@dorsetphoto_JLP @nikkidoescrypto @kylecoolky @SuperSaf @elonmusk @Tesla I'm sure the marketshare im EV segment will shift soon when other manufacturers start to launch more EVs. You can check the sales numbers in Norway for example where Audis E-tron and Porsche Taycan has beem great success despite being more expensive than Model 3 for example.

Wake up Tesla fan boys. Why the Porsche Taycan EV's Two-Speed Transmission Is a Big Deal
It has often been stated that there is nothing Tesla does that can not be recreated or done better by an existing OEM if they wanted to. Till now no major OEM has put there reputation to this statement. Porsche and other Luxury and Performance OEM’s have a lot of face to save. The thrown at the drag strip has handily been on Tesla head for several years everyone knows it. Porsche is a pure luxury brand and has to have at least 1 product that sets it apart from other brands so it maintains its edge. Tesla’s performance crown was a means to an end it’s is how they built there brand how it’s maintained. Porsche on the other hand requires it. So Porsche will achieve some mile stones. They will have the highest battery density, the fastest charging , or fastest acceleration. And Porsche customers will pay the Porsche premium to have that title. At the end of the day they are not out to bring EV to the masses prove a more affordable battery tech or anything that moves the industry forward.
For me, I prefer old school manual shift cars as opposed to hybrids or electrics. So the Speedster would be my choice. Numbers on a page are great, and progressive, futuristic cars are great. But for involvement - a stick shift and a responsive engine and chassis is pure heaven.
The surging interest in electric vehicles, hybrids (HEVs), plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), battery electric vehicles (BEVs), and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) have caused a disruption in the automobile industry, which was previously centered on combustion engines. Technological advancements throughout manufacturing and supply chains are solving the limitations faced by the first generation of EVs, including a better range for vehicles and long-lasting batteries as well as better battery components while forcing a shift of focus from mechanical to IT and ,electronics in automobiles. Almost all the major players in the industry are already working on electric versions of their products in order to keep up with their competition and find relevance in the continuously evolving market. Here are the top revolutionary models to keep an eye out: Porsche Taycan: ,The very first EV by Porsche, Porsche Taycan, is a sports car that is ultra-sleek with the electrified four-door. It has 2 synchronous motors that generate in excess of 600 hp and have a target range of 300 miles. This enables the EV to reach 60 mph within 3.5 seconds. Volvo Polestar 2: ,This sedan by Volvois completely electric. It has a hp of 400 and the estimated mile range is 300. Mercedes EQC: ,The EQC is a very classy crossover SUV by Mercedes having 2 electric motors that generate 400 hp. This enables it to run 0-60 mph within 5 seconds and have a range of 279 miles. Tesla Model 3: ,Tesla is making many attempts to deliver a revolutionary EV and the Tesla Model 3 is one of its many upcoming electronic models released in the last year. Hyundai Kona Electric: ,With a powertrain with a horsepower of 201 hp and an estimated operating range of 258 miles, the Kona Electric is a fully electric version of Hyundai’s small crossover SUV. Kia Niro EV: ,The Kia Niro EV is a fully electric version of Kia’s compact crossover SUV which is set to release in 2019. This EV is driven with the help of a 64- kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery. Volkswagen ID: ,The Volkswagen ID is expected to be a series of EVs that will be affordable and powered by small batteries. BMW i3: ,With a futuristic look and impeccable style, the BMW i3 makes for a perfect city EV. Audi E-Tron: ,The Audi E-Tron is a luxury crossover SUV that is completely electric and is similar in size to Audi Q7. It has a 95-kilowatt-hour battery which is expected to deliver a 250 miles range. By working towards solving the pollution crisis, ,Electric Vehicles, will help in reducing the toxicity levels in the air, thereby reducing the cases of pollution-related diseases like asthma and lung cancer. EVs, therefore, will not only disrupt the automotive industry; they will also prove vital in giving our future generations a cleaner, greener, and more sustainable planet.
