Last Friday - October 25 - Tesla presented the third version of its solar roof. Kyle Field did this nice write-up about it, here are my highlights:
The price of the Solar Glass Roof is less than a new roof plus solar panels. It doesn’t make sense to get it if you don’t need a new roof but if you do, consider this option
With this version, Tesla has dramatically reduced the number of parts and sub-assemblies by more than half
Power output and weatherization are covered for 25 years
Tesla has two teams competing with each other trying to find the best possible way of installing it. Elon was saying that Tesla is targeting to lower the installation time to eight hours, imagine leaving in the morning and coming back from work to a brand new Solar Glass Roof
As simple as that, Elon posted it on Twitter. He also clarified that Tesla doesn’t make a lot of money from that product so $1,000 means a lot for the company. Honestly, thanks to Tesla and thanks to Elon, you are amazing!
Vanessa decided to try out Amazon Echo Auto. Amazon Echo Auto is the incarnation of their smart assistant - Alexa - in your car. To demo it, she picked a few useful skills and designed a useful routine as well. Watch the video and subscribe to our channel if you haven’t done it yet.
This route is key for folks wanting to go across Canada. According to u/ElonMousk many stations either have pedestals in the ground or are fully assembled but just not online. This route looks to be 70-85% done!
