Published on September 18th, 2018 | by Michael Barnard

The cost of maintaining Miami as a modern, well-serviced city with great beaches will skyrocket while the economy of the state and the city will be massively challenged and possibly collapsing.

Jaguar I-PACE Efficiency

Jaguar Highlights Electric Car Efficiency By Crossing The Channel To Brussels

Published on September 17th, 2018 | by Nicolas Zart

One of the many reasons we love electric vehicles (EV) is, presumably, because we love efficiency. Compared to the woefully pushy, but highly asthmatic, internal combustion engine (ICE), the electric motor "suffers" from the opposite problem — it's too darn efficient. In fact, it's so efficient that it needs to tune down. A gasoline engine requires better airflow, less friction, again and again just to make it 40% efficient (and only within a restricted RPM range) whereas an electric motor is easily 85% efficient. Must we go on? Jaguar just showed how efficient the electric drivetrain is... Read More

How To Run The Model 3 Through An Automated Carwash

Published on September 16th, 2018 | by Kyle Field

The first time I went through the carwash with my Tesla Model 3, I couldn't figure out how to put the car in neutral, so I had to suffer through an embarrassing ordeal of stopping the machine and starting it again several times before they just told me to put it in drive and walked me through it. Intent on not doing that again, I went out and figured out how to wash the Model 3 properly... Read More
