This long overdue episode focuses on service tips, the PWS Retrofit (Boombox enabled!), PCS failures covered under the HV Battery Warranty, and our new partnership with NotATeslaApp.com!
While we share our "in the dead of winter" range and supercharger test results with Middy our 2020 Model Y, we also comment on Tesla's new Engagement Hub called "Engage" as well as vent a little after the Cybertruck RC pre-order fail.
Off peak charging is something Middie does all the time, and it's still as simple as plug it and forget it. Learn more about this growing trend and, if you're a Texas Tesla owner, find out how to save money charging your car at home using the same software Middie uses every night!
More range tests, now at lower fall temperatures, give us our first indication of the Power of the Heat Pump! And, are people still submitting new voice commands to teslavoice.glideapp.io?
As a 9 year old I experienced my first Porsche ride, and driving the new 2020 Porsche Taycan was quite the experience! You'll learn if my love affair with Middie and Middy is over, and find out if the Model Y is quieter than the Model 3.
We take advantage of having Middie and Middy by performing a range test that produces surprising results. We review Ameren's Managed EV Charging Pilot that just finished along with my first impressions of Speed Limit Sign Recognition in 2020.36!
A Life With Middie exclusive group podcast with representatives from Ameren, the Electric Power Research Institute, and EV.Energy! We discuss an innovative pilot program focused on making off peak charging literally as easy as set it and forget it!
We'll share details of our recent delivery of Middy, our new 2020 Tesla Model Y. You'll learn why it's a different experience the second time around, and discover recent voice command updates, ones that don't work on the Model Y (yet), and others that don't exist anymore (that I'll personally miss!)
First of all... MIDDY LIVES!!! We'll talk a little about us getting ready to take delivery of our LR AWD, MSM, FSD, White Interior, Gemini Wheels Model Y named Middy on July 16, 2020. You'll hear how to get ready for your delivery, how to know the status of your order before you hear from Tesla, and our new segment entitled "And Now, A Word From Another Listener"!
We'll reveal why we named our Model 3 "Middie", what it didn't have as standard equipment in May 2018 that it has now, do a deep dive on Traffic Light / Stop Sign Control, and finish with a Voice Commands List Update!
