            @DmytroP: Well not according to an Australian study:

            https://thedriven.io/2021/02/12/evs-smash-petrol-cars-on-emi...

            “For each BEV sold, it would immediately provide significant reductions in GHG emissions per passenger vehicle kilometre travelled.It is therefore essential that BEV sales are promoted now to ensure that a significant level of electrification is achieved in 2030in the Australian on-road fleet.

            “The GHG emission benefits of electric vehicles will only increase further over time as the Australian electricity grid becomes decarbonised.”

            • +1 vote

              @realrift: Thanks for the link. Interesting, in this report the GHG emissions to produce the car are very similar, while in others I have seen EVs batteries required quite a bit more resources to build. Looks like this report only took into account cars with 42-50kWh batteries, potentially comparing to less efficient ICE cars used in the European Environment Agency study, this may explain the difference in results.

              Even with this report, the improvement from switching to EV is relatively modest compared to switching to EV + cleaner electricity generation, decarbonisation of our grid is certainly very welcomed.

              Edited: I read the original report, looks like the study compares the current distribution of ICE and EV cars in Australia, not similar cars. Seems to be quite misleading, comparing smaller EV cars with small battery with larger SUVs. In the study, the average battery size was 46kWh with an emission of 181 g CO2/km with the average Australian ICE car emission of 257 g CO2/km.

              The emission of RAV4 is 177 g CO2/km or 116 for hybrid, hybrid Camry is 96 g CO2/km, both less than EV with a small battery charged from AU grid. The obvious conclusion from the report - if we switch to smaller cars, we would reduce the emissions as well.

                @DmytroP: The great thing is we don't have to choose one or the other. In fact we need to pull all levers. So decarbonising the grid, switching to EV and adding roof top solar. Adding just 1.4kw of rooftop solar (nominally dedicated to EV charging) is enough to lower average EV emissions below hybrids.

                • +1 vote

                  @realrift: I completely agree with this, EV may also help to consume the extra solar energy available during the day, solar + EV adoption combined would have the biggest impact.

              •  

                @DmytroP: https://www.carbonbrief.org/factcheck-how-electric-vehicles-...

                This article has quite a few nice graphs, including estimates on carbon emissions from battery production. As can be seen from the article, even factoring in emissions associated with production, the Model 3 with its 75kWh battery is still significantly less polluting than the average Euro car. It gets even better when you factor in that Gigafactory Nevada, which manufactures the batteries, runs on renewables.

                This is because initially, producing an EV leads to higher emissions than producing an ICE car. However, after only a year or two, the lower carbon emissions from driving the EV offsets this initial outlay.

                •  

                  @NotAnExpert4: This article does not contradict the report I posted before, when charged from the low carbon generated grid, EVs are much better than ICEV, the only exception when most of the electricity is generated from coal, like in Australia or China for example.

              •  

                @DmytroP:

                Interesting, in this report the GHG emissions to produce the car are very similar, while in others I have seen EVs batteries required quite a bit more resources to build.

                The article that NotAnExpert4 posted has huge error bars for the emissions involved in battery manufacture. I think the underlying issue is that the battery makers are not making the information publicly available so estimates are based on imprecise assumptions.

                I'm reminded of an article where the author tries to figure out: How Much Lithium is in a Li-Ion Vehicle Battery?. He describes how he arrives at his estimate and the limitations of the available information.

          Majority of Australian Rapid Chargers use renewable generated electricity, including the free ones.

          This may be a dumb question, but how can they say that these chargers only use renewable generated electricity?

          Surely it's just connected to the power grid and uses the power available (56% of which is from coal was stated by someone above)

      Panasonic
      And here is Panasonic, Tesla's long-standing lithium-ion cell supplier for all models, which for a long time was an exclusive partner.
      The Japanese company still is Tesla's most important battery partner, the biggest supplier in terms of volume, engaged in all the cars on the market, and a manufacturing partner at the Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada.

        The Chinese made Model 3 is reported to be using a different battery technology.

        This will be the first significant delivery in Australia of Model 3 cars made in the recently completed Shanghai giga-factory, and which will feature the new, and supposedly cheaper but heavier lithium-iron phosphate (LFP) battery made by Chinese battery maker CATL.

      Subject to popular opinion, this is actually a good thing.

      From most reports the Made in China version is better on two fronts:
      1. Better fit and finish; and
      2. Better range and will likely less degradation due to using LFP battery chemistry. It doesn't charge as quickly but the upside vastly outweighs the downside.

        But its made in china. So might explode or make your baby's head big or something. Maybe even give you a virus.

        Also, the new LFP Battery chemistry allows you to charge to 100% all of the time. Tesla actually recommends it (Previously it was recommended to only charge 80-90% for daily driving to preserve battery health).

          LFP is definitely the leading chemistry for the future of mass electric transport and energy storage.

      Holy crap, you're right. That is disgraceful.

