I'd like to point out that the SORB test (Small Offset Rigid Barrier) that absolutely obliterates vehicles is conducted at only 40MPH. The above shows nowhere near that level of damage, so the truck was moving slowly (or slowing) at impact.

For reference, here's the Model-Y SORB test video. The car was totaled.





A snippet of the Cybertruck's SORB test was tweeted by the official Cybertruck account. The results were devastating.

Noted, all of those are either after my post or cite the forum,

And 'hit with a stop sale' the were 'hit' since they're halting deliveries before anyone outside knew.

Duh.

And this doesn't change the fact that the accelerator cover issue wouldn't cause slowed braking in normal driving modes.

Nice find.

"Dispensing" energy? More evidence that Tesla needs an actual PR department.

I have received back from tesla on their diagnostic, that the vehicle was operating properly at the time of the accident... I still havent received the logs myself.

I originally stated it as a brake malfunction, the more i explain the situation and with the recent stuck accelerator recall, if the accelerator was stuck could explain why the regen was delayed... still waiting for tesla on all ends. slow slow slow

finally got my estimate after 17 days.

If it was the result of the cover slipping and getting stuck on the firewall I doubt it would have unstuck itself and reattached, the cover would have to come off completely to release the pedal. The vehicle would have tried to accelerate again once you let off the brake if the pedal remained stuck.

Reduced regen is "normal" operation if the pack is cold enough and/or high SOC so that may qualify as "operating properly" in their eyes.

That sounds like wishful thinking!

You claimed you pressed the brake and it the braking action was delayed. However, when a Tesla gets a braking command, while the accelerator is depressed, it instantly cancels the request for power.

And, as pointed out previously, if the accelerator was stuck due to the cover coming off, the cover would still be off. So nice try, but that's not what happened.

It looks like you were just going faster than you expected, and the corner had less traction than you expected. Happens all the time. You ran wide. The corner was sharp. It won't brake if the available traction is already used up by cornering forces.

This is another element of being an early adopter.

After the harm your nonsensical original post caused I hope it’s another few months.
