      Kia Stinger GT I think is the 'cheapest performance sedan'

      0-100 in 4.9s

        Gotta say, having driven both a Model S and this, combustion truly feels like last century technology. Electric torque response is off the hook.

        •  

          Not denying that at all.
          But claiming the Model 3 is the cheapest performance sedan on the market is not accurate. Stinger GT undercuts it, but the margin is not that great.

          Once you factor in overall cost of ownership, the Kia Stinger GT and Model 3 Extended Range would cost you very similar amounts (see Page 2 for my rough maths)

          • +2 votes

            @E5TOQUE: The Stinger may beat the cheapest Model 3, two wheel drive SR+ 0-100 by a small margin but not at intermediate speeds, 30-60, 40-60 etc.

            The Stinger being an outright performance car while the Tesla SR+ being Elon’s car for Grandpa.

            •  

              @SamR: Yeah, but the Stinger is a much better for driver engagement, the T3 steers weird and the brakes are really spongy compared to the performance brakes on the Stinger. Plus if you want to be having those big weekend drives where you can find a 100kmh country road and give it everything the range anxiety is going to kick in quickly with the Tesla. The Nappa leather and other interior highlights are streets ahead in the Kia and it's also a much larger car.

              If you are all about the daily drive and just like to give it a bit in traffic or whatever though, the Tesla would be pretty hard to go past!

          •  

            @E5TOQUE: Well cheapest performance sedan with a 0-100 time of 3.3 seconds? No all performance sedans are the same.

      •  

        been tossing up the Stinger GT with the T3 for quite a while… while my wallet catches up. both are incredible cars at incredible value.

      •  

        15L per 100km use in a city environment doesn't seem too cheap. Nice looking car though.

      And this thing would be faster in real life than most of the supercars around. How many times are you sitting in a traffic light in your supercar with launch control engaged and engine boost being built up at 4000 rpm? Otherwise by the time your supercar has decided which gear and rpm, Tesla is long gone.

    •  

      Well.. depends how you look at it. For me, 'performance' is more about the feeling when driving, rather than pure speed/acceleration. But it obviously plays a factor.. i.e. a fast Camry does not a performance car make.

      you need to get into contact with tesla, write them an email

      if we can get them to accept crypto for tesla we don't have to pay CGT on the transaction since in australia if you use crypto as a currency it is treated as such

      please send an email to sales asking them when they'll accept crypto as that what everyone is waiting for, it's essentially a +25% discount for crypto buyers - no brainer!

        If you held the crypto for any amount of time before buying the car you still have to treat it as a cgt event and pay tax on any profit you made.

    any one know how much to install a charge station at home?

    •  

      depends on how far from the meter box you're installing it - if it's close, should be a couple of hundred (plus the cost of the charger)

      •  

        The charger is included with purchase of the S and X. Not sure about the model 3 though

        •  

          The 3 doesn't come with one anymore. Most install quotes I've seen around between $500-1000, depends on how difficult the install is.

              @LukeOz83: Similar to the Apple/Samsung thing, there will be a time when many of us will already have a charger and don't want to be lumped with having another one bundled with each car. The $700 Tesla charger is one of the cheapest on the market.

            @evorgevol: Not included anymore. About $700 plus install fee. Depends on a few factors like cable length

        •  

          The wall charger, which can do fast charging (11kw), is not included with the Model 3 anymore. But there is a portable charger which connects to both 10A and 15A sockets and can charge at 2kw or 3kw.

          •  

            @realrift: The portable charger comes with a 10A and a 15A plugs which charge at 8A and 12A respectively

    •  

      about $500 in 2018 (this was the electrician fee for installation)

    •  

      A bit under $800 for the wall charger and the cost for an electrician to wire it in.

    •  

      Do they have a setup yet where the car acts as a battery for the home?

      •  

        No, can't supply the home from the car battery yet

    •  

      you really should get a tesla wall + 8kw solar + a charging station

      say around 15k

      Apparently BYD will be releasing a sub $35k AUD car into Aus early next year.

      I'm a little skeptical, but if that happens, Tesla will probably have to drop prices further.

      •  

        BYD?

      •  

        some true competition against the MG ZS EV, really looking forward to it.

        •  

          although the MG ZS has a great price

          it's a poorly design EV, well it isn't even an designed EV, they just threw an EV engine into an ICE car

          which means the thing is heavy, inefficient and has incredibly poor range

          if all you need it for is to go down to the local shops then maybe but it isn't capable of replacing an ICE car - for that you need to get something that is properly designed like a tesla

          MG could be worth considering when they design an affordable EV from the ground up

          •  

            @desync: yeah, it has a lot of cons, but that price is a huge pro.

            All i need is a car that comfortably handles my daily work, weekend groceries commute… and living in a city, even 100km daily range would be > 2x safety factor. Road trips or anything like that would be done on rental cars. Unfortunately the government is too progress-averse to attract the small European city EVs (like VW ID3).

      •  

        Comparing BYD to Tesla, really.
        Like comparing Kai to BMW.
        Don't expect 0-100 under 8-9s.
        Range will be under 200miles at that price.

        •  

          The BYD Han has a target range of 600km (idk what that is in miles). And the target 0-100 is 3.3 seconds.

          Again, I'm skeptical they can get it here at the price they say that quickly, but if they do, Tesla will need to drop their prices.

          Also, that comparison isn't the flex you think it is.

