Well anyone who thinks a flamethrower is a good idea...
That's not really correct on the cost to charge unless he charged it during the day and not after 11pm when the rates drop. At least that’s what happens in California. If my Model S P100D is empty and needs a full charge it would cost around $15 to full charge after 11pm and if done during the day it would be around $50. But remember most Tesla's get free super charging.A friend got his Model 3 this week. When you calculate how much it costs to fully charge it at home, it’s like filling up a tank of gas, I don’t get it. I’m guessing the SEC is going after Musk on the advice of other Tesla stakeholders - they normally take years to bring charges; this was done in a couple of months. Stupid texts about rescue divers, smoking weed during interviews, and all his other weird behaviour are probably making investors nervous.
Someone's paying for that--just not the Tesla owners. No such thing as a free lunch, as the ol' saying goes.But remember most Tesla's get free super charging.
Ditto....Waiting for Porsche's answer with the Taycan...
I hear the suicide doors are gone for production cars. I also have a deposit down on one. What concerns me is the charging from what I hear will only be at Porsche dealers or your own home. I think they will need more than that if they are to succeedDitto.
Due to the fact we've never owned a hybrid let alone an EV, I intend to lease wifey's Mission e / Taycan so we can simply walk away from it if there are 'issues'. Given it's a Porsche, I doubt there will be any...but, since 'Murphy' has been picking up his mail at our place lately... :bored
My biggest concern, though, is that the bean counters will have messed up the concept car looks/design-wise by the time it actually goes into production. E.g.: I'm 'lovin'-me-some' suicide rear doors and the concept's current interior (they're what sold wifey on the car in the 1st place). If they're messed with to any great extent (buckets front/bench rear...standard rear doors), the Taycan will, at that point, have become pretty much just another 4-door in a large crowd of same...and since neither wifey nor I are rabid 'greenies', that would probably squelch our interest in getting one.
Time will tell...
'Best not be. That's THEE singular most unique feature of the car.I hear the suicide doors are gone for production cars.
If that's the literal truth it's a deal breaker. Period. End of story. 'Would make 'road trips' in one too much of a hassle...especially if a recharge were necessary on a Sunday in, say, lower Bugtussle, Alabama...and there's no Porsche dealer within 3 light years.What concerns me is the charging from what I hear will only be at Porsche dealers or own home.
