How does an Electric Car work ? | Tesla Model S

  • Published on May 30, 2017
  • Electric cars are making big waves in the automobile world. These noise-free, pollution-free and high-performance vehicles are expected to make their I.C. engine counterparts obsolete by 2025. This video will unveil the hidden technologies behind the Tesla Model S, which recently became the world’s fastest accelerating car. We will see how electric cars have achieved superior performance by analyzing the technology behind the induction motor, inverter, lithium ion battery power source, regenerative braking and above all, the synchronized vehicle mechanism, in a logical, step-by-step manner. The working and features of Tesla car is explained here with help of animation.

    Fully electric cars have been driven and popular in China for more than a decade. I don’t understand why the rest of the world doesn’t want to move on to a more eco friendly option.

    One thing nobody seems to care about or talk about are the potential serious health consequences of sitting near several electromagnetic and electric fields. EMF is a very serious concern whose health related research has been supressed for decades by the (telecommunications) industry. Read up to protect yourself and your family. Check out the 2012 bioinitiative report and work done by Martin Pall and others. It's really serious stuff. Electric cars aren't just all unicorns and rainbows.

    Impossible t'aura toujours des véhicules moteur a explosion même si l'électrique sert plus d'après eux a faire des économies met c bien le contraire car n'utilise pas son véhicule sur son réseaux domestique connaissant les testé performance et toute action de l'utilité et bien être de la domotique de la maison

    I think EVs are great, BUT still very expensive. Gas engines are not outdated just yet.

    I'm sorry, but you got it wrong in the first ten seconds. Pollution free ......? I don't think so. First, the enormous environmental cost of production,
    and secondly, the power generated via a power station to run it. Sure, electric cars are the future, but don't make them out to be something they're not.

    I always thought connecting each wheel to an electric motor would eliminate the need for gears and shafts or even having a clock like gear system with gears right in each motor right at the wheel and save weight and space??

    It was via Twitter that the iconic leader of Tesla claimed that the future Tesla Roadster, in addition to being a real electric bombinette, will be able to ... fly!
    Indeed, if Elon Musk is accustomed to shattering ads and other easter eggs, he claims on Twitter that the future Tesla Roadster will be able to fly, thanks to a "SpaceX Package".

    Electric cars are making a big stir in the world of cars.
    These cars without noise, without pollution ??? And high performance is supposed to make the thermal vehicles obsolete in 2025 ...
    Poor Elon Musk ... all in the nuance ... He nevertheless admitted to having avoided the bankruptcy in 2018!

    What progress since the LOTUS 25 1963 of the late: JIM CLARK?
    Some figures ... Coventry Climax 90 ° V8 engine with an engine displacement of 1.496 cm3 ...
    Power: 195 hp engine speed: 9.500 rpm
    Dry weight: 450 kgf! approximately: 4,500 Newton

    Engine Renault RS27 V8 atmospheric with 90 ° 2,400 cm3 of cubic capacity
    Power: 750 HP RPM: 18,000 RPM
    Dry weight: 642 kgf! approximately: 6.420 Newton
    In 50 years in Formula 1 we have multiplied the power by 4 and the safety of a coffin rolling to an indestructible and secure car!
    What is truly exceptional and amazing is to find that a modern and complete formula 1 is lighter than just the weight of a Tesla's batteries!
    This simple fact is for me a demonstration of the nullity of the Tesla project of Elon Musk!

    No hate ...
    The day when the illuminated Elon Musk will be concerned to produce the electricity himself to load his Teslas in a totally renewable way with the help of his miraculous tiles and store his current in the recovery of his batteries ... Through his superchargers without using EDF in France and ENEL in Italy .... To provide him with the flow ... Then I would start to believe in his projects!

    I think a lot of Tesla owners ... are going to have a very different vision of their wonderful 100% electric .... The day it will happen to them ... to have for bad weather to be forced despite themselves ... of spend a night at -10 ° C in their Tesla prisoner of a gigantic cap .... As often happens in France with 50 cm or more of snow !!!! In the middle of winter ?

    There should be no batteries: carry a nicely sized diesel generator in the trunk, you'll have no charging and discharging losses,and no losses on the long wires from the diesel plants,or coal plants,to the charging stations,thus eliminating the middleman.

    Will anyone make a nice video on power loss due to 110V system in US (big fat cables over ground with wooden sticks) and the amount of power wasted between powerplant production and your car battery being fully charged. Lets see how efficient this whole story is in the end. A Tesla car with these nonsense big tires have nothing to do with efficiency. Plus I never seen a Tesla drive drive slow to save energy. Its a hype! That most likely uses even more energy due to the fact that saving can only be done by the human, NO matter the technology.

    I think I know how to solve the long charging time and the low range problem. What if the batteries could be replaced by a person? The car itself has a lot of space, so, if we buy 5 different batteries and carry them with us you would only have to replace them when needed. Of course this poses a problem, and that is how would we charge those five batteries efficiently? I'd propose to connect all the batteries to five different charging cables. If this could be achieved we would have long range and would have to charge the batteries so often.
