Pretty impressive.

If you need a 400 mile range to commute you should be in the market for a new job or a different place to live.

The last time we had this thread it was poorsplained to me that nobody has a place where they can charge a car overnight. And that anyway keeping track of charging your car was impossible, you need to just be able to jump into your car like the Duke boys and take off for 500 miles.

Try to think things through.

If it was legit, then Musk would've offered her a substantial premium for the company.  Just like that.  An offer she couldn't refuse.

The problem with any lithium-based battery is that the physics is well known.  People have been trying to make electric cars for literally centuries now.  It's not a new thing.  So when somebody comes along and says "I made lithium batteries WAY BETTER!", you have to basically assume they're full of shiat.

Actually, in battery research there's a new "miracle technology that will revolutionize the electric car market" every year. Sometimes it's a marginal improvement on AGM lead-acid technology. Other times it's some new tech with a legit niche market, but is sold to investors as "revolutionary"  when there are really only a few products it's appropriate for (for example, amazing energy density but very low power density due to high internal resistance). In this case, it's supposed to be packaging. Like battery manufacturers don't know how to package their own products. It smells like BS from the get-go. When someone starts talking about a new lithium cell chemistry, my ears will perk up. Otherwise, move along, nothing to see here.

Now that one is exciting. Of course, they haven't shown that it can be mass-produced at a reasonable cost yet, but that legitimately could be the next big battery tech. Of course, I've said that about other research projects in the past decade; silicon nanowires were looking pretty exciting three or four years ago.

35 miles round trip?  Then Chevy Volt.  53 miles of EV range then just use the gas engine when going long trips.

35 miles one way?  Then BMW i3 with range extender 2 cylinder gas engine.  about 100 miles of EV then kicks over to the little 600cc generator that'll keep you going.  They fixed the stupid California mandated lack of power thing in the 2017 version.  Long story look it up but basically the 2.5 gallon gas tank will make sure you don't run out of juice.  There's no such thing and won't be any such thing as a 400 mile EV any time soon.  Doesn't exist and isn't even on the drawing board by any major EV manufacturer...not even Tesla.  The article is just talking theoretical things.

From the Wikipedia article on that product:

In 1981, a German landlord evicted a tenant without notice after the tenant spread surströmming brine in the apartment building's stairwell. When the landlord was taken to court, the court ruled that the termination was justified when the landlord's party demonstrated their case by opening a can inside the courtroom. The court concluded that it "had convinced itself that the disgusting smell of the fish brine far exceeded the degree that fellow-tenants in the building could be expected to tolerate".[17]

Tesla isn't that big, and they're nearly drowning in red ink. They've been burning through cash to get their production up to meet delivery of the pre-orders for their model 3.

They have taken over 500,000 preorders for a vehicle that's not technically in production yet. They've only delivered about 50,000 Model S/Model X vehicles so far this year, and that's with the benefit of several years of expanding production.

Musk wants to be making 10,000 cars per week by 2018, so basically they have less than two years to increase their production by over 500% and the last thing they need right now is to go back and re-engineer their production line for a new battery system.

Fark has very specific groups of Luddites. Somehow electric cars will never be a thing because reasons.
Another one that gets brought up is the infrastructure. I was hooted down the other day for suggesting it's easier to put in an electrical outlet than to get permits for a gas station.

These things bloody run on household current no proprietary charging system required. That changes everything, unless you're a city arcology dweller, in which case you should be using public transport.

Electric cars aren't currently a thing for me because of their limited range and long charge time.  I drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles regularly.  There's also the problem of not having a charge station where I live (an apartment).  That doesn't mean an electric car isn't a possibility in the future.  They simply don't currently meet my requirements.  That doesn't make me a luddite.

It makes you a luddite because the way to get charging stations everywhere, including your apartment is to have more demand for them. Fifteen years ago, not a single airplane would have a power socket available outside of the kitchen galley and perhaps the restrooms. Not a single airline's gate seating area would have power sockets or USB sockets. Now, practically every jet plane has power sockets or USB sockets on the back of the seat in front of you, or underneath your seat. Every gate seating area has ample power sockets right at the seats themselves.

You buy, then create the demand for them.

I can't justify owning two cars and, for reasons I've clearly stated, an electric car won't server my purposes.  I can't switch to an electric car and hope they support will get implemented because I have immediate needs that can't wait what could be months at best and more likely several years.

The difference is the outlets at the airport are a nice to have, but not a NEED to have.

Sorry, I was unclear. 35 miles each way. If the new extended range Model 3 can go 300 miles on a charge, for me it will be competitive with other commuters. If a year from now that range is 400 miles, I'll buy a Model 3.

I'll believe it when I can buy it. Battery technology is snake oil for venture capitalists.

Besides, my Leaf already goes as far as I need and I rather like being the most nimble thing on the road. Instant full torque, no messing around with gears and power bands and turbo lag. It's not a quick car if you go by the performance numbers, but because it delivers its full power without any drama you (ok, me) can use that power by default. No screaming engine hitting the rev limiter, just a slightly louder hum and a satisfying surge of acceleration.

OgreMagi: dericwater: It makes you a luddite

Also, you need to get yourself a farking dictionary and look up the definition of "luddite" since you so obviously don't have a clue.


Just like your inability to move with the times, the contemporary definition of "luddite" has expanded to include neanderthals like you.

/I'm sure you're going to go all pedantic on me for misusing "neanderthal".

No, I'm not going to criticize your use of that word.  I'm going to criticize you for being an idiot.   I use bleeding edge technology every day of my life.  But because one particular type of tech is not YET useful to me, you call me a luddite.  That doesn't just make you an idiot.  That makes you a farking moron.

Shazam999: The thing is Tesla raises cash like crazy. Debt, equity, whatever. Their last equity issuance didn't even make a dent to their stock price.


So? Still doesn't help them logistically... changing designs now will only put them further behind schedule on a goal that's already considered "highly ambitious" even by the most optimistic standards.

No sense licensing a tech they can't use for a few years, especially if it's not an exclusive license agreement.
