    Definitely seems like a real performance bargain in the current market.

    I'm just not sure this is the product Tesla needs. It still uses the old NMC 2170 batteries, when Chinese brands have already moved on to semi-solid-state cells made with cheaper and more common materials and almost 50% more capacity.

      But can they produce them at a scale equivalent to Tesla?

        Reportedly they are at GWh scale already and multiple brands have launched cars with the new 360Wh/kg cells which are about 40% more energy dense than the cells Tesla is still using.

        They do 2170 for performance cause there's more power (for performance) they can pull at any given time.

        Of course the whole reason Tesla was supposed to switch to the 4680 was increased power density in addition to energy density, but it doesn't seem like they've fully delivered on that yet.

    I'm curious about how the torque pull is. Is it like the plaid where it just continuously pulls till 163 mph? Or is it like the older EVs where it floats ~120 mph. Its supposed to be Plaid downsized to Model 3 form factor. So it would be ground breaking if its got the similar unending pull

          The 2023 model s plaid with track pack is slower than a C6 zo6, and much slower than a 2018 camero Zl1. There’s also too many German sedans and coupes faster than the 2023 plaid I don’t care to name them all. Being slower than a C6 is still not bad, but shows how incredibly far behind Tesla is in any preformence metric that doesn’t involve sprinting the length of a parking lot. The new model 3s while fast to 60 is multiple seconds slower to 120 than a new base V8 mustang. EVs are not the best at racing or motor sports, they’re simply a 0-60 gimmick I pad on wheels.

            You forget the tesla is marketed with its 0-60, like all sports cars. and regarded by many normies as the “fastest car ever”, ignoring the fact it’s slow compared to vehicles half its price In not only track times, but acceleration past 60, like 0-120. Its track times reflect that weaker upper end and its shortcomings. It’s not actually fast where true high speed acceleration or actual driving dynamics are conceded.

        It’s hilarious the more you read into it. A base Tesla model 3 is slower than a first production year 350z and 90s corvettes and muscle cars. The new p85d Tesla is slower than a 2010 M3.

          >The new p85d Tesla
          That is one of the oldest Model S Performance versions, and you are comparing a big full size luxury sedan to much lighter cars in other categories.

          There has still not been a pro driver on a closed course to set a Nurburgring time with the Model 3. The rules changes at the ring have made it much more difficult to set fast times in recent years which is why the records from 10+ years ago are so hard to beat.
          Only manufacturers can afford to run their production cars for official records. The days of modified race cars set up specifically for the Ring by small teams to set records are over.

            Pure cope. The p85d was a 2018 still slower than sport sedans almost ten years older than itself. The plaid still gets shit on by ancient cars half its price. Comfort yourself upon hearing this information however you need to.

            So do all the other executive luxury cars in its class.

            10 years ago small companies like Unplugged or McMurtry could have just turned up at a industry development day and had their professional driver set an official record. They can't do it anymore. So the little guys are out.

            For the big guys the unfortunate reality of the car market right now, is nobody is really investing in competitive sports car platforms anymore. C8 seems to have been the last major new platform launch.
            Companies are currently either just selling minor revisions of their old cars, partnering with other companies to make cars that aren't actually that competitive but fill the sports car niche, or hyping a car that is still years away.
            The new Porsche 983, whatever they decide to call it is the next one to look forward to, but it isn't clear if they'll offer it in a race spec.

            The FIA have been saying for years they would have an electric GT class, but they have been dragging their heels. Nobody is going to sell electric GT cars if there is no electric GT series with a spec for homologation.

            >I worked with an old dude that drove from South Carolina to Mississippi twice a month to check on his property there.
            Sounds like an easy trip to make with modern long-range EVs. Especially if he owns property there. Just plugged one of the newest generation of EVs in and it says 746 miles from two of the most distant locations in that state top up right before leaving, arrive at 20%.
            It is only a ~750 mile trip, that's no problem for the new generation of long range electric cars. I don't understand the obsession with long range myself, but cars are popping up to serve the demand for it.
            Older generation cars would probably need a stop or two, but then again so would most people and there's a bunch of fast chargers to make that trip so even cheap used EVs could do it.

