    Tesla to get access to $7,000 tax credit on 400,000 more electric cars in the US with new incentive reform

    As the competition grows, Tesla could lose its leadership. They have to lower prices and build more service shops, since their service coverage is scarce (there is none here in Puerto Rico). I know that Ford still has plenty of tax credit available for Mach-E buyers, but only good for those who...

    Tesla to get access to $7,000 tax credit on 400,000 more electric cars in the US with new incentive reform

    I agree that the Feds are planning a new incentive for EVs and even better as a sales rebate instead of a tax rebate, so everyone can qualify. But I wish to know if that incentive applies for all U.S territories so I can qualify locally. And I strongly recommend limiting that incentive only to...

    I got my 2nd shot of Moderna today

    I received my first Moderna vaccine shot last week Feb 9th, so my second shot is set for March 9th. The Puerto Rican National Guard is giving the shots to the majority here, including anyone over 65 years old. The Guard has a excellent control and discipline over the distribution, and one just...

    Rumor: Mini-Mustang-Mach-E will arrive for European market in 2023

    Ford must bring this to all of America to compete against all the foreign EVs and add it to one of its local assembly plant. There are milions of potential customers who will buy a small EV, as Hyundai and Kia has presently proven with its models.

    How many started with Toyota Prius followed by Nissan Leaf followed by Chevy Bolt followed by Mustang Mach E?

    My first electrified car is my present 2014 Fusion Hybrid ( I never liked the Prius or any foreign hybrid). There are few BEVs available here, and only BMW i3 and Nissan Leaf were the first offers ( I don't like any foreign EV). In 2015 one of the GM dealers began sellling the second generation...

    12V battery (LVB) maintenance chargers

    That device is not needed for electrics and hybrids with DC to DC converters on board. Just start up the vehicle once a week, and as long as your HV battery has a charge, that will tune up your 12V battery. And if you are worried about the cold winter, move south to the tropics or the Caribbean...

    Engineering Explained: If Gas Cars Are Banned, Can The Grid Handle Electric Cars?

    Present utilities have surplus energy production, especially at night, because homes have more efficient appliances and illumination. This is when the majority of EV owners can charge from the home grid, and those same utilities can even give better rates if you ask. As for returning your...

    Engineering Explained: If Gas Cars Are Banned, Can The Grid Handle Electric Cars?

    Jason doesn't use correct engineering notation when explaining energy numbers. One trillon kWh is better explained as one quadrillion Wh, or 10^12 Wh. Even better is using the correct energy measurement of energy as "joules". One joule (J) is one watt second. A kWh is 3.6 MJ ( 3.6 x 10^6 J)...

    New Commercials: MACH-E vs Gravity, Lightning, Rocket Science, Pit Crew, DNA

    Lightning is the strongest form of Direct Current. Ben Franklin was expermenting with it since he correctly deducted that the Leyden jars (the first capacitors) held a charge similar to lightning, so he developed the concept of polarity (positive and negative) where the jars (and clouds) stored...

    New Commercials: MACH-E vs Gravity, Lightning, Rocket Science, Pit Crew, DNA

    Nkola Tesla would be proud! He was one of the few to promote electric vehicles and did build a few experimental toy versions, including a boat and a tank, both with radio control. He would also loved seeing how wireless charging works with cellphones.

    Honda licensed the Chevy Volt design for the Clarity PHEV, and GM will build EVs for Honda soon, so next time you visit that dealer you may have a choice of EVs.

    Mach-E Named Motorweek's 2021 "Best of the Year"

    I watch this series every week. They are related to Motor Trend magazine which I have read since high school in 1968. But the "2021 Car of the Year" award was given to a German car. UGH! Anyway, the same weekly show will do the "Road Test" episode next week (Feb 19th) on the Mustang Mach-e...
