RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla unveils its new Full Self-Driving computer in detail: ‘objectively the best chip in the world’ So you go back to an article that is 9 months old, indicates that the vehicles are already built with it, roll eyes and comments, and did not acknowledge that Elon had indicated that everybody with this would be making money with their autonomous car today. So feel free to keep hyping Elon. I put my money in the competition and now have a Bolt EV. Ive been driving Chevys for many years now,but their one EV is pathetic compared to Tesla. Plus theres that huge Supercharger Network alowing one to drive coast to coast easy. No need for autonomous car imo Making 75$ / hr driving Tesla https://youtu.be/ui9Q-sqXhgg

RE: Another Tesla problem

A computer is NOT infallible...nor perfect... A sensor going bad or flaky will or can have the logger...log nothing wrong... For those who compare to an airliners autopilot...ask how many redundant systems and components a car has ? vs any airliner... Pressing on the brake pedal will stop Tesla and every other car too every time, asuming the brakes work. Computer aka AP can NOT overide brakes. Some dumbel obviously steped on go pedal instead of brake and blames the car. Tesla has log to prove exactly that. I noticed There are people who use left foot on brake and right on acelerator,sometimes at same time !!! easy to get confused in a hurry.

RE: Another Tesla problem

Will be interesting to see how "uncontrolled acceleration" works for towing with the pickups. Tesla An unidentified person petitioned the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration asking for an investigation into the problem. An agency document outlining the allegations shows 127 owner complaints to the government/QUOTE More FUD from Tesla shorters,maybe!? Lol

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

You seem to acknowledge that Tesla batteries work better but at the same time deny that there is any reason for them to. Either that or there is no reason, they just do so it must be magic. I don't understand your thought process. They work "better" because they are taking risks other manufacturers are not willing to take. Things like denser packs, less cooling, less physical protection, higher energy transfer rates. All the manufacturers are using one of two battery designs. There's ZERO battery advantage. Tesla is a new manufacturing company. Hasn't been hit with massive lawsuits or govt "intervention", yet. It's coming. They will play a little too fast and loose with safety or govt specs and get burned. They all have. Some learn from other's mistakes, some are destined to learn them on their own. I wouldnt worry, Tesla is still the safest EV out there https://www.businessinsider.com/why-tesla-model-3-received-5-star-crash-test-rating-2019-10 https://insideevs.com/news/363109/tesla-model-3-battery-fire-resistance/

RE: GM to introduce electric Hummer

Watching that referenced video, I get a kick out of certain medias making a big deal over the failure of Tesla's window when hit by the bowling ball. It broke but the bowling ball did not go through it. If you were sitting in a normal truck when that bowling ball hit, you'd be dead. Anyone woried about window breakage can simply stick on Safety film inside. Good idea to prevent break ins anyway.

RE: GM to introduce electric Hummer

Ads expected during Super Bowl. To compete with Cybertruck. https://www.zerohedge.com/technology/new-electric-hummer-makes-teslas-cybertruck-look-kids-tonka-toy Talk about projection lol That boxy Hummer is more Tonka while Cybrtrk is futuristic most aerodynamic truck ever built. 500 mile range and Tesla Supercharger network makes it clear winner. Where will you Recharge Hummer driving long distance? Ive been drivin Chevys over forty years now but my next truck will be Tesla. That rust n dent resistant stainless steel body makes it worth alone.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I could see painting one color each week to make the paint shop more efficient. Paint 5000 black, 5000 white, 2000 red, 4000 silver etc depending on orders. I am more curious on eventual build quality in China VS Fremont. Or rather how soon might all Model 3 and Model Y be imported. Only 12 months from first shovel to first vehicle. Got to be lower cost to build in China. Same reason Iphones are made in China and not here.cheap labour Btw Chinese made Tesla are for Asian markets only,forget about importing any here. Id think quality should the same as all asembly proces is the same.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla has been getting a direct subsidy. A tax credit (refund) for customers buying a Tesla.Actually no. The tax credit goes to the customer. For 5 more days it is $1,875 credit to the tax payer that buys a new Tesla. That is what I meant... It is still a direct subsidy. I do not get any money in my pocket from the govt. for buying a ICE auto. Yes but the fuel you use is heavily subsidized. Fuel taxes generate a ton of money for governments. EV owners are getting a free ride. Problem w fosil fuel and air polution is it kils 10 milion people each year not to mention milions more geting sick and needing health care Does Goverment pay for that? No people do and if they cant aford it they die. EVs run clean thats one reason why Tesla is so popular and more EVs are coming

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

What I don't understand is the sudden increase in stock price. I haven't seen any rumors or substance justifying the drive up, except maybe an effort to trap the short sellers. Tesla haters are begining to see the light :B https://youtu.be/979G4fYpesY Plus theres those Gigafactories 3 n 4 coming,while GM closes their! Also Ive never heard anyone test driving Tesla saying anything NEgative about it,on the contrary,its that good. Tesla doesnt even ADvertise and stil has customers waiting years for its cars,its all word of mouth. Once more people know about Tesla more sales folow. I showed Tesla review to one of my neigbors and he went and bought two,one for himself and one for his wife. https://youtu.be/kbulCM90w8w

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

As long as Tusk's fan base...AKA Cult, continues to throw money at him...he will continue spend more than he makes... What is his current burn rate in all of his endeavors and what is his revenue from sales ? They haven't jive'd for years and resettled via either stock sale, bond sales or whatever (selling his EV credits, etc) EV's average 2 % take up across Europe and North America and even less generally elsewhere except China where the Chinese are building more Coal Powerplants to drive them:S Musk is a showman, who has a low believability rate. HAHAHAHA Your jealousy is showing bro when You build the best car in the world and SpaceX reusable rockets and Largest Solar energy storage systems and Powerwalls and Solar roofs systems,then you can critisize Btw Youre not keeping up to date with the news Rise of renewable energy in China https://youtu.be/Lvem_WvLiDU China is the largest ev producer in the world https://youtu.be/ruz2oq0jvaA

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

AWD Tesla against 2WD Mustang. Sounds even. So should the funny cars switch to AWD so they could run faster ? Ron Capps track-record setting 3.837-second pass at 339.28-miles-per-hour I agree. The Tesla should race the funny car. At What dealership can one buy Funny car?