            >Going to Costco is a 100mi round trip for me.
            How is that relevant? Costco still doesn't even host EV chargers, at least not any I've ever been to. Gas stations like Costco's are going to be in trouble when they're doing as little business as fast chargers.

            >EVs are great for city folk
            On the contrary, EVs suck for cities. Nobody there owns property, and nobody has private parking. They are big markets that sit at ports or at the end of pipelines that deliver fuel right to them so they also aren't as affected by supply chain issues that can really screw over rural areas.
            Out here in the boonies away from the coasts fuel has to be trucked in, and if they miss a shipment it can be days before another one arrives. EVs make the most sense for the rural Midwest. We could be really energy independent if we kicked the oil habit.

            if you already own a car then it would be more economical and environmentally friendly to simply use that car for everything instead of buying a second car to do some of the things that your other car already does for you. please stop wasting my time with these idiotic takes.

            What if you don't already own a car or what if you want to get a new one?

            then don't buy a car that can't do everything you need..
            seriously are you moronic

            a model 3 performance will do what 90% of americans need though

            circular moron logic is not an effective debate strategy fyi

            I buy the argument.
            Which is why the ~500km BEVs are popular
            And the ~300km BEVs are stuck in being sold for specific professions. Such as urban beaters for tradies, or commute shitboxes like the Renault Zoe or the Leaf.

            Tesla’s strategy should have been to bundle their cars with other gas cars.
            Once most people get their first taste of a Tessie they realize how outdated every other car feels.
            The main thing holding people back right now is FUD, which could be neutralized by a bundle deal.
            Also they should aggressively increase the branding for their charge stations.
            Make it so that Tesla’s logo is on every interstate pit stop sign.
            When people drive past a gas station, no particular car brand comes to mind.
            When you drive past a Tesla station you get reminded of the brand.

            Dude, you're not seeing the whole picture. The future is to lock people geophysically. Though even that is a stretch. There are many other concerns other than cars for the minority kniving evil israelites. The ones I've known were from the majority. The Talmud is the shit the 10% butthole israelites MISSUSE and use to link to the Torah to bastardize their own religion. Their own misunderstanding of their own religion and beliefs is why they are so heavy into hurting people, especially us Goys. People who post like this on X are part of that minority frickfest of a once great religion (arguably leading to two other great ones, not that those few would let you know that).

            Now back to cars, EVs;

            Aight, but real miles are just range minus 100, when its cold, or intemperate for the sensors and cells onboard.

            ICE cars;

            Full range, means capability(ies) in an emergency.

            Verdict:

            both are great revolutions in the way we humans travel, and I would be proud to own both, a phev, or use a bullet trian in we actually had quality ones here in Amerifat.

            p.s. EVs for the forseeable, not really the future, try putting one around a tight bend with that ultra-rigidity and fricked weight bias. Batteries NEED TO BE LIGHTER!

      They're generally pretty reliable as long as you follow the recommended 80% daily charge limit. They don't have very many issues and the batteries retain about 90% life after 200,000 miles.

      They are going to maintain their value so long Solid State Batteries don't entrench the entire market.
      Even then they are not model X, which means:
      -No random water damage. Either you get it in warranty early, or the sealant is applied correctly at factory
      -Possible to buy 18' for more range and cheaper tires down the line
      -Only expensive realistically breakable part is the AC, and ACs on shitboxes regularly survive for untold years of service
      -Barely any brake wear, but enough that they don't turn to rust
      -Might have to pay for satnav updates down the line
      -Highland still shares 95% of the parts with the oldest 3's. Which means when things breaks, you pay for the newer model of steering wheel/suspension/headlights/etc
      -Still one of the most comfortable cars on the market to drive 160-240% of its range. Even more so if you bother to noise insulate the outside of the wheel wells

            A couple factors there, they really aren't that new anymore. Those cars are 5 or 6 years old, and most of them are close to 100k miles.
            A lot of people still believe the crap that EV batteries only last 100k miles, and cost $50k by themselves which depresses the price.

            As people realize these cars have better batteries than the first-gen cars, or 3rd party Model 3 upgrade packs start to appear the price will bounce back up.
            Especially now that they are so cheap hobbyists can start to buy them as project vehicles. Expect to see more Model 3s turned into track toys, rally cars, and other off-road vehicles.
            This really is the modern incarnation of the VW Beetle. A lot of people hated them, then they were cheap and people did all kinds of fun things with them, then the price rebounded.