      Base standard model price for SA is $67647, "$62047 price after est savings" of $5600 of fuel costs. Is that even legal to portray that as a reduction in the price? It's not a reduction in the price, the fact you'll save money on running costs compared to some other hypothetical car does NOT alter the price you're paying for the car.

    • +6 votes

      It is accurate. The laughable "gasoline savings" isn't included in the $62,900 price, although it is hilariously unprofessional to include in a website like Tesla's. That's like saying you didn't buy a 2020 Lamborghini Aventador so that's a savings of $789,809, bringing the total price of the Tesla down to -$726,909. Bargain!

    tesla d!ckrider: oh but you can ask them to fix it for free, (yeh dummy i don't wana have search for and seek out defects and than ask them to fix it), have my car sit in their workshop for a few days after they do a half ass'd, than go do another check see if they fixed it to my satisfaction where in should have been near faultless in the first place.

      As a Model 3 LR owner, I agree. I'm not trying to defend Tesla here, but one must not forget that the German brands have DECADES of car building experience. The Model 3 is, for the lack of a better comparison, a technological "gadget" in the form of a car. Obviously Tesla can improve their manufacturing & QC standards. I've never considered my car to be a "luxurious" brand like my wife's Merc, but I don't think that's Tesla's intention in that regard and I'm entirely happy with that.

        Here is a really good overview from Sandy Munroe, an extremely respected automotive engineer with a rich history in automotive design. He actually has a whole lot of good things to say about the Tesla M3, it's been much improved since he last reviewed it.

        From his wiki page:

        He started as a toolmaker at the Valiant Machine & Tool company – a General Motors supplier in Windsor. In 1978, he joined the Ford Motor Company where he improved methods of engine assembly. In 1988, he started his own consultancy, Munro & Associates, in Troy, Michigan. This specializes in lean design, tearing down automotive products to study and suggest improvements and innovations.[1][2]

    While a great deal for cost-saving fuel measures (and environmental conscience), the listing of other 'luxury sedans' as comparable is a touch absurd.

    While the Model S Tesla may fall in line here, the Model 3 is closer to a Toyota Camry in interior and external quality; simply looking at the materials/styling gives that away, and digging a touch deeper into the significant panel gap flaws and other, for lack of better word, cheap construction practices reveals this car's competition.

    In relation to driving, and with consideration of raw straight line acceleration from 0-100, then the comparison with an M3 or C63 might be relevant. But when considering aspects such as handling means the driving experience is nowhere comparable.

    •  

      another line of thought is that with the amazing fuel savings considered, the average person might be persuaded to shell out this kind of coin (100k vs 170k for amg) the tesla is still 2 thirds the price. has better performance figures. and costs as much as a scooter bike to run. where as the amg sounds better, way better fit and finish, has better presence,. down side is; more things can go wrong with it like engine/gearbox etc, the high maintenance costs and with the way i drive would be like you have a hole in your wallet loosing money daily for fuel.

      till elon addresses the QC issues with the model 3 I wont even consider it. and idk why its only the model 3 I mean I get that its the cheaper car, these issues don't exist with the more expensive model S. by comparison I don't see the same issue with Toyota for example, same attention to detail QC standard for exterior panel gaps & interior panel gaps goes to the base Yaris model vs a top spec Camry model..

      How long does it take to charge it back to at least 80%?

        I have a long range. The charging times vary wildly. On my home 7kw wall charger in garage after a typical days heavy use ending with say 30-40% battery left it'll take 4-5hrs to go back to 90%.

        Basically plug it in each night like your phone. Wake up to a "full tank" every morning.

        A supercharger is MUCH faster but I only use them on long trips i.e. interstate trips

          -build quality - fair enough merc wins atm

          -comfort - draw, it could be argued that the tesla is more comfortable

          -interior trim - draw, subjective (some prefer the minimalist tesla over the buttons and dials of the merc and its been said that tesla has one of the most comfortable seats in any car by the reviews.

          -features - tesla wins, ahhhh full self driving? all round cameras always recording? self summon? OTA updates? performance boost and range boost with OTA updates? farting cushion sound? hepa filter air con (chemical attack proof)? yehh the merc aint got shit over the tesla in features

          -reliability - tesla wins lol the Germans are hardly known for good reliability, after the warranty good luck. you got them mixed up with the japs. the tesla seems to have great reliability from what we have seen with the early model s cars so tesla wins this.

          -fun factor - merc wins fair enough but can also be a draw since the tesla has the instant acceleration up its sleeve which could be a substitute for the no noise (sound and presence of a v8 is acknowledged and cannot be debated. but the sheer acceleration times of the tesla beats the merc by a land slide.

          -flex - fair enough merc wins

          • maintenance cost and running cost; no competition here tesla wins hands down

          safety: tesla hands down no need to argue here. merc is just ok but tesla being a EV has better crumble zone in the front, better roll over prevention (bottom heavy) hell this point alone would do it for most people they would overlook all the other benefits just to have the safest car.

          badge: merc wins its is luxury well known brand, tesla is more of the new hip LA futuristic brand. which isnt that far behind.
