    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    I think you missed at least one important thing: for those of us in cold climates not having the defrost easily and visually accessible is a safety issue. Stupid update by non-drivers in California who don't understand a real use-case.

    Problems with new Tesla in the Snow

    Thanks for the insight. I guess my frustration at this stage--4 weeks in--is that I have to do math to figure out how far I'm actually going to get. I don't really even know how to convert kW too kms. Anyway, we're getting used to it ... and the snow has just arrived. Now I really need to deal...

    UK to France road trip - how accurate is the ETA?

    I'm not in the UK or France, but the times don't pass the sniff test. Google Maps says Leeds to Dover is 5 hrs, and Calais to Strasbourg is also 5 hrs. Add in your 5 hrs of charging (10X30 mins) and you have a couple of days of driving. My experience driving in both UK and France, is that...

    Problems with new Tesla in the Snow

    I haven't had the window problem, but today, after the big snow last night, I did pre-heat the car, so that probably accounts for that.

    Problems with new Tesla in the Snow

    Adding one more concern: range loss. I drove 200 kms on Saturday and my range dropped from 340 to 60, meaning a 30% loss of range--and it was only 0 C. Then today, my wife drove 160 kms, and the range dropped from 320 to 38 kms, in -5 C. This 30-40% loss at only freezing temperatures has me...

    Problems with new Tesla in the Snow

    I wouldn't even call it cold yet. This is just winter's first little flurry. I know people drive them in really cold places like Edmonton and Montreal, so I sure hope there are ways to resolve some of these.

    Problems with new Tesla in the Snow

    I've had my Tesla for three days, and I'm experiencing some frustrations. I'm hoping the forum can help: Wipers--we're getting our first snowfall and already the OEM wipers suck. They can't clear anything. I did look on the forum and see a few suggestions for alternatives: Bosch PUV and Trico...

    Chuck Schumer: A Bold Plan for Clean Cars

    When ICE vehicles and EVs reach price parity, the bottom is going to fall out of the ICE market. The oil co's and the traditional car makers dread this moment, and are working to actively delay it. Here's an interesting read (although I can't vouch for the quality of the conclusions, just don't...
