  1. 271 miles! 100% charged. What’s your range shown?

    80-90 on a highway? NFW. Unless he changed his speedo to metric and I doubt that. 50 mph on a highway? Yeah, doable. Especially as he was at the ideal air temperature.
  2. 271 miles! 100% charged. What’s your range shown?

    Just to confirm the system isn't being gamed :). What do you think your average speed was for the last 20 minutes before you charged?
  3. 271 miles! 100% charged. What’s your range shown?

    From an actual trip. Air temperature was 21C/70F. At 100% SOC indicated range was 424 km/264 miles. Distance travelled at 115 kph/71.4 mph was 484 km/300.8 miles.
  4. Is it ethical to purchase a lithium battery powered EV? - Article

    Follow the money. Whenever anyone promotes something, ask who provides their funding and who won't they take money from. There's always an agenda and some are better than others.
  5. When Idiots Attempt an EV Road Trip

    A very good riposte from Transport Evolved.
  6. Bjorn reviews the Taycan fast charging options

    Been awhile since there was Bjorn video. I thought this one raised some interesting points.
  7. Regen Issues when Cold

    From the dictionary. Recuperation - instance of getting something back After surgery there will be a period of recuperation Regeneration - act or process of coming back A lizard regenerating its tail Context probably determines which term is best.
  8. Taycan - Daily Driver even in Winnipeg Winter?

    It's unclear if you will be plugging in every night. In that climate you should really should. If you have an issue, it will be the car sitting in a parking lot at -30C for a large part of the day. That is the temperature your battery will be at and it will be very slow to charge so you would...
  9. Taycan - Daily Driver even in Winnipeg Winter?

    Even given your winters -30C/-22F, range in the winter for city driving should be fine. Just make sure you plug it in every night. Even better if your garage is insulated. Do you park it in an outdoor lot during the day when at work?
  10. When Idiots Attempt an EV Road Trip

    Yeah, anything that comes out of a Murdoch press organ needs to be viewed with suspicion. They have an agenda and will misrepresent, obfuscate, dodge and weave to further that agenda. And EV's aren't part of that agenda.
  11. When Idiots Attempt an EV Road Trip

    When the network of fast DC charges becomes dense enough, than this goes away too. The tipping point is when the cost to own and operate an EV is generally known to be less than an ICE. Last man standing will be an a**h*** in a jacked up F150. (Comment added as one wanted to play games with...
  12. deep look into charging a cold battery

    @rs38 I was wondering if your App could output how the battery is heated and cooled depending on temperature. Can you output the battery temperature and how the BMS is maintaining that temperature from a low temperature to a high temperature?. Basically when the BMS is kicking in to heat and...
  13. DeLorean Alpha5 electric car unveiled to rival Porsche Taycan

    I like dreaming too. Then I wake up in the morning and reality sets in. True for more than just cars.
  14. deep look into charging a cold battery

    The problem I had was the difference between Reported SOC and Internal SOC was down to 1% at when SOC was around 85%. Does that mean it gets to zero when SOC gets to 100%? We know that Gross Battery is 93.4 kWh and net is 83.7 kWh so the difference appears to be the buffer. I don't know how...
  15. How much HP does a Turbo S REALLY have? Dyno Run Video

    Yes I do mean efficiently. To quote Archimedes, "Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand and I can move the world". For that to work he has to find a lever long enough and a place to stand". At some point It becomes a theoretical argument rather than a solution.
  16. How much HP does a Turbo S REALLY have? Dyno Run Video

    I should be more precise. The F1 engine I referred to, is a hybrid engine where the electric motor adds about 200hp according to what I found. Your torque number then lines up nicely. With respect to the gearing. It's been about 50 years since I had any courses in statics and dynamics...
  17. How much HP does a Turbo S REALLY have? Dyno Run Video

    This should be qualified. The engine has to be designed from the get go for the use for which it is intended. There are cases where you want an engine with high torque. An F1 engine generates more horsepower than a caterpillar D11T, 1000 vs 850, but would never work in that application. It...
  18. How much HP does a Turbo S REALLY have? Dyno Run Video

    If the dynamic energy of the car equals the work done by the engine than you could express the P in your equation as Power = Torque * angle traveled / time where the torque and angle traveled are the inputs from the engine. (I think). This would take you back to which combination of torque...
  19. Is it Torque or is it Horsepower?

    Further to an earlier thread here is a table of some different vehicles. What do you think? Is it torque or horsepower. I have ranked them by power to weight (hint). If the numbers are super wrong let me know. Vehicle Base Price USD Engine Vehicle Weight in lbs Horsepower...
  20. How much HP does a Turbo S REALLY have? Dyno Run Video

    A small point. A motor creates a force in the form of torque.
