China has become a powerhouse in electric vehicles. Its automaker BYD recently topped Tesla in global EV sales, with Elon Musk warning of Chinese carmakers, “If there are no trade barriers established, they will pretty much demolish most other car companies in the world. They’re extremely good.”...
It ain’t a USCSB video, but this gives a tl;dr about what caused the derailment a couple years ago that led to the 7000-series trains to be pulled.
According to shareholder letters, Rivian plans to allow charging of electric vehicles of other brands in the second half of the year.
Or i just pissed off someone very dedicated .
The Cybertruck’s range lags behind its competitors. A dual-motor Rivian R1T achieved 390 miles in our test (albeit on more efficient tires) and our long-term Ford F-150 Lightning Lariat hit 345 miles.
The consumption data is even more interesting. While testing the Rivian, the R1T used 42.3 kWh of energy to travel 100 miles, and the Lightning used 43.7 kWh per 100 miles. Despite being shaped like a giant brutalist triangle, the Cybertruck used 45.1 kWh of energy, making it slightly less efficient in an apples-to-apples comparison
I’m glad they’re publishing average consumption stats too. Compared to crossovers it’s a substantial hike in power consumption but also different shape and class of vehicle and whatnot.
I’d be curious if they end up doing a comparison with and without the tonneau cover. I’d guess the gap in power consumption between the R1T and CT would widen a fair bit more. Still seems like the R1T is the truck to beat.
It’s especially impressive since the R1T came first.
I’d be curious for a comparison with and without the tonneau cover since I’d imagine a fair bit of usage will be with the cover rolled up.
For the first time, consumers will have a vast pool of used EVs available for purchase. Will hesitant drivers buy them?...
