    Sooo, if you pull Teslas trailor with a Nicola truck, you have a "Nikola Tesla". Finally!

  2. Jack Davids November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Sad face …. Lol

    Hi friendly people of the internet.

    Can someone please explain why the electric bike has 6 gears? Shouldn't it have like 1?

  4. Thaylor Harmor November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Average highway speed in California is like 75mph (120.7 kph)

    I was offered a week off with pay if I did not report an ankle injury working for a factory. This is industry standard. I would not doubt Tesla doing similar things. That said. I fault our politicians not Tesla for this oversight. The law does not protect the worker in this country. Because workers have never boosted the economy by hiring people and giving them jobs. Money is not what poor people need, they need jobs. Ps I was fired for "unrelated" reasons after the injury, which I reported.

    Love your vids

    The I-pace is a good looking car with more than enough range for the bulk of consumers it's a good first effort in the EV world. I think that it's customers will be satisfied with this product. However, it's also a good gauge of where the traditional automakers are with the EV technology. Sadly, it looks as though the traditional automakers are about a decade behind Tesla in terms of EV technology. As of right now, if you're looking for the best batteries and most advanced motors it's still Tesla…

    "sad face" what the h…? 😞

    That Nikola truck looks beautiful.

    20 MPH for the Twizy… that is ridiculously slow.

    I live in the UK and as many Twizy owners in Europe and other countries, tuned my Twizy to a top speed of over 65 MPH and an increase of torque by 80%… now with 100 nm. Not much compare to other EV cars but in cities it is a rocket and completely change the use of the Twizy.

    Uber should not be allowed to endanger people anymore

  11. Ivan Santana November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    I would buy that motorcycle if Harley allowed it. 🤑

  12. Patrick Frickel November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Please don't repeat FUD stories that are unverified allegations. There are so many of them and they only confuse people.

  13. Timothy Whitehead November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Re: Cobalt. Just to be clear, reduced use of cobalt and thus lower cobalt prices on the world market will NOT help those child laborers in the Congo. At best it will harm them.

  14. Timothy Whitehead November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Rather than restricting speeds for autonomous vehicles, they should increase penalties after accidents for poorly thought out autonomous driving technology. From what I have heard about the Uber accident, it was an avoidable event caused by really poor software. The reality of autonomous cars is that it is relatively easy to now days to create a car that can drive itself 99% of the time, but that 1% of the time is the hard bit that you really need to get right, and Uber clearly just ignored. Seriously, someone crossing the road in front of a car is the FIRST thing to test and relatively easy to test repeatedly until you get it right.

    Is the title correct? TEN 230? Shouldn't it be 231?

  16. asix November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    For the GM bike they want advise naming, they should call it the EV2, no? lol

  17. Cloxxki November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    FC is obviously a financial fan/expert which Musk absolutely is not (and has been SEC penalized for).
    What a silly item to add. I'd rather think it's the reversed baseball cap kid from HyperChange. But there are millions of other suspects.

    Great content!!

  19. ilotitto November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Loved this format

    Canada Electrified Vehicles sales are about 2.4% of all motor vehicles, and 8% of passenger cars only. The original article leaves out the 2.4% factor, but does mention that passenger car sales are small compared to SUV, Vans, pickups.

    Ontario was leading the was with their CAN$14,000 incentive, but that’s gone, so it will be interesting to see what the EV sales are in Q4 2018 and Q1 2019.

  21. bikebudha01 November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Can you guys at TE dig into the Evoke Kruzer project electric bike???

  22. bikebudha01 November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Damm good channel this is…

  23. ForestNinjaZero November 8, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    118th – Maybe it's Elon Musk who doesn't know that he's a dog.
