      >look up motor replacement cost
      >It's about the same as a whole frickin engine swap
      I was about to do the math on how much maintenance stacks up to those replacements, but the $100k in motors instantly made it pretty obvious which comes out on top. I bet you could replace your engine and transmission twice and still come out with more cash than this guy's zombie Tesla.

      Is cramming lots of power to weight the reason? Industrial motors last millions of hours but ofc they are heavy as shit. 24 000 hours at 50mph average would get you 1.2 million miles.

        I mean they are too small by industry standards, thats why they need to be cooled, industry motors on machines are just air-cooled and only get slightly warm when operating and even those need to be maintained/replaced every now and then, at least the bearings will eventually fail.

          >slightly warm
          The rule of thumb is anything under 160deg is fine. Hotter than that and your motor windings are cooking and will soon fail.

            That's a very nice thermal imager. I still use my Klein Tools TI-250, gets the job done but not nearly as pretty as that.

            Its like $10k but its got very high resolution, auto focusing and calibrating, and the Fluke software is nice at making reports to justify my job.

        The reason is that EVs are a meme and serve no purpose outside of leftist virtue signaling.

        Most of those remain under a constant load and speed, driven motors are under much more stress in a passenger car, constantly starting and stopping and reversing and regening is hard on a motor.

        No, the early Tesla's motors had a flaw where excess voltage could arc across the metal ball bearings. It stopped being a problem when they switched to ceramic bearings lol

        The modern Tesla's are designed pretty well but never buy an old model s

          Except that they lack any kind of quality control and they cheaped out on shit like the fricking point pattern around the front glass, so it breaks into pieces due to outside and inside abrupt temperature difference.

      Why do the motors wear out so fast? I would have thought that electric motors would last way longer seeing as they have less moving parts.

        The coolant seals go bad. The original motors had triple-lip seals that lasted 60k miles, but then they leak coolant into the stator which destroys the insulation. For the reman replacements Tesla replaced the 3-lip with a single-lip teflon seal that lasts 15-30k. which is just dumb.

      How's this possible? 1.2 million miles over 10 years comes out to nearly 330 miles per day. Every single day. Then there's downtime for recharging and repairs. Seems fishy.

        In Germany is it weird to have a 100 to 200 kms daily commute for high paying positions. I have a 40 kms commute one way and it's considered normal.
        Used to know a guy with a 185 kms one way commute. Took him about an hour.

      Motor had a design flaw that was eventually fixed, so they would only last a few tens of thousands of miles or so. After the fix the latest motor has lasted 500,000 milss

    Stainless steel doesn't rust but it does discolor, this has been known for quite some time. There is a reason why only one other car company in history has ever tried using unpainted stainless steel. It's odd because it normally happens with lower quality stainless steel but Elon was talking about how great the type of stainless steel they use is.

      There are several grades of Stainless. Musk wanted the truck to be arrow and golf ball proof, so it's being built with 301 stainless, which has the least chrome and most carbon of the 3xx series.
      DeLorean started with 304, which has less carbon (so not as hard, not heat treatable) but more chrome. Very early in production DeLorean switched up to 316 (according to their SS supplier) which is even more corrosion resistant. But softer.
      So it's all due to Elon's ego, just like all of Tesla's other problems.

      Stainless does rust. Other companies have also tried to make stainless vehicles, and even with the limitations of the time found no advantage to it. Ford tried, and while they couldn't get the panels thin enough it was only worth it as a salesman vehicle.

    early solar panels sucked shit. Yeah, they still kind of suck, but they suck a whole lot less. At some point, you just gotta go and build a pile of shit so you can figure out why it's so shit through using it. let idiots fund the r&d of this newer vehicle tech, but don't allow governments to ban ICEs.

      The problem is nothing in this is new tech, every aspect of it is a massive step backwards.

      although i guess they realized the fricking yoke is stupid so they added a bar to the top and just made it a really shitty wheel.

      Early solar panels are from the 1800s. Solar panel is a very mature technology. EV, not so much.
