    Blog Report: Tesla Has Refunded 23% of Model 3 Deposits

    A bit strange they only show numbers after May 2017. Why? Could it be because so many ordered the Tesla Model 3 in the year prior to that that these later numbers doesn't matter in comparison? Show us the numbers of May 2016 for scale!

    Model 3 Handover Event -- July 28, 2017

    Inside the NVIDIA PX2 board on my HW2 AP2.0 Model S (with Pics!)

    @kdday: do you have bought fully autonomous drive or just the enhanced autopilot? Because it could be different boards for those two with one or two GPU-s.

    Integrated solar roofs

    Batteries are not especially heavy. 1 kWh of batteries is enough to store a day's production of electricity from one m2 of solar panel. That is about 5 kg of added weight to a solar panel typically weighting about 15 kg/m2 already. Plus about 5 kg for the cooling. Results in 25 kg/m2 instead of...

    Integrated solar roofs

    What if we should read the master plan literally? "Create stunning solar roofs with seamlessly integrated battery storage" Imagine this: a solar panel with batteries attached to the back of it. Thus it can "provide power" even after sunset! Between the solar panel and the batteries coolant...

    Towing Capacity 5000 lbs, no mention of mileage

    In Europe, where we love towing stuff, Tesla has a different setup on (some of) their Superchargers: some do not require the driver to reverse into the charging spot, thus trailers can remain attached.

    Private Tesla Fastcharger? [Not quite a supercharger] This guy bought 2.

    Read more about the Karlskrona Fastcharger at Tesla Club Sweden: Google Översätt They are privately owned, but free access to all Tesla owners. They are limited to 60 kW due to simpler mains connection (100A 400V three-phase). The TCS article also describes how to order your own, they cost...

    ICEing at SCs and how to handle it

    We handled it in our own little way: We BEV-d a gas station :biggrin: Last Saturday suddenly a dozen electric cars -silently!- appeared out of nowhere and occupied all available pumps at a gas station in Stockholm, Sweden. Read the whole story at BEV-ing a gas station - Tesla Club Sweden

    Should EVs Make Artificial Sounds at Low Speeds?

    The Nissan LEAF emits such a noise. I have a LEAF and can testify that nobody NOBODY is alerted by it. People are not even alerted by gasoline engine noise any more - unless you step on the pedal so the motor revs up. Not being able to do so with the LEAF noisemaker renders it useless. Oh...

    Should EVs Make Artificial Sounds at Low Speeds?

    As a Leaf owner with an annoying artificial sound generator I can affirm you it does not help at all. People still can't hear you coming. They are used to move aside only if you roar your engine :-(

    Tesla Gigafactory

    SpaceX rocket landing pad! :D OK, serious now: if you are going to build a hundred wind towers it is easier on flat ground. Moving cranes and equipment around. You don't do it for one, but perhaps you do it for one hundred.

    Tesla Gigafactory

    One thing strikes me looking at the pictures: why ONE building instead of several ones? If say a fire starts in the factory isn't it easier to contain it if the factory is split up in say 8 large buildings, instead of one HUGE?

    New Gen-III Renderings Request -Theo Chin, Others?

    A bit confusion right now. According to Auto Express Elon Musk said "three bars", according to Tesla Motors tweet it will be "Model 3". Anyway, it was easier for me to horizontal flip the upper part of the "S" in MODEL S in the picture and thus create a "3" than make three bars.

    The Oatmeal's Description and Review of his Magical Space Car

    What questions should be asked during the Conference Call of ER Q1 on May 7th, 2014?

    I would like to know what has happened to the European Supercharger rollout? According to plan, around a hundred of them will be installed this year. But after a third of the year gone we still only have the same 14 of them we had at the beginning of this year :-(

    New model E, or 5yr old model S?

    If they cost the same I would definitely take the used S. At least the first year, until any issues with the Model E has been worked out. Aand apart from early issues, the Model E will have lower specs, both in handling and range.

    Tesla Model X camera like mirror on a Honda Accord??? (video)

    I don't know about rear-view mirror usage in the USA, but here in Europe you are thought in driving school to look at your rear view mirrors every 5 seconds. You can't rely on any switches then for the images to appear - they must be visible at all time.

    If you were a designer for competitor what would you do to combat Tesla?

    Sure, why not. No can do. Your customers are not the people buying the cars, but the resellers. And resellers WANT people to bring in their cars for expensive maintenance. No can do, for the same reason as above. Resellers WANT people to abandon perfectly working good cars just because they...

    New Seats and Retro Fit Seats - Does anyone know when?
