GCC: Teardown specialists Munro & Assoc. hosting engineering comparison of Model 3, i3, Bolt and I-PACE

Munro & Associates . . . is hosting an Electric Vehicle Technical Briefing on 21 June in Auburn Hills, Mich. During the event, the Munro team will present an engineering comparison of four leading EVs: the Tesla Model 3; the BMW i3, the Chevy Bolt; and the Jaguar I-PACE.

The main focus will be on the EV “Big 3”: motors, batteries and electronics. However, there will be a new technology review with insight into the engineering and designs of some of the other innovative vehicles on the road today. The Tesla 3 will be compared to the BMW i3 and the Chevy Bolt.

The parts of all three of the vehicles will be laid out on tables and Munro “A Frames” with Munro engineers to provide a detailed description of the key take-ways from each part of the car and answer questions. There will also be a hoist review of the Jaguar I PACE, as a precursor to discussions on the I PACE electric motor.

Can we guess Munro's "briefing" outcome?
#1 Leaf SL MY 9/13: 74K miles, 48 Ahrs, 5.2 miles/kWh (average), Hx=70, SOH=78, L2 - 100% > 1000, temp < 95F (35C), min discharge (DOD) > 20 Ahrs
#2 Leaf SL MY 12/18: 115 Ahrs, 5.5 miles/kWh (average), Hx=98, SOH=99, DOD > 25%, temp < 105F