          For example, the Kia Stinger is arguably better than the BMW M3/4/5, in some cases at less than half the price. Sure the BMW is a few 10ths of a second faster to 100k's. But the stinger has better fuel efficiency, comes standard with more features, cheaper to maintain etc.

          The only thing keeping BMW prices higher than the likes of Kia is that there is still a large group of badge snobs around.

              @Naigrabzo: What you want is self driving cars, not Tesla's autopilot, which is nowhere close enough. Self driving car is an extremely difficult problem and is unsolved at the moment. We will probably have to wait for quite a while for that.

            @flaminglemon: Autopilot is not self driving car. It's not good enough at the moment, and it's extremely dangerous if you let disabled people use it without the full control of the car.

          https://www.energy.gov.au/data/electricity-generation

          “Fossil fuels contributed 79% of total electricity generation in 2019, including coal (56%), gas (21%) and oil (2%).

          Renewables contributed 21% of total electricity generation in 2019, specifically hydro (5%), wind (7%), and solar (7%). The share of renewable energy generation increased from 19% in 2018.“

          If 56% of the electricity in the network comes from coal, then your electric car runs mainly on coal. Like others are saying below, shifting to electric cars without changing the generation method just shifts the problem.

            @Ugly: if you are going to buy a tesla then you have to be a bit dense to not aslo get

            a capable solar system + power wall + charger

            with a modest investment you not only get an EV but you also wont have to pay an electricity or fuel bill ever again

            which is one of the biggest draws for getting a tesla in the first place

            so your coal electricity argument doesn't pass the sniff test because it completely ignores context

          •  

            @Ugly: Imagine thinking private charging via direct solar in your own home (where 75% of EVs are charged) was in any way related to the concocted demand built for coal fired power stations by state-industry elites decades ago. How thick would you have to be?

            Or not knowing that Tesla Australia buys 100% green power for public charging?

            You'd have to be pretty idiotic to confuse all those things.

        Majority of Australian Rapid Chargers use renewable generated electricity, including the free ones. Coal fired electric cars pollute less than any equivalent fossil car.

        •  

          There was a publication by European Environment Agency (EEA Report No 13/2018), EV charged by a coal generated electricity pollutes more than an ICE car.

          We would need to solve our generation, otherwise switching to EV would not reduce the total emissions, but would at least move it out of populated areas.

              @Steptoe: Do you have a link, would be interesting to have a look. So far, I'd trust the reports of the European Environment Agency, they are certainly not biased against renewables and still reported EV/coal combination to pollute more than an ICE. If you have reports from more reputable sources, I'd be very interested to have a look.

          •  

            @DmytroP: This EEA report looks like the one you are referring to. With respect to climate change impact it's quoting figures from a 2012 study.

            • The comparison is between a first generation Nissan Leaf and efficient ICE cars - Mercedes A 170 petrol engine and of Mercedes A 160 and 180 diesel vehicles. that's a fair comparison, but we can't generalise the results to all ICE cars vs all EVs.

            • ICE Vehicles will have improved a little in the intervening years, but Battery Electric Vehicles have improved a lot. I would expect an up to date comparison to narrow the gap or even tilt in favour of EVs.

            • It's a life cycle analysis i.e. it includes the environmental impacts of manufacturing and disposal of the vehicle as well as fueling the vehicle in during the lifecycle. A life cycle analysis is the right way to compare in my opinion.

            • The lifecycle used was 150,000km which might be normal for Europe, but seems low for Australia. Results will differ for longer life cycles.

            • The climate change impact of the BEV was lower than the ICEVs when calculating with the European electricity mix (which includes a lot of nuclear, hydro and renewable electricity generation). Right now we are still around 80% fossil fuel for electricity generation in Australia i.e nowhere close to the European electricity mix so those figures are not directly relevant.

            •  

              @trongy: It's all very valid points, but it's the only reasonably recent reputable report I found. It was really a surprise for me, EV charged from coal pollutes more, I assumed the opposite before.

              Another recent Australian report from Transport Energy/Emission Research, compared the average emission from EV and ICE cars distribution in Australia (I think also from 2018), with 181 g CO2/km for EV and the average Australian ICE car emission of 257 g CO2/km.

              Looks like it's again the comparison of Leaf like cars (given the small battery size), with larger cars in Australia, I don't think it's correct. Another unexpected conclusion - looks like hybrids really pollute less than EV using the Australian electricity mix: even the bigger Hybrid Camry or rav4 have emissions are around 100-120 g CO2/km. We really need to fix our generation in addition to switching to EV.

        • +1 vote

          From the European Environment Agency report:

          The largest potential reduction in GHG emissions between a BEV and an ICEV occurs in the in-use phase, which can more than offset the higher impact of the raw materials extraction and production phases. However, the extent to which the GHG emissions advantage is realised during the in-use stage of BEVs depends strongly on the electricity mix. BEVs charged with electricity generated from coal currently have higher life-cycle emissions than ICEVs, whereas the life-cycle emissions of a BEV could be almost 90 % lower than an equivalent ICEV (IEA, 2017a) using electricity generated from wind power. In future, with greater use of lower carbon electricity in the European mix the typical GHG emissions saving of BEVs relative to ICEVs will increase.

              @Andy99: It's a citation from the European Environment Agency report, BEV - Battery Electric Vehicle, GHG - greenhouse gases, ICEV - Internal Combustion Engine Vehicle.

              The report is quite interesting, it was very surprising for me the Tesla (or other EV) charged from coal-generated electricity pollutes more than the petrol car of a similar size. A very good indication, it's equally important to solve the generation as to switch to electric cars.
