Issue 286 - Cybertruck graffiti wrap

Model Y

New Model Y RWD

Tesla just released a new RWD variant of their Model Y, this model has a range of 260 miles, and does 0-60 in 6.6. The prive is $43,990. If you were waiting to upgrade, and you don’t need more range, this seems like a great opportunity, specially considering the Model Y is probably the most practical of all Tesla vehicles. If you are considering purchasing a new vehicle and are in need of a referral code, you can use mine $500 off and 3 months of free FSD http://ts.la/ignacio9266

New Model Y launched in China

Well, I wouldn’t call it a new version, as the article states, because Tesla keeps adding and changing things constantly in their cars. This time they added ambient lighting, like in the new Model 3, and new 19-inch wheels. As with previous changes, it’s safe to bet that we’ll see these features in the USA not too far into the future.

Software Updates

Tesla 2023.38 Release Notes

Not much is in this release, but it’s interesting to point out that the car will display an icon if live location data is requested while you or someone else is in the car. This feature probably helps in some creepy cases where someone is using shared access to the app to track the driver.


Tesla Cybertruck UI

Video of the interior of the Cybertruck shows it’s interesting to see how Tesla has updated the UI of the car to match the car’s style. It looks good!

Tesla sends out Cybertruck Launch Team apparel

The distribution of ‘Cybertruck Launch Team’ apparel to Tesla employees hints that the first deliveries of the electric pickup truck may be imminent. While the company has not specified an exact delivery date, this move adds to growing signs that the launch could be just a few weeks away.

Will the window to the vault open?

In what appears to be an image from an old video, we can see the back window to the vault in the Cybertruck slightly opening. If this is true, the bed of the truck could receive HVAC from the car, which is good for air circulation or carrying larger objects.

Cybertruck graffiti wrap

New pictures of the Release Candidate, this time in Estero Beach Resort, Mexico. What do you think of this wrap?

🤓 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
  • FHVAC: Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning
  • FRWD: Rear Wheel Drive
  • FUI: User Interface
