Weird, I don't see "Raven" listed anywhere
Placed an order yesterday and they told me it will take 4-6 weeks for delivery. I hope it’s sooner!
Raven is the “Tesla Internal Code Name” used by Tesla for this:
The Longest-Range Electric Vehicle Now Goes Even Farther
Weird the headline in this article today calls it “Model X Raven” all those with Ravens must feel so cool: Tesla Model X Raven makes quick work of Lamborghini Urus in quarter-mile race | TESLARATI
Can someone clarify, he keeps saying long range. I was told out of the 3 models available, Standard Range (255mi 4.6 0-60 / Long range (325mi 4.4 0-60) / (Performance 305mi 3.4 0-60) that only the performance model could get the ludicrous option making it 2.7. How is it possible he got the long range and also ludicrous mode? I’m confused
The performance could be called a "slightly less range than" long range, as it has the same longer range battery but has less actual range because it weighs more due to the larger rear motor. But because the performance model's battery is the long range as opposed to the (has fewer cells or is software locked) short range, most consider it a "long range" model as well.
I got my MX within 50 hours. There might be an inventory car which fits your order. Just ask the Tesla guy when it was manufactured and if anyone drove it and returned it.
Mine has the same ripple effect at the right upper corner of the passenger side windshield. I just let it go. Typically I don't look that direction.
Is anyone else finding that Sentry mode seems to be draining about 5 miles per night? I am sure it was more one night.
Thanks. Just wanted to make sure that I couldn’t have bought a long range and then added the ludicrous to get the 2.7 0-60. I woulda been a little pissed for them not being clear then lol.
That stinks. Hopefully it is something silly and easy like a loose antenna connection that came undone.
So.. yesterday we took her for a drive and magically the GPS is all better? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Hopefully it was just a brief miscalibration, and not a physical problem. We'll see.
Yes, Tesla did not rename the Model X or S "raven", that is the point I was trying to make sense people keep referring to their new X or S as a "Raven".
Easier and more specific than "refresh" (which refresh?)
I suppose we could have adopted the approach used when some other manufactures make big changes mid year and call them 2019.5 S and X.
Gotta identify the hardware you're working with somehow...
For the other 99% of us using "Raven" is much easier than trying to site all of the upgrades in detail every time when referring the RAVEN refresh model S & X.
Even the main stream media, if you consider Electrek main stream, uses Raven to refer to the new refreshed model:
First look at Tesla's new Raven Model S/X adaptive suspension - Electrek
This. Since Tesla did not change the model or trim names, 'Raven' is currently the simplest way to refer to the current-revision vehicles. Eventually I'm sure it'll fall out of use now that we're moving further from the point at which they were introduced (and where people were receiving both Raven and pre-Raven vehicles).
If that were all it was I would have let it go too. But these were right in my line of sight. As I think I said, even the Tesla service manager said it would make him sick looking through it. I'm sure any glass that large is subject to production variations. At least they replaced it without any question.
I took delivery of a LR X Raven FSD on 6/29. No defects other than FWD glass crack that was fixed prior to delivery. Great car. Lots of fun. Ordered on 6/14.
I guess i'm the unlucky one here so far, but list of issues since receiving a Raven refresh delivered in June 2019:
Steering Wheel Vibration issue: 2 Service Center visits - the last visit had a road force balance, resolves issue about 95% of the time, i've come to the conclusion that the wheels are not just not 'balanced round' and I don't want to buy new tires.
AC Compressor causes accelerator pedal to vibrate aggressively when fan speeds are between 9 to 11: Service center visit scheduled
On the AC issue, anyone else see this or reproduce? As a test, turn the AC on and either set it to LO or manually set the fan speed anywhere between 9 and 11 (to force the AC compressor to have to work hard). After a minute or so, you'll start to feel the accelerator pedal vibrate like it's going to pop off.
One more thing, make sure that the 'recirculating' air option is NOT on as that will alleviate pressure from the AC compressor and even though the fan speed is 9,10, or 11, the AC doesn't have to work that hard because it's not pulling in warm air from the outside that it has to cool. I verified that the vibrating stopped immediately when I switched recirculating ON and fan speeds were at 9, 10, or 11.
I have not noticed that on mine but will test when I have a chance. Only issue I've run into is the rubber seal in the falcon doors leaves a little to be desired when opening after it's been raining--drops some water into the 2nd row. Mobile service came out and adjusted it and said that if it continues to be a problem they'll replace the whole rubber piece at the service center for us.
