    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    I’m going to bet that this is not a Mosel Y LR. I bet it’s a Model Y AWD with 279 miles of range.

    Anyone here have a 4680 structural car yet?

    This guy took delivery of a Model Y with 4680 cells:

    New 2021 Model S battery cells & packs

    Better thermal management and higher margins. what the other companies are doing is for marketing purposes, Tesla doesn’t need to engage in such marketing schemes.

    Go to the product page (NOT the ordering page) and scroll all the way to the bottom, it’s there for all models.

    You have a 7 seater? Curb weight is listed by Tesla on their site for each model

    Model Y AWD description in the source code

    4416 curb weight is heavier than the existing LR AWD which is 4363. 4416lb WAS the listed mass for the LR AWD, either this mass figure is weong… or I’m disappointed …

    4680 Developments

    Should have added that 828 is not divisible by 96 so voltage will be different, closest is 92s9p.

    4680 Developments

    Counting the cells from images and video at gigs rodeo the 4680 structural pack is divided into four segments with 207 cells each for a total cell count of 828 cells and total cell volume 2.8% greater than the 2170 based packs. I’d hoped for a bigger volume increase.

    Yes, they're 18650s. Based on pictures from a crash where batteries flew across the road.

    British Columbia Residents Referral Code Petition

    I don’t live in BC but have lots of friends that do. If any BC members here have legal connections I suggest you use them, likely it will take a lawsuit to right this mess.

    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    Welp, this is awesome news! I’d rather pay $500 than spend a ton of time tinkering around with it.

    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    This thread is to explore the feasibility of retro-fitting HEPA filters to Model Ys that were manufactured without HEPA filters standard. I don't own a Model Y but my parents have one that was manufactured in December 2020. My mom is quite sensitive to pollen and other particulate and I'd like...

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    765LT and SF90 also beat 10 seconds in the quarter handily. Gives me hope that maybe the tracks will give an exemption to stock cars. Re-gen braking is kinda like a chute too

    If 24 kWh per 100 miles is EPA best/reported consumption, what is typical for great, average and poor driving?

    This depends on what model 3 you have. 300 is way too high for a LR RWD, SR or AWD With aero wheels even with aggressive driving. A performance on 20" tires with moderately aggressive driving will get you to 300. In AZ with LR RWD 3 on aero wheels with moderately aggressive driving I get 247...

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    The voltage plus amperage plots shared by Omar clearly conflict with the power plots previously shared. Assuming the power plots are incorrect as previously speculated by (I believe) @Torque Monster that would imply >92% motor efficiency at max torque through a wide rpm range. This would be very...

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    I'm much less positive on the Mach-E after seeing the Munro battery teardown, that is a very weak thermal control system. I've been lauding the Mach-E as a decent Tesla alternative if not road-tripping, but will have to re-think that now.

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    Not a bad post from Ritter. For what it's worth I'm also an engineer, Aerospace not automotive, but I did design the battery pack for a land speed record electric car. Note that Ritter's post is speculation and that EPA docs (at least ones involving motor power) are notoriously inaccurate. Also...

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    Eh, this is some pretty poor pontification. It's possible that the plots Omar has shown are wrong, but that's very unlikely. If they are right then 100% the battery is making 1400hp, it's right there in the plots. This would NOT show the EV is substantially less efficient than ICE, this...

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    So it looks like this is indeed electrical power to the motors not power output by the motors. It’s not surprising to me that the motors are much less efficient than normal at these super high power levels (though they should gain substantial efficiency as rpm increases if I remember the...

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    Any way of finding the units? If hp that's over 1150hp to the motors, if kW it's even more. Not sure what other units would be used.

    M3 vs. 2022 Bolt EV vs. 2022 Bolt EUV thoughts?

    If your wife won't be doing any road trips a cheap bolt should be fine. It's half the car a M3 is but I know certain ladies don't want to drive a car that's too similar to their husband's. And the bolt is a much shorter car if she likes that. If any road trips are in the future then M3 without...

