...you’re buying a giant mobile phone, according to reviews. The only thing to recommend the A is the electronic screens...that’s it.

Chris Harris drives a Model 3P, not an A. Randy Pobst helped develop the a Model 3’s handling, which is excellent. The A’s isn’t. The fun to drive factor on a 3P is about an 8, on the A it’s a solid 4. The A is the appliance. It’s built for going from point A to point B with big LCD screens to distract you from the fact that it isn’t a fun car to drive.

I hope you enjoy your appliance.:x

A Tesla Model 3 is touted as a zero-emissions car by government regulators, but it actually results in more carbon dioxide than a comparable diesel-powered car, according to a recent study.

When the CO2 emissions from battery production is included, electric cars, like Teslas, are “in the best case, slightly higher than those of a diesel engine, and are otherwise much higher,” reads a release from the German think tank IFO.

“It’s better read as a warning that new technologies aren’t a climate-change panacea. Recall the false promises about corn and cellulosic ethanol,”

I posted the above to remind people that there is no perfect solution, and, IMO, there is no life ending, vote for me, urgency either.

How about a smart and well thoughout pace driven by capitalism instead of gorwing government immensely, and backed by science that is proven and everyone agrees with, as we conserve and clean up our acts.

...that’s based on numerous assumptions on energy production mix. Around here, over 53% is non CO2 producing. Further, an EV gets cleaner as production gets cleaner...or even cleanest if you have solar on your home. An ICE vehicle will never get cleaner once you buy it. Never. I’d rather have the 15-20 year tail of an EV in the used car market than some of the poorly tuned, blown ring, bad gasket polluters I see the “less fortunate” driving.

Point again, there is no utopia. BEV is dirty too when purchased new due primarily to battery production. And guess what happens when that 15-20 year old BEV needs a new battery?

And you are 100% wrong if you think that oil production can't get cleaner. It can and does.

The electricity is making cars faster, not the world cleaner.

Enjoy your faster-than-Lambo Tesla, in a world more dirty.

...maybe you don’t read too good. I don’t live in Germany. Also, I buy my automotive electricity through Green Power Switch. So, for $20/mo, both my and my wife’s EV range is purchased from non-CO2 producing plants...how’s that A-Class compare? You get your CO2-free gas, yet?

Of course, the air in Germany or China have nothing to do with the air in Alabama. After all, each state and country is completely isolated from the others by invisible curtains that separate the entire environment and make each one have a different state of contamination. >:)

Anyway, global warming does not exist. At least, not the human caused global warming. You can continue using your Faster-than-Lambo Tesla without any fear of killing the planet. :x


P.S.: Is not where you obtain the electricity for your Faster-than-Lambo Tesla (you can take the energy directly from the sun if you want it...), is about the real consumption and CO2 emitions in the whole life of the vehicle. Is not only the source of the electricity you use to charge your Faster-Than-Lambo Tesla, is the CO2 emited by the production of the car and batteries. "A study released in 2018 also found driving electric cars might come with higher emissions than diesel vehicles, largely because of lithium-ion battery production". Here an article titled: "Tesla Model 3: mas emisiones CO2 que un Mercedes-Benz diesel". Is in Spanish, but I assume that you can pass it for the web translator. In that study made by the Economic Investigations of Munich It has been shown that a Tesla Model 3 emits more CO2 than a Mercedes-Benz A-Class diesel (220D) from the moment it is made up to 150000 Kms of operation. So, I'm proud to drive my A-Class in the near future!

The Faster-than-Lambo car is soooooo boring, that the driver fall asleep while driving it...





P.S.: Maybe is a fake news... but is fun to post it here... /forums/images/FordInsideNews_2015/smilies/tango_face_devil.png

...uh-oh. 20seconds faster than Taycan, you say?

The Tesla, with the new enhanced powerplant that set a record lap at Nurburgring, work with... diesel . Yes. Diesel. Because Tesla instaled there a supercharger that work with diesel.

The situation with the EVs are funny. Save the planet! Use electricity! The fossil fuels kill! And, in the end ,we have funny situations like this.

Anyway....

...short term solution until they got the SuperCharger installed, which is now...and it doesn’t run on the diesel generator.

“We've spoken to Tesla and the company confirms the new Supercharger is connected to the electrical grid and not a diesel generator.”
