      13:30 One quick point, gasoline(and diesel) cars have engine braking and when you engine brake you don't use gas (with cars from the last 2/3 decades)

    3. Ramadika Ismanto

      1:04 As a petrolhead, I'm offended, but I understand your viewpoint

    4. J Karra

      Theres no reason to count just how much you save for 100km... Counting how much owning car costs per km is the only way. And i can tell If you count very very expensive car +all other costs + depreciation driving newer EV is just dumb.🤭 My old Audi A2 1.2tdi has averaged consuption of under 4 liters/100km(60mpg)and in freeway speeds it goes even further, over 75mpg(3liters /100km) And car is basicly worth maybe 4K€ .that + insurance and upkeep costs are like 14€ sents(17$ cents US, 20$ cents CAN) per km annyally.that includes fuel, insurance,services with averaged km per year being ~10.000kms

      Cars are more than tools. And if cars even are "tools", you enjoy your tools why can't other people enjoy their tools.

      13:35 when you drive right you use Not a drop gasoline/diesel driving donwhill.

    8. Fawwaz Alshareef

      The ultra fast processor you are asking for would require more energy further limiting the range. It’s a transportation tool not a home theater :)

    9. Venomorph

      why dont you change the display processor sir? :D

    10. make mugen

      Intel athlon... 🤣

    11. 1so Static

      EV cars put MORE pollution into the environment. Its just shifting the problem

    12. N20

      1:38 no it should all be running on petrol like the GT-R

    13. Jim K

      If it's so great, why does the government need to steal our money to help the rich buy expensive toys?

    14. Damian Pulido

      My truck has more than a 500 mile range and takes less than 15 min to fill up lol no hate though I love your channel!! The self driving made me way more nervous for you then actually driving has ever made me lol

    15. LP Isa

      9:36 I remember Mr. bean Suddenly lol 😆

    16. Beekei Patel

      Tesla model 3 be like: don't do any experiment with me 🙄 I said no

    17. lucas ribeiro

      sadly here in Brazil this technology is to much expensive and we dont have structure to have this kind of car here, cause we have no place to charge it

      Also Mehdi you with all due respect lack some automotive knowledge. Going downhill in petrol car you dont burn any fuel (assuming you are going down in gear and engine breaking). UNLESS we are talking cars older than early 90s, that have carburetors .. then yea... but seriously any car since then with MPi / GDI (electronically controlled fuel injection) will just stop fuel and engine is just "air pump". Additionally comparision of costs of running petrol and EV cars is really not fair when you compared heavy taxed petrol (here where I live OVER 50% of the cost of petrol is tax) and untaxed (with the extra tax) electricity. Government won't say good bye to these money (as they would have to grab em elsewhere) and so clearly this is not comparison that can be stand its ground thru out time. At some point (if EVs get mainstream) special tax to compensate what the petrol Tax brought will be added in one way or another. Some countries already started doing this in a way... So to be fair you'd have to cut petrol costs in HALF. On top of that you are omitting the charger loses. Which while not massive, are still about some sources claiming ~9%, others going as high as 12-15%!. I.e. to charge 54 KWh, you will need ~ 60KWh. You can do better than this - what I usually like about your vids is that you dont blindly side. And really? 10 liters pet 100 kmh... in a modern car? Really? The EV can show its benefits even without such silly exageration and bias. Modern petrol car will easily go for 5-6 l/100 when going efficiently (90-110 km/h constant speed you can actually dip below 5...) Sure city traffic or going faster drains it more (but on the other hand going really fast in EV literally halfs the range) but assuming anything more than 7.5 l per 100 in modern car is stupid and biased. So more realistic comparision would be: 60KWh x ~ lower of average power cost = 6.5 USD 6.5 (l / 100) x 3 (300km) x 1.4 (usd per l) = 27.3 USD. half of that is extra tax, real petrol cost = 13.65 USD So yea, EV is ~ half the "fuel" costs. And thats what most reasonable calculations come down to. Totally off your numbers.

