    Tesla will not Sell you vehicle without proof of residence in state where car is located.

    I've seen used Teslas with FSD enabled priced more than ten thousand below the new price. Year and Mileage lowered the value of the vehicle to begin with but I've literally seen FSD be only $1,000 more than EAP on a used Tesla. It doesn't always happen that way but when it does it's worth...

    Installing a level 3 charger at home

    To be clear it's 3 separate 25kw products (pick 1 power input type), you can't just buy a single product from that page that takes everything from single phase 240 to 3-phase 480.

    Installing a level 3 charger at home

    Yes, I would expect 3 phase L3 chargers in the US to accept 440 V minimum to 480 V max and expect 460 V nominal. I would not expect them to bother with 277V setups since those are so close to the 240V it wouldn't be worth the complexity for the tiny bump in voltage. 277V is useful for some...

    What percent of the year is it snowing, icy, slushy. That alone is more than 5% for some people. What happens then is the system states it is unable to engage, you have to drive yourself buddy. What percentage of the year is it raining at cyclone, hurricane, hailstorm, your wipers can't keep...

    His profile says he is in Atlanta but he didn't provide a state or zip or any specifics. Assuming that is Atlanta Georgia in the United States he most definitely doesn't have 400a 220v. He has 400a 240v. Still twice the amps of the main panel at my house. I'm charging on 32A out of 200A so if I...

    Live streaming from during the hijack wouldn't have much visual impact. It's just a view of the inside of the plain with a bunch of quiet people or a bunch of loud people. You'd need external video or cockpit video in addition or it's boring visually. I guess maybe a shot from a window seat...

    FWIW I never would have suggested Tesla or anyone ever buy bitcoin. But I'd totally suggest they accept it as a form of payment (because they could sell it for USD easily). Put a surcharge on it or post their own exchange rate (which has the same effect) much as Bitpay has their own exchange...

    Full results at TMC investor survey and I'd still say that the >75% text is inaccurate on the chart below. All it takes is having enough TSLA to be more than 3x your non TSLA, which isn't hard to do and still have a full life. For example a $500,000 home requires more than $1.5M in TSLA...
