Interestingly - since just Wednesday I checked and - the 4680 Model Y has been seemingly removed from the design studio. Either this means they know how to make the 4680 in the Long Range version or something's up as they ready the factory...
This is pretty cool, and deals with compatibility with J-plugs in the box. I'm tempted to buy it.
Reliability, cable weight, and the CCS protocol still are bugs to be worked out before the charging woes will be cleaned up. And perhaps more frustrating, that means even the Supercharger network is also going to have teething issues as they adapt to being compatible with more vehicles.
The 'Cyber cell' is ready and meeting expectations.
This is what they said on the earnings call.
So... No more worrying about how they're going to reach 500 miles of range; they know the answer, even if we don't.
Sounds kinda interesting! I love me a little pop-up event. Solar and electric trailers often are a topic around here...
We've had this argument a dozen times. Raising the price by $10K is only 14% for the Tri Motor, but it's 20% for the Dual. 3/Y prices are back to what they were when the Cybertruck was released.
Performance would be the 500 mile range version, Standard would be the 300 mile one.
Apparently the average for those who sought out the electric F150 were far more active than the more common...
Sometime you need to carry things that don't fit in a van. And I can't rent an EV van or truck until someone buys them anyhow.
And this is why the Cybertruck will be better:
It's only taller when it needs to be.
It's only uncovered when it needs to be.
It has a nose that doesn't hide a...
We've had much handwringing since someone said the bed was 4' by 6'. We don't know who, but they're presumably an employee. But we also don't know how they were measuring it, or if they were rounding any.
Not to laugh at someone's misfortune, because there will be those problems and certain cars will have a malfunction from time to time (like those Model Ys which the heat pump flaps froze open, or the poor guy whose Model S couldn't prep the battery for charging under a certain temperature)...
Photobombed by a Smart Car at four minutes.
At seven minutes they observe it's kinda loud.
43 minutes, Nikki discusses how it uses more power than her Lightning did while towing.
...And they make positive noises about the Cybertruck in their comparisons.
Aptera is running another round of crowd funding, although this one is open until they begin shipping. Probably don't want to be in the position Sonos is in, where institutional investors have demanded they liquidate and compromise their...
