Everything is possible and in an unlucky moment one can run out with an EV of battery, in the midst of a wilderness. What does the user of a Tesla Model 3 do in this case?
David Andreyev, according to YouTube “Cyber Hooligan”, drove a Model 3 until the battery rate reached 1% and the range level to 3 miles (4.8 km).
Then he yelled at his friends, with an old Toyota Camry, to pull him in order to charge the array through energy recovery. The route is mountainous and fortunately with zero traffic, so no problems are created.
Energy recovery — and the Camry — does its job, giving 14 miles (22.5 km) autonomy to 2.2 miles (3.5 km) of towing. Up to 4 miles (6.4 km) the range has risen to 27 miles (43.5 km), while to 6.2 miles (10 km) “flatbed” amounts to 40 miles (64.4 km).
Small detail: even with 1%, the car remains functional and, above all, activated. Consequently, the driver can involve the “Drive” function and adjust the power recovery function so that he can eventually charge through it. On the contrary, if the battery was completely drained or damaged, the crane would be a one-way choice.
