Issue 218 - 400,000 km and still has 90 percent of its range
Here is a detailed guide about how the Safety Score works. Take a look if you are trying to get the FSD Beta or to obtain a cheaper quote from Tesla Insurance.
We talked about this a few weeks ago, but Tesla just confirmed it on Twitter. The navigation system is now predicting crosswind, headwind, humidity, and temperature for calculating energy consumption and battery percentage on arrival.
We just highlighted the better navigation energy prediction above. On top of that, Tesla is bringing driver profile improvements and new driving visualization (A.K.A. FSD Beta visualizations) to 2022.16.0.2.
It’s well known that the quality of audio over Bluetooth isn’t the best. The Twitter user @ShibaDoge asked Elon about alternatives, like Airplay, and Elon said he will discuss it with the team.
That would be cool! And Elon said “sure” to this idea on Twitter.
This 2017 Model S 100D owner has put 400,00 km (~250k miles) to their Tesla and still kept 90% of its range. The car is used as a taxi and is supercharged between 3 to 5 times a day. Impressive!
This new 9,000 ton Giga Press (video in the post linked from the article) is for the body of the Cybertruck. Massive machine!
The new Model S and X don’t come with a stalk to select gears, instead, they come with what Tesla calls a “smart shift”. This system tries to understand your car’s surroundings to pick the right gear for you, if the car is wrong you can override that using the center console. In the case the center console isn’t working correctly, there are other selectors that turn on under the wireless phone charging area, and in case those don’t turn on, you can activate them by briefly pressing both scroll wheels.
🤓 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.
- FSD - Full Self-Driving
- Km - Kilometers
