    Tesla is just making excuses to cancel the 500 plus range on the CT. I hold a CT reservation. Remember 400 mile range doesn't mean you get an actual 400 mile range and so on..

    Can you comment on the safety ratings of Tesla cars? I can’t seem to locate stats from nhsta that approximate what is quoted. In fact, I’m seeing Elon getting in trouble for confounding the safety specs. Don’t get me wrong, I love Tesla; I just can’t find evidence to support this claim.

  • Terry Forth
    Terry ForthMånad sedan

    Agree with your assessment that the presentation was underwhelming (especially from an investor’s perspective) due to the lack of surprises. In particular, that they canceled plaid+ because plaid was fast enough, along with the $10k price increase, had a lot of people feeling that they were going straight to plaid+ specs 😔.

  • Chris Young

  • Andrew Diamond

    11:45 Tri motor Cybertruck needs above 500 because that will drop to 200-250 while towing. Anything less risks making it difficult to traverse supercharger to supercharger reliably.

  • brad lambert

    You asked for an opinion on the calipers. I prefer red or yellow over black. They need to make a couple of options available to give it some flare. I’ve ridden in the Porsche Taycan and with their Ice Grey color and yellow Calipers, it’s sharp looking.

  • Don Lake

    Before the S launch yesterday my order site showed a delivery in June. Today it shows a delivery in August for my Model S LR. To say the least I am very angry. I ordered it in Feb. 2021. Who knows if that date will be true. Seven months to order a car is insane. Probably will cancel and get a new Mercedes S class. Well over half the Tesla owners I speak to are very unhappy with the repair and service of their cars. My Mercedes dealer just repaired my S Class in one day and I got chocolate chip cookies with valet parking.

    Here is my question. SEblacks Channel Tesla Fremont Flyover had a video from 6/8 and I counted about 456 Model S cars in the Fremont temp Lot. What the heck are they? Long Range (only 22-30 miles more than the Plaid 🤣) or what? If they are Long Range only, that is about $36.5 million in inventory just sitting there. Why are they not shipping??

    People are confused as to why the 10K increase in price. Margins. With the new 10K EV credits coming soon, it protects their profit margins. They had to do it now before the credits kick in.

  • Stormspark
    StormsparkMånad sedan

    The 0-60 that they achieved with the Roadster and Plaid is the limit. You cannot accelerate any faster with a drivetrain, because that's the limit of tire traction. The only way to exceed this is to use thrust of some sort (which is what they are doing with the Roadster and its cold gas thrusters).

    I really enjoy your channel. A few comments: 1) How is it we don’t see or read anything about the ambient interior lighting for the new Tesla’s, 2) Is the chip issue a non-issue if I order my new Tesla today?; and finally, How is it on the configuration/order page for the Tesla’s the downward arrow doesn’t go anywhere when you have made a selection regarding how you want you new Tesla configured? Thanks

  • Tesla Porn
    Tesla PornMånad sedan

    If Tesla is to keep growing, it makes sense not to have too many similar models in production. I.e plaid plus and plaid models. I think it’s a very good move. Nobody ever complained when the cars were 250miles and now it’s 400miles with way faster charging. Tesla doesn’t need the manufacturing complexity and the resources depletion of the plaid plus. Not if everyone who ordered is to get their car ASAP. These are the other ways to view the no plaid plus decision

    30 superchargers in a week feels underwhelming. 52 × 30 = 1560 chargers / year. If they already have 25000 chargers, it would take the 16 years to get back to that same capacity. Are they slowing down the rate of supercharger deployment?

    I can’t believe you can play Cyberpunk in a Model S. That was just for demonstrating the compute power right? Does the car have an actual graphic cards built in? Like a RTX 3080 or something similar? If yes, why does it need such a strong GPU? After all the UI is pretty basic. Or is the graphic being computed by not a GPU, but another component which the Tesla has? It makes no sense to me how that works. If someone could explain, that would be great.

  • Nine2Nine
    Nine2NineMånad sedan

    So happy that they are finally admitting that a range above 400 miles per charge is silly. It only benefits a very small number of people but jacks the price for everyone else who will likely never take advantage of it. Even though I can't afford this car if they apply this logic across their product lines going forward we should start to see cheaper prices in the not-so-distant future.

  • Ryamole

    The excuse I've seen from them for not giving a 500 mile range car because "superchargers are close enough for 400 miles, we don't need 500.." and "most people won't make it past 400 miles without stopping anyways" is so stupid because who wants to stop frequently to sit at a supercharger.. If I could make it to my destination without having to charge I'd take it. Yeah I'd still have to stop to go to the bathroom, but thats like 2-3 minutes rather than 30 at a supercharger..

    The problem with a 400 mile range is that it means you only get about 320 miles at most superchargers in under 30 min. I want a new long range S, but want it with front and rear one piece castings AND the structural 4680 battery pack.

