The famous YouTube channel, What’s Inside, opened up a Tesla engine and see what’s inside it! What’s Inside choose to take a thorough look into the Tesla motor to show its viewers about what is going on under the hood of this famous car.
In the video, one of the presenters says just before the engine is taken apart, ‘there’s not a lot of stuff on the internet about this.’ This gave What’s Inside more of a reason to break it apart and check it out what’s inside it. The Tesla that is being taken apart is the 2012 Tesla Model S, and its engine has a blue coolant, transmission fluid, a large computer processor, PCB boards, and huge gears.
A lot of commenters were fast and correct to point out that the video’s title ‘What’s Inside a Tesla Engine’ is actually wrong because of the fact that Tesla vehicles do not feature an internal combustion engine. Instead of an engine, Tesla vehicles, along with other completely electric vehicles, come with a motor that is powered using the battery pack housed within the car.
Internal combustion gasoline engines are more likely to wear and tear. But, the electric motor comes with lesser moving parts and is much more superior in terms of technology that it features. What you will watch in this video is more or less the same that is highlighted in a number of everyday objects such as smartphones, but in a simpler form. The video gives the audience an intriguing insight into the inner workings of electrical motors.
This model featured in the video is a 2012 Tesla model. However, its motor has been upgraded ever since then. Tesla’s electric motor technology has become so advanced that Daimler’s head of trucks has said that Tesla’s Semi has managed to pass them by with its amazing technology. He also added that Elon Musk’s company is defying the law of physics.
