This video was brought to you by Steinberg a better world planner Mr Green Camp power and Marcus Beale Yo what's up we are now at eye on the Doll and behind me here you see the Tesla Model is planned today I'm going To do something fun we're gonna put on The wheel caps and we will see how much More efficient is it so it's supposed to Be more efficient right because it makes The wheels more aerodynamics so um yeah Right now it looks kind of ugly because There's supposed to be a cover here I've Taken enough so there you can see Oh is that Roost oh that is Roost also On the on the brakes oh oh I should use The brakes more but okay so um yeah you See the front these are by the way the Original Tesla rims it's just that we Don't have the wheel caps on so I can Show you I have them in a trunk Yeah here they are so they're just Plastic And I guess it gives the wheel more Aerodynamic properties wait is that like A directional thing here Um Well I'm not sure are they uh Uh do they seem to be the same same but Different yeah yeah there's only one Shape wait who is it Let me see yeah they seem the same way Does it mean that when they rotate the Opposite they must be designed

Aerodynamically to work on both Directions there okay but what we're Going to do first is to uh do the test Without the wheel caps see how it goes We will do 90 and 120 kilometers per Hour and then we put on the Caps oh I Can't wait to see the result So the plan is to drive from here to Strongly and back again yeah we just Take a long route so we get some to even Out everything so I guess we should Start with the 120 test first Well today we have nice weather sunny uh Four degrees Celsius we have to cruise 124 to match 120. all right there's a eqc well that One is getting old isn't it right so um Yeah I guess I know I'm not gonna have The right lane oh sorry the left lane Just doing it now during the video Recording And house me also today oh No wind well perfect While we're back at the starting point So we spend 219 what are per kilometer And then according to Google the Distance is 66 kilometers well you can See here it's actually 67.0 There so I have to calculate the uh the Distance error but uh I can show you That it's different than previously Because now We fill up more air in there in the Tires this is actually recommended from

Nokia and actually to have 10 over Inflation it's supposed to be 2.9 uh According to spec but yeah so that's why We have lower uh distance errors so I'm Going to calculate everything and now we Do the 90 test with the the Caps off Still All right this time we have to cruise at 93 on the speedo and still four degrees Celsius outside the weather hasn't Changed that much except for that there Is now a little bit of headwind So it just started actually it started On the way back on the 120 test so That is actually Um Yeah it will it will affect the the Result okay you can see here now now Yeah well that's kind of strong wind Whoa Wait where's the blowing what But we're supposed to have a headwind Now but yeah I've decided to turn around Over there so we cut down the 90 test But then the 120 test all goes all the Way to standisha so yeah this is uh it Should be good enough now wow look at That lots of wind now All right the result of a 90 test uh 173 Watt hour per kilometer okay I have to Correct for this is a little bit higher Now let's put on the caps So when you want to put the caps on you Look at this one this is the

The vent for uh yeah all right you align The this side first like this and then You just pop it in but you will actually Cause a slight scratch every time you Pop it in and pop it out again so I Wouldn't recommend doing this too often Just kind of keep it on like this So now the car looks like this hmm which Looks do you like the most caps on or Caps off I actually kind of like the caps Okay this time it's five degrees Celsius So it's actually slightly better Temperature than the previous 120 test But we have more wind so uh I guess it Kind of cancels out each other right but It's always hard to do a proper test and Control all the variables when you have Like a real world chest like this Whoa caps on are slightly better than The first one but I think the first one Was a bit unfair yeah Well okay let's do 90 tests then All right this time 167 watt hour per Kilometer okay this one is better hmm But you know uh what is the temperature Now five degrees Celsius Tonight it's going to be -10 some places Let's come back tonight and test again Caps on cups off It is now half an hour past midnight we Are back at all down part two of the Test so um I had to clean the car it was Kind of dirty and then I took the wheel

Caps off again so now we go with the Cups off and then we see yeah we have Almost no traffic here All right first test we go caps off 120 Kilometers per hour it's proper coal now Minus eight degrees Celsius so I figure I don't bother going all the way to Strongly job you can just turn around at Miosa just like with a 90 test yeah it Should be good enough especially now at The night we have very uh wait let me See high beam oh oh yeah wait Uh No okay whatever Auto high beam is on But it's not firing up okay no but you Know see at night I tend to run longer Runs in case there are some left lane Huggers so then I can just even it out And go a little bit faster but at night Now we have very uh consistent runs with No traffic so we can go a lot shorter Runs that's the whole idea behind it Well I was just turn around at Minnesota And over here it's a minus six degrees Celsius so I'm going to take an average And say -7 for this random Right around 1 248 watt hour per Kilometer well That's as expected when it's cold Outside but without the caps All right let's do 90 tests then We have to top up quickly at Dion Because I realized that the rare fans Were running and normally I would have

