Elon Musk's factory in Russia - Technology News


PRO ROBOTS Channel on Youtube shows you the story. Take a look at the PRO Robotics channel and in this issue see some high-tech news. Tesla factory in Russia, when the Roadster will learn to fly, news about Ilon Musk's Cybertruck, autonomous drones and new robots for the military, robot molecules capable of forming tissues and other high-tech news in one video! Definitely take a look at this informative video.

Tesla, Inc. is an American electric vehicle and clean energy company based in Palo Alto, California. Tesla's current products include electric cars, battery energy storage from home to grid-scale, solar panels and solar roof tiles, as well as other related products and services. In 2020, Tesla had the highest sales in the plug-in and battery electric passenger car segments, capturing 16% of the plug-in market (which includes plug-in hybrids) and 23% of the battery-electric (purely electric) market. Through its subsidiary Tesla Energy, the company develops and is a major installer of solar photovoltaic energy generation systems in the United States. Tesla Energy is also one of the largest global suppliers of battery energy storage systems, with 3 GWh of battery storage supplied in 2020.

It seems that a typical electric car like a Nissan Leaf (62-kWh battery) would take about 11.5 hours to charge from empty to full at home on a 240-volt Level 2 charger or could get to about an 80% charge in just 45 minutes if using a public Level 3 DC fast charger.

Higher voltage more "powerful." Consider voltage and amp-hours when you research specific batteries and during various cordless tool comparisons. Voltage measures the battery's energy, and amperes measure current. Batteries with higher voltages work with more powerful cordless tools and provide the energy required for most high-torque applications.

Greater current and higher voltages charge batteries faster, however there is a limit to what they can take.

Charging an electric car takes time. If using a 7kW unit, (could be installed as a home charging station) this takes about 3 to 5 hours to recharge an electric vehicle, according to the RAC. A 22kW point will be faster, typically charging a car in 1 to 2 hours, says the motoring organisation.

How much does it cost to "fill up" an electric car?

Most Canadian provinces have a set cost of electricity and then tax. In New Brunswick, for example, power costs $0.1059/kWh, and then gets a 15 percent tax. Some Provinces have a flat service fee.

Rates can also vary based on if the area is urban or rural. In Ontario, you could also get better rates if charge the car at night or any time on off-peak weekends.

All Level 2 public charging stations, (with the exception of Tesla), use the same plug standard, which means any car from any brand can use any Level 2 station across Canada and the United States. Many Level 2 public charging stations are free-to-use.

A full charge for Tesla will cost about $15. The cost to charge a Tesla Model Y is about $11.47 cents, or 4.7 cents per mile. The cost to operate an electric vehicle is substantially lower than the cost of a conventional gas powered car. It can be even cheaper when you charge your EV with solar panels. 

It seems that fuel costs are lower for an electric car. On average, it costs $300 to $400 per year to charge an electric vehicle. A typical plug-in hybrid costs about $700 per year. By comparison, a gasoline car can cost you $1,000 to $2,500 a year to fill up.
