It's just silly they would do this. How many people attending this car show will fall for that? I get hyping your product, but what's that saying? Figures lie when liars figure. Boy did they live up to that one.
VW just following my playbook from last month!
You do realize that electrek blatantly lies in the article to support Tesla. I am not supporting VW and their bullshirt, but I do expect some honesty and integrity in news reporting.
It is hard to predict, especially about the future.
(some ol' base ball player [be]come coach would say that when asked who'd win the next game)
Can you point out some of the lies?
Saying that a future M3 will have 300 mile range, which is "almost" 600km. I'm not saying what a future M3 might be capable of, but there is no reason to grossly exaggerate when you have already caught VW with their pants down.
@dansplans, they are converting first from EPA range to NEFZ range first, then from miles to km, and they say "pretty close" to 600... I don't think it's too much of a stretch. Maybe should be around 565km.
300 miles is roughly 480Km so saying it's "almost" 600Km is way off.
Given that the P100DL will get 315 miles of range, and the yet to be released 100D will surely get much more than that, the M3 with a bigger battery configuration should easily be able to exceed 300 miles of range. We will have to wait and see what the battery options are but I would bet they will have one that exceeds 300 miles.
@howie - the conversion factor from EPA to NEFZ is about 1.2 to 1.4 from what I've read.
So, 300 miles EPA times 1.6 km/mile times 1.2 NEFZ/EPA = 576 km NEFZ. That's close to 600.
@ UnshodBob - Sorry, I was using actual conversion... my bad :)
