Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

Yes, and you can download the up to date version of the Manual from the Phone App so you always have it handy or can look at it on a more convenient screen, like your iPad. And no, other than...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

This is spectacularly good, and spectacularly frightening— unlike Tesla, Toyota does have a PR department and are not in the habit of insulting politicians on a near daily basis. They still got stuck...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

The vast majority of accidents happen in cars where ďauto featuresĒ donít exist. The features are gas pedal, brakes and steering wheel. The drivers are drunk or not, falling asleep or not, texting...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

I saw a different Out of Spec video where they had a "race" (Colorado to Vegas) between a Porsche Taycan EV, a Hyundai IONIQ 5 EV, a Ford Mustang Mach-E and a couple of Teslas. The Porsche actually...

I wouldn’t because I already own a Tesla Model Y. But if in 2020 I could have chosen between a VW Bug and a Model Y with identical specs (obviously the bug would have a lot less storage, but range,...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

Very happy to hear the lack of dealers, but that Scoutís looks donít appeal to me. Dear VW, is reviving the 2019 VW Bug as an EV really asking too much? Iíll settle for the 1970s Bug as an EV. I just...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

Ford, like Tesla, does not have a demand problem - they have a supply problem. They don't need to promote it in Texas, if they can't fulfill their existing F-150 Lightning orders.

Tesla did have two way charger on the original Roadster, and apparently no one was using it. But I do hope they try it again. Iíll grant you solar roofs and wall batteries do have an advantageó you...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

There is no conspiracy, but there is very simple reality ó Tesla does not buy advertising or give out freebies. Toyota and all other legacy companies do. CNET and everyone else knows where the...

This argument is absurd. I point out to you that Apple gives free iOS/macOS updates for its devices orders of magnitude longer than anyone else and that Tesla will be the same way, only longer, and...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

The problem I'm afraid of isn't Tesla charging for software updates, it is how long the *hardware* will be supported.

The plus side from Apple & the iPhone (etc) is that they keep providing free...

The "don't even answer the phone" is stupid. Tesla has taken all kinds of tips from Apple, they really should imitate Apple Care. Apple, with its billion users, still does answer the phone. Plus,...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

Totally agree. As I said in my post, the legacy companies just need two things -- a sufficient amount of batteries and direct sales. AFAIK Ford has talked the talk -- they talked about the Ford...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

We have not gotten to the point where many Tesla batteries need to be replaced, so getting a price estimate is hard. Also, Tesla gives you "8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first, with...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

For Ford to succeed, they just need to concentrate on two things: batteries and direct sales. They are definitely going to sell F-150s & SUVs to their existing customers (which, after all, are far...

My point isnít that chip shortages donít exist, my point is that Ford was free to make a choice: more ICE cars or more Mach-E and they chose more ICE. My question is why is that choice being made?
