    Oh let's not forget....these same people who get giddy over electric cars also think eventually Harley bike guys are going to want electric motorcycles. And they really think that!!:iyfyus.jpg:

    Did you notice how he inflated the Tesla Model 3 performance the same way he does it with CO2 ?
    0 to 100 in 4 seconds.. 250+ mph top end..And that is the base model.
    225 Kilometers per hour became 250+ miles per hour and the 5.1 seconds 0 to 100 km per hour acc. of that Tesla is only 4 seconds according to him.
    They should remake this movie and OldRocks should play that part:

    If you're going to make up a fictional conveyance ... you should at least give it some cool powers ...

    Unless you run the heater, then it's 400 miles per charge
    AC? Same.
    Lights? cut down on that milage?
    Radio? Same.
    Kids watching videos in the back? It counts against the milage.

    Or worse, trying to stay warm while being stuck on the road during a snow storm....Like in this year in March during Europe`s cold snap and the Military was sent to rescue drivers. If you were in an electric car you would be a popsicle by the time they get to you. Where I live there are many roads where it`s over 400 miles just to get to the next gas station but that`s no problem in a Ford E150 van and dual tanks

    Hey dumb fuck, the Roadster 2 is not the same vehicle as the Tesla 3. Not only that;

    2018 Tesla Model 3 Dual Motor Performance Review: First Taste - Motor Trend

    Tesla's acceleration claims (which we've repeatedly matched or beaten with other Tesla vehicles) state the Model 3 Dual Motor Performance scats to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. A traction-limited rear-wheel-drive BMW M3 Competition pack and Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio we tested did 4.3 and 3.9 seconds, respectively, and the less powerful but AWD Audi S4 managed 4.2. In a tweet, Musk suggested that tires even grippier than this car's Michelin Pilot Sport 4S rubber (235/35ZR20 ) might whittle this to 3.3—but also put a nick in the car's 310-mile range.

    With a top end of 155 mph. That is the Tesla 3 Performance edition. Fast, but not anywhere near as fast as the Roadster 2. And note that Motortrend states that they match or exceed the claims when they test the Tesla's.

    What a bunch of liars. So link to where the heater significantly changes the mileage. Yes, cold weather does cut down the range. But it does the same for ICE's because of the slower traffic.
