    The Truth Behind The Terrible Resale Value Of Electric Cars

    Case study of 1, but my 13k mile 2021 Bolt EV has a higher resale right now than what I paid for it in May 2021. Part of that is because it'll get a new battery pack soon due to the recall, the other because of market conditions. A sign of the idiocy of the market right now - both my EVs have...

    Elon Says Final Cybertruck Design is Now Locked! Updated Production Timeline = Mid-2023

    That's the curb weight for small battery pro. Bigger battery XLT is actually 6,590 and some websites report a Lariat at 6,710. Rivian clocks in at an insane 7,148 lbs. I know it's all hyperbole and guessing games at this point, but regardless of what Elon has said I don't see the CT coming in at...

    Elon Says Final Cybertruck Design is Now Locked! Updated Production Timeline = Mid-2023

    I do think ya'll are still missing the pack weight factor. Using the Model S 85kWh/1200lb pack weight as proxy, the pack alone on a 400 mi CT is going to weigh ~2800 lbs. A steel body is already gonna be heavy too. Lets do more sloppy math - F-150 Lightning has a curb weight of 6100 lbs with a...

    Elon Says Final Cybertruck Design is Now Locked! Updated Production Timeline = Mid-2023

    I'm in this camp. If the trade off for 400+ miles is 8+ second 0-60, sign me up for the mileage. But I honestly don't think that's a factor and we're not sacrificing range for acceleration since we can always just go slower ourselves. I think its truly a cost/weight thing. 400 miles, 2 mi/kwh...

    Is $TSLA going to 600.00?

    Some of those supply chain shortages may not ease until 2024. https://www.cnn.com/2022/03/30/business/global-supply-chain/index.html https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/dec/18/global-supply-chain-crisis-could-last-another-two-years-warn-experts...

    Is $TSLA going to 600.00?

    My uneducated and uninformed opinion is that this is a long overdue snap to reality for the market. Trendline over the last few years has been idiotic and unsustainable for a number of reasons, including Tesla valuation. People with money will buy the correction and ride it up next time. People...

    This thread went from dead for over a year to real active from one semi-snarky comment lmao.

    HD receivers front and rear

    You know I've been playing with the new bobcat battery electric skid steer lately (as opposed to the umbilical electric one which has been around for a while) and that did get me to thinking about powered attachments. Like, could CT-as-engine (or any EV platform) be a replacement for the PTO for...

    HD receivers front and rear

    IDK - I bet it'll be an option, or at least an aftermarket mod. I've had concerns about how the exo/structural will work with aftermarket agricultural/functional accessories for mid-duty work (snow plow, winch, front-mounted snow blower (snowvac), spreader, etc), and this kind of confirms for me...

    This is a dumb question, but can Tesla's charge (via an adapter) from a Chargepoint CCS DCFC?

    Okay, forgive me because I own a Bolt and a PacHy and am unfamiliar with the chargers on Telsa vehicles. I did google this, and I found no clear answer - so please no "let me google that for you" comments. Can a Tesla use a CCS DCFC? Is there an adapter to go from (for example) a Chargepoint...

    Recharge information @ home?

    First, welcome to the group! Second, you're going to want to install something called an EVSE (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment), also known as an "L2" or a "Level 2" charger. These are 240v chargers, typically between 30 and 80 amps - some are hardwired, some use 14-50 plugs. It depends. Not...

    Rivian Reverses Price Bump for Pre-orders before March 1

    $5k was already 2x too expensive on that camp kitchen, and now they want $6,750 for it?!. You wanna know the kind of camp kitchen I could buy/build for that much money? Heck, I could buy a competition-grade Yoder Smoker, a follow-behind trailer for it, and add a small solar arrray and LiPo...

    VIN Assigned Model Y Order. It's not Austin. What do I do?

    I have a 2018 bought in Dec 2017, and have had a string of problems related to it. I detailed it in a post on the PacHy FB group recently and I'm happy to share in DM my series of probs if you want to know. I don't believe my negative experience is typical, however, and I've never had a problem...

    VIN Assigned Model Y Order. It's not Austin. What do I do?

    This is my fear too. My PacHy was just recalled for battery fires, and based on Chrysler's other "fixes" for problems with this van I have zero faith in their ability to fix this in a timely manner. As such, I've been thinking about a 7-seat MY. But I want to be sure of one from Austin, because...

    Giga Texas Paint Shop for MY

    I've heard a lot about the Berlin paint shop, the new colors, the new tech, etc. But I haven't heard bubkis about the paint shop in Texas. I have a hard time believing that they'd build a fancy schmancy paint shop in Berlin and not have Texas have the same tech and capabilities. Is there an...

    Tesla plans to buy Mercedes Benz

    I don't see the net benefit from buying M-B to Tesla. What Tesla is constricted by is not sales volume or exposure to that market, its: - Manufacturing capacity - Battery supply - Eventually, raw material availability If Tesla is going to do some acquisition, it's going to be to address those...
