    No one should have to be subjected to this…

    Listen. Everyone is entitled to terrible taste in electric vehicles. A CyberYuck™ is still one more vehicle on the road that isn't a gas guzzling planet killer even though it looks like a replica of a prop vehicle for Mad Max that was too hideous to actually make the cut. To each their own...

    I love my R1S but god help you if it ever has a major issue

    @OP Listen, your situation sucks. Having a breakdown on a holiday isn't exactly how any one wants to spend their holiday. Also, when you spent nearly 6 figures on a vehicle, you have an expectation that you will be getting a level of service that reflects the high cost of what you are paying...

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    Nobody is conflating anything. Elon Musk didn't donate anything to the public. You are conflating making the NACS standard open to a "donation to the public." You will pay for the NACS charging port that will be manufactured in your eventual non-tesla vehicle and it will be included in the...

    Thanks for the lesson on how Tesla works. I've been driving electric for over a decade and have owned stock in Tesla since nearly the beginning. I'm well aware of the cost of building out the network. That has nothing to do with my point or your initial argument - that Elon Musk gave...

    Congrats on your beautiful truck! That's a seriously thick and very white hair trapped under the PPF (ewww is right!). Adorable munchkin! I take it the frunk met with her approval? Wishing you many trouble free and adventure laden miles.

    Tesla made the NACS standard open to other manufacturers so that they don't have to pay a royalty. However, EM charges every non-Tesla more per kWh at every super charger station. He did this knowing he controls nearly 100% of NACs charging infrastructure. Nothing is free.

    US Postal Service Tests RDV 500 Van

    This was exactly what I was hoping for when the USPS indicated it was looking to electrify its fleet. A potential large order by the USPS would be huge for Rivian and exactly the kind of investment they need right now.

    Sad world we live in (Houston charger cables being cut)

    While you are probably right (although, don't underestimate how stupid people are) I would still celebrate the one ass hat who finally got his karma.

    Sad world we live in (Houston charger cables being cut)

    On second thought, I think we need to just electrify that part of the cable as a preventative measure and let Darwin do the rest...

    Sad world we live in (Houston charger cables being cut)

    It is a federal offense to disable a smoke detector on an airplane but you can judo chop a charging cord off, potentially stranding countless motorists, and basically there is no penalty... We need to get serious and start passing legislation that provides penalties that have real teeth for...

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    I hear you, but I honestly don't think Tesla sales have plunged because of his behavior. He's been an ass hat for a very long time and that hasn't stopped people before. EV sales have slowed because the market has become saturated and those who wanted EVs have purchased EVs. What we are left...

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    At this point, why on God's green earth would you willingly work for EM if you had any options? Logic would dictate that working on any aspect of the Tesla SC network was as safe a job as you could have at Tesla and then "Me"-lon Musk decides to decimate that entire division. The reality is...

    The cost / benefit / value proposition for Max pack is fading away now that I have access to Tesla Network and my DCFC NACS to CCS adapter.

    Just a word of caution about the Tesla destination chargers. Adapters for those have been around a long time and I frequently run into other non-tesla vehicles, or even Tesla's charging at those at hotels since, you know, they technically are for Teslas. Just don't assume because a hotel has...

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    You need to get your facts straight. Tesla in November of 2022 opened their previously proprietary connector specifications for other manufacturers to adopt. EM hasn't donated anything to the "public." He controls nearly 100% of all NACS infrastructure and he charges non-Teslas more $$ to...

    EPA Test Data confirms Standard Battery and Standard+ are software locked versions of either Large or Max pack batteries

    You can also charge a lithium-ion battery to 100% which is what I have been doing with my i3s for 7 years. I've lost less than 4 percent battery capacity in that time. Nissan Leafs and I3's that have been around for over a decade and charged to 100% because of short range have shown a pretty...

    Well, looks like Electrify America sure as hell became a lot more relevant overnight. Frankly, I'm almost glad I don't have an NACS port and can just avoid the inevitable sh*t show at Tesla SC stations that aren't being updated/upgraded. A sea of Chevy Bolts, FI50 Lightnings and everything...

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    I'm not sure I understand your post. Tesla didn't dominate the NACS charging standard - they created it. Its their standard. My thread was a warning that adopting a Tesla standard was putting too much power in the hands of a madman and...surprise. EM eliminates the entire charging team at a...
