EVs - a disruptive era

I can’t see any motor racing surviving in it’s ICE format for much longer. Fiat, owner of Ferrari, has been forced into partnership with PSA and Aston Martin (Red Bull) are struggling financially also. The days of easy profits from dirty tailpipes is coming to an end......and thus the funding pipeli...

Re: 2020 Ioniq

post......It depends on the dealership and whether or not they have a versatile, enthusiastic and knowledgeable sales rep on the floor. Most don't, but those who do, make sales. Wild West where I bought my Ioniq from are keen, professional and not pushy at all. Not all are like that, though. Yeah, ...

Re: 2020 Ioniq

Does anyone seriously think that the dealership network is in any way enthusiastic about replacing their high maintenance profitable ICE vehicles with sharply priced (low margin) negligible maintenance EVs ? How many do you see on any sales floor in various colours to choose from other than drab gre...

About that trip card

It says ‘since last charge’ or similar, but my experience is that the reality is since last stop.
Am I missing something?

Re: Seat belt rattle

The JD Power report is very understanding of the average American’s lack of knowledge about tech etc NOT understood by Americans.
A different perspective isn’t appreciated. (Not invented here - no good)
They need the ICE age of complexity to keep going and, like so many, Tesla represents a WMD.

Re: Seat belt rattle

Here's a radical solution... Don't buy an American car. American manufacturers make Fiat look reliable, and Tesla managed to place themselves at the very bottom of the quality/reliability list. I thought the model Y would be my first Tesla, looking at the first reviews on YouTube, not a chance. Sor...

Seat belt rattle

I’ve heard about this before but I’m not sure what the fix was. Beside the driver’s right ear, the top mounting point for the seat belt, on coarse chip bitumen, a gritty sizzling noise has developed. A bit of a pita to have to go 130km to Richmond but if I can’t do it myself it looks like there’s no...

Yeah sad to hear about Jack's diagnosis. I generally didn't find his ramblings all that helpful, but appreciate the videos he put together.

Re: Superchargers planned/under construction

I’ve suggested that they might like to view the charging infrastructure as being an essential service for some and thus re...

Re: Superchargers planned/under construction

So I wonder just how much longer is Highway 1 from Melbourne to Sydney going to be unavailable for EV owners due to zero rapid chargers in the 500+ km Victorian section. (Westbound you will almost certainly have a considerable headwind in winter and similarly eastbound in summer) A combined 10 mill...

Well 16.2.1 arrived today and now the hands free warnings (only on motorways) is now every 50 seconds. Enough time to unpack the sandwiches.
Hmmm........that applies only for 2-3 times then it reverts to much shorter.

Being ICEd

I just asked the Alpine Shire of Victoria if they fined drivers who parked in clearly defined Tesla charging spots at Ovens. (the app photos speak for themselves) They will get back to me. All charging locations should be seen as a nice little council earner.....at least until the children grow up.....
