  • Marques Brownlee would take the Porsche Taycan if they had a supercharger network established like Tesla https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAZX9p2oGOg

    I went on 4 road trips with a 200 miles car, not fun in the cold adirondacks mountains during the night

    Porsche driver didn't have that issue on his 11,000 mile cross country, North South trip in Canada in Canadian Winter. Apparently the Porsche heater works great.

    And that was close to a year ago, hundreds of fast DC chargers are going in all the time. The older 50kW EVgo's have a Chademo and CCS adapter so the charging infrastructure is there now.

    As some of the MachE buyers have noticed N/S Dakota, Wyoming and most of rural Minnesota are EA dead zones, 0.005% of US population.

    11,000 miles is quite a letdown relative to your earlier claim that the Taycan owner was able to circumnavigate North America.

    An 11,000 mile road trip may be epic, but when you oversell it by a huge amount, it's a let down.

    Perhaps you merely thought the continental United States is all of North America?
  • Everyone knows he just throws half truths and lies. Look at his big lie when he joined the forums.

    He just drove it, he wasn't selling it to anyone, just a demonstration that a 200 mile rated EV could do an 11,000 mile coast to coast, border to border run in US/Canada using public charging and do it in the Winter.

    ""The charging network for “everyone else” (that is, non-Teslas) got a slow start, but it is catching up quickly. This trip proves a non-tesla EVs can drive almost anywhere in the US, and all the way from coast to coast in Canada. The network isn’t perfect. It isn’t always smooth. Often it takes two or three tries to get a charging session going. But in the end, it always works. On rare occasions, you might need to drop back to a Level 2 charger, and go read a book. But eventually, you’ll get there. And with more and more DC Fast chargers coming online all the time, it will just get easier and smoother."

    ""Long road trips in a Taycan are much easier than I expected. The car is supremely quiet and comfortable. I could easily drive 8 or 10 hours a day without problems. On the last day, I drove (and charged) for 17 hours, covering over a 1000 miles."

  • You oversold the story, saying a driver circumnavigated a 9-and-a-half-million square mile continent. Clicking the story and learning the truth of your gross exaggeration or your ethnocentric mistake was the letdown.

    11,000 miles circumnavigating North America is 11,000 miles circumnavigating NA...sorry the reality disturbs the Phanbois but there it is.

    The Porsche was able to do the circumnavigation due to Canada's electric highway as public charging in NS Dakota's and Wyoming is lacking but by running via Canada it worked.

    What's disturbing is your insistence that the continental United States is North America.

    How did that help in Greenland? How did that help in Panama?

    Same issue as North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.
  • Willful ignorance
  • @FishEV

    Please enlighten us as to what charging in North Dakota, South Dakota, or, Wyoming have to do with traveling to Greenland and Panama when circumnavigating North America? You may even cite lack of charging in your answer if you'd like.

    There are really two possibilities here:
    (1) The fish doesn't know what it means to circumnavigate, and/or
    (2) The fish doesn't know that North America isn't The United States of America.

    Although he likes to portray himself here as a man in his mid-to-late fifties, his antics are more typical of someone in his early-to-mid twenties. I go with (2); that type of misunderstanding, rather than vocabulary, is more likely in a young adult.
  • Indignorant.
  • My colleague says he prefers Porsche because he is a « Purist »

    He didn't drive his car in any of those places.
  • That's not what you meant.
  • > @TabascoGuy said: > That's not what you meant.

    Then why did you ask what I meant?
  • For the benefit of others.
