    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...

    Where are updated cargo and seat pics?

    yes, i have tried searching and yes, I have seen those two threads. They still give me zero concept as to look and feel of the 3rd row and cargo with seats folder or upright. All pictures of 2nd row are from outside. And I don't see anything useful for 3rd row or rear cargo. To spell it out, I...

    Beside myself with Excitement! After 2 Yrs Hard Work I've sold my wife on the X!

    Thats great. My wife said yes a week ago, and then a few days later got cold feet. The most expensive car we have bought was a Honda CRV at 30k. Will hold my reservation as long as possible. I want to have her test drive the X and see if things change.l

    Elon says Tesla factory in China, operational in two years

    There are a whole slew of articles today saying that Elon was quoted in China, saying he will have a working factory in china in two years. There is no direct source to the transcript or video of it... at least I cannot find one. Has anybody else been able to find this? I want to see the exact...

    X reservation is in. Volvo out. What can I do for salesperson and forum?

    It was too good to be true. My wife has gotten cold feet or something. She feels it way too expensive. In fact, she is back to talking about getting a 3 year old Honda Pilot since we "don't need luxury and don't need to spend money on something new". I'll still keep keep my $5,000 deposit for...

    Where are updated cargo and seat pics?

    I checked out the huge seats thread, but don't see any real pics of the X's seats, configurations, etc... did I miss this? or perhaps those who took delivery are not the type be on the forums hence we still don't know?

    X reservation is in. Volvo out. What can I do for salesperson and forum?

    I test drove a Model S P85D this weekend at my local Tesla dealer. The following day, I explained to my wife how amazing it was. For the past 4 years, we have always known we would get a Honda Pilot for our next family car. But in the past months, I have been excited for the new Volvo XC90...

    Radar Detectors: Your Experience (Simple Implementation)

    So are you/others implying that the rest of the windshield is shielded from RFID and such frequencies? And inferring from the earlier comment, shielded from the inputs that radar detectors receive?

    TSLA. Great potential, but stock overvalued says Morningstar

    All the finance guys who do all these number analysis/valuations always say that. Just like Netflix and Amazon have never been able to justify their value, Tesla is the same. I don't think it follows valuation "rules" as other companies do.

    Is Tesla preparing to charge for Supercharging?

    New renderings of storage space and 2nd row seats! (9/15)

    A lot this thread reminds me of various discussions before Apple releases a new product. As the release gets closer, more data is released and Apple fans and forum followers make assumptions on these pictures and loose feature definitions. The Apple fans get disappointed before the product comes...

    Model X tow capacity is too low for me

    No promise was ever made, it was more of a leak from Jim Chen, VP of Regulatory Affairs, and the words were "This vehicle will have Class III towing capability. That means over 5,000 pounds, actually close to 10,000 pounds of towing capability" at about 9 minutes and 40 seconds in Videos -...
