00:00:02,639 –> 00:00:07,040
what is up guys syed here and today i am

2
00:00:04,400 –> 00:00:08,639
in the tesla model 3 performance on

3
00:00:07,040 –> 00:00:11,040
facebook and instagram you guys asked a

4
00:00:08,639 –> 00:00:12,960
lot of questions regarding uh charging

5
00:00:11,040 –> 00:00:14,719
how long it takes i’ll answer all those

6
00:00:12,960 –> 00:00:16,240
questions in this video so there are two

7
00:00:14,719 –> 00:00:17,920
variants of the tesla model 3 that you

8
00:00:16,240 –> 00:00:20,480
can get in singapore the first one is

9
00:00:17,920 –> 00:00:21,920
the standard range plus and the

10
00:00:20,480 –> 00:00:24,800
performance which is the one i’m in

11
00:00:21,920 –> 00:00:26,880
today so the standard range plus is the

12
00:00:24,800 –> 00:00:29,279
cheaper version is the base tesla model

13
00:00:26,880 –> 00:00:30,960
3 the performance is the highest spec or

14
00:00:29,279 –> 00:00:32,640
the more attached variant so what are

15
00:00:30,960 –> 00:00:34,800
the differences between the standard

16
00:00:32,640 –> 00:00:36,239
range plus and the performance variant

17
00:00:34,800 –> 00:00:38,079
so there are a few differences number

18
00:00:36,239 –> 00:00:40,559
one is the range in the standard range

19
00:00:38,079 –> 00:00:42,559
plus is actually shorter than the range

20
00:00:40,559 –> 00:00:45,280
in the performance so for the standard

21
00:00:42,559 –> 00:00:46,559
variant you get about 448 kilometers and

22
00:00:45,280 –> 00:00:50,800
for the performance variant you get

23
00:00:46,559 –> 00:00:53,680
about 567 kilometers which is about 119

24
00:00:50,800 –> 00:00:55,440
kilometers more range as compared to the

25
00:00:53,680 –> 00:00:57,520
standard variant so when you’re looking

26
00:00:55,440 –> 00:00:59,039
at electric vehicles and you are looking

27
00:00:57,520 –> 00:01:01,760
at the range you will definitely see

28
00:00:59,039 –> 00:01:04,879
this acronym wltp so long story short

29
00:01:01,760 –> 00:01:06,880
what wltp is is basically a measure of

30
00:01:04,879 –> 00:01:08,720
range for electric vehicles based on

31
00:01:06,880 –> 00:01:10,320
real-world driving conditions so it’s

32
00:01:08,720 –> 00:01:12,960
meant to give an accurate range that

33
00:01:10,320 –> 00:01:15,600
your electric car can travel so that

34
00:01:12,960 –> 00:01:17,840
users don’t get range anxiety and you as

35
00:01:15,600 –> 00:01:20,400
a buyer you can make a more informed

36
00:01:17,840 –> 00:01:21,759
decision of the expected range of the

37
00:01:20,400 –> 00:01:23,680
electric vehicle so the second

38
00:01:21,759 –> 00:01:26,320
difference is the power output in the

39
00:01:23,680 –> 00:01:29,040
standard range plus you get about 321

40
00:01:26,320 –> 00:01:31,920
horsepower 420 newton meters of torque

41
00:01:29,040 –> 00:01:32,880
0-100 for that car takes about 5.6

42
00:01:31,920 –> 00:01:35,759
seconds

43
00:01:32,880 –> 00:01:38,079
and top speed is about 225 kilometers

44
00:01:35,759 –> 00:01:39,680
per hour that car is also rear-wheel

45
00:01:38,079 –> 00:01:41,280
drive so there’s one electric moto in

46
00:01:39,680 –> 00:01:44,000
the rear axle for the performance

47
00:01:41,280 –> 00:01:46,880
variant you get more power you get 506

48
00:01:44,000 –> 00:01:48,640
horsepower 660 newton meters of torque

49
00:01:46,880 –> 00:01:51,280
zero two hundred three point three

50
00:01:48,640 –> 00:01:52,960
seconds yes this car is faster than a

51
00:01:51,280 –> 00:01:54,640
kayado it’s about as fast as a

52
00:01:52,960 –> 00:01:56,960
lamborghini huracan you are almost as

53
00:01:54,640 –> 00:01:58,880
fast as all your supercars basically

54
00:01:56,960 –> 00:02:00,640
this car is also all-wheel drive because

55
00:01:58,880 –> 00:02:02,560
there’s an electric moto at the front

56
00:02:00,640 –> 00:02:04,320
axle and electric moto in the rear axle

