    Rear Drive Motor Fault causing 12V Battery to discharge

    We got 2 Model Y LR AWDs in mid-December. This morning we went to open the door of one of them and nothing would happen. The app was perpetually trying to connect.

    My 2015 Model S 70D would overheat at superchargers(Heat levels would severely cripple acceleration/braking if supercharging for 45+ mins).

    P90D → P100D upgrade?

    Did anyone else with a 90D / P90D get an e-mail from Tesla a few months ago, shortly after the 100D was announced, offering an upgrade to their existing battery-pack and wiring for $US 20,000? I can't find the e-mail right now, and my local service centre is skeptical (they aren't aware of any...

    Could these be the 100D Specs?

    The chart below and attached is based on current Wikipedia info. The yellow column is an educated guess based primarily on current AWD Model S versions. Assumptions about the 100D: 1. It will use the same battery pack as the P100D 2. It will use the same motors and controllers as the 90D...

    Next generation 2170 cell battery packs

    Hear me out now. Apart from being cheaper to produce (/kWh) the new 2170 cells will allow for more capaciy in a given pack size. 40% more than the 2012 85kWh pack, according to JB Straubel. And that may well be without the extra utilization of 5mm head space through the longer cells. So, close...

    To Increase Range, Could Tesla Just Stack Battery Packs?

    Recently visited a Tesla store and saw the "simple" design of how the battery pack is the floor. With a flat design, couldn't Tesla just stack the battery packs to increase range and battery capacity? It seems like it would make sense, especially since everything above the undercarriage is just...

    Curious about Inconel as used in the new battery pack connector, I looked it up on Wikipedia, and found that SpaceX has expertise. Thought it is interesting.

    Titanium Full Battery Shield

    Brought my MS85 today to diagnose a center screen issue and the techs offered me to (optionally) install a shield (titanium-aluminum) specially designed to further protect the lithium battery pack and other critical areas. They have in stock, so I said yes. It will take close to an hour to...