Them obviously it's probably because we Have the easy fix base here so the car Detects that oh there's something behind Here so you have to run the but I will Show that okay so when when the rare fan Is running right we are then pulling one Busy here over one kilowatt and then if I turn off Very fun look at this Uh Uh so actually today also I had the E6 Basis the result today was a little bit Higher than I expected so you might have This is called the the earlier result Today and only look at the night run Instead okay let's redo then This one is actually colder minus seven Over here it was minus six just now And also notice something else it Actually feels colder in the cabin Now Versus when we had the rear heater on I Mean it makes sense right we get some Heat from the back that kind of warms The whole cabin now this is like you Know in eco mode so yeah So just bear that in mind actually huh I Think when I did the 1000 kilometer Challenge it will have better Comfort if I had the rear heater on so I guess That's a trip tip for you who has a Model S Palladium is to uh yeah just put On the rear heater and you will have way Better Comfort but you spend a little Bit more energy of course

Uh interesting even though it was Slightly cold we spent only 240 watt Hour now All right okay now we can do the 90 test Then All right 185 watt hour per kilometer Over here it's minus 9 degrees Celsius All right let's pop the caps Okay see the battery temperature drop a Little bit so we're going to top up now To get it to around 25 degrees Celsius Again just like the starting point on The previous test to make it as even as Possible What story markers we have to Break an egg to make Omelette Rip rims oh She [Music] All right cups on 235 versus 240 all Right it's still minus 9 degrees Celsius Outside okay let's try the 90 test then Whoa we are at um Minnesota and I put the camera in really weird setting Where I get as much light as possible And also turn up the gain a slow shutter And I don't know if you can see there's Like a blue green blue band There kind of That is Aurora Unfortunately I didn't bring the DSLR But wow look at this there is there is

Aurora we we almost missed the the thing The action Look at that Whoa you can actually see a little bit Of Aurora Wow So far south and you can see Aurora Oh okay it's kind of weak but just kp3 But still Oh that's awesome yeah maybe it's a Better decision from this side look at That Huh interesting Caps on 90 kilometers per hour it's Actually slightly higher than the Previous run with caps off could be Because it's cold outside it could also Be because the battery has cooled down So it seems like this is really hard to Test I guess it would be best to test it In summer when we can turn off HVAC and When it gets battery temperature doesn't Matter We are back home now so I just put all The results in the result table and I'm Trying to interpret all this it could Seem like when you have caps on you have Lower consumption and caps off the only Problem today was that we have so many Variables out there we have wind we have An outside temperature and then we have Battery temperature which affects the The heat Scavenging and all that stuff So I think the best deal would be to try

This in summer spring instead and then We might turn off heater to leave out Some variables and then we might see a Strong collaboration between capsule and Cups off but it could at least seem like Uh this car the triple motor or the plug Is thirstier than the dual motor the Long range yeah and then how much does The Caps help well I think it helps but Just I'm not sure how much then but then It boils down to you guys do you like The caps on or do you like the Caps of Or other rims for me I'm not sure yeah but anyway I think That's going to be it for now hope you Guys enjoyed this video as always thank You for watching and talk to you later

Electric City Vehicles Cars Power

Electric City Vehicles Cars Power

The shift to battery-electric vehicles (EVs) is accelerating. Automakers are developing a host of new models and building charging infrastructure around the country to support them. The Biden administration has also outlined policies to accelerate the ZEV movement, with incentives for charging stations and zero-emission vehicle sales.

Batteries that can charge quickly and easily are necessary for EVs, especially in cities where many people don’t have a garage. This means they need to be able to recharge overnight at homes, at work, or at public charging stations when needed.

In addition, a growing number of EVs are equipped with regenerative braking systems that can recharge the batteries during slow downs, reducing energy loss and boosting efficiency. Using this technology allows a car’s engine to run more efficiently, improving fuel economy while also minimizing emissions.

GM and Honda plan to begin global production of millions of EVs starting in 2027, with a focus on small SUVs. Both automakers are working together to standardize equipment and processes, which will keep costs down.

Tesla Ford GM Power Manufacturing

The Big Three carmakers are already racing to accelerate production of EVs in the US, and they all want to make sure they can secure sufficient battery materials to access tax credits. As part of this push, each has announced how they’re securing the material to build enough cars to meet demand.

The electricity that powers EVs is produced from coal, natural gas, nuclear, hydropower, wind and solar energy. Utilities need to plan ahead to cope with the increased amount of energy that EVs consume. Increasing capacity to match the increase in demand could lower rates for all customers and help sustain power plant revenue in the long term.
