I've had ventilated seats in my last 2-3 cars and don't think i've ever used them, but the heaters..that's a different story. If i travel to a warm/hot climate i'm sure they would be appreciated.I would pay more to get ventilated seats. I’m sure it won’t be standard like in the S.
This has been kicked around pretty extensively on this and other fora. Several of the manufacturers, including Tesla are using cooled charging cables (this is why the V3 SC have skinnier hoses than the previous models) but there has to be a limit somewhere. Several OEMs (e.g. Lucid) have gone to overall 800V architecture and this will probably be the future for all of them eventually. For now Tesla is pretty heavily invested in 400 V.Clearly then have to change something dramatically with voltage... right? Water jacketed charge lines? What kind of black magic are they dealing with? This deserves it's own thread
Same here.I wouldn't be surprised if someone told me that the current generation of SC terminals is capable of 900 V or of easily being converted to 900 V to comply with the CharIn HPCxxx standard. IOW that the design was future proofed.
Well, he forgot to mention what cars were testing the 4680s back on battery day, too. So I have no idea. I haven't heard about any mega castings or structural packs in the Model S, but it could have happened.
