I want pics, sounds awesome
Amazing, isn’t it? That’s the way to save $$ though…efficiency, efficiency, efficiency.
Will any company make a further range car for the money than tesla at any point in the conceivable future?
I mean I could order 1000 tesla cells and make a trailer and attach it to a board. But besides that.
Multiple gigafactories being built worldwide by different companies so I would imagine so. But that’s just the cells. Lots of other stuff in the car and it just takes $$$ and huge manufacturing volume to get those costs down.
Yeah it seems like that is where Tesla is continuously hitting hardest right now. Tons of other companies could and probably will out-spend Tesla if the wanted, but electric reluctance in most major car brands means they will stick with what they know works (cars that burn gas) while elon is out here burning money.
IMHO they’ll all come around eventually, they’ll have to. But they have billions invested in the way they do things now so it will take them a while.
Yep. To state the obvious, I think that is the major sticking point for moving towards renewables. Not just in the car world either. Every industry. There is just too much momentum. Money, infrastructure, habits, manpower, etc. It’s taken a ton of human effort to get where we are today with power generation and usage, and we are not about to slow down that freight train any time soon haha.
It’s possible, but not keeping up with price, charging experience and a few other things, the obsession with optimizing every little details is what sets them apart, and software also, something that other still have a lot to do to catch up
You don’t managed to get a car for 335 miles of range to 400+ without changing your battery if you don’t go over everything you can and improve as much as you can (and they are not done, and never will be probably)
And on the other side, you see new cars being launched today, with a battery close to the same size that have almost half the range
are we breaking in mission impossible style to get all the 4680’s?
need a funnel to slowly suck from their 4680 production line
Guys lets just do a group buy for a Model S Plaid+ when it comes out, and cannibalize it for the battery. Dont think about all the logistics of how that would or would not work. Just sign up for my pre-order now!
Vengeance will be mine…oh, yes…some day.
