Can conversions use this.
I love standards - there's so many to choose from!
A whole smorgasbord of choices!
Very few cars will ever drive between these regions. Not really a big problem. A big problem is when there are multiple standards within one region. Europe has that problem at the moment for Level2 AC and needs to get it's act together.
Well, what about the Leaf being delivered with CHAdeMO into Europe and USA? I gather BMW may be planning to offer CHAdeMO as well in their next round of EVs. Japan standard FTW by default due to early global deployment?
cold weather usage of Tesla electric motor
does the tesla motors work in cold climates i know we have a rav 4 ev being built here in Canada but would the range of operation change in cold as low as -40 C and will it even operate at that temperature ?
Is this the right topic for that question?
Here are some related topics:
Wait for sport/performance option?
Response to the news the Chevy Volt lost half it's range in cold weather driving
Note to moderators : it might be a good idea to make a "How well does it perform in the cold?" topic, and consolidate a lot of these types of posts there.
I want to talk about the battery.I don't know if you study this as hard as i do but a carbon nanotube battery could allow the model s 500+ mile range.Also it would allow a battery weight of just 250 lbs!please respond!!!
I wish i worked for tesla i could improve their cars so much...Lets talk about the battery.
There are a lot of interesting battery techs in various stages of pre-commercial development. For a commercial automotive application, Tesla was wise to stick with well-proven technology. I sincerely hope that, as the battle among the competing battery technologies resolve, we'll see lighter and cheaper batteries for future iterations of the Model S and all EVs.
Nanotubes are the answer!
Yes, just a question of time.
Sounds like you want to work for Tesla's cell supplier, Panasonic, or another cell manufacturer. Tesla's expertise is assembling cells into large battery packs, which requires a quite different set of competencies.
