    Model Y won’t charge on supercharger

    On a road trip from Austin to Houston, I learned my Tesla Model Y would not charge at a supercharger, bad timing! I was able to get it into a service center but they weren’t able to fix it in time, so I had to leave it in Houston and will need to make the trip back once it’s fixed (6 hour...

    First road trip model 3 long range

    Figured this would be a fun thread. We’re taking our first road trip in the M3LR, driving down to Disney from PA, so far so good. Using the FSD beta most of the way, so far no major hiccups with it driving. A few construction areas I felt more comfortable driving myself over using the FSD due...

    Portable Generator Recommendations for Road Trip from California to Alaska

    Hi All, I know there have been a few folks who've made the trip from the lower 48 to Alaska, so I'm looking for some advice. Based on my research, the folks who did it previously relied on RV sites or welding shops to charge their car, but I was thinking something different. I was thinking of...

    First Long Trip in MYP

    So, as a relative newbie to the EV word, but certainly not automotive, I must admit that even I had some concerns about long trip in a pure EV. Sure, I had the BMW i8 but I could always stop to get fuel but you hear the mostly unfounded "range axnxiety" concerns mostly from non-owners. Well, I...

    Trip LA <-> Yosemite

    Hi everyone! I have Model 3 SR+ and thinking of taking a four days trip to Yosemite. Looking at the Supercharger map makes me worry if I will be able to feel comfortable and enjoy a trip rather than counting miles and constantly adjusting route to the charging needs. Has anyone had experience in...

    I have a model s 90D, looking to go on a road trip from the Silicon Valley. Any one tried the Yellowstone route via Sacramento? Then going back to around Utah, passing by Vegas? What are good sites? Best superchargers? hotels? Charging destinations? Appreciate your advice.

    Model S roadtrip: From Germany to Israel and Jordan

    I made a list of all the EV charging providers in Europe

    As Tesla owners, we are spoiled with SuC network throughout Europe in the most popular areas. Sadly, the buildout of SuC is East- and Southern Europe is taking its sweet time, and as such - we have to resort to other providers. I am heading on a 5 week drive down Europe in my Model 3 LR/AWD...

    Road trip video: taking the Tesla dashcam business international

    While I was somewhat worried about Tesla's own dashcam feature, when it turned out to be pretty lame in feature-richness (but good video quality), and the fact that the feature is only for HW2.5+ cars :-(, I don't see the dashcam business collapsing anytime soon :). Proof of that was when a...

    Road trip to the UK: driving on the wrong side of the road

    This week I had to go to the UK office for work. Usually, I go by train. But this time I felt like driving. Also, because my wife wants to go road tripping through Scotland, I wanted to see how comfortable I feel with driving "on the wrong side of the road". Along the way I ran into trouble...
