Electric cars are making big waves in the automobile world. These noise-free, pollution-free and high-performance vehicles are expected to make their I.C. engine counterparts obsolete by 2025. This video will unveil the hidden technologies behind the Tesla Model S, which recently became the world’s fastest accelerating car. We will see how electric cars have achieved superior performance by analyzing the technology behind the induction motor, inverter, lithium ion battery power source, regenerative braking and above all, the synchronized vehicle mechanism, in a logical, step-by-step manner. The working and features of Tesla car is explained here with help of animation.

      Model Y is fully electric, so you never need to visit a gas station again. If you charge overnight at home, you can wake up to a full battery every morning. And when you’re on the road, it’s easy to plug in along the way—at any public station or with the Tesla charging network. We currently have over 12,000 Superchargers worldwide, with six new locations opening every week.

      Thank you Sir for your intellectual honesty ... You are the first one who recognizes the superiority of the thermal car over the 100% electric in terms of performance from start to finish ... with a tank filled with gas until its last drop ... or performance is guaranteed and even improved since the mass of the car decreases with the consumption of gasoline ... Which is absolutely not the case with a battery car whose electrons leave, but its mass remains.
      The other serious problem is the maximum performance with a battery when it is charged at 100% acceleration in 3.5 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h for the model 3 performances and less than 3 seconds with the model SP 100 D with a 100 kWh capacity! But much lower when the battery is charged only 10% or 20% and acceleration times are not at all the same ... Moreover it would be really useful to measure concretely what I states how many seconds for the 0 to 100 km / h with the battery charged only at 10% or 20% before going to do a quick charge with a supercharger!

      We understand immediately that the bike has a small autonomy in km ... more with the Zoe autonomy ... and not badly seen the capacity of the battery and the volume of water of the pool in autonomy for the Tesla model SP 100 D!

      When the battery discharges and the volume of water drops sharply in the pool .... the pressure exerted at the bottom of the pool is greatly reduced ... The flow of water that escapes in liters per second is equivalent to the Tesla's Amperes Seconds or Coulomb, at the beginning when the battery is charged at 100% the number of amperes per second is maximum ....

      You don't need brakes for regenerative breaking, you break with the motor (which is a generator when regenerative breaking is active).

      Rivian's liquid-cooled battery pack boasts nearly 8,000 individual cells.

      Automotive News enjoyed a recent opportunity to check out the Rivian engineering and design center. The publication also shared some words with the company's communications chief Michael McHale.

      With the launch of its R1T electric pickup truck planned for late 2020, Rivian clearly has much work ahead of it. However, according to Automotive News (AN), the automaker seems to be making the right choices to move toward its goal successfully.

      Gentlemen TESLA engineers ... You claim to have invented the most advanced futuristic car in the world ... Explain to me why? There is as much difference between the points on your curve ... and the results obtained by the two Norwegians on the Tesla P 85 D? Or are your points on the blue graph wrong ... or are both Norwegians liars?
      Who is right ?
      Can your technicians explain to me the reasons why there are such big differences in autonomy?
      https://www.tesla.com/fr_CH/blog/driving-range-model-s-family?redirect=no

      Looking at the link above the blue Tesla graphic model S P 85 D

      At the speed of: 75 mph (120 km/h) corresponds an autonomy of : 240 Miles (384 km) Product: Speed ​​x Autonomy = 120 km/h x 384 km = 46.080

      At the speed of: 80 mph (128 km/h) corresponds an autonomy of: 225 Miles (360 km) Product: Speed ​​x Autonomy = 128 km/h x 360 km = 46.080

      At a speed of: 40 mph (64 km/h) there is a range of: 450 Miles (720 km) Product: Speed ​​x Autonomy = 64 km/h x 720 km = 46.080

      The product of two variables (speed x autonomy) = constant!

      Hyperbolic function?

      https://www.quattroruote.it/news/eco_news/2015/08/25/tesla_model_s_record_mondiale_per_l_elettrica_di_musk_fa_728_km_con_una_carica_.html#

      World record for two Norwegians speed V = 39.6 km/h corresponding to an autonomy of: 728 km see the link above!

      Why is the product: Speed ​​x Autonomy so unfavorable? to the results obtained with the blue graph Model S P 85 D? = 39.6 km/h x 728 km = 28.828 << 46.080 ! !

      The two Norwegians have performed a real test: Battery fully charged up to fully discharged battery by measuring the actual km traveled!

