    Automated driving journal for mileage tax deductions

    Much easier than hooking up a cable. I've included some screenshots that will give you some visuals as to how the Volvo app functions.

    Automated driving journal for mileage tax deductions

    Thanks. I appreciate the 3rd party options, but not interested in them. I like the convenience of it built into the car and its own app... being recorded and available for download at my convenience. It surprises me that Tesla doesn't have this. Hoping it's hidden somewhere and people just don't...

    Automated driving journal for mileage tax deductions

    Does Tesla have some sort of built in data dump where I can download a record of all trips? My Volvo records the following, which I am hoping Tesla does too: 1. Category (business, personal, etc... 2. Started - time and dated 3. Start odometer 4. Start address 5. Stopped - time and date 6...

    Future outlook on Tesla stock and Model 3 delivery

    I agree to the comments that majority of seeking alpha's tesla articles are almost always negative and poorly informed with misrepresented "facts". I imagine there are two kinds of Tesla posters.... those who are working for much larger firms in order to discredit Tesla in anyway possible...

    A Model S caught fire while supercharging in Norway (link in Norwegian)

    I was skeptical that things inside the car could burn hot enough to melt even aluminum, and found a great series of progressive pictures of a Ford F-150 (aluminum body) from the start of the fire all the way to end where its just rubble. There is even a picture with "electrical" looking sparks...

    A Model S caught fire while supercharging in Norway (link in Norwegian)

    Several have come to the conclusion that the battery pack did not burn for given reasons.... if so, then how do you explain the melted body which would require a lot of energy to melt?

    Model X vs Volvo XC90

    The comments to the battery percentage degradation don't line up to what I recall reading 6-12 months ago. Does anybody have any links regarding this? Tesla/Elon quotes of course (not other batteries).

    Model X vs Volvo XC90

    I plan to own my car's 10'ish years. Have not done so yet, as I am not that old and was living in new york city for 8 years. My CRV is 3 years old. While the idea to keep the model X for 20 years sounds great, I am not sure how likely this would be for me... I understand Tesla is at the...

    Model X vs Volvo XC90

    I am not getting the Hybrid T8. I would be getting the base Momentum model T6, with add ons I am looking at somewhere around 56k. So that is actually 44k difference. I don't expect that to ever be made up in gas. I am all ears if you could convince me otherwise! It wasn't easy canceling my...

    Model X vs Volvo XC90

    I imagine our car after this purchase will be electric... about 7 years out, to replace our 2012 CRV

    Model X vs Volvo XC90

    I canceled my X reservation last week. I have come to terms that spending ~100k is just too crazy for a middle class person like my self. I'll be getting the XC90 most likely. I'll be putting down 2k for the overseas delivery program, and will get the car in about 6 months. For those of you who...

    Model X vs Volvo XC90

    How did you figure 10 cubic feet.? The Audi Q7 is 10. US news has the XC90 as 15.4, quoted below with link. 15.4 is on par if not better than most other 3 row SUV's in this same size grouping (toyota highlander, honda pilot, CX9, acura MDX, audi Q7, etc...) "The 2016 Volvo XC90 has 85.7 cubic...

    Tesla Finance: Production X Leasing Details & Top-Tier US Bank Financing Rates

    I probably shouldn't be spending so much on a car (I am a Honda kind of guy). But I do have a reservation for the model X with 85% intention of proceeding in 6 months (depends on wife, stocks and my DIY job on the basement :rolleyes:). With that said, if I do get the X, I plan to hold on to it...

    Tesla Finance: Production X Leasing Details & Top-Tier US Bank Financing Rates

    Can the finance be paid off early? Say a year down the line, I am tired of the monthly obligation and just want to pay off for piece of mind. And if I am paying it off, which amount am I paying... the total extra money they would have received over the life of the loan, or just whats left on...
