I bet most Tesla Semi trucks will be built in Texas using the new 4680 batteries.


I'm not sure if this is still the practice at Tesla. My son who worked for Elon said that Tesla would do a initially a manual assembly at Fremont for their cars and use it as a template for their robots.

If this is the practice, then those robotic arms are already programmed for plug and play.

The Model S Plaid zips down the quarter mile in a staggeringly quick 9.25 seconds at 152.6 mph. The run from 0 to 60 mph happens just 1.98 seconds after the brutally hard launch. The Plaid covers distance so quickly, it's difficult to even register what's happening. The yoke gets light in your hands, your neck muscles strain as your helmeted head digs into the headrest, and your surroundings blur into mere shapes and colors as a quarter mile of pavement vanishes underneath you.

Makes those old muscle cars look and perform like a Model T in comparison.
Unimaginable performance.

I expect Semi to make a similar leap from the soon to be old diesels.

While I wait for my Tesla Model S Plaid I had been getting a lot of incoming data from others testing their cars. In this video I compare these tests vs my own tests in the Bugatti Chiron, Ferrari SF90, McLaren 765LT, Huracan EVO and Porsche Taycan.

Elon really did it this time!! Coming from a weekend drag racer this car is beyond impressive! Stay tuned it’s going to be a wild ride!

Tesla Model S Plaid is Insane!

New model S Plaid test hit on the street. We didn’t use launch control or drag mode yet as the streets are still a bit damp. That’s right 9.3 on a damp street. These cars are no joke

I'm in California for a week and seen many EV charging stations even on nondescript places. And roofs of building, homes and even roofs of parking spaces with solar panels.

Even considering that the state has the most EVs, I can't help but be impressed that this state will be achieving their goals of independence from carbon based electricity sources.
