    Model X Supercharging curves, 2022

    It has become actually worth it to route and plan your trips to charge at v3 superchargers and avoid the older ones that only charge at 135-150 kW. In addition to being faster, especially at the low end of the battery, the liquid cooling makes them charge more reliably in high ambient...

    Trip planner shows wrong charging time.

    Did you have any waypoints defined in the navigation trip? I have noticed that if you have waypoints in a trip that's long enough to require supercharging, then all of the charging times are completely incorrect. It seems that in the current software, you can have waypoints, OR you can have a...

    Model X Supercharging curves, 2022

    The "Charger kW" (lavender) and the "Battery kW" (red) are nearly the same value across the entire graph, so the lavender trace is hidden behind the red trace. Here's the raw data: Date Charging State Battery Level Battery Range Charge Energy Added Charge Rate Charger Voltage Power 9:50:01...

    Model X Supercharging curves, 2022

    2022 LR X supercharge curve on a v3 supercharger: Did 14% to 79% in 25 minutes, maintained 250kW up to 33% battery, and over 100 kW up to 69% battery.

    What is considered a "long trip" when considering charging to 100%?

    Don't worry so much about when to charge to 100%, just do it such that the battery doesn't SIT at 100% for very long. I charge to 100% anytime I'm going to do a trip where: 1. There will be at least one supercharger stop somewhere on the round trip. 2. Charging to 100% cuts the number of...

    M3 performance lifetime average Wh per mile

    2018 P3D, traded in March 2022. 65,137 miles total while I owned it. Lifetime average 290 Wh/mile. About 2/3rds of the time on 21" Pilot Sport 4 tires, the other 1/3 on 19" Vredestein Quatrac 5s.

    2018 Model X with Enhanced Autopilot should I upgrade from 2.5 to 3.0 hardware.

    Are you sure that once I choose to cancel the FSD subscription that the downgrade won't be back to basic AP? i.e. Tesla's not going to tell me "EAP is no longer available -- you can stay with FSD or cancel and get basic AP" ?

    2018 Model X with Enhanced Autopilot should I upgrade from 2.5 to 3.0 hardware.

    The code base on HW 2.5 and HW 3.0 is different though. This means that even with the same EAP feature set, there are things that work better on the 3.0 HW. As an example, I have a Model 3 with HW 2.5 and EAP feature set, and a new X with HW 3.0 and Basic AP feature set. There is a road near...

    Faint beeping while driving 2022 model X

    Yes, this sounds like motor/inverter noise. If it's objectionable, open a service appointment with Tesla and see if they can identify if there is something abnormal.

    Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Discussion Thread

    It must be noted in any discussion of the power consumption of crypto mining that: 1. The crypto community is well aware of the problems this causes. 2. The structure of many of the crypto blockchains relies on a concept called "proof-of-work". This is the operation that requires massive...

    Faint beeping while driving 2022 model X

    Are you able to record it so we can hear it? It is really quiet? It may be a normal sound made by the motors but that's really difficult to speculate on without actually hearing the sound.

    New S/X "Gear Shifts"

    We've had very good luck most of the time with the auto-shift in our new X. As far as I can tell, it's basically using the ultrasonics to detect objects around the vehicle, and use that to make a decision as to whether to use drive or reverse. I also think it takes into account what gear you...

    Installed BlackVue 900X, CM100LTE module, and backup battery

    If you're getting "BlackVue Restarting" every few minutes, that means that the power wire you're tapped into is not 12V. Tesla has actually CHANGED the voltage on some wires via software updates (I was informed of this by my Dashcam installer), and what was once a 12V switched wire may no...

    I received 2022.8.2 on my new X LR about 4 days ago, but the noise cancellation is not in the release notes and I cannot seem to find any other control for it. Where are you seeing it? Edit: Not seeing that the center-yoke horn is available either.

    I think what has happened is that you have a combination of the following: 1. Actual below average initial build quality from Tesla in the early years. It's probably up to average now, but the reputation was established early on. 2. An enthusiast community that shares all of their experiences...

    Yes, I registered my LR, and the insurance card says TESLA XPERFORMANCE. I think that might just be the wrong text description, but I don't think they're charging me for the Plaid version. The premium did rise, but not by an amount that would reflect the Plaid version.

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Yes, I believe that is correct. My order agreement and loan documents do not include the sales tax anywhere, so I assume I will have to pay it at the DMV. The purchase document that they send us should also include the trade-in value so that we can get the sales tax credit (assuming you traded...

    At delivery, you will get a 30-day temporary tag and a vehicle inspection report. Two weeks later, you'll get the registration packet in the mail. Take the registration packet and the vehicle inspection report to the DMV to register the car and get plates + window sticker.

    I will. I was simply wondering if anyone had any solutions to the issues I'm experiencing, i.e. am I missing something? It does not appear so. Just got back from Carmax. Exact same offer as Tesla ($36,000), and with Carmax, I'd lose $2,250 in tax credit.

    TPMS for 2021 Model Y

    Did the tire shop you took the car to replace this TMPS sensor? If so, they likely replaced it with the wrong model. I would take a look at your receipt from the tire shop and see if they swapped the TPMS sensor. If so, they should replace it with the correct sensor at no charge.

    How do I disable the noisemaker in my Tesla Model 3

    I view such a modification as very similar to too-dark window tint. The danger comes when an accident occurs and someone figures out that the car was modified. You're definitely in a much bigger pickle.

    That is very possible. Open standards tend to fare better with adoption even if inferior to other designs. There are exceptions, however: Blu-Ray became the standard over HD-DVD, even though HD-DVD was an open standard and endorsed by the DVD consortium and the discs were cheaper to produce...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Yes, that is correct. Without FSD, you must disengage AP in order to change lanes. Disengaging AP via the stalk or the brake will also disengage TACC, so speed will not be kept. In the past, there was an AP package available that had a feature set in between AP and FSD, it was called EAP...
