Episode 47 - Affordable Semi

November 26, 2017

Pricing was announced this week for the Tesla Semi and it was $150K to $180K. Considering that a diesel semi costs about $120K I'd say that is affordable. But the haters came out in force saying they expected it to be $100,000. Seriously? I could spend more than that on a Model X! 


Got a Model S or X P90DL? Want it to be a 100D? It looks like Tesla is making those upgrades soon. IF you have $20K to spare.

Tip of the Week

With winter coming you may be tempted to postpone waxing your Tesla until warmer weather. Now you can do it in the garage. With zero water! Their waterless wash & wax is easy to use... just spray a light film and wipe it with a microfiber cloth. Buff with another and you've got a real wax shine. Great for apartment dwellers or those, like me, that like to do it in a warm garage. 

They sent me a sample and I was able to wash and wax my Model S with Zero H2O in about 40 minutes.
