Example: Porsche Taycan has 12.9 Cubic feet rear trunk space compared to 26.3 for the Model S. He called it a tie. Give...
  2. 18 moving parts in a Tesla

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    This is an interesting video. This guy makes the case for EVs taking over WAY faster than markets are anticipating simply based on the simplicity and reliability of EVs. He uses the Tesla Model S as the example, but I imagine that this applies to other EVs as well. The Tesla Model S...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
