EV & RE myth busting time, again. A blog for the many EV skeptics going on with their whataboutery. Wrt India, the first argument used is of Electricity generation. Yes, we are coal reliant, for now. We are pushing towards Renewable Energy at an increasing pace. Here's the current breakdown of installed capacity. India has achieved >40% installed RE capacity, years ahead of its 2030 goal. India aims to achieve ~50% of its energy via renewables by 2030, as announced by PM at CoP26. Another question asked is, what in case of a natural disaster? or war? Well these circumstances are not normal. How would you transport oil or coal during a disaster? Renewables and Energy Storage are best answer in these case. How? Micro Grids. Locally produced and stored energy, not dependent on a far more centralised system as in case of fossil fuels. Disruption in one place won’t affect others. But what about battery production? Yes, it is increasing every day. More and more companies are jumping in to make batteries. Here’s a forecast from Benchmark Minerals. Production by 2030 could easily exceed these. Battery tech advancement is just starting. More companies are jumping into R&D and production. Cost of batteries and RE weren’t at a level a decade earlier as they are today. No one solution needs to fit every place, RE and Batteries fit most. Humans will sort out rest also. Another point often raised is minerals required for batteries. World has enough of them. Innovation is continuing to make batteries and vehicles efficient. LFP batteries use much more common materials. They have '0' cobalt use. Research on Sodium Ion batteries is going in also. For those unaware, cobalt is used much more in fossil fuel industry than in batteries. It is extensively used for desulfurization. You CAN NOT recycle fossil fuels, but YOU CAN recycle batteries. And it is not something that will happen in future, it’s happening now. Redwood Materials, Tesla Giga Nevada, Attero in India are some examples of companies recycling batteries. Here is great video by CNBC about the same: https://www.cnbc.com/video/2021/04/10/jb-straubels-redwood-materials-ex-tesla-cto-tackles-battery-recycling.html "Attero Recycling has also partnered with MG Motors to recycle Li-ion batteries fitted in the brand's ZS EV units." Tesla also has battery recycling at Giga Nevada. And every new Tesla Battery Cell factory is going to have recycling facility also. No one is going to waste these precious batteries now. But what about power source, if it's from coal it is no use? Well, EVs are cleaner even when powered by fossil energy. As reported in Forbes-- "A new study by the universities of Exeter and Cambridge in the UK and Nijmegen in the Netherlands has concluded that electric cars lead to lower carbon emissions overall, even if electricity generation still relies on fossil fuels." "The idea that electric vehicles or electric heat pumps could increase emissions is essentially a myth," said lead author Dr. Florian Knobloch, from the University of Nijmegen. "Even in our worst-case scenario, there would be a reduction in emissions in almost all cases." It is also shown in Tesla’s 2020 impact report. Lifetime emissions in EU, NA & China. The chart comparing China’s average emissions to a province in china with green grid shows that in both cases, EVs are cleaner than ICE. Here’s more proof. ICCT report. EVs are cleaner, even in India. Here’s another India specific ICCT report- "EVs can get cleaner over their lifetimes as the energy that powers them gets cleaner. India is already deploying renewables at a healthy rate, and a delay in switching to EVs would result in, among other things, a failure to capture the full gains possible from the cleaner grid as it materializes. And passenger cars are often on the road for 15 years in India." And even if it wasn’t for Climate Crisis, EVs are far better because they help reduce local air pollution. There’s no noise. There’s possibility to ‘fuel’ at home, even using Solar. None of this is possible incase of ICE. Here’s a great representation from PluginIndia. No one takes in account emissions for production, refining & transportation of fossil fuels when they compare to EVs. As per report- "By weight, 40% of maritime trade consists either of fossil fuels on their way to be burned or of chemicals derived directly from fossil fuels." It is just insane. EVs are just ridiculously efficient compared to anything else. And it is something that isn’t changing. EVs will remain efficient. But are EVs enough? No. We need revolution in industries also. And that’s where hydrogen has potential, not on road transportation. Here are brilliant 2 part articles on hydrogen. Part I- Separating hype from Hydrogen: The Supply Side Part II- "Hydrogen’s role in the final energy mix of a future net-zero emissions world will be to do things that cannot be done more simply, cheaply and efficiently by the direct use of clean electricity and batteries." Can EVs be absolutely clean? No. No human activity will ever be absolutely clean. Are EVs relatively clean? Yes. Can they be made more cleaner? Yes. How? With improvement in battery tech, vehicle efficiency & renewable energy. Overtime grid is going to get greener, so will EVs. Overtime a ICE is going to get dirtier. You can also read one of our previous blog countering some myths also. And time to focus on hybrids was few years ago, not now. Main focus need to be BEVs. Here's our blog on this. Solution to fossils isn’t instant, it will take time & will only happen if we start now. To be fair, should have started a few decades earlier, but anyway. Right now, we don’t need to be stuck in the propaganda of businesses/persons who benefit from fossils. Not to mention fuel & maintenance savings on a EV. Go Electric to save money, if not for environment. Nikhil Chaudhary & Garvit Singh Team Tesla Club India Building a Community For The Future.

