      Friskier was a thing, and not another Tesla copy 10 years ago?

        Fisker Auto started selling cars in 2011. Tesla even tried suing them back in the day, saying they stole Tesla tech, but Fisker won that suit by a landslide and Tesla had to pay out millions to cover Fisker's legal fees. They lost over $30mil worth of cars to flooding in Hurricane Sandy in late 2012, at about the same time they were defaulting on their huge gubberment loan(s). So, hating the entirety of upper management and feeling the whole thing was a farce, Henrik Fisker left the company. Almost immediately they laid off 75% of their staff, and filed for bankruptcy. It was all bought up by Wanxiang Group, who built the new "Karma Automotive" company, which has been struggling since day 1 and continues to struggle and flail. MEANWHILE in 2016, Henrik Fisker and his wife Geeta Gupta-Fisker started a new company, Fisker Inc. Their first vehicle was the Fisker Ocean SUV, announced in 2019 and on sale in 2023. They started a collaboration with Foxconn, and intended to produce their next model (the PEAR) in China. In early 2024, they revealed that they were in financial trouble, having lost over $450m in 2023. They were relying on talks with big automakers (purportedly Nissan), but those deals all fell through and became nothing. On June 17th, 2024, they filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. They've stated that they have no stockpile of spare parts for the Ocean, as they were trying to save money, so there are no service parts remaining for the ~5k Oceans on the road.

      It's actually legal if the company declares bankruptcy to not have to support any existing product or warranty. If the product was dependent on constant product support to function, they do not have to continue providing that product support. EVs do require constant product support, so this could happen to any of them unless they start making them disconnected to the internet/company server. That needs to happen. These were not made to be free roaming technology and now they're bricked.

            I understand them, which is why I consider the statement that software inherently needs constant updates to function moronic. Will the software get outdated and insecure? Yes. Will it just stop working one day because some server in Bangladesh went offline? Not unless it was specifically designed that way by a moron. Code running locally on the machine doesn't give a shit how old it is, it'll keep doing what it's made to do unless told otherwise or unless the hardware fails which is not in any way specific to any particular kind of car.

            The cars aren't going to suddenly brick themselves but there are other issues. Roadside assistance has already stopped working (because Fisker didn't pay). Maps will stop working soon (because Fisker won't pay). Fisker was having a hard time supplying replacement parts and this was before the bankruptcy and before they laid off most of their staff and closed most of their locations. Basic diagnosis requires a proprietary tool, connection to their servers (which will soon close for good) and an employee authentication (most of whom are gone). Its internet connection relies on T-Mobile, and Fisker owes them a shitload of money.

            When Fisker couldn't even get the key fob to work right, I am struggling to see how any of these cars will still be on the road 5 years from now. Maybe they will get bought out and someone will keep their servers online, but barring that their reorganization effort has about a 0% chance of success given they have no way to make money at this point.

            I understand them, which is why I consider the statement that software inherently needs constant updates to function moronic. Will the software get outdated and insecure? Yes. Will it just stop working one day because some server in Bangladesh went offline? Not unless it was specifically designed that way by a moron. Code running locally on the machine doesn't give a shit how old it is, it'll keep doing what it's made to do unless told otherwise or unless the hardware fails which is not in any way specific to any particular kind of car.

      Same thing for any ICE car, if the company goes bankrupt they won't be expected to keep supplying replacement parts for your car any more and eventually it becomes a brick [unless some other company steps up and makes aftermarket parts]. EV company goes bankrupt, they won't be expected to keep maintaining your car's software or fixing it if it bugs out. The difference is that moronic EV engineers made everything in the car dependent on a single computer system in the car, so if their super secret proprietary branded programming shits itself for whatever reason you're totally fricking fricked.

      >But it brings up the question, what happens to proprietary EVs if the company goes under?
      Depends on what you mean when you say proprietary. For example Fisker cars require a FAST (Fisker Aftersales Service Tool) to do anything. Not just that, but all their servers are going to go down very soon if they are not already. Now if you had some savvy software engineers you could get around that issue if you had the source code, but Fisker doesn't even own it. Another company does. So even if you are some sort of ubermensch mechanical and software engineer with infinite money to throw at the problem, your car will still be a paperweight.

      Also to access diagnostics or any advanced functions, you have to go through Fisker servers with an authenticated employee account (neither of which will exist).

            But if you have 10 tesla chargers running at a throttled rate of 100kw, that's 1 mw draw on the grid with pretty big rapid swings. A small charging station is like a factory in terms of power consumption

    Fisker should be radioactive by now in the automotive industry. The guy has failed his last 5 or 6 last ventures. I am struggling to understand why these large, legitimate companies would loan this guy so much money. Bizarre.

        which royal enfield? The british company from 100 years ago, or the import shell company selling death traps from poo land?

          He's talking about the modern one. When they started selling in the west they realised they really needed to step their game up to overcome the brand identity issues they had had from past attempts to sell here. The new 650 Interceptor was designed and developed in the UK, and is only assembled in India from British-made components. They're really trying, and the bike is legitimately as good as a Sportster (not a high bar to cross, but still a league ahead of a RE bike from 20 years ago)

            nta, but
            1) frick india and everyone who's from there, the country needs to be nuked and the people concentration camped
            2) RE does actually make good motorcycles nowadays. because they're designed by white men, ofc. still, since its indian owned, its best not to buy them.

    I think need a general purpose law that states something like "device manufacturers may not artificially block or restrict the actual owners of the device from using it with third party software, hardware, or repair services". That would help alleviate a lot of this sort homosexualy, not just with cars, but with phones, trains, and farm equipment.

      Brushless DC motors need more complex control than + and -, you need more gradual control than on/off, and especially battery packs need a lot of extra hardware to balance load and cooling.

        the irony here is that turning on and off is exactly what brushless dc controllers do, they just do it fast enough to appear seamless.

          Kinda, they turn coils on and off at exactly the right time to get near-seamless motion. PWM controllers are the ones that just turn on and off very quickly to get the appearance of seamless control.

      Because like an ICE car you need settings between 'off' and 'full throttle', especially with EVs having moron strength acceleration

      I think it's mostly caused by manufacturers themselves, the car needs a computer to check the condition of the battery and control the flow of the power to the motor (on the bare minimum), so, the engineers keep putting shit on the computer to the point it's basically a proprietary smartphone. That's why they have so many useless "features" such as keyless doors for example.
      And of course, when there's a problem with the software, you need to update! No one ever took in consideration what would happen if the service ever went out...
      Maybe someday people will start jailbreaking their cars or something.

      A DC electric motor needs to constantly cycle power to its separate electromagnets as it rotates to keep them applying torque in the right direction. A very simple motor like that does the cycling using conductive brushes that rub against contacts on the rotating part.
      If you've used a cheap power tool that smells like sparks and burning metal while running, it may have used a motor like that. Those have a pretty limited lifespan, so they're not really optimal for many applications.
      You can avoid the sparky mechanical contacts by toggling power to the motor's coils using power electronics and permanent magnets instead. Kind of like a solid-state alternator, but in reverse. Modern power electronics are actually really, really good, but they do need to be kept cool, and some kind of computing device may be involved in controlling them.
