Although electric cars are good and maybe are cars of the future, but at the moment in my country i think the best are hybrid cars because for everyday use in the city you use the electric mode, but when you go on a road trip you do the gas mode because there arent electric chargers here

Great video (as always) Marques, but Imma have to disagree with you here ever so slightly. I've been running an independent car sales store for years and live in the easily most EV-populated country in the world, Norway. A couple of years back I'd agree on the fact that range is the biggest caveat of electric cars, but it's not anymore, not on newer cars anyway. Ask yourself: when was the last time you ran a full tank of gasoline in your car in one day? I've probably done it once or twice in my life, and it takes some pretty long and spirited driving to do so. Most people don't need 500km+ of range in a trip, although it might be different in bigger countries like the US. The fact that you'd rather have a Taycan if it could use the chargers is a testament to just that; range isn't everything. The biggest drawback in my opinion is by far the charge speed, which seems a little left out of the equation here. A gasoline car can be filled within a minute or two, whereas a Tesla can be supercharged to 80% in ~30 minutes, which is a pretty long time if you're going somewhere. This is probably also why the Taycan has focused on achieving faster charging than any Tesla, cutting the charge time to 80% capacity to 15 minutes. Cut that in half again, and we're (literally) going places. This, of course, raises the question of charger availability as you mentioned, and a universal standard like petrol for petrol cars needs to happen, no question about it. Having driven both the Tesla and Taycan Turbo I can't phantom why you're still rocking the Tesla - but I guess the charge network is different where you live. Anyways, EVs are one of the most exciting developments of this time, and with the tech advancements I'm certain it will revolutionise the way we travel some day.

there should have been an international EV committee to decide on the supercharger standards, battery standards etc. something like what the USB group does. provide a common supercharger station and charger specs for all EV car manufacturers and third party component manufacturers to refer to as the blueprint. right now if Tesla wants to play big brother then they should start this committee otherwise it's just a slow messy progress for the EV industry.

Honestly the US and the world as a whole needs to decide a single standard for charging, like we have with type C in almost all of the smartphones. This whole compatibility wars are gonna do nothing but delay the proliferation of EVs.

tdebug Hace 8 días
My point exactly. In the EU the situation is much worse, as Tesla supercharging network is virtually non-existent and all the other EV cars have ridiculous range. Like really when I look on all those Mercedes, VW and audi, priced 100k€ offering only 300-400km range (on paper) it make me think why they even sell those. You can barely meet any of those on the streets, which means - I am not the only one who doesn't understand why. Availability of charging stations as well the charging time is a very, very valid point as well. If you need many hours to charge your car, that changes a lot and means that first you must have a charger at home (could be slow, but it is a must - no buts or questions asked) and also have an option to do super-hyper-quantum charge in a few minutes all over the country freely available. Before that people will just buy a petrol car if they need a car.

The most important thing electric car companies need to understand: Affordability. Once you go over 30k its not considered "affordable". If you aren't trying to create an electric car that has a 25k OTD price, then you are doing everything wrong. Tesla still has yet to bring these cars to the masses.
Gwen Andersen
Gwen Andersen Hace 10 días
I think it is much more important that the cars be affordable than that they have >200 mile range. I have a Model 3. I don’t need greater range. Really. How often do I go 250 miles? Not often, and when I do, I can charge a lot more easily than I could have paid an extra $10k.

Pretty sure other EV companies avoid tesla's charger network because of the fees tesla asks for them. Tesla isn't stupid, they know their appeal is half due to their charger coverage. If they gave that away for a cheap price then they would lose their edge. It's quite possible that tesla asks for too much cut that it's not profitable for other car producers.

Problem with electric cars is that charging them takes a ton of time. For instance a gas car that drives 600 miles on one tank of gas can be completely refilled in 5 minutes at any gas station unlike electric cars. I think electric cars will be more popular when they charge faster.

@MKBHD its a very interesting analisys what you have done, but, from an outside US perspective, maybe you're looking things in this complex industrie in a very american point of view. I will do my best to explain it. Look, car companies, even american ones are not going to surrender to a tech companie as Tesla. They are going to fight to do cars and all the enviroment that surrounds electric cars, as independent from Tesla as they could. Then we can say that today Tesla is not competing with any car brand (even though in some niche markets they're trying). Tesla is a tech brand after all, that is in some way trying to replicate Apple's business model. So we can say that Tesla's behavior is different from mainstrean car brands. The real challenge for Tesla is going to be if they can succed as Apple in the car business. And we can't forget that someday Apple and Google are going to enter in the industrie too. So, will be Tesla prepared enough to fight with car brands in one side and with the tech giants on the other side? Until today they're doing things really well, but i'm not so sure if that will be enough to be the dominant player, and win the battle against car brands and tech giants as Apple at the same time. And on the other hand, in underdevelop countries electric cars are a very expensive solution, so Hybrids or PHEV cars will fit much better in those modest realities.

