    What are you going to get while you wait?

    I could have sworn I responded to this thread once before to say that I had a 2012 LEAF that I was determined to hold on to till CT arrives, but I have been getting a bit impatient lately, and the LEAF hasn't been doing so well with the commute in -25C forcing me to buy electrons at probably the...

    Side sail area?

    I know Central Alberta isn't close for you, but this may give you an idea (and might be handy for someone who is in or going through Alberta:

    Cybertruck second most searched EV on Google

    I still don't get why that means northern Canadians would want a roadster. I am saying even in southern Ontario I would have expected the trucks to be more highly anticipated. And much of Canada has harsher winters than here. I kind of feel like while you came across as arguing we are really...

    Cybertruck second most searched EV on Google

    2cm might be an emergency in Vancouver (not sure why??? ) but that's still a light dusting to me in southern Ontario the "we all got to experience winter" comment I made the other day was in reference to the 55 cm we got overnight.

    Cybertruck second most searched EV on Google

    I'm confused, are you saying in Northern areas you prefer to drive cars with no ground clearance in the winter?

    Cybertruck second most searched EV on Google

    Everyone got to experience it yesterday. :) Even in the GTA sports cars get insurance put on hold and go into storage till spring while the owners pick up a cheap "winter beater" to drive around during the snowy months.

    Cybertruck second most searched EV on Google

    Really? Canadians are waiting for the Roadster? I must be the odd man out. I can't imagine spending all that money on a sportscar that I can't even drive in the winter, but a semi-affordable electric truck sounds about perfect to me. plenty of clearance and AWD, with seating and cargo space...

    NBC announces Ford and GM promises but overlooks Cybertruck

    You are correct. I must have failed to clear the calculator from another calculation. Not sure how that ended up at that number. I will fix the original post. It is still a lot more than most people think they are capable of on their own. everyone assumes they are buying whatever is leftover...

    NBC announces Ford and GM promises but overlooks Cybertruck

    The claimed 30GWh/year if divided into 150kWh packs = 200,000 [edited] cars per year, and they will be building a second factory in the USA for 2023. GM's battery plans are nothing to ignore.

    NBC announces Ford and GM promises but overlooks Cybertruck

    ... For GM they will come from the Ultium battery Gigafactory they just built. https://insideevs.com/news/554044/gm-ultium-cells-plant-november23/

    Ordered a Silverado EV

    Not everyone got in on day one of each reservation list. For me, I have $100 deposits in on all 3, Ford, Chevy and Tesla. I really want the Tesla, but if Ford or Chevy can get one to me faster I will take that while I wait on the CT. ...maybe opting then for a later build of CT. Looks like I am...

    SilveradoEV 2024 deets finally revealed:

    Should they be allowed to show something so obviously false in the advertising? 22.2 mi/kWh???? so the 400Mi battery is only 18kWh? LOL.

    What Aftermarket Wheels Are You Thinking About for Your CT?

    I'm gonna wait and see what wheels it comes with first.

    Autonomous bus in Ontario Canada runs into tree Bus attendant in hospital (non-Tesla)

    The investigation is still ongoing, but given the state of the bus after the crash I would guess one of 2 things probably happened. a) the attendant had a medical event (heart attack or something) and fell on his controls sending the bus off course at full speed or b) the bus was rear-ended...

    Electrical and dimension requirements

    I think you are mistaken, perhaps you are used to a different brand of panel, those all look like single pole breakers to me.

    A bit of paranoia

    TBH I would be surprised to see ANY new car that doesn't have that feature. It has been a feature in cars for at least a decade now. In my opinion, any car coming out now that doesn't have that option should be considered faulty.

    Autonomous bus in Ontario Canada runs into tree Bus attendant in hospital (non-Tesla)

    Obviously this has nothing to do with Tesla and their FSD, but expect to hear about this as FSD is the first thing people think of when talk turns to autonomous vehicles...
