VETOL. The best tire is no tire.Acoustic foam and low rolling resistance are incremental improvements, but I would love to see Tesla or somebody else to address the list of challenges listed above from a first principles standpoint.
These guys operate in my area. I need a new roof but can't justify the cost compared to my home value. I need to upgrade to my Teslanaire home before that becomes reasonable.Tesla roof installed in one day:
Tesla will make a lot of money on this and make a lot of people very happy.
Macros good, Tesla down. Any specific reason? Also, very low volume today.
The GA EV tax is a flat tax and because you drive far more miles than the typical driver it works out for you.Gas tax is where the majority of the road works $$$ comes from the GA. I am okay with it as the EV tax is far FAR less than gas tax I used to pay based on my daily commute ~100 miles a day.
That can't be Tesla. They talk about Manz welding the cells into modules but Tesla is moving away from modules to the structural pack.
Could be Rivian or Lucid, maybe Lordstown?
Manz sets itself apart from its competitors with a laser process for welding round cells into modules. According to CEO Martin Drasch, the customer relies on Manz’s BLS 500 laser platform and LightAssembly modular assembly platform.
During the event, Drew Baglino, Tesla’s vice president for powertrain and energy, offered more insight into the new cells. He said that Tesla’s engineers “laser patterned” the existing foils in the cell to create a “shingled spiral” that results in a shorter electrical path length of 50 mm, versus the existing 250 mm length in the current cells.

I fail to see how either Tesla or Mobileye camera suite can see far enough down the road at a T intersection to safely make a left turn. You come up to a stop sign on a rural road, you stop, you look WAY down the road to see if some maniac is coming and then quickly make your turn. The camera ranges shown by Tesla and Mobileye do not make me confident they can make this turn safely. I'm sorry. If I am missing something, it's because they have not shown me why they can handle this situation.
Go back to drinking beer your brain cells our being depleted of it's necessary nourishment or is it the other way aroundYes indeed. We discussed it in quite some detail back in the day (a couple of years, I think), when Fact Checking (=Truth Tesla) was a regular here. I had totally forgotten about it, but has been known for a long time
And with all the toll roads, there's not that much difference between gas and electric in the first place.If that is your metric for taxation, then why doesn't the gas tax include extra taxes to fund chemotherapy, asthma and COPD treatments, doctor visits for headaches, sleeplessness, and other proven ailments and deaths caused by breathing road fumes? It doesn't stop there because we have global warming induced sea-level rise, loss of property value, increased storm damage, higher air-conditioning bills, and on and on. Limiting the gas to tax to only pay for road maintenance is irrational in the extreme. If the true property and health costs of ICE vehicles were included in the gas tax, I estimate gas would cost $10/gallon.
If gas taxes are not raised to reflect these things than EV's should at least be free of road taxes!
