Sounds more like something Ford would put in their advertising brochures :D but I can only imagine infrequent use cases of V2V charging Teslas because of the very low incidence of Teslas getting stuck out of charging range.

But I'm sure it would be a 'lifesaver' for that rare unlucky someone, saving both time and expense if a tow truck was the only alternative.

you have no idea how often something like this would come in handy for someone like me, who rents teslas to Floridians in the Colorado mountains

I don't think it's about innovation, it's about value and how much extra the feature costs to add. And how much additional value would be added by not having to use the already existing Mobile Connector and 240V AC outlet, vs. whatever would be required of the internal electronics and software to enable a dedicated port to port DC charging system and having a dedicated cable only for this application, a cable that would likely cost almost as much as a Mobile Connector, which many already have and that is more useful for other purposes.

Sure, it would be cool, I just don't see many people forking out $200 for the cable when the MC would already work if someone needed V2V in the wild.

Simply plug your 240V charging adapter into the CT charge port. You will never have to charge your truck again. Genius!

That would be about the least innovative way they could do this, but I guess really it’s for emergency purposes. So maybe 20 or 30 miles of charge in an hour would be all that’s really needed.
Or charging toys. Aka the coloring book and kid quad

Dont laugh i remember when the lightning came out they published an article about how long it would take 2 lightnings to discharge completely if you tried to charge them from each other.

How long have you been this bad at analyzing the evidence?

Tesla is growing marketshare faster than any other automaker in the world because they offer more value than any other automaker. The Model Y is the best selling car in the world, including gas cars, precisely because it is loaded with the best technology at a value price-point and you don't have to add on a bunch of expensive trim levels or options packages to get the technology people want. Because that's what adds tens of thousands of dollars to the price of a new car or truck.

Automakers that price themselves out of the market do not have the best-selling cars in the world. Go back to "Go", do not collect your $200 and skip the next two turns.

Lucked out and scored one at the local Tesla near work, can’t wait to surprise my son with it!

Sales agents were so nice, they looked everywhere but they seem to have run out. As I was about to drive off the guy ran out to the parking lot to hand me one!

Sorry, buddy after I waited 5-6 years, you will get my Cybertruck over my dead body!!!

Aaah Oh wait here is key card Mr Terminator. Terminators can't mind read right. I have PIN lock on Cybertruck start so I can run away before Mr. Terminate finds out it needs a password to start :).

( Note on why I said waited 5-6 years. I have late reservations ( early 2021) so I had to adjust years because I will probably not get Cybertruck until 2026/2027)

Kind of ironic this topic comes up and today we jus had a city wide blackout. Had to run home and get out the extension cords. Had all the essentials up and running in 15 minutes.
