    Why would you buy a car that the manufacturer can control and decide what you can do with your car?

    Rich, this corporate control of the vehicle you bought is why Australian farmers are pushing for legislation to allow local independent mechanics to repair broken American tractors rather than waiting two weeks for the corporate mechanic. For someone like you if you were in Australia you wouldn't drive a pure EV. Long distance driving is a pain. But plug-in hybrids are a good compromise. Charge the car overnight at home and it will get you up to 70 kilometres before the engine starts up. Nearly all your city driving will be electric. Then when you have a long drive your first 70 kms will be electric then the engine starts up. You'll still get some electric driving as going downhill or braking charges the battery but your range is back to normal. As a rebuilder you could probably modify your plug-in hybrid with a bigger battery. Something to think about!

    Im no engineer, but is is possible to bypass the entire circuit that controls the speed of charging? By hooking up your own connections straight to the battery terminals could you achieve a faster charge? Or allow you to charge in parallel? The battery can obviously handle higher current with supercharging.

    But a hybrid from Hyundai or Nissan if you want to be environmentally friendly. All the electricity you need for a short trip, better cost, gasoline backup in case you have no place or time to charge it and they don’t have so much of a monopoly on the technology. Even if you want an electric go to Nissan or Hyundai. It’s a lot cheaper, you can get replacement parts and they’re pretty much able to match Tesla range nowadays anyways.

    Can you create a dummy load that communicates with superchargers and draws the absolute maximum current converting it to either an arc light or heat without shutting off? Something cheap so you can leave them? Think of it as helping stress test the network of superchargers... 😁

    So, where are we at with Hydrogen vehicles? 3-5 minutes to fill, water and warm air out of the tailpipe, and no maniac shutting down how fast you can charge or what you can do after buying this overpriced junk. Sounds like a win to me. Is the EV any better if the electricity that is used to charge the battery not from a clean source? How about the emissions produced and the damage to the Earth from mining the precious metals to make the battery? If the car is totaled one year after manufacturing, the emissions created to make the car is already out and the car that was supposed to clean the environment is sitting in a junkyard? Sounds like a total loss to me, from the car being totaled to the emissions already produced from the manufacturing process. Don't get me started on a 'Green' company launching into space. Lets see what kind of emissions are created and how much is produced from the launches. I'll keep my gasoline cars as long as I can, thank you very much. Rich, love what you do here on the channel. Keep it up!

    I was on the verge of buying a tesla. I don't make long journeys that often, mostly travel 25 miles a day to work and back so I could easily charge overnight. But after seeing this I will not buy one. I'll buy another petrol car, or an EV from another manufacturer before I ever give any money to tesla. I hate shady unethical companies.

    F&^% Tesla. I would never support their products because of this asinine policy. Who do they think they are, Apple? Wrong move, pal. The other manufacturers have caught up; it's not a hard choice anymore between Tesla and a Mach-E. And they have the infrastructure, unlike Tesla. Tesla might want to consider reversing this non consumer-friendly practice sooner than later. Foolish.

  • Russell Hawkins

    Do Tesla I think their cars are so brittle and fragile that once they’ve been sold on, or had a bit of a prang, then they’re no longer serviceable? Or that their mechanics are so incompetent that even after a $12,000 Tesla certification, they don’t believe their mechanics..... Why? Do they think/know them to be incompetent? Such actions as Tesla has taken are a very negative assessments of their own products. Did Elon lie when he stated what he did? He has certainly been made to look like he has - possibly by someone wanting him to look like a liar, liar, pants on fire..... That’s far too much influence over the product by the manufacturer doing what they’ve done. Saboteurs could knacker every Tesla drivers transport in a harsh hack..... or flick of a switch.