In Kona Owners
Akhil Krishnan did a ~1800km Road Trip in his kona. Here it is compiled, as shared by him on twitter. Couple of weeks back, did a ~1800 km drive in our Kona. Was a seamless drive experience thanks to the good network of DC fast chargers across the main highways in Southern India now. Attached is the route map & the drive stats, followed by some brief trip notes in this thread as below. Route planned: Day 1: Bangalore - Chennai. Day 2: Chennai. Day 3: Chennai - Coimbatore-Alathur. Day 4: Alathur-Mararikulam-Alathur. Day 5: Alathur-Coimbatore-Coorg (Siddapur). Day 6: Coorg. Day 7: Coorg-Bangalore. Started Bangalore to Chennai with 58% SoC with the usual plan to have 20min charge stops at Krishnagiri & Vellore each. Just as we were nearing Shoolagiri, had a bad tyre failure/cut, writing off the tyre & had to opt for a Bridgestone replacement (stock is Nexen) from a shop nearby. One hour later was back on the road, charged up at zeoncharging Krishnagiri, and later at MG Vellore before we reached Chennai. Total journey time including the unplanned stops + charge- 6.5 hrs. ITCGrandChola were happy enough to provide a 16A socket to charge up overnight. Had about 100-150km of driving around in Chennai to do, so started with 70% SoC. Got the stock low resistance Nexen tyre in Chennai, so had it fixed because I didn't want the range to drop because of one mismatched tyre. Finished my work & got back to ITC around 11pm and plugged in. Was at full 100% 8 hours later, and was good to go by 7 am. This was going to be the longest I'd driven the Kona in a single day ~600km. We had a relaxed start, left for Coimbatore by around 1pm. Reached @zeoncharging Tindivanam by 2.45 & left by 3.30 after a lunch + charging stop. Next stop was Zeon at Attur. This stretch (Tinidivanam-Attur) was empty and made for some really fast progress. Did 180km in 1.75 hours and as a result, reached A2B/Zeon at Attur with 10% left, around 5.15pm. Plugged in and left the car to have a coffee & snack. Within a few minutes, there was a crowd around the Kona made up of people who were really interested in the cost/range etc. Interest in EVs are real & looks promising! Left here at 6pm, would've left ~15 min sooner (the car was done charging), but spent that time talking to people. Next stop was Zeon Avinashi. We didn't have to stop there (had enough range to reach Zeon Navakkarai) but it was a new location and wanted to check it out for future travel plans. Reached the location (Hotel Tiruppur Sree Annapoorna) around 8.45pm. There was a brand new Nexon charging up there, and he was already at around 85% SoC, and the charging speed had already dropped to ~15kW. He wanted another 10 min so decided to let him finish. But that 10 min turned into 45 mins because he was insistent that he get the full 100%. The Tata salesman who sold him the car had fed him some BS about the battery getting damaged if he didn't charge to 100% every time + an even bigger "golden" tip to not touch the car when charging. The owner wouldn't listen to me no matter what, so gave up & waited for him to hit 100%. I could've had my dinner in this time, but another Nexon showed up and I didn't want to lose my spot having waited this long. Finally the Nexon hit 100% and I plugged in and went to have my dinner. Stopped the charge at 50% and left around 10pm. Dropped the wife off at Coimbatore by 10.45,carried on towards my place in Alathur, KL. At the Walayar TN-KL border, was stopped by the KL cops for entry checks, but they were more interested in the Kona! 15 min later, they let me go. Reached my place around 12AM. Drive stats attached. Plugged in to my 7.2kW portable charger, at the 20A setting. Normally I charge as slow as possible, since I spend at least a full day here without driving anywhere. But I had to run around the next day for around 225km or so, and I wanted a quick charge up. By 7AM it was at 80%. Drove into the new Kuthiran tunnel (finally!) towards Thrissur, was done running errands and back home by 6pm with 9% left. Plugged in again for a 100% charge at 20A, since I had to leave for Coorg at 7 am the next day, with a distance of 390km to be covered. Left by 7 am, reached Coimbatore by 8, picked up the wife and attended a function near Brookefields Mall. Since the mall had a Zeon 25kW DC charger, charged up from 70 to 90% while we were away at the function (convenient!). Finally we left Coimbatore around 12.30. We had added exactly 20% at Coimbatore, so if we hadn't charged there, would've reached Mysore with just 2% left (range anxiety kicks in below 5% for me!). Zeon at Mall of Mysore is a great location,with good food options in and around the mall.Spent exactly 30 min here and left.% SoC. We had added exactly 20% at Coimbatore, so if we hadn't charged there, would've reached Mysore with just 2% left (range anxiety kicks in below 5% for me!). Zeon at Mall of Mysore is a great location, with good food options in and around the mall. Spent exactly 30 min here and left. Left Mall of Mysore by 5.15 and we reached Evolve Back in Siddapur around 7pm and 105km later, the last 30km of which was beautiful, winding forest roads. Had around 28% but didn't plan on going anywhere the next day so I didn't plug in when we reached. Plugged in around 12.30 PM the next day, the resort very kindly ran an extension box for me from a socket near their front office. Allowed it to charge really slowly at 10A/2.2kW overnight, since we were going to have a late mid morning start around noon. Left for Bangalore by 12pm & a 100% charge. The plan was to beat potential traffic buildup on the infamous Bangalore-Mysore highway by getting through during off-peak hours. Drove through non-stop and luckily had very light traffic. Reached Bangalore around 4pm with 28% left! Was a fantastic drive, and the detailed charge stops with cost is up in the 1st tweet of this very long (apologies!) thread. This is an effort to prove that multi-day drive itineraries are easily done in an EV without range anxiety, at a fraction of ICE cost! Thanks for reading!

