    Recent GM purchasers...

    You are of course right and I tried it, but that apparently triggered the last comment and I just had to answer one last time.

    Recent GM purchasers...

    What? I am not sure where this came from? No, I don’t own a GM dealership. Nor have I ever even owned a GM product. Your sentence just didn’t make any sense. Not rooting for or against any truck building company here. But if someone says returning a truck now to wait 2+ years doesn’t make...

    Mach E: Your Reservation does not guarantee a set price for the Vehicle

    Well, I guess that’s what Ford has to write in the disclaimer, otherwise you could potentially sue them, if the dealer hikes up the price. Ford can’t sell you any vehicle, so in the end you will have to buy it from a Ford dealer. But I wouldn’t worry too much. You can potentially buy from any...

    Oh come one, let’s not turn this discussion into what I assumed, that you assumed. That clearly wasn’t the point of my post and you know it. There are no, nor do there need to be, prototypes of Ford/GM/Dodge trucks. Because they already exist. Therefore makes no sense, right?

    Recent GM purchasers...

    No but I think you have seen real new production GM, Ford and Dodge trucks on the road? You know, the ones you want people to return for the CT?

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    In my opinion it makes a huge difference, if it’s done for safety, or longevity. If it’s done for safety, then it’s really just a different form of degradation. And with an EV you need to expect degradation within the limits of warranty. If it’s done for longevity, then it’s not ok. If you want...

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Where are those quotes from Elon, that the 2170s will fit in the Model S pack? Here is something the guy who really engineered the Model S said: It's something we've of course contemplated, but it's quite a large change to the architecture of the module and the battery pack overall.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    There is no ‘Maxwell dry electrode’. Electrodes are usually dry. They just have an interesting process for coating electrodes without solvent. Which could save a process step in building battery cells. It is explained much better here: Tesla / Maxwell: It Seems Mainstream News Coverage Has...

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    When did he say that? As far as I know the last statement was, that they won’t change the cell form factor for S and X. Other than that I haven’t seen Elon ever talking about 2170s and the S/X

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Of course it’s always multiple factors! But whatever the reason, Model S sales have dropped a lot. Maybe this is the sustainable level, but I think they could sell more.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Maybe 6 months Elon standard time? Maybe the whole company had adopted Elon’s measurement of them. I guess this has something to do with interstellar travel. Some day Elon’s space ships will travel multiple light years in 3-6 months.

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Not whole Tesla, just S/X. June EU sales aren’t in yet and May is an unfair comparison (since Tesla sales are usually back quarter heavy). But here you have May numbers: EV Sales: Europe May 2019 But Norway sales for June are in: EV Sales: Norway June 2019 The e-Tron was sold more often, than...

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    The Audi ist still ramping up, but beats S and X sales in Europe easily. And at least compared to the S, cargo capability is similar. And you are right, range is less and power is less. Still more people buy it, despite sharp price decreases by Tesla. So Tesla really needs a more luxurious...

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    He doesn’t need to answer to tweets like that at all. If they change the interior this year, this would be extremely dishonest. I get that Elon won’t tell us when what will happen, since that might hurt sales. But saying nothing will happen and then changing the interior is just abusing the...

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    So you think people don’t buy the Model S, because it has 30 miles less range than their petrol car, but thousands of Americans buy the Model 3, where the SR has 240 miles of range? That doesn’t seem very likely...
