    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    Tinker71: You might want to edit the message to avoid including your own reply inside of my quote, to instead make your post appear like this: Remember folks we CT owners will always have the option of powering a few devices with extension cords during an emergency and closely monitoring our...

    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    Good information and good points. Power at a given time doesn't always translate well, because it's use is not constant for the most part. With variations and intermittent usage the overall consumption (energy) can easily be less. However, I still maintain that my initial impression that...

    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    Exactly! Seems whenever they realize they're behind on an innovation, their marketing department knee jerks to generate a distraction in order to hang on to customers while attempting to slow competitors' sales. What they're really saying is, "...uh uh we don't have anything like that right...

    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    I admire your trying to support Crissa or anyone else's view. But she hasn't yet backed it up (yet), and neither have you. But she is welcome to, as is anyone else on this forum as well. I too have liked Crissa's posts, but I happen to disagree with her on the specific actuations concerning...

    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    Well, if you're so convinced you are actuating the this better, then why aren't you working closely with Elon and have convinced him the practical viability of V2G already?? When Tesla evaluates wide scale implementations such as V2G, they have to consider widespread average use cases (not...

    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    Think 6.6 kW is not realistic? Generac's smallest Home Backup Generator solution starts at a 7.5 kW rating, and their capacity ranges go upwards to around 22 kW from there. That should tell you something... But as I mentioned in the beginning of the previous post, it largely depends on where...

    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    Three days powered by a Model 3? ... Possibly if you live in a small house in a place like California, where there is ideal climate more of the time and average monthly electricity usage per household is lowest in the country (even though California residents still pay the highest electricity...

    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    Agreed. Service center dependency has been burned and 'brain-washed' into the consumer mindset, because that's what the dealership associations have wanted all along. However, Tesla is illuminating the reality that vehicles can be made to require much less or almost no service comparatively...

    Automated car wash w/ those horrendous brushes + waxing

    Just use a touchless automated car wash if you're unable to do a detailed hand wash.

    CT - All the Important Sounds

    Totally agree. I also would add attention body panel alignment accuracy. With the CT design, sharp convergence points like the front corners of the fenders/hood/fascia, and also the rear upper corners of the tailgate/bed will tend to show any misalignment very easily. Alignment of door pillar...

    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    Again, you're talking about an emergency, (which I stated would be viable at the end of my first post of the thread), and not everyday use. Again, if you're truly concerned about that (keeping seafood and meds at temperature), you would've already had other power backup redundancy measures in...

    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    So, I wouldn't be so 'overly excited' about the F150 Lightening V2G possibilities. Yes, they will gladly tout it as a selling point, because think about it, isn't that what ICE vehicle manufacturers do? They will sell you something they 'think' you will 'want' (but not necessarily what you...

    Why we here need to pretend to be excited about the Ford F-150 Lightning

    While V2G seems great, IMO it's a trivial direction of power transfer with additional underlying detractors. If during a power outage you had V2G and powered your home with it, you're then depleting your vehicle battery stranding yourself at or near home, and you may not not know how long the...

    Huawei - "Anything Tesla Can Do, We Can Do"

    Having a sheer industrial base at the ready to copy and scale someone else's innovation, is not a real accomplishment. Tesla is willing to take risks of innovation, build new manufacturing systems, and do all the hard work to open markets for their original product. Copying others' ideas to...

    Dashboard colour update in Gig Texas photos

    I really had no problem with the 'marble' dash in the beginning, upon first noticing it at the Reveal Event. It kind of reminded me of the styling inside of Stargate series ships like the Al'kesh and Ha'tak motherships, mainly because they included 'organic' elements throughout their interior...

    📸 Cybertruck Spotted at Giga Texas Plant! + Interior Look with Yoke Steering Wheel and Performance Pedals!

    Those who took test rides at the Reveal Event mentioned they saw T-Slots: Could be that there are optional hard rubber plastic inserts that could be placed in T-Slots when they're not frequently in use - to keep crud, rocks, and dirt from getting into them. Maybe someone who was at the...

    Backview screen included in the infotainment screen

    Totally Agree. Even in ICE cars for decades now, the Rear View Mirror was placed in the upper center of a windshield for a very good reason - to allow quick visual attention to the rear, and then rapid refocusing on the road and surroundings ahead. If the upper center rear view wasn't needed...

    Tesla Releases High-Res Images of the Cybertruck

    I see your initial impression, but even in ICE cars for decades now, the Rear View Mirror was placed in the upper center of a windshield for a very good reason - to allow quick visual attention to the rear, and then rapid refocusing on the road and surroundings ahead. Maintaining 'Focal Length'...

    Cybertruck Hot Wheels 1:64 Die-Cast

    You mean a little bit more faith lost in humanity after all the ebay scalping that was allowed to happen in the NVidia RTX 30XX series graphics cards? :) (slightly off topic, please bear with). To expel a small rant, we would be better able to assist creation of accessory renderings/models to...

    Elon Reconfirms Production Cybertruck Will be Around 3% Smaller. Factory Delivery / Pick Up Will Be Available!

    Not sure if it's been mentioned already (this topic has a lot of posts), but in my opinion even a 3% scale reduction needs to eventually have another Reveal Event for us to see it and also an update to the Cybertruck content on the Tesla website. Because who knows if it's exactly 3%...