      Above, on the other hand, it seems to me that the autonomies have been calculated by measuring the consumption in km traveled for each kWh consumed .... And simply deducing it after autonomy.

      depending on the battery capacity ... which is not the same thing! Or am I wrong ?


      Signori ingegneri TESLA ... pretendete aver inventato l'auto futuristica più avanzata del mondo ... Spiegatemi perché? C'è così tanta differenza tra i punti del vostro grafico ... e i risultati ottenuti dai due norvegesi sulla Tesla P 85 D? O i vostri punti sul grafico blu sono sbagliati ... o sono entrambi bugiardi i norvegesi ?
      Chi ha ragione?

      I vostri Tecnici possono spiegarmi le ragioni per cui ci sono cosi grosse differenze di autonomie ?
      https://www.tesla.com/fr_CH/blog/driving-range-model-s-family?redirect=no

      Guardando il link qui sopra della Tesla grafico color blu Model S P 85 D

      Alla velocità di : 75 mph ( 120 km/h ) corrisponde un 'autonomia di : 240 Miles ( 384 km ) Prodotto: Velocità x Autonomia = 120 km/h x 384 km = 46.080

      Alla velocità di : 80 mph ( 128 km/h ) corrisponde un' autonomia di : 225 Miles (360 km ) Prodotto: Velocità x Autonomia = 128 km/h x 360 km = 46.080

      Alla velocità di : 40 mph ( 64 km/h ) corrisponde un'autonomia di : 450 Miles ( 720 km ) Prodotto: Velocità x Autonomia = 64 km/h x 720 km = 46.080

      Il prodotto di due variabili (velocità x autonomia) = costante !

      Funzione iperbolica?

      https://www.quattroruote.it/news/eco_news/2015/08/25/tesla_model_s_record_mondiale_per_l_elettrica_di_musk_fa_728_km_con_una_carica_.html#

      Record mondiale per due Norvegesi velocità V = 39,6 km/h corrispondente ad un' autonomia di : 728 km vedere il link qui sopra !

      Come mai il prodotto : Velocità x Autonomia è cosi sfavorevole ? ai risultati ottenuti con il grafico blu Model S P 85 D ? = 39,6 km/h x 728 km = 28.828 << 46.080 ! !

      I due Norvegesi hanno eseguito un Test reale : Batteria carica fino ad Batteria totalmente scarica misurandone i km realmente percorsi !

      Sopra invece mi sembra che le autonomie siano state calcolate misurandone i consumi in km percorsi per ogni kWh consumato....E deducendone semplicemente dopo l'autonomia

      in funzione della capacità della batteria...Che non è la stessa cosa ! O mi sbaglio ?

      Messieurs les ingénieurs de la société TESLA... Vous prétendez avoir inventé la voiture futuriste la plus avancée du monde... Expliquez-moi donc pourquoi ? IL y a autant de différence entre les points sur votre courbe... et les résultats obtenus par les deux Norvégiens sur la Tesla P 85 D ? Ou vos points sur le graphe bleu sont faux.... ou les deux Norvégiens sont des menteurs ?
      Qui a raison ?
      Vos techniciens peuvent-ils m'expliquer les raisons pour lesquelles il existe de telles différences d'autonomie?
      https://www.tesla.com/fr_CH/blog/driving-range-model-s-family?redirect=no

      En regardant le lien au-dessus du modèle graphique bleu Tesla S P 85 D

      À la vitesse de: 120 km/h, correspond une autonomie de: 240 Miles (384 km) Produit: Vitesse x autonomie = 120 km/h x 384 km = 46.080

      À la vitesse de: 128 km/h correspond une autonomie de: 225 Miles (360 km) Produit: Vitesse x autonomie = 128 km/h x 360 km = 46.080

      À une vitesse de: 64 km/h (40 mph), il y a une plage de: 450 Miles (720 km). Produit: Vitesse x Autonomie = 64 km/h x 720 km = 46.080

      Le produit de deux variables (vitesse x autonomie) = constante !

      Fonction Hyperbolique ?

      https://www.quattroruote.it/news/eco_news/2015/08/25/tesla_model_s_record_mondiale_per_l_elettrica_di_musk_fa_728_km_con_una_carica_.html#

      Record du monde pour deux Norvégiennes, vitesse V = 39,6 km/h, ce qui correspond à une autonomie de: 728 km. Voir le lien ci-dessus!

      Pourquoi le produit: Speed ​​x Autonomy est-il si défavorable? aux résultats obtenus avec le graphe bleu Model S P 85 D? = 39,6 km/h x 728 km = 28.828 << 46.080 ! !

