Does Tesla have an engine and transmission?
No, Teslas do not have a traditional transmission. Teslas utilize electric motors with only about 17 moving parts, compared to a conventional internal combustion engine, which has around 200.
Do Teslas have transmission fluid?
How do I know if I need to change the transmission fluid on my Tesla? Similar to the function that oil has in your engine, transmission fluid lubricates the moving parts in the transmission.
Why doesn’t Tesla use a transmission?
Electric cars don’t require multi-speed transmissions because of the so-called “engine” in an electric car, an electric motor. While internal combustion engines require multiple gears with different ratios for power output, electric motors produce a consistent amount of torque at any given RPM within a specific range.