Central Electricity Regulation Commission(CERC) recently released a Draft 'Ancillary Services Regulation'. Ancillary services refer to functions that help grid operators maintain a reliable electricity system(BESS etc). According to letter found by us, Tesla has commented on the draft and has sent it's suggestions & comments. We see this as a +ve sign from Tesla wrt India & hopefully we will soon see Tesla India Energy in action. - "Tesla believes that a complete set of market design rules supporting, providing of all grid services battery storage can provide, is an essential prerequisite to achieving India’s vision to integrate over 450GW of renewable energy by 2030. " -"The lessons learned from Tesla’s global engagements with market operators on batteries make it clear that for a large, complex grid such as in India’s, primary, secondary, and tertiary frequency control are “must-have tools” to ensure stability of the nation’s evolving power system." -"Based on our global experience, the overarching aim for ancillary service design should be to use co-optimised, market-based procurement where possible, and where not possible, structured procurement approaches." -"Market design should also try to enable new, lower-emission technologies to provide all ancillary services in addition to energy requirements and recognise that fast and flexible response is an increasingly important characteristic of a future energy system and should be valued as such." -"Tesla supports the introduction of ‘pay for performance’ elements that incentivise, recognise, and reward the accuracy and speed of response characteristics from providers of Ancillary Services." -"Tesla’s battery systems react automatically and almost instantaneously to locally measured changes in system frequency outside predetermined set points." In the letter Tesla was continuously referring to it's Australia Hornsdale Battery System. The success of that battery is something that Tesla can show to anyone, building confidence in Tesla, as well as on how to do things regulation wise. We are excited to see Tesla energy being an important of the Tesla India roadmap⚡️. *Extras:

Hey Guys Well we are impatient and hungry for every Tesla India info😂. About a month ago, I opened website in incognito mode and it redirected to link including null_IN. It happened everytime I clicked on Model 3/Y order. On checking the source code, nothing much appeared. Just some 404 starman image code lines. Today again, out of curiousity I set to check it again. This time it didn't redirect. It was on US page. I opened the source code. BOOM. Just Wow. India is under Asia Pacific region. Having seen India on careers and test drive page, I had doubts if it's something significant. Well north korea wasn't in code 😂. Careers and test drive page list all countries on Earth. So yes, India. Language English. Language Code en, local code en_IN. Local code is country specific to which website redirects from location. Then further I entered en_IN in model 3 url to see if something appears. No just 404 page. On checking its source code, it showed a lot more than what was in null_IN a month ago (whose screenshot idk where I saved). We tweeted this out, but some further investigation was required. We needed to confirm (unlike media). Well I sat off in a time machine informing Arun to handle club in case I never come back. Am here, so i came back. Just to be confirm, I visited every page starting January 2020. India didn't appear in Source code until February 14th and we couldn't have been more happier confirming this. And here's the source code This just shows that Tesla India progress is going on😉. And this is how we spent our Sunday. Please continue to support the Club. And do use the club forum.

Since we broke the news of Tesla's Registration in India, people are excited. We are too. It's surprising how many people, even from Automotive world are unaware of this. We have been receiving many dealership inquiries regarding Tesla from past few days.(We are not Tesla). We would like to tell all people out there that Tesla follows direct sales model. It doesn't follow traditional dealership model. Tesla opens & operates there showroom themselves. Image - Tesla Showroom Stanford Mall, CA via Tesla Owners Silicon Valley. Tesla Service centers are also operated by Tesla themselves. However in west Tesla do authorise some body shops to do Tesla body work. But we don't think we have much independent body shops, there are some in major cities. Let's see how it goes. But again Tesla doesn't follow traditional dealership model. The showroom employees are Tesla employees. Tesla hires them, train them. One orders a Tesla by going to tesla website. Select his/her desired vehicle configuration. Place the order. When vehicle is ready to be delivered, a Tesla employee contacts the buyer. At the time of delivery full payment can be made. Sign the papers and take your Tesla home. We hope this clears any doubt related to it.
