    CCS Adapter - ?

    So far I have used about a dozen different CCS sites. I just expect to have issues. It is a surprise when it works on the first try.

    What happens if you turn the main breaker off for a while ? Does the 5.8 go to zero ?

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    You could be right and they are all fake postings. You could also be wrong. We are heading into the last week of the month and the last week of the quarter. ;)

    Tesla BEV Competition Developments

    I might be crazy but, I owned a Prius and a LEAF before buying a Model S. It appears to me that the Lightning and the R1T and the Cybertruck will all be in short supply for the next 3 or 4 years.

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    Glad to hear that Tesla is producing the Model Y Long Range in Austin. Hope this will start reducing the 1 year backlog we are seeing on some configurations.

    Should I sell my 2015 Tesla Model S?

    I had a 2012 Model S that I bought from the Tesla CPO program. When it got close to the end of warranty, I sold it and bought a new Model 3. No regrets. All Teslas are fun to drive. I have since sold the 3 and currently drive a Y.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    The production numbers from Austin and Berlin seem to be going in different directions. https://electrek.co/2022/06/18/tesla-achieves-production-1000-cars-week-gigafactory-berlin/ How long will it take for Austin to get production to 1,000 cars a day ?

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

    And you are assuming that the Bay Area is typical of the American housing experience and I can assure you it is not typical. Most condos have at least one assigned parking space. Many if not most apartment buildings also have assigned parking spaces. The only problem is getting electricity to...

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

    Supercharging a large pack is not a good long term solution. This is kind of drifting away from the topic of 4680 cells, but there are lots of threads on the subject of Condo living with an EV. This may seem like a difficult problem to solve, but it's not impossible by any means. A couple of...

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

    Yes I agree. When Tesla builds a long range plus with say 40 or 50 miles more range than the present long range version, I will be one of the first to push the buy button.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Austin delivery question. If the car was built in April, why did they wait until June to give it to a customer ? https://www.teslarati.com/tesla-model-y-4680-gigafactory-texas-customer-delivery-video/

    Richfield, Utah Supercharger

    I agree with everything you said about Richfield supercharging. You could say the same about Nephi. However I would also add that the CCS stations are also a PIA for different reasons. These stations are often broken, always hard to start and no one seems to care.

    Elon: Working on Tesla NA Service. Goal of having 2/3 of cars have same day service w/ no wait.

    I have been waiting 3 weeks now for a new Model Y windshield. It's not expected to be in for another week. Same day would have been nice. :rolleyes:

    Ford dropping dealers for EVs

    If they would have had fixed pricing to start with I would have reserved a Lightning on the first day. I have no idea if Jim Farley can make this happen, but he is smart to recognize this is a problem for Ford.

    Supercharger - Northwest - Kalispell

    Harumio no longer requires you to give them your Tesla account information. The changed this a couple of weeks ago. Much better now. https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/ccs1-tesla-adapter.259802/ Now are there any CCS stations in Kalispell ?

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    It seems entirely reasonable to speculate that the 4680 is the bottleneck for Austin right now. It also seems like this is important enough to have more than 1 group of people working on resolving this issue. https://insideevs.com/news/589715/panasonic-4680-battery-samples-tesla/

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Doubtful they are producing any LR or P in Austin. The SR+ production numbers seem to be rather small for some reason. Maybe those 4680 cells are harder to build than they thought ?

    I don't care about non-EVs anymore

    I like the Everything else is a waste of time comment. Pretty well sums up how I feel about gas burners. In a previous life I owned a Lincoln V-12 and a 66 corvette. :oops: Here is a link to one of my first EV's, an electric motorcycle. I went through 3 battery packs before I passed it on to...

    What's the fastest way to start a CCS charge session?

    I tried the local EA station here again today. I agree with you it does work better if you activate the session before you plug in the car. The car did give me a message about charge cord not in all the way, so as others have suggested I lifted up the cord just a little bit until the green...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    In my new house the laundry room is right next to the garage and back entry door. It is close enough that when we first moved in to the house, I used the mobile connector in the dryer outlet and ran it out the door to the car. It was very close to the end of the cord but it did work for a couple...

    What's the fastest way to start a CCS charge session?

    This incorrect. There is no software in the Tesla CCS1 adapter. It only does pass through from one plug to the other. No SD card at all.

    What's the fastest way to start a CCS charge session?

    My experience with CCS charge stations is about the same as yours. Very frustrating. I think that the Tesla CCS1 adapter works as it should. The problem is the CCS charge stations out there are very poor quality. I have used 3 different networks so far, Electrify America, EVgo, and Charge...

    CCS1 Tesla Adapter

    Yes EA seems to make everything harder than it needs to be. For example why is the station number above the screen different than the number by the nozzle. WTF ????

    CCS Adapter for North America

    To me the most interesting part of this chart is that the 10 year old Model S outsold a brand new offering by Ford , the Mach E. 2nd thing to note here is that VW is big in the EU, but here in the states it barley makes the top 10. Really looking forward to seeing if these trends hold up for...

    Are you planning to own post-warranty?

    It's a really great question and one I thought about for a while. My first Tesla as a 2012 Model S that I purchased from the CPO program. It was a fantastic car and I hated to sell it, but when it got close to the end of the 4 year warranty, I did put it up for sale. Reading the recent postings...

    Super Chargers about to get really busy in the near future

    Tesla right now today is building new supercharger stations faster than I have ever seen. Take a look at supercharge.info 97 new sites under construction in USA alone. 199 new sites are in the permit status and will soon be under construction. More EV's on the road is a good thing, not a bad...

    California Supercharging cost goes up by 20%

    Interesting. I did not even notice until I read this thread, but the price in UT has also gone up. Salt Lake City is 48 cents peak (11AM - 7PM) and 24 cents off peak. Most of Utah outside of SLC is 44 cents 24x7.

    This is why I HATE the dealership model. Ford makes some decent products. It's just too bad we have to put up with this kind of BS from the dealers.
