    Were laws of physics broken? If not, I'm not that interested :)

    Makes you wonder if they did the EPA testing to get the numbers with 33 psi in the tires.

    Bigger engine, bigger motor? More options. CUV perhaps? Could be one way to beat the Outlander plug in to the market here in the USA.

    I suspect the use of the Spark battery makes the most...

    The news, for a Volt, should not really highlight the ICE. The battery tech is the real news. When do we get those details? I think folks like ari_c couldn't care less about the engine.

    The seat heaters are a great feature. Also, I don't know if I have run the actual resistive heater above about 30*F here in SE PA. Seat heater and hat and reasonable coat in the winter and I've...

    Big oops. 2P96S is more correct. Otherwise, the other way we noted above would be way wrong :)

    Fewer cells meaning perhaps pairs instead of triplets. Should be the same wiring and bus bar sizes, I believe.

    Imagine triplets of 15Ah * 3 being replaced by maybe 25 Ah * 2 in the same series of...

    I see Elon advertising all the time. Cover of Atlantic magazine this month. Maybe others. Marketeers place people into magazine interview situations all the time. Celebrity and corporate...

    With a cost of only $4K more, Tesla says they get more range with the Model S DWD by using two smaller motors over one big RWD motor. On the highway, they could take the rear motor offline (I don't...

    16* 3.3? With many Volt owners over 40 mile AER, only the leadfoots are seeing 3.3. When I get over 40miles in my 2011, that is more like 4.0. Give me 16 kWh of usable battery and I think 62+...

    I just fault them for not dumping when the price was $280. Slow trigger finger, the Germans.

    PiP = HOV access.

    Great - we ship our money overseas to buy a fully imported plug in for people to possibly not plug it in and get free access to an HOV lane. Maybe we should re-think this?

    With a proper winter coat and even, a hat, i don't mind driving in 30 F degree weather with the heat off. I have a drive tomorrow and 48* morning temperature and I won't use the heater but will use...

    If I worked in the area my daughter does, I could go almost 100% all EV like you results show. A trip down there and back is under 30 miles and if someone did that every weekday and one or more on...

    My belief is that if anything goes wrong, it is the loss of one cell. The pack is made up of "triplets". If a cell goes bad, the triplet sitting in the 1/3 of the battery should signal a low...

    It looks like it may be a battery module installed behind each solar module? If not, then the box they describe is only 1.2kWh. Hopefully modular and expandable. Solar city's home module is 10...

    Sag, one thing to look at now is if you order a Model S now, you can have a December delivery. Generally, if they are producing faster now they will run down backlog pretty fast. December is a big...

    The price spreadsheets show one thing, that Tesla saw many sales of P85+ and thought to go further and make an AWD supercar of sorts. It is a money grab and the company needs money. They will sell...

    I use the manual method on my 2011 to relearn, but someone here said that the mode isn't available on the newer models. After a tire repair a while back, I had to reset them due to one of the...

    44,000 miles, stock tires except one which had a bubble and I put on a used tire ordered on sale from a tire reseller nearby.

    Should last 15k longer. I ran a set of tires on a Chrysler Concord...
