  • New Models From Honda And Audi Will Consign Tesla And Its Superchargers To A Smaller Niche [View article]
    In case you didn't notice, there is a change coming. These "alternatives" are merely "stop-gap" products. They do serve a purpose, which is to keep the established auto-makers relevant long enough to adapt. If they cannot bridge the gap, they will perish. Tesla, on the other hand, is leading the charge. IMHO, not a real article, just an opinion piece.

  • Chevrolet Volt's Failure Foreshadows Tesla's Fate [View article]
    The Volt and the ELR are both Chevys.... There is no comparison. Even without putting on my Musketeer hat.

  • Dissecting Tesla's ZEV Mythology [View article]
    One thing that I think JP and others are forgetting is that Tesla may have a sweet deal going with Solar City as far as producing electricity from renewable resources. Additionally, those renewables may have been produced using the energy from the first round of renewables that were built. There is potentially an exponential rate of cleaning going on with the power needed to produce both solar panels and Teslas.

    This, as well as the ongoing cleaning of the grid is inexplicably omitted from ANY of JP's articles or comments. He consistently assumes static figures, or dismisses any cleaning as "inconsequential" due to the low current percentages. This is extremely misleading, and on purpose.

    Perception is reality. Once the misinformation is out there, it is almost impossible to correct. This is where JP shines. His FUD machine puts the "facts" out there and all of his followers forward and quote and duplicate these "facts" and so they become reality. However, this only works on the weak minded who blindly follow someone who uses big words and catchy insults...... The rest are sitting there watching the spin and misinformation campaign doing exactly what it is designed to do, with frustration.

    However, there is hope due to the fact that there is an irresistible wave of real facts that will sweep over and decimate the misinformation. One thing does hold true, even in today's corrupt and misinformation environment...... The truth is the truth....

  • Why Long-Range BEVs Are An Economic, Energy And Emissions Abomination [View article]
    @ froggey77 - My car reached speeds of 120 MPH, does that mean that if I hit anything now I will be dead? Just because the vehicle hit speeds of 140 doesn't mean the impact occurred at anything even over 10 MPH..... don't make assumptions, or twist facts to suit your opinions...

    So calculations based on 90s tech is still valid today? Even with the advancements in Regenerative braking, motor efficiencies and battery energy density improvements? Really John?

  • No voluntary Model S recall: CNBC [View news story]
    Keith, you are making an assumption that none of the other accidents involving Tesla Model Ss have resulted in a punctured battery pack.... There is absolutely no substantiation to that assumption..... You only hear about the ones that result in a vehicle fire.....

  • EVs, Solar Panels And Free Lunch Sophistries [View article]
    He is trying to expand his reality distortion field!

    I understand there is risk, but the "it is impossible so don't dare try" stance is irritating. That Elon Musk is somehow fleecing the world by using up all of the precious resources producing a more polluting product is comical to me....

    The BEV WILL get cleaner as electricity production gets cleaner, the ICE will not....

    One thing that I think a lot of "analysts" leave out of their equation when figuring greenhouse cost of solar and BEVs is that when you manufacture a PV cell utilizing electricity, it can then be deployed to create said electricity to manufacture additional cells and produce aluminum.... This is conveniently overlooked by those who argue against the proliferation of "green technologies" due to their increased "pollution" generation.

    JP, you ask for the data, and then promptly dismiss it with a wave of the hand? Change is happening, and in fact is always happening. Some of us welcome change and may be able to profit from it if we play our cards right. All I see nowadays from you JP, is a stubborn, dismissive man with an agenda. You fail to give anyone who does not share your views any credibility. Those who cannot see your "vision" are blasphemous.
