This video was brought to you by AED Ro Planner cow Marcus B storb and B Componente yo what's up we're now on the New house garage and behind me here you See Volkswagen Eagle this is when 2014 It has done over 120,000 km and we're Going to do a trip to yo so a couple of Weeks ago I did the yo test with a Pretty degraded Leaf so that was 10 year Old car this is only 9y old and it Should be a lot better so we're going to See now how it goes so yeah first of all I can tell you that inside the garage it Has been around 12° C the battery should Be the same uh we have Nan Haka palita Nine studed tires you might need that For tonight we have some lead bar there And a big shout out to elmech for Lending me this Car yeah man Eolf H look at this oh look at this interior huh nice way Better than ID3 okay but let's see now we have car Scanner here we have some variables so When we charge to full uh yeah 170 km Range here's the anom by the way um it Displaces as 96% and then once the Batter is down to around 5% this one Will show 13% or 16% when it's really 5% So okay but anyway here so we start with Okay temperature in the battery 12.5 we Shouldn't cold get at all uh this one uh Is just uh it's not energy remaining so

It's just it will stay the same I'll Show you once we start driving so um let Me show now nav let's go to Nav uh zoom out zoom out oh this is how What the with this instead okay okay Okay who okay so since we are now Starting from what the heck is it Supposed to be that slow H since we Starting now from yes him we will not to Drive the regular route to yo uh we will Actually Drive via the airport almost And then N and then we go via R Yam and then we get over to the regular Route here yeah sna and so on Flo is a n Be And then Yow is there so normally from Oslo arabu we will travel this route Here Via but I measure that uh um the oso Route takes 3 hours and then the yesim Route takes 2 hours and 55 minutes so we Will just we will see the the offset Based on the reference test we did with Xang G9 how much slower is this one so Uh yeah we'll we'll see we'll see the The lead needed um 4 hours and 40 Minutes or 1 hour and 40 minutes slower Than the reference test we'll see with This one how much faster it is than the Leaf I supect it to be a lot faster Because it Chargers faster it's more Efficient uh and it has more energy left In the battery and also oh

Okay Here we also have this one here ecoflow Not that we need it and then some extra Heat because the car becomes a bit Stingy once the battery is almost out And then Also we have microwave Owen with us and Uh also the safety equipment so yeah This is the microwave oven from uhu or The old house uh we brought it with us But we don't need it because we have an Integrated one so then it will become my Trip uh over but okay I took out the the Glass plate I will show you that here Here I left this one here because I Don't wanted to oh is freaking Nasty I need to clean this okay we Just leave that here yeah and now we Need to unplug uh wait I think we need To stop the car okay let's get going I Have to see now we will start roughly 10 Yeah okay in a couple of minutes we'll [Music] Start We are getting close to SNA and we have 12 km of range left there was a message Here saying uh Comfort reduced now low Battery uh towards the end it actually Shuts down the heater but it doesn't Matter I already shut down the heat a Long time ago because I have ecoflow in The back there blasting heat okay but Okay we are 4 km away from sna we're Going to go for sna holy look at look at

This look at this we're done 95 kilm This car has 100 km of rain during Winter what and I'm even not slow poking You see I'm driving at barely legal Speeds Here this car is simply amazing huh Okay Nissan uh sorry ma but uh your Leaf Your 10 or Leaf is nowhere near as good As this eolf oh Man we are now juing up but you see here 100 amp multiply by this one we get 32 Kow now the battery should be warm Enough uh the other day I also plugged In with 16° C I got 125 I'm 40 Kow so I'm not sure what's going on here um Also the car is so ancient that it Doesn't show you charging Speed yeah Um do do I need oh do I need to Move to another Charger I can see what the charger Reports yeah you see 32 KW that's a bit weird maybe I should try Another charger I know these old Chargers could sometimes they are a Little bit Buggy Um or I could try one of those instead But uh yeah it's not like I need the Speed Okay let's try to move see if that Improves the Situation okay let's see I move Charger let's see if that

