    Hay, zac & Jesse. There is a technology out there that would save a Diesel engine and it is water engine! It uses just little amount of diesel to start the engine to get it up to temp them it is switch to water. This maybe the answer to the long-haul trucks? The only think that comes out of the pipes is water! But if it comes out, this would be great!

    Hi

    Zac and Jesse

    I’m a big fan of your videos and the depth of knowledge you provide.

    I have a question regarding the vehicle side of Tesla. So I was wondering is it possible to create an extra power supply in the boot or trunk in which you could connect a portable backup battery pack that would supply power to the main battery. This battery pack could be supplied by Tesla’s mobile technicians if the car was to run out of power then this would enable the vehicle to reach a charging station without it having to be towed by a recovery truck?

    I'm not a technical person so I was just curious about if it was possible.
    I don’t know if you could relay this to Elon at the truck unveiling?

    Keep up the tremendous work

    Semi Unveiling…
    I just wanted to make a comment on the latest image that has been released. This looks like a box truck to me, if the rendering is remotely realistic. Look at the distance between the rear of the cab and the front of the (assumed) trailer. No where near enough clearance to turn an articulated vehicle.
    May be the surprise Elon has mentioned???

    Best News All WEEK !!! Daimler is going to produce an Electric School Bus !! [Head Slap] That is so Smart !!!! Why didn't someone think of doing this sooner ??? A school Bus with a 100 mile range would fit PERFECTLY with the Split Driving Schedule of most School Buses.

    In your Supercharger report, you mention permitted, under construction and newly opened. Is there any way to get data for stations that have been expanded? Some that started with 4 now have 8 or more. Many other sites are similar, I'm sure, but we don't seem to have a reporting category for added chargers at existing stations.

    So Zack & Jesse, you're going to the Tesla Semi unveiling! Are you planning to drive Sparky? Or to fly? Reason I ask is it seems you would be far more consistent in reducing carbon emissions if you take the time to drive Sparky or at least take the train, which is proven to be less polluting than jet planes. I'm hoping you'll walk the talk, even if it takes longer. I'm so disappointed in so many progressive folks who believe in human caused climate change, yet continue to jet around the country or world! While it certainly must be attempting to take the plane and reduce travel time I will say with thankfulness that I have not flown in a jet plane since the mid-1970s. I'm not saying I never will again, but I would have to be persuaded that there's no other possible way to get where I want to go. And then again, maybe I don't need to go where I want to go!

    I want to add that I think you guys are doing a great job in introducing people to the amazing developments in electric vehicles and other tools that reduce or totally eliminate carbon emissions! While I am not yet able to afford and EV, I have invested in a cordless chainsaw and lawnmower, ( DeWalt chainsaw & Ego mower). I now actually enjoy cutting my firewood and mowing the lawn! Keep up the great work, you guys are awesome!

    On the Internet statement Royal Caribbean Cruise Line working with O3B for fast internet on there ships and I can attest that at least on the Oasis and Quantum class ships their internet is faster than my DSL at home so I wish Tesla the best as it does work.

    wont be to many Australians showing up in Tesla's model S base price is $105,000 and model X is $180,000 at the same time we have record low wage growth, record under employment and record high's for cost of living. pretty much were all broke.

    Now You Know, you realize that Tesla has already gotten most of the tax credits and will run out LONG before other companies. I don't know why the legislation made the tax credit on a per company basis, but it is better to get rid of it now than wait for it to cripple Tesla. The 35k base model 3 can already compete with ICE cars without the credit so the tech has advanced enough to no longer need incentives. There is no reason to give some EVs credits and not others. Just let it die and the playing field will be level. please.

    Concerning the (BMW/VW/Ford/Audi) high power charging stations to be installed in Europe by 2020; I wonder what their definition of “station” is compared to a Supercharger station. I tend to think that their “station” consists of one charging unit supporting 1 or 2 cars (like metro level 2 stations) where as a Supercharger will support 8-20 cars simultaneously from a single station. So the distinction between Superchargers and the new European stations may be much larger in terms of charging stall numbers.

    Question please……we’ve all done it, been late to react and car beeps, shows red car in front so we brake. What if we don’t react? Would our car stop for us? I’m not brave enough to test so please help me understand£. Thanks for a great show guys.

    As a matter of curiosity, how are you going to pay for superchargers? I've been looking around for the answer on the internet, but I've not been able to come up with the answer. How will the superchargers know who are and aren't due to pay? Is it the website that's going to determine it (assuming you have put your credit card in)? Maybe you could talk about this in "Tesla Time News". Thank you!

    The bogus journalism is likely to do with those in control of the media having large short positions in Tesla stock. 

    It’s no secret that this kind of thing goes on. Short sellers want the stock price to tumble so they can profit, and the media is an effective way to manipulate the price.

    I’m long on Tesla all the way.
