    Jerome reassigned to customer-satisfaction role

    Bonnie i could not agree with you more. As the early adopters wane out and tesla become more mainstream the general absent minded consumer has a bucket list of questions that needs to be addressed with knowledgeable sales staff from tesla to ensure accurate information is disseminated The sales...

    How Tesla lost a brand advocate through poor recruiting practices

    I sympathize with his post simply because as much as Tesla is my favorite company in the world simply because i concluded that electric vehicles were the trajectory for future transportation some 11 years ago (there's a funny story about that :smile:) and i completely understand the pressure...

    The Tesla Van (albeit Tesla Service)

    I was saying the same exact thing, personally i would much have rather them use Mercedes Benzs clean diesel Sprinter Cargo vans not only are they better looking but also have better capacities on nearly every metric possible. In addition why not use vans from a company that "gave you some food...

    Changes To Model S battery pack after Gigafactory

    I initially thought along the same lines but knowing elons personality and missions of accelerating the worlds transition to electric vehicles it would be more than likely to say he will maximize the cost savings achieved by the gigafactory to enhance the user experience of all future users...

    How would YOU configure a Model S for the budget conscience?

    I think you have optimized value for price with your current config, I always recommend the Tech package to prospective model s owners simply because the wiring harness for the Autopilot with the 12 ultrasonic sensors is completely different and not able to be modded without spending half the...

    Stuck on top of a mountain... radio frequency issue? Car won't see the key..

    loud buzzing while supercharging, then white smoke in the cabin?

    Yeah definitely seems so, especially when he relied on the "Crutch-field technicians" for advice was his first mistake.....

    Superchargers at Service Centers?

    This idea is very unlikely. What many consumers don't know is that high voltage electricity is around our lives 24/7 we are just not accustomed to seeing it within your every day lives. Any local strip mall, College, Hospital,Supermarket, Restaurant,gym, auto Body shop/Maintenance repair...

    Tesla Model S UMC cut open and modified to J1772

    That actually brings me to a point in which i wanted to voice to tesla. Make their UMC With J1772 outlets Most electric vehicles, or extended range vehicles, chevy volt. nissan leaf, ford focus ev, and fiat ev., fit ev all have "chargers" included with them on 120volts and then to get a...

    Battery Technology Improvement Over Time

    You beat me to it:biggrin: , Initially once the secound delays was announced i was confindent that in part it was due to having a larger pack and cost production curves. In January Elon and straubel did a conference in norway Q and A style and Elon admitted that next year there will be a larger...

    Tesla Supercharger network

    It is a race that i am eagerly watching and astonished at just how fast the race is intensifying this year alone:rolleyes:. The pace in which the superchargers are being released is nothing short of .......astonishing , Most of the chargers have been released within the past two quarters and the...

    Another 12v battery bites the dust

    I am glad to hear that they are replacing them so expediently and taking proactive measures but i can't help but think that known more reliable suppliers would be a better solution such as. Lead acid batteries are not hard to make we have had them for a century and then some, AcDelco is just...

    Why more superchargers alone can't prevent overcrowding

    I was more concerned for someone going to intercity travel for example sanfran to Los angeles or nyc to lake placid routes in which although are not interstate still are large distances approx 5 hours or so. On the 1 percent of trips in which you exceed the range of your car the average...

    Why more superchargers alone can't prevent overcrowding

    The best solution in reality is to build out a network that is no more inconvenient than conventionally fueled vehicles. I like the analogy of expecting to drive at 65 mph in rush hour traffic its simply not possible. A reasonable expectational goal from tesla would be a wait no no longer than...

    Why more superchargers alone can't prevent overcrowding

    This issue has plagued my mind once production would be increased to 31,000 and on forward. What will be the saving grace in the availability of supercharger stalls (owners not waiting to charge) will be the number of sites that will be open on similar but diversified routes of travel, rather...

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    I Find it interesting that the Model s exhibits that style of behavior shutting off when both peddles are depressed. Wouldn't it be safe to say that a more conventional approach to this situation would be a regular audible warning as currently implemented without powering off the car? The...

    "Vehicle Systems Very Hot. Charge Speed Reduced"

    Asking Elon Questions

    You are sorta right. The reason why the roadster is not able to handle DC current is because it does not have a high amperage Dc bypass that would allow the the direct current to charge the batteries directly avoiding the on board charger. All the power imputed for the roadster goes through the...
