Show #444

“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 “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.”


“Police in Dubai are going green with their new eco-friendly fleet of electric patrol cars to support the emirate’s sustainability drive. Dubai Police officers will be getting behind the wheel of 13 Renault Zoe electric cars, secured from Arabian Automobiles.” according to “Dubai Police is not the only state service helping to protect the planet. 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.”

Now several buyers have reached out to Electrek to confirm that they have taken…

Tesla Model 3 Supercharging from 0 to 100%

If you found this video helpful, get 6 months of free supercharging credit when buying a Tesla Model S, 3, or X, by using my referral link:

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%

50 kW CSS Charging Tesla Model 3 Performance in Norway

People have reported problems charing the Tesla Model 3 on different CSS chargers lately.

I did a quick tour on five of my local chargers and had no problems with handshake or charging speed. Maybe I was lucky?

All chargers are 50kW and I got 44-47kW charing speed.

People also complain about poor Supercharging speeds, but I’m pretty sure it’s all about battery heat and state of charge. On my last visit to a SuC my car charged at 117kW with 45% SoC (765 km/hr!)
