  1. Is Cybertruck disposable?

    I get a different impression from Elon regarding what Tesla is trying to do. Maybe I'm just being manipulated by marketing BS but it seems like Elon's main goal is more about saving the planet than reducing end user costs. But in order to save the planet he needs to get everyone switched over to...
  2. What apps would you like available in the Cybertruck?

    Just read this from Electrek: https://electrek.co/2020/09/24/tesla-sentry-mode-amazons-ring-usb-hub/ Ideally, instead of a separate piece of Ring hardware, Tesla would just enable us to enter some settings as to where we want to upload sentry mode videos. From what I understand Tesla already...
  3. Another EV transportation device, cute, classic

    I really like the classic look and 3 wheel electric motor setup of the nobe. I’d have to see it in person and probably take a test drive before ordering one though. But I do love the three wheel design commuter vehicle setup. Before CT I was hoping that Aptera would finally get their vehicle...
  4. S3XY vs 3, X, S and Y

    I’d think that after this long of a setup for that joke that it would be extra gratifying to see the joke referenced more often. Every time I see the non-S3XY ordering I end up stopping to reorder in my head and giggle about the punchline ordering before continuing. So maybe the other orders are...
  5. Ring Security and Sentry mode

    I get that is how the wireless carriers want it because they charge per device. But if your Tesla vehicle is a single device and sentry mode data is just part of the data it publishes then there shouldn’t need to be a separate connection. The reason there are 2 devices here is because Ring is...
  6. Ring Security and Sentry mode

    Just read this from Electrek: https://electrek.co/2020/09/24/tesla-sentry-mode-amazons-ring-usb-hub/ Seems like the Ring integration uses its own LTE connection to upload Sentry mode video. So that means the user needs to pay for a monthly wireless connection for Ring beyond the probable...
  7. S3XY vs 3, X, S and Y

    I was just reading this article from Ele https://electrek.co/2020/09/24/tesla-sentry-mode-amazons-ring-usb-hub/ They quote what looks like a Ring marketing release as: “The first compatible vehicles for Ring Car Connect are Tesla models 3, X, S, and Y.” I’m curious if most publications use...
  8. Cybertruck to use 48V instead of 12V?

    I remember reading a number of years back that space x was using Ethernet for rocket internal communications because it was cheap and the risks of reliability could be mitigated by redundant systems. So clearly EM has a history of saving $$ by using Ethernet. If Tesla is not using Ethernet in...
  9. Charging at hotels

    one of the things I’m so looking forward to in getting my CT is off road trips all over the country. I’ve been watching lots lately c videos by current off roaders and they often mention being able to charge at hotels along a route. Combine that with California’s announcement that they will be...
  10. Battery day implications for power walls

    I am wondering what changes will happen to the power wall given the new battery tech that was announced. It would be cool if powerwalls could be upgraded to be able to charge a CT with the same speed as a supercharger. I know that people talk about slow charging at home like that is always the...
  11. Is Cybertruck disposable?

    If I remember correctly, the battery day presentation made the point that the lower overall volume of the new battery packs allowed the batteries to be more centrally located (and thus even further from the sides of the vehicle). The point was made that it was a benefit in the ride of the car...
  12. New Battery Range & Pack Architecture [Announced at Battery Day]

    Ultimately I think the announcement from Tesla is just that there will be a 54% range increase for batteries in the future of the same volume as what is being created at the moment. But for a vehicle like CT that is not yet being produced, it could just mean that the previously allocated...
  13. New Battery Range & Pack Architecture [Announced at Battery Day]

    Looking at the slide a little longer I'm starting to think that this slide shows the overall benefits to 3 groups: Range Increase: benefits the vehicle owner $/KWH Reduction: benefits the per-vehicle profit margin and the direct Tesla investor Investment Per GWH Reduction: benefits the...
  14. New Battery Range & Pack Architecture [Announced at Battery Day]

    I'm specifically using this slide from the presentation: I got the range increase percentage a bit wrong. It's 54% instead of 56% but still its over 50%.
  15. Structural battery for Cybertruck?

    So one of the interesting things in the battery day presentation was that batteries were going to become structural components along with the aluminum casting frames. But the cybertruck uses the exoskeleton build instead of internal frame. So I'm curious if the battery still gets used as a...
  16. Possible delay to CT manufacturing?

    So watching the battery day presentation, it looks like the CT gets the same batteries as the Semi. And these batteries use all the new battery optimizations that were mentioned in the presentation. (Possibly short of the structural battery?). But at the end of the presentation, they mentioned...
  17. New Battery Range & Pack Architecture [Announced at Battery Day]

    I'm not saying that I need 750. And from what I saw of the presentation, there wasn't any announcement about charge speeds. I'd be psyched if charge speed went to 10 minutes. Even if you just get to 80% charge in 10 mins I'd be happy. But it would be sweet if we get 80% charge of the 750 miles...
  18. New Battery Range & Pack Architecture [Announced at Battery Day]

    So with the new Battery Day announcements, it sounded like the new batteries would get something like 56% better range... So does that give the CT tri-motor a 750+ mile range? Looks like the CT gets the same kind of batteries as the Semi with the Full Nickle cathode which Elon mentioned was...
  19. Cybertruck Replica by Bosnian Maker is Best Lookalike Yet

    Back in the day (OK, not really THAT long ago) I ordered and bought one of the first PT Cruisers. At the time they were quite hot and I got a LOT of attention from that. Some people were friendly. Some people nearly had a heart attack or a major accident just from the sight of my vehicle. And...
  20. Cybertruck Replica by Bosnian Maker is Best Lookalike Yet

    Actually my guess is more along the lines of people being interested in the views alone. These days with social media, the views are sometimes more valuable than whatever people are viewing. There may not be any direct interest in the CT for CT sake.