57
00:02:02,560 –> 00:02:07,119
the third difference is probably

58
00:02:04,320 –> 00:02:09,280
cosmetic differences so for example the

59
00:02:07,119 –> 00:02:11,360
front fog lights for the performance

60
00:02:09,280 –> 00:02:12,879
variant is actually transparent in the

61
00:02:11,360 –> 00:02:14,800
standard variant it’s actually blacked

62
00:02:12,879 –> 00:02:17,040
out second difference is the rims and

63
00:02:14,800 –> 00:02:19,680
tires in the performance variant you get

64
00:02:17,040 –> 00:02:21,599
20 inch rims and bigger brake calipers

65
00:02:19,680 –> 00:02:23,520
and you get performance apparently p0

66
00:02:21,599 –> 00:02:25,680
tires as well in the standard range plus

67
00:02:23,520 –> 00:02:27,760
you get um smaller tires the last

68
00:02:25,680 –> 00:02:29,200
cosmetic difference is actually in the

69
00:02:27,760 –> 00:02:30,800
back the performance variant has a

70
00:02:29,200 –> 00:02:32,560
carbon fiber boot lid whereas the

71
00:02:30,800 –> 00:02:34,800
standard variant doesn’t have that okay

72
00:02:32,560 –> 00:02:36,560
so the standard range plus starts at

73
00:02:34,800 –> 00:02:39,200
about hundred and thirteen thousand

74
00:02:36,560 –> 00:02:41,360
dollars without coe so right now uh

75
00:02:39,200 –> 00:02:43,840
early november to zero to one coe for

76
00:02:41,360 –> 00:02:46,400
cat b is about eighty thousand so this

77
00:02:43,840 –> 00:02:48,959
car retails at about 193 thousand

78
00:02:46,400 –> 00:02:50,959
dollars with coe that’s the listed price

79
00:02:48,959 –> 00:02:52,239
for the performance variant it starts at

80
00:02:50,959 –> 00:02:55,440
about hundred and fifty five thousand

81
00:02:52,239 –> 00:02:57,599
dollars uh without coe so with the coe

82
00:02:55,440 –> 00:03:00,560
of eighty thousand dollars catbcoe the

83
00:02:57,599 –> 00:03:02,400
car will retail at about 235 thousand

84
00:03:00,560 –> 00:03:03,840
dollars road tax for the standard

85
00:03:02,400 –> 00:03:05,680
variant is about two thousand seven

86
00:03:03,840 –> 00:03:07,200
hundred twenty six dollars per year for

87
00:03:05,680 –> 00:03:08,480
the performance variant it’s about four

88
00:03:07,200 –> 00:03:10,239
thousand eight hundred and eighty four

89
00:03:08,480 –> 00:03:12,239
dollars per year this is because lta

90
00:03:10,239 –> 00:03:13,920
looks at the power output to calculate

91
00:03:12,239 –> 00:03:15,760
the road tax prices for electric

92
00:03:13,920 –> 00:03:18,159
vehicles so for the standard variant of

93
00:03:15,760 –> 00:03:21,440
the tesla model 3 it says here that the

94
00:03:18,159 –> 00:03:23,280
arf is about 33 000 after rebates so i

95
00:03:21,440 –> 00:03:25,280
hope these numbers are correct because

96
00:03:23,280 –> 00:03:27,120
if the numbers are correct and you do

97
00:03:25,280 –> 00:03:31,519
the calculation you get a depreciation

98
00:03:27,120 –> 00:03:34,000
of about 17 600 per year okay so 17 600

99
00:03:31,519 –> 00:03:35,920
depreciation i’m gonna put a link uh

100
00:03:34,000 –> 00:03:38,879
down below and you can compare that with

101
00:03:35,920 –> 00:03:40,720
the depreciation of new cars so you can

102
00:03:38,879 –> 00:03:42,159
see like for this kind of debris what

103
00:03:40,720 –> 00:03:44,159
kind of cars you can get to be honest

104
00:03:42,159 –> 00:03:46,080
the tesla is one of the more attractive

105
00:03:44,159 –> 00:03:47,920
models that you can get at that

106
00:03:46,080 –> 00:03:49,840
depreciation bracket so the pricing of

107
00:03:47,920 –> 00:03:51,519
the cars on this list vary a lot but i’m

108
00:03:49,840 –> 00:03:52,959
just looking at it from a depreciation

109
00:03:51,519 –> 00:03:55,920
perspective the depreciation for the

110
00:03:52,959 –> 00:03:58,840
performance variant is about 20 655

111
00:03:55,920 –> 00:04:05,129
dollars per year

112
00:03:58,840 –> 00:04:05,129
[Music]

