    Will the number of charging stations keep up with the number of Teslas on the road, or will there be wait times as Teslas become more prevalent.

      Nope, the cable is locked into the car. There’s no way to pull it out unless your keyfob or phone is near the car.

      Tesla will either come tow you to the nearest place to get a new tire on or they’ll come bring one to you and will change it so you can be on your way.

  • Victor Hugo
    Victor Hugo 2 months ago

    AP got disabled on single carriageways (no physical divider) or dual carriageways with a narrow divider that may be confused for a lane because there is (at least at the moment) a risk that the neural net will interpret the opposing lane of traffic as a neighbouring lane to your left and attempt to merge you into oncoming traffic. AFAIK.

    Hopefully, Tesla will recalibrate the software and or change the sensor. In the meantime, try using some Rain X, it does a great job at keeping the glass clean in both light and heavy rain.

    Let's take as many dead Teslas to a local charging station as there are cables to plug into them, a full load on your local "supercharger" system. Then, let's make a video of the results and see what charge rate your new supercharger can provide to a full load of dead Teslas........or any other load of EVs at other charging stations. Having 20 charging plugs at 350KW each doesn't mean the little pole transformer is gonna come up with 8 Megawatts for all those cars. It's bullshit!

  • Ed Pardy
    Ed Pardy 3 months ago

    Here’s an idea ; why not have electric cars that instead of having to wait to charge them up , we go to a station and swap out a battery pack for a fully charged one ?

    • 6 Months Later Reviews
      6 Months Later Reviews  3 months ago

      Tesla actually tried that and deemed it not a practical or cost effective solution. They're focusing on decreasing the rapid charging time, which they recently did a few months ago when they introduced supercharger v3.

    Honestly the length of charging combined with just how insanely quiet a Tesla is makes me kinda vomit at the idea of getting one

    I wanna hear my engine when I'm driving and speeding up, and also not spend over an hour charging a car, currently it's a 1 day trip down to my grand dad, that would probably become a 2 day trip with a Tesla, and that would be assuming charging stations are at every gas station in the UK and there's a free spot

      Jackal the Bat Pony true but personally I charge my Tesla with energy from solar panels so environmentally friendly :) and Tesla even sell solar panels too

    • Jackal the Bat Pony
      Jackal the Bat Pony 2 months ago

      @katie nye Not really, where do you think all that electricity comes from? power plants is where it comes from, there's also the process of creating the cars, and the lithium mining for the batteries used

    • katie nye
      katie nye 2 months ago

      Personally for me it’s worth longer charging time because it’s much better for the environment

    • Natalie

      I agree with you! I hate the idea of waiting to charge up when filling up takes a few minutes. BUT if you ever get a chance to drive one, DO IT. It’s honestly the smoothest/nicest car I have ever driven.

  • Rommel Enriquez

    • Nimil Patel
      Nimil Patel 2 months ago

      First of all is this at a supercharger or a regular? Supers will give you more kw. Also, make dure you are not right next to anyone as youll be paired to the other charger. Also, move around and try another charger! Youll look strange but itll help

    As soon as the car goes 300 miles between charges, and charging takes the same time that filling up my gas car takes, I'll switch to an EV. Should be around the corner if Tesla can implement the Maxwell Technologies dry cells and super capacitors. Hopefully existing cars can be upgraded if newer/better battery banks come to market.

      The charger is locked into place while charging with Tesla chargers, so it’s not really an issue. If someone tries to mess with the car, Sentry mode will most likely record what they do for the owner to show to the police.

    It seems the biggest and most previlent thing people are using to shit on Tesla's is some sort of hypothetical thousand mile trip. Like people do you not realize that most people in the United States don't drive over 35 miles a day? Shit I would say 95% or more people don't drive a single charge both ways in a single day. So your 1% use case you are trying to use against Tesla doesn't really work or matter for pretty much everyone.
