    Vendor Tesla Model S Battery Extended Service Plans from 057 Technology

    I would not be so sure about that Mike. I have noticed that I can see some users activity and on other users this activity is not visible and I am NOT a moderator nor do I have any special privileges on this forum. Must be a user setting some where.

    500 mile range? LOL

    The same people that think they can get a dual motor version for only 49,900. That's a good one too. :) Design Your Cybertruck | Tesla There is a reason that the specs are no longer listed on the Tesla web site. Good thing some people saved them so that we can compare to actual numbers some...

    Utah Tesla Owners

    Yeah I try not to read the comments for that reason. 😢 The thing that I noticed was that south eastern Utah was going to get a couple of locations. Monticello and Bluff. My guess is that you would need a CCS adapter, but I have one for my car. It seems like it should make travel in that area...

    tracking automaker nacs adoption in NA

    While I do agree that everyone has said 2025 is the year for changing over to NACS, I just do NOT understand why it is going to take 2 years to change the charge port ? Sure they have to write some software to go along with it so that they can do billing, but so what. They have all done this...

    Drove around the lot here today and still did not see any sign of construction yet. Maybe when they finish Richfield, they will ge busy on this one.

    What other conclusion could there be ? The place of business is empty and up for sale or lease. No one answers the phone or the emails or posts on TMC anymore. The LLC has been dissolved in North Carolina. Seems pretty obvious to me 057 technology is no more.

    A few out in Quartzite AZ at the big SpC... PICS..

    Did anyone else notice how tight the charge cord is stretched due to the poor placement of the charge port ? How many charge stations will be damaged the first year of CT production due to drivers backing up into them ?

    Ford Announcement appears to indicate Full access to Supercharger Network (including V2) as a part of an expanded NACS agreement

    While I share your skepticism over the V2 V3 restriction, there could be another explanation. It could be that Tesla just plans on building new V3 stations very close to the V2 stations that are heavily used. In Moab UT there is a new V3 station a couple of miles from the old V2 station. In...

    Choosing between two options when paying for charging?

    Most non Tesla fast charge stations have a card reader. If you have a CCS adapter you could use one of these stations and scan the company card. Just beware they are not as reliable as they should be. Not sure about Connecticut, but out west the third party charge stations are mostly Charge...

    Prediction, in Which Year Will New Electric Vehicle Sales Exceed 50% in the United States "Poll"

    Ford EV's biggest problem is that they have to compete against traditional Ford products. This statement is only half true. Look at the numbers the base F150 starts at 34,585. The 150 Lightning starts at 49,995, and that is one with range of only 240 miles. If you want one with 320 miles of...

    Tesla car design is on the wrong track?

    That Cybertruck is ugly as sin. When I saw that it also has a yoke and stalkless design well that was the end for me. I like driving Tesla vehicles, I really do. I have bought 4 of them over the years, two of them are in the garage right now and no gas guzzlers at this house. Also would...

    Tesla car design is on the wrong track?

    The yoke and stalkless design was and is a horrible design blunder. Have you noticed how sales numbers have gone down since they did this ? I have test driven the model S several times to see if I could just get used to it and the answer is hell no. Don't want any part of that mess.

    Not sure if I want to buy one these just yet. However I will say that I like the fact that Lucid does have a real gear shift lever and a real turn signal lever. Bonus is 410 miles of range.

    EPA is not good, we need a new standard.

    As others have stated the EPA numbers are not great, but still not as bad as WLTP that others use. I prefer a more consistent test like InsideEVs. What's The Real World Highway Range Of Today's Electric Cars? We Test To Find Out

    Stalk or no stalk argument settled

    In the past before the yoke stalkless design blunder, Tesla would have no problem clearing out ALL of the inventory on the lot at the end of each quarter. Now despite a recent 10,000 price cut the day right after quarter end and we still have a bunch of S and X still on the lot. The data is...

    Stalk or no stalk argument settled

    It's really very simple to decide. Go down to the local Tesla store and test drive the stalkless model S and then go test drive the model Y with stalks. For me the old style stalks are a clear winner. I would really like to have a car with 400 miles of range like the model S has. I also think...
