    what is the voltage system for the Rivian compared to Tesla?

    Tesla does "advertise" fast charging capabilities and "range" to enhance sales and image. I have read of owners having their SC experience throttled. I am aware that they reduced the L2 capacity to 11.3kW(is that the number a 60 amp, 240V line can create?) from some higher number. I'm...

    Let's talk about charging on long distance travel?

    The newest CCS charging stations featuring 150-350kW capacities is neat but at what rate does your BEV charge at? There is a charging curve with the highest levels usually between 10-35% SOC and then it drops. Tesla Model 3 owners frequently report on an average 87kW charge for their rate...

    Economic Reasons to Buy an EV instead of a gas powered car

    Some people are going to point out that the Tesla Service Centers are filled with cars that "don't need service". Others are going to state 5 minutes to refuel and then I can go 450-500 miles. While you need to stop twice as often and for a much longer time frame. Fast charging sites in some...

    what is the voltage system for the Rivian compared to Tesla?

    Thank you. Question, Electrify America has 150-350 kWh fast charging capacity. I don't believe any of the current in production or near retail production vehicles can utilize 350kWh except maybe Porsche. Is it correct that a 800V system will be able to handle 350kWh chargers and thus...

    what is the voltage system for the Rivian compared to Tesla?

    Don't know the exact wording/terms but is the Rivian have a 800 volt system installed making it far more robust and powerful than the Tesla? Also able to charge faster at the level 3 chargers?
