    New Supercharger Fair Use Policy

    I remember Musk saying that target is for DUs to last for 1 million miles. I don't remember him saying that this target has been achieved. Would be nice to see a quote. Then there is Tesla Semi for which Musk said it's guaranteed not to break down for one million miles of driving. But that is...

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    The number will go down because of growing sales and new cars obviously do not experience the problem. This 1% of all is not a useful number. We would need % of >3 year old cars and % of >30K miles cars and maybe % of 90 battery cars.

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    If filling up the gas tank would take 5 minutes longer than before I would like to know the reason.

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    Which battery does he have in his car and how long has he driven like this (sorry if I missed this info earlier in the thread)?

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    Before I have considered 40kW Chademo charging pretty harmless for 85 battery. Instead I have avoided charging to 100% and usually keep my battery at 50% when driving locally. Now based on comments from Tesla it sounds like the only thing that is harmful to battery is DC charging even at...

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    There are 18kW Chademo chargers in Finland which I've been using and I would not be very happy if these charging sessions (sometimes 1 minute to test the charger) have incremented the counter in my car.

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    Thank you for the information. Can you please confirm that there is no counter that would for example count how many times you have DC charged and the charging rate restriction is based solely on battery cell condition analysis?

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    There is at least this report from 85-battery owner experiencing throttling.

    Prediction: Free supercharging to be brought back!

    Only problem with "free" supercharging is congestion caused by locals (not much yet but when Model 3 roadtrippers hit the road). Free supercharging can be brought back if that problem is solved. It can be solved with an algorithm that decides when you are on roadtrip and do not have to pay for...

    Autopilot 3.0 Hardware: When and what?

    Two quotes from Tesla configurator page: "self-driving in almost all circumstances" "system is designed to be able to conduct short and long distance trips with no action required by the person in the driver's seat" So they clearly say that it will not work in all circumstances and there will...

    [Poll] - are you mad that your new Tesla just missed Autopilot 2.0?

    The only thing these guys should say about changes is that any change can be introduced at any time and they are not told about changed in advance. Tesla should train their sales/DS staff to tell this fact if buyer asks about future changes. About battery size we know that Elon twiited that...

    [Poll] - are you mad that your new Tesla just missed Autopilot 2.0?

    The sales team should never say that because they do not have that information. They didn't know it's coming, they got the information at the same time we did.

    Firmware 8.0

    How about Chademo, anyone tried? It's always useful to know if Chademo charger is giving max amps.

    Uber AP ahead of Tesla

    Google cars have driven without a driver for a long time. When comparing to Tesla we need to compare cars that anyone can buy from car dealer (or from Tesla) today.

    Bloomberg finally writes a really fair and balanced Bolt article

    Yes, base Model 3 should be kept affordable and some people never even need 200 miles range. Most likely Model 3 will have bigger battery option for those who need it. Bolt does not have that option.
