This is a true, sad story of the depression that can haunt a man


Brad lived in California and was a lifelong environmentalist.


He was sick of the world; of Covid 19, Brexit, Russian belligerence, global warming, racial tensions, and the rest of the disturbing stories that occupy media headlines.


Brad drove his car into his garage and then sealed every doorway and window as best he could. He got back into his car and wound down all the windows, selected his favorite radio station and started the car.


Four days later, a worried neighbor peered through his garage window and saw him in the car.


She notified the emergency services and they broke in, pulling Brad from the car.


A little sip of water and, surprisingly, he was in perfect condition, but his Tesla had a dead battery.


Oh my gawd that’s hilarious. I’m copying it my keeper notes.

Technical note, it would probably take a few weeks or so to run the battery dead LOL. [emoticon].

He didn't find the exhaust pipe to connect a hose?

Model S & X recall in China...only 30,000 that were imported from the USA

https://auto.hindustantimes.com/auto/ne........ound-30-000-cars/amp-41603438547027.html

Then the question about the ones here and other parts of the world

As said a few hundred posts ago...Tusk hasn’t setup his corporation to handle a large recall

From revision control/documentation, to parts, to service without dealerships with service facilities. Will Tusk have loaner vehicles ?

Wait to see how Tusk handles this China recall

This is just personal vehicles...commercial (semi) will be much more demanding and with less patience

Have had recalls on Honda and Subaru that took over a year to get the parts installed.
How long will Tesla take?

In a presentation with DRES Dalhousie, Jeff Dahn unveiled the results of his new battery, which showed that his battery could last at least 3.25 million miles. In this video, I discuss how the applications of this battery will change the car industry and grid energy storage industry forever.

Tesla fined $14M in Germany for battery recycling violation

Tesla has been ordered to pay a fine of 12 million euros ($14 million) in Germany for alleged non-compliance with a law requiring automakers that sell electric cars to take back batteries to dispose of in an environmentally friendly way.

Tesla reported the fine, which was imposed by the German Federal Environmental Agency, in a filing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In the filing Tesla said it has continued to take back battery packs as required under vehicle end-of-life rules and the fine is primarily related to administrative requirements.

Just thought that I would add some other news. Please explain that it was administration requirements that they were fined. Probably tracking the disposal.
