Charge Limit Warning?
Got into my car this morning to begin my 190+ mile daily commute and the following "Warning" appeared on my screen:
"Charging repeatedly beyond daily driving needs will shorten battery life. Would you like to lower the charge limit?"
I charge to 90%, which typically leaves 30-40 miles in reserve at the end of the day, which seems like a reasonable number to me. This leaves me wondering whether Tesla is suggesting I should be trying to cut it a little closer and charge to 80%, or perhaps everyone who charges to 90% is getting this warning?
What's funny about that is, according to Elon, there is nothing we can do (I include charging every day to 100% as "nothing") that will truly hurt the battery, hence the unlimited mileage warranty.
Sometimes I have a hard time parsing Elon's comments with corporate policy or my cars complaints lol
Accelaration is one aspect of a sporty car. Probably the most important for the US.
In Germany the top speed is important as well. With the limitation to 210kph your are forced to stay in the right lane of the Autobahn. Every car with 200 PS is faster. Combine that with the range issue under high speed conditions (would expect a drop below 100 miles) and the vehicle price and you have a good explanation for the sales figures over here..
surely if they could do it, they would have updated it along with the p85d.
Full confession???? Really? The sales advisor told me I could order, ORDER a 4dr any way I wished, you utter clown! I said those exact words in my post. But you being the child you are, you decided to sensationalize it ala the National Inquirer. Fine. I only wish I could stuff my fist down your pencil neck. Do you at least have the guts to reveal yourself? Nope! Hiding like a cockroach is your forte'. I'd be happy to provide you my name, address, and phone number. Or we could meet at City Oyster in Delray Beach where I'd enjoy snapping you like a twig.
ummmm 35,000 sales ummm make that 33,000 or maybe less
The stock need support. the business doesn't justify the price. Unless Elon tweets up a storm the share price slides.
Speaking of China - here is what it looks like in China with ICE vehicles blocking a supercharger site.
You can but 3 e-golfs for the price of a decent P85. Park them 75 miles apart and you get 225 miles without any wait for charging, about the same as a TESLA
Sure Tesla makes a better car, but the E-Golf will take some market share. VW, AUDI, Nissan, etc are àll starting to close the door to Tesla selling a low priced EV.
Tesla is a flash in the pan. The flash is just about over. They are done expanding into new markets. China and Japan are still question marks..
Thanks for sharing cermak. I didn't know that piece of trivia and am wondering why you do! Never saw that one on Jeopardy.
((( Also, on Wednesday Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas slashed his 2015 delivery estimates of the Model X from 15,000 to 5,000 )))
It's only a 66% miss. Not a big deal.
We should make the Industrial Revolution voluntary. If you want out then you don't have to use any of the inventions and benefits of the IR. Live in a cave and eat grass.
Increasing the range will help drive demand.