113
00:04:08,560 –> 00:04:12,000
okay next workout maintenance can you

114
00:04:10,080 –> 00:04:13,760
expect with the tesla model 3 so the

115
00:04:12,000 –> 00:04:15,280
maintenance is very minimal basically

116
00:04:13,760 –> 00:04:16,880
when you bring your car in for service

117
00:04:15,280 –> 00:04:19,040
they will do things like your tyre

118
00:04:16,880 –> 00:04:21,199
alignment check your brake pads your

119
00:04:19,040 –> 00:04:23,120
tyre pressure windshield wiper fluid

120
00:04:21,199 –> 00:04:24,960
service your icon change your cabin air

121
00:04:23,120 –> 00:04:26,560
filter no transmission no engine to

122
00:04:24,960 –> 00:04:27,680
worry about speaking of maintenance i

123
00:04:26,560 –> 00:04:29,919
don’t think you’re going to be changing

124
00:04:27,680 –> 00:04:31,440
your brake pads that much because yeah

125
00:04:29,919 –> 00:04:33,280
when i drive this car i really don’t use

126
00:04:31,440 –> 00:04:35,280
the brakes as in i don’t tap on the

127
00:04:33,280 –> 00:04:37,440
brakes that hard at all because of the

128
00:04:35,280 –> 00:04:38,880
regenerative braking it helps to slow

129
00:04:37,440 –> 00:04:40,560
down the car so i’m pretty sure the

130
00:04:38,880 –> 00:04:42,560
brake pads on this car can last a very

131
00:04:40,560 –> 00:04:44,880
very long time so for the standard plus

132
00:04:42,560 –> 00:04:46,720
tesla model 3 for the basic vehicle

133
00:04:44,880 –> 00:04:48,800
warranty you get four years or 80 000

134
00:04:46,720 –> 00:04:50,560
kilometers whichever comes first and for

135
00:04:48,800 –> 00:04:53,759
the battery and drive unit you get eight

136
00:04:50,560 –> 00:04:55,680
years or 160 000 kilometers whichever

137
00:04:53,759 –> 00:04:57,840
comes first and for the performance

138
00:04:55,680 –> 00:04:59,919
variant of the tesla model 3 you get a

139
00:04:57,840 –> 00:05:01,919
basic vehicle warranty of 4 years or 80

140
00:04:59,919 –> 00:05:04,320
000 kilometers whichever comes first and

141
00:05:01,919 –> 00:05:07,360
battery and drive unit you get 8 years

142
00:05:04,320 –> 00:05:10,320
or 192 000 kilometers whichever comes

143
00:05:07,360 –> 00:05:11,680
first

144
00:05:10,320 –> 00:05:13,440
this is something a lot of you guys

145
00:05:11,680 –> 00:05:15,520
asked on facebook and instagram so the

146
00:05:13,440 –> 00:05:17,360
very first thing to note is that there

147
00:05:15,520 –> 00:05:19,680
are different types of charges so

148
00:05:17,360 –> 00:05:21,680
there’s the fast charger there’s a rapid

149
00:05:19,680 –> 00:05:23,600
charger and then there’s a supercharger

150
00:05:21,680 –> 00:05:25,520
i know it can get confusing so i’m gonna

151
00:05:23,600 –> 00:05:27,680
try to explain the best i can so the

152
00:05:25,520 –> 00:05:29,199
tesla superchargers are the fastest way

153
00:05:27,680 –> 00:05:31,919
to charge your car right now they

154
00:05:29,199 –> 00:05:34,080
provide up to 250 kilowatt hours of

155
00:05:31,919 –> 00:05:35,680
charging capacity so the numbers are

156
00:05:34,080 –> 00:05:37,280
very important and i’ll explain why in a