    @ymcpa73 Somewhat true, but some people travel to places where a plane ticket is prohibitively expensive, (NO major airport[s]) and driving with even a gas vehicle is "cheaper", much less an EV. I understand this is an edge case, but I was looking forward to the Plaid+, sold a car to bank cash to put $$$ down... now I'm screwed. I travel like this several times a year, now I have to think about getting another ICE vehicle... at inflated prices if available due to the electronics shortage.

  • ymcpa73


    Månad sedan

    I'm curious how often a person who can afford a Model S Plaid actually goes on really long road trips. I'm willing to bet the vast majority fly and would never consider a long trip. THat is why so many Model S and X are sold with low mileage. The owners don't really drive them on long trip. The range anxiety is more for the average person who will drive to save on the cost of plane tickets for the whole family.

  • Aves Raggiana
    Aves RaggianaMånad sedan

    The reason why Tesla events are so underwhelming is because Elon Musk insists on speaking at them. Also 390 miles of EPA/Tesla rated range equals about 270 miles in real world, no-$hit-you-really-need-to-charge-now range.

  • Ross Gressick
    Ross GressickMånad sedan

    I agree, the logic is flawed on why we don't need a EV that can do 500+ miles. 1: Not all Super Chargers are at locations where amenities are convenient. Being able to keep moving until you reach a more acceptable SC location or to go to a refresh stop of your choice without it hindering you drive is always more preferred. 2: Even though the 21 Model S has a improved HVAC system for both cold and hot weather, it will still have reduced range either way. When you factor in how cold weather can affect the range overall on A: energy used to power the HVAC B: Cold weather in general on teh batteries, then you could say that you may only have available range in the low to mid 400 miles. 3: Charge state buffer. Now, we all know that we do not go from 0% to 100% on every charge. The EPA range is when you COMPLETE drain the battery beyond the indicated 0%. This creates a false impression to users, especially when Tesla tries to keep you with the 10% to 90% buffer on trips for battery life. This would mean that on a average road trip, the car would only allow you to go about 412 miles before forcing a Super Charger stop. (if between 20-80, then only low-mid 300s). So yes, you do want a EV to have a 500+ mile battery for long drives because only then will you be able to drive the distance that a ICE vehicle would do on the same trip in reality. Tesla could do a 500 mile battery but software lock it to 400 creating a artificial upper and lower end buffer to help extend battery life allowing the end user to truly go to 0% and beyond without concern of killing the battery. This can also create the false impression that you can charge the quicker since the top end is lower than actual so it would appear that you can reach that 100% mark faster because it can push in electricity at a higher rate.

    I agree with your comment that the event was underwhelming and uninformative, except perhaps for the privileged few who attended in person.

  • BROis
    BROisMånad sedan

    There are still parts of the country where there aren't superchargers. I've had to deal with this a few times already when I get to the last supercharger on my route and have to charge fully to make the round-trip back to that same supercharger. What this means is I have to be more careful with mileage, concerned about battery drain (cabin overheat protection), etc. I wouldn't spend $150k on the Plaid+ just for the extra range, but to say that range doesn't matter is the opposite from Elon's previous messages. I suspect it was cancelled for different reasons completely. The Plaid+ will effectively be the Roadster and I'm cool with it. I like the look/size better than the S.

    "640K [of computer memory] ought to be enough for anybody." - _falsely attributed to Bill Gates, 1981._ Gates never actually said this, but it did reflect the attitude of some short-sighted people in the computer industry at the time, and Musk's "400 miles is enough for anybody" quote is going to sound equally ridiculous some day.

    Aptera already shattered the drag coefficiency so Elon is just being a classic billionaire ego. No one beats the Aptera range or drag coefficient

    Plaid is making my June '20 MS LR+ with 0-60 in 3.7s and 402 miles range and free SC for life seem like a real bargain!. That said I NEED >500 EPA range for AZ, UT, NM. OR more SC in state and national parks. I have a 600 mile Aptera on order. I hope it does stellar on NHTSA crash tests!

    Over 400 miles makes sooo much sense because of owners that live in cold climates lose up to 40% range !!

    anyone else think plaid+ will be a software add on like the acceloration boost in the model 3?

    I really like the red brake pads. They look cool and the black ones look like any normal brake pads.

    alright but like what if tesla partnered with like dodge or jeep for their trackhawk cars and said like: "hey I know you think this is good but what if we put some motors in it and then give it back and you let us know what you think". I know a lot of ppl like the design of tesla and so do I but my dad still hasn't switched because he needs a bigger car and a fast car cause...well yea...It would be cool for tesla to just come out with a full on suv and not worry about the range and just worry about the space. idk if that even made sense but it would be cool to see. also I know some ppl will buy this car just because of the ps5 level gaming system
