    Seems like the Mach E didn't complete the route. to put a cost on what it would cost to operate the Mach E is estimating and not as good as actual data. The EVs were not charged over night which skewed the study. That said, it seems to me like an electric car is going to do it for us. Its cheaper to operate, especially from home where we do most of our driving. They are going to last longer, much longer because they are simpler (between 3 and 7 times). And less maintenance. I would also pick the Tesla because they have a better design which wasn't part of the test. Every extra switch in that Ford is prone to failure. Its just the nature of the beast. More parts equals lower reliability. what with the crazy knob in the middle of the screen? The Giga is also a big factor. Managed by Tesla, built by Tesla and updated by Tesla. Hybrids are more parts and depend on gas. like the gas cars the iron will be recyclable for creating more battery packs. In addition, the ICE cars are going the way of the horse and buggy faster than you can imagine.

    No destination charging? Extremely misleading... Also, charging to 100% when not required? Misleading. I don't have a Tesla (yet) but I thought Tesla app figures out the most efficient charging effectiveness which would not be charging up to 100%.

    Yes, "edited" for punctuation, spelling and for clarity.
    "So have you ever wondered how much longer it would take to take a road trip in an electric car vs a gas car in 2021?"
    He and his team "decided to actually find the real answer, by really doing it and running it like a scientific experiment."
    He has "a set of rules".
    What are those rules, you ask?
    "The goal, is just to treat it like a normal road trip."
    On a "normal road trip", you would fuel the ICE car whenever required, or when a gas station was convenient.
    On a "normal road trip" an EV driver would most likely book a hotel near a Tesla Supercharger or with a destination charger which would allow them to charge over night while they slept.

    However, Marques specifically did not destination charge either of the EV's.
    "everyone wakes up on the second day with the same state of charge that they went to sleep with."
    The EV's had to begin the next day's journey with the amount of charge they arrived with at their destination.

    This test is seriously flawed!! NO EV driver would forego the opportunity of destination charging.
    That is a fundamental advantage that EV's have, destination charging, i.e. charging at home.
    Yes, ICE vehicles have the advantage of filling their tanks in just minutes.
    They allowed the ICE vehicle their advantage throughout the challenge, but they didn't allow the EV's their advantage of designation charging.
    You can't say, "we can't let the EV's charge at night, at their destination, because you can't fill a gas car up at night, at their destination".
    So what!??
    That's one difference between ICE & EV cars.
    Its one of the choices you have when you select to purchase your vehicle of preference.

    Besides, that's not really true is it?
    There's probably a gas station (or several) situated very close to the destination, where the ICE vehicle can fill up, either before or after reaching their destination, as they would on a "normal road trip".
    If this was going to be a true representation of how a 1000 mile journey in an EV really compares to an ICE car, then the EV's should have been allowed to charge at their destination.
    That would have noticeably reduced their trip time.
    It's the same thing that makes EV's advantageous to own, you can charge them at home while you're sleeping, or while you're doing anything else at your home.
    You don't have to go to a public charger and you don't have to go to smelly gas station.

    Also, did I hear Marques correctly??
    Did the Tesla deviate from the course to get some photo ops at destinations off the beaten path, a path not duplicated by the Audi??

    Wait: no destination charging, and charging the BEV up to 100%? This is not how it's done in reality. Why making the Tesla look bad intentionally? Could have been tied between the Tesla and ICEr. It's this kind of content that skews societal impressions that BEVs aren't good enough. They are, they just have to be used normally/properly/as intended and not in the worst way possible. Sheesh.

    I'll say it again, they should've built wide spread chargers before ever building electric cars in the first place.
    When you buy a gas car, you know you'll be able to gas it up and go.
    Electric should be the exact same, and faster. Half an hour is way too long.
    I shouldn't buy a car and be worried if I'll get home from some emergency trip or not.

    I'm seeing a lot of bashing against Ford, but the real major problem is the quality of the charging network. It's incredible to see so many chargers out of order or malfunctioning... Will be interesting to see how well the Tesla Supercharger network handles non-Tesla vehicles.

      ​@Toby Jackson They've been continuously investing into a network, (FordPass Charging Network) and yes it's still nowhere near as good as Tesla's supercharger network, especially since Ford doesn't make their own charging stations. Considering alternative EVs also exist, this isn't just a Ford problem. It's everyone that isn't Tesla's problem. Once Tesla removes exclusivity of their chargers, it will be quite different.

    • Toby Jackson

      But isn't that also on Ford? Surely they should have invested in a charging network before pushing their cars out? Here in the UK you have Tesla obviously with their Supercharger network, but also the likes of Nissan who put rapid chargers at almost every dealership across the country. Porsche have done similar at their dealerships. And Volkswagen have invested big money in the Ionity public charging network which is rapidly expanding. If the manufacturer wants customers to have a good experience, they have to show at least some interest in the charging for these cars since it's a new technology that needs to grow. If they aren't willing to put their money where their mouth is and push forward with it, they're basically already setting themselves up to fail.

    from lake george to lake placid looking at google maps using bike mode it shows that the road has over 1900 ft of elevation head up to lake placid but then drops nearly 1600 ft going into Pulaski which would help with regen so would not need a full charge at lake placid which would also save 20mins due the tapering effect on the battery from 80-100% soc

    Next car will be electric.
    My current daily driver is 2012 Nissan Leaf. Gets around ~50-60 miles on a full charge around L.A.
    My wife drives MB 250e. Much better car from a ride perspective and lux features. Gets 80-90 miles on a full charge.
    Road trip car - Lexus LX470. We go camping in the desert during winter or along the coast in warmer seasons. I don't think I am getting rid of it as it is such a versatile vehicle.
    Next car will replace either Leaf or 250e - depending which one develops a problem first. And I'll try to get a used ~200 mile car in its place. I won't buy a sub 100 mile vehicle as it is just too limiting.