157
00:05:35,680 –> 00:05:38,880
minute the second type of charger is

158
00:05:37,280 –> 00:05:41,280
what they call the rapid charger so the

159
00:05:38,880 –> 00:05:43,360
rapid charger is 50 kilowatt so it’s

160
00:05:41,280 –> 00:05:45,280
about 20 of the capacity of the tesla

161
00:05:43,360 –> 00:05:46,880
supercharger these are what you find in

162
00:05:45,280 –> 00:05:48,639
your shell stations

163
00:05:46,880 –> 00:05:50,320
around singapore and i believe there are

164
00:05:48,639 –> 00:05:52,080
a few other companies that have this

165
00:05:50,320 –> 00:05:53,680
rapid charger as well so the third tile

166
00:05:52,080 –> 00:05:55,600
charger is what you call your fast

167
00:05:53,680 –> 00:05:57,440
charger so these are seven to 22

168
00:05:55,600 –> 00:05:59,840
kilowatt charges i believe these will be

169
00:05:57,440 –> 00:06:01,360
the ones that are installed in hdb car

170
00:05:59,840 –> 00:06:03,199
parks because these

171
00:06:01,360 –> 00:06:05,440
chargers are designed to charge your car

172
00:06:03,199 –> 00:06:08,240
overnight so they are not fast they take

173
00:06:05,440 –> 00:06:09,759
hours to charge up to 80 or 100 so yeah

174
00:06:08,240 –> 00:06:12,240
i believe these are the ones that will

175
00:06:09,759 –> 00:06:13,280
be placed in hdbs and condos down the

176
00:06:12,240 –> 00:06:15,520
line

177
00:06:13,280 –> 00:06:16,639
hey guys so we are at the supercharger

178
00:06:15,520 –> 00:06:18,800
station

179
00:06:16,639 –> 00:06:21,280
at orchard central and i’m gonna show

180
00:06:18,800 –> 00:06:22,560
you how to charge your tesla so first of

181
00:06:21,280 –> 00:06:24,080
all the charging port is on the left

182
00:06:22,560 –> 00:06:26,560
side of the car this is the charging

183
00:06:24,080 –> 00:06:27,600
port you just tap it once to open it up

184
00:06:26,560 –> 00:06:28,479
like that

185
00:06:27,600 –> 00:06:31,120
okay

186
00:06:28,479 –> 00:06:33,280
this is a tesla charger

187
00:06:31,120 –> 00:06:35,280
right that’s what it it looks like and

188
00:06:33,280 –> 00:06:37,680
then you just

189
00:06:35,280 –> 00:06:39,600
plug it in like that and

190
00:06:37,680 –> 00:06:41,280
yeah it’s charging

191
00:06:39,600 –> 00:06:42,800
you can see the light here so how do you

192
00:06:41,280 –> 00:06:45,039
know whether your car is charging or not

193
00:06:42,800 –> 00:06:47,440
you go to your tesla app

194
00:06:45,039 –> 00:06:50,720
and then it can show you

195
00:06:47,440 –> 00:06:50,720
let me just refresh this

196
00:06:51,280 –> 00:06:54,160
okay there

197
00:06:52,800 –> 00:06:57,039
it’s charging

198
00:06:54,160 –> 00:06:57,039
can you guys see that

199
00:06:59,360 –> 00:07:03,919
okay so to remove the charge all you

200
00:07:01,039 –> 00:07:06,160
have to do is press this button here

201
00:07:03,919 –> 00:07:08,319
hold it down and then you just

202
00:07:06,160 –> 00:07:10,880
plug it up like that all right and then

203
00:07:08,319 –> 00:07:14,199
you just put the supercharger

204
00:07:10,880 –> 00:07:14,199
back in

205
00:07:14,200 –> 00:07:18,479
[Music]

