Tesla seems to be making some serious headway with its Full Self-Driving (FSD) suite with the release of V12.3. But while FSD is currently the company’s flagship advanced driver-assist system, basic Autopilot still plays a huge role in Tesla’s electric cars. With this in mind, Tesla seems to be doubling down on educating drivers about the proper use of basic Autopilot, as well as the system’s limitations.

Teslarati

The Tesla Cybertruck attracts an equal amount of supporters and critics, with the latter group seemingly determined to prove that the stainless steel all-electric pickup truck is weak, useless, and dangerous. Critics, for one, have argued that the Cybertruck’s steel body could get dangerously hot under the Sun — but as per a recent test by a Tesla owner, this is not necessarily the case.

Not to be constrained by genre, he wrote zombie mysteries , historical fiction , pirate adventure tales, and westerns. But by the spring of 1938, Hubbard started honing his craft in science fiction.

As a BYD investor, I'm upset to see them waste so much money on dead technologies like PHEVs/EREVs. As the economies of scale disappear for ICE, so too will they disappear for hybrids that depend on the existence of ICE. BYD should be accelerating full speed on pure BEVs, but they waste half their effort looking to the past with hybrid technologies - technologies that have been shown in numerous studies to be a major source of toxic emissions, even when charged consistently.