With the majority of electricity still coming from coal and natural gas; I still don't understand how this is considered to be a clean technology.
Ronsted Hace 20 días
We're moving towards renewable energy sources every day. It may not be 100% clean yet (depends a lot on where you live), but even if you were to get *all* the electritcity from a coal plant, it would still be cleaner than any gas car. The reason why is because they are bigger than internal combustion engines, bigger things don't waste as much energy staying hot and that makes them more efficient.

So are you basically saying that you hope tesla carries on being a company who's products are only available for rich people who can afford to buy $70k cars? Personally I think it'd be in their best interests to focus getting their prices as low as possible so more people can afford to buy them.
Ronsted Hace 20 días
The cheapest Tesla right now is around $35k, and who says you have to get a Tesla? There are plenty of other great alternatives. Also, don't forget the upright cost of an EV is usually higher because of the battery. But in the long-run you do save a lot of money because an EV requieres less maintenance, no gas, no oil changes, less moving parts etc..

So great video thanks for posting, I think you’re right on about the advantages of having use of the Tesla Supercharger network! So when I bought my Tesla Model 3 back in 2018 I had to drive 17 miles to the nearest Supercharger located in another state, so I had to pay a premium in tolls to get there & today I have 2 new Superchargers located within 5 miles of my residence! So Tesla has a distinct advantage over any emerging competition for the foreseeable future, particularly since the awareness of climate change makes it a necessity for the driving public to have an electric car, as some states like California, New Jersey & I believe Massachusetts have all said they will prohibit all new car sales of ICE cars in their states starting in 2035!

Bitterness, Ego, and Infighting keep advancement and amazing things from happening on the inside of some of these manufacturers. Back in the 80s the Buick Grand National, a car that at one point was the fastest production car in the world and could get 30MPG or more with a turbo V6 engine was discontinued because it stepped on the Corvette's toes. A lot of Ford vehicles disappeared or were nerfed because they encroached on the Mustang. At least Chrysler is willing to give it's customers a Pickup, 2 Door, 4 Door, and SUV version with a Hellcat engine. As long as there's bitterness, jealousy and ego involved when a common goal is needed to be obtained everyone's idea is the only one and the perfect option even in the face of the best execution.

The USB-C vs lightning comparison is good analogy but you got it backwards, Tesla's is the lightning. The world of electric cars and charging has a USB format, which has it's evolutions so there are some older types so it's like an A, B, and C issue, but they're all the common type that independent charging uses. It was Tesla who went off on their own. In North America, everyone else uses J1772 (AC) for which Tesla supply an adaptor. In Europe the standard is a similar plug, the IEC 62196 Type 2. Commonly known as the "type 2" or "Mennekes." Tesla succumb and now uses it for model 3's in Europe (S and X used the Tesla plug). For DC fast charging the standard is Combined Charging System (CCS) that is just a J1772 or Type 2 with 2 extra pins. The cars have the receptacle for both. (It's basically like having wall outlets in your house have the holes for 3 pins but each appliance might have either 2 or 3 pins on their plug). There is a 3rd type used by Japanese makers but they seem to be switching to CCS for foreign Markets. CCS has been the standard for about 10 years and pre dates Teslas superchargers. Basically, Tesla were the first big charger network in the US so it seems like they should be standard but in Europe where electric has more footing the standard type is so popular Tesla has started using it... Tesla is the company trying to have their lightning connection, everyone else is on USB. Which is better, or will be better in future, etc. are different questions.. At the moment, CCS is older so has a more limited capacity than the lastest Tesla chargers.

I'm a huge car enthusiast and have owned everything from a supercharged Honda S2000 to a BMW M3. My next vehicle will be electric and it will be a Tesla, although my next toy may not be. A Tesla is not just an automobile, it is a system - an infrastructure product. This is similar with Apple, if I buy into the Apple ecosystem there are supporting benefits. These benefits exist because the design consideration is unified between products. The automotive industry is used to having compartmentalized development. Pistons from Mahle, Spark Plugs from Denso, Exhaust from Magna, Turbo from Borg Warner, transmission is from ZF, perhaps Tremec (if you're lucky), wheels by Enkei. Tesla is trying to integrate everything, that is why they can achieve what they are achieving for the cost they are doing it. Other automakers may never catch up...
