According to the picture, our newsroom of the Magazin.cz received, the solution is simple, relatively inexpensive, and, just as it has always been with the innovative Tesla, it moves the human society again a little further.
Captured “Tesla-T”, or “Tesla Trolley”, according to the informations from social networks, is actually not a new car. It’s more of an “option” - for an extra charge, which should gradually be available to each car TESLA. As is being evidenced on the snapshot of redeveloped TESlA -X, this “extra charge” actually makes a small trolleybus from each TESLA car. Therefore is also unofficially called TESLA-T, which means TESLA - Trolley.
The thing is brilliantly simple. TESLA car is scrolling slowly in the traffic among the other cars in urban areas where there is trolleybus wiring. This is the very point where the car TESLA (along with other conventional cars equipped with START-STOP system) has the meaning till now. The electric vehicle does consume almost no electricity during the waiting in the traffic (just like an other conventional car equiped with START-STOP function), while other engines of common cars are running right now uselessly, consuming fuel and producing exhaust fumes.
And now it comes! TESLA automatically detects the trolley above, eject out its “antennas” and using Musk brilliant guidence system (obviously borrowed from the space SPACE-X program) the extendable antennas in approx 10 seconds automatically connect to the trolley.
This is the moment, when the heart of TESLA-T driver, as well as the other passers-by and onlookers rejoice -, as the TESLA begins to recharge its battery while driving! This is unprecedented. The electricity flowing into the TESLA - T car completely turnes the situaion around: an angry driver scrolling slowly in traffic becomes pleased driver, because he nows, that today he is not going to spend his time by long and hard recharge its car-battery. Musk’s life-giving energy is spreading on further: satisfied TESLA-T driver gives priority to pedestrians on the crossing and yet gives them a smile. The pedestrian notices it, accept that smile and spreads it on all around. At least, this is how the one of subscribers on social network describes his experience.
Brilliant idea, however, has its own problems also. The automatic system of TESLA car turns the car into the small trolleybus during the period of “function trolley” and adapts to it for example the speed of driving, though it doesn’t seem to have been solved yet. The TESLA-T driver, for example, quickly turns into the street where there are no trolleys. Although the TESLA-T has quick-release system, it takes to antennas pull back into to car a while, and in this time, they can unpleasantly “swing” in a fast-paced ride in a curve - bumping into the something standing beside. The system also brings legislative and organizational problems: the amount of electricity taken from the trolleys is measured only by TESLA itself, the trolleybus company owner can not measure it. The electricity invoice for the company TESLA from the owner of the trolleybus wiring, which the company would further issues to the connected TESLA-T, couldn’t be seriously issued and de facto would be issued to TESLA company by itself. The councilors who represent transport companies doesn’t like it: what if TESLA cheats with the electricity report?
Note: Magazin.cz originally wanted to publish this text on 1st of April. However, due to the fact that time period aligned to actual Tesla movements, which to this date remains, is too large, we decided to publish it now.
