This Tesla Model 3 Badged as a 'Civic Si' Actually Kind of Works




That's some really good camouflage. I think the Si is the cutest bit.

Doesn't matter as long as it has a 4" high bar for a dashboard, like my original Civic.




I could live with that

Other day I found some manufacturers of hybrid cars are being f... trickers. They are creating terms (not honest) like self charge car. But indeed it's just a hybrid car burning oil fuel to move a generator to charge the battery to be used with the electric motor.

What will be the next self "charge car" ?
A car with a robotic arm that take automatically take the fuel hose and put on the fuel tank socket ???

It is just a warning not to exit them with the engine running because you'd never know where or what they'll charge into all by themselves..