      Les deux Norvégiens ont effectué un véritable test: une batterie complètement chargée jusqu'à une batterie complètement déchargée en mesurant le kilométrage réel parcouru!

      Ci-dessus, par contre, il me semble que les autonomies ont été calculées en mesurant la consommation en km parcouru pour chaque kWh consommé ... Et en déduisant simplement celle-ci après l'autonomie

      en fonction de la capacité de la batterie ... ce qui n'est pas la même chose! Ou est-ce que je me trompe?

      Merci Monsieur pour votre honnêteté intellectuelle... Vous êtes le premier qui reconnaît la supériorité de la voiture thermique sur le 100 % électrique en matière de performance du début à la fin... avec un réservoir rempli d'essence jusqu'à sa dernière goutte... ou les performances sont garanties et même améliorées puisque la masse de la voiture diminue avec la consommation de l'essence... Ce qui n'est absolument pas le cas avec une voiture à batterie dont les électrons partent, mais sa masse demeure.
      L' autre grave problème ce sont les performances maximales avec une batterie quand elle est chargée à 100 % accélération en 3,5 secondes de 0 à 100 km/h pour le modèle 3 performances et moins de 3 secondes avec le modèle S P 100 D avec une capacité de 100 kWh ! Mais nettement inférieures lors ce que la batterie n'est chargée qu'à 10 % ou 20 % et les temps d'accélérations ne sont plus du tout les mêmes... D'ailleurs il serait vraiment utile de mesurer concrètement ce que j'affirme combien de secondes pour le 0 à 100 km/h avec la batterie chargée uniquement à 10 % ou 20 % avant d'aller faire une recharge rapide avec un superchargeur !
      https://cleantechnica.com/2018/08/20/mountain-pass-performance-tests-tesla-model-3-power-at-different-states-of-charge-cleantechnica-exclusive/
      Voici ci-dessus expliquée la réalité physique de ce qui se passe avec la batterie et c'est complexe et pas simple à comprendre pour les non initiés !
      Étant donné que personne je dis bien personne malgré les innombrables appels de lecteurs de YouTube n'a voulu me répondre ou m'expliquer ce délicat problème y compris tous les ingénieurs ou physiciens que l'on trouve en FRANCE pays de DESCARTES... et de Blaise Pascal... J'hallucine !
      Je vais vous expliquer moi à ma façon la méthodologie... patience ! par une métaphore...
      Vous avez un LAVABO...oh ! qu'il est beau le LAVABO... de Vincent LAGAF...rempli d'eau...Une baignoire elle aussi remplie d'eau...de même qu'une piscine remplie d'eau...Ce volume d'eau représente la capacité du LAVABO qui serait un vélo électrique...la capacité de la baignoire qui serait la Renault Zoé...et pour finir la piscine qui serait elle la Tesla Modèle S’P100 D !
      On comprend immédiatement que le vélo a une petite autonomie en km...davantage avec la Zoé d'autonomie...et pas mal vu la capacité de la batterie et le volume d'eau de la piscine en autonomie pour la Tesla modèle S P 100 D ! Le volume d'eau c'est la capacité de la batterie...La pression de l'eau représente la différence de potentiel ou la tension électrique des différentes batteries...
      Quand la batterie se décharge et que le volume d'eau baisse fortement dans la piscine....la pression qui s'exerce au fond de la piscine est fortement diminuée...Le débit de l'eau qui s'échappe en litres par secondes est équivalent aux Ampères secondes ou Coulomb de la Tesla, au début quand la batterie est chargée à 100% le nombre d'ampères par seconde est maximal....Comme le débit de l'eau en litres par secondes avec la piscine remplie d'eau....Mais maintenant et c'est de la physique....Vous ne pouvez pas avec la batterie les 3/4 vide...avoir les centaines d'ampères par secondes qui gavent votre moteur électrique pour refaire un démarrage canon de votre fusée écologique...exactement comme les litres d'eau par seconde qui vident votre piscine lorsqu'elle est elle aussi les 3/4 vide !

      Problem with LI-ion packs is that without a smart balancing algorithm your entire pack can store less potential energy. along with the fact that lower quality cells might end up "dead" within a pack due to high power consumption/heat etc and render the entire pack useless (depending on the BMS)
      another big problem is that LI-ion cells are extremely flammable and a tiny puncture can cause a chain reaction that would engulf the entire car on fire.
      To overcome this safety issue, Tesla will have to introduce a flexible material that would disperse heat and shock between cells making it less volume/power efficient.
