    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    I agree since I don’t think the others are making much, if any, money on this segment.

    range anxiety

    My experience last winter in Minnesota is that you can lose up to 50% of your range in temperatures of -10 F and below which is close to your -25 C. If you have heat pump issues you can use the seat heaters and front defrost on the red setting to provide heat until you get it into service. I...

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

    Alot of the 4680 hype has disappeared with underwhelming introduction of the Austin Model Y. I would be skeptical until we have real world experience and reporting on these cars. If I was buying now I would wait a year to see if they experience problems.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    This is fun to see cars from Austin be available to the general public. Anyone please let us know if you take this offer.

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    They did have one last weekend. Wear some comfortable shoes. You will be standing in lines for a while.

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    My wife and I were at the Twin Cities Auto show this weekend. They allowed you to test drive a number of electric cars including the Ioniq 5. My wife really liked it, and liked it better than our MY. So we may have a second electric car joining our family.

    I’m amused at your straw man argument that has little to do with my post.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    The 4680 has been touted as this magical product all this time but the only magic it seems to have is helping Tesla’s bottom line.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Because there are Twitter postings showing Tesla employees showing off their new model Y SR in California.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I don’t think the Austin number matters as they are selling to all their employees.

    Phantom braking gone with 2021.44.30.21

    I've also noticed sometime in the last two software updates that phantom braking is gone. Did lot of driving last weekend in rural Minnesota on two lane roads and did have not have a single occurrence. Even had a giant crane that was taking the entire width of the approaching lane go by...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    All we can is speculate on the reason the sales are still company only. It could be because they are having issues or just because they aren’t producing enough to satisfy the demand they expect. I would assume ten of thousands of orders the minute they make the Standard model available.

    4680 Model Ys?

    The only way you are getting free FSD is if Santa Claus brings it for Christmas.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Tesla is saying they have supply chain issues and the charger debacle looks like they are trying to avoid supply chain issues with chargers. Why on earth would they want to add another screen to the 3 and Y and add another supply chain issue? Especially since they have an order backlog of...

    Should I talk my wife out of an X and into a Y?

    I’m trying to imagine that in a Minnesota winter as it slowly opens and allows all the heat to spill out of the side and roof and then slowly closes on the refrigerator it just created.

    Should I talk my wife out of an X and into a Y?

    Take a drive in the Y first and include a rough piece of road. I love my Y but the suspension needs some love. I may do coil overs.

    Virulent anti-EV protester with pictures of children mining lithium..

    Tell them if they are so concerned about the mining of lithium are they going to throw their cell phone, data pads, and laptops with their lithium batteries away? Or are they just concerned when it’s electric cars?

    Out of state delivery to receive Model Y Built in Austin Texas

    I've seen some speculation online the 4680 is currently disappointing because they don't have the battery chemistry right yet. So it may be better in the future.

    MYLR goes right on highway entrance lanes on Autopilot

    It’s for stoplights and stop signs. It might be part of the FSD package. I have it but I’m not part of the Beta.

    New Owner - mileage concern

    I try to stay between 20% to 80% normally but have no issues occasionally going outside that range. Especially if I’m going on a long drive where there is no supercharger I’ll charge to 90% to 100%.

    MYLR goes right on highway entrance lanes on Autopilot

    There is a beta for the traffic light and stop sign recognition and stopping. I have it on my car but tried it one day and realized it wasn’t ready for prime time, slowed and stopped too soon.

    MYLR goes right on highway entrance lanes on Autopilot

    It’s damn annoying. The only fix I have found is not to be in the right lane and stick to the middle lane if it exists or drive fast in the left lane.

    Autopilot causes an accident. What now?

    I am also trying to figure out that exactly happened. The OP said AP steered him into a median. That sounds like FSD beta as AP just lane keeps.

