Elon Musk plans to inquire with Daimler about collaboration on an electric sprinter van

I don’t believe that this is likely, but it does make a lot of sense. Daimler makes excellent vans but they really need help with batteries. It was a Daimler engineer who said that the Tesla semi defies the laws of physics. https://electrek.co/2018/11/19/tesla-mercedes-benz-electric-sprinter-van-elo...

Advice - take a Tesla M3 performance model test drive!

In the U.S. Tesla now has test drives of the M3 performance version in almost every Store. If you are at all interested I’d advise taking a test drive.

With 450HP the car is a blast to drive!

Re: Model 3

I was not trying to dissagre we just don't know when air suspension will come and when the 200k units will be hit. I believe it’s clear that Tesla is planning to hit the 200k deadline in early July. We’ll know if I’m correct in a few weeks. I was correct: https://electrek.co/2018/07/12/tesla-tsla-f...

Oh, I am earning $10 per day on my channel from these Model 3 videos. My goal is to cover the cost of the car (monthly) by the end of the year. I am 40% of the way to that goal in the 6 weeks I have been posting videos of my car. :mrgreen:

Congratulations! Great news!

Re: Model 3

I think that a video about diy paint protection films and diy ceramic coatings would be popular.

I liked your cool screen video but I believe that a ridgid cover close the the back and over the top edge with space for air circulation would work better.

I think Elon said 2019 for the air suspension.

Good information in this post and video by Jack Rickard about the M3 battery pack

The information in this post and video on the M3’s battery pack by our friend Jack Rickard is worth tolerating his presence on the video to obtain imo: http://evtv.me/2018/05/tesla-model-3-gone-battshit/ The two 23 cell modules are at each edge of the pack and 67 1/2 inches long, 11 1/2 inches wide ...

Warren, If you treat the battery properly, I bet you will have over 70% capacity in 10 years. I bet that in ten years you will be able to get a much better battery for a few thousand dollars. Remember the Tesla Roadster upgraded to a 400 mike range? They’re obscenely expensive because they need to ...

Congratulations Matt! We reserved an M3 before the car was revealed. The most expensive car we ever considered. Our previous high was about 12k for a used civic. My goal was to make enough on TSLA stock to pay for a M3. We made a little over 200k last year on TSLA options, mission accomplished. We’r...

Re: Tesla powered (with Volt Pack) Honda Accord 0-60 2.7 seconds

He is also using a Chevy Volt EV battery pack, which supports a higher discharge than Tesla’s battery I just figured it was smaller/lighter, I didn't realise it also had a higher discharge capability. That must make it greatly over-specced in the Volt, which is a nice bonus for future hot-rodders. ...
