    Auto Lane Change Question

    I have been wondering this.... When you put on the blinker it will change lanes for you. I understand that. I also understand that you need to turn the blinker off at the end of the change. What happens if you don't turn the blinker off ? Does it just keep changing lanes until you turn it...

    Video Request - Parallel Parking

    Anyone out there with the new auto steering update can you post a video of the car parallel parking ? Finding nothing on Youtube yet. Guess this is not very interesting to most people. I guess filming it from the outside would be the most interesting and obviously hard to get without someone...

    New Superchargers coming ?????

    Given that the Superchargers use 10 40 amp chargers from the Model S and we know that the Model X has a 72 amp charger in it. I think that the chances are high that we will start seeing new superchargers with 10 72 amp chargers in them. This would allow two things. 1) faster charging and 2)...

    Active safety - side collision avoidance

    This was in the presentation from about 7:55 - 8:20. Apparently the car will steer to avoid a side collision on its own. Anyone have more info on this from being at the event. I find it odd that this was glossed over so quickly with such little detail and no one has really mentioned it or...

    Super Supercharging !?!?!?!?

    So I threw this out in another thread but did not want to hi jack it. Thoughts on this ? The Model X mules/RCs appear to possibly have charging doors on both sides of the car. What is the fastest rate a Model S/X could theoretically charge ? My thought is that if you could plug a Model X...

    Best Model 3 I have seen to date !!

    2015 Superchargers on East Coast

    From TM maps that were published on their website it seemed that 2015 was going to be the year for Superchargers on the east coast for a change. However, reality seems to be a bit different. YTD shows only 25% or so on the east coast. Are the maps terribly incorrect ? Or are we going to see a...

    Model 3 Battery Size

    All this discussion on the Model S 70D has me thinking. If the Model S 60 was physically the same size battery as the 85 and it had fewer cells in it leaving empty space. Perhaps the physical size of it could be reduced and the old 60kWh battery could fit in the base Model 3. The...

    Supercharger Coverage Misleading ?

    This was recently put out by TM. Seems to be about a 200 mile radius. Isn't that a little misleading ? You can get to most of those places but its a one way trip and you can't charge at most of them and keep going. I can see it both ways and yes this is more dramatic but IMHO less accurate...

    Supercharger or Mini Supercharger at home ?

    US Supercharges 20% done ?!?!

    Thoughts on how many superchargers will will have when the system is completed. I am predicting about 750. Based that on approximately 48,000 interstate highway miles in the US and a Supercharger about every 65 miles or so. That gave me 20% done. Your thoughts on totals and percentages ...

    Will US Superchargers DOUBLE in 2014 over 2013 ?

    I think the possibility is fairly real. If my calculations are correct we had 50 superchargers on 12/31/13 and there are now 83 opened this year. Opening 17 more by the end of this year is very aggressive but I think we have quite a few on the verge of opening.
