    Tesla Semi/CT VIN Investigations

    I've been scouring the NHTSA VIN database api for info on the new Livewire S2 Del Mar, trying to figure out the VIN prefixes/etc for that bike and hopefully to glean when release is imminent. All this talk on the order update page got me thinking I should also do that for the Cybertruck. So...

    Let's get down to the real or imagined demand for a Midgate

    Edit: to clarify since you can't edit poll options after people start answering them.. question is do you absolutely need the midgate and will be pissed off if not included (useful) or do you not care either way (useless). Granted this is not scientific as this forum is most likely a higher...

    EV credit for Motorcycles Incentive Bill Text interpretations/opinions?

    I assume its been mentioned in other threads, but I don't see any thread devoted to it. I see many articles mentioning the EV credit for motorcycles is no longer included in the final bill, but I also see that the way the bill is written does not specifically preclude 2 or 3 wheeled vehicles...

    Strong Non-Tesla EV presence at the 2022 New York International Auto Show I'm not commenting on the quality of those EV vehicles with a presence at the auto show, just that there are quite a few models/brands presenting fully electric cars/suvs/trucks at this weekend's auto show at the Javitz center. I will be going, cause its right...

    120/240v outlets to replace generator..

    I realize this is all conjecture at this point given nothing specific has been confirmed, but I'm wondering what kind of load these 120/240v outlets will be. 15a? 20a? How much wattage? Any possibility for 220v outlets? It would be nice to replace a portable generator with the on board power...

    What would you pay for the cyberquad?

    Obviously we would all get one if it was ridiculously cheap, that's not what I'm asking. Also not asking what you think it will list for.. As we have no information to base that off of. Given no specs and just going off your gut of what would get you to pull the trigger or not, what's that...