206
00:07:16,080 –> 00:07:21,280
so uh 30 minutes remaining it’s charging

207
00:07:18,479 –> 00:07:25,520
at 106 kilowatts right now battery is 40

208
00:07:21,280 –> 00:07:27,120
and the time is about 8 15 p.m

209
00:07:25,520 –> 00:07:29,280
okay guys so you can see over here it

210
00:07:27,120 –> 00:07:32,479
says super charging completed at 8 50 pm

211
00:07:29,280 –> 00:07:32,479
with battery at 90

212
00:07:32,640 –> 00:07:36,070
[Music]

213
00:07:36,800 –> 00:07:40,800
another thing i want to point out is

214
00:07:38,080 –> 00:07:43,120
that tesla told me that charging takes

215
00:07:40,800 –> 00:07:44,800
half an hour or less so if you leave

216
00:07:43,120 –> 00:07:46,160
your car here for about one hour or so

217
00:07:44,800 –> 00:07:48,479
you will get a notification on your

218
00:07:46,160 –> 00:07:51,919
phone saying you are leaving your car

219
00:07:48,479 –> 00:07:51,919
idle and they may charge you for it

220
00:07:51,950 –> 00:07:55,190
[Music]

221
00:07:55,520 –> 00:07:59,120
so the first time i tried the

222
00:07:56,800 –> 00:08:01,360
supercharger at orchard central there

223
00:07:59,120 –> 00:08:03,680
were two cars charging at the same time

224
00:08:01,360 –> 00:08:05,520
as me so i was in the third and last lot

225
00:08:03,680 –> 00:08:08,240
and it took about 35 minutes to get from

226
00:08:05,520 –> 00:08:10,240
40 to 90 and this was with the car

227
00:08:08,240 –> 00:08:11,759
turned off i was outside the car and at

228
00:08:10,240 –> 00:08:15,039
that point the car was charging at about

229
00:08:11,759 –> 00:08:17,599
147 kilowatts instead of the full 250

230
00:08:15,039 –> 00:08:17,599
kilowatts

231
00:08:17,600 –> 00:08:20,839
[Music]