The near silent, instant squeeze in the seat from rest. My previous g force champion was the Superman Escape(Movieworld)rollercoaster near surfers paradise in Australia(fantastic place, lovely people, Australia zoo, thrill rides…best holiday ever). And the Tesla I rode in was much faster. A lot faster. Like wind you if you weren't ready faster. And you get to drive that? Holy shit man, the hype is real lol. Buuuut, now my eyes are opened to electric supercars, and it doesn't pain me to say this at all, having loved V8s all my life(and c'mon who doesn't), my new Fantasy Island car is… The Porsche Taycan. So ok, it looks like THIS, accelerates even harder than the Tesla that completely shifted my organs and scared the crap out of me, and to tick that final box, it's a Porsche. Man, if this is the future, sign me up!!! Anyway, to answer the question properly, Tesla made electric cars cool. And that matters. There would be no Porsche Taycan without Tesla, because before them there was a very niche, fringe market for electric cars. Elon Musk made electric cars a viable, everyday alternative. And it's no coincidence I see them everyday on the road, even here in ChCh Nz. So what is it that “shocked" me(I hope it was intended, it made me smile😁) the most about Tesla? Elon Musk is a freaking genius. EDIT: Thanks for all the upvotes and views guys and gals! 19,000 plus views and over 600 upvotes, for my poorly worded and grammatically awful answer. But I'll take it! Well wishes and the best of luck to you all🙂
In the early 21st century Porsche’s product planners and marketing teams have opted to try to confuse in an attempt to simplify and are then trying to take that “simplistic” approach for their gas-powered cars and apply it exactly to their newborn electric vehicle lineup. Wait…what? Exactly! Porsche has tried to follow the model used by other car companies to offer a consistent set of trim levels across (most/some/many) vehicles, the basic gist is: Base model -the name by itself a la Macan, 911, Cayenne S - slightly sportier, 2WD; think 911 S, Macan S, Cayenne S 4S - same as the S, but with 4WD; 911 Targa 4S. 4S is not applicable today with the Macan and Cayenne which already have 4WD. Once could argue that there really is no Cayenne S or Macan S and that both are truly 4S models, but Porsche isn’t always logical GTS - even sportier trim, higher powered engines, better brakes and some body trim/cladding to indicate this model is ‘special’ Turbo - once indicated the top road-going models which were also turbocharged, e.g., 911 Turbo. This was true until the last year or two at the end of a model cycle when… Turbo S - the super-special top-of-the-line road cars at the end of the model lifecycle were Turbo S models. Sporty and Turbo, hooray! GTx - designed more for track use, the GTx models, e.g., 911 GT3, 911 GT2 RS, Cayman GT4, are extra extra special models released in ‘limited volumes’ (not really, they will produce as many as they can sell) and the ones speculators target T - throwback models, extra super special with more road-going appeal R - special detuned GT models but more daily driveable Oh, I’m sure I’m leaving a few trims out so please add them in the comments. In 2020, virtually all trim levels of Porsche’s gas-guzzlers from the base on up have turbocharged engines - whoops. So as Porsche shifts its lineup to electric with the Taycan they thought they would repurpose this utterly simply delineation of trim levels by leveraging the same letters, initials and words as modifiers to the vehicle name. That’s a Porsche Taycan Turbo S - with no turbos because electric motors don’t use turbocharging. Turbocharging uses impellers driven by waste gas from engine combustion to force more air into the combustion chamber (while adding more fuel) to product more power from a fixed displacement engine. Spin the turbos faster, increase the air pressure in the cylinder, add more fuel and BOOM - more power. It’s a pretty ingenious way to add power to gasoline engines that has zero relevance in the world of electric vehicles So where does that leave the Taycan Turbo and Taycan Turbo S? Feeling a bit misbranded and confused in a rapidly changing world.
Yes, at a minimum they have a step down gear ratio because electric motor RPM ranges are much higher than what a cars wheel rotation speed would be at top speed. So they have at least one set of gears to change that ratio. And the vast majority only have this singular set (i.e. no transmission.) Note: that’s the vast majority don’t have a transmission, not that all of them don’t. The Porsche Taycan has a 2 speed transmission, even the original Tesla Roadster was originally designed to have a 2 speed transmission, but it was pulled do to issues with how much lag it had changing gears, and there are some Hypercars out there today with 2 speed transmissions. But that’s a very small percentage and only on cars that have a real dedication to top end speed. Note: Most cars with dual motor setup (one front and one rear) such as all of the Tesla Models Dual Motors do have different sets of gear ratios, one for the front and one for the rear. This allows for a high performance launch and lower energy consumption at top end. This isn’t to be confused with a transmission.