    20. Stilg1301

      I just don't get why ppl keep selling this "EV's have almost none maintenance" nonsense. Neither das a petrol car, for the first half a decade. Sure, oil every 2 years , brake pads if you drive alot, but as for the "feared" maintenance .. not really. That stuff comes gradually with the age, as the life of the various consumables depletes and stuff ages. Around 10 years is a good mark where some more serious maintenace is usually needed... and from that on, unless you "do it all" it will just pop every now and then... EVs being still relativelly new, most of them are still in the "new" phase. But there are Tesla S owners who already went thru MULTIPLE drivetrains... sure thats prolly just due to defects and not expected lifespan but still.. Anyway my point is that there are many systems on EV that will require basically the same maintenance as regular car. Sure you dont have the engine / transmission and exhaust / intake bits to worry much about... but ask yourself, is that really the only / majority of car maintenance? Not really. Suspension work (control arms, bushing, bearings on top mounts, ball joints, car dampers, springs... those are generally identical and will require same maintenance .. if not more due to higher weight. Wheel bearings... same deal. Steering - tie rods, and tie rod ends, steering rack. EPS (electronic Power steering) all the same and the maintenance will be the same. Window regulators, Door locks, wheel arches, headlights ...all that stuff is prone to same maintenance as petrol car. A/C is very similar and will require same / similar service. etc. etc. All the plastic bits that can break, charging port etc Tires... teslas are known to go thru sets of tires actually really fast... brake service might be less often if you use regen alot but will be still there. Sure, there is less of the "small regular stuff", but sayin theres none is also BS. Sure you dont have engine intake air filter or oil filter but there still is a cabin air filter and while there is not oil usually, theres still (and quite alot of it) coolant for the batteries mainly... and brakes... those are hydraulic as regular.. .so Brake fluid is the same ...and those will need changing.

      5:07 0 to 100 KM in 5 seconds ? Kelvin Mega?? Medhi what's happening with the units. Plus you are talking about an acceleration? In km per sec?? That's speed unit Medhi! Acceleration is the speed variation during a certain period of time ( so that would normally be 0 to 100 km/h in 5 seconds). Speed is the variation of position in a period of time.😂😂

      Welcome to the Tesla-club (cult) :D

    32. CUBETechie

      How much energy can you generate with the regenerative brake?

    33. Mihail Fedorov

      "its would be beter over time" - yes, if they wouldnt sell to you new Tesla model year after year like an Iphone

    34. Its Esan

      If middle of the way if your car gets discharge somehow then what would you do?

    35. Random 4400

      "But I don't think we can run those on electricity" 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    36. Völl Däpp

      Just to get some things in perspective: My current BMW has adaptive cruise control and lane assist, it steers, brakes, accelerates, changes lanes, stops behind cars, follows traffic, balances trailers, has cameras all around, stops for obstacles (also at reversing), reads traffikc signs such as speed limits, even slows down if a speed limit is AHEAD etc.etc. Also you do not need to move the steering wheel, touching it from time to time is sufficient. And all this also at 180 km/h. It does not recognize traffic lights though. So basically all the fuzz about TESLA's "autopilot" may be more marketing than anything else. In my opinion it is slightly more advanced - true - but other carmakers offer decent systems which are not really far behind - only not marketed as aggressively as "self driving". The BMW is of course not an electric car, and I am not arguing "pro-combustion" here, just wanted to say that a good portion of self driving capabilities are quite common at least in executive cars these days.

      Nice draw board

    42. sviccc

      You are not using any gasoline downhill. That was true with carburretors. What you will do with batteries after its lifetime? They cant be recycled. What a ecology...

    43. Forever Computing

      Can't help stare at that terrible panel gap by the front left headlight, bumper and bonnet...

      2:15 -> he just got new whiteboard 😂🤣

    45. Matasa

      Actually Medhi, thanks to cell cultures, we might be able to actually have electric cows. After all, besides the nutrient baths, those lab-grown meats are mostly consuming electricity during their production. Matter of fact, vertical farming and cell cultured meats may well be the future of agriculture, saving space, energy, and resources, as well as keeping very fresh ingredients locally available.

    54. adam christiansen

      im all for the safety sensors but i think self driving is a net negative right now. it still needs human interaction and a human expecting the car to do its own thing will have a slower reaction time to problems/collisions as they need to figure out whats going on when the car is doing its own thing. that throttle pedal is not too dissimilar to those of us that drive tow rigs and have exhaust breaks/engine breaks and transmission controllers.

    55. memey pasta

      Elon musk hearing from car hmmm ok

    56. RevOlutiOn

      Steer clear of Tesla drivers, they're too busy watching their screen and panicking about battery prices in 10 years when theirs dies.

    57. AmPli FirE

      Let's pray for the Tesla

    58. Ethanos

      He is just sad he spent 53k on a car. I think this video is to make him feel better. Honestly though in 'merica a Tesla would be worst on the environment. And in California people can't charge their car because there is an energy shortage.

      1. Ethanos

        Ran out of room to type XD. Personally I prefer gas cars they look cooler go faster and go much farther. About a 500 mile range. That is on a dodge charger.