            I agree but there are some problems with this theory.
            1. The 400v system isn’t as good as the 800V system in Audis or Porsche or the new Model 3.
            2. Tesla does a stupid thing where they update the care every week on the fly so lots of BS parts and chaos in the car. Who knows which ones are good or bad. Not even Tesla
            3. The interior isn’t bad, people saying it’s cheap are stupid, it’s simple and light weight and nothing is wrong with it. Just a matter of how those screens age
            4. Paint and colors are boring

            That is true, but how often is that actually an issue, and at least right now all the 800v systems are still in heavier cars that are less efficient so the end result fast charging is about the same miles added.

            >the new Model 3
            Last I knew Model 3, even the latest Highland refresh was still 400v. The Performance got the motor out of a Model S, but it is the standard Model S motor which is still 400v and not the Plaid with its new 1000v system.

            >Just a matter of how those screens age
            The screens at least are easily replaceable. I also suspect a lot of Model 3 project cars will get the 3rd-party performance dashboards already on the market.

            >Paint and colors are boring
            Not like a lot of modern cars come from the factory in exciting colors. Wraps and third-party paint jobs aren't that uncommon. Collectors might care about factory paint, but project car owners often don't.

            >They don’t do any racing
            Tesla themselves don't, but there are third-party teams competing at major short-form events every year, and they are in the racing video games which may be as important.
            If you watch the Japanese electric car racing series at all, it is still dominated by tuned Model 3s.

            Just like there are no mass adapted Solid State Batteries.

            You could make a argument for 800v based on charging, but the trip planner already do away with most of that need, even if double or triple speed over the slowest models are neat.
            >Tesla new parts randomly
            Yes. But they don't change the mounting points
            If anything, this is good because it means you can upgrade the car to the newer suspension/dampeners, refit into a newer trunk door, and even steal a new audio system from a scrapped one, and just bolt it on.
            You can also retrofit a Octovalve AC system to a older Model 3, if you can find a good scrapped one. So long you can setup the software.

            Biggest problem for Hyundai, and all the other CCS brands is that there just aren't any 800v 350kW capable CCS chargers, and that they all have efficiency ratings and charging curves that make them slower to charge even at 350 than a Tesla at 250 or even 175. When 800v 350kW NACS becomes more common they'll be a better choice, but they need to improve the curve and make EVs that are more efficient. Ioniq 6 is decent, and could compare to a base Model 3 but it needs the chargers to support it.

            Also most Tesla cars max out at 7.2kW on AC charging. Getting the 11kW or 16kW from AC is only on the higher-end models that need it because they are less efficient.
            At least in my experience just getting everyone on NACS and putting 72kW or 10kW chargers in more places will probably mostly solve the charging problem.

        That combined with the extremely stiff suspension give a lot of road feel as well. And excellent response. And the seamlessness of entering with one of the nicer keyless systems in the market.
        Or using the NA system to entirely remove planning logistics for longer trips, where the downtime is minimal due good setup for preheating + charge network.

        But its also the type of car you can sit on news sites and doomscroll while driving. Or try to shitpost in some comment field somewhere with the speech to text.
        Or spend the entire downtime of your taxi driver shift watching Netflix.

    I kinda like teslas but they simply still don’t make sense to buy. The ergonomics are terrible, the technology is advancing fast so if you buy one now before or anytime before 2045 or some shit it’s obsolete out the gate. Charging infrastructure is still abysmal and takes too long to be feasible.

    It will fail just like all EVs are bound to fail:

    You have to charge somewhere on a trip, if there's an emergency and you have to stop to charge, often during peak hours, it costs more than getting gas.

    There's also the fact that oil companies have leveraged social media successfully, and hybrids are outselling EVs now. People want gas as a backup if they run out of battery. This is why Toyota went all in on hybrids and hydrogen.

