    Best Comments on EV Stories

    My god those comments are purified ignorance. Oh and just for the record, I got a Bosch electric lawnmower (did a little review on goingelectric.de years ago). It has more power than any gasoline mower. Granted, it's a lot pricier but it's built like a tank and cuts even the thickest grass with...

    2020.16 rolling

    1) I am not in the UK 2) I am talking about the Model 3 3) This is a well known issue with HW 2.5 Model 3. Glad you don't have it. Don't extrapolate from your Model S to Model 3. I know enough Model 3 owners with this issue to know it's not just my car, or my storage medium. I am now using a...

    2020.16 rolling

    So you have no recordings that are garbled? No files that are 0 bytes in size? I've been using everything from SSDs to USB sticks and SD cards. I've tried about 50 different types and brands, and they all behave the same and I know it's the Model 3 basically hosing the filesystem, it's not the...

    2020.16 rolling

    Just checked, nope, still borked. I tried ext4 and ext3. fat32 still works, but with the known issues (filesystem goes kaput after a few weeks). And yes, I chowned the directory to 1984 and also tried chmod 777 and all that. Also, the "format USB" button never turned solid for me.

    Model 3 got sideswiped, third party repair experiences

    They still need to do a bit of polishing of the clear coat, they just want to wait a few days for that. I'd say the Tesla-approved body shop in Vienna is a lot more professional and knows EVs. This guy, not so much. I had to call him to plug in the car since it went down to 9% battery. But I...

    Model 3 got sideswiped, third party repair experiences

    After almost exactly one year of driving my 3, it finally hit me. Well another car did. The other driver changed lanes without indicating and caused quite some damage, including shearing off the left front tire valve. front and back left doors badly damaged, driver door would not fully open...

    I traded my Tesla for a Lexus

    That is why no cheating was required to pass the emissions tests, right?

    I traded my Tesla for a Lexus

    You have a choice. Don't elevate "I only care about my cabin noise" over real and hard consequences for others. Yes, you're not the only factor, but if you can afford the option and you chose an ICE you chose to add to the direct health issues of others. I had no choice. There was no EV...

    I traded my Tesla for a Lexus

    Sure, the cabin is quiet and not smelly. The smartest invention for the gas car was to put the tailpipe all the way to the rear...

    Tesla chose to do what it does best: half-ass it

    I love it when people hit the "disagree" link but do not post at all. It is flaccid opposition without substance. And foolish in this case too, because I read this as you preferring Tesla to stop all deliveries even for customers who do not benefit from HW3 at all. The only reason why anyone...

    Tesla is once again not selling parts for salvage vehicles.

    That's completely ridiculous and warrants a twitter shipstorm until they make it right. It's absolutely NOT their mission to produce throwaway cars, so maintaining vehicles that work should make sense to them. Sure, lock out cars that were officially totaled from SC for safety reasons if you...

    Tesla chose to do what it does best: half-ass it

    It's still BS. Suspending production is only the right thing to do if you're zerohedge and shorting TSLA. If I was waiting for a new Model 3, and Tesla told me I'd get HW3 later due to logistics issues, I wouldn't have much of an issue with that. I'd be more angry if I had to wait for several...

    Tesla chose to do what it does best: half-ass it

    This is a Zerohedge article. According to them and SA, Tesla is shifting inventory cars from lot to lot to create the appearance of deliveries since there is no demand. So, yeah... You trust them why again?

    Tesla makes electricians see $$

    Over here in Austria it was even more drastic: I asked if I can get a wallbox installed in my garage. The electrician told me that he'd have to ask the utility if that's permitted, I'd probably need to ask my town for a permit and whatnot, and that there's probably no way to legally do this...

    Voice not working

    I wonder how many people are affected by this. I tried completely turning off the car tonight, but there's been no improvement. The workaround via the keyboard voice input still works, but yeah, it would be nice if that wasn't neccessary.

    Any other large drivers have problems getting into Model 3?

