I'm halfway through it ... fascinating.. you have to hang in there but it gives some insights into how cutting edge the Tesla "project" really is.
One interesting tidbit from the interview is that Elon said that the new Model S and Model X cars will now come with a Li-Ion 12v battery that is expected to last as long as the main battery pack! No more needing to replace the 12v battery!
Elon was quite moderate (kind) with his pointing out that Sandy was off the mark with his speculation about the presumed huge number of lines of code involved in the newest FSD beta. i.e. Elon stated that having the largest number of lines was not an appropriate metric to rate impressively good coding! 2 points scored for removing a line of code and 1 point for adding another line of code was how he put it.
I didn't get why Sandy was so strong on blaming the people responsible for inconsistent road markings for making the job of FSD too difficult. There's no hope that we can all depend on people painting the white lines properly 100%. Elon very sensibly explained that FSD had to work reliably and without harming anybody whether the lines were right or not!
pls do give spoilers. a summary would be great.
the first few minutes were Sandy saying some cars were great some had problems and what is the inconsistency? Elon truthfully said the best cars are first ones in low volume, or after the line is up to speed,but the ramping of the line is where the problems come in.
I had to stop after that.
If I were sandy I would have asked about the PDI process..
Looove Sandy Munro’s analyses in general, but it’s clear being an interviewer he’s a bit out of his element
