  1. First Tesla has to launch their cars in India, don’t know when will that happen ! Tesla or VW won’t be able to sell so many cars as people will have their own doubts with regard to charging stations etc as EVs aren’t hybrids. Quality car maker’s batteries would be reliable. Over and above cost of the car would be crucial for their success.
  2. Yesterday in Homedepot(Martinez), California, where I was buying a cordless impact wrench and cordless hammer drill, happen to meet a Tesla sale executive and he was briefing me on Tesla model S. He told me that the battery pack for the car costs 6000${4 lakhs} but comes with a conditional warranty of 25years. Actually it’s fair deal.
  3. @Bhuvan Anejawelcome back after a gap of one year. The Amsoil May not be serious of 40,000km guarantee on its oil. No matter what one does the oil needs to be renewed after a year as it becomes breeding ground for microbes. The additives gets neutralised after 10,000km. 40,000km is a unrealistic figure
  4. @librankurThere was a great and realistic article in autocar magazine by its sub editor Mr Shapur Kotwal stating that 70% of the electricity, in India, is generated by burning coal. So EV vehicles aren’t ecofriendly. Though you aren’t polluting cities but surely pollution will increase in the outskirts. Now m! is there a plan to recycle Li-ion batteries which would require replacement every three years. Charging stations every 50kms. Just going with the EU would be stupidity. Hybrid vehicles is the immediate answer.
  5. Hi Everybody

    @Sahaya Auto Serviceswelcome! aboard this forum. Where are you based? What’s your expertise?
  6. @mayanktanwar don’t get me wrong. Battery voltage is 12V, true. Cranking power, pertaining to car, would be nos. of starts it can give to a car in a single charge
  7. @mayanktanwar I wanted to know CCA but I missed the post by @Herry Das as he wrote my name incorrectly. 65AH battery means the battery capable of supplying 65A line current to load continuously for 1Hour

    Carry out the wheel balancing, this will show if the tyre is true or the bearings are bad causing tyre to wear on one side
  10. Normal or Abnormal behaviour of a CRDi Engine?

    @OMKAR BHALERAO I can talk about myself. What you are asking is related to research and I am now into maintenance of Diesel engines, so I have no idea but there are guys from this forum who are veterans. I think they can reply to your query.
  11. Current Car Discounts

    That’s one hell of a post on car discounts. Great initiative @librankur
  12. Is Shell Petrol better than others?

    @Murugan95 you are absolutely right, Shell and Reliance fuel is better. The government operated hp, bp etc petrol pumps too, are better.
  13. Why not Three Wheeler Scooter ???

    @Tanhyd I have Amaze and I don’t own a bike. For all my petty chores I drive my car. 4 wheeler is safe. Any distance more than 200m I drive my car, parking, I manage to get.
  14. Tata Motors showcased electric cars at Auto Expo 2018

    @Alisha Hessle EV Tiago Looks great. Now the quality of Li ion batteries TATA has used in this car matters a lot for car enthusiast like us.