    Mobile Charger no longer included

    We already have an example of how they will handle it with the deletion of radar. When I was finalizing my MYLR delivery online I got a little screen explaining radar was no longer included in the car. I had the option to either accept the change or cancel the order. I imagine the charger...

    I can see the ad copy now: “Unlike Tesla the cost of the mobile charger is included in the price of our cars.”

    I did. His test temperature was not even below zero F.

    Out of state delivery to receive Model Y Built in Austin Texas

    The question now is why do you want a 4680 car at all? Shorter range with a small reduction in price is not worth it to me. 2170 all the way baby!

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I would need to see the LFP batteries tested in colder temps than that. Typical Minnesota winter has temps in the -5F to -20F range.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    My guess is the Standard models are all going to employees as a continuation of testing. So they are driven in the real world and any issues they discover are kept secret. Most likely they got a really good price on the cars as well.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    And the EPA docs had it at 70.6? Pretty close.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    They certainly aren’t advertising this Standard model. It does seem like they are hiding something.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    That’s comes out to 300 even.
  34. Brolan

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    So you’re thinking 4680 production is low so they need to make these? Because they have to be 4680 cells because of the structural battery pack? I wish Tesla would say what was going on.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I don't know why you guys are still arguing when the thing exists and is shown in the Tesla Raj video. If you watch the video it's showing 53 miles range at 19% charge. Doing the math properly results in 279 mile range (rounded up). It says Standard Dual Motor on the screen with an Austin...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Sure it's them because I had to speak with at least 3 of THEM to find out about my car and get delivery arranged. It would have been nice to be taken care of by one person but the first SA I talked with blew me off and I had to call back for another.

    In my purchase experience emails get mostly ignored and if you want action you need to get them on the phone where you have their full attention.

    For those who feel personally victimized by Uncle Elon’s EDD ping pong game!

    I think you guys are getting nailed by the shifts in other customer orders caused by the BBB rebate and 4680 battery hype. I ordered my MYLR at the beginning of September 2021 with the expectation it would come in January - Feb time frame of this year. It bounced around quite a bit then...

    Dead Polestar 2 at Enterprise Rent-A-Car

    This is the kind of thing I'm expecting with Ford and Chevy pickups. I have absolutely no confidence that they will get the engineering right with their history of cutting corners as much as possible to get maximum profit at the expense of the owner.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Tesla promises: FSD will be done, and done, and done. Cybertruck and Roadster will be in production. 4680 batteries will be the best thing since sliced bread. Your mileage may vary.

    Dead Polestar 2 at Enterprise Rent-A-Car

    It's especially hard to judge with an EV because regen might cause the brakes not to be used for a while.

    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    Not sure if my next car will be an EV. It will be replacing an SUV and depends on how well charging infrastructure is built up in northern Minnesota where l travel and recreate. If it doesn’t grow enough in the next few years I will get a hybrid or plug in hybrid.
  44. Brolan

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

    They will just have to bump up the sensors and/or processing power until they get it. They are just trying to do it the cheapest way possible so it takes longer.
  45. Brolan

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    The main problem is that we don’t know how they will use the 4680 batteries in the car. Will they just maintain the current range and pocket the profits? Will they increase the range? And if they do that do they charge more? I wish Tesla would tell us what they are doing. It’s past time.

    Homelink module: garage door closed on the car

    This is why I never enabled auto close or auto open on Homelink. Since it has no idea if the door is opened or closed, or what is in the way, it's an accident waiting to happen. Just push the button when it's safe using your human judgment.

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    I passed a carnival on the side of the road and flashing lights on the rides triggered the emergency vehicle warning.

    Charging sickness

    I’m wondering if it is hypersensitivity to noise. The supercharger station makes noise and the heat pump also kicks into high gear. Try some noise canceling headphones next time you go.

    Water in Frunk after touchless car wash

    My first wash was through an automated car wash and had a small amount of water in the front trunk. I washed it next in one of those wand/brush commercial car washes next and it was dry.