Helps what okay okay it ramps up slowly Now come on come on come on come on come On it's C at 125 Amps okay ramps up a little bit slow can We at least get more than 99 amps come On come on come on come on come on 95 8 Oh oh oh yeah Oh Leaf power no no sorry eulf power Look at that look at that look at that Oh yeah if you do the math here this Will be around 42 kwatt hour per hour Okay so we need to deduct 2 minutes Because this is a Time attack then every Minute counts so deduct 2 minutes here Yeah so we can try to find the next Charger now you now this is pretty Awesome man you have this Navigation um we're going to go on know The new route okay okay uh I wonder if I Can reach oh it would be great to reach Ghoul I want to go To okay I can always bail up before GH We have plenty of stops but I want to go Here Shell no no no head okay let me See wait where is it there this one this One this one you see here shell oh yeah We don't need to preheat before fast Charging I think this this freaking Ancient stuff guidance already active Start just go for that wow wow look at This advanced stuff man you can multiple For 88 oh yeah I could reach it okay We'll

See okay not much to do here at night we Have plenty of chargers yeah the the Good thing about this route to yo is That we have so many charging locations Like even the freaking Leaf could charge Every 10 km you know so yeah yeah but uh That's it we will just wait here a Little bit and then we go All right we reached 82% it took 19 Minutes and now we're going slow so yeah Let's go well that was around 22 minute Dring stop and also yeah this one when We unplugged we had around 85% so Getting 20 Kow then it's time to leave But look here we started around 16° and We have gained only 7° C during the Charging session that is simply amazing Way better than Leaf you know Leaf has Also 24 Kow our battery but Leaf heats Up a lot and also uh Leaf if you arrive At 16° C will cold it like a mofo here We had nice and flat Charing curve until Around 70% until it start throttling so Man like you know leaf and Eagle they They don't have active cooling uh they Lack thermal management but the Eagles Seem to have way better battery than Leaf so so you get way better Performance even though they are similar Age and well this one is more expensive But uh it is also way better oh me golf Is way better than Leaf but we have to See and it's still in the beginning of The trip we have to see by the end of

The trip how well it can handle It We are now charging at NP getting oh Yeah 123 amp yes okay but the battery is Huh to my big surprise the battery did Not cool down at all a little bit only Half de C but I was failing big time on Handshake 9 km um we have to Du 9 Minutes because Um that charger there was just bad it's A Delta charger we're now at Avenue and I move over to this one work right away Okay anyway I'm going to get some food Now so I will get this one ready uh I Know we have roughly 20 minutes here so The car charges pretty fast but okay Okay let's get some food dinner for Tonight is this fuel on CH oh Co damn let me see always read the Instructions okay 800 WTS 4 minutes okay This is 900 watt wait we have to pull Off the okay okay I get this one ready We just have to rip off this uh foil so It doesn't explode oh wait wait I Need just need to I need this little bit There there like this okay there that's Good put it in here no no no no no no no No come on come on I need two hands okay There there put it in No Okay and Then I think 3 minutes should be Enough Go no no 30 seconds oh okay

Why Electric City Vehicles Matter

EVs convert 59-62 percent of energy to turn the wheels, making them much more efficient than ICE vehicles. But the power that recharges them still comes from the grid, and while Earthjustice attorneys are working hard to bring us 100% clean renewable energy, most of our electricity is still generated from fossil fuels. That’s why the electric cars you drive matter, because they can help us reduce the amount of pollution we create.

Moreover, because they are so economical to run, electric cars can make it possible for many communities to save on transport costs. And, because they’re more resilient than traditional gas cars, they can also be used to deliver essential services and supplies when environmental disasters or climate change strike — and disadvantaged communities often suffer the most.

Electric cars are also safer than ICE cars and offer greater driver visibility through their windows, as well as improved handling thanks to regenerative braking that helps you coast down hills. And, with their smaller engine, they require less maintenance and can go longer between oil changes than conventional gas vehicles.

With more choices and a lower price point, it’s easier than ever to find an EV that’s right for you. But before you buy, be sure to take the time to learn about how EVs are impacted by local policies, infrastructure, battery manufacturing and more. And, because they still need periodic service (topping off wiper fluid, changing the cabin air filter or re-filling coolant), be sure to select an automaker that has a reliable brick-and-mortar authorized dealership service network.
