    Update after full reveal

    Get good tires, and RWD is just fine in the snow. Get crappy tires, AWD will help you get going too fast and then you won't be able to stop :) This was a "delivering first production cars" event. Really, it was a public broadcast of a company meeting. The follow up on the site with the extra...

    Sono Motors unveils its car on 27th of July

    Probably more for "look we're cool" than for practical purposes. Daily average 6 kWh/m^2, 86% theoretical efficiency, available car surface, say 15kWh/day (per car) in the ideal conditions and using currently unavailable tech. With today's tech, probably less than 3kWh/day in ideal locations...

    Albany, NY to Boston, MA - How much battery usage?

    Twice a week, two and a half hour drive turns into three hours, it would get tiring. I'd be asking the same question with $30k on the line between 75D and 100D...

    Albany, NY to Boston, MA - How much battery usage?

    Did that a few times in S 85. In August, 24C, 5 people in the car, Boston to Albany was 210Wh/km (105km/h average.) In October, 10C, 2 people, Albany to Boston was 199Wh/km, also 105km/h average; same time, Boston to Albany was 220Wh/km. You should probably get better rating with the 75D.

    Tesla Solar Roof in Canada

    That's 2000 sq.ft. of the roof (e.g., 50' x 40' house footprint), and 70% of the tiles? I imagine if I was pricing it, that I'd look at less than 50% (south facing only, then not all of them because of the limitations), and my 2000 sq.ft. house only has ~1000 sq.ft. of the roof, which ends up...

    We (Tesla) may collect ... short video clips ...

    The latest customer privacy policy (it may have been in the earlier ones, but I didn't read it in detail), in a telematics section has ... we may collect certain telematics data, including the following... short video clips of accidents; ... We may collect such information either in person (such...

    Is it possible to hack the software to unlock battery, autopilot, etc.?

    These types of hack have been around for years. Sometimes software only, sometimes with a bit of hardware (e.g., having Nvidia GeForce turn into Quadro.) This is such a specific case that it would take an actual lawsuit to set a precedent. I agree that it would get expensive, for both sides...

    Three winter Pirellis (7-9/32, ~12,000km) free to a good home (Toronto)

    Yeah, this should go into for sale forum, and it will if nobody wants them for free(*) You pick them up in the Danforth & Pape area, or at Leslie & Hwy 7 around noon on Thursday :) Had a non-repearable flat, decided to go to a different winter tire. (*) Free is good, but I'll also take a nice...

    Has everyone received the lastest software update?

    The update that added the repeated nag when you're left plugged in at a supercharger after fully charged? (My car got the update while in the service, and I had to call them to have them unplug the car as I was getting a message every five minutes.)

    Same here. Arrived in about 10 days (to Canada, from Sweden.) Easy installation, works as advertised.

    Be honest: is SCing on a long trip annoying?

    I always feel bad about drafting, unless I'm really in a bind. After all, it ends up having that truck burn more fuel, which doesn't feel right both from the environment point of view, bot even more from the "I'm robbing somebody of a few cents while they're working a tough job".

    Next generation 2170 cell battery packs

    ICE vehicles going 400 miles on a tankful is more of a "I don't have to go to the gas station twice a week" than road trips. I do agree that more range would be nice though. The pain and trade-off is that you carry around the extra weight all the time, for those few times that you need it. If...

    Ohio Bill to Ban/Fine Self-driving Cars on Ohio Roads

    Let's back up a bit here on the "attitudes and thought processes" :) I'm equating AP2 with Level 5 autonomous driving, however many years away from it we are, because that's what I interpret this bill to be about. As in, I'm not in the car. I'm across town, and I just hit the summon button...

    Ohio Bill to Ban/Fine Self-driving Cars on Ohio Roads

    Read the proposal. Tesla AP1 is just fine. It's only the (still theoretical) Tesla AP2, where the driver is not responsible for the operation of the vehicle that is "in danger".

    Ohio Bill to Ban/Fine Self-driving Cars on Ohio Roads

    I'm sure there will be updated versions to differentiate between "capable of autonomous operation" and "autonomous operation", but this is why Tesla themselves talk about laws needing to be in place. For example it'd be interesting to see what the insurance companies do. They may very well...

    Is it possible to hack the software to unlock battery, autopilot, etc.?

    I find it convenient, for me as the owner, that I don't have to pay for the features I do not want, but, when reselling it, the buyer has an option to enable those features. I also find it convenient that one can enable some of the things after the fact. Especially when the features get into...

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    There was a technician working on the units about 10 days ago (Oct 19th) around 9pm when we stopped in Kingston to charge. That's probably when it got fixed.

    Chevy Bolt - 200 mile range for $30k base price (after incentive)

    The dealers, at least in Canada, have the option prices, and the number of allocations for the "2017 model:. What they don't know is when those cars would get actually delivered.

    Would you buy a non-Tesla EV while waiting for a Model 3?

    If it looks good (to me), drives well, has at least 300km range, has over the air updates, sure. So far, nothing like that (outside of Model S) is available. Chevy Bolt (for me) fails the first one, but that's simply a preference for the shape - I wouldn't get it even if it had a Tesla badge...

    Bolt EV EPA range = 238 miles combined!

    Baby steps, I guess. For some reason, I think GM figures they don't want to freak people out by a different way of doing it. Even when there are ICE cars around without that shifter in place (Lincoln, Mercedes, I'm sure more...) Also, reusing what they have in the parts bin does speed up the...

