  • The One Variable That Will Determine Tesla's Future [View article]
    "The 24 kilowatt BMW i DC Fast Charger..."

    LOL Tesla offers a HPWC with 20 kilowatts for $750, you can have one in your home if you want. http://bit.ly/1iRy5xY

    The actual Tesla superchargers are 135 kilowatts. Frank links to another fail from BMW. Remember Musk's laughter when asked about the i3? This should throw him into hysterics.

  • Tesla Claims Are Out Of Sync With Reality [View article]
    "Unfortunately, in the above sited article from 2006, the "expert" author's analysis seems to only consider hydrogen production by electrolysis."

    Yes, the exact method most hydrogen advocates point to as sustainable. I guess you think counting on a non renewable fossil fuel source of hydrogen is the way forward.

  • Tesla: The Empty Threat Of Solid State Batteries [View article]
    "They why haven't people been lining up to buy pure electrics in favor of gas and diesel powered cars?"

    50,000+ Tesla owners and 200,000+ Nissan/Renault owners have done exactly that. In case you are unaware there is a waiting list for Tesla vehicles, otherwise known as people lining up to buy them.

    But you'll ignore hydrogen fuel cell experts who actually know what they are talking about: http://bit.ly/TVJ2mi

    Not the point of course. A 500+ mile range EV is more than enough, and can be done with double the density of Tesla's current pack. At that point a Tesla will have as much range or more than most ICE's. That means the original commenters claim that EV's need to rival the density of gasoline is completely false.

    50,000+ Tesla owners and 200,000+ Nissan/Renault owners would disagree.

    No too smart if you think Tesla is going to show you anything about the Model 3 at this point in time.

    Why, he knows they are more expensive and have almost no place to fill up. No testing needed.

    You would of course be completely wrong. 99% of charging takes place at home while you sleep, it really doesn't matter how long it takes since it will be ready for you in the morning. For the 1% or less of long distance travel the 20-30 minutes spent at a supercharger getting a free charge is not a hardship, since most people take the time to eat, walk around, use the bathroom, etc.

    Additionally because electric drive is so much more efficient than internal combustion engines batteries will never need to even approach the energy density of gasoline or diesel. Gasoline has a theoretical density of 12,000wh/kg, Tesla's battery is currently around 150wh/kg, yet a Tesla can go as far as my RAV4 right now. Double the energy density and you're looking at a 500+ mile EV.

    No, they use the most energy dense and lowest cost, which allows them to build the longest range EV. You should know this by now.

    That is completely false every time you or someone else says it. The fact is that Tesla has it's own in house battery research team.

    Actually there is a Model X, more than one. In fact there may also be a Model 3.