    • Toby Jackson

      Assuming neither cars give you trouble and remain reliable, I would personally say ditch the LEAF first. Especially a 2012 model it will have the very early battery chemistry which was prone to bad degradation, and has no battery cooling system. Not only this but if you need to rapid charge it, CHAdeMO is being killed off and you'll see it fitted to less and less chargers as time goes on. Range will only continue to drop as will it's value. The B250e obviously can't rapid charge at all, but it will charge faster on AC, and most models also have 'RangePlus' mode for longer trips. Battery degradation is much less of a worry thanks to active cooling, and all of the electric drivetrain and battery system is made by Tesla for Mercedes. They have proven themselves by now to know what they're doing so I would probably have more faith in that to last longer than the LEAF. When it does come to replacing it, I would strongly recommend the Hyundai Kona EV. As long as it's physically large enough for your needs, it's hard to find something better without spending Tesla amounts of money. Not only do they have 64kWh batteries but also are super efficient with how they use the energy. Very long range, very low rates of battery degradation, lots of features, and rapid charge speeds of up to 75kW.

    I feel like part of this test is a little disingenuous. First by overcharging the evs at some spots which wasted time, and 2nd by not letting them charge at the hotel. You say the Hotel stop was only for sanity and not part of the test, but very few people would attempt to drive 18hrs straight.
    If you redid this test like that and with the understanding of the charge network I think the Tesla would come in only 20 mins slower, and the Mache probably 1 to 1.5 hrs due to less range.

  • Samuel Ursuta

    Why did you not charge at the hotel overnight? EV drivers like myself choose a hotel with a charger, often getting free charge and a full battery by the morning. I don't care the gas car doesn't get a full tank at the hotel, since they don't have fuel pumps. That's the disadvantage of the gas car and the advantage for the electric cars. It's real life.
    And why did the electric cars return with so much charge left? It's basically lost time.
    And why did you charge the Tesla to 100% that one time? Again, it's lost time as the top of the battery charges slower.

    I see two problems here. The Tesla should of beaten the gas car in terms of total time. First off, it could of charged at the hotel overnight so you wake up with a full charge. Now say if you didn't stay at the hotel and decide to make this one continuous trip, the tesla would of only needed one charge. While stopping for breaks or food, i'm sure there were outlets that could of been used to charge with since there are more outlets in the country than there are gas stations. Also the Tesla has 5 times the horsepower and torque than the Audi. To be fair, a gas car with 1050hp needs to make that trip and see how often it stops for gas.

    Ford is still way ahead for the charge network integration over other manufacturers. I have hope that it will continue to improve over time. Tesla just put a priority on the chargers since they needed them for their own plugs. Tesla has been ahead of the competition for a while and this proves that.

    I'll still be with gasoline cars since charging infrastructure here in Malaysia is way way behind. I probably need to carry those portable gasoline generators for road trips 🤪

    This is very great but I think adding the $$ would also be helpful I thought

    Great video, however even though the Tesla took longer I feel with the car driving you it would be well worth it.
    Also most of the time people aren’t racing to get to the end point and it would be common to stop for a 30min lunch / dinner break when driving for 12hrs. So the stopping for charging isn’t that big of a deal.
    I have a model 3 with just over 100k on it and have driven 1,500 plus mile road trips numerous time I throughly enjoy every min I spend in my Tesla.

    Great video! My next car will likely be an electric daily driver (Tesla Model S) or a gas sports car (any that I currently like).

    I picked up a Polestar 2 about a month ago. 100% of my driving is within the range of the car. At my home, I can charge for 1.5 cents per KWH. If I had to take a road trip, which I wouldn't, I also have a gas-powered car, so I would take that.

    Still going with diesel. Here in Morocco the infrastructure isn't there yet. No Tesla network. No Tesla dealership. And those who buy taycans of other IVs are struggling with the Shell and Total electric chargers.

    Man, you can't even fault ford on that performance, sounds like Electrify America needs to get it together. Not a good look for EV's tbh

    May be one factor you missed is the cost of travel in each of the three vehicles

    I won’t get an electric vehicle till they have standardized charging stations…I have enough anxiety when my phone is at 5% battery and no one around me has a apple cable 😒

    One of each. Already have a gas powered vehicle so the next one will be an electrical. Simple reason is gas for hauling and long range driving and electric for daily use.

    Driving a Charger scat pack now, another gas car will be next, unless Tesla adds apple carplay/android auto and gets better with right to repair, or until another manufacturer gets the tech right.
