Issue 203 - Tired of tripping over the cable
Responding to a video from Munro & Associates talking about the plaid pack, Elon Musk mentioned that the Plaid pack was tough, but that the Model Y structural pack is next level. I can’t wait to see it analyzed when people get it.
Since the new Roadster was unveiled in 2017 it has created great expectations, even though at $250k it isn’t something that most people can afford, because of its role as a halo car. This week Tesla’s chief designer, Franz von Holzhausen, provided a small update about it, and he added “we have also been learning a lot like the Plaid is a great learning platform, that all those experiences will make its way back into a much better Roadster than had we launched right after when we debuted it. It will be an amazing, exciting flying machine.”
Model Y made in Giga Berlin
A recent picture of a car carrier full of Performance Model Ys leaving Giga Tesla, with 4680s, might be a sign that the first deliveries from it can be happening soon.
I love these videos that Tesla is releasing from their different factories. This week’s, Giga Berlin’s paint shop.
In November, Tesla started a pilot to allow non-Tesla EVs at the Superchargers. This week, Tesla expanded the program to all the Superchargers in the Netherlands. Great news for EVs in the area! If you are a Tesla owner in the Netherlands, I would love to hear from your experience as well.
Disclaimer: This video contains images of Teslas going through crash tests, watch it under your own responsibility 😉 Of course, this video compares a car that was designed 10 years ago vs. a newer one.
Really glad to see some of the features that went away with v11 slowly coming back 🙂
I love seeing people’s clever charging setups, thank you for sharing!
💡 Tip of the week
Blindspot camera: You can enable the blind spot camera by going into Controls > Autopilot and enabling the in that menu Blind Spot Camera. This feature is only available, at least for now, in the Model 3, Y, and refreshed S and X.
🤓 What the acronym?
As Tesla fan I find myself sometimes having to remember what are all those acronyms, here is a list of the ones you can find in this issue.
