Slow enyaq coupe
« on: February 02, 2022, 06:14:27 am »
“The RS trim can deliver 220kW and up to 460Nm of torque which allows it to go from 0-100kmh in 6.5 seconds.”

I quite like Skoda products but isn’t this a bit dumb? A base Tesla model 3 is faster.

Who uses the max 0-60 time in everday driving, especially in a high riding SUV intended to cart the kids around.
Tesla base their whole ethos around the 0-60 time because with an electric motor it is easy, but then they have nothing else to offer that my refrigerator does not.

Nice fridge, so it can drive itself one day?  :laugh:

Pricing will be interesting, specially with that battery size. Just under the $80k cutoff for base models maybe, but the RS with all its kit will likely be over the $80k.

I think the self driving is well away......just reported today, Tesla forced to recall a whole lot more cars with faulty 'self driving' allowing them to ignore stop signs....mind you manual drivers are a bit inclined to do the same!!!

No body does but it wears an 'RS' badge.

All those Suzuki Swifts and Honda Jazz that wear the RS badges should be crushed too  >:D

Dumb thing is to judge a car by it's acceration.

Look at the overall package, then consider some of the other cars that have worn the "RS" badge - used correctly, it's just an indication it's a more 'sporty' version. Sometimes a little more, sometimes a lot more.
These are my thoughts and opinions - sometimes I'm wrong, but not often ;-)