232
00:08:21,039 –> 00:08:25,120
and yesterday i was at the supercharger

233
00:08:23,199 –> 00:08:27,440
at millennia walk i was the only one

234
00:08:25,120 –> 00:08:29,120
over there so the charging lots were all

235
00:08:27,440 –> 00:08:32,320
empty except for me and it took me about

236
00:08:29,120 –> 00:08:34,560
29 minutes to get from 30 to 80

237
00:08:32,320 –> 00:08:36,399
and this was with me in the car i was

238
00:08:34,560 –> 00:08:38,719
listening to music and i turned on the

239
00:08:36,399 –> 00:08:41,440
icon so um i noticed that the car was

240
00:08:38,719 –> 00:08:44,240
also charging at about 140 plus

241
00:08:41,440 –> 00:08:46,160
kilowatts and then uh as the percentage

242
00:08:44,240 –> 00:08:48,480
increase i when i got to about 60 plus

243
00:08:46,160 –> 00:08:50,560
percent of battery charge the wattage

244
00:08:48,480 –> 00:08:52,640
actually dropped to about 70 kilowatts

245
00:08:50,560 –> 00:08:54,160
if there are any tesla model 3 owners

246
00:08:52,640 –> 00:08:55,839
and you know you are more experienced in

247
00:08:54,160 –> 00:08:58,080
charging your car please feel free to

248
00:08:55,839 –> 00:08:59,680
comment down below on the charging times

249
00:08:58,080 –> 00:09:01,279
that we can expect so uh one more thing

250
00:08:59,680 –> 00:09:03,360
i want to add on when charging your car

251
00:09:01,279 –> 00:09:05,279
is that because this car has zero

252
00:09:03,360 –> 00:09:07,440
emissions and singapore has a law

253
00:09:05,279 –> 00:09:09,680
against um you know letting your car run

254
00:09:07,440 –> 00:09:11,440
on idle i’m not sure how that will play

255
00:09:09,680 –> 00:09:13,200
out for this car i’m pretty sure you can

256
00:09:11,440 –> 00:09:15,440
idle this car because it’s running off

257
00:09:13,200 –> 00:09:17,200
the battery there’s again zero emissions

258
00:09:15,440 –> 00:09:18,959
and um the reason why i say that is

259
00:09:17,200 –> 00:09:20,640
because when i was charging the car i

260
00:09:18,959 –> 00:09:22,320
noticed that there were people in their

261
00:09:20,640 –> 00:09:23,760
teslas as well they were in their car

262
00:09:22,320 –> 00:09:25,440
just you know using their phone watching

263
00:09:23,760 –> 00:09:27,360
netflix watching youtube whatever it is

264
00:09:25,440 –> 00:09:29,839
so i believe this kind of behavior will

265
00:09:27,360 –> 00:09:31,519
actually be very normal in the years to

266
00:09:29,839 –> 00:09:33,200
come where people

267
00:09:31,519 –> 00:09:36,320
charge their cars and you know they are

268
00:09:33,200 –> 00:09:38,480
just inside relaxing

269
00:09:36,320 –> 00:09:40,480
so right now tesla superchargers in

270
00:09:38,480 –> 00:09:41,920
singapore are free to use so you can

271
00:09:40,480 –> 00:09:43,519
actually yeah you charge your car for

272
00:09:41,920 –> 00:09:45,200
free i just did it yesterday the only

273
00:09:43,519 –> 00:09:46,800
thing i paid for was parking at orchard

274
00:09:45,200 –> 00:09:48,560
central i think i paid about five

275
00:09:46,800 –> 00:09:50,080
dollars if you think about it five

276
00:09:48,560 –> 00:09:51,279
dollars to get a full charge and then

277
00:09:50,080 –> 00:09:54,640
you can drive for like 400 plus

278
00:09:51,279 –> 00:09:56,080
kilometers yeah that’s a win

279
00:09:54,640 –> 00:09:58,320
so over here it says that the price for

280
00:09:56,080 –> 00:09:59,839
one kilowatt is about 55 cents so some

281
00:09:58,320 –> 00:10:01,839
people say the model 3’s battery

282
00:09:59,839 –> 00:10:03,600
capacity is 75 kilowatts some people say

283
00:10:01,839 –> 00:10:05,680
it’s 82 i’m just going to take 80

284
00:10:03,600 –> 00:10:08,560
kilowatts to be safe and if you multiply

285
00:10:05,680 –> 00:10:11,360
80 by 55 cents per kilowatt you get

286
00:10:08,560 –> 00:10:13,040
about 44 dollars for a full tank a full

287
00:10:11,360 –> 00:10:16,640
tank meaning like you know charge from

288
00:10:13,040 –> 00:10:18,399
zero to 100 at a shell station

289
00:10:16,640 –> 00:10:19,839
okay so on your tesla infotainment all

290
00:10:18,399 –> 00:10:21,360
you have to do is press this button over

291
00:10:19,839 –> 00:10:23,440
here this will show you where all the

292
00:10:21,360 –> 00:10:25,920
charging points are three um you know

