  • Analysis: That's BMW coming on in Tesla's rear-view mirror [View news story]
    @ fgrindle
    BMW Europe quotes 160km (100 miles) range, some sources say even 170km. 56 miles range and 100 miles quote equates to 56%. But its true, with the range extender its all different. But then it is no more an EV it is then a complex Hybrid with a noisy engine and more service costs.

  • Analysis: That's BMW coming on in Tesla's rear-view mirror [View news story]
    The German magazin "Bild" made a Test with the BMW i3 in February. The range without built in range extender was almost 90km (56 miles)! This is approximateliy 50% loss in range in cold weather. Tesla Model S looses at equal conditions approximately 20%.

  • Tesla Motors settles back on adapter announcement [View news story]
    They are not recalling cars, they are not even recalling chargers, they are sending new charging adapters with a thermal fuse in it to prevent overheating caused by bad electrical house installations. It is the wall socket generating the heat due to weak conductors in the house installation.
