AUDI AI:ME UNVEILED AS REAR-WHEEL-DRIVE EV FOR THE CITY”
“The Volkswagen I.D. Roomzz isn’t the only new fully electric concept VAG is introducing at the Auto Shanghai 2019 in China as Audi is also attending the event to showcase the new AI:ME. Sending out a futuristic A2 vibe, the new showcar carrying the Four Rings takes the shape of a compact zero-emissions hatchback developed primarily for city use.” reports Adrian Padeanu for Motor1.com: “Audi believes an equivalent production version would mostly travel at speeds between 20 and 70 kph (12 to 43 mph) over short distances. With that in mind, the AI:ME was conceived with a simple hardware configuration encompassing a 65-kWh battery pack ideal for city use, although the actual range isn’t specified. The design is as futuristic as you’d expect from a concept, complete with rear suicide doors and the absence of conventional B-pillars. Intricate LED headlights and taillights lend the electric hatch a high-tech look, while the use of real plants inside the minimalistic cabin is a first in an automobile, according to Audi. Not that it comes as a big surprise, but the AI:ME has been envisioned with a highly advanced autonomous driving system with level 4 capabilities.”

In February, Dubai Corporation of Ambulance Services unveiled the Zero DS, which produces no heat, vibration or fumes. The ambulance service said the emergency vehicle would be used for rapid intervention and immediate response situations.”

Tesla Model 3 Long Range supercharging completely from 0 to 100%. Full session time lapse. Warm battery. Did not have to share supercharger with other vehicles.
In most cases it is not recommended/worth the time to supercharge to 100% especially since the charge rate slows considerably as the battery reaches 100%, but wanted to show the charge rates over time.
The supercharger briefly stopped and restarted for a few seconds at around 66% state of charge. Also some have mentioned other vehicles going beyond full charge rate past 50%
In the first video of this series, I will help you understand the factors you need to consider when deciding on a home charging solution for your Tesla Model 3:
1. Your Model 3’s battery capacity
2. Your home charging equipment
3. The charging rate you can achieve
4. Your battery consumption pattern
5. The amount of time you have to recharge.
This video discusses the first three factors. Below is a list of useful links for information referenced in this video.
