What's inside a Tesla Engine?

  • Published: 08 October 2019
  • We took apart a REAL Tesla Model S Motor! Thanks to our sponsor UBTECH for making this possible! Get the JIMU Robot: MeeBot 2.0 Kit at the Apple store, apple.com, or learn more at https://apple.co/2OHnx9N

    This is the same rear motor that is in the model S and X. Tesla learned from the Original Roadster, made this motor, then came out with the new model 3 and Y motor. Even from 2012 the inside of this is super advanced technology.

    That is amazing.... especially the computer triad area. It is a sturdy design surviving those punishing/ jarring roads with pot holes and bumps .... then looking at the the home computer/lap top mother boards and knowing they are very sensitive to breaking when dropped.

    The home computer/lap top companies need to come up the same durability for their motherboards as did Tesla.

      These are the kind of people that made tesla overrated. Those were just regular old heavy duty PCB's. Nothing out of the ordinary. They are designed to be able to take bending and all sort of stuff without braking. Unless you deliberately start scraching components off, it will survive shocks as well. Nothing special. Its just a pcb.... I swear at the start I was excited for tesla, but after the amount of quality control issues and the blind apple like fans like you i dont like them anymore...

              "..you know...the lack of humility being displayed here before nature (electrical engineers) staggers me. Things are a lot worse. Don't you see the danger, inherent in what you are doing here (in the chop shop) ...?
              Your scientists (mechanics) were so preoccupied with whether they could (open a Tesla Motor), they didn't stop to think if they should... Genetic (electric car) power is the most awesome force the planet's (the turnpike) ever seen, but you wield it like a kid that's found his dad's gun (1953 flat head Ford motor)." Jurassic Park 1993

                            A real mechanic would have dismantled that motor without breaking anything. This guy is just a moronic butcher!

                                          Warranty void if opened, because there's nothing in there a home mechanic can fix. Must be nice to be rich enough to see cars as a "throwaway" item. Those of us who have to work for a living need transportation, too.

                                                  I just don't understand how people can make out an AC induction motor to be something other than what it is. You're acting like you're about to take something apart that's never been taken apart before. Same old technology. I guess the wrapper has you all excited.

                                                    Dude literally said you never have to change the oil. Well people with gasoline engines don't have to charge their batteries. I can change my oil in the time it takes for a supercharger to charge a tesla. Then goes on to say you don't have to swap out transmissions. Newsflash a well-maintained gasoline car doesn't have to either. nobody is intrigued with how electric cars work they've been out for over a hundred years. And I assume when the guy says gas he means gasoline. Carbon dioxide is also a gas. And don't get me wrong electric cars are neat but they are not more reliable. gasoline cars are an internal combustion engines the Tesla is an external combustion engine because it still depends on electricity to be generated external from itself. Don't get me wronglike I said earlier they're cool cars but there's absolutely nothing revolutionary about them.
