less than 100 miles each day. So of course its then easy to keep it topped up to 100% each night in case you’re… Read more
Yea, you need to chill out. You’ve missed the point. It’s not a timex watch substitute. It’s a piece of jewelry that happens to tell the time and has a neat little model of a W16 engine with turbos inside it. $300k is not expensive at all in the world of high end jewelry, or watches. If you want to get yourself rea… Read more
MTFU and give them a pat on the back for a job well done. The faux outrage, virtue signaling, and BS sycophancy in this article is embarrassing.
So the average person is buying a $38k vehicle, but is actually paying $44k for it? Yeaahhh....that’s gonna be a problem.
