I'm curious about your own ev charging in 20 minutes..

What car/ battery are you using?
What's the kwh of your charger?

Sounds like a lot of money for something slower than my old jetski.
Give me some useful specs.
Like driving.
Range with AC and stereo on for example.
Range pulling jetskis, ac on, full of passengers.

Hahahahah, awesome. Millennials are uneducated and ignorant


Lol, the irony of not being able to articulate a rebuttal to a topic, resorting to name calling, and thinking others are ignorant.

It’s a technology, not a political stance. EV’s have proven to outperform on certain metrics, and they’re cool for anyone who admires gadgets. We’re a decade or two in from meaningful adoptions, there’s quite a ways to go. Just poo pooing the idea though because you don’t understand it is the only ignorance I see here.

Yes energy independence is a big issue. That is why I wrote about battery tech and on board power generation that is called a battery too, just not a chemical one.

The PV system on my shops roof easy can charge 3x 250kW on a sunny day and I still send power to the grid. Only with nuclear power we can have EV in the realms the politicians and climate freaks want us to. I have been talking about this with a former workmate (the grid job) and he too is questioning how all the EVs should be charged.

I see benefit in EV not only for performance but like I wrote, when we now develop the tech with battery, we can utilize those fruits when we have a good power source. And we have that one, just that it will never be allowed in civilian hands and even if it would, people would literally freak out and demand it not to be. Because uneducated fears.

Yes I am talking nuclear batteries.

But what we do here in Germany is a drop of water on a sizzling hot stone. What we think we can save the climate with better engine tech over the course of a year, is nullified in one day by any bigger cargo ship running one day. And China, India and SA are the hot stones.

I usually average 50mpg with my car in good conditions on the highway. It’s a 2015, but the caveat is it’s a diesel. A bit more energy density per gallon.

Yes, it's top notch and a lookout on the future for lower tier class cars, the tech will trickle down. It's been like this with every ICE innovation, go figure. So now we compare water vehicles with road vehicles, is that the goal post you need moved to bring up an argument?

Drives awesome. Torque vectoring and the acceleration is just nuts. Very comfortable too. I drive it daily, it actually is very relaxing to drive because it's so silent. Only the first month was difficult to handle and judge battery but I never got into trouble running out of charge. And I drive it hard every day, the AC or stereo is peanuts compared to my driving style.
I give no mercy, just like I would in an ICE. Range is solid 420km with a 20min charge and some fun driving. Range obviously goes down drastically, I would say 250-280km driving fast and accelerating a lot, with recuperation in mind instead of just slamming the brakes.

Yes, ICE beats the range currently, but that is not what this thread is about. It's about people that further the prejudices because they can't see past their dish plate.

At days I complain internally about "loud wind noises" or that "the raindrops are loud today".

Dude, the specs on that car are terrible.
$187,400
750 hp, best case..lol
278 estimated mileage (best case, no accessories)
Yikes.
It sounds like buyers remorse projected as cockyness, honestly.

Yea, a creative fuel cell could solve quite a few of the problems. I used to be a big believer in hydrogen, but further research showed a problem with membranes being able to contain it efficiently (at least for now).

But if there was a clean source for fuel cells that is easily generated, than it’s a good way to store energy. A lot of the energy we generate goes to the ground because supply outpaces demand. But at those times they could generate something like hydrogen and store it for vehicle use and it isn’t as wasteful.

This also likely solves things like fill up times and range. As long as filling up is fast and convenient, range isn’t an issue.

A car that goes under 300 miles for 200k isn't making me want to eat your lunch.

Call me a selfish relic if you like but i'll stick with a v6 or v8, if those pushing electric vehicles can fly around in private jets i'll stick with my gas guzzler and it has no stain on my conscience. We all have our vices.

Taycan Turbo S, the battery that comes with it. 250kW. Granted, not something you do at home. How many people store 100s of L of fuel at home either?

250kW is not very common currently though. Let it develop, give it a few years.

It's a race bred EV, developed for the race track, just happens to be street legal.

It's not 200k and it does more than 300 miles, I just used my experience values, not the dealer values. Dealer value is 300+ miles. You can get cheapest model for 88k and have 315 miles range.

Oh, only 88k?

Hyundai has made huge steps with fuel cells and rumor is they figured out that cell wall perforation issue. However, the big companies in Germany already said no hydrogen for private travel, only transportation. Wind could be utilized for hydrogen generation, that way we can use them for peak shaving on the grid as they can go full load and we just reduce the amount of electrolysis. Same with PV. There are sites here in my country where it's already being done, I hope it will scale up fast.

I am very happy with 20mins fuel up time. That might change when I can not use my private chargers and have to wait 40 mins for the other two in front of me to finish. But I am very confident we will soon see a model that does it in 8 minutes.

And for long travels, after 420-450km travel, you want to step out and do human business, have a drink or just walk around a bit. The examples I always read are very extreme and may apply to US size countries. I did 1000km nonstop in my A3 diesel but it's not something I would do again. Yes, not even refuel, it ranged 1100km, 58l tank, same engine family as your car but 1.9 class BKC. Okay one drive-through at Burger King, I confess, but did not leave the car.

lyao as much as you want. It has always been this way, first ICE cars were not affordable to most, now look around. You are so short sighted, I thought better of you.

Cocky? I was asked about the car and I state the truth. I earned this money with hard work and put my priorities there. Some drink alcohol and smoke or do drugs, buy new furniture every few years or gamble. Don't judge me for what I have achieved and call me "cocky" for it.

And about the feminine part... SMH

Greatest bull# I heard this month. If you were 26years in EV business, you would have known the above. Stop lying, would you?

So 20 minutes to charge?

"To achieve the 22.5 minute charge time, the Cayenne battery must be recharged under ideal conditions. This includes recharging the Taycan at an 800-volt high-power Bay Area electric car charging station with a maximum charging capacity of 270 kW."

So correct me if I'm wrong here.

270kwh= 270,000 watts

watts ÷ volts = amps

270,000 watts ÷ 800 volts = 337amps....

A charging station would need over 300 amps at 800 volts to charge in 20 minutes.. a standard is only 200 amps at 240 volts.

Lol you have yours and I have mine. You keep stating my model. How about you look at the base model that has even more range, if your argument is range.

Unless your argument isn't range but just being a dumb ass. Then keep stating my model and ignore the factor of 2+ in price difference.

Buyers remorse? I keep getting offers for the car because they can not manufacture it fast enough but I will not sell. Have you even seen one in real life or driven one? Reserve your judgement for that moment before your low grady psychology skills attest me "buyers remorse".

Re-read your post. Yes you were cocky. Everyone is stupid and archaic compared to you.

We're not all poor drunks/druggies.
I could easily buy a 200k car cash, if I was impulsive and bad with money too.
I would buy an airplane long before that.
It is an absolutely terrible investment.
Not even a good toy purchase.
So yeah, lol carry on bragging.
I'll lol as I pass you at your "charging station" or roadside lithium fire party.
