Are Tesla Model I and Model 3 Complementing Green Nev Deal?
This week, Tesla announced the launch of another SUV model that will add its full electric car catalog: Model I. The upcoming Model I has an alleged sticker price of just under $ 40,000, which is about 10% more than the mass appeal of the Tesla Model 3. Like another new kid in the block, Green Neval (GND), Model I faces the challenge of achieving multiple objectives.
In its most basic version, Model I needs to satisfy consumer demand for different characteristics while at the same time bearing a mark that can be compared to existing internal combustion engines (ICE), and GND should mitigate the skeptics that its vision of clean energy is practical in the market. Does Tesla Model I (and Model 3) and GND each provide enough ecological and "economic mobilization" to be the breakthrough sustainability leaders?
Tail. Alekandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NI) and Sen. Ed Markei (D-MA) have brought a critical need for the US focus on climate change with the GND and its emphasis on a national low carbon economy. GND has goals to improve the climate, make the clean energy market more competitive and create a green workforce. Article in the article Washington posthowever, claims that the GND "unites liberal misconceptions about climate change: that technology and consumption can spare us hard reform work."
Which question makes more sense? And does Model I help fill that gap of "hard work on reform"?
Electrification of everything, especially transport
Henry Olson in Washington post says Green Nell Deal (GND) is "a fantastic dream for hoses and horses for the persecution of socialism."
The common mantra for achieving zero carbon emissions is the electrification of everything, and the GND, with the goal of achieving "100% zero emission of passenger vehicles" by the year 2030 and "100% fossil-free until 2050". electrification (although the resolution is not explicitly stated). Many people state that aggressive electrification of the ways we drive, powering our personal energy devices and regulating temperatures in our homes can make the difference that we need to decarbonise our world.
ICE technologies that drive most of our transport today are essentially inefficient. Less than a quarter of the energy consumed is used to drive the vehicle – the balance is rejected as waste heat. If we choose electricity to power our vehicles of all sizes and capacities, more than 90% of the energy that is dedicated to our personal transport would be beneficial. Let's do it in a different way. We could ensure the propulsion potential of one gallon of gasoline by replacing only 8 kilowatt-hours (kVh) of electricity.
Still a Mother Jones article claims that "electric vehicles are not nearly ready for wide adoption." What does Tesla seem to prove to be correct or wrong? What does the market behind Tesla indicate?
What progress does the new Tesla I model (and currently available model 3) bring to achieving full electric transport and the future without carbon?
Improve battery power for an EV audience
In order to electrification in all sectors, it was considered useful, according to the white paper from 2019 Useful electrification of transport and addition of CleanTechnica, must fulfill one or more of the following conditions, without having any negative impact on others:
- saves consumer money in the long run;
- Enable better network management;
- improving the quality and characteristics of the vehicle;
- reduce the negative impacts on the environment.
Useful electrification seeks to exploit technological trends to benefit consumers, network operations and the environment, but is historically limited by battery costs. It changes.
The biggest difference in the initial cost between the EV and ICE vehicles is the battery charge. This cost difference is decreasing throughout the market and can often be offset by lower operating costs. In the case of Tesla Model 3 or Model I, vehicles are actually now better than ICE alternatives to similar prices in many objective ways. In other words, the cost difference has gone and has even changed.
There is at least one electric vehicle in the market on the market which is better than other vehicles at its price. There is another, Model I, on the road for several years. Other manufacturers are not yet at this level, but technological trends and trends in the auto industry show that they will be in a few years. They should also create electric vehicles that exceed ICE vehicles in their classes, except in niche situations.
Collection and achievement of greater economic equality
Green Nev Deal calls for correcting systemic injustices for communities that are disproportionately affected by environmental issues and economic inequalities. Tesla Model I, a luxury vehicle that enters a private, proprietary charging infrastructure, raises questions about the fairness of electrification. But, perhaps, the objectives of the Model I are not as distant as they could be seen for the first time.
For example, Tesla and the city of Pasadena have agreed with a five-year plan that will allow cooperation on the construction of the largest EV system for fast charging in the western United States. Tesla will install 24 of its Supercharger on the central roof of the garage as well as the basic electrical wiring needed to install another 20 quick chargers.
Such cooperation is in the heart of Tesla Model I and GND – transforming the market to attract potential consumers in all social strata.
Moreover, local pollution often damages communities with lower incomes. Cleaning the air in any way possible for everyone living in the city will be beneficial to people who can not afford Tesla.
In addition, most new technologies are expensive and have to be bought by rich people before costs can be reduced and sold to low-income populations. It was the essential idea of the Tesla Plan for the 2006 Mystery Plan – to produce a costly and costly sports car (the initial Tesla Roadster), use money to produce cheaper, but still luxurious luxury vehicles (model S and model Ks)), and use money from them to produce even cheaper electric vehicles in the mass market (model 3 and model I). Tesla on this road brings electric cars to many more households, and the next logical step is even more affordable Tesla (model 2?) For another level of auto market – the highest level.
Transformation of the transport is in progress, as is evident from the noise surrounding the issue of the Tesla Model I. As the months continue, we will learn more about the specificities of this fully electric vehicle and its economic and practical way forward.
Green Nev Deall's ambitious goals – reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40% to 60% by 2030 – can not be met by electrification alone. Bloomberg reports that even with the switch to electric vehicles in the mass market, "half of the world's oil consumption would remain intact." GND's objectives will require states to develop integrated resource planning to anticipate the potential for electrification of transport and its effects on the electricity system. Investments will have to be focused on known and future payment needs, and the needs of each community will vary.
But the Tesla Model I is another part of that big and far-reaching puzzle named GND. Each of them is working to bring us to a completely sustainable future. Everyone is talking about ways in which transport must turn from a dirty, unjust system to sustainability and economic justice