    1. we will still produce oil.
    2. Hydrogen is produced as part of the refining process, it can be used for hybrid fuel cells
    3. People want to remove uncertainty.
    4. Oil companies have been spreading FUD against EVs so long, and made them a political thing, that people are now against them.
    5. Even democrats are for killing EVs, they have turned every green program into a grift for their party, and have been backing companies that are not doing shit in the EV space while doing everything to attack and kill the companies that do. They give no love to the Koreans, they punish non-union shops like Tesla, and will be blocking the Chinese from selling in North America.

    This car, like all the other EVs, will fail in the long run, especially after Elon gets arrested eventually and Tesla shares fall enough to allow for a hostile buyout by institutional investors who also have interests with oil companies.

    So the long and the short of it is... who gives a frick about this. Stop fricking posting about EVs. They're dead.

      >it costs more than getting gas.
      $13 Per gallon equivalent with tax, so yes. Cost per mile on the other hand? It is often about the same as or a bit less than gas. Mostly thanks to EVs paying much higher road use fees than other vehicles that weight the same.
      Of course the savings owning an EV come from minimizing the energy you buy from fast chargers.

      >we will still produce oil
      Sure, but it is burning the oil and releasing the sequestered carbon that is at issue. Especially if done everywhere all the time at 20% efficiency.
      Modern 50% efficient diesel might have a role for heavy freight, or backup power in extreme situations, but not for daily driving.

      >Hydrogen is produced as part of the refining process, it can be used for hybrid fuel cells
      At $15 a kg hydrogen for a FCEV costs around $.21 a mile plus tax, and for a HICE would be $.50 a mile plus tax.

      If a company could sell a FCEV with 40 or 60kWh battery buffer and 4 or 6kg of hydrogen and nation-wide hydrogen refueling had $7 a kg that could be a real winner.
      But right now that doesn't seem possible. With fast charging now improving to the point they could deliver 300 miles in under 10 minutes the window of opportunity for hydrogen may have closed.

      >people are now against them
      Opinions born from bullshit propaganda can be changed by factual information.

      >Even democrats are for killing EVs
      Not as a party. The extremists within the Democratic party are marginalized, and losing power. Compared to the extremists in the Republican party that are still gaining power and denying reality.

      Even if Tesla folds because of Elon's bullshit, EVs aren't going away. You cannot undo the progress in electric motors, electric vehicle technology, or infrastructure.
      If the US doesn't keep up the rest of the world isn't going to stop.

        Except it happened three times already, all three times were the oil companies.

        China is getting itchy about going to war over Taiwan, when they finally do, it's going to cause a massive freeze globally when it comes to electronics. All the chips in your PC are made in Taiwan. Even China's chips in their cars are made in Taiwan. Few chips are not made there.

        Electric cars depend on Taiwan, TSMC is moving to the US at a Snail's pace and Xi is getting impatient and wants to storm the island already.

        Then you have moron doing this shit:

        https://electrek.co/2024/04/30/tesla-pulling-back-supercharger-plans-firing-team/

        Who has likely been compromised by oil interests, taking advantage of his gullible ass. He's going to sell off his shares one day and run away from the burning fire he created as he starts his new AI firm based out in Nevada. He doesn't care about Tesla anymore. He has AI now to scam people over on.

        Tesla owners will be holding his bags.

        EVs are dying and most people do not realize it. They also only make up less than 3% of all auto sales globally. If every manufacturer stopped making EVs tomorrow, no one would notice.

        I'm real tempted to sell my tesla right now before Elon fires the people who maintain the servers the cars use to communicate to the superchargers. He's looking to slim the company down and take all the money he can before he jumps ship. His friends have been selling off their stock like crazy in the last week.

        Tesla falls, the other car companies will see no reason to continue making EVs other than compliance vehicles. They'll get China banned in the west over spying concerns, and once the Taiwan thing blows up, China won't be worrying about making EVs.

        Oil's here to stay.

      Toyota hacked together a body swap for the Camry, and hacked together a Hydrogen vehicle because its a thing the Japanese do.
      And then it lies there, goes out of the media cycle, and dies.

      Not because its at a fundamental level bad. But because the Japanese only cares about Hydrogen from a "in case WW3 hits" perspective. Because the last time around it turns out they where one embargo away from the Philippines via USA to completely go dry for oil.

          They could have picked a nicer base such as Avensis or RAV4, Even then using a Camry as a base leads to a lot of compromises such as drivetrain geometry or weight balance.