    6 foot 6 here. No problem. I get in butt first. Seat all the way back. Car is comfy to ride, but I do have to have the seat back.

    It's the Verge. Nobody takes them seriously after they showed everyone how to (not) build a PC.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    They have been singing this song for every positive quarter. And then, nothing. You call it delaying, I call it attempts at mood-setting. The proof of the great Tesla fraud is always just around the corner. Much like hydrogen.

    All engineering topics (out of main)

    That is not the case. You can freeze batteries and store them. Jeff Dahn confirmed this too in his battery talk. As for voltage, as long as it's not too low it's fine. Also, below 4V per cell if possible. What you are thinking of is heat which promotes metallization of lithium, especially when...

    Got to test drive the Taycan Turbo

    You are on a Tesla forum. You're bound to get some reactions. And from what I can tell, you got mostly congratulations. Can we agree that the Taycan may just be more fun to drive for you, and not try to attempt to go down to things like "X is a driver's car while Y is not a driver's car"? What...

    Got to test drive the Taycan Turbo

    If you enjoy the Taycan and can afford it, get it. It's probably the best product Porsche sells and despite worse price/performance ratio, it's still a better deal compared to their ICE offerings. But don't post stuff like the S being "not a drivers car". You are getting into blind fanboy...

    How much electricity does it take to produce a gallon/liter of gas/diesel?

    How about everyone do what they can and leave it at that? As for the original topic, OMV Vienna quoted around 1.4kWh per liter of gasoline, but that also covers the other side products. That is the grid usage, they have a very beefy grid connection. So that number gives you gasoline as well...

    This is like that xkcd comic about "Up-Goer Five" (Up Goer Five) except this is not meant ironically and the writers at BI are apparently actually on that mental level. Would explain their other coverage.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Orders of magnitude off. The puddle lights and dash electronics will never add up to this many kilowatts. If anything, Tesla most likely has the more power hungry computer on board, and they STILL manage to be more efficient overall. My guess is that the cooling/heating system does take a lot of...

    Dana was trolling, plain and simple. But of course she will claim that she is doing her journalistic duty. I would love for her to answer if she has any connection to Plainsite the public should know about. You know, just in case a securities investigation rolls around later. One never knows...

    "New battery design can charge an electric car in 10 minutes"

    @jebinc Yes and no. Buying the FSD package is essentially preordering software. It will not be "fully self driving" for a considerable time, much less without supervision. To that end, the nomenclature is misleading. Was "Autopilot" misleading? No, and people who claim this have no experience...

    "New battery design can charge an electric car in 10 minutes"

    No slight against you was intended, and no need to delete anything. It is purely a problem with the companies making such announcements. I was excited the first few times too, and they count on that excitement.

    "New battery design can charge an electric car in 10 minutes"

    Wake me when I can get a sample to test. Before then, this does not exist. Just like the other 100 "breakthroughs" that were claimed in the past 5 years.

    Is Autopilot Making other Drivers Angry?

    He was driving like a maniac before too. Please tell me you reported him. I had other drivers flash and honk at me before with head shaking. I don't think they understand what is going on really. To be clear i have a hand on the wheel but down low.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I can't wait for the shorts telling everyone again how there is no demand, while simultaneously claiming that production is lagging. I noticed that the TeslaCharts twitter account tried to get Elon to respond to the HK situation. Getting Tesla on the bad side of China would be a great benefit...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    They are in shock at the PlainSite connection being in the spotlight now, and busy doxxing and harassing tesla owners on twitter while claiming that they are being doxxed and harassed. I don't know how linking to SEC rulings about their illegal activities constitutes harassment, but I am not a...

    Door seal issues?

    They simply need to replace that seal. If it is applied while stretched, or the surface isn't completely clean, it'll come off.

    V.10 in Europe !

    Yup, also got the 2019.32.11.1 update today in Austria. SmartSummon is awaiting regulatory approval. And it'll probably be castrated similarly to NOA.
