  • Tesla Motors roundup: Management realignment, F/X concerns, Orwellian twist [View news story]
    This is just sadly the effect of end of quarter push. Now its over, so NA resumes to normal operation for new orders. Bad side effect of quarter-to-quarter need of satisfying investors...

  • Tesla Motors roundup: Management realignment, F/X concerns, Orwellian twist [View news story]
    I didn't experience any issue myself, but read some on forums. Nothing is perfect and some actually quickly go to the top of the chain for answers. I find it a bit intense to to it, and would probably not do it myself unless something very serious happens. But knowing that you could get answer from a VP in a day is comforting.

    For those who are not aware, Jerome Guillen is absolutely fantastic at customer-satisfaction. Like, you can email him with a concern and he usually answers within a day with a personal message (not an automated crap) with real satisfaction. He's great at making stuck things moving again smoothly. I've met him personally at the new Montreal Service Center grand opening night. Truly a good guy.

    Yes. Its fascinating that its written in plain text and still people can't read. Let me copy-paste the only thing they need to read: "change lanes with the simple tap of a turn signal". Simple question, who is doing the "tap of a turn signal". Hint ? The one responsible for actions and consequences that sits in the driver's seat. There are driver's assistance features.

    Its automatic lane change after driver has initiated it (with blinker signal). It does it pretty well and the responsibility still remains in the drivers hands to look in his mirrors first.

  • Tesla Needs To Rethink Its Charging Network [View article]
    Funny article.

    CCGI has 119 "not so Fast" charging stations across North America. Being, at best, dual unit that makes 238 actual "60kW in the best cases" charging outlets.

    Tesla has 103 Supercharging stations in North America. Since they range from 4 to 8 outlets and I don't want to count, lets say they average 5 (very Pessimistic) that would makes 515 charging outlets. And they are much faster with a range of 90 to 120kW. Latest installed units are 135kW (car limited to 120kW right now, probably about to change).

    Thanks for playing, try again.

  • Measuring Model S Momentum By App Download Ranks [View article]
    I downloaded the app 10 months before getting my Model S... But it it was actual download count it would be interesting, ranks numbers are misleading at best, the Tesla app although useful, is not that much exciting compared of all the other app being downloaded every weeks.

    There is also other useful app available that are being offered (third party) on a regular basis (VisibleTesla, Tesla Model S extension for Chrome) that dilute the download rate.

  • Tesla Motors to debut Model III in 2016 or 2017 [View news story]
    I think the 400 miles battery upgrade for existing roadster is more interesting.

    Quote from the article: “The Roadster had an old generation battery,” he told us. “We’ll upgrade it to a new generation battery pack and it should have a range of about 400 miles, which will allow you to drive from LA to San Francisco non-stop.”
