  1. @cybermeow they're still manufactured to hit a price point. How much power do you need in a daily driver, for real.

    1. @moonman only enough for gaining to typical highway speeds and that isn't much at all compared to the now average American auto.

      1. @awl @moonman tbh I don't get why electric cars have to suck.  anyone who has ridden a city metro knows that torque of those electric trains is tremendous ...

        1. @awg i remember when the tesla roadster was easily out-accelerating everything in its class. Electric motors have such an instantaneous power band that the torque yield is tremendous. Arguably the problem is horsepower, duration but with Tesla being in the market as it is now the problem is quickly being solved.

          1. @awl Tesla's problem has been part quality.  They've had a lot of breakdowns in such a way as pretty much indicates they're using low-quality metals in their construction, no doubt to improve margins.  This was one of the revelations of the probes into the "NDA repair deals" fiasco that got looked into some time ago.

            1. @maiyannah I'm not too surprised, for what is an upstart company to have problems with the way to do things early on. Also makes me glad I'm not a Tesla owner (yet)

      2. @awl Why do you want a car that can't reach 250km/h
