    Supercharger - Madras, OR

    Good to know! I want to drive that stretch sometime and I don't see any more charging coming in any time soon. Those communities along the route are very small!

    Supercharger - Madras, OR

    I drove through last weekend and there are no signs of a Tesla Supercharger construction as of yet! I am hoping once Troutdale is finished off they would head over to Madras but who knows

    Supercharger - Madras, OR

    The distance from the planned Madras Supercharger to Baker City Supercharger along US HWY 26 is 225 miles! I would love to drive that stretch but that distance is too far to attempt in my current Tesla (and while I am traveling stopping in Madras to to charge to 100%, or headed west, a stop in...

    Considering ID.Buzz

    What will sway me is more usable interior space to car camp adventure with! Although I didn't realize the length and width was very similar to Model X....I thought the ID Buzz would be bigger?

    Windshield repair/replacement in metro PDX?

    My insurance referred me to Safelite to have my windshield replaced a few months ago...Maybe Safelite changed their policy? I did try through Tesla but it was going to take a number of weeks as they only do glass work on an irregular basis (and it was going to cost more than Safelite).

    Supercharger - Madras, OR

    This Madras Supercharger is a big deal for Portlanders (I don't think folks have mentioned this obvious insight yet...). If one is driving from Portland to eastern Oregon and back: taking US 26 over Mt Hood is the most frequently used route with Madras lying right in the path both ways. Cove...

    Supercharger - Madras, OR

    I think Bend will continue to see congestion during peak visiting times. Bend is a primary destination east of the cascades in Oregon. I wonder if the upcoming Tesla Service Center in Bend will have public chargers?

    FS: DreamCase memory foam mattress

    Yes! I hope you enjoy it! A few tips that you may find useful: -There are the two "pillows" but I actually found them most useful to put under the pad where the backseats meet the trunk in order to level out the surface even more! [Im sure you know to use the case flipped over to level...

    FS: DreamCase memory foam mattress

    I'm not camping anymore : ) I do think it's a brilliant all in one system for the Model S (works for the Y too). The Model S has the bump drop from where the seats fold down to the rear level. Using some sort of inflatable camp pad or a roll out foam mattress doesn't work well. With the...

    For Sale: DreamCase memory foam folding mattress. Specs: "94cm x 194cm (37.0” x 76.3”) portable folding memory foam mattress". It has the hard outer case which folds out to level the rear hump with the folded down seats (if you're in the Model S you know what I mean!). Width and...

    Camping in a Model Y

    I am wondering how the pad is supported past the rear seats as it hits the front seats? Is it wedged into place pretty well or does it sink a bit when weighted behind the front seats?

    The ride from Burns to at least John Day is really beautiful! I also think the next stretch is as well but cannot verify from personal experience!

    2022 Austin Model Y vs 2021 Fremont Model Y

    I swear I saw somewhere that the Model Y will be the first vehicle produced at Austin?! If they are going to be using the same engineering that Berlin is putting in for the structural battery pack then we might see the Austin Model Y (with structural battery pack...which cells tho?) beginning...

    Service says $22k for new battery on 2012 Model S

    I agree with you! On another note, do you think the battery packs introduced with the Model 3 and 2170 cells will have similar failures down the line?

    It will fit just fine based on a comparison of the dimensions! See photos above!

    And the length is 78.7" for the Model Y compared to 76.3" for the Dreamcase....seems like it would fit!

    And I dug up some measurements of the Model Y. The 37" matches perfectly with the exact same width as the Dreamcase

    FS: DreamCase [memory foam mattress for camping]

    It's hard to discern from this picture but there is a piece that folds out and down to the rear floor to support the head area of the mattress. This is the nice thing about the dreamcase as it offers support for that section over rear seats when they are folded down. This picture is Model...

    FS: DreamCase [memory foam mattress for camping]

    I saw somewhere either in a camping thread here or on Facebook that it fits lengthwise but that the the Model Y is a little deeper for the rear seatwell. This would mean you'd have to have a bag or something else on the floor of the rear seatwell

    Tesla Model Y Long Range Only Hits 220 miles in Real World Test

    Cost! I think the margins on the SR are already a lot lower. The less batteries in a car the more cars can be made and sold. Also, I do think there will be a LR RWD eventually...so, don't want to get the SR RWD range too high...

    Tax credit (Green ACT)

    I rated as informative. I thought you really laid out the process and the case very well and in depth. I am hopeful it will be passed but I wonder if it will actually make it? Is it a top priority for Dems to include in a larger package? It's hard to know what the popularity of this bill or...

    New battery tech for 21 models

    Obviously, the Model S Plaid+ will have the 4680 cells and delivered later this year but that will be coming out of Fremont. I wonder if the Model Ys coming out of Austin will begin with the 4680s (not announced yet so as to not Osborne Fremont sales) or if the first Model Ys out of Austin will...

    When is structural battery pack & 4680 cells coming & Why are you not waiting until then?

    A 1000 or more cycles? Did I get that right? What do you think battery degradation for the current packs will be after that many cycles? Tesla Bjorn has what 8% degradation after two years? (after 80km?)

    When is structural battery pack & 4680 cells coming & Why are you not waiting until then?

    Yeah, sure, but if the structural battery pack with 4680 ends up improving range significantly as well as increasing charge curves and longevity due to thermal management improvements then I am trying to figure out if its worth waiting for. This seems to be one improvement that is more...

    When is structural battery pack & 4680 cells coming & Why are you not waiting until then?

    Thank you for your post! You have informative insights into the engineering! I do not know much beyond what I read around the web...I am just going off what I see, read, and watch. I am hesitant to believe the current 2170 packs are going to have great performance for the life of the vehicle...

    MY LR, when to order?

    I am waiting to see what comes out of Berlin mid-2021 for the Model Y. The paint shop will be great but more significantly I am looking at what the 4680 structural battery pack will do for the car. I am wondering if the Berlin Model Ys (and future Austin Model Ys?) will have more range...

    When is structural battery pack & 4680 cells coming & Why are you not waiting until then?

    I agree! I decided to go for a used Model S years ago instead of waiting in the queue for the initial Model 3 launch. I do wonder how long off we are from the "next latest and greatest" battery pack from Tesla. If we see something coming out of Berlin mid-2021 (as iustin 's configurator...
