    Update: waitress told us that they get more business through the charger than they expected. Also picture from the other side. This is a new charger with all equipment in the open.

    Tesla Teams with Ruby Tuesday For Supercharger Installs

    Bangor, Maine at Ruby Tuesday. Our first SuC in a few thousand miles. We are towing our camping trailer across Canada and part of the US with an MX.Www.TeslaXCanada.com Awesome, one stall is perfect for trailer towing. Chargers are at the end of the parking lot, so unlikely to get ICEd.

    TeslaXCanada - One Wild Idea

    Yep. Kenora, about 1 week ago. Sadly the Sun Country charger at the Clarion does not work, and the new owners do not really care. I talked with the Sun Country technician and opened it up. Looks like the motherboard is broken. Nothing I could do. Thwre is a chance it gets realocated to the...

    Camping Trailer Selection for Model X

    We are in Sakatchewan flat now. Did some tests today in heavy rain with 20km/h headwind. We only had a short distance (120km) to travel so I could play around. Conditions: Headwind 20 km/h, gusting higher, heavy rain All test were done over 10km only. I ran Motion GPX to ensure we did not have...

    I measured about 250 pounds before loading. Most loading is behind the axle, so it shoud drop a little bit. Had no chance to check after loading.

    Camping Trailer Selection for Model X

    That is our trailer with the MX of Ed Heymann from Everett. He was so very kind to come up to Victoria and tow our trailer in the parade. We got our sig X only 2 weeks after the parade.

    List what you LIKE/DISLIKE about Model 3 Prototype - Please share your opinions

    Like: The looks, especially when side-by-side with the already gorgeous S. Dislike: The small trunk access. I want a hatchback - pleeeaaassseeee. Less futuristic dashboard. But I am sure that will change.

    Firmware 7.1

    We are on a long road trip in the US with our Canadian S85D. Will we be able to download the 7.1 upgrade through LTE/3G or only wifi? Will we get the notice while out of country with the car? Seen nothing yet.

    I was able to upgrade my regular reservation to Signature 17th November, but no sign of the link to configure yet. Delivery specialist in Fremont keeps telling me for the last 3 weeks that I will see it really soon.

    Model S Energy usage empty fully loaded car

    I think your comment is not quite fair and I find nothing frustrating about the prediction calculation. I use it all the time and it works great for me, but one has to understand what is happening. Most of the extra consumption on this trip is from the extra drag of the Thule box, which the car...

    Next Gen Seat Heaters - Worthless

    I just ran into the same issue today. While I would not call the Next Gen seat heaters worthless, I was a little disappointed today while driving my wife's car with temps in the low 30s. Car had been outside overnight, but pre-heated for 20 minutes. My car has First Gen seats. My wife's car has...

    Tow Mode adjust Trip Energy Prediction display/processing?

    That would be great. We are planning a long trip with our MX next summer. - - - Updated - - - Would also be great to have an option to display a backup camera of the trailer on the screen.

    I love the new front of the X. Finally The X is not trying to look like a gas car.

    Camping Trailer Selection for Model X

    Thank you all for adding to the wealth of information. I believe drag is the most important factor for good range. So any trailer that reduces the frontal area is a big help, since the drag coefficients are probably pretty much the same, even for the tear drop style ones. I definitly do not...

    Key Fob Design for Model X

    Yes you can set up many named drivers. Much better than the different fobs. My wife and I always have keys to both our S's in our pockets. Would be confusing to the car with cutom fobs.

    Towing Capacity Questions and probably an easy answer

    I think if Tesla would design the X to tow more, people would complain about the short range. They just can't win with today's batteries in this field against a V8 polluter. Thermal limitations probably also play into it. The Model S starts to cut back power when pushing it hard on a race track...

    A great article from Germany (in English) on the lack of interest by the German auto industry to build a real electric car like Tesla. http://www.roederhallo.de/2015/08/20/the-great-pretender/ The write up also references a TV program - in German language only.

    I took a neighbour for a spin in an ordinary 85D. Later he told me that he used to fly second seat in an F18. He said the first time I accelerated onto the freeway in a slight curve and floored it from maybe 15mph, he felt for the first time in a long time like pulling G's in a fighter plane...

    Delay in model X launch?

    I have heard from Tesla service in Canada that there will be no Model X delivered to customers in Canada this year. May or may not be true. I am waiting for my X and not expecting delivery before March 2016 for order #561 (Canadian).

    Started watching "Going RV" and now getting anxious and impatient :)

    We sold our E350 class C early this year, feeling very uncomfortable driving such a gas guzzler. I have been thinking about towing a camping trailer with the X too. However, we like to go from the PNW all the way to Florida in the winter. With a Model X and a trailer, that will still be a...

    We aren’t giving Tesla enough credit for how incredible the Model S is

    We also seem to forget that the Model S really is Tesla's first car. Then we go and compare the fit and finish with cars from other luxury car manufcaturers, like Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Porsche, etc. I do the same thing. All these manufacturers had many decades to perfect their production and...
