    Austin built MY LR quick review

    Have we heard of any recent MYAWD deliveries/orders? Seems like Austin has fully switched to LR after the initial run of AWD.

    Supercharger - Santa Nella, CA (under construction Mar 2022, 48 V3 stalls)

    https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/posts/6628795/ I think the 7 cabinets per transformer may be more of a transformer limitation than a Tesla limitation. Only time will tell but with more of these larger transformers being used we can see if it requires separate switchgear or if we will see 32...

    Supercharger - Bend, OR - SW Industrial Way

    Can you point out these indications of Tesla wanting to install large L2 installations? This makes 0 sense. They want to encourage travel. Needing 6+ hours to charge is not going to give new buyers confidence in being able to travel with an EV. The being able to get money for L2 is more to...

    CCS - buy now or wait?

    You didn’t need a car to order one. Harumio wasn’t requiring a vin for quite some time.

    Any Model Y with new projector headlights in the USA?

    Hopefully this is true but if they posted a picture of the main screen with car details it would be more proof. There is nothing preventing them from taking pictures of a MYP and saying it’s LR.

    EV sales service center coming to Vancouver WA.

    As for other service center, they might have the stalls open, but with limited hours, and Tesla owners will need to understand that stalls could be taken by the Service Center. There's a couple of local places to eat nearby after heading to the cannabis dispensary. If they don’t want the public...

    Supercharger - Santa Nella, CA (under construction Mar 2022, 48 V3 stalls)

    There’s 2 transformers as discussed earlier in the thread. One for 32 chargers and 1 for 16. That’s why there are 8 cabinets closer to the larger of the two transformers and 4 at the other end where the smaller one is. And yes, 4 pull through stalls unless they do something silly like install...

    Supercharger - Bend, OR - SW Industrial Way

    As trying to prove a negative. You say in a follow up post it’s likely a SC but the prior post you suggest it’s HPWCs. If you combine the 2 posts it would come across how you want but separately they tell different stories. I agree it doesn’t say supercharger specifically but what else could it...

    Supercharger - Bend, OR - SW Industrial Way

    It comes across that way whether you intend to or not. If it were 8 HPWC, Tesla would not be the tenant, the hotel would. Tesla does not provide destination chargers anymore. It is up to the business owner to buy and install and pay for everything. Tesla will then *generously* put you on their...

    Supercharger - Fairfield, CA - Travis Blvd (under construction Aug 2022)

    Did you happen to count the number of stalls? I only see 3 V3 cabinets which leads me to think 12 stalls but the switchgear cabinet looks quite large unless it is a Powerpack (not a megapack). Surprised no one noticed this construction sooner. Looks like we’re just waiting on PG&E.
  11. Mrbrock

    Supercharger - Bend, OR - SW Industrial Way

    There is no “associated electrical equipment” for HPWC. No cabinets, no switchgear, no transformer. It would only say charging posts. And I don’t think I have seen a permit for L2 chargers refer to charging posts, that seems to be reserved for L3. Tesla doesn’t seem to care about spacing...

    Supercharger - Las Vegas (Tivoli Village)

    Looks like the address was updated.

    Supercharger - Sparks, NV - 8 V3 (Permit Applied 8/8/22)

    Tesla has applied for a permit to install 8 V3 Superchargers at the Silverstate Plaza on N McCarran Blvd in Sparks, NV (address on permit is for ROSS but a supporting doc has an address for the B of A in the north corner of the lot). This recently popped up as Q4 on the map so this follows...

    Superchargers in Northern California (location speculation)

    Permit has already been found for 3rd Fairfield site.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    They already have a structural load floor assembly. They have had them since 2020. It is also confusing since the “floor” of the 2170 that is structural is above the battery. The battery bolts to the underside of this structural floor. By bolting this floor in you make it structural then the...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Why does everyone insist the front megacast is so different than the rear? They swapped the rear in without a structural pack. Why wouldn’t the front be the same? 2170 Fremont isn’t structural so why won’t the front megacast bolt onto the existing Fremont platform? You keep saying it won’t but...

    Thank you for checking. Can’t believe they still want to build this: when they could be building this:

    Supercharger - Vacaville, CA - Alamo Dr (location found Aug 2022, 12 V3 stalls)

    Later in the package this page shows bathroom building by others so I think it will be new and part of this project. (N) indicates new, (E) indicates existing. Also Tesla appears to be providing 2 trash cans and 2 recycle bins. The signs provided are also interesting. 5 ev charging only, 6 30...

    Supercharger - Edmonds, WA

    The applicant is Sarah Pomeroy of Blymyer Engineers. Here is a screenshot of their EVSE installation page. Yes they do other brands (they are currently doing a 3 EVSE site at a Target in Texas (Pflugerville?) so that doesn’t scream Tesla (the $300k valuation is crazy high for 3 stalls). Maybe...

    Supercharger - Bellevue Square, WA

    The address for that one was 575 Bellevue square, this used a different adjacent address. The old one was 20 V2 (10 cabinets). This one is only 5 cabinets so V3. And the initial one from 2017 was updated a couple times in 2019 but always had an issue with placement of utility transformer. This...

    Supercharger - Bellevue, WA - SE 38th St

    This one still shows as ready to issue as of 9/2021 but no grey pins on the map. Wonder why they haven’t moved forward.

    Redmond/Bellevue Apartments/Townhomes with charging

    Probably a bit too late for you but the Metro 112 apartments are applying to install 18 Tesla Wall Connectors.