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    If that doesn't do it another (expensive and inconvenient) way to save 50+lb is replacing the factory glass roof with a thin plexiglass one, I'd guess it would be <100k for this mod if you want to replicate the 3D curvature of the original, less than 15k if you go with 2D bend and roll the dice...

    This is the best comparison of the two I've seen anywhere, very nice write up. Thank you.

    And yet he says it is better than all the other non-tesla EV designs they've examined. Which includes VW, Chevy and BMW.

    New 2021 Model S battery cells & packs

    Meh, the drive train, battery, interior, electronics/speakers/infotainment, 12V, suspension and HVAC are all new. I know "fully" could imply "every component" but autocos use the term imprecisely all the time, it's normal. (But the Tires are the same and there's still four!!!! NOT fully...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    The LR is significantly lighter (~10%) than the old P100D, and with less power fade. IIRC P100D was down to 660hp or so at the end of a quarter mile run. So power to weight could be > 10% better than the P100D at the end of the quarter mile. Pretty crazy for the “slow” version of a car.

    I doubt that chill will be 3-4 seconds, it was 7ish seconds on the S historically.

    New 2021 Model S battery cells & packs

    Just in case anyone has a tinfoil chapeau around, the owner of the burned plaid was Bart Smith, an executive at Susquehanna known as the “Crypto King” who leads crypto trading. Susquehanna has a hedge fund arm and they have historically been net short Tesla despite their MM arm owning tons of...

    New 2021 Model S battery cells & packs

    If we’re seeing 459 it could be a 110s pack as well. Something like 110s74p or thereabouts.
  31. LargeHamCollider

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    ”full” packs in Tesla have been 96s since the original model S. Tesla makes max voltage about 4.15V at 100% SoC and 3.7V is nominal for NCA cells. So max voltage in “full” Tesla packs is 398.4V and nominal is 355.2V. plaid changes this. 450V implies 108S, the number of parallel cells will...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Was going to say this, AWD 3/Y are all still PM in the back and induction in the front. these new Plaid and LR Model S are the first Tesla’s with both front and rear wheels powered by PM motors.

    Model Y review after Test Drive

    23 miles according to the EPA, and will be worse at highway speeds.

    4 cells in series, 2 in parallel, 8 cells total.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Can’t help you there but would be nice to get battery pack capacity by using a combination of displayed range and EPA efficiency. I believe @AlanSubie4Life has a more exact method though I forget what it is.

    Model Y review after Test Drive

    As others have said the 20” rims make the ride much “sportier”, they also reduce your range (a lot!), wear out quicker, are more expensive to replace and are more easily damaged. Autopilot makes road trips WAY less stressful than in other vehicles. It takes some people a while to get comfortable...

    More than likely this is a 4s2p pack of 18650 cells. 🤏

    All 3 motors are now PM so if Tesla wants they definitely *could* dial up the regen.

    1. How was interior noise at high speed? 2. (kinda-a-questio) Next time you supercharge please take video or document the curve in some other way. 3. How does the frunk look?

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    From the window sticker with the cat, all motors in the Plaid drivetrain are permanent magnet. So looks like the end of the road for Tesla induction motors is nigh.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I'm going to guess that they switched to a new supplier for some component due to a parts shortage and they need new software for the new part.

    Model 3, LR-AWD First Impressions

    I think maybe his radio reception was poor which made the speakers sound terrible. Like others have said, the Model 3 sound system is truly outstanding, it puts everything else in that price range to shame.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I'll bite: 1) May 25th 2) A problem with the machine that makes the machine. I realize this is not all that specific but I don't know specifica of the production process save there's megacastings.

    Tires/wheels have a huge impact on range, 21s look cool and will help on the track but are terrible in all other regards.

    Model Y test-drive experience (not a current Tesla owner)

    Great review! I’m only responding to the bolded part above, I’ve bought two Tesla’s, one was a Y last December. Both had very minor issues (the button in the trunk of the Y didn’t make the seats fold flat initially) and I assure you these finishing issues ARE INDEED something to brush off. They...