    59. L3G1O0ON

      Did not include the energy wasted to dispose of the batteries after you are done using them so the carbon footprint is not as low as you would think. Compare the gas prices and how much you would save to another fuel car in the same class. Tesla is almost twice more expensive so the difference in the price you pay for the car itself will give you enough fuel to run your standard car for a lifetime. Going electric is the way to go for the future and there is no doubt about it but saying that the current electric cars are better than the combustion engine is not really true at this time.

    60. Railfan James

      Imagine how much emissions a diesel locomotive puts out

    61. Vish

      Elon Musk is just making the Electric Car technology expensive and unaffordable, it's like establishment of monopoly, so anyone who comes up with cheap affordable electric vehicles will be immediately suppressed.

    62. Leopard 2 Main Battle Tank

      The 1.4k dislikes are from people who cant afford a tesla

    63. MAKER

      Your wife has never knows when you get out of your home and come . Because Electric cars are way to silent as compared to gasoline car.

    64. MAKER

      2:28 You buy a tool when you need it and buy it to match your application you have for it😂😂 You need Tesla to make carbon footprint graph .And use its T for time .😂😂


      To you it may just be a tool but to some of us cars are our Passion Just like your work is your Passion to you. Not trying to be disrespectful I actually love your videos. Much love from America 👍

    66. The Pure Soul النفس الزكية

      So the conclusion is that, use hydrogen electric car or fuel car and forget about Tesla!

    67. Melvin Dela Cruz

      good and honest review. now I'm waiting for you to tear it down and build it back again.

    68. Abdul Monaim Mohammed

      What do you mean by Gas Pedal? There's no gas in that car 🤷‍♂️ @7:34

    69. []

      I don’t know but a EV combined with him is either a terrible death trap of an idea or a great idea. I wonder what the dude in the Accord was thinking as a Model 3 was flooring it towards him in a red light lol.

    70. Jake Rosendahl

      About the infotainment computer. "What is it? Intel Atom?" Yes. More specifically it's an Intel Infotainment Solution powered by an Atom core, which hasn't been updated in a while. Maybe AMD should work on an infotainment solution that's cheaper but faster. With all the cars today having infotainment, it might be a decent slice of market to have.

    71. Mixed Dreams lofi

      It's good that it needs you to be aware and awake while self driving. That's not a problem. Rather it can self drive and see obstacles , traffic signals etc is amazing to sit back and watch. A product that directly shows the Passion and Hardwork of the team that made it possible.

    72. wheelieking71

      Please explain your note @ 2:54 that 95% of BC electricity (the grid) is made from "renewables". The fact that anybody uses the word renewable when talking energy kinda yanks my chain. Here is why: one can not create energy. Period. You can't. I can't. Nobody can. Energy can only be converted, or stored. You, if anybody, knows this! Battery technology has a long way to go before any body convinces me that EVs are good for the environment. I respect your massive knowledge, and intelligence. But, I absolutely do not agree with you on the subject of EVs.

    84. Thrust vectoring

      No, gas cars don't use gas to go downhill since 2000s if you don't coast on neutral, which is actually prohibited in most countries as it is dangerous.

    85. Bob Owen

      Put tinfoil on the boxes and try that experiment again with autopilot or cruise control. Radar sees the metal edges.

    86. jerome pickles

      Do Tesla's use rare earth elements?

    87. Piracy advocate

      11:30 ICEs have a thing like this too, it's called engine braking 13:30 and, yeah, you pretty much always use engine braking while driving down the hill and you don't use any fuel that way

    88. Dylan Baarda

      Remember: the model 3 doesn't stop for cardboard boxes or the end of the road.

      سلام آقا مهدی یه لطفی کن یه آموزش هم بساز برای مقایسه پاوربانک و شارژر اصلی و شارژر ماشین و ... . فست شارژ و شارژر معمولی این که مزایا و معایب هر کدوم چیه. و چه جوری عمر باتریمون رو حداکثر کنیم. از نظر من، فست شارژ یعنی عمر کوتاه تر باتری و پاوربانک های خوب بهترین ولتاژ رو دارند بنابراین یه پاوربانک خوب غیر فست بهترین حالت شارژ باتری هست از لحاظ طول عمر باتری و طول مدت شارژ دهی اما از نظر زمان شارژ شدن کند هست.

      hey thats a great idea! ill get an electric car! except there are no charging stations around me.... and i rent so no adding one to my home....... and i work at a gas station so easy access and cheaper pricing.......... and im not really able to afford the costs............... and seriously the environmental impact really isnt enough to get me. the earth will fix itself if we push it too far. blue gender taught me that well.