    Here is another permit for the site work. Definitely some movement.

    Supercharger - Issaquah Highlands, WA

    Here is the activity on this permit. Looks like a letter was sent in February outlining corrections but nothing since then. What is telling to me, is the lack of a pin in the Find Us map. Doesn’t show much hope from Teslas end that these will happen anytime soon. There has been much more back...

    Supercharger - Bend, OR - SW Industrial Way

    Be careful, presenting actual facts to back up your thoughts can make some of the natives restless 😂 And thank you for tracking these things. I would say the percentage is 18 of 21 since the 3 without quarters are more of a “we’ve begun talks to put one here” instead of “we’ve got an agreement...

    Hah, I just found this permit as well without seeing this but of course Marco beat me to it. Link to the full plan set. https://permits.cityofvacaville.com/eTRAKiT3/viewAttachment.aspx?Group=PERMIT&ActivityNo=2206-0355&key=DP1%3a2206230855230281

    Supercharger - Fairfield, CA - Travis Blvd (under construction Aug 2022)

    A 3rd Supercharger is coming to Fairfield, CA. This one is at the Raley’s at 3001 Travis Blvd, kitty corner to the existing Supercharger on Holiday Lane. Find Us map shows Q3 2022 so with the recent approval this might move quickly. Contractor is North Valley Engineers. There is also a...

    New OneCall ticket on 8/1, construction to begin 8/4. Last one expires 8/9. Maybe more construction is imminent?

    Supercharger - Bend, OR - SW Industrial Way

    If it shows a timeline in the next quarter or two there is usually a permit issued by that point. Anything beyond that is a crap shoot.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I am hoping they combined a few processes and are using the front megacast attached to the current floorpan and 2170 battery assembly just like they swapped out the multitude of rear pieces for the rear megacast. That would eliminate all your extra parts and robots and save re-engineering the...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Yes it is. They need to see where to look to see if the LR from Austin are using the front casting. I am not saying to see if the Peabody MY has the front casting because as it is a MY AWD it has the front casting. But using it as a demonstrator to compare to Austin LR is perfect. People think...

    Supercharger - Olema, CA (under construction Aug 2022)

    Yes, the concrete bases in the last picture are for the supercharger pedestals at each parking spot. Unique to Tesla. And there are 6 of them to match the 6 stalls being installed.

    Do you use a windshield sunshade?

    For most people, so do their feet. No bicycle needed.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Pics of the casting? So people who get a LR from Austin can see how easy it is to tell and if their car has the front casting? Nice to see someone else maybe agreeing that the 2170 LR MY is a separate line using the Fremont process vs using the 4680 line with a modified 2170 pack to fit in the...

    Will our Model Y come from Austin?

    They will say whatever they can to get you to buy a car now. If it means implying something that isn’t true, so be it. They don’t want you to delay waiting for an Austin build. There isn’t a long wait for MYP from Fremont so there is no reason to ship all those extra parts to Austin to build...

    Just bought my LONG RANGE Model Y made in Austin

    It is easy, you just need to reach behind the font wheels and take a picture looking for any part stickers indicating one piece cast. Near one of the coil overs.

    Supercharger - Lompoc, CA (permit applied 2021-09-21, 20 V3 stalls)

    With no target quarter, they might be having issues with the proposed site in terms of a lease agreement or issues with the city and permitting. Hopefully they can get those ironed out quickly.

    Supercharger - Tillamook, OR

    Was there last weekend. Nothing has changed. Just the pad for the switchgear cabinet and maybe transformer at the west end and the two light posts in the middle matching the site drawing above and pictures in post 16.

    I would put everyone here in that boat. If you can prove to have only stated facts then please do. I was taking information from sources everyone here trusts and basing things on those “facts”. I see my error now. No one can be trusted. Treat everything as fake news.

    So did a quick Google search of Cyber Rodeo 4680. This article popped up. Lots of great analysis and I’m sure we dissected it above. https://insideevs.com/news/584886/tesla-cyber-rodeo-4680-pack-cutaway-analyzed/ Quick takeaways. 828 is what was shown at Cyber Rodeo. 74.1kwh is what this pack...

    Don’t even need to take a wheel off. This picture is from a while back of a Tesla owned AWD MY supercharging. A passerby snagged the pics. They did not jack up someone else’s car and remove a wheel to take the pics. There is a clear part label that says MY CAST ONE PIECE. Just need to reach your...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Must be my bad memory. If I had time to go back through all 5000 posts in this thread plus all the other Austin threads, I could have sworn someone said they could only use structural 2170 on the 4680 line so they’d need a second line (and adding a structural floor to the 2170 pack seems like a...

    Will our Model Y come from Austin?

    If the goal is to speed EV adoption, it needs to have much lower income limits and car price caps. Force the manufacturers to focus on lowering prices if they want to dangle the $7500 🥕 in front of customers. And force manufacturers like GM to focus on making cars like the volt and bolt more...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Because I think they said they were building a 2170 line. And everyone on here who disagrees with me saying they can’t use 2170 batteries in 4680 designed cars. They the front castings are incompatible with anything other than the floorless 4680 structural pack. If it were the same line, they’d...

    Will our Model Y come from Austin?

    Elon is talking about lowering prices as inflation subsides. In the past he has raised prices when rebates were available. Wouldn’t be surprised if prices inch back up as most orders are looking to be fulfilled in 2023.
