    Model 6, Six Seater - long trips and 2nd row comfort

    What I hope that Tesla can fix is the lack of recline for the 2nd row, compared to other captains chairs sold by luxury brands there isnt enough recline and it makes sleeping uncomfortable especially when combined with the lack of armrests.

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    Curious to know if Model X will get Plaid+ battery and range increase. Also wondering if headlights got upgraded. Pictures show venting for 2nd row but it's not advertised, were there any other changes to seats? Also fog lights have disappeared as well as any mention of bioweapon defense mode...

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    Interesting update, would like to test drive before making up my mind on the stalkless wheel and if there were any improvements to the 2nd and 3rd row seats. Would like to know if the lights were updated, also is bioweapon defense mode gone? Also why not have every row get vented seats? Will...

    Double Paned Windows on Model X

    I've been having similar thoughts, with the Model Y rumored to get air suspension,heated steering & bio-weapon defense mode there is less reason to get an X, the increased luxury features can't be justified for the price difference. Hopefully Tesla also refresh the Model X and increase its...

    Model X Plaid

    I imagine there must be as Model S/X currently share a production line, it seems to be in Tesla's best interest to consolidate platforms as the Plaid S transitions to 4680 battery and new platform and also update the vehicles to keep them competitive. Competition from Lucid,Mercedes (EQS SUV)...

    2021 Model 3 Official

    Any updates on the headlights and taillight changing, that was rumored to change. I wonder if tesla also added sound insulation along with the double pane glass.

    Porsche Taycan

    I don't think the Model S was in cheetah mode as front end wasn't lowered, which would have at least made a difference for the drag races. See dragtimes for more accurate results.

    2020 Model X LR+ cabin noise

    It would be interesting to see how the EQC achieved such a significant improvement in noise vs the model x based on bjorns results.

    Lucid Air Will Be Better Than Model S, Says Former Tesla Engineer

    September is shaping up to be an eventful month, with Lucida unveiling on the 9th and Tesla having battery day on the 15th it will be interesting to see if Tesla unveils an updated Model S that is competitive with Lucids specs. I saw the teaser mentioned 442 miles of range which beats the...

    The shudder problem: Current status (end of February 2020)

    I think more effective route is to bring this to attention of regulators or media outlets like consumer reports who focus on safety, I am concerned about long term affects and the chances for sudden complete failure. Would love to know what other think consequences could be.

    The shudder problem: Current status (end of February 2020)

    Very upset to hear this is now Tesla's position especially after promising a fix was in the works for so long. There needs to be pressure on Tesla in some form: class action,recall, media attention or a commitment to fix this for the life of the car. It's even worse when considering that the...

    Should I pay for warranty repair?

    My service centre said they won't do it now as they are still working on a permanent fix for the problem, it was noted in my account and would be fixed outside of warranty if that's when fix is released. Did SC give you any other alternatives? I'd escalate if that's only solution, this is a...

    Sentry mode and 'low' battery

    I think the next improvement should be that sentry should automatically be re-enabled when plugged into a charger, especially superchargers. I arrived with about 15% at Mississauga supercharger & got a notice a few minutes later that charging was interrupted, realized that sentry Mode wasn't...

    Previous X owners who upgraded to Raven Model X, are you still getting acceleration shudder?

    It's been discussed in the post " Raven 2019.40.50.1 Adaptive Suspension update". I agree that the results should be more widely known, for example: In it's review of the Audi E-Tron, Consumer Reports stated the e-tron has the best ride in its class, I didn't agree with this after my initial...

    Raven 2019.40.50.1 Adaptive Suspension update

    I've been extremely pleased with this update. Having driven numerous ICE SUVs before our purchase, I had felt the ride on the X was not as supple as some competitors such as the Range Rover. It was the only noticable compromise I felt I had to make to buy a Tesla. My congratulations to the team...

    Previous X owners who upgraded to Raven Model X, are you still getting acceleration shudder?

    Took delivery of my Raven X LR in October. Just noticed shudder today, only during full pedal acceleration at around 40 mph, tried this repeatedly and the shudder happened everytime. Have booked a service appointment, hopefully we can get this resolved. This wasn't happening before. Car has...

    End Of 3rd Quarter Deal

    My custom order Model X is supposed to come end of the month, I called in during the promotional period and was told I would get paint upgrade fee waived and it was noted and updated on my order. Now they have backtracked and said that can't happen. Anyone who ordered custom have any luck...

    Porsche Mission E

    Have you tried the Raven upgrade to see how the new suspension performs?

    Porsche Mission E

    As both vehicles have different range, instead of comparing time needed to reach a percentage (ie 5-80%), the more fair comparison should be how much time to add X amount of miles for both vehicles, that would give a better idea of real life use cases.

    Porsche Mission E

    This pricing makes me wonder if Tesla made a mistake in not updating Model S and keeping the high price or introducing a more expensive higher performance version that fixed some of the performance & battery issues Porsche is emphasizing for differentiation at the 180k price point and made huge...

    Will Model X be tested by IIHS?

    The E-Tron was just recently released and just became a Top Safety Pick+ award winner. In light of the Model X being on the market for longer and being sold in more volume why has it not been tested? Perhaps Tesla feels that it won't do well on the test seeing as the Model S tested poorly for...

    Audi etron in person, disappointing?

    I did a test drive of the E-Tron over the weekend and was very disappointed. Ride quality felt worse than the Model X Raven, the vehicle felt stiffer perhaps because of the shorter wheelbase. In addition, the acceleration was not sufficient, the vehicle felt uncomfortably slow and it did not...

    Mercedes Debuts EQC Electric Crossover

    Yes absolutely. This is based on GLC platform and is priced to compete against the model Y. If mb made an ev with an interior similar to the new mb g series that would raise the bar, it looks and feels beautiful. I would love for Elon to benchmark that for the x interior refresh.

    Mercedes Debuts EQC Electric Crossover

    The E-Tron was roped off but fully open upon request at the Canadian International Auto Show earlier this year, after spending some time thoroughly examining the vehicle I was impressed, the interior seemed a generation ahead of the q7 and more similar to the q8 and looked and felt beautiful...

    Mercedes Debuts EQC Electric Crossover

    Tbh I'm not impressed with the interior quality when compared to model x, I found e-tron interior quality and ambiance to be the best when compared to this and the i-pace. I found the new MBE to be disappointing when compared to the X5 and range rover/cayenne. Elon has always encouraged and...

    Model 3 Canada

    Forgot to mention he also said dual motor will also come with the smart air suspension, wasn't clear on if it would be mandatory but seeing ashow Tesla is looking to increase margins and simplify production I think its a safe bet that it will be bundled.

    Model 3 Canada

    I just spoke to a gentleman working for the Tesla Sales office in California after I sent an inquiry regarding the heated rear seats and steering wheel on the Tesla website. He insists that all premium package Model 3 with subzero package will get the heated rear seats and steering wheel.

    Model 3 Canada

    It appears Canadian deliveries will coincide with launch of awd, thoughts on if that will also mean heated steering wheel option is coming. I know its a different wheel than in the current model s/x but I think its a useful feature, and most of its competitors and even cheaper evs like the leaf...

    My 2 day old P85D suddenly died in the middle of an intersection

    Osama, thanks for the update. Glad things worked out to your satisfaction. You mentioned that you are looking at the Cayenne as a replacement, did you consider the plug in hybrid model they offer? It would give your wife some electric range , the HOV Green Plate and also qualify for a partial...
