Scotty, also nobody warns you about the electromagnetic fields are actually radiation that can cause cancer similar to being in schools under power lines

Electric cars are simple why are you making it sound so complicated when its not. If you ever own a hobby grade Radio control car then basically you have all you need to know unless your spreed control is not working then all you have to do is replace it i doubt very highly mechanics like you and me will not be replacing chips or processors in fact the whole speed control will get replaced. Some Old school mechanics fear the EV cars but i understand them perfectly and they are far less complicated the an internal combustion engine.

What isnt talked about is the insurance for a Tesla is higher than your normal insurance on your gas powered car. A model x runs about 4,000 a year.

If the battery is properly insulated cold weather should not be a problem for a Tesla.

Living in Portland OR, leased a Ford Ford CMax Energi. Wife and I agree best car ever for that application. 80-90% local driving below 40mph within it's 20 MI range +500-600 miles on long road trips. Excellent car and technology. Would work perfectly in Ensenada BC as well... Excepting the roads or lack thereof would quickly destroy it! Grew up a gear head, but still looking forward to fully electric when it reaches the capability and infrastructure of ICE.

Trucks can be put under quite a load. Precisely how can an electric truck carry a heavy load interstate? Such a truck would require either broadcast, third rail, or replacement battery power unless you have time to recharge batteries...

DC battery to AC motors not accomplished with “transformers” this is done by a Inverter and they are more than 95% efficient thus 5%+- loss not 30% as stated. This guy proves a little knowledge can be dangerous. May want to spend less time on inaccurate vids and a little time on home maintenance.....just saying.

In my experience, range anxiety goes away and is replaced by the joy of a full "tank" every morning. In my case a free tank - solar panels. No shivering at a gas pump in the winter. On the other hand, if you can have only one car and cannot charge at home, an EV may be a poor choice. Finally, non-Teslas still face a byzantine third-party charger situation. An EV as a second car in a garage will almost always be a good choice.

This man does realize they're about to hit the 400 mile range mark right ? Not simple Gas cars 30,000 moving parts, electric cars 10. You decided a man who makes all his money working on these gas cars that ALWAYS break or an electric with a million + battery life.

Most buyers of all-electric cars know exactly how to use them. They know how far they're going and how to keep the battery charged enough to more than cover the distance they need to travel. It's not rocket science!

Scotty is just being bias and doesn’t talk about the benefits of having an all electric car.The benefits of having an all electric car are for example less parts to manufacture.That means cars are easier to make, cheaper to make, easier to fix cuz they have less parts that can break down over time and it will lower air pollution.
For example Tesla a all electric car company that makes the safeties cars on the roads with all the cameras it has around the car to detect it’s surroundings.
For Example if someone is crossing the road and the driver doesn’t see them the car will stope by it self.
Tesla cars have autonomous driving too for long trips if you don’t want to drive.
Autónomos cars are the way to go
to make safer roads in the future.
Things that Scotty is right about is that battery’s are not good in the cold and that’s true.
But not for long because electric car companies are working to solve that problem to make battery’s more reliable in cold temperatures.
The other problem that electric cars have right now is that the battery can runout of electricity if you don’t listen to the car when it tells you that the battery is low and you can get stuck on the roads.
But that is not really a big problem because electric car companies are going to start putting more electric car stations around the world. So if your car dies on the road is your fault for being irresponsible.
Same thing with gasoline cars when it runs out of gasoline it can get stock on the road and that’s not all the problems a gasoline car can have for it to turn on. For example blown engine,
broken transmission, bad spark plugs, gears breaking, driveshaft, Exhaust pipe some cars, radiator to cool off the engine, gasoline pump, battery doesn’t work you can’t turn on the car, engine oil, pistons, starter solenoid to turn on car. All of this things got to work for a gasoline car to turn on and that’s not all.
Things that Scotty can’t fight against are that electric cars are the way to go for the future of the earth and humans.

Love my 2012 Volt. Switching to electric is a bit of a learning curve but its been a great vehicle and overall better then an ice version of the same thing. Almost pay nothing in gas and maintenance compared to what I had before and I got it used for about 11k. Id love a Tesla but this is way cheaper for now.

I don't understand your point about jump starting gas cars being an advantage. Jump-starting a car is a solution to a problem that is unique to gas cars. With a gas car, the problem is that you run out of battery so your starter doesn't work. An electric car doesn't need a starter to turn on, it simply just turns on. Running out of battery is equivalent to running out of gas. You can't jump start a car that's run out of gas.

I’m just seeing this episode now in April so sorry for my tardiness. Anyway, Scotty, years ago I read BMW’s X6 Hybrid has a system where a full size V8 gas engine drives a generator that powers the electric motors at each wheel. Very complicated and very heavy but also very responsive. The reviews called it a 3 ton sports car. Oh yeah, very expensive too.

I have a Peugeot 3008 (2014) Diesel-electric hybrid. The electrical motor drives the rear wheels and the 2l diesel drives the front wheels. Both systems work as required so sometimes it is fw drive or rw drive or 4w drive as required. It can drive on battery alone but only for about a mile. This is only useful for car parks. The main use it to make the diesel engine more efficient. It pulls off in electric and kicks in the diesel at about 20 mph, it uses the electric motor to smooth out the auto gear change box. It also makes sitting in jams and stop/start very efficient as it pulls off in electric. Compared to the 3008 2l diesel of a similar age I get 10mpg more with the hybrid. I bought it second hand as it cost £1000 more than the non-hybrid model. So far after 80000 miles, it has been a great choice.

If it was a tiny diesel engine, it would be the best compromise because diesel engines like constant speed and last way longer.

You can recharge a Tesla or any electric ⚡️ car. with a portable battery 🔋 and or a small portable generator just put a hitch on the back & mount a 212cc powered on the back of it to charge while you drive gas, propane or diesel 💁🏻‍♂️⚡️

The world can’t go electric, how would there be a electric engine to move the CAT 797F giant mining dump truck? The world needs to face it, electric won’t power everything, you need a giant Diesel engine that has more power than a electric engine will ever have to move them. They weigh tons and tons

He wrong about quite a few things. Priuses have a 12v battery . If the Hybrid battery fails the car will start no problem. Tesla's retain their value quite well. Of course there will always be exceptions. While I agree the idea of an electric vehicle with a gasoline generator is superior as the hybrid design I think they need to work on that s*** pretty quickly because Tesla's can out drive it even with the backup gasoline. Electric cars charge quicker then he lights on. Of course if you stick it into a 110 outlet it will take quite a while but a 220 dryer plug will give you about 10 ish miles per hour I'll charge. I know Tesla's have a dedicated charger that you can install that gets quite a bit of range. For most people's driving plugging in the car once a week is no problem. My friend got a model 3 long-range Edition and he swears the issues with electric cars are overplayed
