Quote from: wunwinglow on July 27, 2017, 11:52:26 amThe crucial thing is will these ecectrickery vehicles be big enough to carry my 1/4 scale models to the field?😮
Quote from: FrankS on July 27, 2017, 12:18:36 pmhttps://www.tesla.com/en_GB/modelx might do, but this probably would http://www.mitsubishi-cars.co.uk/outlander/explore-phev.aspx?gclid=Cj0KCQjwnubLBRC_ARIsAASsNNnJL0Y-lnZGg9jZeswVGJYhN05BvwNwYtXkbbmW-52KJR2mno74rtoaArCPEALw_wcB or https://www.nissan.co.uk/vehicles/new-vehicles/e-nv200.html
Quote from: Michael_Rolls on July 27, 2017, 14:37:15 pmI see that the Tesla claims a range of 351 miles from its 100KWh battery, whilst the Outlander claims 33 miles from its 9.8KWh battery. OK<,so the Outlander is a hybrid, but 33 miles? Looks like they are missing a trick or two. How come the Tesla can claim such a tremendous range, far more, as far as I am aware, than any other electric on the market?Mike

Quote from: FrankS on July 27, 2017, 15:39:05 pmThe Mitsubishi battery is a 1/10th the capacity 9.8 kwh vs 100 kwh than the Tesla one, and a bit heavier and less aerodynamic, but it has a petrol engine for the range. The first Leafs came out with a 18 kwh battery and a range of under 100 miles, they've now upgraded to a larger capacity battery and claiming upto 200 miles.
Quote from: Michael_Rolls on July 27, 2017, 17:51:31 pmAnd presumably the larger capacity batteries will take longer to charge? What is the relevance of teh aerodynamics of a battery? Is it out in the slipstream?Mike
Quote from: paulinfrance on July 27, 2017, 19:16:25 pmI sat in a Tesla last year, 100.000€ for that load of crap no thanks, f***k the end of the world, I am keepingmy diesel, it will probably make the world end quicker by 0.1 milliseconds,,,

Quote from: SMF on July 28, 2017, 07:21:49 amAt last somebody with the balls to say it ass it is.I also will never own a scalectrix car. Big changes need to be made in everyting involved with this idea before it becomes anywhere near practical.
Quote from: FrankS on July 28, 2017, 08:35:46 am23 years ago rc electric flight was very niche and glow ruled, many said that electric would never catch on.
Quote from: FrankS on July 28, 2017, 15:32:05 pmOr next year one of these https://www.jaguar.co.uk/jaguar-range/i-pace-concept-car/index.html?cm_mmc=PPC_Google-_-Jaguar_UK-_-PN_ALON_EXA_I-PACE_2-_-jaguar+i+pace+range&gclid=CjwKEAjwwevLBRCGy-Sp-fDKjF8SJACpwCb3sLdOLoysP_DzedVYwFuHjiwTrBGXU0PEnW9eHTTNrxoCpWTw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CPqS5-yXrNUCFQ6IUQodHLgMBg, but 400 HP and 700 Nm or torque will mean the performance isn't up there with the Audi W12
Quote from: FrankS on July 28, 2017, 20:31:34 pmMike these are possible if there was the political will, and they are saying 40 mins for an 80% charge not 90 mins, tesla say 75 mins to 100% with a suitable charge station.so the hybrids will switch to electric running then and use the engine when on a long run.
Quote from: itsme on July 29, 2017, 07:41:49 amI think they are looking at the wrong culprits. Taxis and buses are huge polluters. I agree that a total ban on diesels in town centres would be beneficial, but you would have to include lorries, taxis and buses in that. Also, it is all weather dependant. Out in the suburbs and country the breeze will clear the atmosphere, only problem would be a lack of wind. And we know that Britain is a very windless country, dont we?
Quote from: paulinfrance on July 29, 2017, 10:12:46 amWhy can't they just filter the Diesels exhaust's, it's been nearly 50 years since a man was put on the moon, and diesels aren't exactly rocket science,,
Quote from: itsme on July 29, 2017, 10:18:14 amthey are fitting some buses with particulate filters. I agree, its not something too difficult.
Quote from: paulinfrance on July 29, 2017, 12:00:33 pmIt's a problem of the younger generation just sitting on their ar***s using what our generation invented, it's about time they got their finger out and invented something,,
Quote from: paulinfrance on July 28, 2017, 16:22:11 pm How can a 'sports car' be a 5 seater ?, as for 250 miles on a tesla, I don't want to stop over 5 times to go to London from my place with a 100.000€ car, for that price I want a plane !.
Quote from: itsme on July 29, 2017, 20:21:11 pmAnd my caravan? What does that do to the mix?Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk
Quote from: lanicopter on July 29, 2017, 19:38:56 pmConsider a bus ... 52 people on a smokey old diesel is less polluting than 52 people driving their own cars.
Quote from: itsme on July 30, 2017, 07:19:45 amNow there's an idea. A trailer full of spare battery power...Sent from my SM-A300FU using Tapatalk
Quote from: FrankS on July 29, 2017, 21:46:36 pmNow the caravan manufactures could add extra batteries which could be used to power the caravan or send power to the car for more range.
