Stumbled across a bunch of new Model 3 teardown videos by the talented Ingineer at https://www.youtube.com/user/Ingineerix/videos thanks to a YouTube notification.

I've only had a chance to watch 1.5 of the new ones.

'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)
'06 Prius

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Without any report (?) on the circumstances of this model 3's fire, or any statements re model 3 pack flammability by TSLA, you will need to form your own conclusions about what these photos may show about pack flammability.


Thanks for the real news.

A burnt car in a tow yard, that's certainly unique. A Honda in my neighborhood overheated and caught fire a few weeks ago, the end result was worse than this and it melted the rear of a car parked on front of it as well. Shocking that your first post back is unsubstantiated Tesla FUD, I guess you just could not resist.


Here is some for you. Please inform your friends and neighbors this summer of the dangers of the Nissan LEAF, the EV that can burn unsuspecting families if it goes over a curb. Then the sky falls and we all die.

Again, he doesn't own the product to gain first hand knowledge nor does he care to be objective. Ask yourself, why is he so obviously against it without real world usage himself?

Something doesn't add up. I would think that most (if not all EV users) would want all EV manufacturers to be successful. In my mind, quicker to clean up the planet. Nothing is perfect and some EV's are better than others.

People with experience owning the actual products should carry much more weight than speculating ones. Especially those who have owned different brands for comparison.

Someone vehemently and continuously deriding Nissan or Leaf (for example) would be aggravating and ridiculous if they hadn't owned any product. In fact, we would be very suspicious of their motive. If you own(ed) product and have praise or a beef, that is understandable and you can legitimately air your opinion.

I own several EV's and so do family members. It should not be surprising that IMO Tesla is currently the best electric vehicle with charging infrastructure on the market . That may change in the future.

That being said, I want more choices for myself and others for massive adoption to occur. Also, I believe that will not happen until there are economically priced EV's that are identical/better in every way than ICE. We need to keep all of these car companies in the game to produce EV's and help drive charging infrastructure.

Global warming needs to stop escalating.

It’s always a more credibly position if you have direct experience with things you own but not always necessary. Cleasrly everyone has a right to any opinion fact based or not, however some methods of delivery and refusing to take commom sense feedback over extended periods of time can become overly disruptive. I do agree that it’s entertaining when someone is more of an expert on a car I own and they have all the facts wrong. People often educated me about my LEAF when they had never sat in one;)

Tesla may hold some sort of record for producing products about which people with no actual experience espouse opinions.
