No other EV can use a supercharger, so don't see how that is anyone else but Tesla's problem..?Sure, but still less than the driver wanted/expected... that's my issue here... overselling by Tesla and 'tesloids' that will harm the adoption of electric vehicles.
Well initially it would be anything from 0-50kW based on the SOC of its battery. About 5 minutes after that tweet he would have dropped to 60kW (so the other car would then get access to up to 60kW if it wanted it) and then after a further 10 minutes he'd have dropped to 50kW leaving 70kW for the other car.So question is, what charge rate did second car achieve? ~21kW like my Birmingham experience?
70kW is exactly what the driver should have expected. It's the maximum rate at which you can charge a Model S when its battery is at 55%. The other car at the SC was irrelevant to his charge rate.Sure, but still less than the driver wanted/expected... that's my issue here... overselling by Tesla and 'tesloids' that will harm the adoption of electric vehicles.
I understand the theory but do we have any evidence to support that? My experience (and that from some German drivers I met in Spain recently) is very different at ~21kW.Well initially it would be anything from 0-50kW based on the SOC of its battery.
It's a game they all play: https://speakev.com/threads/the-30-or-20-minute-charge-myth-time-to-get-real.4441/#post-53253What do e.g. Nissan say about the speed of rapid charging a Leaf, and is it true in the real world? (that's not rhetorical; I am genuinely interested to know how they position it)
@mgboyes be carful to avoid the transition from lunch time to tea time at that hotel because service drops off a cliff. Also allow 40 minutes if traveling in from the M5 motorway (I was in brum again recently and it was very slow).I'll be at the Hyatt in Birmingham tomorrow lunchtime though so fingers crossed there'll be someone else there and I can get some data. Not sure what my wife will say if I decline to go inside for lunch because I have to stay in the car and video the charging session though
Correct, but just the sort of thing a judge (human) will question when they review it during the class actions... the very fact a Model S owner can question this tells you something is wrong in the data being given to customers.Just a reminder that the human eye / visual processing is really bad at discerning between shallow curves and straight lines, because a huge part of how vision works is about spotting patterns
