Their suggestion is to carry a separate external 12v power pack to open the back doors in case of accident lol, and dude posted it as a gotcha to the guy saying they won't open without power

elong must is just trying to save lives with his computer cars. he needs to save 60Ę per car to achieve this, so who cares if he singes a few babies that should be have carried spare 12V batteries?

your car is smouldering and licks of flame are beginning to shoot out from the undercarriage, your children are in the back seat. quickly take your 12v battery pack, remove the cover from the bumper, connect the battery to the auxiliary power terminal, and hope that enough of the car comes online to allow you to use the rear door handles.

yeah but if you fail to solve the puzzles in an escape room they still let you leave, so it's somewhat deceptive advertising

there's a "handle" it's just a stupid electronic piece of poo poo that has to be powered to pop out and be accessible, otherwise it's completely flush with the body. also it's not a mechanical handle so even if it were out it wouldn't do anything without power

donít forget that youíll need to remove the car seat to fold down the rear seats

carrying one of those auto glass hammers/strap cutters is probably a better option

i work next to a company that manufactures electric car chargers, and they have ďfree samplesĒ in their parking lot. so itís convenient for commuting in an electric car and loling about electric car design

i see an i3 with the license plate ďKIC GASĒ every day and it just makes my morning
