Lots of great info from JB Staubel on Tesla's perspectives on transport. EV Annex blog post: Tesla Co-Founder JB Straubel hints at forthcoming autonomous driving and battery breakthroughs [Video] Video on Youtube: Some interesting takeaways, in addition to stuff we mostly already know... Things Tesla examined and likely won't come about that we thought might: 1) Vehicle to grid - seems unlikely from their perspective 2) Re-use of vehicle batteries in stationary storage - also seems unlikely Both of these have a myriad of technical and economic issues that make them unlikely. Which then we have to look at Nissan and say, hmmm... someone is right, someone is wrong. I would hazard that Tesla is right and Nissan is wrong. State of Model 3 1) They have talked to key suppliers already 2) From those talks, they believe they can double production from original targets 3) As a result, recent press reports about "supplier doubts" are smoke, not Tesla's suppliers which we suspected State of Regulations and Standards 1) Needs work 2) Needs work 3) Charging standards need to accommodate future needs (duh) Obviously, we already know the major points... electric mobility is coming due to technology changes, climate is driving the overall issue, and automated driving is also coming and is coming faster.