    Bolt EV EPA range = 238 miles combined!

    Got it. This image suggested otherwise, but I guess you're saying that the P in the middle is saying that we're currently in P, rather than what it looked like. Good stuff.
  27. Cebe

    Bolt EV EPA range = 238 miles combined!

    I was going to argue wasted opportunity, in removing that shifter, putting it somewhere else, and giving us more usable space for other stuff. But there is an argument of "people are used to it", and perhaps it's just a preference, so, well, I didn't argue. Then I saw the images which show...

    Chevy Bolt - 200 mile range for $30k base price (after incentive)

    Yeah, I know, the screens suggest otherwise. The 58 kWh comes from the (Canadian) pricing/description which says "Powertrain: 58 kWh Electric Motor". I have to assume that there is a missing comma, and that they mean 58 kWh battery capacity *and* an electric motor :)
  29. Cebe

    Chevy Bolt - 200 mile range for $30k base price (after incentive)

    Officially, it seems to be a 58kWh battery.

    TPMS

    Just wondering if it's a problem with the sensors. My friends June 2016 70D is running into this, where the TPMS reading is different (lower) than the actual, where I've never had a problem at low temperatures with a Dec 2014 85.

    TPMS

    Have you tried measuring "manually" what the pressure is? Is it actually 40psi when the warning goes off? Also, is it a recent car?

    7.1 > 8.0? Seems like an update for Tesla's legal team, and a net loss for customers.

    +1. Without AP, you take your hands off the wheel, and the car (if properly aligned) will continue straight, at least for a while. Chances are you're not going to keep your hands off the wheel a long time, thus the famous "knee steering manouver". Now, with AP, you are one software bug away...

    Be honest: is SCing on a long trip annoying?

    The thing with charging - you plug in, then you walk away and not worry about it. With gassing up - you have to stand there, breathing the fumes, sometimes freezing, sometimes hot, so even without the lineups it's annoying. This for the trips - for standard days, plug in at home, not have to...

    Still Waiting for Elon's Blog Post on Autopilot Update...

    I don't know how you'd test which one is safer without endangering a lot of lives :), but I can see how a loud noise could startle you, have you grab a wheel and do something stupid. However, once you're stopped, perhaps starting the horn honking, akin to a car alarm, while flashing all four...

    Bolt EV EPA range = 238 miles combined!

    "Electronic Precision Shift" This means Bolt has a transmission with multiple gears? I'm sure it's written down somewhere else in the forum, but can somebody confirm this is the case? If not, what's it shifting?

    Bolt EV EPA range = 238 miles combined!

    "Regen on Demand (tm) Steering Wheel Paddle" This will probably appeal to non-Tesla drivers, as it's a natural continuation of what they're used to. Foot of the "gas", you coast, if you want to slow down with regen, you use the paddles. I imagine there will be some regen on the foot lift as...

    EM on Twitter: 'I think we will probably stop at 100 kWh on battery size'

    I have an 85kWh, but I could get away with a 40kWh for 90% of the time, could use a 60-70kWh for 9% of the time, and a 100kWh+ would come in handy that last 1% of the time. I'm sure ymmv, but if there was a way rent a 100kWh for a weekend/week, like the quick battery replacement, except in a...

    Tesla Vision ... The Next AP Hardware

    I didn't reach nearly the same conclusions as the rest on this thread. To me, all things put together: 1. Radar is going to do more. The camera is not doing any less. It isn't like they're switching to radar instead of the camera, or doing any less with the camera. 2. I see nothing in any of...

    EM on Twitter: 'I think we will probably stop at 100 kWh on battery size'

    Sure, at which point the first person that crashes their Model S 300D, because they drove for 16 hours straight, peed themselves and lost control of the car, is going to sue Tesla for enabling that much range. Since Tesla representative didn't come to their house (putting it in the manual and...

    Bolt EV EPA range = 238 miles combined!

    Even ignoring the SC network, didn't you just describe the ICE marketplace? BMW over Toyota is mostly about styling and badging, the rest of it is in the realm that most of us will never actually experience (skidpad numbers), and perhaps bragging rights. Once you have enough range, for your...

    Bolt EV EPA range = 238 miles combined!

    The most broken thing about GM statements and the way press is covering this is the "Bolt is the Tesla killer" part. Why would anybody want one EV that can replace an ICE car to kill another EV that can replace an ICE car, or even the whole company that makes only EVs? Who actually wins if...

    What they could do is have a "countdown" or "paying-attention-o-meter" type of display. Starts at 0, and if it detects you holding the wheel in a way it likes, it starts going positive, into green, and builds up a cushion. As you let go of the wheel (by the software's definition of "letting...

    Absolutely terrifying. Obviously, you haven't died, or killed anybody by doing this, so far, but, wow. I can't imagine which conditions these would be, outside of "my driveway at 5mph". Sorry for being off topic.
  46. Cebe

    Bolt EV EPA range = 238 miles combined!

    To be clear, this is longer range, but explicitly the "same" 60kWh battery? They didn't, for example, decide and figure out how to fit a 70kWh battery in the Bolt instead?

    The Car&Driver (or was it Road&Track) test quoted "4lb" whatever that means.

    Still Waiting for Elon's Blog Post on Autopilot Update...

    I've been using AP a lot, and there is no way I'm letting go of the steering wheel. For me, it's more comfortable than keeping my hands on my legs, and certainly more relaxing knowing that a bug won't cost me my car or my life.
