Probaly someone already said it before: lightyears is a measure of distance (the distance light travels in a year) not time, so "lightyears per yer" makes big sense! Anyways, KWh/h makes sense also since it's a measure that describes produced electrical energy per hour (for Bjørn in norwegian: no.wikipedia.org/wiki/KWh/h) Nice video tho!

Lightyear per year makes no sense because it means speed of light. Way easier to obmit year.

Thanks for this very cool real life review. I especially like the strong focus on charging! Have you already tried the MOOVILITY app? In my opinion a must have tool for every EV driver. A very handy app that gives you all the relevant information like location and real-time availability of chargers across operators. Even a pricing comparison is included and it works perfectly with Alexa voice commands. Check it out. You´ll love it!

The bottom-line is that, wherever you live, EV's are a pain in the ass. Perhaps when solid-state batteries arrive with double the range and 10 minute charging, this will change. Until then though, you'll live your life in perpetual "deep shee-it". For now, go for a plug-in hybrid.

A lightyear is not a time unit. It's a distance. 7 lightyears a year is a speed, equal to 7 × c (the speed of light).
svilponis 3 dager siden
@Bjørn Nyland You laughed ironically at unit kW•h/h and told, that it is almost like to say 7.2 lightyears/year, which is speed of light (actually it's 7.2 × c). And that it does not make sense to say lightyears/year. My point is, that a lightyear/year makes very much sense, but it's still not comparable with kW•h/h, that is very normal unit. You can present most of units in different ways. W=J/s, so kW = 1000 J/s. 1 kW•h = 1000 J / s • 3600 s. Etc

@Bjørn Nyland kW•h is a unit of energy amount. As people are used to follow car's consumption by consumed fuel units per hour, kW•h/h makes perfect sense. J/h was even better in SI context, but people are not so accustomed with Joule, as their electricity bill tells about kw•h-s.

Hi Björn. I appreciate your videos. mall question. You charge at so many different chargers. Couldn't you mention the price difference. I believe that this is also an important issue in the choice of the cars. In Denmark, Tesla Supercharger is 2,60Dkr, and some Ionity 8,50Kr !! So if you compare Tesla with a Audi E-Tron , the driving price difference is enourmous.

But let me teach you what light-year is. It's the distance that the light travels in one year. So light-year per year basically means the speed of light. That's exactly what I was explaining in this video.

Was the car moving when you saw a unit of kWh/h? If not, should you expect at the dashboard an information of infinite kWh/100km?? This is what you suggest VW to do? Most brands do not show instantaneous consumption when the car is not moving. Because it is infinite of course, no matter if it's an electric or a petrol. In this car, 7.2KWh/h means exactly this. If you don't move, after one hour you have wasted 7200Wh which is a measure of energy. Of course this makes sense because the hour in kWh is not the same as the h below in the division. So, they do not cancel as you said. W of course would be a unit of power.

As an electrical engineer, I completely get what you say about the redundant expression KWh/hr, but this cumbersome way of expressing power may initially make better sense to new people coming over from ICE cars that are equalizing KWh and liters (gallons, I'm in the US!) of gasoline in their heads as bundles of purchased energy. In my experience, most people are really fuzzy about the difference between a KW and KWh to begin with. Maybe a worldwide switch to EVs will finally clear this up for people, but maybe not. On the other hand, I suppose one could argue that VW shouldn't reinforce poor energy/power understandings too.

Sorry Björn, a short excursion into elementary physics: kWh/h makes actally sense, it looks odd I admitt that - since your car was stationary it showed to you the energy consumtion measured in kWh over the time of 1 hour, as it is kWh/100km when moving. And just for information lightyear is a distance!! so lightyear/year would make a speed
Bjørn Nyland
Bjørn Nyland 7 dager siden
Uh... I think you have to go back to physics class. kWh/h is the same as kW (power). But writing kWh/h is technically correct. But it's clumsy and can be simplified if you know some algebra. And again, watch the part where I talk about speed of light. Slowly.
Alexander Gunda
Alexander Gunda 7 dager siden
@Bjørn Nyland nope, sorry, only 1 lightyear/year is the speed of light 😉 Don't worry it is a common confusion - in this particular case (kWh/h) you can not simplify the hours because kWh is a measuring unit for energy (the amount of). On the other hand: would it be nice if the car would tell you which is the maximal power (kW - 😎) with which it can charge? Because this is a value which is available in the computer, so that you can make your decission which charger to use... just an idea! THX and keep up the good work!!!

Dear Bjoern. According physics, electrical energy is reported in Kilowatthours. Whereas kilowatt is meaning power. Wehen VW claims 7,2 kWh / h they mean the car consumes 7,2 kwh per hour. VW uses the same type of indication for fuel cars, where they typically show liter per hour als long as the car doesn’t run. This makes sense, as you don’t have a distance you can calculate with.

Batteries and their percentage displays do not work in cold. This seems to always be the case with smartphones and electric cars. They cannot compensate for the cold. Maybe it's impossible to factor in the cold effect? This theme repeats in every cold weather electric car test. Since the batteries haven't advanced at all in 20 years, I see no future for electric cars if you live in the north.

At 15:25, when you’re setting the following distance, you’re saying that you have excessive distance between you and the car ahead. But in fact, you are two seconds behind the car in front, which is a generally regarded minimum distance. Given the road conditions, you might want to increase that distance, not decrease it.

Absolutely disgraceful that in 2021 VW release their first proper EV that is built from the ground up to be an EV with this extremely poor charging performance with a cold battery what in the Hell were VW Engineers thinking ? A car that heats the battery won't allow you to heat it for fast charging, I'm sorry but this just isn't good enough in 2021, this is as slow as my 2015 Leaf charged at. The more I see these issues with new electric cars the more I'm going to keep my BMW i3 Rex, I don't have to worry about these serious issues and that's the way it should be because charging at 30-35 Kw seriously limits an electric cars usefulness. I would like to have known the actual battery temp, I bet it was no more than around 12 Deg C.
