    The Truth About Electric Cars Biggest Problem

    Could not have said this better. 2019 was a year where I really stepped back and maybe it was because my age turned the next decade marker but I really thought about the world I wanted my kids to grow up in. I want them to be able to breath clean air, have abundant amounts of food available...

    Mustang Mach E is a Gamechanger - Here is Why (vs TESLA)

    Thanks @Newbie ! Reading some of the responses (ignoring the uneducated hate), are some valid counterpoints, but I tire quickly of people who don't like something (say, the Mach E) just because it can't compete "feature for feature" against another car (say, the Model Y). I mean, imagine a...

    PRNDL on the prototype

    Thanks! That actually really makes sense, thank you for that! I can definitely see how 1-pedal then is such a boon. I drive using engine braking heavily now, so I can imagine if it were linear with no lurch wow!

    PRNDL on the prototype

    So, I have a manual transmission car right now as a daily driver. Never driven an EV, never experienced 1-pedal driving. But, it sounds from your descriptions it is exactly like a manual transmission car when you let off the gas, the engine braking kicks in. Although, perhaps the EV 1-pedal...

    The Truth About Electric Cars Biggest Problem

    Jason over at Engineering Explained has banged another one out with The Truth About Electric Cars Biggest Problem where he revisits an earlier video where he talked about why the ICE will not anytime soon disappear. This time, he goes a bit more in-depth in comparing the energy from batteries...

    Mach-E will have OTA Updates

    Here is another gem (well, a gem for tech nerds like me clamoring for any nugget of information on the Mach E tech). We get an apparent glimpse into the front display working. Starting at about 3:23 - 3:25 appears to be uncut A-roll. As the camera operator walks closer and pans into the...

    Mach-E will have OTA Updates

    To add confusion to the never-ending "how much range will it really have" discussions all over this forum, I thought it would be fun to dissect this video for "range glamour shots". 255 Km (158 miles) / 56% battery remaining = 282 Miles (453 Km) total range 0 Km / no battery remaining...

    LG Chem battery shortage hindering Jaguar

    Definitely agree since auto manufacturers likely build using "just in time manufacturing" this throws all kinds of monkey wrenches into the business, but with that said, To convert this into a hypothetical situation with Ford, let us run the numbers. Ford says they aim to product 50,000...

    The TFLNow boys with the Mach-E

    Yeah. It does help to know, though the person Manning the camera and the guy in the grey shirt are from TFL Truck. Watch their vids on trucks and you'll see they are soft on anything not powerful enough to pull a horse trailer and not roomy enough to hold 4 six foot tall construction dudes...

    The TFLNow boys with the Mach-E

    If you watch the part of the video after they exit the car, you'll see AWD badges on the side and rear of the car, so I do believe.it is AWD.

    The TFLNow boys with the Mach-E

    What is most interesting about the video to me is that, at approximately the 3:24 mark they point the camera at, and talk about the display in front of the driver specifically the remaining range and battery. The remaining range is 402 KM and the remaining battery is 93%. Remaining Range 400 KM...

    ICE are far from "dead"...... biggest problems EV problems today

    You forgot one that, in fact, bit me earlier this week. Filling up at the gas station, only to have the stupid nozzle burp back at you and splash you full of gas on the way to work causing you to have to double-back home, take a full shower, change, and then get back on the road to work...

    New ICE vehicles to be banned in the UK from 2035

    So, I've read here and there online (we all know everything on the internet is true) that "Big Oil" is heavily pushing plastics and has a strategic goal to plasticize more materials into our lives. Think, building materials, etc. In sort of a weird conclusion, I have personally come to believe...

    Electrify America Installs 400 Charging Stations, Twice As Fast As Tesla Supercharger Rollout

    Sure, but they didn't start with 150KW chargers, though. They also only had to support "their" cars, not "everybody's" cars. I'll reference the same article mentioned by @timbop above where they discuss having to test with literally every single vendor. They hint, but don't outright say, that...
