    I live in Europe and preordered a model y right after battery day guessing they would be made using the new 4680 batteries. When it was confirmed I was super happy. There is no way I'll take delivery of a 2170 legacy model y. I'm sure a lot of people that are in the waiting list are thinking the same thing. I'm ready to wait more for the real deal. Plus it would probably create a lot of confusion if Tesla started production with the legacy design. If I was Elon, I would make sure to deliver what I announced at this point. I highly doubt they would build model y based on 2170 after they repeatedly said they would go straight to 4680.

    Based on the original Plaid+ expectations with same tri motor setup. The current Plaid is limited to 1020hp based on the maximum energy that can be pulled from the battery pack. A 4680 based pack with more kwh. Would allow the motors at least 1100hp. I think Elon claimed max output for the carbon sleeved motor is 400. So 1200hp theoretical max for tri motor setup with a battery pack suited. Quad motor has some applicability in offroad environment. But for track and road use. The trimotor with torque vectoring on rear axel is a lighter and very well balanced approach.

  • Gerhard Kutt
    Gerhard KuttMånad sedan

    Why would TESLA need to add yet another motor to an already amazing car? Tesla seems like a smart company - and don't like superfluous add ons which don't do anything or which could not be designed out of existence. It would be much better to just add gas boosters for the boost acceleration which they are planning on doing for the Roadster and probably trying out as we speak. When TESLA gets up to speed, they tend to switch off motors and run on smaller motors to maintain speed as momentum carries the car quite nicely when wind resistance matches momentum and speed. I think what is cool is TESLA's ability to accelerate whilst running to increase speed for overtaking - which never seems to be mentioned - but which is perhaps more impressive than even 0-60 ... not to mention acceleration on a upward slope - no matter how steep!

    I believe the reason Tesla does not have a Quad-motor Model S is because the batteries would either be unable to keep up, or the extra wear placed on the batteries from the extra strain would be too much.

    I think they should reserve the speed for the Roadster, a large city sedan doesn’t need more speed. In other countries where superchargers don’t exist, improved range would be better. FSD is obviously something they’re working on. Improve build quality and defects.

  • Matthew Boyd
    Matthew BoydMånad sedan

    Tesla doesn't like changing production lines, the Model S didn't get the 2170s so them having a 2170 and 4680 cell line, I think one will be the higher end model, and the 4680 will be the inexpensive model because they are cheaper. They might switch everything to 4680 but might take a long time or not fully happen if it doesn't make sense/cost to benefit isn't there. (Think about how long the Model S refresh took)

  • John D'Amico
    John D'AmicoMånad sedan

    I can appreciate the need to get Berlin running ASAP but building a production for 2170 and the immense costs that would imply only to have to retool it all over a later date...I don't know. How do you price a 2170 model next to a 4680 one? Same problem will arise in the US where Fremont produces a 2170 when Austin starts with 4680. Everyone will want the 4680 for the tech so the only way to convince people to buy 2170's is to lower the price for a car that costs more to build by comparison?

    FSD: A beta you buy to improve the speed of which it becomes FSD and it's already impressive safety for emergency avoidance improves while also donating a good profit margin to Tesla to accomplish their main mission. To accelerate the transition to sustainable energy (and robo taxis means less production needed to do so). That pretty much sums up FSD and it's cost.

    Autopilot is not 100 safe so I don’t recommend to anyone to use it yet! I experienced the car slows down or speed up for no reason. In 2021 autopilot is still not safe! Self steering on small roads are dangerous as well! If you don’t like to drive a car hence you want autopilot then don’t drive any vehicle, because you are putting yourself and others at risk. I love Tesla cars btw I own a Model S and I am over the top with it!

    Elon has stated very explicitly, that FSD price will go up significantly as FSD is becoming a reality. Question is whether your money is best invested in a FSD-package or in a number of TSLA shares as both probably will increase in value as FSD goes into production.

    So, a thirteen old boy does wins the Model 3, and of course he can't drive the car, and he understands, but anxiously awaits turning 16. The car is left parked in one of the two guest spots, and the boy is given the key card, so he and his friends can sit in the car and dream. At first, nothing goes wrong and the thirteen old boy seems to be acting completely responsibly. But then, the boy turns 14 and his pier pressure to joyride the car escalates. Finally, the boy can't take it any more, he and three of his friends decide to go for a joyride, as his parents are out of town. It is about 7pm, a peek time for Chipotle when the boy flies around a corner losing control. He panics and accidental floors it, instead of hitting the break. The car finds its way to the center of the front of a Chipotle, a weak spot for stopping the approaching vehicle. The result, 2 dead, a dozen wounded, 3 people permanently disabled, and many broken bones. What the hell is Chipotle thinking.

    I have a model y ordered from Berlin and I'd be pretty disappointed if it didn't include the new battery pack. Then for me it's the final nail in the coffin to cancel it and go for a car like the Hyundai ioniq 5, which offers a more luxurious car, similar specs otherwise for a much lower price. For the model Y we're still paying an absolute premium as if it was imported from the US. In comparison if you take the base model y long range, you'd be spending 25k dollar more in Europe, it's rediculous. And all that is before government benefits that I don't get living in the Netherlands BTW. But I suppose if they'd use a 25k cheaper price they'd absolutely destroy the model 3 sales, which lost ev benefits this year as well because the price is too high (the rich people buying ev's don't need extra funding, so only cheaper cars have more benefits)

    First off will the quad motor setup make a faster model s The answer to that is yes would a 6 motor Tesla model s with 6 tires make a faster model s The answer to that is yes but going back to doing a quad motor with four tires you run into an issue and the first issue is by having a motor at each tire in the rear and a motor at each tire in the front The vehicle does not know when a tire is slipping. With a tri-motor setup the vehicle knows when there is tire burnout why because in the front is an open differential so empower is sent to that open differential which then powers the front two tires the tire with More traction will rotate at the speed that the vehicle is running in neutral which gives the computer of the Tesla an idea what the other three tires can push. When you go to a quad motor setup you don't have that luxury and now you have to rely on radar to get the information of the movement of the vehicle and relativity to the tire rotation in essence when a car goes to drag most of the force gets sent to the rear it's having two tires in the rear help it there for traction My belief is the open differential up front is desirable on a street car. Now for an off-road vehicle a quad setup is definitely beneficial

    Concerning Tesla's supercomputers, this is a never ending growth area. No matter how good FSD gets by the time it is released, it will never be finished.

I can imagine that Tesla's AI research may eventually be the most important thing Tesla does and cars will become just an afterthought. Tesla AI might even develop into the first sentient AI of the world. Wouldn't that be interesting.

    I'm sufficiently underwhelmed by the new Model S and lack of new battery tech for increased range, that I have decided to stick with my 2019 Model 3 Performance for another 2yrs and pass on upgrading for now. By then I'm expecting a 500mi+ range base Model S with sub-3sec 0-60mph. That'll do me nicely.

    Why is "the paint shop" frequently talked about? With regards tot he Cyber truck everyone was so happy that there did not have to be a paint shop 2nd the the stainless sleet exoskeleton. Is painting a car that expensive, time consuming, or difficult to do?
