    Cybertruck in sub. -30C temperatures

    I wonder what happens when you touch the Cybertruck's steel body with bare hands in sub -30°C temperatures... instant frostbite?

    VW ID.3

    Well, that was awkward how they dragged the two children on the stage... I guess some marketing guy said, they have to do a "fridays for future" thing. Because... its a thing. Awkward. But I liked how you could clearly point out the single person on stage who did not got paid for being there...

    Lambo CEO can't imagine e-supercars

    Funny, because just today I saw a video about Lambo's vision for a fully electric Lambo. "Terzo Millennio" - skip the video to 12:20: TL;DR (IIRC): - They want to keep the car as flat as possible, so the driver will not sit on top of the battery - They will use a gear box with several gears...

    Dual Fatality Model S Crash/Fire: Fort Lauderdale, FL May 8, 2018

    What are you talking about? I have not heard or seen a thing about this case in german media. Let alone german "mainstream media". The only thing I heard about cars in german media was Audi (aka Volkswagen) cheating again with a supposed to be clean post-dieselgate car.

    AUTO BILD: Tesla suspected subsidy fraud in Germany

    Denying the incentives to cars which cost more than 60k Euros is not against Tesla it is against moving poor people's tax money into the pockets of rich fat german bastards. Rich fat german bastards can avoid taxes in Germany, the poor people have to pay them, which is why the rich get richer...

    Drag Strip Launch Mode

    You have a reaction time of half a second? You should get some ego shooters on your PC and practice your reaction time... And does the reaction time matter at all for your time? I thought they have a photocell, which starts the measurement.

    Cheating Pollution Company Decides to make poor selling old car electric

    Poorly selling? They sold 21.5 millions of the beetle. They are not converting an existing car to electric, it will be based on the new "Modularer Elektrifizierungsbaukasten (MEB)" platform (like the ID and ID Buzz) which will be the base for 50 different purely electric models until 2025 (not...

    That Motor Trend 1 foot rollout

    The 1ft rollout has always been bullshit and it will always be bullshit. When you use it, you simply do not measure the 0-60 time. And here I have to quote Spicer (even though this might make my argument look weak): "Period!" Really. Either you measure 0-60 or some bullshit. 1 ft rollout is...

    MX 0-60 Increases! (75D and 100D)

    I never heard of this industry standard beyond a drag strip. And why is Tesla using the 1ft roll out only for the most expensive models? If it would be a real standard, they should use it for all of their models. Otherwise it is just a marketing scam.

    VW I.D. CROZZ concept

    I think you are mistaking the MEB for the MQB (2012) platform. The MEB is a dedicated BEV platform. It is impossible to put a combustion engine in a MEB car. And a VW battery plant is getting build in Sazgitter, Germany.

    Criticizing the Criticism

    Haters always hate - and fanboys will always hate criticism - even valid criticism. I wish there would be a Tesla forum without haters and without fanboys - and without investores who try to defend their short or long positions.

    Tesla does not build weird mobiles. This Screen would make Model 3 a weird mobile, so this will not be the final screen. +1, looks awesome and it would fit perfectly into the Model 3 dashboard. I think such a display is much more likely than the prototype abomination.

    VW doesn't get memo: "EV's no longer have to look stupid".

    You do understand the difference between a concept car and a real car, or maybe not? Look at VWs current fully electric EVs: the e-Golf, the e-Up, and the hopefully in 2017 upcoming e-Crafter. All perfectly boring.

    2014 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid

    How far do the e-hybrid Panameras (really) go these days in fully electric mode? I think they have a 14.1 kwh battery (11 kwh usable). A max electric range of 31 miles seems really small for 11 kwh. Well, at least the Panamera does not look like a dog which takes a dump in your front yard anymore.

    German Government Votes to Ban Internal Combustion Engines by 2030

    This will never happen, because Germany is not a democracy - it is a lobbycracy.

A tiny spark of hope: Thanks to pressure from the EU, from 2018 on at least in...
