    Tesla's head of AI / Autopilot is leaving after 5 years

    There is a driverless (no head, i.e. no steering wheel or pedals) GM Volt years ago. I haven't bothered to keep up on the news from regulators allowing fully autonomous vehicles. Still safer than a typical 15 year-old with a permit. As I understand it, the fully autonomous vehicles from Waymo...

    Tesla's head of AI / Autopilot is leaving after 5 years

    "his job is done in his mind" is the crux of the matter – either Andrej Karpathy thinks he has done all he can do (doubtful) or thinks he cannot see a way forward where he can contribute all he can do in the foreseeable future (which to me is the only explanation for leaving within 12 months of...

    Tesla's head of AI / Autopilot is leaving after 5 years

    Well, I have no access to the information you're positing, also, what you've written is completely separate from the situation of being within 12 months (according to Musk and Tesla) of a product going to market. I don't know anything about Andrej Karpathy, but based on his academic credentials...

    Tesla's head of AI / Autopilot is leaving after 5 years

    I doubt anyone leaves a team within 12 months before the product goes to market.

    Ford to build 600k EV's/yr by end of next year and has 2nd EV truck in the works

    My reading of the sentence "In the next ~12 months, Tesla will be delivering vehicles at a 2.5M annual rate" is "some time in 2023 Tesla will hit 500K vehicles per quarter." That makes some wild and unknowable assumptions (raw materials, supply side logistics, any forestalled production...

    $TSLA The sell-off continues-what's wrong?

    would have been cheaper than Twitter (and better received)

    Ford to build 600k EV's/yr by end of next year and has 2nd EV truck in the works

    The difference between Shanghai and Nevada and Germany illustrates how labor laws, environmental laws, regulators, licensing, all the bureaucracy weighs heavily on the time line. Maybe Giga NY is the example to inform expectations for Austin. Investors are worried that Tesla will lose momentum...

    Ford to build 600k EV's/yr by end of next year and has 2nd EV truck in the works

    Four years is just marketing hyperbole. Who knows? Tesla is on the rev-limiter at 900K and while there's little doubt Texas will ramp up, Ford is capable of building a million vehicles as a matter of regular business. What Tesla gets built in China and Germany goes to China and Europe. Tesla...

    If Quad Motor Cybertruck is $89,900, are you still in?

    probably not. let Tesla build a few premium priced for a year or two, work out the worst of the bugs, add the important missing functionality.

    Major mistake not including charge cables with all new vehicles!

    A storm in a teacup. Tesla effectively raised the price by $200. Why not call this the smallest Tesla price hike in years? p.s. spare wheels, charging bricks … all easy ways to cut costs and increase profit margins …

    Major mistake not including charge cables with all new vehicles!

    you'll find (free) 1772 level 2 chargers "all over the place" using plugshare and chargepoint … the UMC is really an overnight trickle charger. If Tesla no longer includes the 1772 adapter, it's not an expensive gizmo. I prefer the pricing model of options instead of inclusions. Of course Tesla...

    Rivian Production is Paltry

    $172 was the all-time high after the IPO FOMO Stock was up from $36 overnight to $38 and was $40 pre-earnings. In other words: flat. Anyone asking "how low?" … seems like $36 is "how low" and we'll see how they go by end of '23 when competitors ramp up.

    Elon Musk replies to a Tweet about Pricing on the Cybertruck

    You're conflating supply-and-demand with gouging. Ford and GM have both directed their dealers to not make "market" adjustments to the msrp of their future electric vehicles (gouging customers.) Meanwhile Tesla raises the Model Y by 40% in 2021 in part by not offering the standard range – set...

    Elon Musk replies to a Tweet about Pricing on the Cybertruck

    c'mon, just google Musk and try to ignore all the negative events. I visit this forum to read about Cybertruck new news, not to rehash Musk's reputation for making huge mistakes. All I can suggest is have a look at his history with the SEC, the fraud suit settled with a $20M fine for his $420...

    Elon Musk replies to a Tweet about Pricing on the Cybertruck

    So the 7 price increases of the Y in '21 were not greed, just good business and supply-and-demand? : ) You've not been following closely. Good grief, this is a Cybertruck forum – along with the Roadster and his claims for FSD and AI, the Powerwall and Solar roof tiles, Supercharging, Boring …...

    Elon Musk replies to a Tweet about Pricing on the Cybertruck

    The R1T launch in Nov 2018 didn't have pricing, but there was the speculation of $50K base to $90K loaded since May 2018. The Rivian configurator was published in Jan '21 and brought some price changes and a lot of customers (expecting the vehicle in 2020) were excited by news of production in...

    Elon Musk replies to a Tweet about Pricing on the Cybertruck

    A $49K or cheaper CT could well happen as a light commercial variant some time 2025 or so. Tesla will see Ford filling large fleet orders to unfussy buyers, taking higher margins and incurring lower costs. Musk will want Cybertrucks dressed in Police livery. Musk will want to play his Tony Stark...

    Elon Musk replies to a Tweet about Pricing on the Cybertruck

    Except it's the other way around – the R&D has gone into the Y. The S (and 3 and X) receive upgrades as parts from the Y. The S Plaid uses Y hardware. The Roadster II doesn't exist; nor does the Cybertruck for that matter. In terms of product line-up, the Rivian R1T is the competitor to the...

    Elon Musk replies to a Tweet about Pricing on the Cybertruck

    Tesla's primary challenge is they're not ready to build the Cybertruck after the same number of years as Rivian has had to start from scratch. The Rivian pickup and SUV are cheaper than the Model X … so Tesla definitely has the problem of affordability. I think Tesla's biggest problem is initial...
