It's obvious that keeping to one color has manufacturing advantages. So I think it fair that Tesla offers a standard color and charges extra for non-standard, even though it's the only maker to do so.
But a four-figure amount to get, say blue instead of white? And why would the extra for red be...
Starting Jan 1 of next year, if you spend over $100k Canadian on a vehicle, you pay an extra tax of (your choice) 20% of the amount over $100k or 10% of the whole cost. Sadly, it will be well into next year before Canadians start getting their CTs, and I'm sure many will exceed $100k.
First the big screens went in police cruisers. Couldn't locate them in front of the driver because that's where the instrument display is, so the screen went in the middle of the dash, and (at least in those I've seen), aimed straight back instead of being canted (turned) toward the driver...
Dear me, we can't offend any delicate snowflake, so let's have a contest: What to rename the CT's "Fart Mode." For instance,
I know solar panels are not efficient, but I won't be driving much, and (if need be) there's a nearby Tesla charging station.
I'd welcome comments about how I'd go from a roof with about a 15-foot-square array of solar panels to my CT charge part. And if you know of any suppliers of suitable...
When I watch the current drone footage over Austin, I'm thinking that viewing along with me are Tesla's competitors such as GM, Ford, Polestar, Lucid, .... (They watch in case they benefit from a fallout tip, see a flaw that will make them smile, or just out of general professional interest.)
Hope I'm posting this in the right place.
I've long checked YouTube every morning, starting with Austin updates, and am grateful to the drone operators. But I don't know how YouTube operates.
When a viewer "likes" or "subscribes" to a clip (as the drone people request), what does it mean, what...
I thought I knew two rules for pouring cement.
1. Don't pour on bare soil, but on a layer of compacted gravel or some such that will remain stable.
2. Try to keep the pour damp (for a few days to a week, depending on how fast it would otherwise dry), so the concrete will be stronger.
This is a remarkably sophisticated site, and I'm grateful to whomever put it up. Just one minor nit to pick:
Seems every time I inhale, my log-in has expired (though I ticked the keep-me-logged-in option), making me re-do my password.
Do you really have to be so protective against non-members...
Tesla Gigafactory Texas 11 September 2020 Construction Updates
That's the title of the best-yet YouTube depiction of current and projected progress, just posted.
If you want my take-away, it's that with the downpour over, they're putting the finishing touches on the groundwork -- and the first...
I understand one motor at one axle, or one at both axles. But I don't get the benefit from three motors.
Presumably, for the 3-motor to have a longer range (and to justify the extra $20k) it must have a beefier battery. For buyers willing to pay for extra range, would it not have been more...
Assuming I live long enough to hear that my CT is about ready, what will the procedure be? (I've not bought a Tesla before.)
For instance, there's a Tesla service facility in my town in Ontario. Is that where it will be offloaded?
Will I get to specify options? Might that affect the timing...