A tipping point appears to have been reached. Up until the end of 2019, the predominant view as expressed in the media was that Tesla is not a sustainable enterprise. The stock had been heavily shorted all year, and Wall Street analysts with few exceptions were skeptical of the company’s prospects. Many issued sell recommendations on the stock, and sell it did, dropping to $189/share on June 3, 2019. But since that low point, the story has changed dramatically. Concerns about demand for the Model 3 began to evaporate, Gigafactory 3 in Shanghai was being constructed at record pace, Model Y delivery projections were moved up from fall of 2020 to summer, and Tesla unveiled their Cybertruck prototype and quickly accumulated 250,000 pre-orders. When Tesla announced 3rd quarter results exceeding Wall Street expectations, the stock rose 30% in October, and by the end of the year it achieved an all time high passing $420/share. Tesla passed Daimler into third place behind Toyota and VW in terms of market valuation. Tesla was selling their Model 3 as fast as it could be manufactured, out selling all gasoline luxury class vehicle brands in the U.S. in the 2nd quarter before allocating more production to Europe and China to meet strong demand there as well. There could be no denying what Tesla had accomplished. Tesla was not going away. Tesla was setting the future direction of the auto industry, and the world was waking up to it. The early EV product offerings by Audi (e-tron) and Jaguar (I-Pace), could not measure up to Tesla’s standards of performance and features. Hyundai (Iconiq, Kona) were well regarded, but availability was limited, and Porsche (Taycan) couldn’t exceed Model S performance and driving range despite a hefty price premium. The handwriting was on the wall, and the tepid experimentation with electric vehicles by major auto companies began to change, notably at Volkswagen and Ford. VW committed to large battery purchase contracts for EVs, converted an ICEV factory in Zwickau, Germany to produce their ID.3 EV, and announced plans to build an EV factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Ford unveiled their Mustang Mach E SUV with a design that incorporated many features that Model 3 buyers rave about. Ford announced a $500 million investment in Rivian, the electric truck startup, presumably to gain the technology to produce an electric version of their F-150 pickup truck. These are just a couple of examples of the shift of attention that traditional auto makers are making in order to remain relevant in the growing electric vehicle market currently dominated by Tesla. Any auto company that doesn’t take serious steps in 2020 to build competence in EV technology, production, sales and service will be staring extinction in the face by 2030.
It’s pretty easy to answer this question with an emphatic ,NO, because you asked whether ,ALL, electric cars would have automatic transmissions. MOST, (but not ALL) EVs don’t even need a gearbox. A single gear is sufficient, because electric motors deliver full torque right from zero RPM, unlike internal combustion engines which have a sweet spot for peak torque that you have to use gears to stay within. As a result, a single, fixed reduction gear is sufficient for most EVs. Technically this is a transmission, and you could make the argument that it’s automatic because it doesn’t require any shifting on the part of the driver, but it’s certainly not an automatic transmission in the same sense as most people think of them. By the way, if you want to see an excellent video on automatic transmissions, check this out, and you can see what a crazy amount of expense and material can be saved by not having an automatic transmission in your car (and this video doesn’t even cover the necessary clutch packs and hydraulics for each gear set!) This is not to say that ,ALL, EVs only have simple reduction gears though. The torque curve of an electric motor does eventually tail off (at VERY high speeds though), so if you desire high power at high speeds, you will need a gearbox, and some performance EVs (like the Porsche Taycan) have a two speed gearbox. But for MOST EVs, this is largely unnecessary and they will simply be single speed transmissions. UPDATE: ,For comparison, here is a video that shows a complete Chevy Bolt EV drive train teardown including the reduction gear and the motor itself (as compared to the previous video which only showed one aspect of just the automatic transmission from an internal combustion engine):
I don’t think so. To revolutionize the electric car you need a bit of a paradigm shift in some of the technologies involved. The Taycan simply competes in the sport luxury segment. How well it will do, remains to be seen. I do hope they are successful.
