    Auto Lane Change on Japan highways

    I tried AutoPilot on Tomei and Kan-etsu. Autopilot works great. In fact well beyond my expectations. But the thin gray line for adjacent lines did not appear. Hence auto line change did not work. Autopilot setting for the auto line changes is enabled. Version 2018.32.4

    Dash and rearview cams

    Hi Guys, Anybody tried to install cams in your S or X in Tokyo or other cities for that matter too? I have been reading up on the subject in the overseas, primarily US forums. While it's possible I decide to DIY it would seem logical to check on the other options too. I am thinking about A119...

    テスラ名古屋がオープンしてから半年ほど経とうとしています。 名古屋にスーパーチャージャーが設置されるとの情報がありますが、いまだ正確な位置情報やオープン予定日は決まっていません。 また新東名の引佐IC豊田東IC間の高速道路扱いでなく、オートパイロットが制限されるのも地図データの更新が怠っているからと話題が出ています。 愛知県中心にテスラオーナーの情報交換の場をここに設置し、相互に便利に活用されればと思います。 特にディスティネーションチャージングがレストランや宿泊施設、長時間滞在施設に今後設置が進むことも協力しあいたと思います。...

    Model 3

    Hello all: Now that the Model 3 is in production, I thought it might be interesting to see what Japanese owners/reservation holders think. I ordered 3/31/16 (U.S. date) and see early 2019 for delivery of any model I order. Patience for us, I see, is necessary. The car looks great. Since I...

    Tesla and Japan

    Having read the article below, I'm wondering how sales are going for Tesla in Japan? Anybody got a clue - it's just out of curiosity to see how Tesla is perceived elsewhere (i.e. is it in the same realm as the Big 3, or do people see Tesla as being different or separate from the "traditional"...

    Charging in Tohoku

    I am thinking of replacing my getting-old Land Rover with new Tesla Model X. Although I am not sure whether it makes sense with my driving patterns. I drive mostly on weekends to go outside of Tokyo. About twice a month I drive to my house in Aizu Wakamatsu, which is 300km away. Obviously I...