293
00:10:23,440 –> 00:10:27,360
lightning bolts here uh stands for the

294
00:10:25,920 –> 00:10:29,040
supercharger so there are two

295
00:10:27,360 –> 00:10:31,360
superchargers available in singapore

296
00:10:29,040 –> 00:10:33,040
right now so if you tap on the red icon

297
00:10:31,360 –> 00:10:35,279
you can actually see that there are

298
00:10:33,040 –> 00:10:36,880
three stalls available and there’s a

299
00:10:35,279 –> 00:10:38,720
medium wait time meaning that you

300
00:10:36,880 –> 00:10:40,800
probably have to wait a bit before you

301
00:10:38,720 –> 00:10:42,240
can actually charge your car and over

302
00:10:40,800 –> 00:10:44,480
here it shows there are two stalls

303
00:10:42,240 –> 00:10:46,560
available right now out of three i’m

304
00:10:44,480 –> 00:10:48,560
very sure as more and more people get a

305
00:10:46,560 –> 00:10:50,160
tesla they will add more supercharger

306
00:10:48,560 –> 00:10:51,839
locations so second one is actually what

307
00:10:50,160 –> 00:10:54,480
you call your rapid charging so you can

308
00:10:51,839 –> 00:10:56,880
see rapid charging is available in a lot

309
00:10:54,480 –> 00:10:58,800
of the shell stations in singapore just

310
00:10:56,880 –> 00:11:00,560
to add on there’s also an app called

311
00:10:58,800 –> 00:11:02,560
block share that you can download and

312
00:11:00,560 –> 00:11:04,880
you can look at all the charging

313
00:11:02,560 –> 00:11:06,720
stations available in singapore again

314
00:11:04,880 –> 00:11:10,079
all the links to all these resources

315
00:11:06,720 –> 00:11:11,680
will be in the description below

316
00:11:10,079 –> 00:11:13,519
so what if you want to go on road trips

317
00:11:11,680 –> 00:11:15,360
in malaysia is it possible for you to

318
00:11:13,519 –> 00:11:16,800
charge your car over there yes it is

319
00:11:15,360 –> 00:11:18,800
there are two things i want to touch on

320
00:11:16,800 –> 00:11:20,560
over here number one is that recently in

321
00:11:18,800 –> 00:11:22,160
malaysia’s budget to zero to two which

322
00:11:20,560 –> 00:11:23,519
was announced like probably like a week

323
00:11:22,160 –> 00:11:25,440
ago something like that the government

324
00:11:23,519 –> 00:11:27,680
decided to give full exemption of their

325
00:11:25,440 –> 00:11:29,279
import duty excise duty and sales tax

326
00:11:27,680 –> 00:11:30,959
for electric vehicles so what does that

327
00:11:29,279 –> 00:11:32,720
mean for singapore it means that we can

328
00:11:30,959 –> 00:11:34,560
expect an increase in ev adoption in

329
00:11:32,720 –> 00:11:36,399
malaysia and that will in turn mean more

330
00:11:34,560 –> 00:11:38,800
charging stations because now it’s more

331
00:11:36,399 –> 00:11:41,120
feasible for companies to invest in the

332
00:11:38,800 –> 00:11:42,800
ev charging infrastructure so an example

333
00:11:41,120 –> 00:11:43,839
of that is a shell in porsche asia

334
00:11:42,800 –> 00:11:45,600
pacific announced that they are

335
00:11:43,839 –> 00:11:48,160
launching a network of high capacity

336
00:11:45,600 –> 00:11:50,320
charges about 180 kilowatts which is you

337
00:11:48,160 –> 00:11:52,000
know lesser capacity than the tesla

338
00:11:50,320 –> 00:11:53,200
superchargers but still quite high and

339
00:11:52,000 –> 00:11:55,600
they are launching it along the

340
00:11:53,200 –> 00:11:57,120
north-south highway so it says here that

341
00:11:55,600 –> 00:11:59,279
you can even book your charging base

342
00:11:57,120 –> 00:12:01,600
slot in advance and there are three

343
00:11:59,279 –> 00:12:03,920
stations northbound and three stations

344
00:12:01,600 –> 00:12:06,000
southbound so the two northbound and

345
00:12:03,920 –> 00:12:07,600
southbound stations in joho it says here

346
00:12:06,000 –> 00:12:10,000
that they are expecting it to be

347
00:12:07,600 –> 00:12:11,920
completed by nf2021 now because the

348
00:12:10,000 –> 00:12:14,399
range for the tesla model 3 standard is

349
00:12:11,920 –> 00:12:17,040
about 448 kilometers you can drive up to

350
00:12:14,399 –> 00:12:19,200
kl in theory so there’s an app called a

351
00:12:17,040 –> 00:12:22,550
job charge for you to find the nearest

352
00:12:19,200 –> 00:12:24,079
available charging points

353
00:12:22,550 –> 00:12:26,160
