    New Battery Range & Pack Architecture [Announced at Battery Day]

    There is a blog (and book) called Zero Below Zero which was written about riding a Zero electric motorcycle through the Minnesota winter. Would've told them all of this. Charging is a big problem for a motorcycle because AC Level 2 chargers are heavy and bulky. Motorcycles just don't have the...

    It's called an analogy or example. -Crissa

    Tesla adding to land holdings for Austin factory

    He's said as much, but I doubt he will. There's a certain attraction to California and we have a very robust infrastructure that just is lacking outside Austin. Hard to get people to relocate outside of California if they're not retirees. -Crissa

    Is Cybertruck disposable?

    Dry-in is December of this year, so I expect them to be doing test runs of the tooling in June. I won't say 'all in' because Tesla has never stopped adding or swapping around their production lines at any of their factories. -Crissa

    Will the Cybertruck be allowed to drive in Europe?

    Will the Cybertruck be allowed to drive in Europe?

    The long glowing blade is the light. The described it as being a laser actuated lamp which BMW is the only one I know with actually using and I don't know if they sell that model in the US yet. I don't see how the plate that can change its numbers like something out of a spy flick helps them...

    Will the Cybertruck be allowed to drive in Europe?

    They're not separated and they use a type of light not approved in a bunch of states. *shrug* I don't know any other state that approves the digital plate-holder, either! (Nor should they, it's a dumb idea.) -Crissa

    California Bans Sale of New Gasoline-Powered Passenger Vehicles Starting 2035

    None of these proposals affect current installations or backup power. -Crissa

    Will the Cybertruck be allowed to drive in Europe?

    That's cute, but nowhere does he say it can't comply with the same rules that other big trucks do. We know there are places you can't buy/sell full-sized trucks on the retail market. And there are a bunch of rules the prototype violates in the US currently, most notably the lights and mirrors...

    Introducing the Patented Cyber Hitch, full motion 5th Wheel Hitch for the Cybertruck

    Tesla is known for changing parts around all the time. The Y has been out for six months and they're already adding the fully-cast rear frame. So they'll just update that component. -Crissa

    Tesla adding to land holdings for Austin factory

    Standard move on Tesla's part, but I don't think they'll win this one. Site plans are public info unless there's a specific law to shield them from exposure. Being copyrighted is not an excuse. -Crissa

    New Battery Range & Pack Architecture [Announced at Battery Day]

    Same for my Zero. But Tesla cars maintain their pack temperature independently unlike the passively maintained Leaf and Zero. You leave it out in the cold and it will try to keep itself in moving shape unless you've set it to storage mode, -Crissa

    Video: Sandy Munrow discusses Tesla Battery Day

    They can't say things like pre-announce price drops lest they lose current sales. So they announced cost drops which were frankly amazing. -Crissa

    New Battery Range & Pack Architecture [Announced at Battery Day]

    Actually, it's kinda the opposite - more range means stops are longer. The best charges are barely long enough to go pee, recharge your drink, then get back to the truck. Stop late, stop often. Keep the reserve charge low so your battery is hungry. I can't say you can do the same trip, but...

    Does Cybertruck need mega-castings too?

    Yes, they'd definitely use it in different places than the Y. But putting aluminum up against stainless is a great combination - steel is hard and strong while aluminum is light and stiff. You can use aluminum to decrease the flex in a shape while using the steel for the outer parts which need...

    Costco Superchargers?

    Costco is a little behind the times when it comes to charging infrastructure. But their plan is bulk and efficiency, they probably don't think of themselves as a 'stop and charge' place. It's not like you can run out to move your car when it's done while you're in line. It would be pretty...

    Cybertrucks Will Have Larger Parking Spots at Tesla Superchargers

    I am hopeful that Autopilot and cameras will make it less so than when I'd borrow my dad's truck. I was still driving it until a couple years ago, when my mom finally said goodbye to it. (I was the only one driving it.) I've seen what Ford can do in their Flex and expect in two years Tesla...
