  1. Worlds First EV friendly trailer

    I agree, but the more retro looking airstreams rather than the “basecamp” IMO. There was someone showing a fictional “x-stream” around here which looked like an airstream but had batteries and motors and would be perfect (had the battery connection to the towing Tesla existed).
  2. Worlds First EV friendly trailer

    Very cool. I can see how you separately could end up with the same teardrop shape based on flat surfaces, and also have led rear lights in a bar shape, but I just find it really hard to believe it isn’t also steel coloured and has the same edge on the side because of the CT. Especially that...
  3. My Cybertruck pop-up roof tent design

    That was smart. It depends on your climate but I’m liking the hard, insulated walls all over, yet still pop-up. Would love for it to follow the lines of the CT though. That takes some serious origami skills 😊
  4. Back-seat driver: How Honda stole the lead in autonomous cars

    What a lovely and sad country song 😊
  5. Volvo’s second electric vehicle will be the slimmed down C40 Recharge

    Quick fix for the XC40 Recharge’s horrible aerodynamics? Kinda like the Porsche Cayenne Coupe (e-hybrid). But in that case I would expect this to get longer range or less battery. SUV Coupes (BMW, Audi, MB, Lambo, etc) have been fashionable lately but they usually keep the height clearance...
  6. Cybertruck reservation order number -- how to tell your place in line

    Acktschually.. it’s 2023 and later for most people at this rate. </end neckbeard> Including me for being geographically retarded. Seriously though, I really don’t expect Elon’s optimistic time frame of CTs to customers in December 2021 to come to fruition at all. It will maybe be shown on the...
  7. What I will be getting to mount to my CT

    I can attest to this. I have a 2020 Specialized Levo Comp and a 2021 Rocky Mountain Instinct BC edition Carbon electric mountain bikes, and after almost hitting many deer and two moose, I tend to cough and hum a lot while riding at speed. The helmet and body armor won’t withstand a stomping...
  8. How Europe Became the World's Biggest Electric-Car Market -- and Why It Might Not Last

    I would love to see that change, not least since the best EV development is already done in the USA.
  9. How many are buying CT that DONT actually NEED a truck?

    Pickups aren’t that common here. Vans and trailers are used by craftsmen instead. So I wouldn’t think of buying a truck either. More likely a new SUV. But the CT is a comfortable AWD 6-seater with a lockable and weatherproof big locker in the back. And is dead cool and stainless steel. I...
  10. Tesla’s Full Self-Driving subscription is coming in Q2 2021

    Indeed. If Porsche had FSD a’la carte they would list and have separate prices for “Summon, forwards” and “Summon, backwards”, etc and not list them in the same page to add confusion 😀
  11. Back-seat driver: How Honda stole the lead in autonomous cars

    Level 4 is the famous Rise of the Machines obviously. «The driver *may* have the option to control the vehicle...» 😀
  12. How Europe Became the World's Biggest Electric-Car Market -- and Why It Might Not Last

    The only point of reference I know is Norway. Here the incentive for EV is just not applying any tax on EVs, while ICE cars have been heavily taxed (35-50%) for decades. So easily implemented with a huge effect. In addition tolls, city slow-charging and parking have been free, and EVs can drive...
  13. How Europe Became the World's Biggest Electric-Car Market -- and Why It Might Not Last

    Of course it won’t last, and let’s be glad when it doesn’t. Subsidies are tax money after all. Incentives are great to promote change (I’ve taken a huge share) but will fall when markets mature. Which hopefully and probably means we’re at a point where it just makes more economical sense to go...
  14. The technical challenges of bidirectional chargers

    True. CCS’ roadmap shows it to be fully V2X (V2G and V2H) compliant in 2025 because of the amount of international standards to agree upon first. https://thedriven.io/2020/07/21/the-road-to-bidirectional-ccs-electric-car-charging/ But, yes, if they focused solely on the DC part of the equation...
  15. The technical challenges of bidirectional chargers

    Nissan has delivered Leaf EVs with V2G (or V2H) since at least 2016, but as well as the feature only being available in Japan and certain euro markets, I don’t know if it’s ever surpassed pilot projects with grid owners...
  16. Tesla’s Full Self-Driving subscription is coming in Q2 2021

    Isn’t some of the idea that you can subscribe to it for a month when you’re going on a trip and ditch it again? I can see them charge a bit extra for the benefit of turning it off and on at whim. Maybe just the holidays of a year. Others who pay up front have also paid for it when they’re just...
  17. First principles pondering

    I’m not necessarily disagreeing with you but the main fuel storage with regard to EVs is in the car itself, and what the media calls “a Tesla fire” is supposedly very hard to put out. That’s a pretty media-friendly fire as well. So much so that here there’s concerns around underground/ground...
  18. Maybe Single motor is all you need?

    I’m at a place between dual and tri. AWD is a given up over here. And I’m leaning towards tri although 95% of driving is less than 100km (these were the approx statistics released here by the EV foundation). But for the city and commutes (one of us) we have the Model 3 (or another small city...
  19. Cybertruck’s Yoke-Style Steering Wheel Revealed by Way of Model S and X Updated Interiors?!

    Thanks for keeping an eye out. Is the instrument cluster bigger than it used to be as well? In the second image it looks very wide compared to the new bigger 17" center screen. Could be perspective. I have a feeling it will feel very alien even just *holding* this yoke instead of a standard...
  20. First principles pondering

    The hydrogen refueling stations in Oslo, Norway, were «green» and based on sea water and solar, but were getting fewer after declining demand, until one exploded in 2019 and has been closed since. I think there’s just one place left now but that’s of course incredibly impractical for the few...
